For a limited time only, a Tokyo cafe is selling ice cream inspired by the breasts of the Senran Kagura video game characters.
It's safe to say that this dessert is milk-based.
Tokyo's Tokyo is an anime and manga store in Shibuya, and they take their trade seriously. So seriously, in fact, that the store is designed to mimic the product on the shelves. Warped tables represent worn out manga, which have been read over and over, while curved shelves -- complete with cell-like divisions -- resemble open manga.
Tokyo-based Ryo Matsui Architects headed up the design project, which took seven months to complete.
The Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's second-tallest building at 2,084 ft, was officially completed on February 29th. The tower is nearly double the height of Japan's previous tallest structure, the 1,091-foot Tokyo Tower transmitter.
Considering its location in a major earthquake zone, though, such a tall building needs some serious quake protection. The Sky Tree's architects at Nikken Sekkei say it's safer than any other super-tower because of its narrow 9:1 height to width ratio.
The building is supported by extremely thick steel tubes, which have a diameter of 7.5 feet at the base, and it uses its massive central beam as a both a counterweight and an anti-earthquake damping system.
The tower's three legs are anchored by a 164-foot-deep "root system" of concrete and reinforced steel that the architects describe as "monolithically integrated" with the ground.
The Sky Tree will open to the public on May 22nd.
