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

Oh Family Mart, you care so much about steamed buns…

Family Mart is going to release cute nikuman versions of Gachapin and Mukku. They were born in the old-school Japanese TV program for children "Hirake! Ponkikki" and are still much loved characters.

Today, a new type of Yakiniku (Japanese-style BBQ) restaurant called Tokkyu Yakiniku has opened in Osaka, Japan.

"Tokkyu", a part of the restaurant name, means express train in Japanese. The reason why the restaurant was named like that is obvious: at the restaurant, all the dishes and drinks are delivered on a moving plate on a train track. Yes, it's like a Kaiten-sushi / Rotating sushi / Sushi train, but instead of sushi, slices of meat come to your table by express train.

House Wellness Food today released a new energy drink called SAMURIDE ENERGY DRINK produced with "Japan" as the theme.

Speaking of energy drinks available in Japan, foreign products like Red Bull and Monster Energy, come to mind first if you live here. Of course, there are many old school longtime energy drinks that exist here like Lipovitan D, Tiovita and Alinamin V, however it's hard to think of any "fashionable" Japanese energy drink brand easily.

Valentine's day is just around the corner.

A slightly pink-colored burger called Sakura Teritama is going to be released tomorrow until mid-April from McDonald's Japan.

The basic teritama burger is one of the most popular seasonal burgers from McDonald's that you can buy in Japan.  It is a pork patty coated with Teriyaki sauce and cooked egg.

Now they have announced the release of a very special Cherry Blossom version - Sakura Teritama!

Nissin just released the first product from their new instant noodle series called JACK.

The first JACK instant noodle, just released 2 days ago, is a super-hot instant friend noodle that comes with spicy powder made from 3 stimulating ingredients: habanero pepper, wasabi and hot mustard. Nissin calls the power "JACK powder". The provided sauce to mix with the noodle contains sweet soybean paste and spicy sichuan pepper.

Keystone Technology's LED vegetable garden system is a cultivation system for indoor plant factories which uses LED lighting instead of sunlight. The most defining feature of the system on display at the company's showroom in Yokohama is its 3-dimensional use of space.

Today, Acecook announced that they are going to release the EDGE Onikara Yakisoba (Onikara means literally "Devil-Spicy" meaning insanely-hot fried noodles) on May 12.

I guess that Japanese people generally are not good at spicy food, so dishes called "super-hot" here in Japan might be considered only medium spicy by foreign people. But hopefully Acecook won't disappoint us with its level of the spiciness, and can live up to its Onikara name!

The perfect toy for surviving the brutally hot Japanese summer will be released by Takara Tomy Arts on May 22. It is the "Tsumeta Oicino" compact frozen drink machine.

"Tsumeta Oicino" is a created word making Tsumetai (cold) and Oishii (delicious) sound like Italian language words.

You can easily make an original frozen drink at home using coffee, milk, maccha, and strawberries.

No words are needed to explain how cute they are!

It's awesome to see the cuteness of cats become doubled when they are on rice. Neko-Sushi… It is a simple work of photoshopping, however, it will give you a warm feeling every time you look at them.

Guaranteed to make many smiles! :)
