#9: Volunteer Buddha — January 9, 2013
To better prepare the city in the event of a major disaster, the Tokyo Fire Department is seeking volunteer firefighters. Pictured here is a TFD recruitment poster inviting potential volunteers to contact the department for more information. This particular poster was tacked to a bulletin board outside a community center.
We couldn't resist taking a photograph of the Manga University Tokyo Daibutsu resting in the outstretched hand of the poster's manga-style firefighter.
No word yet on whether his application to volunteer has been accepted.
