Just Tokyo Things

I had a brief layover in Tokyo earlier this month. Here are some quirky things I picked up when I went out shopping.


Banana flavored chu-hi. I never knew the world had a need for alcoholic banana soda, but I have seen the light.


Collagen treatment masks with faces drawn on them are a thing. This one makes the user resemble a daruma.


I needed some cotton buds, and I also needed my fortune told. So I picked up these o-mikuji cotton buds. O-mikuji are blessings and curses you draw from a box. Or in my bathroom, from a container of cotton buds.


Like so. Chotto shock ya omahen ga!? (I'm not totally sure what that means, but I think it may be right.)
