New Japanese SuperHero (Video)
It would seem Tokyo now has its own super hero -- decked out in a green Power Rangers outfit with silver trim and matching mask. It's really just Tadahiro Kanemasu -- a guy with no real super powers other than a strong desire to help others. He waits by the stairs of a Tokyo subway station, lending his strength to the elderly, passengers lugging heavy packages and mothers with baby strollers. He said, "Japanese people find it hard to accept help, they feel obligated to the other person, so the mask really helps me out." The 27-year-old has spent three months being a Good Samaritan at the station on Tokyo's west side. Like many in the city, it has no elevators or escalators and a long flight of dimly lit stairs. Since Kanemasu can set aside only a couple of hours each day for his good deeds, he hopes to recruit others in different colored suits. Already he has inquiries about pink and red.
