  • Street View Black Van

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 August 19日 Tuesday

    Here’s one of those infamous far right, noise polluting nationalist black vans caught in action on the Japanese Google Street View (which had captured many odd private moments, like couples entering love hotels, middle-aged man pissing on the street, a man exiting a blow job joint, site of recent car accident, all of which have been deleted by request from some people. With Japanese streets often being very narrow, the Street View service in Japan seems more invasive of privacy than in the US.)

      These buggers drive near my house all the time. Last week the riot police responded and were everywhere on the look out for these guys after a whole boat load of them decided to pollute the air with their noise. I don’t mind that they’re expressing their views, that should be their right; but do they have to be so freaking loud and annoying, especially in residential areas! Even if these guys were campaigning for better treatment of foreigners, or lower prices on pizza, or something else important I could agree with, I’d still hate them and want them to go away. Do they think they will convert anyone by annoying them?

    2. Well, we don’t see any movements to create noise pollution laws, so I guess them (and the election campaign vans) are collateral damage for living in popular neighbourhoods… until someone in the legislature decides to do something about noise pollution. Lucky I only get the occasional election van.
