Some of their Slow Business articles also mention alternative currency called "zen", a nice wordplay on the yen.

The Sloth Club's work has been profiled in Treehugger, 350.org's It's Getting Hot In Here blog, Kyoto Journal, New Colonist, and Metropolis - but none of those articles are recent, and their work is spread across several websites of varying translation quality, so I thought it might be helpful to have a recent synopsis of their activities in a single blog post.
Inspiring stuff! I can't wait to check out Cafe Slow while I'm in Tokyo.
