Japanese Magazines

Sooooo awhile ago I was really wanting a Happie Nuts Magazine... and... one of my fellow bloggers, Tom & Sakie from Exotic Japan, was AMAZING enough to send me one =) yay!!!

sorry for glare...!
well anyways I love this magazine! Its like the perfect mixture of fashion, beauty, and everything girlie.. its like not too girlie like Ageha but still had that feeling of young and flirty. I really love this magazine.. my new favorite...!

Normally I get my magazines from this website, and I thought I would tell you all bout it!

 Royal Quartz is the website I normally use to purchase Japanese magazine in the States.  Since I live in a small town I don't really have access to any Japanese goods stores, so my only other option is online... and though there are plenty of sites that sell Japanese magazines, SHIPPING RATES ARE SOOOOO SCARY... lol. Seriously though, shipping rates kill ya... but Royal Quartz rates are really good considering..

They normally have a good selection of magazines and if they don't have what you are looking for they have a form you can fill out in hopes they might be able to find it for you...

anyways I thought I would share.. do any of you have a favorite site you like to order from? let me know.. maybe I'm missing out on a good thing!

Only in Japan : DUI Passenger Tickets??


“Riding as a passenger in a vehicle operated by a person intoxicated: DWI — Maximum jail time of 3 years or a fine of about $4,400 or less. DUI — Maximum jail time of two years or a fine not exceeding about $2,650.”


“You don’t have to be drinking to get into trouble

One of the new provisions of Japan’s revised traffic law spells out specific punishment for people who provide alcohol and vehicles to drunken drivers, and those who ride with a driver who they know has been drinking.”
