Hi!!! lol... This is the first time I've posted a comment on any of your blogs, and I'd just like to say that you're a really good blogger!!! :P

Lol... Even waiting 10 mins in a queue is long enough for me!!! But Kripsy Kremes are real nice lol... HeHe!!! The amount of time and the length of the queue that some of those Tokyoites don't seem to care about is really funny!!! ^^ But it really gets me thinking... Tokyo city life is said to be fast paced right? When it's not Golden Week, where do they find the time for joining these long queues?!?!?!

Stay cool!

OMG that is way too long I would never ever wait in line that long for donuts. Yeah it is Krispy Kreme and all but.....I guess they never had name brand donuts or something??? Also do you have family in Georgia?

LMAO! I've passed that queue a few times and I think they're all nuts. I mean, I've never tasted a Krispy Kreme but, well, it's so Japanese to queue for a donut, isn't it? And in the freezing cold a few months back too. Insane. But predictable!

BTW - the music is VERY apt!

Hey! I've been reading your blog but this is the first time I'm commenting.
Another guy talked about this in his video blog and someone commented that in Australia, when their krispy kreme opened they had to wait about 3 hours to get in. ^^ and they waited in cars to get through the drive thru. haha. I just think they (japanese) don't mind waiting so long to try something new, not that they're just crazy for donuts.

btw, I love your posts, they're really interesting, they make me wanna see japan for myself!

I love these types of observations. This is like back in the day when people lined up for the opening of a new Krispy Kreme store and KKD's stock price was still flying high. Maybe this international popularity finally marks the beginning of KKD's recovery.

You'll have to act fast if you want to open your own franchise though. Bloomberg says Krispy Kreme Doughnut Japan Co. plans to open 40 stores in Japan over the next 5 years.

No Way !
I do not even think they are all that!

To each his/her own.
