Posted in: One year after release, Pokemon Go is fitness tool for players See in context

I myself am a big fan of Pokémon, but I don't play Pokémon GO so often. The system of the battle in Pokémon GO is quite different from that of the original game, and I don't like it.

   In contrast, my parents like Pokémon GO very much. They often go out for a walk to collect monsters. The good thing is that we have more conversations than before thanks to Pokémon GO.

  I'm waiting for my sweet Dedenne to appear, but it's going to take a while.

Posted in: No. of foreign visitors to Japan reaches 2.29 mil; record number for May See in context

It’s good news that so many people visit Japan while Japan is aiming to attract more foreign visitors.

Increase of foreign visitors will be a good chance for Japanese people to know about them. This happened to me a few months ago. I saw a group of tourists at Shinjiku Expressway Bus Terminal. They seemed to come from Indonesia or Malaysia, because the women in that group were wearing hijab. They were spreading a small rug on the floor and sitting on it. I first though that they were taking a rest there, but I noticed that they had just finished their prayer. It was a good experience for me to know how Muslims spend a daily life.

It must be more fun not only knowing about them but also talking with them and introducing Japan to them in my own words.

Posted in: Samurai chef serves ramen with a side of history at Sapporo restaurant See in context

Today most people know that Samurai and Ninja don’t exist in modern Japan but only in movies, TV dramas, or comics. Surprisingly, however, a samurai has appeared in a ramen restaurant in Sapporo, and he is fighting in the kitchen armed with his specialty. More tourists will visit this restaurant to see him and taste his ramen.

According to the Ramen Kabuto’s website, most of the ingredients are from Hokkaido, and they try not to use any chemical additive. Pork and chicken broth is used for the base of the ramen soup. It seems that Ramen Kabuto is not different from other popular ramen restaurants, except the owner is a samurai. They offer various flavors of ramen, and the most popular one is miso. I’d like to try it when I visit Sapporo sometime.
