← Our report on the mascot Brisky getting frisky at a Nippon Ham Fighters baseball game (3Yen / 2005-08-20) has been an all-time favorite with readers. That is to say, sekuhara/—the Japanese-engrish abbreviation for sexual harassment—is the national pastime in Japan like baseball.
Just recently I noticed that Brisky-kun has some real competition in the pervy department.

In the above photo the Japanese fan’s head has a Daruma figurine with both eyes filled in to denote achievement of a goal.
← Shown on the left is a Daruma with only one eye inked in is a “hopeful” Daruma to help achieve success by signifying their commitment to achieving their goal.
For example, sports teams before a big match or politicians before an election will buy such a Daruma doll and ink in one eye with a calligraphy brush. Then, if they win the game or election, they will ink in the other eye.
For more details refer to Wikipedia.org/wiki/Daruma.

Playing with balls—Japanese Prime Minister Abe wants m0Ar~!
The question is: Can more baseball save Japan — or at least Abenomics?
That is, with the dead-in-the-water state of the economic reforms of Abenomics (3Yen / 2013-12-24) and the increasingly desperate attempts to boost Japan’s moribund economy with “Wankernomics” (3Yen / 2014-03-22), will expansion teams for Japanese baseball really help?
