Japan Central!

Is there something going on in Japan that you just found out about? Just as the forum section states, whether it’s news, music, pop idols, something weird, the latest craze, or anything else about the Japanese lifestyle… this is the right place to post! There never seems to be an end to it all as we know! :no_mouth::smile:
