Yes McD's is really giving away gold nuggets.
The gold prize is part of a new campaign that involves searching for clues left by a yellow-suited "Nugget Thief" at stores around the country.

Can't find the right postcard during your trip to Japan? Print your own! (And here's how:)
Create your own personalised postcards for as little as 18 cents each at 7-Eleven convenience stores in Japan.

Blast your taste buds to hell and back this summer with extreme spicy Japanese snacks.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the legendary RPG series Dragon Quest, a limited edition bottle of sake is released. But for Sir Sato, a hangover draws near!

Introduction
What is RocketNews24?
Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, RocketNews24 is a Japanese-language news blog. Since our humble launch in 2008 we’ve built a massive fan base by reporting the interesting, strange and random, much of it brought over from the English-speaking world.

Two years later, we launched our English site to bring Asia’s own brand of strange to the English-speaking world. Most of the articles we offer are translated right from our Japanese site, providing you unique stories and trivial information about Japan, by Japan.

We hope to show you that Japan and Asia are full of wonders, and, more than anything, we hope to make you smile!
