Kyoto is a place where people should experience the delicate beauty of Japan, but after hearing this news, we hope that Kyoto will not forget the Japanese spirit of modesty and aesthetic sense...

Pizza Little Party, a home-delivered pizza chain in Kyoto, is going to start selling the massive burger-like pizza called "Mega Burger Pizza" on September 1.

A 400g patty, onion, pickles, and meat sauce, etc. are sandwiched between two 27cm diameter cheesy pizza crusts as buns. It's 2,580 yen and will be sold only for 3 months.

Calbee just released DORAEMON potato chips which will be sold for a limited time only until early May.

They are basic salt flavor potato chips that come with 2 DORAEMON illustrated cards in each bag. There are a total of 72 different cards including "Normal cards" with funny DORAEMON, valuable "Color cards with original drawings", and "Famous scene cards" displaying a whole page from the comic book on the card.

If you are a big fan of DORAEMON, happy snacking and good luck collecting all 72 cards!

Actually the noodle maker was already released in Taiwan and China, and Japan is the third country to sell it. However, Philips prepared something special only for Japan.
