EA does a great job of keeping SimCity Social exciting and action-packed with new themes and challenges. This week mayors of SimCities all across Facebook are invited to adopt some Eastern culture with Japan week. The SimCity Social Japan theme comes with several new missions and items.

New SimCity Missions for Japan Week
Brad has gone off to Japan to learn firefighting techniques to better protect your SimCity. To help him complete his quest, you are asked to complete these missions. The first two missions available are:
- Mushy Monsters
- Rising Sun
After you complete those, several more become available. I’ll cover those in a future post.
Who Needs a Giant Cat?
The Giant Neko is an oversized version of a classic good-luck charm found in shops across Japan. The arm movement of the cat is supposed to summon money or business into the shop. Are you going to get one for your SimCity?
