All four stars of Sex & the City II have arrived in Tokyo for the premiere tomorrow. Love how they are decked out! And love how they are recognizing the importance of fashion-obsessed Japanese as their fan base.
Note: I’ll be attending the movie without the husband, who seems confused about the point of the movie. It’s about friendship, looking good, and ladies! Plus there are Arabs! I hope the sister-in-law can come with me!
Wow! That’s a lot of heavily made-up, teen male angst! The video is entitled “I hate you Josh. I’m a teen werewolf.” It includes memorable lines like, “I don’t suck Daffy Duck’s dick.”
Thanks to all my lovely readers who commented about the 200,000th page view. I will definitely bring more street fashion, more sneaky photos, and of course more ikemen. But, no doubt, along the way, I will also include the many random and strange things I see in Tokyo and online. Please feel free to send any relevant stories and images that you think I should post!
It’s humbling and astonishing that this blog will reach 200,000 page views this weekend. I must thank my super attentive readers who have filled in all of my pop culture gaps, sent in blog tips that I have shamelessly re-used, and otherwise encouraged this strange endeavor. Diary, document, adventure, and communication, Tokyo Moe has become much more than I expected.
Is there more of something that you’d like to see in the future?
OMG! This barely legal (age 20) Japanese tennis player Nishikori Kei made it to the second round of the French Open before losing to third seed Novak Djokovic. I thought this image was the most suggestive. Do you have a favorite tennis player?
After a campaign promising an “equal relationship” with the US and then nearly a year of delays, Japan’s prime minister Hatoyama announced he will now adhere to an old agreement to relocate the US Marine base within Okinawa. There’s a lot of excuses about the dangers of North Korea, but in the end, it seems clear that Hatoyama is simply Hilary’s bitch.
The husband thinks this expression “Hillary’s bitch” is too redolent of prison sex. But I am just calling it like I see it. Poor occupied Japan and its spineless leaders. At least it’s nice to think that the tyrant top is mistress Hillary.
Have you heard of Renho? She’s a single-name DPJ politician in charge of rooting out wasteful spending. Not only does she have a single name, she always wears crisp white suits! Plus, she’s Taiwanese, a former news anchor, and graduate of a very upper class university. In the photo above, she’s campaigning in front of Nakano’s JR station for our recent local, ward election. Wish I had seen her in person!!
I don’t fully understand this Japanese news story, but charming and gorgeous Haruna Ai (はるな愛), Japan’s most famous transsexual, will be playing a man in a new role. That’s something to look forward to! I am not sure she’s completely convincing as a biological male, but she is pretty!
Undefeated in two weeks, Hakuho won the tournament two days early. He is celebrating by holding up some lucky “tai” fish given by a wealthy admirer. I would have a big smile, too, if someone gave me two giant expensive fish! Hakuho is adorable!!
So are you preparing yourself for this cinematic soft candy? I think of the four ladies as my ara-fi (アラフィ, around 50 years old) senpai. I am of course curious about the ladies’ encounters with Arab men and camels. I love how it’s opening quickly in Tokyo. Photo taken in Ginza.
Yes, it seems summer will finally arrive. Sony is quick to introduce Japan’s World Cup players in Ginza. Who is that man? I am expecting a lot of new idols ^^
