mimikaki - ear scoop

A bamboo scoop used to remove excess wax from inside the ear. Ear cleaning is a symbol of intimacy and happiness and is usually done between couples or parents cleaning their children's ears.

There are places in Japan that Mimikaki services can be purchased at. Where the customer lays their head on the thighs of a young woman as she picks the wax out of your ears.

Cologne can be seen cleaning Shampoo's ears in an episode of Ranma 1/2. The picture is from volume 2 of the manga confidential confessions.
