Graffiti in Tokyo?

Truly, Tokyo is the kind of place where you would never expect to see graffiti, especially in my neighborhood. Graffiti just doesn’t fit with the Japanese culture.  So I was really astonished to see this.  This building used to be part of the French Embassy.  They have just completed a new building and this one has a sign (in English, surprisingly) that says it is going to be converted into condos.  This is really quite cool.

    Is graffiti defined as graffiti if it’s cool?

    The man crouched down looks like the work of a really famous graffiti artist named Banksy. You can google him.

    I looked at the graffiti photograph and it looks like it might be signed. I’m going back tomorrow to check.
