MMMMM, Carrots!

Mike The Hamster knows that there’s nothing better than cuddling under the blanket with a nice tasty carrot.

(Tastefully Offensive.)

Does ANYONE Know…

….what in THE WORLD is going on here??

Can’t Tell Who Is Using Who Here

This one’s called “A Man And His Cat.” Usually the Cat takes advantage of the Hoomin; think it’s about 50-50 here, no?

output_Oa1AHkThis weeks edition of TGIF! comes all the way from The Big J/Bun Island AKA Disapproval Island, which we have featured several times before. “I recently had the pleasure of visiting Okunoshima Island (aka Bunny Island!) It’s a far trek from where I am staying in Osaka (3 trains and a ferry ride, 3 hours each way) but totally worth it to see an island filled with happy, hoppy, floppy bunnies. This little guy jumped up to sit next to me on a bench. I got some cute pictures of him nom nomming away on bunny treats. I hope you can feature him on a Bunday* in Nosevember! Your fan, -Julie A.”

[*Note: Couldn’t wait ’til Bunday. The GIF opportunity was too good to pass up. -Ed.]

You Don’t HAVE To Understand It- Just GO With It

So…..I took the title of this video and ran it thru Google Translate. Result? “[Ōkunoshima] I tried to sleep on the ground were plated the bait in the body!”

That about sums it up. I guess. So what we have here…is a guy wearing a pink Bunny Suit and yellow New Balance running shoes- and he’s covered in Buns.

Why does this not surprise me? (Speakers up.)

KK Raises Its Halloween Game In The Big J

3img03No offense to our perennial fave Mister Donut, but Mr. Krispy Kreme has flat out FLOORED IT for Halloween in The Big J. (At this point, we should mention that the blog I’ll Make It Myself and the Twitter account for Things From Japan were the inspiration for this post.)

Not sure what’s going on here, but as with all Big J posts, that hardly matters.

Did someone say videos? Oh yes. Here are the first four in a series- they have nine total. Who doesn’t like dancing Pumpkin and Frankenstein donuts?




Fresh From The Big J….

Gotta admit, “Neko Atsume” has flown under the Big J radar as far as I’m concerned. It seems that this is a cat game you play on your mobile phone. OK, I get it. And since Japan is obsessed with cats, naturally you have to make…air fresheners with the kitteh on them. Sure, why not?

UPDATE 2:30pm PT: For those who are searching for these on the iTunes App Store, maybe this will help.


Four distinct scents for you: “Gentle Jasmine, Cozy Berry, Relaxing Floral, and Refreshing Shampoo.”

Peel off the sticky decal and put them anywhere that needs a little “freshening.”

The car dashboard, for example.

Or at work.

The kitteh rotates around the freshener, too.

(Andrew Y. saw it on RN24. If you wanna gaze at some fantastic Big J advertising, here they are.)

‘Tocktober USB Disney Butts!

Just plug Winnie The Pooh, Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck into the outlet, and then add your USB charging cord.

RN24 says they’re going for “1,800 yen (US$16.50), and according to the Hamee site are scheduled to ship out in early October.” Buy ’em now!

That store ad looks great. I like how they! Put! Exclamation! Points! After! Every! Word! Practically!
