    Fukuro no Mise is a cafe in Tsukishima, Japan, with a bunch of domesticated owls that patrons can interact with (have sit on own hand/shoulder, take pictures with). It's extremely popular though, so you have to get in line before they open, pay 2,000 (~$17), then come back at ... / Continue →

    This is the Oppai Taisou Hand, a $28 piece of plastic that's supposed to make your breasts look and feel better. From what I can tell from the pictures, it it works by dragging back fat around and adding it to your tits. That, of course, makes no sense. Thankfully, there's a... / Continue →

    This is a video of 16-year old Japanese drumming sensation Senri Kawaguchi tearing up her drum set to a background tape track. It gets even more intense towards the end. Now I'll be the first to admit I'm not very good at telling if a musician is particularly good or not, but... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese thrill-seekers playing a game of Crocodile Dentist in which they've attached a bunch of razor blades to the top of the croc's mouth. Looks like fun. I'm kidding, it looks terrifying. I sliced my thumb open to the bone on a broken glass a coupl... / Continue →

    As proof that you can never get a burger that looks even remotely like the one in the ads, these are several pictures of Burger King Japan's all-black burgers spotted in the wild. As you can see, they look like shit. Which is a shame too, because of all the countries I'd beli... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Mad Hatter hat juggler in Japan. He juggles hats. Plus rolls them down his arms and across his back, puts them on, takes them off, stuff like that. It looks like he'd make the perfect addition to my traveling sideshow. Just a heads up though, bro -- y... / Continue →

    Because pretty much everything you've ever thought you've known is a filthy lie, Sanrio recently mentioned that Hello Kitty isn't a cat, she's a little girl. Wait -- so like, a furry? Because she looks an awful lot like a cat. If she's not playing dress-up all the time then ... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots and a video of Batman cruising a highway in Japan on his custom trike. What's he doing in Japan? No clue. Maybe he cleaned up all the crime in Gotham already. Or maybe Gotham is such a shithole he just gave up and decided fighting crime in Japan wou... / Continue →
