Now this is an iPod case. I'd even wear this around my neck. It's basically a lacquer iPod case that looks like the sheath of a samurai sword and is emblazoned with a badass neon chrysanthemum, which is way important when sporting white earbuds. Priced at 9800 yen, which is about $100, it's a little expensive but well worth it.
I would tell people that it holds the ashes of my former Sensei and that he comes out to help me fight the even Red Dragon Ninja and his many evil, yet surprisingly well-dressed, minions. Then they'd ask to see inside and it would just be an iPod mini and my cover would be blown.
