I was surprised to discover recently that Pipo kun, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police mascot, comes in many generations. Normally he’s the youthful character with open mouth and clothed only in a belt and shoulder strap (center image). But as I discovered on a rare visit to Roppongi in the evening hours, he can also be seen as a baby with a bottle, a girl, a housewife, a salaryman, grandma and grandpa with a cane. I am not sure how much protection all these characters offer, but I guess they are cute.
A mouth-watering website offers online dining at a Yakiniku restaurant. The sounds of the meat grilling, the hungry diner’s open mouth, the interaction where the viewer uses chopsticks to lift up the meat, and even the paper apron to protect your keyboard, they are all magnificent.
And if the online meat makes you thirsty, you can always head to the online bar, with music and small snacks.
