Prime Minister Abe (R) and the government’s “Cool Japan™” initiative is sponsoring a huge, official NINJA KANCHO ATTACK.
The purpose of this poking kancho anus attack is to promote tourism by using “ninja culture as a magnet (Japan Today / 2018-Dec-12)” with the approach of the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan and 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Previous kancho attacks on the 3Yen include:
- Ninja prayer pose pants? (3Yen / 2016-12-21)
- Japanese schoolyard kancho menace (3Yen / 2010-10-29)
- Higher education Kan-CHO! in Japan (3Yen / 2010-09-18)
Be bear! Be careful everybody, mon!〜☆
(The bear mascot, Kumamon, revels in Tokyo’s Yamamote Line’s priority Bariatric Seating for three persons.)

For past week in Yokohama, I’ve been stumbling across sidewalk signs reading:
Nothing is charming“.
But hey, everything in Japan is a bit mysterious…especially mangled engrish.
When I finally bothered to read the fine print, I discovered out the Yokohama City government and local businesses especially Starbucks Coffee Japan are holding an holding a “light down event” (sic) named Nothing is Charming on December 11, which is the 21st anniversary of the Kyoto Protocol.
On Tuesday night from 7:00 to 8:00 PM, all lights in the cafes will be turned down to let people enjoy “Nothing” (and to “rethink our life without lights”). Originally the plan was to ban the use of any electronic devices during the “
Nothing” event but the most recent press releases don’t mention that any more here in the Land of the Smartphone Obsessed™.

Japan’s Land Ministry has come up with a symbol to designate buildings and places which have been hit by a tsunami. sankei.com/photo…
The early Greek temple on that logo does not look like a Japanese building (3Yen / 2008-06-29) at all. The Land Ministry must using the symbol to make the woes of the great tsunami of Atlantis a teachable point.

Q: Why puking-good-fun “art” toys like the “MER CONTINENT” series?
A: Because of Japanese world’s highest rate of negative population growth, TOMY decided that adult toys would soon be their only market since Japan has so few children being born. Hence, Tomy’s new hinky “T.ARTS” brand.
