I have updated Tokyo Kawaii TV page, about school uniform fashion so please check that out.
I think that’s fun especially if you are interested in cutting-edge Tokyo fashion!
I am not a teenager nor 20-something any more, but I really love to watch the show and am happy to share it with my blog readers.
I decided to announce here to my blog readers whenever I write a new article in any pages to this blog, from this time on. That’s because updating blog post (home) is known by RSS, while updating a new article in my “page” section (that is just under the title bar) is not known. This also led me not to update the contents of the pages so often. Oops, that sounds like an excuse… 😳
In addition to that, I have another reason that I wanna exchange opinions, comments, or conversations between my blog readers thru my posts. But articles under pages do not allow that function. So I have no idea how my post was read, thought, reacted, and so on.
So, back to the school uniform fashion, I personally like that! I’m not at the age of wearing school uniform but I miss it. Maybe I miss that era…

|Rakuten is the biggest & most popular online shopping mall in Japan. I often purchase the goods for my dog, electric appliances, books at some stores that belong to Rakuten.
So today when I was looking for a toothpaste & tooth care item for my dog, I happened to find this funny looking Edamame toy.
Just by looking I thought this toy might be related to Puchimoe because the concept just seemed similar.
And yes, I was right!
This kind of toy looks funny and a little bit weird to me.
I’m not a kind of person who kills time by playing with this sort of gadget, but it’s fun enough to introduce here at my blog 🙂
When we eat Edamame we press the Edamame bag to put out the beans.
This toy is just the same but it looks like beans never drop off, so we have to keep pressing the bag until we get bored. (This is the point of the toy. There should be some good feeling with that.) Also it’s kinda cute that beans have the 12 types of “face” which you will never know which one of them to be delivered when you order.

They have many similar products.
What do you think of this?
Funny? Weird? Stupid? Wanna try?
Let me quote this post here, since I recently had a comment from a reader of this blog asking if plastic food samples are still available and common in Japan. The answer is YES! Moreover, what’s interesting is that those samples can be purchased by foreign tourists as “souvenir” to go back home! Those samples are sold in a particular place so that restaurant owners, for example, may come to buy them for wholesale price.
One of the most popular Japanese souvenirs to foreign tourists is Japanese foods made of plastic.
This Sushi, for example, is all made from plastic and usually displayed at the entrance of the restaurants. They look so real, aren’t they? There is a place where you can buy these plastic foods in Tokyo, which is called “Kappabashi”
||Needless to say, there are so many kinds of plastic foods available at Kappabashi district. Even Japanese people like me, can enjoy browsing around…Actually, when I went there for the first time, that was with my friend from the U.S.A before she went back. She was looking for some nice souvenirs out there.
Here’s another sample, at the bottom. It’s Tonkatsu, or pork cutlet. Mmm…look yummy, huh? Well I have to tell you these samples are not as cheap as they look. I mean it’d be much cheaper if you order the real food than the sample.
I used to quote the great video from Youtube showing how these samples are made, but it seems no longer available by now…sorry for that!
