Dinosaur Head, Half Price!

KappaTRex

Surely I must know someone who would love to receive a life-sized dinosaur head! On sale for only ¥18,900, it’s so hard to pass up! I mean, who wouldn’t want a tyrannosaur hanging over their fireplace?

This shop on Kappabashi street in Tokyo’s restaurant supply district specializes in custom-made props. In addition to Rex the Friendly Tyrannosaur, today’s stock included Mr. Menacing Lobster, the Lonesome Cowboy, Santa Claus and the Missus, and Squirty the  Cheerful Hot Dog.

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!

    • ¥18,900 is about $181.00 at today’s exchange rate. This dinosaur head is so huge, though, I’m pretty sure you’d pay a lot more than that for shipping, if you want it sent anywhere outside of Tokyo!
