😳 China Town in Yokohama offers a slight new take on aquariums -- named "Omoshiro Suizokukan" (The Funny Aquarium) you'll spot your ordinary aquarium buddies chilling in peculiar settings at this quirky aquatic playground. Pictured above is a live lobster beside a Shrimp Tempura bowl. 🤔
🐠💄Legend has it that if you munch on some mermaid meat, you live until the age of 800, plus you get to maintain your beauty. Though this myth that goes by the name "Yaohime Densetsu" (or Legend of Princess Yao) is known nationwide, it was especially popularized in Fukui since this special mermaid meat was said to be caught at a bay in Obama, Fukui. (Possibly the one pictured above. 😉) It is also note-worthy that #PrincessYao is in the midst of eternal sleep in Ku-inji Temple in Obama, Fukui. 😴
Spotted this unique Japanese beauty product for exercising your smile. You have to talk like Donald Duck while using it though otherwise what's the point. Of course, because Japan, Pikachu and Doraemon made it into this photo too.

One of the delicious (and kinda funny) treats in our Ramen + Sweets Mix Pack. Japanese borrows from all over the world when it comes to food, and these langue de chat (cat's tongue) cookies are a great example of stealing an idea and making it your delicious own. Japanese take their French pastries seriously and it shows. Try one of these D'asses as soon as you can!
