Um, it was in Israel, but served to Prime Minister Abe.

I don't follow the Israeli media's logic that because the Japanese take off their shoes indoors, serving a novelty desert in an imitation shoe was an insult; seems to me they're trying to create a fuss.

So that subject would have been "Japanese buildings and streets", because I wanted some reference books with good pictures for building a diorama...

And now for some Hello Kitty merchandise that's a bit crazy but not lingerie, and still something you can be inside of:

That article reads like the plot for an SF movie...

The robot suit is named "HAL", developed by a company called "Cyberdyne", and was reprogrammed from a (sheltered) factory setting to helping with disaster recovery in the outside world, a well-known condition for AI to go rogue in movie-land. :emogendo:

would there be unofficial holidays for nice boobs day, Panties Day/Bunny Day, and let's not forget Maid Day all celebrated openly on Japanese Twitter. If you decide to look, I would say the images are all NSFW in some way or another.
