Had the (horrifying) experience of seeing a #mukade, or Japanese Giant Centipede, in person today on the bus! Everyone scattered and yelled out "mukade mukade". But the bus driver faithfully kept going to our destination because Japan is nothing if not punctual. Turns out these critters are not only huge and awful, they are poisonous, they will bite, and they symbolize evil in Japan. 🐛
I need a cute Japanese soda from a vending machine to calm my nerves.
