I haven't seen this in Hamamatsu yet, but according to a story on MSNBC.com, fashions made by young prisoners in Hokkaido are becoming popular in Japan. As part of their rehabilitation program, the inmates at Hakodate Juvenile Prison make totebags and aprons printed with the Japanese character for "jail" and the ultra-cool because it's an English word "PRISON," and they're catching on. Especially with the staff at one Shinjuku bar.
The main thing I came away with after reading that article is... there is no way the woman in that photo is 52 years old. What magic fountain has she been drinking from? What's next- wearing prison fashions made by juvenile offenders keeps you perpetually youthful?
