When it comes to selling miniature replicas of burning logs, nobody can beat Tokyu Hands. Yes, this patented FireWood(TM) product will have you on the edge of your seat as you pretend you’re drinking that whisky & soda out in the wild woods (although the illusion works a bit better if you’re the size of a GI Joe). Adding to the whoa-I-can-almost-smell-the-smoke verisimilitude, if you blow on the little electric logs in “Outdoor Mode,” the embers leap to life, even if you haven’t yet drunk enough to set your breath on fire. Whisky and batteries not included.
If you’d like to visit Tokyu Hands the next time you’re in Tokyo, directions & maps are on my website, The https://jonellepatrick.comTokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
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!
