Furaidochikin Crossing: Weird Stuff

Alright guys. As promised, here’s a picture heavy post to make up for no pictures on the last one. I know how much you guys like the werid stuff posts too! This is stuff from generally walking around but most of it is from the Mega Don Quijote in Shibuya. It’s part grocery store, part souvenir shop, but pretty much ALL weird. It’s awesome. Let’s start off with a bang, shall we? (Might need to warn you with a NSFW tag here…)

Cat 1: Weird stuff

I may or may not have bought this for Ryder.

It’s just pomade.

See, just pomade.

A little more tame title.

Foxy lady in front of an adult store.

Don’t tell me that this isn’t the first thing you want to see in the morning while reading a blog post.

This is not Aunt Jemima, it’s Hyottoko and I felt actual physical pain when I chose not to buy it.

I have a yukata at home with Hyottoko all over it and I LOVE it. I just don’t think America is in a good enough place right now to not attack me over wearing something that looks like it has Aunt Jemima on it. You know what… I might just go get it anyway.

It’s all those people standing in the middle of the road staring at their phones. At least we’re not taking selfies. Oh wait, maybe it’s the drivers who are playing.

I saw an angry anti-Pokemon Go player sign at a cemetery in McKinney once. I took a picture of that too. This sign is polite at least. There are SO MANY Pokemon Go players out here. It makes me feel like I’m normal. Most of the players I saw yesterday were adults my age and older. Ahhhh. Feels good.

Cat 2: Cool Stuff

Heaven. Sensation overload heaven.

This is a picture of one of the displays of mochi/daifuku and the stuff beyond at the Donqui. All the the aisles are very small and packed floor to ceiling with stuff. It’s overwhelming and easy to lose a lot of money here.

Blowfish restaurant.

There was literally fish tanks with blowfish in them on the storefront. I’m pretty sure they are for eating. Eaten as sashimi, the blowfish is extremely difficult to prepare because of the possibility that their poison gland may be punctured and contaminate the food, ending in the consumer’s death.

I can’t wait to eat these.

Sakura (cherry blossom) flavor sends me into a tizzy. Seeing this flavor of kit kat sent me over the moon.

These either!

Have you discovered the purple Japanese sweet potato yet? You have to try them!

Sleeping robot.

This is a robot at the Seoul airport. She is essentially an information kiosk that will speak to you in your language. She will even escort you to where you need to go!

Wonderful and cheap sushi at Genki Sushi. This is the kind of place that ends up with a line that wraps around the corner at lunchtime.

An image taken down the countertop of a rotating sushi bar. I guess they don’t rotate here really. Each person has their own terminal from which to order and the sushi will turn up on the track in front of you. You can only order 3 things at a time so that you don’t overeat or waste anything. Or maybe it’s just cause the tray is slides out on can only carry 3 things at a time.

That’s all for now guys! There have been plenty of people here that I wish I would have taken a picture of. Maybe I will stop being shy and do a weird stuff people edition in the future. Thank you so much for reading.

Love, Furaidochikin.
