じゃんけんぽん | Jan-Ken-Pon | It’s Weekend! Ready for a Challenge?


It’s weekend! And I m sure you have had one of those intense weeks filled with lots of  challenging issues to take care of and now I am sure you are feeling like giving your mind a little rest. It’s okay. But not too much! You still need to work on your mental skills.  We need you back on Monday and we all need you to be even smarter than last week, don’t you agree? :)

じゃんけんぽん – Jan-Ken-Pon  was a popular game in the 18th century in Japan.  Today most of us call it Rock-Paper-Scissors or RPS.  for a bit of history about its origins visit (and support!) Rock-Paper-Scissors in Wikipedia.

For our readers in Tokyo, or for those of you world travelers,  make it a Theme Day and plan for a lunch out at the Jan-Ken-Pon restaurant, or go play Jan-Ken-Pon with the waitresses at any of the most famous Maid cafés, an example of exhilarating cosplay restaurants in Akihabara district.

Here is the nifty little app that I’ve rescued from the NYT archives. It’s a very addictive game. Ready? ;)
