25% of my posts begin with “One of my favorite things about Japan is…” and/or are about posters, and this one is no exception. This time around, it is these free movie flyers that the theaters give out here. They are printed on high quality paper and almost always feature cool alternate artwork, making for great mini posters or gifts to people back in America. The ones I got for Control might be the raddest to date, but these are nice too:

Best Web-Slinging Access in Metropolitan Tokyo

That’s right all you true believers, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has sold out traded in his Manhattan apartment for richer digs here in Tokyo!

These ads have been in the subways here for a while now. They are advertising Shibaura Island Bloom Tower, a new luxury high rise in Minato-ku. It’s message is simple: “Spider-Man Leases at Bloom Tower”. I am not really sure how effective the campaign is, but it’s kind of cool to see Spidey posted everywhere.

The pic was taken from a moving train, hence the poor quality and blinding glare. Thanks for taking it for me, Yumi!
