variety goods store Village Vanguard

Famous for its weirdness, loved for its uniqueness..yes we’re talking about novelty goods/ book store, Village Vanguard. Founded in 1986 in the town were JWS’ headquarters are located;Nagoya.

Ever wondered what beef flavored chewing gum tastes like? Are you a romantic who loves candlelight….what about some sushi shaped candles?


What do you give to a friend who has everything, well in my case I was presented with a Doo Doo head mask…yes a turd shaped mask…I still don’t know whether to be insulted or …. , still I can’t wait for Halloween to start!

They might form a perfect match  with these ears…


And to round of the look what about this awesome kurukuru maki (around and around) ring.

Truly special and a bit disturbing is this t-shirt with a print of the Japanese com(ugh ugh)edian; Egachan, famous for walking around half naked and being gross. (yeah it’s Japanese entertainment!). Worn in a conventional way it’s just a Tee….but when you pull the bottom of the shirt over your head, you become Egachan! Is this the start of a new trend?

Ronaldo in Japan to promote muscle gadget


A sheepish-looking Cristiano Ronaldo was in Tokyo on Tuesday promoting an electric muscle stimulation machine, a year after he visited to push a smile-enhancing gadget that looked a little like a boomerang.71EqthNxhwL._SL1500_

The 30-year-old Real Madrid star emerged onto a Tokyo stage bathed in white smoke and blinding light. Then he just stood there for a while, looking uncomfortable, until he was joined by his sponsor and a translator.

A slick video played on overhead screens showed Ronaldo’s well-toned form with the electric muscle toner attached to his torso. The company behind the device claims it is the easy way to achieve that desirable washboard look.

Tuesday’s PR event came a year after the Portuguese player was mocked on social media for advertising a face exerciser that users were supposed to grip between their teeth as they nodded their heads to flap its extended arms.


Despite numerous attempts by photographers and by TV talkshow hosts to make him do so, the well-paid superstar refused to put the device in his mouth.
