WTF Japan?!

First of all, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who's been reading my blog ^__^ I'm always super happy when I see comments from you guys. And you can be sure that I'll be revisiting the baby issue when it comes closer to my friends' delivery dates.

But for this installment, I wanted to post one more set of photos from Japan. As the subject line will indicate, these are all things about Japan that cracked me up or made me go 'Huh?'.

For a country that is so technologically advanced, they sure have some old looking pay phones

From 2006 - Japan ...


Can someone tell me the relation of ostriches and snow?

Does anyone else remember 'Battle of the Planets'?

You mean, you have swords made by the REAL Hattori Hanzo?

An entire movie of a cat just playing and doing regular cat things.

(NB: It's apparently insanely expensive to buy a cat in Japan. They even have services where you can pay a fee to play with a cat of your choice for an hour or so. I didn't know that when I took a picture of this DVD, but now that my friend living in Tokyo told me that, I can sorta understand why this movie was made)

Who knew curling was big in Japan. We found this DVD in a Tower Records.

(You can bet that the game they won against Team Canada will be on there)

An adult dress-up store in Akihabara. I wasn't expecting it to be so prominent, especially not in what could be considered geek central.
