Make Your Room Smell Like You’ve Been Smoking Weed, Even If You Haven’t!


Um, was it Opposite Day or were the geniuses at HEM just a little unclear on the concept when they dreamed up this product?

“Hey boy, smells like you been smokin’ some illegal substances in here!”

“No, I swear, it’s just incense!”

Saw these at  the Village Vanguard store in Shimo-kitazawa. If you’d like to be amazed by the weird goods there the next time you’re in Tokyo, a map to all Village Vanguard locations in Tokyo is on my other website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!

  1. Amazing. Maybe it’s not cannabis-SCENTED, but intended for precisely the scenario you describe. If so, another epic product-naming fail.

  2. I bought opium scented incense cones in Akishima from a store called Malaika. They had a bunch of hippie related things of that nature (not to mention really awesome clothing!) Luckily no one was like “I smell opium in here!” ( ゜0゜)Mostly just another incense fragrance.
