When I went the first time to Asakusa and saw the Asahi Beer headquarters, my imagination told me that the strange sculpture on top of the building could be a “drop of beer”, because it’s golden and it looks like a drop? But a friend told me that the french artist who created the sculpture designed it to be a “flame”. My guess was far from right.
After some time I realized that Japanese have a nickname for this building. They call it “the shit building” (うんこビル) because it looks like the shape how Japanese/mangakas usually draw shits.
What do you see, a shit? a beer drop? a flame? a tarako? a spermatozoid?
