    Hi. I'm a passerby but have an answer to the question from Herbi, so I'm adding a comment here. :)
    Those two guys are wearing traditional raincoats made of straw. It is called "mino" in Japanese.

    The Sanden Electrics (there is a huge sign behind those guys saying Sanden Electrics サンデン電気株式会社 in japanese ) started in 1943 and got pretty big since 1948.
