Okada's Stock

Seen from the window of a hairdressers' near Waseda University, a dummy figure of Takeshi Okada, Japan's coach at the World Cup. The message reads, "Thank you Oka-chan" (-chan is a nickname used in affection.) From reviled to tolerated to respected, this man's ascent in public opinion during this World Cup was as unexpected as the Japan team's success.
