Modern Day Samurai

Samurai (侍) were the military nobility of pre-industrial Japan.

Historically, katana (刀) were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords (日本刀 nihontō) that were worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan, also commonly referred to as a “samurai sword”.

Shimeji (Japanese language: シメジ, 占地) is a group of edible mushrooms native to East Asia, but also found in northern Europe.

London Boots Ichi-gō Ni-gō (ロンドンブーツ1号2号, meaning “London Boots #1 #2”) are a Japanese comedy duo (kombi) that originally performed manzai-style stand-up, but now are mainly known for their TV appearances and as hosts of a handful of off-the-wall variety shows. The two members are Atsushi Tamura (田村淳) and Ryō Tamura (田村亮), and though they have the same surname, there is no relation and they in fact come from very different backgrounds. By the late 90’s, London Boots, or Lonboo (ロンブー, ronbÅ«) as they are often called in Japan, had already landed a spot as the hosts of their own show.
