Hey, hey looky here. Seems the latest issue of Japan Times Weekly (cover shown here) has been getting funky. Nice take on that iconic Obama poster. Wherever could they have got an idea like that from? Er, try here or here.
Oh, found that lost link to the site in German that kindly linked to Our Man - Shitamachi - well worth a read if you can handle putting the verb in the second position all the time. If not, just look at the pictures, they're good 'uns of everyday life in Japan.
