I picked this up from the convenience store to try out. Ive seen this character on the Cup Noodle commercials and was compelled to buy it because of the absurd character design.

Living in Japan is great, i get to have many types of Japanese food options everyday, but every so often you get the urge for some good ol' greasy american food. Luckily the pizza chain SBARRO has set up multiple locations here in Tokyo. I have one in the area that i work Kichijoji. The prices are ok for Japanese standards, a slice and a drink 450yen. Can't beat the good old american food court taste!

Cheap otaku options

Growing up i was pritty much a big otaku. I loved comics, anime, manga and power rangers! One way to get your otaku fix is by going to a chain of stores called book off. The majority of its product is manga, taking up a large part of these stores. They also have a huge selection of 105yen manga, that like $1! I was able to pick up the whole X1999 series on sale of 50yen each on s special promo day that i happened to stumble onto. So as a big fan of this series, i scooped up the whole set for only 450yen! sweet deal!
