Drinks that were drunk

Seasonal drinks, all kinds of local branding, this is something that Japanese people, and people that visit Japan love. I got sucked in from my first days and now check the changing of the season with whatever drinks that are on offer.

Pepsi basically makes a unique drink bi-annually, but is that a good thing?

It’s Pepsi, but it had a slightly different aftertaste. Spicer would be appropriate since that is relative.

At the same time they came out with the J-cola midnight, which they recommended you drink after you take an evening bath instead of your Japanese tea.

This still had caffeine in it, so if you were planning on going to bed, plan on at least staying up…until midnight.

 

You don’t need to come up with a new flavor to reel people in. When Coke branded their bottles with people’s names, sales went way up. Here they also have the locally branded version, hoping that you will feel the need to travel all over Japan to complete your collection.

It tasted like coke, but from Nagoya.

NNJ 27: Kiss Nanpa Crow Yakuza

Some super scientific survey results, a Nanpa school that nobody should go to, which is all of them. We meet a crow and learn about the law. A man fakes his death and he learns about the law and finally a Yakuza clearly doesn’t understand the law.

What’s happening in PuroLand next month, and why.

The creepy dude report, in a serious way, and then in a not so serious way.

A quit follow up on some stories that refuse to die.

Then a big change in cow rights.

Tired of Pokemon Go?

Pokemon Go tech to get weirdos to come closer to jerking it in public.

NNJ 23: Shoes, Sumo, Scandal and Society

A ninja, who never passed ninja class because he got way too focused on something else. A follow-up on the Sumo Vs Ovaries. Giant corporations trying not to kill their employees. The Finance Minister of Japan being a 5 year who has discovered his wee wee and a moral quandary of belief. There’s a lot there!

NNJ 21: Sushi Chocolate Allergy

Allergies plague Japan, but the source is one of those unintended consequences of a bygone time.

YouTubers don’t get arrested, but they sure as hell could have.

Chocolate, they said it makes you smarter, but it didn’t make them smart enough to get the science right.
