In Japan This Is Perfectly Normal

A Very Comprehensive and Accurate Look at Life in Japan

For the skeptical: http://www.starvations.jp

Starvations is both a children’s clothing chain in Japan and a display of Japan’s spectacularly bed grasp of the English language. This is in a shopping mall in Fukuoka, the largest city in southern Japan.

English shop names in Japan seem to be really popular, but among them lie these downright weird ones that make you snicker, giggle, gasp or just stand there confused and dumbfounded asking “Why?”.

The name “Starvations” came to be from a very logical mathematical equation (asians are experts in this field): “Star” + “Innovations”. I could never understand that about Japan, they always try to make combos of English words to come up with a cool, foreign-sounding name which usually turns out to be plain weird for those outside of that country; or in this case, making up a completely different word. Thankfully the intended audience doesn’t care if it is correct or not as long as it looks good and sounds cool. It’s kind of like that Kanji tattoo you got last week that actually says picnic table… no wait, it’s exactly like that.

Dressing Up For No Reason

japan costume, japanese costumes, japanese banana costume, monley costume, cock roach costume

Japanese people love to dress up. It’s strange because they don’t really celebrate Halloween, some do, but most don’t… I guess they don’t need to use the holiday as an excuse to throw down, dress up and make magic happen.

Racism

I know that these images would cause (or have caused) a lot of controversy in other places in the world. Why are the Japanese so racist? I don’t know, but what i do know is that their idea of humor is plastic poop. They do make very good automobiles, however.
