Painful Skyline

From Wikipedia: Itasha (痛車, literally "painful car") is a Japanese term for a fashion of individuals decorating the bodies of their cars with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games (especially bishōjo game or eroge). These characters are predominantly "cute" females. The decorations usually involve paint schemes and stickers.

It is what it is. I have no words. If you like it, good for you, I suppose.

Painful 180SX (Akihabara UDX)

From Wikipedia: Itasha (痛車, literally "painful car") is a Japanese term for a fashion of individuals decorating the bodies of their cars with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games (especially bishōjo game or eroge). These characters are predominantly "cute" females. The decorations usually involve paint schemes and stickers.

I daresay it doesn't look terrible on this 180SX. If only the character depicted was an adult woman, not a child, because you know the owner has had a long session with 'Mrs Palmer and her five daughters' while looking at pictures of that character.

Painful Swift (Akihabara UDX)

From Wikipedia: Itasha (痛車, literally "painful car") is a Japanese term for a fashion of individuals decorating the bodies of their cars with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games (especially bishōjo game or eroge). These characters are predominantly "cute" females. The decorations usually involve paint schemes and stickers.

While the thought of driving one of these things is rather painful. I must say. This is designed and wrapped well. I quite like that pearlescent green pattern.

The most wretched den of scum and villainy in tokyo.

And that's why I keep going back to Kabukicho. 


They are trying to Gentrify it.


But the grime is too thick, and the lure of flesh, too strong.


It's become safer but I don't think it could ever truly be a safe-space.


And in a city that's actively trying to kill of everywhere that is remotely fun. 


And replacing it with corporate friendly, entertainments for the boring, mainstream masses.  


It's the scummy corners like Kabukicho that will be the last refuge for proper fun, in central Tokyo.

I found  a cool old photo from last year that I forgot to post. Rural Japan is rural.

Tokyo, Tokyo and more Tokyo.



The reason why peeps love Tokyo completely evades me. It may possibly be a better city than any other city in any other country on Earth, but it is by far the single worst place in Japan. Do yourself a favor when you visit Japan. Have the balls to skip Tokyo. You'll see and experience much more real Japan for it.
