NHK Blends presents a wonderfully mellowed-out version of AC/DC’s 1980 rock classic Back in Black, performed on traditional Japanese instruments, including the shime-daiko, shakuhachi, and koto with a few owl calls thrown in for good measure.
In this skit from the Japanese variety show Gaki Tsuka, the cast dress up as Power Ranger-style heroes. But they each have to wear different colored costumes purely by chance. It gets hilarious, then boring, then annoying, and back again. It’s the human equivalent of MasterMind.
Designer Michael “DinoMike” Buxton combines two iconic Japanese images, as Gojira himself stomps through the Great Wave off Kanagawa. Available on t-shirts, notebooks, wall art, phone cases, tote bags, throw pillows, and even an awesome duvet cover for your bed.
We’re currently in Tokyo for a few days, so there’s no better time to feature this hilarious bit of old Japanese TV in which they launched a series of car and truck tires down a ski ramp to see how far they would fly. We’re pretty sure this is how Katamari Damacy started.
