It's Friday! Time to relax. Time to unwind. Time to giggle.

Online in Japan, a collection of "awful" or "terrible" pics are amusing and delighting internet inhabitants.


Previously, Kotaku posted some interesting Twitter images from Japan. Daily life in Japan is rather pedestrian and normal, but those Twitter images were anything but. Ditto for these!

Some of the images were taken in person, while others were spotted on TV. Some are new, while others are internet favorites in Japan. Have a look:
