Titty...the Store, and Heat Up Room Shoes

Some more wonderful Japanglish from the Land of the Rising Sun...

First up, Titty, a store in the underground mall right next to the east exit of JR Shinjuku. Seriously guys, Shinjuku? Us New Yorkers might not know much about Japan, but we aren't going to name a store in Times Square Oppai. (...the same meaning in Japanese if you haven't figure it out...)


My slippers were getting pretty old and grungy, so I went to Don Quixote in Takadanobaba to pick up a new pair. Behold... Heat Up Room Shoes!


And from the people who brought you ER, Chicago Hope, Grey's Anatomy, and House... hold onto your seats for the new breathtaking drama, Doctors.


And finally, this one contains no Engrish, but I thought it was pretty sweet nonetheless. Mobile Suit Gundam standing next to the Floating Torii Gate of Miyajima Island. This photo was decorating the wall of a gaming mall in Hiroshima right down the street from the Peace Park.

To be fair though, there are still a lot of places in Times Square with "titty" in (or implied in) the name
