From @kishaburaku. This just happened on July 22nd at JR Minami Urawa Station, Saitama. Over-crowded Japanese trains could be sometime be useful since you get so many people helping in emergency!

From @shoko55mmts. This is not really an "everyday life" sort of photo, but it's quite freaky! Shoko Nakagawa performed at a live concert with this hair woven with cicada cast-off shells, and reportedly she threw some of those shells at her audience from the stage as fan service.
