Well, didn't find any robot girls in Shinjuku last night but stumbled upon something even more disturbing.  Was sitting in a bar called KirinCity: http://www.kirincity.co.jp/ 

They are very particular about preparing their beers, usually they take at least 4 minutes to pour each one always getting just the correct (in their mind) of head on the glass.

So looking through the menu they had a new item...TOMATO BEER.... 

I couldn't find it from Kirin's website, but it seems Asahi has it in a can:

Singapore is weird too

lol.  The low birthrate is a very touchy subject now.  The government has been actively growing the population by immigration, mostly from the China mainland but now there is a growing backlash among a lot of the populist.  Both blaming the gov't for the huge population growth as well as favoring policies that make it difficult for the average citizen to be able to support and afford children.

This kind of bahavior is being recorded all the time:

Hello Kitty-Sadako.

You know, her of The Ring. From a new remake where she creeps OUT OF THE INTERNET.
