Strange Banner Advertising

January 21st, 2007 at 07:24 pm

One thing that you see in Japan as you go down streets is a lot of banner advertising. Many stores, gas stations, car dealers, etc fly banners in front of their storefront to attract customers. On my walk this morning, I found these banners advertising something that caught me a bit off guard: grave site plots.

It just seems kind of tacky to be flying these signs over the graves of people, but maybe it's just me...

    Yeah. That is a bit tacky. I mean, at least post formal advertisement in local print media. Not disturbing the ambiance with flashy color. For a country whose culture revolves around respect that seems to undermine it all.
