Sea urchin cream soup

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

I know after you see this you’ll be rushing down to the local coop to grab as much of this as you can! How does it taste you ask? Well… I haven’t tried it… but I did take a picture of it. This is the first time I’ve seen this and it’s pretty different. I’ve had sea urchin sushi (not very good) and I can just imagine what creamy sea urchin soup tastes like (bleh!)..

Sea urchin soup

Not sure what a sea urchin is? Here’s a brief explanation. They’re tiny sea creatures in the shape of a ball with 1-3cm spines sticking out but they’re not that sharp. I’ve eaten it on sushi and it looks disgusting to me… brown ish… with a taste that I don’t care for. (more…)

Old School Legend of Zelda Commercial

Monday, September 9th, 2013

I was check out YouTube today and found an awesome commercial for the Legend of Zelda on the Super Famicom. First I watched the video and felt joy. Second I sat in front of my computer for about 30 seconds. Third I went “WTF is a Super Famicom?” Fourth I Googled it and found out that it’s basically the same thing as the Super NES aka Super Nintendo. Nice!

Here’s the video:

Here’s some more info on wtf a Super Famicom is.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System or Super NES (also called SNESa and Super Nintendo) was a 16-bit video game console released by Nintendo in North America, Europe, Australasia, and Brazil between 1990 and 1993. In Japan and Southeast Asia, the system is called the Super Family Computer, Super Famicom (スーパーファミコン, Sūpā Famikon), or SFC for short. In South Korea, it is known as the Super Comboy and was distributed by Hyundai Electronics. Although each version is essentially the same, several forms of regional lockout prevent direct compatibility.

Snail Facial for $250 USD? Would you do it?

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Sometimes I think things in Japan start normal or a bit boring. To remedy this feeling I just wait about a week and something cool, exciting, or different comes up in the news or down the street. Right now super protein packed slime is be slathered all over somebody’s face by slow crawling critters. It could be happening right now! As you read this! I’ve heard prices range from $100 USD to about $250 USD. Could this be the #1 anti aging solution? Could this be the key to reducing wrinkles? I will be sticking to green tea, a healthy diet, and avoiding over exposure to the sun instead. Imagine how much antioxidant-rich green tea $100 could buy. Or even aloe vera plants that you could slime all over your face instead. But back to the snails, would you do this?

Beer Bath Action

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Hakone Kowakien Yunessun in Hakone Japan is offering just about every man’s dream, a kick ass beer bath! Until until December 31 you hit up the spa and enjoy a relaxing bath in a beer mug shaped tub full of beer. I recommend not asking for Miller Lite since it’s an import here and can be pretty pricey. The Yunessun also offers baths of coffee, tea, wine and Japanese sake.

Hakone, Japan is considered the most popular Onsen (aka Hot Springs) resort areas in Japan, and Yunessun takes full advantage of the abundance of high quality hot springs in Hakone. Here’s how you get there!
