It looks like Japan just introduced a 48 piece Chicken McNugget meal. And of course it comes in a bucket.
The offer is for a limited time only. It’s available only in Niigata Prefecture and part of a promotional tie-up with the the newly launched pop group NGT48, the Niigata-based spin-off of the massively popular idol unit AKB48. – Kotaku
But where is the 1 litre tub of honey mustard dipping sauce?
I can’t believe how useful Google Maps was on our trip to Japan. It made navigating the cities, finding your way to the closest subway station and figuring out which trains and buses to take a complete breeze!
It’s not often when technology surpasses my expectations, but a cell phone with a data sim card and Google Maps was invaluable in making our trip so much better and stress free. Don’t travel Japan without it :D
Please sit back while I tell you a tale of how you should never be like me at the airport. It is a tale of woe and heartbreak, a tale of curses mumbled under the breath and of total meltdowns in arrival terminals. It is my constant companion whenever I arrive at the airport – my own personal freak out.
Well we’re just about to depart for another Japan adventure. I’m excited to see what’s changed since we were there 4 years ago. And I’m especially excited to sink my teeth into some sweet tonkatsu and a heaping bowl of ramen :D
I’ll keep you updated as best I can!
Interesting and short little documentary on the responsibilities that Japanese children face when getting to and from school. Also, I’ve watched the “My first errand” show before, so now I’m happy to know what it actually was. For the whole time I was wondering what these little kids were doing. I thought they had run away from home with a camera man :)
It’s seems like a long way to go just for the “development of mellowness”, but Suntory is going to be sending some of their whiskey to the International Space station. They hope that the microgravity environment will aid in the mellowing. While I think it be great to try a dram of the stuff when it gets back in several years, I have a feeling it would cost a bit more than my current whisky budget allows :D
Here is the full news release.
