ah, japan...you always amuse me

51 characters is a site with the purpose of giving kids/out-of-touch adults a glimpse into japanese culture & the stereotypical people in a japanese city. it's a pretty amazing website.

that being said, one of the categories is "characters"...and it's here that i found amazing gems like this (now, REMEMBER, this site is meant to be educational. wicked.)

meet chican.he likes to touch young women in the crowded subway of tokyo - mainly in the rush hour, when it is so crowded that nobody realizes what he is doing. he always carries his camera to take some voyeuristic pictures. because of guys like him some of the japanese railway systems have women only cars, which are marked with a big pink sticker.

no, i'm not making this up.
