It’s not the real Green Ranger, but a 27-year old man purchased a costume of the 1990s superhero in a discount store for 4,000 yen ($41). During his spare time, the masked good samaritan comes to a subway station in western Tokyoto help people carry heavy bags or assist mothers with baby strollers when they need to use the stairs.

Japanese people find it hard to accept help, they feel obligated to the other person, so the mask really helps me out,” shared Tadahiro Kanemasu, the man behind the mask of Green Ranger. The colour chosen was inspired by the greengrocer where Kanemasu is working, but he has also purchased pink and red costumes. He also got the idea for his good samaritan deeds from children he met in his workplace.

Compared to how Kanemasu started, he claims that people have been more positive in their response. “When I first began, people basically said, ‘Get away from me, you weirdo’,” he recalled. Kanemasu still thinks that people find him weird, but he believes that it’s “in a good way.”
