#1 What Product is Being Scrapped from Japan's Convenience stores?

Hosting the Rugby World Cup later this year and the Summer Olympics in 2020 with an anticipated huge influx of tourists, 34,000 stores throughout Japan have announced they will take a certain item off their shelves. Is it -

1. Dried fugu fish sashimi (the type of fish with the toxic innards that kills several people a year)?
2. Dog meat from the fresh food cooler?
3. Green Tea M&M candies?
4. Pornography?

The answer is surely obvious as the first three don't exist - as far as I know. 7-Eleven and Lawson will take porno magazines off their shelves. Presently these are available usually mixed in with regular non-porno magazines on shelves near the front of the shops.

I imagine sales in this specialist publishing sector have dwindled due to availability of material on line.
