24/7 softball tournament … only in Japan

With Japan’s problem of negative population growth along with the aging and depopulation of rural areas, has resulted in empty school districts and a lot of excess equipment.
However, Japan’s tradition of imaginative scarecrows* still is going strong. The Japanese sign and tents shown below proclaim that this is a, said-open24-hour Softball Tournament.said-closed

近所の畑のカカシがすごいことになってた。深夜にたまたま見つけたんで死ぬほどビックリした。これは怖い。怖すぎる。カラスとか来ねえ。もっというと人間ですら近づきたくねえ。なんだこのセンス。すごいぞマイタウン — 青木潤太朗 (@aokijuntarou) 2014, 11月 23

Miss International Embarrassment

It’s that time of the year again for the Miss International bimbo-beauty pageant, which this year is being held on November 11th in Tokyo.
See the official photo gallery at: http://miss-international.org/eng/photo-gallery

"Miss Japan Lira Hongo parades during the national costume event…"

At least Miss Japan doesn’t have to wear a "national costume" embarrassment like Miss USA and Miss Nicaragua {snark , snark}.

Get on the Halloween Party Train! Yokohama’s Chinatown to Tokyo’s Shibuya

party-train_220x
Every Halloween for the past 30 years or so, the gaijin/aliens (foreigners) of Tokyo have had a tradition of getting roaring drunk in costume and then turning a couple of cars of the Yamanote commuter line into a “party train” much to the chagrin of sad-sack salarymen.

See right:
Please party on the train!
     (3Yen / 2008-11-01)

  
And, what’s the quickest way to ruin kinky fun? Legalize it

freakaziod-train

On the Tokyu Line between Yokohama’s Chinatown and Tokyo’s Shibuya districts, Tokyu Corporation chartered their own official Halloween Party Train and ruined a lot of the clandestine fun, meh.
To learn more about the original, evil-alien, Halloween Party Train refer to:

The rise of cosplay = The fall of the economy

An interest in cosplay should be a key no-no for any job prospect evaluation by human resources, as I have said countless times* here on the 3Yen.

Why the rise of cosplay is a bad sign for the economy
—Dressing up like Wolverine … is probably more fun than scouring the classifieds for menial jobs—

FEMM’s Tokyo Takeover

MTV Japan has a real winner wiener here…

F.E.M.M.Far East Mention Mannequins’ Tokyo Takeover, an alternative guide to the Japan’s capital…MTV 81femm-tokyo-takeover_crop

Japan’s MTV has always been the wildly unsuccessful, bastard child of the MTV’s localized channels worldwide. As a whole, MTV doesn’t translate well into Japanese and saccharine J-Pop doesn’t present well in the MTV format.

Global Warming in Tokyo results in…

Global Warming has resulted in the loss of habitat for Polar Bears* as evidenced by the appearance of this bear in downtown Shibuya Tokyo.

Translation: said-openIf you were allowed to walk the polar bear in Shibuya, this is what it would look like, ha, ha.said-closed

The above polar bear costume was seen walking to a TV interview in Shibuya last night—I guess it’s always best to test your costume fully before Halloween.
