Rocking Rock Lobster!

This morning our Tropical Rock Lobster molted.
Hooray!! *\(^o^)/*
It’s been about 10 months from its last molting and it has grown even larger (^^).
Here’s the lobster shown next to me (I’m 157 cm tall).

The dead-looking guy in the photo, Mr. Gogo7188sakana, works at aquarium “Marine World — Uminonakamichi,” which is located in Kyushu’s Fukuoka City in the deep south of Japan.250px-Panulirus_ornatus

The aquarium’s Tropical Rock Lobster (aka Ornate Rock Lobster, Ornate Spiny Lobster or Ornate Tropical Rock Lobster is the Panulirus ornatus (Wiki, see right)) is quite the monster of the deep, isn’t it?

Tourism in cash-based Japan

3Yen correspondent Rob Pongi reports of the upcoming plans of Japan for 2020 Olympics and Japanese robot suits for making mega money moves.

To the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Tourists,
Welcome to Japan.
The land where both the future and the past exist together in a beautiful harmony.
We understand that you do not like the fact that you cannot use your foreign bank or credit card since we don’t have bank and credit card machines for payment of our goods and everything is paid by cash. And, even if we do have some card readers, we don’t trust foreign banks anyway. Sorry about that.
So for your upcoming trip we have invented another solution. bank-cash-mover
Please enjoy your wonderful stay in Japan!
Signed,
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Committee

May Day fun in Japan

Every May Day in Japan, there is long boring-to-tears parade by Japan’s toothless labor unions from Meiji Shrine (Harauku) to the Diet Building. The high point of today’s pointless parade was this float mocking Prime Minister Abe’s attempts at militarism. (-‿◦☀)
