ONE OK ROCK

twitter account

This is a Japanese rock band.

When they first formed their group, they sang at the studio after midnight to reduce costs at 1 o’clock, and their band name is a play on words.

They are extremely popular right now, and they are only gaining momentum especially in Asia.

The lead vocal Taka in particular speaks very good English and is one contributing factor to their fame.

They are a very cool band so see them once and become a fan!

MIYAVI

twitter account

Last up is Japan’s very own samurai guitarist, MIYAVI.

He currently performs live in over 250 shows in approximately 30 countries, including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

MIYAVI's guitar playing method is unique and he uses the slap technique.

Without using a pick at all, he uses his fingers and utilizes the chopper (slapping the guitar) technique.

With his groundbreaking visual style, he is now targeting the world, releasing songs that the world can dance to and albums that can compete globally, and as a result his popularity is skyrocketing.

You won’t be able to keep your eyes off of this guy, who possesses a coolness unlike any other.

Why we recommend “Weathering With You”

Hi everyone, do you know the ultra-popular movie in Japan, “Weathering With You”?

It is a movie by director Makoto Shinkai, who directed the movie that all of us watched three years ago, “Your Name”.

This time we would like to touch on the movie that all of us were waiting for, “Weathering With You”.

It will be shown in theatres on January 17, 2020, so we hope you watch it!

 

Recommended Reason 1:Based on real locations.

This movie depicts locations that are actually located in Tokyo. Starting with the ferry heading from the remote island to Tokyo, there are actual locations that exist in Japan. Judging from the fact that the ferry has traveled more than 10 hours from Tokyo, you can see that they are aboard the "Sarubia Maru", and it is also evident that the main character Hotaka is going from Hachijojima to Tokyo, the one and only 10 hour ship ride from Tokyo Takeshiba Passenger Ship Terminal. In addition, it is evident that he is in the second-class cabin making the movie even more real.

Also, Hotaka was actually staying at the “Mamboo Shinjuku Yasukuni Dori store”.

The abandoned building that is an important spot in the story is Yoyogi Kaikan.

You can clearly see in the film that the Haruna's (the girl who is the main character) house is located at the slope around "Tabata Station".

It may be fun to go visit these locations.

 

Recommended Reason 2:Beauty

Director Shin Makoto's work is characterized by the coexistence of two art styles in many scenes.

Characters are consistently expressed with a stylish anime touch, while the background art is depicted as a photograph.

"Weathering With You” fully utilizes this type of realistic art style, and delivers the unique sense of Tokyo and Shinjuku to overseas audiences.

Through such realistic depictions, this movie fully shows not the fun and lively side of Shinjuku, but also the existence of dark businesses that is required to survive.

It is interesting that it is a fantasy that also conveys realistic issues and concepts.

 

Recommended Reasons 3;Background of characters

Since there are not many characters, the circumstances and settings of each character are stunning, and you will be able to fully sympathize with the characters' feelings.

This almost represents the conflicts and dilemmas that occur in our daily lives.

There is something that attracts viewers in this aspect.

 

Conclusion

There are many aspects that are impressing such as the beauty of the pictures and the story, making this work a must-see.

You may even learn some things through this work.

Why don't you go to the cinema to see this brilliant movie?

Condom Size List

The Best 10 Japanese Condoms 2018

All From Japan will touch on what everybody is curious about when purchasing condoms – “size”!

What is the size of condoms? Can big sizes fit small sizes? Of course not! With the right knowledge and sober judgment, loving partners can protect each other. So, let me spread some information about the size of condoms.

The first step in picking condoms…is “size”!
Everyone, what do you care about when choosing a condom? The manufacturer? Thickness? Of course, it is important to choose a reliable manufacturer, and it is important to stick to the thickness and thinness you like, but what is most important in choosing a condom is actually "size".

What is a condom size?

Now, I bet that many of you think that the size refers to the “length”.

In fact, condoms are mainly divided by thickness and size. There are variations depending on manufacturers and products, but there are the S size (about 3.1 cm), M size (about 3.3 cm), L size (about 3.8 cm), and XL size (about 4.5 cm).

