A model wears Triumph International’s “Grow-Your-Own-Rice bra” in Tokyo on Wednesday. The bra, which transforms into a rice growing kit, allows the wearer to cultivate rice anytime, anywhere. It was created in hopes that more people will become familiar with farming and develop awareness of the importance of agriculture, the lingerie maker said.

    hai hai because as we all know so very well.. rice growing and bras go perfect together! lol Sex being used to sell farming.. hmmmmmmn well oki oki sekushi rice farming.. sekushi girl.. but square chest? iya.. no no she should have used round pots i think (^.~) smooth milky white clay pots.. they would have been heavier but would have accented her shape and looked more natural.. being round and made of earth yes? And i am certain that if they became 2 heavy she could find help 2 carry them from some future farmer ne?

    So - the sparkly spangles are to keep bird from eating the 'sprouting' rice then?

    I don't know... this one is not particularly appealing. Last year's was a lot better. Do they have bigger planters for those with bigger busts? and are they still square then, too? or more fitting to the human form? Hopefully the smooth out the plastic edges!

    Those reflective coins will bounce more light onto the rice, as will her sweaty flesh. Great idea.

    Just when you thought Japan couldn't get any stranger... along comes a rice-growing bra.

    Those can't possible be comfortable, can they?

    Next thing you know, she'll get the award for "Best Riceist"

    Seeing the photo, I first believed that was the latest version of the "grow your breast gadget" you find on sale in the last pages of catalogues. Well, that's not better...

    Surely this girl is not thick and illustrates well the risk of rice penury.

    Fukuyama, the skin and the teeth get as white as you want thanks to a bleaching product and a good photoshopping.

    The problem, of course, is acreage: a typical westerner would yield a much higher harvest just based on area alone. If the government is serious about this, a national movement to increase breast size is the only option; and though but a foreigner, I, for one, am happy to assist in any way.

    ChopstickMaster, I bet you would get tired of ploughing. I honestly got tired of it and am glad I gave it over to my kid to harvest the field. Am speaking from my own experience though. I hope you know what I am talking about.

    So, its a campaign of growing rice on bra! There won't be any short of volunteer farmers.

    LOL. Ya got to love the rice seedlings holstered in her water hose belt. Are those six-shooter bra cups?

    She doesn't look too sure about this bra as she feels the need to support the planter halves with her hands.

    This pic makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Laughing because its so damned silly, and crying that its also so damned stupid.

    OK, usually I say that Japan is similar to other places. But this fascination with bras is rather unique. What is up with that?

    In the meantime I'll just go with it and suggest that I am available to help with weeding.

    Cute girl, too.

    If that's true, meronsoda, then Japan truly is a Utopian paradise. You have to look pretty hard elsewhere to find even 30-year-olds with looks like the model in this picture.

    The cute looking model was not whacky, it was the Triumph people for wanting the photo taken. The model was making money in said stupid ad so good for her.

    Fadamor

    Agreed. The model didn't choose the outfit, Triumph did. All she had to do was wear the silly thing and get her paycheck. Thumbs-up to her for making the best of an absolutly silly situation.

    with a lovely navel ring she would be much nicer...;)

    Yeah, totally disagree. Always think those look like crap. She looks beautiful as is, though that "bra" is pretty wacky. Still good for her, collecting a paycheck for a silly outfit.

    Sheesh, I HATE beating a dead horse, but WHERE is the guy with the grow your rice underwear or "jock protector" thing. (sorry, losing my English being here so long). I mean, what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Please chavenistic old zombie Businessmen, PLEASE realize that 50% of the population here are women and that they want the rice-growing-stupid-stuff you are peddling (in VAIN--I mean how many sakes did they drink to come up with this INSANE ASS crap to promote agriculture) for men! I mean, there might be 3% of men that might just like to grow some rice down there for the sake of Japan, you know.
