The puzzle this week is to identify what is in this picture:
Anyone who has lived in or visited Japan should recognize this, so the real challenge this week is to give me the official Japanese name and one additional name (two different names total). Earn your beer with a little research.
The prize if you win? One can of 100% barley malt beer – e.g. Ebisu, Suntory Malts, Asahi Premium. (New rule: you must physically track me down and demand your beer to redeem it.)
Please do not post your answer in the comments. Send it to me via email or facebook. My email address is るぱんさんせい (romanized) at-mark gmail dot com.
