Suica Penguins For Lunch!

Yes, I admit it: the reason I have a Suica train pass rather than a PASMO is that that Suica penguin mascot is SO SO SO CUTE.

Am I right, or am I right?
Am I right, or am I right?

And guess what? I just discovered that we penguin-o-philes don’t have to be satisfied with the occasional squee! when we go through the train turnstile – now we can have Suica Penguins for lunch too! Check out this super adorable Suica Penguin rice ball maker kit I just found in Akihabara!

Even more want-worthy than baby penguin rice balls, and I never thought I'd say that.

Admit it, you want one BADLY! ^_^

If you’d like to visit the Akihabara area the next time you’re in Tokyo, directions & maps are on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.

“A genuinely gripping crime thriller which wrong-foots and perplexes the reader throughout, drawing us in emotionally . . . Highly recommended.” Raven Crime Reads

For nine years, Tokyo Detective Kenji Nakamura thought his mother’s death was an accident. Then he gets a call, and his life begins to unravel. Because if it wasn’t an accident…what was it? Read more

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. Yes I have to say I do… maybe we could create a club of kawaii addicts and organize online meetings. I wonder if we should create meetings to share our kawaii stuff or to swear that we’ll stop buying them??? It would be more difficult for people living in Japan of course.
    btw I prefer Kyoto mascot the blue platypuss ^^ even cuter

    • Thanks, authorly friend of mine! ^^;; Not sure when they’re coming out in print yet, but sometime this year! Meanwhile, hoping that yours is flying off the shelf like butter-slathered (yet slimming) hotcakes!
