A free-standing sidewalk pole for dancing seemed like the best idea of the century. This big girl certainly looks festive!
Strutting with a two meter pole at waist height is an invitation to dream. Are the children too innocent to understand? The white booties and oldie-time undies add something irreplaceable.
This video left me speechless. Via Tokyo Matt, who wrote, “Some Beijing hipsters were watching it when my friend walked in the room.”
Is this wooden object a stick or a pole? In any case, it is an essential element of Tokyo policing. I love seeing the local cop at the kabin standing guard with the wooden stick, or the more formal occasions in front of a government office.
The tool is at once simple and, most likely, ineffective against any real emergency. Yet its presence is somehow soothing to the police and the public.
