According to Tokyo Times, this broom shop hasn't sold anything since 1972.
1972!!!! I was 11 at the time!!!!!
Quoth the Tokyo Times...
A store that, perhaps due to a niche that’s not exactly necessary nowadays, unfortunately hasn’t had the pleasure of a patron since 1972 — Saturday, September 2nd, to be precise. And even then the customer in question was after a hand brush that unfortunately they didn’t have.
No clients? No business since that time? What, are they running this as a hobby? Or is it something more sinister? A Yakuza money laundering scheme perhaps?
If you look at the picture, their stock of brooms looks newer that 36 years!
What do you think?
