This is my first game host post!! And to top that, this is a BRAND NEW holiday added to this year's game. No pressure or anything....*takes a few deep breaths*

 

So if you are like me, growing up in the 1980s, Japan and it's culture had a real renaissance here in the US. From manga to video games to cuisine, Japan was leading the younger generation in terms of culture and art, much like the Korean Cool phenomenon that happened a few years ago.
