Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your├é┬ánostalgia├é┬áreflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

Yebisu is Japans #1 Beer +

YebisuIf you know me personally, then you might know that Im not much of a beer drinker at all. I perfer my alcohol in its purer forms, and cocktails. However there are a few beers that I will drink especially after I have had a bit to drink. Red Stripe and Heineken Light are my go-to beers. I have been trying to sample Japanese beers thanks to ChicKa. So far, I have tried Sapporo and Kirin Ichiban. Between the 2, I like Sapporo the best because it has a lighter taste. However, I am still in search of Yebisu beer here in the Tampa Bay area. For some reason, I cant find that anywhere. WhatJapanThinks.com (Great site if you have never checked it out before) posted a poll earlier in the year that shows Yebisu is Japan’s #1 Premium Beer. If you know where to find Yebisu in Tampa Bay, please send me an email!

    As a beer lover who lived in Japan, I can attest that Ebisu (Y is silent) is great. There were 4 varieties I can recall: the gold can is the “standard”, green is hoppier, red is a more amber-lagerish beer (think Yuengling in the States), and black is a stout.

    However, someone who prefers very light beers or isn’t a self-described beer-lover may find most Yebisu products to be too strong. Of course, I still recommend trying it.
    A hint for distribution purposes, it is brewed by Sapporo, so chances are, you’ll find them near each other!

    Another delicious Japanese beer is Kirin Gold – it seemed like a wheat ale, although a bit lighter than usual.

    Good luck in your search & kanpai!
