    Nice to take pride in one’s surroundings. On another note I’d like to see her getting into those jeans!

      Clearly a small price to pay in the name of fashion. In a similar vein, I suspect the boy may well have the phone surgically attached to his hand for a two year period.

    Not to sound naive, but still there is nothing more amazing than seeing graffiti in Nippon. Before I visited there myself, I was repeatedly told of the national and personal pride the natives have in their home. It just seems so contrary to the Nihonjin psyche to deface their surroundings in such a manner.

    Well times change don’t they ?

      The do indeed. In Shibuya and parts of Harajuku there is an awful lot. A huge change from what it used to be like. It’s quickly spreading to a lot of other areas too. Some of it is genuinely artistic, but a good amount is anything but…

    I remember going there in the 80’s and being taken aback by the lack of graffiti. But now graffiti culture seems to have become ubiquitous.

      Yeah, pretty much. Definitely not everywhere, at least not yet, but there’s so much more than there used to be.
