~ More Fun and Weird Japanese Products ~

I was reading The Beading Gem and just fell in love with these cute bejeweled chopsticks Pearl wrote about. They are retractable too!

These chopsticks are sold at Japan Trend Shop, which I wrote about previously. So, I looked around again and found some more cool and/or funny stuff! First, here's something for your cup-of-noodles, the cupman! Here's the description: "This is one of those fun, cool products that only Japan can make. From designer Akira Mabuchi, theCupmen fits snugly onto the lid of your pot of instant noodles. Not only does he keep the flap closed while the noodles are heating up, he also changes color to white as the temperature of the paper rises, letting you know three minutes have elapsed. Waiting for your noodles to be ready has never been so fun". I love it, but it's a $58 for 3 and it's $16 for shipping! If I have much money to buy stuff like this, I wouldn't be eating cup-of-noodles.

I also love this Zojirushi Zutto rice cooker! This will look awesome in any modern kitchen! It's cheaper on Amazon though.

This one is weird! From the website: "The Beauty Voice Trainer helps give you the dulcet voice you know you've always wanted, in just five minutes a day. The system works in three ways: without training, the human throat is restricted. The specially designed mouthpiece positions the tongue to open the voice passage, allowing a much stronger sound." Really???

This one is weird too.... a beauty bottom cushion: "Say “sayonara” to secretary spread, the Beauty Bottom Cushion from Cogit promises to maintain and encourage a shapely bum while you work. Sound too good to be true? This chair cushion works by guaranteeing correct posture, properly aligning your pelvis and spine, which in turn ensures that your bottom muscles become, and stay, taut enough to bounce a 100 yen coin off of. " I wouldn't mind trying it though.

This one is funny. A Tokyo hairstyle wig for men!

Of course, they have one for women too.

This one is pretty cool though. It's a paper cherry blossom tree! Add "magic water" and it'll bloom within a couple of hours and last for about a month!

Ok, I don't know who wants this. It doesn't sound appealing to me at all. It turns your bath water into "Honey": "Honey Bath Gel turns your bath water to a thick, sensual collagen-infused gel just minutes after adding it! With seven colors available, match the flavor to your mood and relax in the tub on your own, or (even better!) with someone special. " Weird!

Which one do you think is the weirdest?

Thanks for the mention. That Japanese store is really cool for so many neat items. One of my favorites is the Cupmen.
