The Office Hours Are Un-Japanese

日本人離れした勤務時間だなとよく言われます。

"People are always telling me I work really un-Japanese hours."

To emphasis the point of un-Japaneseness the girl in this ad on a Nagoya subway is wearing a blond wig and a false nose.


Gaijin nose

It's been a while since I've seen the false nose used in advertising...though buying a gaijin set of false nose and accessories is not a problem. They are lots of fun at parties and Halloween and available on Rakuten or order a set from us at GoodsFromJapan.com

To emphasise "nose" (hana) there is probably a play on words with hanareshita (離れした) and dana (だな) in the copy. Cool!
