Mail order mushi

The post offices in Japan aren’t just for buying stamps and posting letters, but also stock a huge range of leaflets advertising mail order shopping services. Not just your average tupperware and mens casual shoes mail order, ohnosiree. These are for everything from melons to pickles to sausages, and a number of other weird things inbetween, including… insects (mushi, in Japanese).

Mail order crickets

These tanks of crickets even come with fake plants and a couple of rocks, for that authentic insect habitat vibe. I, for one, definitely won’t be placing an order anytime soon!
