Hello bugman!
Me and my boyfriend have been travelling in Japan now for 7 months. We came here originally for the birds but the huge variety of strange, colourful and giant insects have been stealing the show a bit.
This guy flew down off a tree, looking closely at its face we decided it was the funniest bug we had seen all trip, so that seems like a good place to start.
I would like to send more if that’s okay?

Hi Ellie,
This is an Acorn Weevil in the genus
Curculio, but our quick research did not determine which species are found in Japan.  You can find information on BugGuide regarding North American species that might be helpful for you.
