Japanese Manner

Foreigners who wear shoes at home might not care of this, but Japanese have a unique manner during taking off shoes at entrance. We have to take off shoes facing to the house because of not showing our back to hosts, then crouch and turn the shoes to the entrance and align them neatly by hand.

The best memory of my travel

In 1998, the outdoor music festival wasn't as major as now. I didn't know what it was and participated one in Nagano alone with casual clothes. It rained at night and I got immersed the sound outside without any outdoor equipment, then I got soaked. The next day, I stunk with a damp on the shuttle bus to the near station and a foreigner next me cursed something. I remembered it best.

Baked blowfish with Sansho

Many people might know "Tettiiri" and "Tessa" as blowfish cuisine. When I was a child, my father liked baked blowfish with Japanese pepper, Sansho. They burned Sansho with it, and it smelled bad for me. It was the first experience of Sansho for me, then I hated it. But now I love Sansho.

Hair cut

I cut my hair at a 1,000 yen barber shop in Kobe about two weeks ago. QB House is famous for 1,000 yen barber in Japan, but it was the other one. You can't request elaborate hairstyles in such cheaper shops, so I ordered to cut it very short on the sides and back and leave it bit longer on the top and front.

I have no plan to celebrate Halloween, but I wish I had opportunities to do so. It must be definitely enjoyable to spend with friends together with funny costume. I don't care about its real meaning or history. I think just such kinds of interaction are worth for my life.
