It's simple i live in the 3rd floor. I'll hang it from the balcony.

I guess this will be self-selective in a way since the only people who'll be able to afford the inevitably huge price tag are those with big enough houses to hang it up.

Or I guess they could put in on the floor and use it as a gigantic carpet.

I'd use it as my blanket to sleep with. =3

Amazing post.

I was hoping it would be a bit more spectacular but I can't say I wouldn't want it.

So, how much is the initial price tag?

I am going to guess 30,000-50,000 yen but it is probably a lot more expensive..

DO WANT

Aug 14, 2009 2:43 AM by Corpse69

I can't even make sense of the picture...

Even with bad economy, there are still Japanese people with money to BURN...probably with a wall to match.

edit-

70,000 円?! OMG! Bet more people of Japan!
