With Tokyo’s rice crops almost ready for harvest, it’s obviously imperative that the farmers protect their prize product. A process that, at least for some workers way out in the western corner of the capital, means once again wheeling out this season’s specially attired sentinels.
A varied selection of scarecrows that as well as boasting blonde bombshells,
and manga-inspired monsters,
includes blokes bothered about biscuits,
along with Santa somewhat surprisingly doing a bit during his down time.
Plus there’s the odd deranged doll design,
and, in a kind nod to the otaku teeming cafes of akihabara, there’s at least a meagre amount of moe, with a maid.
Which for one or two at least, appears to be worth a wee wave.
Or even a wild one.
