Voting in Japan

For the last week or so, city voting has been happening in Japan. At all hours of the day, trucks with huge loudspeakers have been driving slowly through the streets, asking for support from citizens for various candidates. So annoying.
But the best part about it is the hilarious campaign photos. In the States, candidates for elections have serious photos with penetrating, noble looks on their faces. But not in Japan. Japanese candidates sometimes have serious photos, but many times, are in various "fight" poses or with colorful backgrounds.

This is my favorite one. "For everyone's smile: Takeshi Sugiyama"
