As I said in last weeks’s post about the contest for Tokyo’s governor (3Yen / 2016-07-20), Japanese election campaign posters are rather boring with a bunch of old farts who slap their picture with just their name, political party affiliation, and a lame slogan like these. →
You will be surprised to see in the middle of all these big posters is a yellow, palm-sized sticker for “NHK BUSTERS”—the anti-public TV broadcaster party.
Q: So, why is there even a need for “The Party to Protect the Public from NHK”? There’s no such thing a Party to Protect the Public from the BBC or PBS, is there?
A: NHK bill collectors are door-to-door visits extortionists* who unfairly collect (30 to 50% people don’t pay) exorbitant fees for increasingly biased political propaganda since the political appointment of Katsuto Momii, the loonier-than-Trump new Director-General of NHK.
Get the magic anti-NHK seal to stop the door-to-door visits of NHK bill collectors—The NHK Busters seal is now shipping from The Party to Protect the Public from NHK. http://nhkkara.jp

Usually, Japanese election campaign posters such as those for upcoming Tokyo gubernatorial contest are very boring Like these. ↓
Occasionally, you can see a weirdo like this
Vote for GOT OTER UKI poster.
Actually, GOT OTER UKI is just a strange romanization of Goto Teruki’s name on his “creative” 2013 campaign poster. (3yen.com | 2015-04-21)
His poster for this year’s Tokyo gubernatorial race is much more serious.↓
Goto Teruki’s 2015 campaign poster was even more right-wing crazy and nude…
(3yen.com | 2015-04-21)
The really crazy thing is that I support many of the ideas of his campaign platform (Google Translate)…
- Abort the 2020 Tokyo Olympics or make it ultra-low cost endeavor.
- Cancel the Tsukiji Fish Market relocation, and review.
- Stop the duplication and waste of Tokyo having two municipal subway systems, the Toei Subway and the Tokyo Metro, which double charge when crossing the two systems.
- Introduce a vehicle exhaust tax to spread the use of eco-cars.
- Rebuild Edo Castle the restore the castle tower.
- Legalize cannabis and revive the hemp industry.
Tomorrow is “Ocean Day,” a Japanese national holiday (3Yen / 2015-07-20). To get you in a holiday mood, here are a few reverent thoughts of Japan’s seaside holy Concrete Tetrapods would be apropos.
A reader’s email commenting about terapods:
>I think there are called dolosse.
Wow. You learn something every day.
South Africa claims concrete tetrapods were invented in 1963 for use in Cape Town, and that the Afrikaans word for tetrapod is dolosse.
However according to The Japan Times, in 1950, the Laboratoire Dauphinois d’Hydraulique in Grenoble, France first made them for erosion control.
Looking around at the history of of concrete, basically, nobody invented them–they spontaneously appeared from outer space in the early 1950s around the same time as the UFO sightings, ha, ha.
To quote Alex Kerr author of “Dogs and Demons: Tales from the Dark Side of Japan” (Hill and Wang, 2001):
These projects are mostly unnecessary or worse than unnecessary. It turns out that wave action on tetrapods wears the sand away faster and causes greater erosion than would be the case if the beaches had been left alone.
Surfers and naturalists (and anybody sane) hate the tetrapods because over time they erode away all sand on beaches and destroy the beach habitat creating a concrete dead zone, arrrg.
