Slaps Motomachi & Sannomiya

Some eye-catching slaps from around the downtown area of Kōbe. Slaps, or stickers, are the most common form of graffiti in the area followed closely by tagging. A mixture of respect and strict anti-graffiti laws keep street art to a minimum in Kōbe, the common targets being areas surrounding train stations (not on trains or behind the ticket barriers), bar/entertainment zones within the city and some very rural areas with large walls such as barns and sheds. The sides of vending machines, behind street signs, and streetlight poles are the most common canvases.
