Kia Ora, in Stick News today, graffiti has been found scrawled on the pillar of a temple in Japan. We bring you this report.
Some Temples in Japan have signs that say “no graffiti” in several languages. But the signs alone are obviously not enough.
It was reported yesterday that graffiti has been found on pillar at Horyuji Temple in Nara.
It’s not all bad news though, one of the perpetrators was spreading a message of love. “I love everybody” was written in Japanese.
Positive messages in graffiti aren’t found only in the national treasures of Nara.
In Tokyo, near the Stick News headquarters, the work of conscientious graffiti artists is on display on a concrete wall, along the river. This artist even altered the work after discovering a spelling mistake.
And the government has announced there will be a 50% increase in the size of the signs at Horyuji Temple.
And they’re also providing funding for an education course titled: ways to profess your love other than writing it on a temple pillar.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 21st of April.
