No Smoking!

There was a fantastic anti-smoking campaign in Hokkaido, so I thought I'd share some of the adverts with you. Sorry some of them are a bit blurry, I was on a tube train at the time.

My personal favourite is the one about personal ashtrays - a uniquely Japanese invention. Littering is a massive no-no in Japan, but on the other hand, public litter bins are an incredibly rare sight. The solution? The personal ashtray - a handy pen-sized cigarette butt receptacle that you can seal up and take with you anywhere.

They had "personal ashtrays" around whilst we were travelling around all the pretty places last year. However in our case they were empty 35mm film pots. . . A great idea :-)
