Metal Animal Decorations

Posted in Stuff by tokyobling on November 11, 2011

You know in Europe they have the Garden Gnomes, ceramic or plastic gnomes that seem to be almost everywhere? Here in Japan, it seems we are getting a case of the metal dogs! Have you seen these shop decorations in and around Tokyo? I run into them all the time and earlier this year I started taking photos of them whenever I saw them. Here’s a couple of photos (from Hamadayama and Ikebukuro), but I have plenty more.

    I wander if, in Japan, they will ever start kidnapping those little dogs… I mean…. this could happen to any gnome here…!
