my wife doesn't polish my shoes anymore...

shoepolisher.jpg

japanese wives used to polish their husband's shoes every morning. wake up early, cook breakfast. kneel with thumb, index and middle fingers then greet "itte rasshai mase =have a good day"with honor.

now, so many liveral women?

everything is machine these days. irobot cleans room, washing machine washes dishes, laundry machine does laundry....

just put 100 yen, you will get shiny beaufitul shoes in 2 minutes.

no meed wife anymore, huh?

Driving school

To get a driver's license is so easy in us.
but are they really good at driving?

In japan, people normally go to driving school to learn traffic rules, skill of driving. 26 hours for writing classes, 31 hours for driving classes. Usually it takes more than one month to finish the course, and 200,000 - 300,000 yen(approx.$1800-2600)!!!

If you're not smart enough to pass the writing test, have no sense of driving, you'd need to continue to attend the class.....

In general, the cost is the same number of the age.
If you're 20 year old, the cost would be 200,000 yen ($1800).
If you're 60 year old, the cost would be 600,000 yen ($5200)?????

Touch & Go !

suika.JPG suika2.JPG

I'm not talking about football.
As you know, Japanese public tranportation system is great. Most of people use it everyday, so it has to be convenient, right?

Once you buy a card "Suica" or "Pasmo" and charge(put money)it, you don't need your wallet. All you need is just touch the machine then go ! Take a train, get a bottle of water and some snacks through this card.

Get a line to buy a train ticket? forget about it.
Many small coins in your pocket? no need those anymore.

keep your face small

kogaomask2.JPG

jason mask !!

nonono! kogao sauna mask: ko=small, gao=face sauna mask

once you put this mask to your face, rubber mask lifts your face up and infrared radiation works for getting sweat inside.

it seems like it's good for flabby face and swallen face after too much drinking.

shape up and slim up you face!
wanna be a model now?

cup noodle refillable

cupnoodle.jpg

japanese food company "nissin foods" will sell refillable instant cup noodle. what's new? cup will be reusable, just refile noodle. packages are used be disposable, their concept is from that enviromental concern.

but, i believe their original cupnoodle concept was convenient anytime anywhere eating, just need boiled water. refillable reusable cup sounds very eco, however you have to carry the cup whenever you want to eat. it's not convenient at all !!!
