    Well, I didn't taste them, and I didn't read the label, but they were definitely green. Not red or yellow or gold.

    I wholeheartedly support this store and urge everyone requiring such items to give your custom to them, posthaste.

    And then post photos.

    Someone was going to say it, it might as well have been me. Look how nice I am, throwing myself on that social-grenade for all of you.
    For relaxing times when ITIL explodes, make it Japanistan time. (Actually, don't, it's broken forever)

    Are there any places like the flyingpig that have European brand foods? Especially carbonated mineral water?

    American Eagle Outfitters Ships to Japan. I used them a few times. The shipping is a bit pricey, but if you get a large shipment it sometimes ends up being cheaper than if you shipped it through a family member. It was a good way to get things like winter jackets, shoes, and other stuff if you have trouble finding stuff that will fit you. They have a pretty good clearance section.

    It's so nice to have the body type of a skinny Japanese male

    Well, this is kind of the other end of the spectrum, but if you're a US size 13 or above, you can order from http://www.oddball.com/cascades/ . They're based in America, but I've ordered from them a couple times since I've been here. They also have Big and Tall apparel that actually comes close to being fashionable! It gets pretty expensive after shipping/tariffs, but at size 16 I don't have much of a choice.
    The plight of big feet in Japan. I know the feeling being a size 15.

    Jusco stocks Perrier and other assorted mineral/carbonated waters.

    Some for the Aussie girls:

    www.fountaincosmetics.com.au - some Australian cosmetics, including discounts on Napolen, Becca, etc

    www.epharmacy.com.au - Pretty much sells anything you can get at the chemist

    www.bluefly.com - Seriously addictive. Sells designer wear,

    www.mycatwalk.com.au - clothes/accessories

    www.freez.com.au - cothes

    www.mico-mico.com - cute jewellry

    www.etsy.com - hand-made jewellry

    www.mimco.com.au - divine handbags and accessories (YES they ship to Japan! Yay)

    I really like this site for t-shirts. They've got some nice designs on them.
