It looks like the guy on the pictures I showed you the other day is pretty popular and well known in the Shinjuku area. I had no idea but Roy who has been living in Japan for ages knew about this guy who’s nickname is Tiger Mask.
Tiger Mask has been wandering around Shinjuku always wearing a tiger mask since more than 20 years ago. Maybe he loved the manga Tiger Mask. His accessories and clothing changes a little bit depending on the occasion but he always wears the same tiger mask. In fact Roy says that once Tiger Mask sit in the same row as him in the cinema and he watched the whole movie without taking the mask off! His obsession with the mask is pretty amazing.
Here there are some Tiger Mask pictures made by Roy and some others that I found in various Japanese blogs using Google images. I noticed that in the Japanese blogs many people is proud when they take a picture of Tiger Mask. If you go to Shinjuku and you bump into Tiger Mask, take a picture of him, upload it to your blog and share it in the comments of this post 🙂
This is the only picture of him without the mask covering his face that I was able to find.
