Come here and go get with me
I wanna see you Wednesday
Come on, come on, come over
Take it off your shoulder
Come on and pull me over
We gotta get to work now
Sliding it off your shoulder
as we're falling over

Welcome to Japan!

- "Welcome to Japan" by The Strokes

Hello, everyone! Today I'm plugging the Yanfes! event and hunt that has been going on throughout the month of April. (Sorry for the late coverage; it's been a rough month IRL.) The official site is here, but since it's entirely in Japanese, I'm providing a short guide in English here!

公式日本語ガイドはこちらですが、ハントアイテムのプレビューは、お読みください。遅れて申し訳ありません。m(_ _)m

Until April 30th at the Kaku-Machi SIM, you can enjoy a fun market with freebies, a bunch of awesome photos and, best of all, a free hunt with 49 prizes, including the badass one-piece biker uniform I'm wearing above!

Scattered throughout the areas of the SIM marked on the map below are oblong pieces of bread (pan) set for sale at L$0. They're all the same shape and color, but their size varies wildly. Some are as small as a fingernail, and others are as big as the roof of a house! You can find 22 of them in the landing area (the school and the bridge) and 27 of them in the market area.

So, what is "Yanfes" anyway?

It's a festival for all things yankee (yankii), which is a subculture in Japan that combines elements of American rockabilly (50s music, pompadour haircuts, leather jackets, motorcycles) with rebellion, teenage delinquency, and general badassery. You can read more about yankii culture and the etymology of the term here on Timeline.com. In Japanese pop culture, references to yankii include chain-smoking schoolgirls with bleached hair, ankle-length sailor skirts, brawls on the roof after school, and scooter races. Lots of races with seriously decked out scooters. Tofugu has a great article on the history of bosozoku, which is a culture closely associated with yankii.
