The almanac of weird hobbies


My mom just sent me this delightful little Japanese book called The Almanac of Weird Hobbies, which I first read about on my friend Ichiru's blog a couple of weeks ago. It's a great collection of quirky Japanese people who have totally off-the-wall hobbies, like playing two recorders simultaneously with both nostrils and turning PCs into miniature greenhouses. Not surprisingly, extreme ironing and bedhead documentation were also featured in this book. There are some other great examples, some of which I hope to post here or on TokyoMango over the next couple of days.
