The Azusa River Tepco Hall, near Matsumoto, Nagano.

Something tells me that Tepco will have to change it's logo. It's hard to imagine that the company will be able to stay around without a major image change. Even now that logo looks like a made up one for an evil company from a movie set in a Terminator-like dystopian future.

Taken through the window of the closed Asukakawa Tepco-kan, a science museum and Tepco PR spot that was closed indefinitely after the earthquake.

Hello! I found your blog via the Japan Blog List and I have a question for you.

As I am moving to Japan in the coming months I am making a list of places to go and things to do while in Japan. I would like to make a similar list for my blog featuring other Japan bloggers.

All I ask of you is to send a paragraph (or more if you'd like) explaining your favorite part of Japan and why, maybe include a picture of it if you'd like. Just send me an email at with your reply (or questions) and I'd love to feature you!

Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you!

Yeah, it does look like an evil logo.

I see Kaley is making her rounds. Same message on several other blogs.

Prior to the Fukushima NPP issue, I'm sure none of us really had an artistic opinion of Tepco's logo either way. I know I never saw it before the quake.
