Pop culture roundup from our favorite island nation:

Don't illegally dump your trash or Ryuk will come get you! To protect against illegal trash dumping, mini torii gates are being erected. If you’re Japanese, you’re bound to have some sort of fear of the gods.

JapanSugoi has some great footage of Harajuku fashion. I swore I saw some Psycho le Cemu & Malice Mizer cosplay in there. In related news, Tokyopop will be releasing an English version of the Gothic Lolita Bible - for those time you absolutely MUST 'get your bonnet on'. (via aO)
