While wandering around Kyoto one recent evening, I found two steel shutters that caught my eye. On the left is the universally recognized Coke bottle, on the right an ad for a local tea drink.
In my hometown, Philadelphia, both would be covered in graffiti. And filthy. And multi-padlocked.
These shutters were clean, in every sense of the word. The rendering of the Coke bottle, in particular, was sharp and eye-catching.
Moreover, there did not appear to be any lock holding the shutters fast.
