    Batteries – GET THEM AT DAISO!!! I use Daiso for EVERYTHING and I don’t even live in Japan! (I live near SF, CA, and there’s one down here). I get all my stationary-type things, snacks, batteries, tea (leaf and bag), gloves, seasonal items (at Christmas, I went down there and got a bunch of cool Christmas decorations for like $5), anything! I don’t know if you live near a Daiso, but if you do, switch to buying your batteries there! They are the same quality as anything else you can find.

    Wow, this is great! I’ve heard that American cereals are hard to find in grocery stores there. I’m glad I can still have frosted flakes in the morning. XD;

    Razor blades are super expensive everywhere…. But getting some of the better ones in Japan is even harder.

    recently bought a 500g block of NZ red cheddar at an import store for 1050yen. It was worth it, since a smaller block of about 150g can be as much as 500yen. I love good cheddar!

    Sure he can do what he wants and he’s doing it, duh! And I can say what I want and you can mind everyone’s business like you want. Ha!

    Wreck himself? He’s hardly wrecking himself you self-satisfied twat, and even if he was, it’s his body and he can do what he wants with it.

    Mind my own business as opposed to you who’ll not say anything and just let him continue to wreck himself by not caring!? ok

    I think it is absolutely disgusting how westernized the Japanese diet has become. As recently as 60-70 years ago, you would not have found more than half of the food in Japanese stores that you have there. America is making Japan unhealthy.

    wow the prices really weren’t that high, or higher than it is here in the us.
    -though now that the dollar is extremely weak…only about 80-85 yen per dollar

    According to the comments section a few posters think
    noodles = worms
    bonito flakes = bugs

    Not sure how you could come to that conclusion

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.-Psalms 9:17

    JESUS is the ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN John 14:6

    But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers,
    fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in
    the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death
    Revelation 21:8

    In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
    -2 Thessalonians 1:8

    Falun Dafa (or Falun Gong) is a Great Buddha Law of the Universe, a cultivation system based on the principles of the Universe:

    真 Truthfulness
    善 Compassion
    忍 Forbearance

    Since 1999 it has been brutally persecuted by the CCP in China. People are being killed, tortured, put into concentration camps, raped and have organs harvested from live people. More than 3500 Falun Gong practitioners have died in the past 13 years, tens of thousands are tortured in labor camps.

    Okonomiyaki and jeon both have similar cooking styles in that they are both “pan-fried.” But they have different ingredients.
    Basic Okonomiyaki – cabbage, flour, water, egg, nagaimo (usually smothered in sweet, black sauce, mayonnaise, and dried fish flakes)
    Bindaetteok – mung bean, egg, kimchi
    I would imagine that they wouldn’t taste the same but I’ve never had bindaetteok so, sorry. :(
