Need to spray your crops? These guys have a DIORAMA!! WITH A #DRONE!! #tokyo
Ha, ha, I misread your “DIORAMA WITH A DRONE” for that crop-sprayer as a ‘DARUMA WITH A DRONE.’ wikipedia.org/wiki/Daruma_doll
Damn, not having a Daruma Drone (達磨ドローン) was a real lost opportunity in the crop-sprayer’s design aesthetic.

For several years I lived across the street from Tokyo’s ‘secret’ garden, Rikugien.
Basically, it was my home away from home as I visited it every day.
Rikugien Garden (六義園) is arguably central Tokyo’s best–It’s constantly used by the Foreign Ministry of Japan to give foreign VIPs a taste of traditional landscaping aesthetics. And for extra fun, Rikugien Garden has several small teahouses can be privately reserved quite reasonably.
Important reminder that, being dead, Paul Newman does not personally approve the graphic design choices for his salad dressing bottles. @jesticide January 17, 2018
Actually, Ninja Newman really does approve the graphic design choices for his salad dressing bottles.
In case you were wondering what the big deal is, Newman’s “ninja” outfit and hachimaki/headband have Chinese dragons embroidered and his back-worn, dual katana/swords are all sorts of tacky. Basically, the label is an embarrassment at best and to many (but not me) cultural misappropriation.

Taken in 1949, the photo below shows a lively Yokohama street targeting US servicemen with an Atomic Bomb Variety Show and a Japan Surender [sic] Bar. This exhibits the signs of the start of an economic boom after the BIG BOOM in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.
