Japan Today wrote:430 passengers trapped as heavy snow strands train in Japan

NIIGATA — Around 430 passengers were forced to stay a night aboard a local train stranded since Thursday evening due to heavy snowfall in Niigata on the Sea of Japan coast.

According to rescue workers, five of them -- a man in his 40s and four women in their teens and 20s -- felt unwell and the man was taken to a hospital. The train resumed service Friday morning about 15 hours after it was stranded, with many passengers exhausted after standing all night in crowded cars.

Would you eat a banana and its peel?

If you've ever wanted to eat banana peel, Japan is the place for you.

People from all over the country are visiting a department store that sells an unusual version of the fruit. It looks just like any other banana, but it's supposed to be softer and sweeter -- and its peel is edible.

In Japanese, it's being described as "mongee" -- the "super" banana.

Even though they cost around $6 each, the special bananas have had no trouble attracting customers to the one place in the country where they're sold, the Tenmaya store in the southwestern city of Okayama. The company that grows them told CNN it's ramping up production to meet rising demand.

Bananas are one of the most popular fruits in Japan. The country has long relied on imports from places like the Philippines, where the climate is better suited to growing the fruit.

But D&T Farm, the company behind the super bananas, is hoping to change that with an agricultural method it calls "freeze-thaw awakening."

Bananas usually grow in temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit). But D&T Farm says it has found a way to cultivate them at far cooler temperatures inside a special greenhouse, says CEO Tetsuya Tanaka.

The process, which involves initially freezing the bananas' cells, makes the skin edible and even nutritious, D&T says. Its researchers claim it also allows them to grow other tropical fruits, such as papayas and pineapples.

Something for Anax:
A dude on reddit wrote:I found a list of my late grandfathers favourite ramen places in Tokyo (he passed over 20 years ago). I’m going to find whichever ones are still there by asking strangers for directions, and will keep you updated with photos.

Paisura. Never heard that word yet.

"Breast slash" sounded kind of violent so I'm relieved to see what it actually means. One of those words like "camel toe" or "thigh gap" I guess.

Seems there's already a subreddit for it too.

The girl who models the t-shirt that gives an optical illusion of having "oppai!" that was posted a few months ago tries putting her pocketbook strap between her "breasts" to have that look.

To say Japan is "Boob Obsessed" would prove an understatement, so to write.

Damn. There's 1:30 I'll never get back.

Oh, I'm also ridiculously proud to announce that I do not need my truck (sorry about the dick, but nice truck) to park itself.

Yet.
