I was walking through Tenmonkan one Sunday when there were a lot of events going on, and some people near a shop selling designer glass frames were handing out black masks advertising "black express". It looks like you're supposed to punch out the little holes and attach string to the sides so you can wear it as a kind of Halloween mask. I asked one of my students what the advertising is for, and she said that there's a TV show on now about a coal train. So, I guess this is a promotion for a bullet train ride in Kyushu, that ties into the TV show.
