One of my favourite shops in Japan is a place called Book-Off - I'm sure I've mentioned this before. They sell second-hand manga, anime DVDs/Bluray, CDs, video games, trading cards... You name it, they have it. Still, I was surprised to find these in the Ikebukuro Sunshine City Book-Off...

|Terrible picture quality, I know|
Seems that, in Ikebukuro, there's a company that runs a service whereby a truck will deliver gasoline to your house. And plays nursery rhyme tunes to attract customers.
Next, here's something that was sold at the local McDonalds for a while.
|Was not nearly as good as the name suggested.|
|This stuff was delicious~~~|
|Also, self-serve FRESH GARLIC? YES PLEASE!|
|Mmmmm, cake sand...|
|Definitely a good way to sell tissues, I think|
|30 minutes late...|
It's an interesting holiday - typically, rich grandparents will buy a set of dolls when their children have their first daughter. The dolls are to be up the day of the festival, every year, and must be taken down before the day is over, else the daughter suffer the curse of a late marriage. Yup, that's Japan.
