Forgive me commenters for I have sinned! I was reading Japan Today and came across this portrait of western-looking people at the no-nukes demo outside the Kantei. The first person up was portrayed thusly:
Peter, the first visible Westerner to arrive at the protest, has lived in Japan since 1982. He works as a salaryman. He believes the severity of the earthquake has been exaggerated (from roughly 7 to 9 on the Richter Scale) to soft-pedal the avoidability of the Fukushima disaster. He would like to start an English-language talk group to discuss this and other revelations from alternative news sources; he has discovered that Japanese environmentalists are often preoccupied with beer and beef.
But "beer and beef"?
[Peter] was concerned that he would be photographed by police and deported. “I dressed as much like a tourist as I could.” (Slacks, blue dress shirt, ball cap). He wore large, dark sunglasses over his corrective lenses. He brought a surgical mask to cover his thick, white beard.
The best way for someone of (presumably) foreign build to appear inconspicuous is, I am sure, to wear sunglasses at dusk and what all tourists are wearing this season, a mask. Anyway, if he has a new RFID-ready Zairyu Card, I’m sure he can look forward to a fun time next time he goes through Narita.
The remaining people were also quite, err, odd, including one bemoaning the lack of violence, so for the first (and last, I hope) time I recommend you read a Japan Today article.
