We’re coming into high matsuri season, when the local Shinto gods are paraded through the neighborhood to remind them of all the people and businesses they’re supposed to be keeping a lucky eye on, but these sake-filled summertime festivals that feature scantily-clad men rocking that shrine through the streets…
come with their own peculiar anxiety…
What if you finally get the coveted invite to don a fanny-flashing fundoshi and help carry the neighborhood shrine, but, well…you have a really hairy butt?
Ta-daaaa! Don Kihote to the rescue:
The Ketsuge (“Butt Fur”) Trimmer, for all your bum-baring needs.
