this is alter for victim of building fire in Shinjuku Kabukicho, it’s called Myojo 56 building fire”.
The fire, the fifth-deadliest in post-war Japanese history, claimed 44 lives and burned for five hours before being extinguished.
So memorial service alter is set every year in front of this building. and Lots of people visit there and pray for the souls of those who dead in this tragic building fire.
Message on the board, and a bunch of flowers, drink and expensive alcohol.
Some poeple pray for victims, Some people are moved to tears.
Maybe they are an acquaintance with victims or friends.
But i noticed that some people behave strangely.
certainly some people seem to pray in the same way as other people.
But something is different.So I keep watching them.
this guy who wear blue cap watch each prayer.
His behavior is appearently strange.
and lots of people leave there except this blue cap old man.
After that, he start move quickly.
He looks around for something very very carefully. and he stared offering bucket & alchole.
and he steal something from alter and put it into his pocket.
Yes, he is heatless thief who steal victim-offering on the alter.
and he look around carefully with very serious face.
what a bad man’s face!!!
this is very nomal style robbing.
and next time, he start to stare expensive alchole.
He stare alchole rabel very carefully.
I know he want to steal this expensive alchole too.
But you know his pocket is too small. He cannot put it into his pocket.
He want to steal it but he cannot.
and he smell it like frech wine sommelier.
after smelling, he look around again and drink it.
He cannot put this alchole in his pocket so he put it in his stomach !
I admit it’s good idea.
