Sanitary Type and Loosely Type

Disposable underwear, now in sanitary type (my preference), and loosely type (for Barry).
In some Japanese stores, there is so much Engrish that you can get double Engrish! Here, "Oh my god, keep love, ok ok, kiss me", is next to a mirror which loves make up more than my darling or "..."
Speaking of mirrors, you can either have the lame mirror, or the one with suckers. Notebooks, like those below, always have opinions to share.
This notebook suggests it might be useful, as long as you use proper sentences.
This memo pad is sure it's useful, but can't quite explain how.
Finally, this notebook has interesting views on France.
My opinion is that we should all focus more on the spirit of whirling.
This apron comes on way too strong, and cries when you remove it.
Today, I was courteous with my time, as I drank from my Sunny Day jar.
This Vinyl Pouch is quite anxious about being purchased, it seems.
Like some people I know, this bag has a lot of opinions and advice, some of which seem to conflict.
Suggested title for the next Bieber hit?
Introducing the new Monotone fad diet: Slow and healthy time eaten out of a mug!
I might stick with the Glit and Brillia mug instead, since it has a tasty production process.
Weekends are great, but don't forget about Saturday.
Luckily, this shirt didn't provide much detail about this type of sport.
Storage can be thoughtful and uplifting.
And, well, I do love my face smoothening rollers. I think Hoho Ago is the best brand I've seen, too!

Dormant Volcanoes and Raw Chicken

We went to see a volcano erupting, but it turned out to just be a little mountain.
The helpful museum told us that the volcano erupted 737 times last year, but only 46 this year, so we were suckers. We went to the grocery store to drown our sorrows.
We couldn't decide between the 2 gallon plastic jug of whiskey, or hotel bread.
We looked for solutions where the fruit gather.
Naturally, we settled on some white mush.
I refreshed myself with the free mask provided by the hotel, which was not fussed with traditional amenities.
And then we went out for some raw chicken, the local specialty.
It tasted like, well, chicken.
Everything was better when we found the world's best Sake/Schochu menu! I had the "horse with a spectacular sweetness of strong", while Barry had the "I will tell you generous climate and nostalgia".
Even the toilet cooperated.
After dinner, we found the world's favourite playground.
Where some stuff was spread, including exciting space.
And some animals were trapped in glass cages.

Festival and Butts

All of these men are wearing loincloths, and here, you can see many many butts.
We went to see the Hakata Yamakasa festival, which involves teams of men parading with heavy colourful floats while getting soaked with water.
Hundreds of years old, this tradition was originally staged to rid the town of epidemics, by spraying everyone with holy water.
The young don't carry the floats, but they get the same outfits.
The very young can wear diapers under their loincloths.
It's fun for the whole family (except women. They can't take part).
In addition to the loincloth/wedgie, you get split-toe boots, a carry-rope, a role-indicating headband, and a clan-denoted wrap-shirt.
Team members take turns bearing the weight of the 1 tonne float with 6 guys on it.
The floatmasters use their red sticks to direct the float carriers based on their headbands.
When your turn is up, you exit underneath all the fun, trying not to be trampled.
You loop your rope around the float to help carry it. When not in use, you conveniently tuck the rope into your loincloth.
You need to be careful to not get knocked out by the posts or the other carriers.
This is all happening at a jogging pace, while buckets of water are thrown at everyone.
In the back, it's more of a duck and push effort.
Back in the 1800s, the floats were taller, but had to be shrunk with the advent of power lines and safety.
