This article is brought to you by the solo-grillin’ mountain folk over at Tokyo Desu.

Japanese outdoor goods retailer Doppleganger Outdoor is offering up the perfect solo grilling tool for anyone who’s contemplated becoming a mountain hermit but who lack confidence in their hunting and trapping skills.

The “Solo BBQ Grill” looks like a small briefcase and unfolds to reveal a charcoal grill just big enough for one. The marketing image for the grill suggests you use it to cook what appears to be random detritus you found in a dumpster while looking melancholy, which, let’s face it, if you’re a long-time reader of TokyoDesu, is probably what you were planning on doing this hanami season anyway.

Suggested Activity
A Journey Through Time Through Food
A 5 and a half hour, small group guided tour with 14 different tastings throughout Nihonbashi, Akihabara, and the Ginza/Tokyo Station area.

Of course, even if you’re not the Forever Alone type, the grill’s portability means you could potentially use it to cook fresh, delicious meat bits in a variety of unorthodox locations, such as at your desk at work, in bed on a lazy Sunday, or on your ex-girlfriend’s lawn while you wait for her to come home so you can fruitlessly beg her for the third time this week to take you back.
