Default Japan Tour: Sushi shop man yells at Tokyo commuters


Japan has a strong macho tradition that involves lots of shouting, back slapping, and posturing. It was on unique display the other morning at my local railway station, Asakusabashi, in Tokyo, on the JR Sobu line. At the bottom of the stairs onto the street, a middle aged employee (perhaps the owner) of a local sushi shop was accosting commuters with guttural ecries of encouragement, clenched "go-for-it" fists, and the occasional back slap. Check out the YouTube video, taken on my iPhone.
