WTF YAMJH ?!?

WhatTheFcuk?
Yikes! Tomorrow August the 11th, is YAMJH—Yet Another Mysterious Japanese Holiday—Mountain Day

 
…This year marks the first occurrence of Mountain Day (Yama no Hi, 山の日) since it is a brand-new national holiday for appreciating Japan’s mountains.

The new holiday is intended to coincide with the vacation time usually given during the Bon Festival (Japan’s Halloween-cum-return-of-spirits-of-the-dead) held in mid-August.

chiken ramen little chicken many noodles
As I have written about before (3Yen 2011-08-26), a Nissin Foods signature product, Chikin [sic] Ramen is one of the two noodle products that form the base of the food pyramid of the Japanese salarymen*.

As shown in the photo below, the dining room for guests at the Chikin Ramen head office offers an interesting peek of how Nissin Foods meets the massive demand for the huge amounts of chicken for their ramen.

Note: Nissin Foods intentionally spells “Chikin” incorrectly.

In case you were wondering, “Hiyoko-chan,” the mascot of the Chikin Ramen, is peeking up from the entrance hall of head office and wondering about the impending doom of lunchtime.
