I’d hate to pop this Japanese official’s cherry…

Can’t help feeling there might be better ways for Yamagata’s deputy governor to promote his region’s cherries. pic.twitter.com/xVq6dOSVDv

Yamagata’s deputy governor must be a relative of former Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshio Sakaurauchi who famously introduced himself to the Washington press corps by saying, “My name is Cherry.

Bag hag’s Boston Bag

boston-bag
Thinkbay®’s Cute Dog Handbag
, which they refer to by the more-than-a-mouthful term, said-openCrossbody Clutch Purse Shoulder Bag Cartoon Puppy Satchel,said-closed is quite remarkable.

More remarkable is the alien bag hag (urban dictionary) shown below modeling their Boston Bull (Wiki) bag.

Available on Amazon.com
.

Although Thinkbay®’s designs appeal to Japan tastes and their advertising features Japanese text, Thinkbay describes themselves as,
said-opena little team with five young guys who are full-time working on eBay,said-closed out of Hong Kong. Therefore the alien bag hag could just be an example of over-the-top Chinese plastic surgery.

Japan’s Ministry of Silly Walks* offers for your pleasure…

cruel clogs of japan animated

Yesterday was the grand Oiran/Hooker Parade of Tokyo’s Asakusa temple–cum–pleasure district.
The cosplaying ladies shown below are pretending to be Oiran (Wiki), or high-class courtesans/hookers, and they reenact the grand Oiran Dochu, the parade around the pleasure quarters of Tokyo’s Yoshiwara district (Wiki).


Ok, let’s get a close-up of the hooker’s Cruel Shoes (3Yen / 2012-06-06)

View videos of yesterday’s hooker parade and the cinematic version of the Oiran Parade in our COMMENTS section…

Because? …because Japan

As part of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week TOKYO 2014 Autumn/Winter, the Japanese fashion house, alice auaa, put on an entertaining show at the Shibuya Hikarie complex on March 21st…


____________________________

Designer Yasutaka Funakoshi—shown below with a leather tassel hanging—takes a bow on the runway. On his website, Yasutaka Funakoshi explains “because” as
left_long quotebar 24x260px
alice auaa designs do not merely categorize duality, such as beauty and ugliness, and light and shadow, through a decadent and surreal filter based on the color black, but rather convey a mode of avant-garde and romanticism based on the endless motif of the time of life in everything (creation from destruction), and the elegance and eroticism that dwells in incommodiousness.

Remember: That’s just a leather tassel hanging—nothing more.

Let’s all fundoshi/loincloth happy!

fundoshi-girl

Who could ever guess that March 14th is Let’s give Fundoshi (traditional Japanese loincloths) Back Day in Japan?
famous fudoshi girl japanese
 

Technically, February 14th is Fundoshi Day. Since that is Valentine’s Day, only Japanese women are obligated to give men gifts but not vice versa. Therefore, March 14th is promoted as the day for men to give women “Fundoshi Back” with loincloth gifts for the ladies.

Whoopie!

Let’s all loincloth and be happy!

Japanese snow dregs

The Northern two thirds of Japan is just digging out the dregs of the second monster snowstorm in as many weeks, which means it’s time for Yukidaruma/snowmen!

First off is an Osaka hairdresser showing off a breezy snow style for “Obahan” (middle-aged) ladies…

Wait a minute…there are barber snowmen too…too real and scary, hee, hee, hee.

I have covered the “alternative” uses for hairdresser practice mannequin heads several times before here on the 3Yen.
By law, Japanese beauty school students must practice several months on dummy heads before attempting to cut a person’s hair. This law leads to a huge number practice heads being thrown out as well as a lot of creative “repurposing” of creepy heads in Japan such as:
News on Japan – We Cut Heads
. . . We Cut Heads
. . . . . (3Yen / 2011-04-20)

. . . Haircut heads turn into ‘grow heads’
. . . . . (3Yen / 2011-02-03)

. . . Let’s kakashi/scarecrow!

Exercise the facial muscles by simply breathing greatly in addition to mouth! Reduces the sagging of the face, worries about age lines, and nasolabial folds…fun to use easily even in the bath or while watching the TV.

Perhaps the Face Stretch©’s packaging is the most fun…
