 Many laguages one meaning :D

If I have chance, I will have a visit in Japan. Actually, I'm full of curiosity and worship about Japanese culture.

I think the trip to Japan will be pleased and unforgettable.

 I love the japanese culture... I ♥ Japan

I have been there a year ago. I went to Nagoya, Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Miyajima. It was amazing trip for me. 

I saw lots of temples, gardens, parks. I also went to museums. All places were amazing. Especially Tokyo Ghibli Museum and Kyoto Tezuka's museum. It's important to saw these museums because I love their animations and manga s. 

Actually I'm trying to come again. So that I'm trying to learn japanese, and seaching japanese culture. 

It's too enjoyful to discover new things about their culture. 



In the future, a car will change.
It is a vehicle. We use it for carrying.
It will become a home battery.
We do not need to buy energy from electronics power companies.
We get energy from cars.
Car will change our life.


Prime minister will change soon.
From when do we do as the other person’s opinion,
do we do only easy things?
We do not think about ourselves.


I went to Tokyo on business trip.
I like to see cloud and mountain from
Shinkansen  indows.
Because shape of cloud is always different.  
And the mountains donot change the shape.
We live among things that always change and
never change.


It is interesting to read a past sentence.
I am read the diary which I wrote three years ago.
What change my mind? In what part of things do I change?
Anyway, Recording is important, I think.
Reading the past diary, I can return to the past time like time machine.

Recently,I often see the English topics on the business magazines

in Japan.

Because some Japanese companies start to use English  as a

common language.


There are many people who complain "hot ,tired"

But there are little  people who fight against "hot,tired"

I'm so sad to hear news about chinese train accident.

I am happy!!

They are amazing. Thank you!!

Earthquake is so terrible

Hapa Izakaya at 1479 Robson Street

When Hapa Izakaya opened in 2003 at Robson Street, it was one of the first establishments to introduce original Japanese dishes in an izakaya atmosphere to Vancouver. Today, their Robson location is three times as large as it used to be in 2003, and branch restaurants are also found in Vancouver's trendy Kitsilano and Yaletown districts.

Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Hapa Izakaya stands out with its minimalist exterior (like a Gion teahouse, barely recognizable as a restaurant) and stylish interior, as well as its original dishes, whose style have inspired a lot of newer izakaya style restaurants in Vancouver over the years.

Tsukune Skewers

Hapa Izakaya fascinated me back in 2003 with never before experienced dishes such as saba (mackerel) seared at the table. Maybe our choices today were not the luckies, but we felt that the originality of Hapa's dishes has dwindled a little bit since 2003 (or other restaurants have caught up to it and raised our expectations). Nevertheless, we enjoyed our dinner there a lot.

Bintoro Tataki

We started off with Bintoro Tataki, a beautifully simple dish of seared tuna sashimi on an excellent vinaigrette sauce. Many of the other dishes were good but not outstanding, including the Shrimp and Avocado Salad and the Monsa Roll. Another highlight of the night was Kakuni, slow simmered pork, which was served in an original way with nikuman style steamed buns.

Monsa Roll

For a long time, Japanese cuisine in Vancouver was virtually limited to sushi and a few other standard dishes such as tempura. While sushi restaurants are still by far most numerous today, various other restaurant types have tried to introduce their dishes to Vancouver over recent years. Some have struggled, such as okonomiyaki, curry and Japanese pasta restaurants, but others have enjoyed great success, such as izakaya and ramen restaurants.

Today we visited Zakkushi, the pioneering restaurant to introduce Vancouver to kushiyaki, skewered foods grilled over charcoal. Zakkushi opened in summer 2004 at 823 Denman Street and has opened two more locations since then in Kitsilano and at Main Street.

Aspara Maki (Asparagus wrapped with pork)

I failed twice to dine at Zakkushi before, because the restaurant's popularity makes it difficult to get in without reservations. But today we finally enjoyed our first dining experience there. As soon as the charcoal smell of my first yakitori skewer entered my nose, I understood the restaurant's unbroken popularity: Zakkushi can easily compete with good kushiyaki restaurants in Japan. Their yakitori are excellent!

Tsukune (chicken meat balls)

Zakkushi features mostly conventional dishes, centered around the typical range of yakitori (grilled chicken on skewers), including tsukune (meat ball), momo (thigh), liver, heart and gizzard. The menu is complemented with a variety of appetizers and tapas style dishes and a sophisticated selection of alcoholic drinks. It is one of Vancouver's few Japanese restaurants that does without sushi on its menu.

Cheese mochi maki (rice cakes wrapped by pork and topped with cheese)

hellow everyone.recently,I have to prepare a lecture about Chinese culture simple.I konw some of you are Japanese.Please tell me when sb say China what is your first impression or what do you think can represent China.Thankyou
