With Japan’s continued ban of dancing in clubs (3Yen 2014-07-12), Japan’s Jaxx Industries presents a twerking robot, the TW3RK-BOT, that never-says-never to dance.
The quickest way to insult a Japanese is to say they’re Korean and vice versa. The two groups despise each other. So, you can imagine how horrified the the Japanese reporter in this news segment was to find K-pop being promoted at the Japanese government sponsored “Cool Japan” Expo in Paris.
Of course, how could the French know the difference between K-poop and J-poop?

Doraemon (L) has been Japan’s most beloved character since 1969 (3Yen / 2014-02-14). However, Doraemon has gone turncoat and has announced he will be working for Disney Corporation (Examiner.com), meh.

In case you were wondering what the joke is all about…
The satanic passport is a parody of the Japanese passport (right), and Roppongi Hills has Japan’s highest concentration of foreign firms and whinging* foreign employees.
*For most part, they’re rightfully whinging
employees since Japan has an unenviable
working (& living) situation compared to
the upper-middle class environment that
the foreigners came from (or aspire to).

Mount Fuji is primed to spew.

The last time Mt. Fuji blew was the Hōei eruption was in 1707 and comparatively not many people lived nearby and no deaths (Wiki). Today, a larger eruption would affect a 80km radius—Several million people could be hit because the base of Mt. Fuji is now an urban area of the city of Gotemeba. One estimate predicts that a major eruption would cause 750,000 refugees (Japan Today / 2014Feb09).
