A piece of paper and...Origami!!

Posted by: Bruno

Origami is a traditional Japanese art of paper folding. 


In Japan is so popular, that everybody knows how to do some figures, something that surprised me a lot at first. Then, I realized in Japan, children learn this art in the kinder garden school.

At first they learn basic things like this:

But some skilful people can do awesome figures:

I am impressed about what they can do with a piece of paper!!

¿ Por que no comer algo de sashimi?

Posted by: Bruno

Hola amigos,

El otro día os hablé del sushi, pues hoy toca el sashimi.

Sashimi1.jpg

Aún siendo un amante del sushi, tengo que reconocer que hay veces que me apetece tomar sashimi.

Sashimi es un plato de pescado crudo, normalmente acompañado de Daikon ( Nabo) cortado en hilos y cualquier otra decoración como flores comestibles, como podeis ver en esta foto... Pero lo que nunca puede faltar es el wasabi y la salsa de soja:)

Do you like sushi?

Bruno 736

Posted by: Bruno

Japan, as everyone knows, is famous for a lot of things, and one of those things is sushi.

I've always liked sushi, but the best sushi I've ever tried has been in Japan.


Here, there is a kind of sushi restaurant called Kaiten-zushi. In these restaurants the sushi dishes are already prepared and they are circulating through the table. This is great for people like me who doesn't know the fish name^^ But when I see them It's easy to chose.

Also dishes have different colours depending on their prices

Which is your favourite one? It's so difficult choice. I like specially toro. the fatty part of the tuna.

Hola amigos,


Hoy unos huéspedes se han marchado a Hakone. Hakone es una estación de esquí  situada en la perfectura de Nagano, Su nombre (白馬) significa caballo blanco y se debe a la forma que toma la ladera cuando está nevada.

Para ir hay un bus que sale de Shinjuku, y tarde 3 hores y 45 minutos. 

Hakuba.jpg
Esta estación de esquí ofrece la posibilidad de visitar uno de sus onzens que, por lo general abren 24 horas al día en temporada de invierno, ideal para entrar en calor después de un largo día bajo los preciosos paisajes nevados que nos ofrece.

energetic drinks in Japan

Bruno 733

Posted by: Bruno

Hello!!


Yesterday I felt quiet tired, so I thought an energy drink would be the solution. 

In Japan energetic drinks are really popular and there is a big variety. You can buy them in many shops and they are usually cheaper than other energetic drinks like red bull.

Specially, I like the energy drinks based on video games likes these ones:

These ones advertised by the Dragon ball characters are very popular! They are so cool!!

Another curious drink, but not useful is called UKO.

This drink avoids you to have hangover, so it's the perfect solution if you drink the last night and need to be fresh the next morning. I tried and I can say it's work^^
