Listen. After seeing what’s going on with Japan’s postal service, I’m going to need the USPS to step its game way up.
Although old mailboxes in Japan look kind of like the guy above sans googly eyes, the people charged with designing post boxes in contemporary Japan take their jobs seriously.
And by seriously, I mean not seriously at all. If you walk the streets of Tokyo long enough, you’re bound to run into something that looks more like a giant children’s toy than a mailbox, and it’s bound to be the best experience of your miserable life.
They might look a little odd at first, but when you take a second to sit with the cuteness of Japan’s postal scene, you’ll realize just how much ours is lacking.
I will give the person who brings me that duck one approximately six nickels, which is just about all I have to spare.
I don’t know about you, but the next time I see a boring blue box on the sidewalk, I’m going to weep. Nah, I’m just kidding. (No I’m not.) But seriously, Japan. Stay cute!
