I was intrigued by all the graffiti which you rarely see in Japan. I decided it was part of the decoration of this building. No others were so adorned.

It's interesting, but I don't hope such graffiti in my neighborhood.

Yes, the graffiti certainly adds a gritty counterculture feel.

Good name for the place and certainly looks like the graffiti is part of their overall popular culture image. Great find and excellent shot.

I like this street shot of this unusual graffiti. I'd think the absence of bad graffiti would be welcome compared to some of the things we see here.

Yes it has that element of design - intentional I think!

Too cool :-) I was thinking it was a small colony set up by Taggers who had lost their seats on the return trip home and forced to stay here (in Japan)....This really Is rare :-)

I am not certain that the "decoration" really attracts the customer but the photographer certainly ! :)
