Japan limited products part 2 日本限定

Every country has its share of  “limited to this country” products,  this is often  a marketing ploy to work on people’s nationalistic feelings and sometimes doesn’t involve more than a slight color alteration or worse, special packaging…and charge more. However lots  of producers realize that each country has their own set of values and tastes, and therefore develop these products with this single group of consumers in mind, and knowing that these products no matter how popular they can be in one market, they could create a huge loss in another.

A lot of producers have other local companies produce their original product through licensing, and these local producers often like to add their own flavor, which is especially the case in the food and beverage industry (Macha KIT KAT annyone?)

If a company decides that a certain product should only be sold in one country they don’t take the folks in account who would love these products…leaving them empty handed, frustrated and over-paying at various auction sites, often spending way too much money, which in turn leads to months of unpaid rent, eviction, sleeping on the streets and feeding on those cheese cake Kit-Kats and Pokka  kamenrider cola…….

We at JWS, went to through a list of Japan limited products at Amazon Japan and came up with a few examples of what you can get for limited stuff against original prices with an almost pathetic 10% commission…we will look for even cheaper options if you want us to..we just don’t want you to end up on the streets…that’s us, a company that cares!

Ok here we go:

We kick off with this handsome Luminox watch:

For those Apple fans who treat their phone/pad with uttermost care and love to personalize it in a distinguished matter..A spigen aluminum home button in “Japan only” royal blue..cheap as chips for only yen 690,- and we reckon that shipping will set you back just another 2 bucks. (no the 69 yen won’t make us rich, but we hope that you have a million friends who also love to have one..)

Are you Asian and do you also suffer from damaged eyelashes? Well worry no longer Rivitalash has released the revitalizer rush advance Japan mascara, which is a “reborn” product to suit the characteristics of the Japanese. But we all know that the “we Japanese have shorter intestines” is a blatant lie, so we reckon this product would work well with all women of asian decent.

I’ve never been in the army, but I kick butt on the virtual warfields, my weapon of choice: Call of Duty! One of my vices (besides beer, e-cigs, anime, manga, cars, and more beer) are game consoles, and the soon to be released Playstation 4 call of duty: Black ops 3 limited edition 1TB including game is already pre-ordered.

For the wealthy upcoming parents there is this Phil&Teds baby car in “Japan only” pink. It isn’t cheap at yen 94.500 but remember that you can carry 2 kids, so it’s basically only 47.250 yen a kid!

Austrian company AKG will be releasing  a Japan Limited Edition of the populair DJ Style headphone for Yen 9,380 without tax (5%) It’s a proven fact that the colors green, pink and orange enhance the sound quality because they’re the mix of two primary colors,(or did I just make that up?)

If you buy sneakers as a fashion accessory, but prefer the streets of Milano over the uh well the streets,   then these Japan limited Gucci sneakers will suit your Dolce and Gabanna black jeans and black Prada turtle neck sweater outfit. I say absolutely gorgeous, but stay away from the basket ball courts. they are yours to have for yen 7,8758, yes that’s a cool $700…but while you’re reading this you glance at your $500.000 Patek Philippe and just shrug and smile

A little more downscale, but certainly not less extravagant are these Adidas Original SS ENML Pamyu Pamyu sneakers, cute as a camouflage dyed French Bulldog and cheap as a few packs of gum.

Yen 7,580 :

So there you have it, if one product caught your eye, shop around on e-bay or Amazon and check the prices, if you can find them cheaper then good on you, if not ask us for a price estimation, because with the Yen at an all time low, shopping has never been cheaper!

Of course if you’re looking for something else, anything (except mail order brides) we help you track it down, and give you a price estimation….you’re not obliged to buy a thing, until you say you want to. We include all the receipts(product price, shipping cost etc) so you know with 100% certainty that you got the best bang for your buck….

We keep your personal information on a separate not internet connected computer, so you never have to worry about your security and privacy.

Give us a shot, we promise that you won’t regret it.

Kancolle presents Moe battleship girls at TGS 2015..

Much is written about the phenomenon that is Kantai Collection, or Kancolle. The free-to-play online game featuring battleships anthropomorphized as cute girls has spawned an anime, mountains of merchandise, and limitless sexy fanart, cosplay, and doujinshi.

Since Kancolle is still most famous as a game, with over 3 million registered players, it had a strong presence at this year’s Tokyo Game Show at the DMM.com booth. They had an impressive display of detailed figures available, faithfully recreating the 2D moe battleship girls in glorious 3D. And we got photos of some of the best!

If there are any figures you just have to have, then you’re in luck! These figures aren’t just for TGS; they’re all commercially available. However, you’ll have to grind a lot of real life currency to afford them, as most will set you back around 10,000 yen (US$83) apiece. Collecting the entire fleet could end up costing you almost as much as a real-life ship! So for us, and many other attendees, just seeing the collection and getting some close-up photos was enough. Besides, we still have all our in-game girls!

A CD of Buddhist monks reciting sutras is one of Japan’s best selling albums

Man, remember CDs? For a time, they were the best and essentially only way to get your music fix, before digital distribution basically steamrolled CD sales worldwide. Now everybody uses those CD spindles—which once held dozens of CDs containing hundreds of hours of music—to keep their bagels from going stale or whatever.

Unsurprisingly, though, in change-averse Japan, CDs still do a brisk business, although sales are certainly waning and it’s only a matter of time before the Japanese, too, decide to collectively microwave their CD collections once and for all (this being the most fun way to dispose of your CDs). And one interesting side-effect of Japan’s CD business entering its twilight years is that some rather unexpected, and sometimes downright odd, albums have been stealthily cracking the top 10 charts.

For example, this CD containing a soothing collection of Buddhist monks reciting sutras.

Making the CD’s presence on the Oricon Album Ranking Top 10 even more strange is that it’s actually sold in bookstores, not CD shops, as a bonus CD attachment to a short book of sutras. The “CD Book,” Kokoro wo Totonoeru Kouyasan no Okyou CD Book, extols the many virtues and even health benefits of listening to the soothing sounds of sutras (called “okyou” in Japanese) being read aloud by groups of monks, and it looks like Japanese consumers are eating it up—with the book selling over 50,000 copies at time of writing.

The sounds of okyou

The top three beneficial effects of listening to okyou, as listed in the book and testified to in reviews, are:

It calms your nerves

The book recommends popping in the CD at work (presumably into your computer, since, seriously, no one on this earth owns a CD player anymore), any time you’re feeling overwhelmed by nagging bosses, looming deadlines, or the guy next to you that’s always surreptitiously picking his nose at his desk.

More okyou for your listening pleasure

It helps you sleep

Certainly, okyou can have a sort of white noise effect, blending into the background as it helps you to drift off to a restful sleep. It’s kind of like one of those rainforest sounds CDs, except, probably, in this one an occasional, loud gong jolts you awake a few times throughout the night.

It can even improve your physical well-being

Your mileage will probably vary on this one, depending on how much you buy into spiritualism and/or the mind-body connection of listening to music, but the book says listening to okyou can have a soothing effect on the heart and body, relaxing tension in the body and maybe even helping you feel better when you’re ill or heartbroken. There’s no mention of listening to okyou boosting your sexual prowess, unfortunately, but if you want to go ahead and believe that, we’re not going to rain on your parade here.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Amazon offers international shipping, but we can buy and send it to you for a meager 10% commission on the purchase price.
