And We Can Have Them! 
Looking in from without, the Japanese sense of humor is...an acquired taste. Like the language and culture, it's often highly contextual and quite literally can't be understood until you know what seems like 200-300 inside jokes.
 But, there's one area where Japanese humor really shines for any audience: When Japan goes all meta on itself

SUSHI SOCKS

It's not a self-deprecating humor, per-se, but even the most revered aspects of Japanese culture can be jabbed and poked at for laughs. Food, particularly that which is unique to Japanese culture, is indeed honored and considered essential and fundamental to the Japanese character - but it's not off limits.

Which is why, if you wanna get yourself some sushi towels, Tokyo Otaku Mode has you covered:

Sushi Roll Towels
TOM’s product description:

“These norimaki and tamagomaki towels are from the design geniuses of GeoDesign in Japan. Exuding style, these handy towel are quite humorously designed after tamagomaki, sushi rolled with tamago (egg), and Norimaki, sushi rolled with nori seaweed. When unrolled, they look like very modern striped towels. However, when folded and rolled up, they look just like norimaki and tamagomaki! The colored stripes combine to look like the filling of these delicious sushi rolls. They look oishii, but they are only towels! They include bands to easily keep them wrapped up or hung. A name tag is also affixed to each. The next time you have sushi with friends, surprise them with these fun and useful products!”

Item Specs:

  • Variations: What You See is What You Get; Includes: Norimaki & Tamagomaki Sushi Variations
  • Units: Two Towels/package
  • Available: Now
  • Price: $21.99
  • Size: 340 mm x 340 mm / 13.4 x 13.4 in

Takara Tomy Arts is going to release a Natto mixing machine Rosanjin Natto Bachi on February 6.

Natto - fermented soy beans - is a favorite among Japanese. We usually eat it with rice for breakfast.

However, if you are adventurous and get hooked on its mysterious flavor and texture, Natto will be irresistible for you.
