I found this sign yesterday at Kamui Ski Links. I'm not quite sure what the message is.......
It says "No doggy style skiing here". Kidding. It says "Please walk to the parking lot (Please don't ski here)"
Sorry, I drunk too much
This is in our pension:
New special occasion packaging for Pocky:
The one on the right is for Valentine's Day.
Valentine's day is 14th Feb, when men are given something by women in Japan, while 14th March is "White Day" when women are given something by men....
So I guess women will give men Sukky.......
A strawberry sandwich, made with regular white bread. Sitting right next to the egg roll and ham sandwich at a Lawsons in Asahikawa.
My daughters fave japlish saying
When I was having dinner last night while watching tv with my Japanese family, we happened to see this tv commercial, and they were laughing. I couldn't get it at first, but now I get it
to be slightly pedantic, kg/m2?
2 being superscript but ipad can't do it
Recently, a Japanese major tv news program used this map without noticing something is wrong and they apologized later on. Do you notice what is wrong?
Shikoku seems to have changed shape
Should be further north
(If it was China, I'd take it as a threat)
Yep, it actually really happened very recently. It was a rather serious tv news program, which made the mistake even funnier. I guess someone uploaded the map and the staff of the tv news program tried to pick up a map randomly from Google Image, and unfortunately the staff picked up the wrong Japanese map
Australia should be this big
Strangely enough, they are both a slightly similar shape....
They got confused with Yamaguchi
I like how they say the website had a spike in traffic due to twitter. People pissing themselves laughing no doubt
Shock, now the Aussie have invaded Shikoku as well, had hoped they would stay in a small spot on the more northern island .
And this time they took it all
Not only Shikoku island, Yamaguchi prefecture, but also Fukushima prefecture also says "We look like Australia"
I've seen clouds that's look like unicorns.
Looks like the cherry blossoms are starting to open. Lot's of Hanami parties this weekend. But I cna nver understand the idea of "tranquility" of Sakura(Cherry blossom) viewing, when there's:
1. Hundreds or even thousands of people.
2. They bring food & drink, and electric blue ground sheets, instead of a more "tranquil" colour.
ALSO, looks like I will be attending the Kanamara Matsuri at Kawasaki on Sunday, at the Kanayama Shrine.
Kanamara Matsuri = Festival of the steel phalus
they do love their festivals
I was in Kyoto in early 2014 during a festival and there were huge numbers in town, all over the historic buildings etc
lots of young people in traditional garb - who doesn't go for an opportunity to dress up?
Got to agree with all of that. Its like a blue tarp is mandatory if one is to sit on the ground in Japan.
I have 4 sakura trees on my proprerty that were very overgrown so I trimmed them back substantially, will be interesting to see how hard they bloom
But not like this:
Only in Japan.
Indicate five metres before driveway....and pull innnnnn....
you win, champ!
"The Kanamara Matsuri is centred on a local penis-venerating shrine. The legend being that a sharp-toothed demon (vagina dentata) hid inside the vagina of a young woman and castrated two young men on their wedding nights. As a result, the young woman sought help from a blacksmith, who fashioned an iron phallus to break the demon's teeth, which led to the enshrinement of the item"
Personally, I think the story is a phallacy
A visual to explain what goes on.
Went to the Bonden Matsuri in Yokote, Akita in Feb. Same sort of symbolism but probably would be PG rated compared to the Kanamara's MA by the looks of it.
Old mate with the green camp chair is game .
I'm Blue, da-ba-dee-da-ba-die
How lucky I have been - life would have turned out very different had I know 34 years ago.
Quite a few gaijin .... Sucking on penis shaped lollie sticks!!!
Irish American man is Japan’s first-ever foreign official full time ninja
Irish-American. Makes him seem quite exotic.
I've discovered a flaw in the Japanese (food) diet.....
Can you guess what it is?
Japanese workers.... If they work until 9-10pm, they have something to eat about 7pm. All the decent Conbini food is gone so usually what's left over is crap: stale or unhealthy food, or instant noodles.
all the decent food is gone at breakfast dammit
i've never noticed (cause i'm not usually up at 7.30am in Tokyo)... but the lines out the conbinis are off the hook.
