I Met Dr. NakaMats in Shibuya (Pics!)


It’s election time in Tokyo again, and poster boards like this one are all over the city. The whole world is talking about the strange lineup of candidates, and the candidates themselves are showing up in their big campaign vans all over the city, doing whatever it takes to get your attention.

Once again, alleged floppy disk inventor Dr. NakaMats is running for office, and even though he has never been chosen to date, he continues to be optimistic and a favorite among pop culturists like me. So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw him and his campaign van in the middle of Shibuya’s Scramble Crossing last week:


So I ran up and introduced myself and we took a picture together and now we’re best friends!

  1. Not to ruin your happy fun moment but he makes a face like he is having his mother-in-law in his arm and taking a picture with her instead of a nice young woman.
    What did you say to him!!?

  2. I have to admit, I’m a sucker for anyone in a p1mp suit. Go NakaMats!
    Give me a shout while you’re in Tokyo 😉
