肉の日 Kinnikuman Day ~ Friday 4/29

The 6th official Kinnikuman Day takes place this month on Friday the 29th in Harajuku, Japan.  Friday the 29th is a bit of a word play in Japanese that cleverly works out to represent Kinniku day... The "kin" in kinyoubi/Friday, coupled with the "ni/2" and "ku/9," of the 29th = Kin-ni-ku ~


The theme this time around is "Burning Inner Strength." The message for Kinnikuman fans on this day is to look within to find the strength and courage needed to rebuild Japan and help the victims of the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami.
