My friend Chuko missed a connection in Tokyo on her way here from Singapore and picked up a cool Japanese magazine called Eat. It's Bi-lingual and has that Wallpaper-ish feel to it.

Some items:

  • Ninja Askasaka - A dark mysterious ninja-themed restaurant. The first challenge is to find the black door unmarked in a black wall.
  • Makoto Aida - A contemporary artist, check out this gem:

And I don't know if this is something for engrish.com but the top position listed in the inside titles (where it lists editors, directors, writers, etc (what is the proper name of that section?)) page is "Dictator - Ayako Chujo" ..which I find quite funny. I wonder how the interns fare there?
