It used to be a public space, which is often also damaged telephone. In addition, it was considered by some Shoutbox and it was there for it, that if you wanted to definitely something to break, a phone booth was a suitable target.

Not exactly pocket-size. When was this taken? You'd think with Japanese embrace of electronic gadgets, the phone booth would be fairly obsolete.

4 Feb 2016 11:43pm

@Bob: April, 2015. It was here to add a bit of character to the neighborhood.
