The Monster Hunter game was available, but the limited edition Monster Hunter PSP was sold out within minutes. We didn't get one though. :(
We do have ONE left from the pre-order! They are going for over 25000 yen on the second market already!
Well, the Year of the Rabbit is coming, so the best way to celebrate is a Miffy solid gold calendar from Ginza Tanaka (expert jewelry maker who also provides ridiculously expensive goods like the World's Most Expensive Christmas Tree, 24 Karat Gold Swimwear, Platinum Gundam to name a few)
The calendar is made of 6 kilograms of gold and sells for an incredible 55 million yen!!!!- (about $660,000 USD) let's hope the Year of the Rabbit means financial success!

Burger King will serve the "NY Pizza Burger" from December 8th through Jan 11th.
Born in 1990, Hamamatsu city, Providence of Shizuoka.
He was on a TV show "Street Fighters" in 2008 with his band called "Kobayashi Taro & Masakari KatsuiDers", and got the 1st award of the contest "Street Fighter High School Generation Fes. '08" of the show。
He released his first album "Orkonpood" on Jan 13th, 2010, starting his solo career.
He is very popular in Japan and plays many of the large festivals. One of his songs from Orkonpod is the theme song for a popular TV drama series.
The sound is strongly influenced by grunge music, and I was impressed by the power of his voice and the songs can touch one's heart, whether it be hard rock or a slow vocal.
My best from 1st album "Orkonpood"
It is the "Dragusuta"
Here is a slow song- "Misako Chan".
Used for the TV Drama series. Good song. I love this.
I cannot wait for more albums and hope to see him live one day!
