An interesting juxtaposition


It's a little tough to see in this picture, but the green billboard in the foreground gives directions to Seitoku High School, which translates to "Holy Morality." I'm pretty sure it's actually a Christian-afilliated school.

In the background is a pachinko parlour, which just happens to be part of a multi-billion-yen per year gambling industry with alleged ties to the Yakuza and the Stalinist regime in North Korea.

I leave you to see the irony in this picture.
