Big in Japan



Up Close and Personal with a Giant Enema

They say that in Japan there is a mascot for virtually everything and I think Ichijiku, the Japanese pharmaceutical company specializing in enemas, has proven it.

This Friday Ichijiku’s penguinesque  enema-shaped  mascot, Kan-chan, made a rare public appearance at an upscale shopping emporium in downtown Tokyo and I was there to meet it. The drug company’s Twitter account says that Kan-chan “has plans to go many different places.” To be honest, before Friday, I could only think of one. Now after getting up close and personal with the company mascot I have to say that it could brighten up just about any dark corner.

  1. Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
    We just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru PeopleAbroad.org we intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
    We would like to ask you to contribute as an author to the website by writing even one single post with photos and/or videos about the region of the world you live in. Your post can be externally linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
    If possible, we would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example: https://www.peopleabroad.org/nerissa-filipino-living-in-italy/.
    To become an author, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled abroad.
    Please, sign up to our website at https://www.peopleabroad.org/register/ and send all your files with things you would like to share (your story or your posts) by email to people(at)peopleabroad(dot)org. In case of big files, send them by WETRANSFER.
    Since this website is still under construction, we do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. So, to access it, just type www.PeopleAbroad.org.
    We are just starting and that is why your help is essential. We would love to see you onboard!
    All the best,
    Nerissa
