REAL-F is a Japanese company that claims it is “pursuing a ‘real’ that exceeds the real.” While it’s hard to come up with a tangible image of what that could mean, the company has indeed succeeded in creating a mask that is so realistic we’re not sure we want to see anything that exceeds it.

Using a technology developed in-house called 3 Dimension Photo Form (3DPF), the folks at REAL-F will take multiple high-resolution images of your face from different angles and imprint them on a vinyl chloride resin mold. The mask, officially known as “The Real Mask,” is so detailed that it even your blood vessels, pores, and iris details will appear on the final product. Read More

The goldfish booth is a favorite pastime at Japanese summer festivals. Kids plop down a couple coins and get a flimsy paper net with which to catch goldfish out of an inflatable pool. The object is to catch as many fish as possible before the net breaks.

For one day in Akihabara, grown men had the chance to fish for something far more exotic than some fish that will go belly-up in a few days. On August 28, grown men plopped down single 500-yen coins and got a string fixed with a metal hook with which to catch plastic balls out of an inflatable pool.

The fantastic prize? Striped panties wadded up and stuffed inside the balls.  Oh, Japan.

The event took place at adult superstore “m’s” in Akihabara. Overwhelmingly popular Akihabara information site Akiba Blog reports that the women’s underwear came in blue, pink, and green striped patterns.

Some would call this event nothing more than a chance for perverts to snatch women’s underwear in broad daylight with their dignity intact. Perhaps it’s better to believe that the men who lined up to go fishing for panties were looking for presents for their girlfriends and wives.

Chinese Weather Girl’s T-Shirt Eludes Censors, Causes Storm

An apparently unwitting weather forecaster walked into the WZTV studio in Zhejiang Province, China wearing a T-shirt bearing arguably the most offensive (and versatile) word in the English language.

The censors slumbered and studio personnel allowed the young woman to give her cheerful report of the day’s weather with said word emblazoned across her chest above an angry and possibly homicidal cousin of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh.

We’re smack in the middle of summer’s stifling heat, and it’s hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. It’s hot enough to boil a monkey’s bum. But is it hot enough to cook meat and vegetables on your car dashboard?

Shoplifting at supermarkets, bookstores, and the like has been on the rise in Japan in recent years. As a result, it is now common to see signs posted outside of stores that read “Stealing is a crime” or “We report theft.” Some stores will even post police and damage reports so that those considering the five-finger discount can see exactly how much they are risking.

Usually when someone is caught stealing by an employee they are escorted to the back and told to wait until the police come. However, there is supposedly one grocery store here in Japan that explicitly states it does not report theft to the police.

Instead, the paper posted to the wall of the store reads: “Stealing is a crime. If we discover theft in our store, we will not report you to the police…however, our store manager is homosexual.” Read More

Some older Japanese women wear their school uniforms well after they’ve graduated high school in an attempt to make themselves look younger. After all, nothing screams youthful innocence in Japan like a sailor outfit. Eventually, however, everyone reaches an age where “youthful innocence” is better read as “pitiful desperation.”

But if you adults out there are still looking for an excuse to strut about in your old high school uniform, we have news for you: Ramen Shop Takanashi in Yokohama offers free ramen to customers over 30 who enter the shop wearing a schoolgirl outfit. Yes, even men. Read More
