The "God of Akihabara" plays this game better than we do just about anything!
One of Japan's most famous gamers tops all other performances we've ever seen by marching and drumming up a storm, clearing the song without looking at the screen.

The original hands-free Pokémon Go device was great...but it didn't account for rainy weather. Sanjun may have come up with a solution though!

Cats with mouse ears are actually way cuter than we even could have imagined!

The popular app is sweeping through the country, transforming dogs and cats into cute new creatures with round and furry mouse-style ears.

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!
