I don’t know it’s V for victory in Japan too (and elsewhere.) And [not](http://www.google.com/hostednews/getty/media/ALeqM5gswMl3N3ewm6JURIcV_3SKdfr-Kw) [many](http://www.japan-talk.com/images/jt/thumbnails/smiles-991.jpg) [people](http://www.japan-talk.com/images/jt/thumbnails/peace-sign-pose-991.jpg) [look](http://www.japan-talk.com/images/jt/thumbnails/shy-peace-signs-991.jpg)[ like](http://www.japan-talk.com/images/jt/thumbnails/while-in-rome-do-as-the-romans-991.jpg) [they](http://www.japan-talk.com/images/jt/thumbnails/peace-sign-chef-991.jpg) [mean](http://www.japan-talk.com/images/jt/thumbnails/office-lady-991.jpg) [business in those pictures](https://www.google.com/search?es_sm=122&tbm=isch&q=Victory-sign+pose+pictures&oq=Victory-sign+pose+pictures&gs_l=img.3…3699.4248.0.4511.5.5.0.0.0.0.63.291.5.5.0….0…1c.1.27.img..5.0.0.yE9pnZr4BLc&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.53217764,d.dmg,pv.xjs.s.en_US.Es3CeXuAQeM.O&biw=1920&bih=955&dpr=1).

Honestly though, I think it’s just a pose that has long ago crossed multiple cultural boundaries and I think in most places it can stand for peace and victory interchangeably. In Japan, sometimes it means two. For example, sometimes parents will saw “1+1=?” And the kids will say “2 (Ni)” while making the symbol. Kind of like saying cheese. I just think it’s a leap to jump to thinking the photographer asked them to do it. It’s a pretty widespread thing to do when someone takes a picture.
