Nagurareya never stops trying. You can' knock him down. That's why I would never pay to
hit him. I came to Kabukicho tonight because I feel the need to get absolutely
slaughtered. What's the strangest thing I've ever seen here? A hostess decided to flash me
one night. Now that's unusual

I think fighting is a necessary evil for Nagurareya. I wouldn't pay to hit him. I'm
searching for happiness here in Kabukicho. The weirdest thing I've ever scene here was
samurai yakuza fighting with swords.
KARRIE AND DEBBIE / ACCOUNTANT
We think Nagurareya's situation is a bit sad, but at least he's taken some initiative to
make money. It's his business so we paid him. This is the strangest thing I've ever seen

While our intrepid reporters were
scouting the Golden Gai's nomiya for Tokyo's intelligentsia and a good scotch, they
literally stumbled across another of Shinjuku's infamous personalities, Nagurareya, the
human punching bag. Every night this former boxer does his rendition of Fight Club.
Anyone can swing at him for a full minute for JY1000. We asked audience and participant
alike what they thought of this unusual way of earning money, whether they'd pay to take a
shot, what they were doing in Kabukicho and what was the weirdest thing they've ever scene
is this demi-monde.

I think Nagurareya's manner of earning extra income is weird. I wouldn't pay to hit him.
I'm in the neighborhood to listen to music. Junkies are the strangest characters I've seen

I feel bad for him. What a way to make a living! I'd pay twice to hit him. Tonight I'm out
with friends. I've seen a lot strange things here, but this tops them all.
