routemasters live on!

If you’re British and you’ve been wondering what happened to all those Routemaster buses (the ones you could run after and jump on the back and buy your ticket from a bus conductor … yeeeeees I AM that old) … I found them! No, they have not all been miniaturized by advanced London Transport technology and sold in souvenir stores, they’ve been exported to Japan!

Revered and respected by Yamaguchi prefecture, there is one in its original bright red showing tourists around that good old British town of Shimonoseki; and here in Tokyo one is being used to advertise that good old British product, the Converse All Star.

This bus will take you for a free ride around Harajuku and Shibuya, and inside displays Converse products, plus items from Beams, Cibone and Spiral Records. Er, I think it does, anyway. I was too chicken to actually get on it. Was worried it would drop me off in Romford.
