Christmas in July?


A poster for Tokyo Metro shows Santa Claus, dressed in a yukata, asking where the fireworks are. The poster says Tokyo Metro's mission is to attend everyone from around the world.

I like it!

I actually saw some yukatas for sale today at the mall. I don't have one personally, but I'd like how purchase one for the upcoming fireworks. However, the designs are only those traditional looking ones with flowers and stuff. It'd be nice if they have some more modern design looking ones such as Harajuku and Shibuya styles, for example, the designs on Tokidoki bags.

This poster will get more publicity with the slight English twist.

They can attend me. I like firework displays.

They used "attend" as a transitive verb, meaning "to take part," while their meaning is clearly the intransitive "attend to," meaning serve.

Cute poster, but don't these people have native-language proofreaders?
