I happened to come across with a product named 753 [七五三 in Japanese] outside of a supermarket last night. Snappy name huh? I guess it’s a product you will find in Japan only in New Year and it is for celebrating it. Basically, it is nothing more than a bunch of straw priced at 247yen. Is it worth the price? I just know that you can get a cheese burger at Mecca’s if you add 50yen on top of it. I wonder what would show on people’s face if they match the price with the name 753, say, 753yen for 2 bunches of 753? How does it sound to you?
Lastly, if you know how to use it and what it is for, drop me a line
