japanese-trash-chart

 

Garbage in Japan is incinerated (not placed in landfills). Before putting it out for collection you have to first separate it into many categories (R) that broadest being ‘burnable’ or ‘non-burnable’ (details).

Looking at this years fall fashions of Comme Des Garcons Aoyama, you gotta ask:
   • Is a bored Japanese fashion model wearing full trashbags a ‘burnable’ or ‘non-burnable’?

   • Is an embarrassed model wearing used adult diapers a ‘burnable’ or ‘non-burnable’?japanese adult diapers fashion model

Getting nosy in Japan

HanaHana
Freaky-fraudulent Japanese nose improvement devices are one of the most commented on topics* here on the 3Yen over the years.

Aside from the fun of ramming a springy nasal splint up your nose, I was trying to figure out why it is obtrusively colored black. It would seem a black device would be highly noticeable.

It turns out that this black device is from the US where the Nose Secret “Instant Results Reshape Your Nose Kit” was developed for the Afro-American market.
