And apparently provide some new filthy comedy.
Have you heard about this Japanese TV program, called “Kitanachelin”?! It’s a program that showcases neighborhood restaurants that have great food and are dirty looking. The title combines the word “kitainai” or dirty with an abbreviated version of Michelin, as in the guide to fine dining.
We stumbled into this ramen shop in Sangenjaya using Tabelog. Only when we had ordered did I recognize the proud trophy on the counter. I wonder when they won the coveted prize: the food was OK but not great, and the place merely untidy rather than over-the-top filthy.
This ad is wrong in so many ways. Why is muscle mary pushing tobacco? Why is he white? Why, oh why, is he wearing daisy dukes? In some of the ads they show him only from the shoulders up. The full view is filthy in every way! Thanks, Tokyo Matt, for submitting this image for the Tokyo Moe readers.
I just learned today that each Donki carries different merchandise. The one near Kabukicho seems heavily into fetishes. I love the many female fetish outfits: school girl (many uniform types), ball gown, maid, nurse, police woman. (For those outside Japan, Donki is the abbreviation for Don Quixote, a chain of low priced merchandise packed so densely it’s hard not to imagine the imminent fire hazard of even a short visit). It’s like the poor man’s Isetan or Takashimaya for teens.
The store makes you feel filthy for just looking. And below, a men’s thong with an extremely inappropriate name that does not match the visual. WTF?
Is Grindr popular where you live? It seems like every gay Tokyo-ite has rushed to get an iPhone so they can use Grindr! It allows you to chat and cruise guys who are near you, wherever you are. OMG! It’s filthy. My excuse is that I can practice reading and writing Japanese.
