After yesterday's いいニーハイの日, we have another special day in Japan. What is it? It's the いい肉の日 (nice meat day).

The name, just like the nice knee-high day the day before, is a play on pronunciation. The phrase "nice meat", which is pronounced as "ii niku", is similar to pronunciation for "1129", hence 29th November is the "Nice Meat Day". Japanese twitter users post a lot of pictures to go with this day.

Looking and posting these images makes me really want to crave for meat. Ack, meat day or not, I want some now! -q-


  1. Reminds me when I went out last night to dinner. They were selling 'American Style" Kobe burgers. What a lie that was as it should be called what it is - fake!

    1. Haha unfortunately lots of restaurants these days sell a lot of food that are good in their names only. The rest of it are, well, nothing one should have high expectations of!
