He kicks off his geta and it comes back as a weather symbol...

Can anyone tell me who he is and even better get a picture of him for me...

No idea who he is but apparently my JTE told me that it's an old Japanese tradition. You kick your footwear off high into the sky if it lands face up it will be good weather, if it lands face down it will be bad weather

Yes, the teachers were telling me that some people believe that if your geta lands face up it will be sunny, face down it will be rainy and on the side snowy. Then they started laughing joking about it landing on your head... I didn't quite get what weather that would indicate??!!

I need a pic though!

Anyone know the guy's name?

It might not be Kansai TV! It could be channel 10... but maybe still just in the kansai region! Does nobody know him?!!!!
