The Japanese Family

I found this advertisement for a reading day that was held in December. The translation is "Have fun reading with family day".

Let's Read With Hitler

This raises a number of questions.

Since when did Japanese dads begin to look like Hitler or have Hitler mustaches? Where does one get such a cartoon image anyway? What are Japanese people learning in history class?

And besides these things who thought a Hitler lookalike was great for promoting a family reading day? But these wouldn't matter if the previous questions weren't considered first of all.

Oh Japan you never fail to confuse us all...
