I was thinking the same thing..

I'm sure that "big" was a typo. It *has* to be a typo. There's no way in hell it's NOT a typo...

They do have a magnum-sized brand (I think they're called "black" :/ ) but they cost about 2-3 times as much as normal condoms.

..and if it's not a typo, it's certainly nothing to boast about!

Don't you just love Engrish?
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Uhmm.... wouldn't you want/need condoms, unless you REALLY don't want one, anytime??

PASMO

Hot enough for what? What do you mean by "chili"? I found that most spicy dishes are not hot enough for my taste so I usually add some additional spice such as shichimi togarashi or similar that many restaurants have on the table.
How bout the food? how the ramen taste will be different?? Do I need to bring cup noodle?
You can buy cup noodles in most convenience stores.

Yes. No.
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Good luck finding anything that can properly be called chili. Forget chili. Go into a CoCo Ichibanya curry house and order a plate of curry-rice at #2 spiciness. That will be more than spicy enough, I'm sure, and if not there are six more levels.

Cup noodle in Japan tastes like cup noodle anywhere else. And the all taste quite different from an actual bowl of ramen that you get in a rament shop.
