Oh, Japan! is a weekly feature in which I will chronicle the wierd, wacky and just plain crazy goings on in Japan. Because we all know, Japan is prone to doing things that make us Westerners say “Oh, Japan!”.
In the english-speaking world, we have Lady Gaga for those who want pop music backed up by wierd costumes and imagery. Japan however has someone else, someone much more kawaii. Japan has Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. If you like cute things, prepare for what is without a doubt a cute overload. Brace yourself folks, its Pon Time!
Check out Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s hit single “PonPonPon” below. If you can go a day without thinking of all things PonPonPon after watching this, you have the mental discipline of a monk. You are not prepared for PonPonPon! Or put more simply “Oh, Japan!”
