Soon long lines will be forming outside branches of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Japanese salarymen will be dragging a greasy bucket home as a proper Christmas feast for the family. The traditional Japanese custom of eating KFC on Christmas is so popular that stores take reservations months in advance (Wikipedia).
A festive, green, alien, rice-ball head pooping out a golden Christmas tree makes perfect Japanese sense for this holiday season, doesn’t it?
This pooping Xmas wish came from the official TENGA blog (goofy Google Translate): “TENGA is a supporter of the Makoto Aida exhibition—Multiple work limitation for ‘people who do not think’ has arrived!”

“Kawatebukuro” — Doughboy starfish
(diameter about 20cm)

Is it a bustier/bustiere* top, or is it a Japanese eye mask?
You make the call (no fair reading the Japanese description or translation).

Today is Godzilla Day!
Godzilla has earned this honor for all the times he’s outright flattened Japan. Oddly, this is also Japanese Culture Day.
November 3rd—Gojira no hi, ゴジラの日—marks the opening day of the original Gojira/Godzilla in 1954.
