Have a safe and wonderful weekend everyone!! Happy New Year!!
In Japan and other Asian countries, when a person is sick they wear surgeon masks to avoid spreading it, and they also will wear them during seasons of cold to prevent themselves from getting sick.
Most are your average plain surgeon masks in blue or white, however we have found these ones modeled by babies, that are just too cute!
the “hitler” ??
Not sure what to call that lil mustaches besides Hitler one, that could not be what they intended??
Looks like your cat’s favorite food, but….
It is a candle! Thankfully this candle does NOT have a scent, I do not have a cat, but I imagine a cat’s food does not smell good. Japan is random, lol
Too cold to enjoy ice cream?
Enjoy this kawaii ice cream lamp instead!
These special treats have no calories!
It is that time a year again, when Japanese stores create Lucky Bags (Fukubukuro)! Lucky Bags are a grab bag type assortment of merchandise from a brand, reduced 50% or more off retail price. Lucky bags sell out quick, so if you are interested grab some now!

What a cute Miss Santa Misato Katsuragi makes! Amazing detail on the Santa suit!

These cuties never last long and for good reason- they are adorable anime USB drives! A new store at Rinkya Stores-
Anime Super Store will provide us with great updates from the anime world!
The first update from Anime Super Store are four Anime USB drives- Two Evangelion characters, a Macross character and one from Lucky Star!

A Gundam Visa Card available only in Japan—
Japan bank, Sumitomo Mitsui, has released this special edition Gundam Visa!
An annual fee of $38 is all you will pay for this Gundam X Visa collaboration. The card does have other benefits, but that is a bunch of legal jumbo, when really, everyone just wants the Gundam on their card.
Handwarmers are popular to slide in your gloves in Japan to give you some extra warmth during these cold winter months. So if you need them, why not make them a laugh for everyone?
Four kinds available- frilly ladies, leopard, comic bubbles and UK flags!
