Hey! It's Thursday. Which means it is almost Friday. This has been a long week. Maybe it's been good. Maybe it's been bad. Let's unwind with some silly photos.
It's been a while since we've taken a look at goofy photos you can find online in Japan.
All these images were taken from funny photo round-ups on Naver (here, here, and here). Some of the images you might have seen before. Some not. Do be aware that not all these photos were taken in Japan and that people in Japan also find the images funny, baffling, and odd. You're not alone! Much of this is atypical stuff.
But hopefully, they will make you giggle -- or, at the very least, crack a smile.
