Girls With Mops. Only in Japan


Girls. Plaid pleated school girl skirts. Knee socks. Mops. Yes, that last one is correct. Only in Japan do you find these wonderfully odd combinations. Apparently, it's to promote a television drama called Life. All this courtesy of Flickr user antjeverena.

One of the ways that the Japanese school system instills discipline in their students is to have the students keep the classroom clean. This is especially important because through high school graduation -- Japanese students do not change classrooms: the teachers do. So each class (not the large "class of ..." that we think of in the U.S., but each room) elects leadership and is responsible for the upkeep of the room.

... and thus you end up with school girls (and boys, but they don't really sell anything) with mops.

FYI this show deals with bullying (among other things). Which explains the mop being used as a weapon, and the disarray of the scene.
