I wonder where that picture is from. I've been searching for single cans of Dry Black for ages.

I've eaten at a First Kitchen/Wendy's combined store near Roppongi and it was way better than a normal stateside Wendy's. Hopefully this will be the model going forward.

@kitzrow Ichiro has had a couple of weeks on the injured list, but nothing requiring surgery or major medical time off. An occasional sore muscle or random ulcer.

Posted in: 'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart to stand down See in context

When I studied abroad in Japan back in '03, I had a friend who watched episodes on her PC. After a couple of episodes, I told her "I kinda liked that Kilborn guy better."

Years later, I've learned the errors of my ways. Hope Mr. Stewart gets to enjoy his time with family.

Posted in: KitKat Mail See in context

How are you supposed to mail a bar of chocolate?

They have special kit kat boxes at post offices where you write the address and a message for the recipient on the outside of the box. Last year they had mini daruma dolls with the kit kat bar and the year before was sakura themed, I believe.

TBS's site had a short video of the deceased boar. The markings and fur certainly make it look like a boar.

Glad to see a number of places in western Japan. Lived for a year outside of Matsuyama an it's a nice balance between big city and relaxed city by the inland sea.

Posted in: Which places in Japan do you think are overrated as tourist attractions? See in context

A couple folks have mentioned Shikoku as a good place to go and I support that thought, especially if you can get a car to go to some remote places.
