The blue, bustier-style garment by Triumph aims to promote tourism and has a holder on the stomach for images of major tourist spots such as Mt. Fuji.

“A new international airport terminal has just opened in Tokyo, and the number of foreign tourists visiting Japan has been increasing recently,” said Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda.
“We came up with this bra in the hopes of further boosting tourism, and the economy, in Japan.”
The bra, whose Wednesday launch came just before 20 world leaders fly into Japan for this weekend’s APEC meeting, is the latest concept design for Triumph. It is not for sale.
Previous efforts have included a solar-powered bra and a rice-growing bra, which came complete with two plant pots, soil and seedlings.

Is it someone who is not open-minded? Prejudiced? Racist?

What Is American Idiot Like?
An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day’s groundbreaking album to execute the story line. The stage is festooned by a collage of art and newspaper clippings as well as over a dozen embedded …
American Idiot follows the exhilarating journey of a new generation of young Americans as they struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world, borne along by Green Day’s electrifying score. This high-octane show includes every song from the acclaimed album American Idiot, as well as several songs from the band’s Grammy-winning release, 21st Century Breakdown.
