Just to prove that I still love America!
This booth was run by people from Obama City in Fukui Prefecture. You may remember that this tiny city gained worldwide news attention during the election, after the mayor sent (then) candidate Obama a pair of chopsticks. Obama responded with a thank you letter of his own and the city went nuts! Word is that there are plans to erect a giant statue of Obama in front of the city hall. This is because his election was (to quote the city officials), "a great moment for the name Obama."
For this picture, the traditional "cheese" just simply wouldn't cut it. I had to scream "YES WE CAN!!!" on three.
