    Japanese Mythology & Folklore: Yokai - Chōchin obake



    Article by BK-201

    Paper Lantern Ghost

    提灯お化け
    ちょうちんおばけ

    TRANSLATION: paper lantern ghost

    APPEARANCE: When a paper lantern, or a chōchin, reaches an advanced age, it sometimes becomes a chōchin obake. The paper splits along one of its wooden ribs, forming a gaping mouth with a wild, lolling tongue. One or two eyes pop out of the upper half of the lantern, and occasionally arms or legs may sprout from its body as well.

    BEHAVIOR: Like the karakasa-kozō, it rarely causes physical harm, preferring simply to surprise and scare humans, laughing and rolling its large tongue and big eyes at guests in the home. Occasionally, power onryō have been known to disguise themselves as chōchin obake: a case of one of the most dangerous...

    Sarushima - "Monkey Island"



    Article by BK-201

    A small island with no monkeys but plenty of military ruins

    The only natural island in Tokyo Bay, in that it has no man-made beaches or cliffs, Sarushima is a small rocky piece of land that acts as a barrier to the important harbor.

    While the island is now no more than a relaxing spot for fishermen and tourists, its strategic importance has been known since the early 1800s when the Tokugawa Shogunate built military fortifications on the island which still remain today. During World War II the strategic importance of the island was again leveraged as the Japanese built artillery points around the older structures. Brick-lined tunnels and walls of fortresses still remain from generations past, though they are now overgrown with plants, creating a unique blend of history and...

    JDO Field Trip: Asahi Plaza Capsule Hotel



    The First, the Original. The Hotel Room in a Pod!


    Japan has a multitude of interesting and innovative ideas to its credit. Many have been adapted by other cultures. Some remain uniquely Japanese. Pod hotels are in the latter category.

    Created to meet the need for hotel rooms in the crowded urban centers around Japan, they provide the most basic of accommodations when visiting a city. A bed, a TV, a reading light and not much more are fit into the science fiction-esque sleeping quarters. The pods have also found a clientele in drunk businessmen.

    There is more to do at the hotel than just enjoy your personal pod, as it is equipped with a variety of communal rooms such as saunas and a comic book room, though many of the extras cost a little to use.

    The Asahi Plaza Capsule Hotel first opened in 1979, and the...

    Project ARMS Writer, Phantom Master Artist's Area D



    Manga Ends

    This year's combined sixth and seventh issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine announced on Wednesday that writer Kyoichi Nanatsuki and illustrator Kyung-Il Yang will end their Area D - Inōryōiki manga in the magazine's next issue, which Shogakukan will publish in January.

    The "prison survival action" story is set after the sudden emergence of special powers in certain pockets of humanity. To deal with these so-called "Altered," a mysterious remote island prison named "Area D" was built.

    Nanatsuki (Project ARMS) and Yang (Blade of the Phantom Master, Defense Devil) launched the manga in 2012. Shogakukan published the manga's 13th compiled book volume in November 2015, and will publish the 14th volume on February 18.​
