You have to call KDDI to opt-out of their Android targeted advertising. CALL, as in you have to do the support center, talk to a human thing. What a pack of FAIL.

Google Advertising Cookie Opt-out Plugin
While I don't like the idea of opting out via plugin, this may be a better compromise than other solutions in terms of usability...

TagMeNot privacy: no face recognition, don't tag, blur my face.
Needs some critical mass of users to get the necessary uptake, but conceptually this isn't a bad idea. There is the issue of the marker code being legible enough for OCR/QRcode detection software to detect. This puts a limit on the data payload/complexity of the tag, since if viewed from far away, the QRcode wouldn't be decodable, despite detecting that a QRcode of some kind is present.

Google Ads Preferences
Interesting thing for tweaking google ads demographic and preference data in your browser cookie. Can forcefully opt-out so there is no targeting, but you can also help it by adding more category/demographic information so ads are more relevant to you.
