Hundreds of Japanese ultra-nationalists held a demonstration that turned in a brawl on a Tokyo street crowded with Sunday shoppers yesterday…
…According to the morning edition of today’s Chunichi Shimbun (goofy Google Translate):
Anti-Korean demo in Tokyo turns into a street brawl leading to eight arrests
On Sunday the 16th, right-wing groups demanding the elimination of Koreans in Japan staged a march through “Korean Town” by Tokyo’s Shin-Okubo Station. These demonstrations have been held every weekend for more than a month. At last Sunday’s demo, about 200 to 300 anti-Korean protesters carried “hate speech” signs emblazoned with slogans like, “Kill the Koreans!” …
…According to the police, at 4:30 pm, about two hundred anti-Korean protesters began to clash intermittently with opposing bystanders numbering about three hundred and fifty persons. Eight people were arrested and about four hundred and fifty people received warnings from the police ...more…

The lame conversation starter that every Japanese person will bore you with is that Japan is blessed above all nations in the world with “four seasons.”
However, right now we’re in the throes of Japan’s fifth season, the Rainy Season.
You might ask, WTF is with all these hanging ghosts made of toilet paper?
They are ‘Teru teru bozu’—a rain-rain-go-away-come-again-another-day effigy and Japan’s creepiest character. Japanese children make these talismans that are supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to prevent a rainy day (Wiki).
The empire is prepared for the rainy season in Japan.

The anime film with the more-than-a-mouthful name, “Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya” (Gekijōban Gintama Kanketsu-hen: Yorozuya yo Eien Nare aka ) is debuting in Japanese theaters on July 6, 2013. Learn details about it at Animenewsnetwork.com.
To promote the film, they are offering Gintama-themed popcorn in three Japanese flavor horrors: konbu seaweed, sweet red Adzuki bean or vile sugary sweet mayonnaise.

Japan’s version of the Barbie doll, Rika-chan aka Licca-chan aka has hooked up with the Hula Girls of Fukushima Prefecture, which is better known for Fukushima nuclear disaster (Wiki).
According to MANTANWEB (2013Jun15 — Google Translate): A life-size Licca-chan shows off her dancing with the Hula Girls.
As shown in the photos above, a life-size Licca-chan dances the hula at new product presentation “International Tokyo Toy Show” at Tokyo Big Site convension center.
MANTANWEB news goes on to explain that Takara Tommy Toy Company has launched a new Licca-chan dress-up doll in collaboration with the “Spa Resort Hawaiians” leisure facilities of Fukushima, which obviously is having trouble attracting customers to their triple-cursed prefecture that was ravaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown of 2011 (Wiki).
This radioactive Rika-chan hula doll is sort of fitting because Licca-chan dolls have also spawned a long-running urban legend amongst Japanese high school students called the curse of the “Three Legged Licca-chan.”
The legend goes that if a girl enters a toilet at her school, and finds a Rika-chan doll on the floor with a purple third leg, she will lose one of her own legs shortly after. She can then grow a purple leg, that is not functional, which will eventually take over her body, causing death (Wiki).
Nasty Oculolinctus—eyeball-licking—seems to be becoming a ‘normal dating practice’ in Japan for the youngest teens in Japan…
Eyeball-Licking Fetish Causes Eye Patch Epidemic Among Kids

…gathered information from the Japanese internet about eyeball-licking in grade 6 elementary school children (usually aged around 12 years old), who say that it is part of normal dating practice among their peers…more...
The “nasty” part is that eyeball-licking spreds a bacteria called trachoma is is the same as the STD chlamidiya and this can damage vision to nearly the point of blindness. Eew.
Previous Japanese eyeball news reported on the 3Yen includes:

It’s hard to say who is more pathetic. The Japanese cops who were so soundly sleeping they didn’t notice thieves smashing in their glass font door of their tiny, two-arms-width, koban/police substation, or the thieves who risked breaking in to steal a glorified wooden stick.
