Cha cha

chacha2.jpgSpotted in Kanda: nostalgic advertising. The coffee shop doesn't seem to be there anymore but the sign lives on.

I think it's from the early 60s, judging from the building its painted on, the typeface, drawing style, and the name--cha cha hit its peak as a dance fad in the late 50s. And the name's a pun. Cha means 'tea' in Japanese. But with the dog pictured, I wonder if this Cha Cha was the owner's pet?

Just below the sign is a koban, a neighborhood police station, complete with policeman on display with his patrol bike:

hi... ah... this is, um, kind of funny, do you remember the pepys project? you reviewed my weblog. forever ago. i'm beginning to suspect that i might've done this already... written to say "thank you" for all of the nice things you said. but that's okay, right? i mean... gratitude is gratitude, i think. but... err, yeah, thanks. it meant a lot to me, it really did. warm fuzzy feelings, you know? rock on.

Hi... Years ago their was a coffee shop called 'Boring' in Shinsaibashi, Osaka City. I kid you not. Boring Coffee Shop. I snagged a bunch of matchbooks from the place and gave them away to friends on one of my trips home. Cheers,
