It seems like the Japanese have a never-ending supply of strange and quirky interests to amuse us westerners. Among them: an unquentiable need to watch completely unintelligible cartoons (pokemon anyone?), mobs of crazy school girls in uniforms chasing after pseudo celebrities, dog poo charm bracelets, and a hankering for bizarre TV shows that would make Fear Factor look like the Golden Girls. Obviously, Japan is an American sightseer’s vacation come true.

OUCH. Why would someone ever advertise that medication on their front window? Either that is something you NEVER want to take … or else the Japanese have painful afflictions that the rest of the civilized world has luckily escaped.

    That does look exceedingly painful.

    Wait a second… dog poo charm bracelets?

    The Japanese have these dog poo charms that they put on their cell phones. Apparently it’s for good luck. I’ll post some more information over the next few days …

    Actually, that would be China, not Japan.
