Learn Japanese: Pink Chirashi

Indecent Fliers Box

That mischievous Little Shiva just posted this link to my facebook page, in which Tokyobling’s blog describes a special trash can (shown here) for “pink chirashi” or adult fliers.

If you are morally offended by the hand outs for adult shops and strip clubs, but too polite to say no to the smiling touts, feel free to use this trash can on your next visit to Tokyo.

Amazing.  Thanks Little Shiva and Tokyobling!

And speaking of the Japanese and their crazy ways, how awesome was Kunio Kato’s “Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto” reference while accepting the Oscar for best animated short?

    Heh, gotta love those Japanese. Yet another trash category, they must be up to 40 or 50 by now.

    Pretty sure that “chirashi” is the Nippon-ified English word “trash”. Say it a few times over and over to yourself. 😉

    Otherwise, say “gomi”!

    It’s the compound term we’re learning today: pink chirashi = dirty flyer

  3. dumpstertaoist Says:

    Yeah, I know. Just pointing out that “chirashi” is the english word trash. So it means “pink trash”, literally translated.
