Zettai Dame

One weekend, Tenmonkan was the site of the "Zettai Dame" campaign, with a mascot and people handing out flyers, fans and tissues, all aimed at telling people to not use drugs. Not sure how a deflated world globe ties to drug use, but there's probably a logic behind it somewhere.

Part of the campaign.

The insert in the packet of tissues handed out along with the fans. "Golgo 13 says, 'Just say No to drugs'."

This actually isn't part of the zettai dame campaign, but it was in the same location. It's advertising for a new vegetable market that just opened up - Yumeria (which I think is supposed to be something like Dream-atorium).

Monster Watch

Ad banner in front of 7-11 for the "Watch Monster" game. Pokemon without the skilled artists.

Restaurants come and go all the time in Tenmonkan. This is the second one in this location within 6 months. The interesting thing about Segodon is that it's kind of built around Saigo, one of the local heroes in Kagoshima (Saigo is also known as "the last samurai"). In the local dialect, his name is pronounced "Sego".

I really dislike taking photos through windows. Anyway, this is supposed to be Saigo.

A bakery with a great poster.

And a really horrible location in the back of a parking garage.

Power Coffee, part 2

I'd mentioned Power coffee in a previous review (I didn't like it). Here's the ad display with Bruce Willis. The coffee tastes like Bruce looks.

Pocket Empire sandwich board

Pocket Empire is a tiny anime goods shop in Tenmonkan. They generally have good drawings on the board out front, although this side seems to have gotten smudged.

The other side is still ok, though.

Pudding Shop Chaplin

There's a place in the Caparvo building near Tenmonkan called Pudding Shop and Bar Chaplin. I might have to check this out when it's open some time.

I think the door handle is designed to look like a tray of chocolates.

I like the logo.
