|The Glico Man on Dotonbori Bridge, Osaka, Japan|
It's kind of weird that in a place with as many gorgeous traditions as Japan, one of the most famous sights in Osaka is all about advertising. Kind of weird, except that Japan is all about contrasts and of course being a super-technology land, you can't be surprised that they flaunt that along with their temples and sushi.
This is the Dotonbori Bridge in the middle of Osaka, and it's a place you have to head to at night to see all this neon lit-up. The Glico man (that athlete guy) is the most famous part, and I know he still exists, though perhaps some of the other stuff has changed in the years since this picture was taken. If I had a magical flying machine tonight, I'd head there, grab some local food (probably okonomiyaki) and an updated snap of the neon, and be home before you could say "Arigatou".
