    It’s down by the bleach.

  2. Droll not Troll | 4:09 am |

    Please honkey when entering,

  3. Algernon | 4:14 am |

    A place of intolerance

  4. Algernon | 4:15 am |

    Not for coloreds

  5. Marum | 4:20 am |

    Just like Chinatown.

    But the food is lousy.

  6. Marum | 4:22 am |

    Even the paint on the crossings is white too.

  7. Droll not Troll | 4:25 am |

    It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the colour again.

  8. Droll not Troll | 4:45 am |

    Anywhere near Ethni City?

  9. Marum | 5:49 am |

    So if the crossings are white, do the other colours have to jaywalk.?

  10. Chris | 8:04 am |

    You can only throw away white trash.

  11. Marum | 8:04 am |

    Officer: Do you have a reason for jaywalking sir?

    Me: My maternal grandfather’s people have been here for at least 50,000 years officer. During that time they walked unimpeded all over this land. Therefore I do not believe that laws that have been brought from elsewhere into this country less that 100 years ago, have any jurisdiction over anyone who identifies as full, or part Aborigine.

    Officer: Do you think I am some kind of fool?

    At that point I was going to mention that there are so many kinds, but I thought it might be prudent, to keep that observation to myself.

  12. Marum | 8:09 am |

    @Chris 0804. But for every piece of white-trash, there has to be an equivalent amount of coloured-trash.

    The laws of Physics demand it.

    Sort of like; Matter and Anti-matter.

    Man you better stay outta that ‘hood. They’ll try to sell you insurance and a retirement plan.

  14. Eggrish | 2:05 pm |

    The white square is surrounded by yellow.

    I think Engrish sign is trying to tell us something!

  15. Peter Chan | 2:31 pm |

    Creepy. The house is blue.

  16. Droll not Troll | 6:54 pm |

    @Eggrish | 2:05 pm: And that red arrow – Russian collusion?

  17. Droll not Troll | 6:56 pm |

    You’ve seen rap dancing. In White Town they have crap dancing.

  18. Droll not Troll | 7:02 pm |

    @Marum | 5:49 am: I never thought about this before, but every pedestrian crossing also has dark stripes. 😉

  19. Filboid | 1:35 am |

    Bring on the blancmange!

    Hmmm….gonna have to ask a Japanese friend about this one.

    It’s for some sort of distribution center or dispensary.

    The name of the company at the bottom of the sign indicates it has something to do with construction or housing…I think.

    Quite cryptic, this sign. This would make for a nice, challenging example on an advanced Japanese language test to see just how familiar one really is with the local culture.

  21. Long Tom | 2:33 pm |

    The alternate name for “Roppongi”, presumably, where honorable foreigners are welcome to visit.