In one survey, 45% of respondents said that they have used a wrong sized condom in the last three months. Why is this?

First of all, there may be people who do not know their size and believe that they are the standard M size.

In such a case, it is better to measure the circumference of the thickest part of the penis using a measurer.
Check your size referring to the S size (about 9.7 to 10.0 cm), M size (about 10.6 to 11.3 cm), L size (about 11.9 to 13.1 cm) and XL size (about 13.8 to 17.8 cm).

At All From Japan, we mainly deal with the M size and L size!
Below is a list of sizes.

Reason why Fuji Latex “SKYN” is recommended

Fuji Latex SKYN Original iR Premium Soft Condom 10pcs

"Wearing it is the testimony of love"-. As such, “condoms” are a common concern between men and women. Recently, thinness such as “0.01 mm thinness!” has been particularly noted, but according to the industry, the competition among companies has resulted in “stop at 0.01 mm; if it is thinner than that, the strength will always be compromised”. Therefore, the main topic of condoms recently has centered around not the thinness, but rather the functionality of the condoms. With this said, we would like to introduce "SKYN (R)" (Fuji Latex) in this article!

The feature of "SKYN" is that it uses a material called "iR" (isoprene rubber). Most condoms were made with natural rubber or urethane, but iR is significant softer, and is even used for medical use. "SKYN" apparently boasts the world's number 1 share, including countries like the United States! Most of all, the "feels good for two people" catchphrase is of particular interest. What kind of condom is SKYN? Let's dive into this topic!

Package with a sense of quality that is easy for even women to buy
SKYN
Both the box and the contents are designed with black and gold colors and there is a sense of luxury. The black-package "SKYN" seems to be easy for even women to buy. Let's now take a look at the contents.
Texture, softness
It looks the same as any other regular condom, but may be rather bulky ...? This was our first impression. What becomes apparent after checking the thinness is that it is a very soft and slippery material. The "super thin urethane" that is 0.01 mm, which as become the new norm for condoms, is a bit tough in order to make it thin yet durable. On the other hand "SKYN" is very thin and soft. In terms of softness, the palm of the hand is A15, tires are A65, and urethane condoms are A60, whereas "SKIN" comes in at A29. It is thus close to real human skin.
No worry of rubber allergy
And this product feels like a surgical glove. The iR used in SKYN is also used as a material for surgical gloves and nipple part for baby bottles. This is a material that does not contain ingredients that cause rubber allergy, so there is no concern about allergy. This is definitely something to be thankful of.
No stiffness!
Last but not least is the actual feel when it is put on, but what stands out is that "it is so stretchy" as everybody says. The way it contorts is completely different from that of other materials. With a little bit of strength it stretches a little, and when more force is applied it feels like it stretches out at once. In other words, it latches on very tight when simply worn, but it is an interesting material that exhibits its true flexibility when force is applied. If you're looking for thermal conductivity you should wear a thin condom, but if you are looking for a great fit you should probably go with SKYN. The standard of "softness" which we do not always think of - it may actually be more important than thinness.
The catchphrase "feels good for two people" is something of interest, but the reason why it feels good for women is because of not only its softness, but also because the safe rubber that

The Best 10 Japanese Condoms 2018

top5valuepackst

What's the best Japanese condom?

The Japanese condoms are renowned in the world for their top quality. Once you give it a try, you will be surprised how much better the Japanese condoms are than those you have been using since then.

So which one is the best among the Japanese condoms? Here's the top 10 list!

*Data from 2015 Jan - 2015 July.

1. Sagami Original 0.02

Sagami Original 0.02 Condom was once the world’s thinnest condom before Sagami Original 0.01 came to the market. With polyurethane, Sagami Original 0.02 has strength of 3-5 times higher than rubber condoms, thus it’s thinner yet safer. 0.02mm (0.0008”) is roughly as thin as plastic wrap.

Sagami 0.02 is more popular than Sagami 0.01 as it's more reasonable and still feels superb.

It doesn’t have the typical condom smell! It feels like you’re not wearing it and you can feel more warmth. It’s completely different from those condoms I’ve been using before.

