i’m no groper [but i feel pretty stupid carrying this plastic ring]

commuter_strap.jpg

yet another example of japanese genius. ‘chikan’ – groping on crowded subways – is a common thing in japan and the last thing you want to be accused of during the peakhour ride home.

 look carefully to see that the subway handles pictured are not actually joined to anything. they are simply there to hold onto, reducing your chances of any chikan finger pointing.

love it.
