Jun 05 2020 17 CommentsTokyo’s least practical parking space? Sometimes, some things simply don’t make any sense whatsoever.
Mark Williams says
Did they put the pole there after the van parked there? It reminds me of when a road crew in Detroit once painted street lines over a dead beaver.
That’s the big question. If it was after parking, I’d loved to have seen the owner’s face when they returned.
The sound of one van parking.
And the sound of one owner cursing.
unless they have a fork lift! :O)
That could explain the cone. Perhaps placed there to ensure the fork lift can get in and out. But of course that throws up a whole host of other questions…
Such an awesome find! I so wanna see it being parked! 🙂
Video of the owner parking their van.
Haha, that looks about right!
Ha I would NOT be able to park there! 😮
You and me both!
It is to ensure lots of practice at parallel-parking? 😛
Practice makes perfect, and if you can park your car there, you can park it anywhere!
Brilliant. An excellent Friday afternoon photograph.
From the H28.11 sticker, my guess is that the pole has been there since november 2016 ( or maybe was last inspected) anyway, the car does not look to have been there that long, so it must be elite parking skills.
My first thought was the car had simply been there ages. Something that’s not uncommon in Tokyo. But no flat tires or general signs of non-movement suggest that yes, the owner really is a parking master.
Thank you Lee. Humor is the best way to escape the craziness of our world at present.
You are very welcome. This cheered me up no end too. Exactly what was needed.
