As this Japanese toilet signage says, Good poo is born in a comfy place.″ (3Yen | 2014-10-28).

That is, poo is precious according Toilet Japan‘s PR campaign.

Toilet wants us to, “think compassion is to clean the toilets in Japan.”toilet-spirit They also remind us that the honorable Toilet Spirit — Benjo-gami of Shinto (Wiki) is awaiting with retribution for those with poor toilet manners. →

A bit less boring and bellicose than Uncle Sam’s “I WANT YOU!” here is the recruiting poster I found in my Tokyo subway for Japan’s “I ☆ P’s” [sic] idols of the country’s ‘Self-Defense Forces’ who want you!


goofy Google Translate of a Self-Defense Force recruiting site:
This is the new design for Japan’s Self-Defense Forces recruiting posters …. the refreshing image of the new design will bring a bright and positive frame of mind…in a fresh illustration such that wants to continue to challenge something. The new recruiting slogan will be, “The shining me!


The fearsome “I ☆ P’s” military recruiting characters pictured are:
i-shiining-p• Miss Lark of the Air Self-Defense Force dressed in air force blue.
• Miss Rose of the Maritime Self-Defense Force dressed in navy whites.
• Miss Plum of the Ground Self-Defense Force dressed army green.

Drink PET SWEAT™ — only in Japan


via @AdsilaMika | Oct. 5, 2016

PET SWEAT™ has been marketed for the past seven years as an energy drink for dogs, which is rather funny since dogs don’t really sweat except on areas not covered with fur, such as their nose and paw pads (Wiki).pocari_sweat

PET SWEAT™ is a product line spin-off of the Japan’s most popular (and most unfortunately-named) sports drink, Pocari Sweat™ →

I figured the above poster was just a Photoshop—But nope, it’s real. So, I helped Goji-chan make something more over-the-top.

Again with the ‘GOT OTER UKI’

Usually, Japanese election campaign posters such as those for upcoming Tokyo gubernatorial contest are very boring Like these.

japan election posters

Occasionally, you can see a weirdo like this
Vote for   GOT   OTER   UKI   poster.

Actually, GOT  OTER  UKI  is just a strange romanization of Goto Teruki’s name on his “creative” 2013 campaign poster. ( | 2015-04-21)

His poster for this year’s Tokyo gubernatorial race is much more serious.


Goto Teruki’s 2015 campaign poster was even more right-wing crazy and nude…

nude candidate ( | 2015-04-21)

The really crazy thing is that I support many of the ideas of his campaign platform (Google Translate)

  • Abort the 2020 Tokyo Olympics or make it ultra-low cost endeavor.
  • Cancel the Tsukiji Fish Market relocation, and review.
  • Stop the duplication and waste of Tokyo having two municipal subway systems, the Toei Subway and the Tokyo Metro, which double charge when crossing the two systems.
  • Introduce a vehicle exhaust tax to spread the use of eco-cars.
  • Rebuild Edo Castle the restore the castle tower.
  • Legalize cannabis and revive the hemp industry.
  • Etc.

Non-silicon playtime is squeaky—oil is sticky. It’s common sense to approach nether-hair care of the next generation. A smooth soap-job provides comfort without being too squeaky. Then, a good lube job can gently dirt the hair, oil treatment to penetrate deeply. Uniquely formulated lube without stickiness provides a slippery sleek finish-cum-happy ending.″
