Mythical Tales

When Akinori and I were sitting around the other night eating raw horse meat, he said he was always surprised by the mythical tales he heard foreigners say about Japan, about shops selling all sorts of bizarre things. As an example of such a mythical tale, he mentioned how people in the States would ask him about bars in Tokyo that sell oxygen as a refreshment. Now, I don't know what the shop in the photo above is selling, but at the very least I can understand where someone might get the idea of Oxygen Bars.
