Pachinko is popular throughout Japan and while some of the parlors have ultra-modern architecture and look more like Las Vegas casinos, some still are the old variety that employ more “traditional” styles.

Here is a street performer hired by the Pachinko Hall in Shibuya’s Center-gai to advertise their store. The sign says “Today, Famous person in store, only 4 times a year event”, and beneath that “Super BB Day – Center-gai, in front of McDonalds”.

This is not the typical face of Japan, but it is not exactly out of the ordinary either.

    I took some pictures with these street performers last summer, but didn’t have any idea what they where promoting… :-))

    Funny that we both got variations of the same shot! But she was hard to miss, wasn’t she? đŸ™‚

      She was hard to miss! I looked back through my photos to see if you were hiding in the corner and had been cropped out, but unless you were dressed in a kimono holding a red kasa, I don’t think I got you in the shot.
