Taro addition

Over the weekend, someone anonymously added a section of ghostly figures rising from the ruins of the Fukushima power plant to Taro Okamoto's huge mural "The Myth of Tomorrow", which was moved into Shibuya station concourse a few years ago. The addition has been swiftly removed – after all, you can't have someone adding the imagery of danger from a damaged nuclear power plant to a painting of the effects of nuclear weapons. Full picture from AFP here. (Above a detail from my photo, taken when the work was newly installed in Shibuya, and a detail from a mobile upload from Tokyo Times.)
