Skateboarding, jumping rope and wielding lightsabers aren't things we typically expect monks to do.

That was until September, when a monk in Fukui Prefecture was ticketed for wearing his traditional robe while driving. The police officer believed the robe was impeding his ability to operate the vehicle.

In response, monks from all over Japan have taken to Twitter to demonstrate how their Buddhist attire is anything but a hindrance in daily life, using a hashtag that translates as "I can do this in a monk's robe."
