~ Pink Tentacle In the sophisticated popular culture of the Edo period (1603-1868), much attention was devoted to Japan's rich pantheon of traditional monsters and apparitions, known as yokai. Sometimes frightening, sometimes humorous, these compelling Japanese folk creatures were the subject of numerous artistic and literary works. One such work was Hyakkai Zukan, a collection of picture scrolls completed in 1737 by Sawaki Suushi, a relatively unknown artist who studied under master painter Hanabusa Itcho (1702-1772). Hyakkai Zukan's colorful depictions of Japan's most notorious creatures inspired (and were copied by) yokai artists for generations. Here is a peek inside.

The 5 Biggest Mistakes People Make When Learning Kanji The Japanese learning industry has, for all intents and purposes, failed you. It’s not your fault that learning kanji is like hitting your face on a curb, it’s the industry as a whole.

Journey - Once More Into The Desert The desert awaits: a lonely, confusing, disorientating wilderness. That, however, was last year. Two hours isn't a particularly long time to dedicate to a game, even for me, so - bouyed by the game's winter promotion and with hopefully the notion that I'd find some of the experience at least a little bit unfamiliar, I recently fired Journey back up. Flipping over to my 'alternative' PSN moniker (one that hadn't played Journey, so as to be as fresh as possible) and selecting the icon from the XMB, I settled back, excitedly hunched over the DualShock, ready for that beautiful attract screen to stir into action. Oh, the memories. I was staring at that hill in the middle distance, punctuated with the markers, the wind whipping at the material flapping in the breeze.

Plog Captured Photo Blog has moved Posted Jun 02, 2015 Click here to see the latest posts from The Denver Post Captured Photo Blog. (more…) Jun 02, 2015 | Categories: Uncategorized | Add a Comment How to get a Japanese Scholarship Getting to Japan is expensive. Living in Japan is expensive. Why not let someone else take care of the monetary part of going to Japan so you can go there for free? There are a lot of people (and governments) just handing out money (I feel like the guy that wears the question-mark suit on those commercials) to help you go to Japan and other places as well. Reconsidering the Feminism of Joss Whedon The facts are these: Joss Whedon is lauded as being one of the most forward-thinking show creators and writers currently wielding his craft today. The famous exchange between Whedon and a reporter – Why do you write these strong female characters? Because you’re still asking me that question – is bandied around the internet on a frequent basis. (Although this exchange was of his own imagining.)

The 20+ Best Japanese Cat Videos On The Web Welcome back to another Saturday Timewaster! I hope the next couple hours of your Saturday are clear (otherwise, you’ll need to clear your schedule and cancel that totally unimportant appointment). This post is all about Japanese cat videos… The best there is on the web (at least in my opinion). This Is Going To Be Tough If I could, there’d be a thousand Japanese cat videos on this blog post. Unfortunately, I have the very important task of cutting down and showing you the best Japanese cat videos on the web. Jiro's attempt of communication Jon Lee Anderson, an American journalist (I guess), is talking in his article to the New Yorker about the recent tragedy in the Connecticut school. The article is entitled “GUNS AND THE LIMITS OF SHAME” and says in the very beginning “What does it take for a society to be sickened by its own behavior and to change its attitudes?”. Apparently Mr Anderson was ashamed and embarrassed of being American because of terrible gun violence such as the recent one. Why ashamed? Because people outside the United States would have the impression that his beloved country is in fact such a violent country where people shoot small children at school.
