Ebizo, disgraced kabuki star, is back selling posh men’s wear in Yurakucho

Well, hello, Ebizu! I thought the kabuki star was disgraced, and then I find him giving me this come-hither look outside the new(ish) palce of posh menswear, Hankyu Men in Yurakucho. Decent coffee downstairs at the Monocle Cafe brought me there twice in one week.

Can someone explain to me how celebrity rehabilitation works in Japan? Was he forgiven because alcohol was involved? Or has he seduced a defenseless nation into taking him back?

  1. Isn’t it because no one can REALLY resist a bad boy? Not even Japan.

    In kabuchi make up he sort of looks like Antony in Antony & the Johnsons.
