We have a town populated almost entirely by creepy life-size dolls in the States too, but we call it Beverly Hills.

Oh Japan, from your advertisements to your view of porn, you never seem to disappoint.

"Some may feel frightened because they look so real."

"Excuse me, ma'am, what do you think about all of these dolls about town?"
"..."
"Ma'am?  Hello?"
"..."
"Fark, another one. This is getting embarrassing."

Do they give a name for Chris Eccleston's counterpart, or does he just need to buy Rosetta Stone's Japanese course?

Did anyone else expect them to be "real dolls".

I mean what is a real doll, I've never heard of those.

Having watched my share of horror movies  I'm sure this won't go terribly wrong.

Iya Valley in Tokushima?
Alex Kerr (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Kerr_(Japanologist)) wrote about the place in his book Lost Japan. It's always been pretty remote. I can't remember for sure if it was the Iya valley, but some of the Heike fled to the remote valleys of Shikoku after they lost.

Actually, I should clarify: Kerr's  Chiioriproject in the Iya valley was his way of addressing the problems he wrote about in  Lost Japan. Well, that's the impression I got from a speech of his I heard a long time ago.

/not many Japanese like that valley
//they say it's いや...
///sorry
