The Many Faces Of Kappa

I had a post on Kappa and Kappabashi over at : The Golden Kappa. Do check it out too! ^^
 There's a sign on Kappabashi in Japanese and English to be found too. Read up, if you found them. :)

    2. Ha ha... That's me lah.
      No hair is so senang.
      I wish I had no hair.

      No shampoo.
      No drying.
      Shower under 5 mins! Ha~

    3. But botak also need to take care. Make sure it all licin and shiny. Have to do scalp care mah. Right or not? xD

    4. No need.
      Your head will produce natural oil to make it licin and kilat.
      If you don;t shampoo your hair for two days, your hair will get very oily, right?
      It's the same oil lah.

  2. My favourite kappa-related saying is 河童の屁, kappa no he, which means "kappa's fart". That means "much ado about nothing", "no big deal", "meh". That was my semi-naughty comment for today. ^^

    3. How confident are you that I would know the meaning of "incorrigible"?

      I'm fickle minded. ^^

    1. Really? Why?

      I've started to think of Kappa as those INKlings in Murakami's books now that I'm reading it. @.@

  4. How cute. Did you buy any cooking equipment at Kappa Bashi?

    1. We got a few items but none too bulky as it will be too cumbersome to bring back. :)

    1. Kappabashi is the name of street in Asakusa. :)

      Those in the photos above are called Kappa - a "suijin" or a water deity. It is a mischievous creature and not exactly a pretty one. But trust Japanese to turn anything into cute creatures! ;)

  6. Nice photos. Like the cute ones more than the "realistic" ones. :) Found some good ones outside of Kappabashi but never saw so many when I walked up and down that street before.

    1. Me too. The realistic ones are way too scary (and ugly). xD

      I made it a point to look out for them when we were walking in the streets of Kappabashi. ^^
