Comic: Ranking Oshibori in Japan

YB_4_18 japan comic comics cartoon texan in tokyo ranking oshibori

Basically, this is a continuation from yesterday’s comic. I’ve started collecting oshibori from fast food restaurants, coffee shops, and convenience stores. I was going to make a video of me opening them up and ranking them… but then I realized I would probably be the only person actually interested in watching/doing that.


And for those of you who don’t know what oshibori are, check out this wikipedia page.

    Do it Grace! I’d watch it

  3. 押しぶりが大好き!ビデオを興味がある!

  4. Literally laughed out loud on this one! I totally get the whole “ranking” the oshibori thing! I was handed quite a few when I went to Japan and some of them were soft and smelled like baby powder while some were odorless.

    I can imagine Ryosuke adding way more weird comments in this video hahahaha

    I’d watch it! The video would be interesting.

  6. Go with it :) Its an unique viewpoint about a subject matter that isn’t written or talked about elsewhere :)

  7. If you video it we will watch!

  8. Bahaha you should totally do the video! It’d totally watch it :D

  9. See, Grace we all love watching you and Ryosuke’s videos no matter how quirky and wacky they get. I will watch your videos all the time even go through the older ones again.

  10. Sometimes it’s just fun to watch people’s quirky interests.

  11. i would watch it!! i’m curious about them, here there is nothing that like looks so quick and easy for cleaning hands in the restaurant ^^

    I would watch Grace – Am curious to know what the differences are between them.

    I think this was how the museum of branding and packaging started with someone keeping old packaging.

  14. Make the video! Hahaha, seriously, all your videos, blogs & comics are just awesome!

  15. Haha Most restaurant buy their at the same kaisha maybe :) But I do think that this warm towel culture thing is worth mentionning it really shows the way business owners care for the costumer here :)

    People will watch or read comics. It’s all good. :)

  17. I do this tooo! Please make the video!!!!! Make those of us who do it too not feel so crazy. :D

  18. If I can watch Simon and Martina talk about a toilet, I can certainly watch a video about you talking about oshibori

  19. Grace, go with your gut and make the vid. I’d watch and I’m sure I’m not the only one. You wondered about your “Day in the Life” vids. People will watch.
