Ticket Gate Dancing Antics

Do you notice what do the ticket gates at your nearest train stations do when the train stations are closed for the night??

Well, a few of those were caught red-handed by the public and were put on one of the greatest show in Japan; Kasou Taishou..

A great performance indeed by the ticket gates, even getting a full score of 25 points from the judges.. ^^

To those who don't know what kind of show Kasou Taishou is,

It is a semi-annual show on NTV in which various amateur groups (or solo artists) perform short skits, which are rated by a panel of judges.

It is famous for one of its best skit ever shown, even online; the Matrix Ping Pong..

Ah the good old days..

So if you happened to pass by any closed train stations, make sure to catch their performance.. ^^

    The best Japanese show I've watched (I don't really watch TV) on local stations has to be Takeshi's Castle from way back.
