The Sapporo Yuki Matsuri is held annually in Japan’s Northern Island of Hokkaido. The story of the first “Yuki Matsuri” began in 1950 with six snow statues made from local high school students, drawing in 50 thousand people. Today millions of visitors come every year to see these gigantic snow and ice sculptures that line Odori park, Tsudome and along Susukino. Last year was a record high of 2.36 million visitors. This year the snow festival will be from February 5 – 11, 2014. I’ve been to Sapporo too many times to count, but I have never been able to see these wonderful life-like sculptures. It is definitely on my bucket list.
See how the sculptors are made.
For more information please see Sapporo City’s official yuki matsuri site and Sapporo City’s official visitors site. You will be in absolute awe.

Growing up I always looked forward to going to the Japanese Market in Hawaii. I always had so much fun looking at all the cool japanese toys, pencil cases and erasers. I always left with a Japanese Kodomo Magazine (check out this cool video of a Japanese Kodomo Magazine here) and I usually got one of those candy boxes with a toy in them. Tomoe Ame was and still my favorite. Tomoe Ame, is a chewy orange candy with edible rice paper around it. It always came with a small toy. Today, these boxed candy with a toy are still popular, only today the toys are digital check them out. These are from Bandai, and with a little help from your phone app, these 3-D digital mini projectors are cool and trendy. These Gundam mini projector apparently still comes with candy.
You can order yours here.

February 9, has got TWD fans counting down. With Walking Dead’s 5th Season only days away, we cant help but to get excited about our favorite character, Glenn. Steven Yeun plays Glenn in the AMC The Walking Dead horror drama. I have to say, AMC does a fantastic job not stereotyping his Asian American character. Glenn doesn’t play the typical computer nerd, or the geek, or foreigner with an accent, he’s just a former pizza boy before the world went to hell. In TWD, Glenn and Maggie share a romantic bi-racial relationship. It’s rare to see an Asian male romantically involved and more seldom sexually involved with a girl thats not Asian on American television. Kudos to AMC! Steven plays a regular dude and the fact that he happens to be Asian, is just the cherry on top. I guess it doesn’t hurt to be named one of the Sexiest Man of 2013 according to People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man” edition. This should come as no surprise for fans of The Walking Dead.
I found this awesome post in Audrey Magazine “10 reasons Glenn would make a great boyfriend” check it out.

What are your thoughts? Do you find this commercial to be racist? ANA intention was not to be racist according to Japan Today. The commercial aired January 18th, 2014 and is spoken in english with japanese subtitles to promote ANA international flights.
In the commercial two ANA pilots talk about going to Vancouver and Hanoi. One pilot offers the other a hug, the response back was a blank stare “such a japanese reaction” (public affections between men are not common in Japan). “Lets change the image of japanese people” said the pilot that offered a hug. This is where the commercial gets strange, “of course” replies the other pilot, now he is wearing a blonde wig and a fake big nose. As you can imagine the ad sparked negative responses and customers canceling their loyalty cards. ANA posted an apology on their Facebook page and has pulled the commercial. What are your thoughts? Do you find this commercial offensive?
