Toshikoshi Soba

We eat toshikoshi (year end) soba (buckwheat noodle) at the year end wishing our lives are fine and long like noodles.

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.
