Japan's Oldest and Most Famous Women's Magazine Features "A Japanese Rock 'n' Roll Ghost Story"!


Japan's oldest and most famous women's magazine, a magazine that's been around for more than 50 years, "Josei Jishin" has run a news feature about "A Japanese Rock 'n' Roll Ghost Story"!

Josei Jishin translates into "Women's Confidence" and it is ubiquitous in Japan; you see it at all the banks, hair salons and doctor's offices. There isn't a person over 10 years old in Japan who hasn't heard of Josei Jishin.

On Saturday, July 18, 2015, they ran a news feature about "A Japanese Rock 'n' Roll Ghost Story"!

Here's the link: 女性自身!?まさか!マイクの映画の記事が!今すぐチェック!

Here's the artist's (uh, me) rendition of the magazine jacket (subject to change without notice! Hee hee hee.)


The article starts out:

「一緒に日本のロック映画作らないか…」(Mike: "I'm making a a rock music movie. Let's do it together.")
「映画会社はどこなの?マイク」(Josei Jishin Magazine: "What movie production company is making this movie?")
「自分で作るのよ、僕が…」(Mike: "Uh, it's just me.")
「製作費は?」(Josei Jishin Magazine: "How about the budget?")
「お金ないよ」(Mike: "There is no budget. It's a punk rock movie.")
「えっ、、、、、、」(Josei Jishin Magazine: "What the f*ck????")

Delicious Aussie Beef Steak in Tokyo for Under $7.00 (USD)? Yep. Big Boy Restaurants!


I have found the best steak deal in Japan. It's at Big Boy Restaurants (Where they also have the most inexpensive salad bar in town).

The steak is a 120 gram Aussie beef steak that comes with potatoes, corn and string beans. It's ¥790. At ¥120 yen to the US Dollar, ¥790 works out to be about $6.58 for a delicious steak!... And, don't forget, in Japan, there's no tipping either!


(¥790 for one 120 gram steak. ¥1390 for two of them. The prices in the red box are for the steaks with the salad and soup and drink bar. Incredibly inexpensive!)

I think that's much cheaper than even in the USA. 

How do they do this great food at such a low price?



Delivered sizzling hot to your table

My son just loves this steak!

High quality cuts too.

Can't find a better steak deal in Japan!

My son loves that steak deal (Mom and dad will love the price!) Unbelievable deal! The rest of the menu is also filled with incredible deals; especially at lunch time... Oh, and the parking is free!!!

When folks from the west come to Japan, and if they are watching their budget, then Big Boy cannot be beat. 5 out of 5 stars for quality, cleanliness and price.
Check it out at Big Boy!