2. Okamoto 0.02 EX

Okamoto 0.02 EX Condoms is one of the top selling Japanese condom brands. It's thin and soft; the beauty of Okamoto lies in the fact that the thinness of a condom is evenly the same from top to bottom while typical condoms become thicker as they go to edges.

More selling than Okamoto 0.01 as it's more reasonable and still feels great!

Very thin. Great cost performance. It feels so good, maybe because of Okamoto’s even thinness technology. I prefer Okamoto to Sagami. And it’s cheaper to buy it from here Allfromjapan than anywhere else.

3. Sagami Original 0.02 Large

Sagami Original 0.02 Large is the large size of Sagami Original 0.02.
The standard size is basically for Japanese male; if it's too tight for you, maybe 0.02 Large is the option.

The standard 002 is too tight for me so i used this one. Fits really well. And it’s so thin! The unique condom pack is also easy to open. 001 is kinda expensive and a bit tight so I’ll stick to this one.

4. Okamoto 0.01 Zero One

Okamoto 0.01 Zero One is one of the thinnest condoms in the world. Compared to Sagami Original 0.01, Okamoto Zero One is softer and more flexible, with even thinness from top to bottom while typical condoms become thicker as they go to edges.

My favorite used to be Sagami original 001, but when I used this Okamoto 0.01 for the first time, I thought ‘Wow it’s better than Sagami 001!’. I can’t really explain why but I think Okamoto 001 fits better and thinner.

5. Okamoto Real Fit 003

Okamoto Real Fit 003 is one of the best selling condoms in Japan, regarded by some as the best condom ever despite its thickness of 0.03 mm.
The shape of Okamoto 003 Real Fit is designed according to the men’s penis, which gives you and your partner a real feeling of LOVE. 003 Real Fit fits your head.

It fits perfectly and there’s no hard texture which is a bad thing about typical polyurethane condoms. Great heat conduction, and it felt so good that I had to double check if I was actually wearing it. lol

6. Okamoto 002 Large

Okamoto 0.02 LARGE SIZE is the large size of Okamoto 0.02 EX Condoms is one of the top selling Japanese condoms. If the standard size is too tight, then this large size may fit you better.

I love Okamoto 002. The standard size is too tight for me (I'm an American), so I always stick to this Large size. The standard size is designed for Japanese basically.

7. Sagami Original 0.01

Sagami Original 0.01 is the world's thinnest condom. Since it's too popular in Japan and Sagami limits its supply, all retails and suppliers in Japan suffer a shortage. Even people living in Japan have very little chance to find some available at retails.

Ranked lower as the price is high now due to low supply.

I must say it’s the best condom ever. It’s just incredible how thin this condom is. I was afraid if it may easily break but it’s very flexible and durable.

8. Spiral Condom Inspiral S

SPIRAL Condom Inspiral S is an innovative condom that gains popularity in 28 countries including Japan. With its motto ‘Condom is not all about thinness’, the spiral-shaped condom is designed based on Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF&E).

It may take a while to get used to this weird loose shape, but it definitely gives you a really great feeling. What surprised me more is that my girlfriend's reaction was totally different. I now must stick to this. One down side is it's thick like 0.09mm ones, but worth a try really.

9. Okamoto 003 Aloe

Okamoto 003 Aloe Jelly contains aloe vera extracts in lubricant, giving making insertion very smooth and showing your tenders to ladies.
Some say Aloe is the best condom because of its unique lubricant.

Bought this after reading great reviews about this on the internet. Great thing about this is the lots of lubricant and the soft texture of latex. My partner says the lubricant is rather sweet though lubricant of typical condoms is bitter.

10. Glamorous Butterfly 003 Hot

Glamorous Butterfly series have popularity from teenage and 20's Japanese girls. Glamorous Butterfly 003 Hot Jelly is the 0.03 mm wide condom with plenty of jelly lubricant. Give tender and warmth to your partner.

It’s expensive compared to other Glamorous Butterfly series, but it’s thin and very easy to put it on. It’s got lubricant in the top part where the sperm will pool, so you can put it on in a sec.
