Kim Jong-Un has his face featured on a bizarre billboard in the heart of Tokyo's red-light district.
The North Korean despot was spotted by an eagle-eyed Reddit user while they trawled the streets of the Japanese capital on Google Maps.
Kim, who assumed the post of Supreme Leader of the secretive state in 2011, has his face emblazoned on the hoarding of a car park.
His likeness is joined by stars of Japanese culture on the billboard in Kabukicho, the heart of Tokyo's nightlife and also home to its red light district.
It is also reportedly home to hundreds of members of the Yakuza, the Japanese Mafia, and is seen as a hot spot for organised crime in the city.
The district is the inspiration for the setting of the Yakuza video game series, where players can control gang members in the fictional city of Kamurocho.
Sharing a screenshot to Reddit, a user wrote: "Spot the odd one out."
Gamers were quick to identify the parking lot, which features in the video game series.
One wrote: "Every Yakuza player knows that parking lot."

Another replied: "I swear I've been there in Yakuza."
While a third posted: "Gangnam style feat. ILL Kim", a reference to the 2012 K-Pop hit by PSY.
It is not known why Kim features on the artwork or who commissioned it.
Kim is the third generation of the ruling dynasty to be Supreme Leader of the country.
