Japan is apparently in a depression notwithstanding famous economists or government say anything. There are three major businesses which are prospering in this season; pachinko the traditional Asian gamble game using small metal balls, loan shark and cell phone business. These three have a characteristic that acts badly on our daily life with their bad-designed advertisements including the loud signboards, illuminations and TV commercials. Bad thing is that when the economy goes down, companies in these businesses get relatively strong and their ugliness becomes more conspicuous. TV commercial seems to be occupied by them. Frequent TV watchers will be brain-washed by those terrible CFs and their sense of beauty must be collapsed. Someone may say that the cell phone companies are not so bad, but I think they are the worst in terms of the city view. This picture depicts an antenna tower of a cellphone company. Who thinks it's not ugly? It looks worse than a strange statue of a cult. I'm sorry the city views in Japan have been and are going to be worse and worse.
