This is a “Premium” Ichiban Kuji and each ticket is $9.99.

Paper Craft

A popular activity for anime lovers in Japan is “paper crafts”. Folding paper to create little versions of beloved anime characters.

Unlike origami that only consists of folding, paper crafts can require tape, glue, and sometimes scissors.

We have a handful of paper crafts kits here at the store from animes you might be familiar with: “K-ON!” and “Dangan Rompa”. I decided to put one together to show you how easy it is to make these and how cute they are.

No scissors are require for these kits~ just punch them out.

Simply fold the pieces and match the numbers and insert together.

Now put them all together!

Cute huh?! Stop by and check out all the other paper craft, and maybe even take one home!!

So Many Gamecube Games!!

       In my experience every summer is the “Summer of Nintendo”.
As the summer temperatures rise so do people’s desire for Nintendo games. This year more so than previous years, Gamecube games are in super high demand. This is why I am so pleased to show off some of the major titles we currently have in stock.

This is only a small chunk of our Gamecube selection. Just like the summer weather these games are sizzling hot and won’t last long on the shelves. Stop by and check out these and all of our other Nintendo games today!

Bento Boxes and Lunches!

Gorgeous weather is here and looks like it’s here to stay! Out with the scarves and cocoa and in with shorts and picnics! To me, nothing screams summer like hanging out at a park or down by the river with friends and some yummy food. This summer’s picnics will be extra special since we’ll be eating out of the new “Attack On Titan” bento boxes we have in stock in the store.

These two tiered boxes are the perfect size for everyone! Whether you want a full meal or just a snack, you can pack it into this bento box. Have you ever seen a bento and wanted to make one yourself? They are pretty darn easy to make and I’m going to be posting bento ideas and recipes to help inspire you!

Before we opened the store, I used to make bento lunches every day for Aaron and myself. Sometimes they were pretty traditional Japanese bentos, and sometimes they were pretty American. Either way, they are filled with yummy (and pretty healthy) foods and don’t take much longer to make than a normal American lunch.

This bento has top tier: orange slices, french toast with honey, trail mix, and bottom tier: spinach salad with homemade miso dressing, baby yellow tomatoes, and ginormous grapes. There aren’t any strict rules to bento making, so add in whatever you’d like. My advice would be to “eat the rainbow”. The more color you add to your bento the more authentic it will look and the more healthy it will be!

I have a hard time eating my veggies so I like to make them extra tasty to guarantee they end up in my belly. What I like to do is make a miso dressing to yummy-fy my veggies. My dressing so SO EASY. You should totally make it. ;D It’s not just a salad dressing, so you can use it on lots of things~ marinade chicken or even saute veggies in it.

Just take a small spoonful of miso (which I have seen at Safeway, or you can pick it up at any Asian market). Add a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1/8th teaspoon of granulated garlic. Chop up a green onion really thinly and mix it all together.

Hopefully these posts will inspire you to try your hand at making bentos. If you do email, tweet, or Facebook us a picture of it and we’ll feature it here on the blog!
