OSAKA (Kyodo) An ordinance went into force Wednesday in Osaka Prefecture that bans people under 16 years old from entering entertainment facilities such as karaoke boxes and bowling alleys after 7 p.m.

The prefecture said the regulation is stricter than similar ordinances in 43 other prefectures, which usually prohibit minors from visiting such facilities after 10 p.m. or 11 p.m.
