Why do people have to steal?

At Otakon someone stole my Blackberry out of the women's bathroom of the dealer's room. Boo. If anyone can aid in its return, there will be a goodie reward in store!

On a more positive note, THANK YOU!!!! to all of the people that stopped by our booth at Otakon!! We had a wonderful time and felt very welcomed by everyone! We are so excited that our website is almost ready! Please stand by for a huge selection of goodies to come! ^__^

Hello Friends of Happy Japan,

We apologize that we don't have a online shop up yet. We are working diligently to produce an online shop in the next 3-4 weeks. It is our number one priority to ensure that we have the BEST site for our customers. We want to make sure that our site is neatly designed, easy to navigate, stocked full of our Japanese goodies, and is most importantly safe for our customers to shop at. We are going to have a lot of great features for everyone using the site such as a sign-up for the mailing list which will allow everyone to receive coupons thru our mailing list!! And who wouldn't want discounts to purchase these goodies! ^__~ Again, we apologize for the wait, but want to let everyone know, that it will be WELL worth the wait! Thank you for your patience and continued support!

Laura, Happy Japan

Our Trip to Japan!

Our trip to Japan was amazing, and we has some of the best time hanging out in the UFO Claw Machine parlors. Which came in very handy when in started pouring down rain in Nakano, and Happy Japan's Ian won this Rilakumma Poncho.

This is one of our favorite finds from our trip. There's chopsticks built into the lettuce level!

So funny.
