Apparently the old adage that sex sells even applies to beef noodle restaurants.
You’ll never be bored in the bedroom with so many designs to choose from.
Akihabara is considered by many to be a holy land of otaku culture, and with good reason. From anime to electronics to maid cafes, there’s not much you can’t find here. You can even pay someone to clean your ears! Which, to this writer, sounds absolutely horrifying. The idea of a total stranger getting inside my ear canal and scraping out all the gunk is both gross and horrifying, mainly because I can’t stop imagining the ear cleaner slipping and driving the ear-pick deep into my brain.
And that’s probably exactly why the RocketNews24 editors chose me to try it out! If you’ve ever wanted to have a young woman lay your head in her lap and then scrape the wax out of your ears, here’s your chance to see what it’s like.
Trust your mum when she tells you not to place too much trust in what you see on the Internet. Especially when it comes to photos of cute girls. Who knows, she may be a beautiful boy. Or even, a middle-aged man.
Do you see where this is going yet? Surprise surprise, these sweet-looking Lolita twins are in fact a middle-aged Japanese man in disguise (both are played by the same man), and that’s not all he has up his sleeve! More pictures after the jump!
Business district by day, at night Akasaka in Tokyo transforms into an area of dazzling nightlife, a hip and happening place where the local execs can easily spend their hefty paychecks. But among the trendy neon-lit clubs, there’s one café that doesn’t quite fit in: The Android Idol Caffe.
When it comes to Japan, Akihabara is one place you’ll find on almost every tourist’s map. The name alone immediately brings to mind everything from games, manga, anime, figurines and AKB48 to Gundam, computers and electronics. Still one thing stands out as being particularly iconic: maid cafes.
Most visitors to Tokyo have stopped by one of these cafes at least once, and even if you haven’t, you’re probably familiar with the concept: cute, young women in fluffy “maid” skirts serving drinks and food while giggling with customers and, often, putting on shows. But have you wondered where these cafes came from? Read More
When I was a lad, school operated on a system of strict rules and severe punishments rather than incentives and reward. Every Friday afternoon, the student with the lowest test scores would be plunged into a deep pit filled with spiders, stinging nettles and dog poo as the trapdoor below his chair sprang open; the soft, wet thud his body made as it came into contact with the mounds of muck marking the end of another week at Catholic school.
But not this generation! One young teacher in China has shown that the prospect of reward really can have a motivating effect on students’ performance as she set them an inspired challenge: “Come out on top in the next test and I’ll wear a maid outfit.”
