I have covered photos of Japanese practice mannequins many 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:

Sit on Pedobear’s face for 197,000 Japanese yen!

No, no, Chris Hanson1 is not really asking you to sit on the face of Pedobear2. This loveseat is actually made to resemble the popular character “Rilakkuma*“—whose name is a Japanese mangling of engrish “relax” and Japanese “kuma” meaning bear.

Matrixed

‘Den4′, the 3Yen’s correspondent-at-large writes…

In two papers (nature.com) (dailygalaxy.com), Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan and his colleagues now provide, if not an actual proof, at least compelling evidence to the truth of Maldacena’s Conjecture1—that is, that our universe is holographic2.

Figures that it would be Japanese scientists that would find some possibilities that we’re living in a hologram Matrix…

what-if I told you matrix..

Whoa-dude

Lucky lobsters?

Festive lucky lobsters for Japanese New Years…

…are found on automobiles and entranceways.

  

Shimekazari are a traditional New Year's decoration that are put out for luck as part of Shinto beliefs. The shide–the white zigzagging, paper strips are meant to keep away bad spirits and the lobsters denote longevity (since lobsters are bent over like old person).

Nowadays, not many people bother to put Shimekazari on their cars but there are plenty of lucky flying lobsters still around to play with Godzilla for the New Years holiday.
