Miscellaneous Photos

I have a handful of photos taken here and there around Tokyo over the past several months. I took each one with the intention of blogging about it, but none of them alone really seemed worthy of its own post. Now, posted together for your convenience, here they are.

Exhibit A. In my neighborhood there's a building which is apparently host to a partnership of attorneys, one of whom is a porn star.

Moving on, observe Swastika Man. He tells us, in this sign, not to run up or down the escalators in the train station. Swastika Man hopes that this sign will serve as the Final Solution to the problem of escalator-related injuries.

Ladies, did you know that you can literally roll the cellulite right out of your arms and legs? And if this little plastic roller can help, imagine what a steam roller could do!

Sorry, Burger King, but I'm a little skeptical of the claim you make in this next photo. I haven't "freaked out" after eating something in a long time...not since university.

Next: WE WATCH YOU.

This is a picture on a sign in a residential area warning drivers to watch out for kids playing near the road. Motorists should exercise particular caution if the kids look anything like this kid.

I saved the best one for last. This is in the front window of a motorcycle shop on Kannana Street between Shin-Daita and Daitabashi stations.

I can't believe that last one. What could their intention possibly be?
Crazy Japs...

Their intentions were probably edginess and getting people's attention. Same as your intentions were when you decided to use the word "Japs," I'm assuming.

No, no, no. When I say "Japs" I'm just parodying... someone. I was really into the character at that moment. That's all.

Hmmm, I am Russian exchange student live now in Japan. Very strange sign a lot, sometimes confusing sometimes funny. It seem to be that Bob Owen is small brain, perhaps dropped as baby?
