Maglite Spare Bulb

I didn't know it's hiding under the spring in the base. Well, how was I supposed to know? Does this guy come with a manual?

Train Delay Certificate

Delay Certificate - 10 Minutes

This shitty piece of paper gives a valid reason for your lateness to work/school. It also proves Japanese are less effective people. I've seen station staff issuing 4 min delay certificates. Who gives a shxt about several minutes late? Japanese companies do. They don't care about their employees' going out for smoking 10 times a day though.

Fish or Die


The sign is posted at the entrance of the deadliest pier in Ibaraki prefecture. It says 62 have been killed fishing there because of big waves. Another 3 died last weekend. Must be a very good fishing spot.

Screw Cap Wine

It seems screw caps are getting more and more popular. I guess it provides the best seal but opening wine is no longer fun.

Mammoth Meat !?

Found mammoth meat chips.

Siberian salt flavor. Siberian salt, um?

*Does not contain mammoth meat.

I just double-checked it's not dog food before I ate it. 0 point.

Pepsi Azuki

Red bean (azuki) flavored Pepsi. Kind of cinnamonish. It's not Azuki at all.

Kichijoji Anime Wonder Festival

I ran across an anime event at Inokashira park. Here is a couple of movies. Both of the singers are kind of legendary figures in Japanese anime songs; Takako Ota from Creamy Mami and Masayuki Yamamoto from Time Bokan series.

Manga Reader Guy at Inokashira Park

This guy is funny. He reads a manga of your choice for you.

Reading Anpanman

KitKat - Apple Vinegar Flavor

Tastes like yogurt flavored pretzel.

EDIT: Found there are lots more weired flavors: Wiki

Street Buttle Team

I've seen 'fack you' several times but this one is new to me. Maybe it's some kind of street fight using one's butt. Just imagine, it's funny.
