Japan Policeman Hat

警察帽子Japanese police hat

At a party over the New Year's holidays, the host - a somewhat tipsy older man - disappeared into another room for what seemed longer than a prostrate-induced trip to the toilet.

When he returned, he now had on his policeman's hat, which he last wore more than two decade ages while as a member of the Kyoto Prefectural Police and fighting crime and the local mob.

We all clapped and begged to be arrested on the spot. Instead of cuffing us, however, he instead encouraged all of us try it on. It was surprisingly stiff and heavy.

It has the signature chrysanthemum symbol and - dare we utter it - a visor of nearly North Korean proportions.
