Putting the “flash” in Flash Mob…
The Japan Swimsuit Association want to make sure we all flashed in this Tokyo event.
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’?

youpouch.com 2015/June/04 (Google Translate):
The “Vice Fairy” brand of Shibuya Tokyo has been a hot topic around the Japanese Net since last year. The two brother’s of the fashion brand have become famous wearing their own designs of jibei/jams and yukata/robes. This summer Vice Fairy is back in once again with “transcendent” fashion shots of themselves and their “cool copywriting.”
The fashion brand “Stella McCartney” had an opening party on May 20th for their new store in Aoyama (north Harajuku Tokyo). For that opening they managed to scare up the current designer/stepmother of Hello Kitty, Yuko Yamaguchi (Wiki).
As we always say on the 3Yen, You Can Never Have Enough HELLO KITTY. Right?
Freaky-fraudulent Japanese nose improvement devices are one of the most commented on topics* here on the 3Yen over the years.
Even though these quack health items are useless, torturous nose clamps like the Hanahana™ “nose reformer“ attract much interest from the nasally challenged in Japan.
Today I was delighted to stumble across a new torture device marketed to fight the Japanese phobia of having a too small nose, the COPONG™.
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.
