 Beat Recession Worries the Japanese Way: Workers Smash Plates Against Wall!
Want a stress buster? We suggest you go down the Japanese road and start smashing plates against the wall! This unconventional form of anti-stress therapy is gaining popularity among several stressed-out Japanese workers.

Workers, suffering from recession blues, are flocking to The Venting Place in Tokyo where they pay to hurl crockery against a concrete wall.

"To break something, as all of us know from experience, is something extremely exhilarating and it helps bring down pent-up anger. We hope to become the new way businessmen and women relieve their stress," the Telegraph quoted Katsuya Hara, who leads a team of chiropractors operating the therapy, as saying.

Stressed visitors choose the crockery they would like to destroy, ranging from 200 yen (1.40 pounds) for a small cup to 1,000 yen (7.40 pounds) for a larger plate-smashing dish.

After wearing protective clothing, they are then taken to the inside of a van, where they are able to hurl their crockery of choice, and swear, at concrete slabs.
