Strange Japan

By 18th February 2011 August 27th, 2013 Uncategorized

WESTERN media often portrays what is ‘normal’ in Japan as slightly ‘odd’ or perhaps even ‘weird’. Sure, there are some crazy fashion trends and oddball shows on TV, but generally there isn’t anything that strange in Japan. Unless you consider Kit-Kats with flavours such as rock melon, grilled corn, vegetable juice, sports drink, soy sauce or wasabi weird. Or, small caramel candies that are flavoured like jingisukan (BBQ Lamb) to be strange. If these unique snacks are appealing to your sense of adventure, then you can find some of these at souvenir stores in town.
