Police Stop Japanese Superhero On The Streets Of Tokyo

Police Stop Japanese Superhero on the Streets of Tokyo

Can't a person just walk around the city dressed as Ultraseven without being questioned by the cops? Is that too much to ask? Guess so!

Since mid-2013, a person dressed as late-1960s superhero Ultraseven has been spotted around Tokyo. The Ultraseven has been seen numerous times at train stations, carrying a briefcase, as if commuting. Sometimes, the superhero is shopping.

In the past few years, the Japanese police have been known to stop folks in costume who wander the streets. I assume the police think they're "suspicious," especially if the cosplayer is completely encased in the outfit and carrying around a black bag.

Note the photos below are not from the same day, dating from last year to last night during which the iconic superhero was questioned by the Tokyo police.

Kidding! The above photo is from the Ultraseven series. The cosplayer seems to have only been questioned by the police.

    The last photo, the hero taking public transport to work.

    One of those, "Do before I die things" is to try that in a power ranger outfit, just for the hell of it.
