Hmmm... Must do some empirical testing to see if I can replicate their results.

Talking crazy and Japan, does anyone know what this sign is supposed to mean. I took the photo in 2012 in Suzuka in our hotel. It was taken in the communal area, next to the vending machine, laundry, lounge etc.

Were there masage chairs? That is what it looks like to me. My boys and their friends have great fun with them :eek: when we go to Joshin. Not giving any further details but it is in a shop and I completeley disown them at the time.

Might have been a massage chair around, but like i said it was a communal area. Still got me guessing.

Now the actual reason I opened this thread (imagine my surprise!!) was to post this .......

Does anyone know if Santa stops into Japan on his way to Australia because I so want to find this in my stocking on Christmas morning

That chocolate slice thing is just wrong!!

As a lover of chocolate (not that I've actually eaten any in MONTHS!) chocolate in almost any form is good...but if you were going to make a sandwich then use Nutella. A slice of that on bread would be so dry!

If you like chocolate ....... I knocked these up today Cherry Ripe Macaroons with 70% cocoa chocolate . There is chocolate on the bottoms also.

They look like these but without the condensed milk. Funny how similar things show up at the same time in different places. Will now be looking for condensed milk but could just as easily make them without.

Speaking of chocolates, I think Japanese cheap chocolates are the best, I mean Japanese 100 Yen to 200 Yen chocolates. Whenever I flew between Australia and Japan, I used to buy luxury chocolates like Godiva for my family at the international airports, but they are not that tasty, they are just expensive:p.

I posted this in a thread a few years back, but its worthy of another posting here... only in Japan do they not get anyone to proof read the English translation.
I stayed here one year in Hakuba

Pretty much everywhere in the world if you calculate your BMI(body mass index), the overweight range starts at 25, and obese starts at 30.

In Japan, however, overweight starts at 23, and obese at 25!!!! So if you're 180cm, and 81kg in Japan, you're obese!!! LOL

Or for example, if you're 160cm and 64kg, you're obese!!!
