There is a place on the Yamanote line called Sugamo. It’s sometimes called the “Granny’s Harajuku” and it’s filled with clothes shops only a grandma would enjoy. There is also another thing Sugamo is famous for: Akapants (red panties). They supposedly bring you good health if you wear them. I wouldn’t know, I didn’t try them out. :p

The AKAP Italian-Egyptian mission led by Maria Carmela Gatto from Yale University and Antonio Curci from Bologna University stumbled upon what is believed to be the oldest case of scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) in the world, dated to the era 3,800-3,600 BC.
Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty announced today that scientific examination of a recently discovered skeleton of a one-year-old child reveals a change in the shape of the bones, which in turn indicates that the child was suffering scurvy. Read more.
