I cannot find poppers anywhere in Tokyo. I visited before and remember seeing them but now ZERO? What happened. I asked discreetly and was met with a wall of silence. I need my poppers 'cus i am away from home for a while and wanna play, so any ideas where to look, or have the Japanese stopped selling.

I suspect they are prohibited now in Japan, just the same as in Canada. Maybe Australia will follow suit. So now that is Norway, Canada, Japan...anywhere else? I watched a documentary about Tokyo not long ago, given some of the things that go on there, it is surprising that something as relatively innocent as poppers is a big deal. It seems that poppers in Singapore are not a problem, and Singapore is supposed to be strict!

Japanese only recognize poppers as RUSH... nothing else. This means it is pretty easy to stop them (and the Japan has done that) There was a scandal involving an air steward. Poppers in Asia used to be easy to find but now it all changed. Easy to find in KL & Singapore though.
wall of silence - sure, do not talk about poppers or you will get the silent treatment.

I found out for you:
Isobutyl Nitrite is outlawed by a thing called ASEAN COSMETIC DIRECTIVE and so is "amyl nitrites" No sign of our old buddy isopropyl though.
"The ASEAN Economic Ministers signed the Agreement on the ASEAN Harmonized Cosmetic Regulatory Scheme at the 35th ASEAN Economic Ministers Meeting in Cambodia in September 2003"
Hearsay: Chinese poppers are labeled as Alkyl Nitrite and contain formula blends.
As for Japan: they were imported for over 20 years (Rush) by Rittsu in Shinjuku. In 2006 they got shut down. The Japanese have a term - dappo - so like a grey area and they do not like that. There is a lot of concern over drug abuse in Tokyo and elsewhere and poppers have wrongly (in my opinion and the UK lawmakers) been put in that basket.
My guess is this: poppers in ASEAN countries are mainly coming from China / are labeled as either isopropyl or general term "alkyl nitrite" - and are imported as being compliant with ADC as they are not excluded.
