I've just stumbled across an absolutely fantastic website about Japan - MasaManiA.

How to describe it? Well, it's a photoblog run by an ex-Japanese porn director who takes random photos on the streets of Tokyo in a quest for the truth. In his own words: "Japanese culture report by MasaManiA with f**king photo & poor English you never seen at boring CNN, Time or major sophisticated jurnalism. I don't know what is good, bad, right or wrong, but I certainly know there is the truth ! and I also know it must be F**K ! I'm not moralist. but wana be mania of the truth. MasaManiA means that. this is my philosophy."

If that's not enough to make you click on the link, then I don't know what is. Beware though, there's liberal nudity and swearing, so if you labour beneath the curse of an internet nanny you may be out of luck.

I particularly liked his take on the Japanese phenomenon of flashing the "peace" sign every time a J-boy or girl has a camera shoved in their face. See "No more piece (sic), More F**K!".

I clicked on this site at school a couple of weeks ago. And then had to switch off very quickly. A lady's chesticles were staring at me and I didn't want them staring at any of my teachers.
