Tips to Get Cash in Japan

main_image02.jpg

 

In Japan most ATM do not accept bank cards and credit cards

issued in other countries even if it is mega bank's ATM.
They accept domestic cards only.It's very inconvenient for visitors...

But no worries!

Look for Seven Eleven(convenience store) .

ATMs in Seven Eleven accept foreign country issued cards.
You can get cash anytime!In addition Japan Postal Bank's ATMs

also accept other country issued cards.

    GHOST DAY

    | | TrackBacks (0)


    Tomorrow's a day of the ghosts in Japan.


    It comes from that "Yotsuya ghost story" was given the first public performance in Tokyo Nakamura Kabuki theater on July 26, 1825.


    "Yotsuya ghost story" is the ghost story which is famous in Japan.




    It is a general image that a Japanese ghost does not have a foot.

    But why Japanese ghost have no foot?



    As for the overseas ghost, a thing same as a figure during the lifetime seems to be most.




    Is not it mysterious?


    Can you ask about a reason?

    Woman who has  long hair peeping out over your shoulder,and behind you now.



    How is image of ghost in your country?

    Day of the Ox

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    Have you ever eaten eel?

    Today is "the day of the ox." Japanese often eat eel on the day of the ox.

    Why eat EEL on the day of the OX?
    It is said that eel restaurants put the sign up saying
    "it is better to eat something starts with U on the day of the ox. (Ox is "Ushi," eel is "Unagi" in Japanese.) So let's eat eel!"

    Well, ox and eel are not quite the same, but eel is delicious! (to me, anyway.) If you haven't tried one yet, please give it a try!

     About 20min walk from our hotel,you will see an outstanding building in
    Inogashira street.

    It's Tokyo Camii,which is the biggest Turkish mosque in Tokyo.
    The interior decoration is made by Turkish craftsmen.

    Non-Muslims are welcome to see inside the mosque.
    In 1st floor there are a meeting place,a souvenir shop
    and Tukish culture centre.

    Coming up to 2nd floor,you see a huge praying hall with splended
    decoration.You can come in except praying times.

    My favourite is a terrace just outside the praying hall.
    Breeze is so nice here!

    Green curtains not only shield buildings from the strong summer sunlight, but also cool the air as it comes through the curtain because of the plant transpiration. 


    Many plant shops run out of goya seeds, relatively easy to grow, even for gardening beginners.

    Mount Fuji Trekking

    3776m high Mt.Fuji opened at 1 July.
    I went there to get to the summit.
    As it was still rainy season,most of passengers in a bus to Mt.Fuji 5th station
    from Shinjuku West bus terminal were foreign tourists.

    I started climbing at 10:30PM.It was so windy!!
    Above 7th station it became like a storm.

    I got to main 8th station at 3400m around 3:30AM,there still was a thick and chilly fog.
    As I knew all mountain huts after here were still closed,I finally gave up getting to the peak.

    I don't have any photos this time.
    I took the video in the descending route.You see it was still very windy!

    I will try again in this season.

    It was my birthday yesterday.
    I hadn't told my co-workers and was so busy at work all day that I almost forgot about it myself.

    Suddenly Keiko told me to come to the staff room because she wanted to talk about something. The light went off, and as I turned around Ai and Michiko (from Sakura House main office) came in with the cutest birthday cake ever, complete with candles and everything! Even my name was written on it! And they had bought some beautiful flowers as well.

    I was so surprised!

    July 7th was "Tanabata" in most of the parts of Japan.
    I went to pre-opening ceremony of Hiratsuka Tanabata Festival.

    I said "pre" because the actual festival events took place from July 8th to July 10th.

    At the ceremony, there was a prayer for safety and success of the festival.

    They also introduced "Orihime." They were more like campaign ladies though.

    Nagoya

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    Letztes Wochenende war ich mit einem Freund in Nagoya. Es war meine erste kleine Reise seit ich im Februar nach Japan gekommen bin und mein erstes Mal in Nagoya. Ich hab mich riesig darauf gefreut mal aus Tokyo herauszukommen. So sehr es mir in Tokyo normalerweise gefaellt, es kann manchmal schon ganz schoen eng werden zwischen den ganzen Menschenmassen und Haeuserschluchten einer Mega-Metropole.

    Nagoya hingegen hat mich fast ein bisschen an Berlin erinnert an manchen Stellen. Die Haeuser standen nicht so extrem dicht an dicht wie in Tokyo und waren nicht so hoch. Es wirkte irgendwie alles etwas geraeumiger.

    Das bin ich vor dem Schloss in Nagoya. Der Fisch soll eigentlich ein Delphin sein, mein Kumpel hat ihn mir aber als seinen Goldfisch vorgestellt. ;)

    Das hier ist ein Coffee Shop, der in Nagoya sehr bekannt und beliebt ist. Sie haben wirklich eine interessante Auswahl an Kaffee dort. Ich hatte welchen mit Zimt und Schlagsahne, der einfach nur toll geschmeckt hat.

    Leider hatte ich nicht viel Zeit fuer Sightseeing. Gegessen habe ich dafuer umso mehr. Ich hab glatt 2 Kilo zugenommen uebers Wochenende. ^^; Auf dem ersten Bild seht ihr Misokatsu, frittiertes Schweinefleisch mit Miso. Ich kann euch sagen, es hat unglaublich geschmeckt! Auf dem zweiten Bild seht ihr Ramen. Die koennte ich sowieso jeden zweiten Tag essen.

    Es war wirklich ein super Wochenende! Am liebsten waere ich direkt weiter durch Japan getourt, aber die Arbeit rief. Na ja, die naechste Reise kommt bestimmt. :)

    Reliable partner

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    It's muggy.

     

    I feel anxious if I could survive hot summer lies ahead.

     

    Today, I'd just like to introduce a reliable partner for summer in Japan.

     

    It is the wind-bell. 

     

    It is made of metal, glass or pottery.

    When the wind blows, it produces the sound that makes us feel cool.

     

    I feel the heat eased when I hear the sound of wind-bell.

    Onsen!

    Do you like Onsen? (Hot spa?) I do! (^^)

    I went to Nikko last weekend. Nikko - Kinugawa area has one of the best onsens in Japan.

    At Kinugawa-Onsen station, you can take a foot bath.

    One of my favorite is Meotobuchi Onsen. Here, you can enjoy more than 10 different kinds of Roten-buro. (Outdoor bath). It is about an hour and a half away from Kinugawa Onsen station by bus.

    And... If you go to Nikko area, be sure to eat Yuba (Tofu based) dinner! It's delicious!

    To go to Nikko from our hotel, there is a direct train that leaves from Shinjuku station. For more info visit Tobu Railways website↓

    And if you decide to stop by in Asakusa on the way from or back from Nikko, be sure to stay at our sister hostel in Asakusa!↓

    Hello!I'm Yoshi.

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    Hi,there!

    I am Yoshitaka,a new receptionist.I came here in mid June.

    I lived in Aizuwakamatsu,Fukushima prefecture before I moved to Tokyo.
    It's my hometown which is 100km away from the nuclear plants.

    Although the city is very famous sightseeing spot among Japanese,
    the tourism and farming are seriously damaged by the accidents.
    I hope that it will recover from the disaster soon.

    I've travelled over 50 countries in this 15 years.
    I am glad to help tourists from other countries to travel in Japan.


    Yoshi

    Tanabata

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    Have you heard of the Japanese Tanabata festival?


    Once upon a time in the universe, the stars Orihime (the weaving princess) and Hikoboshi (cow herder star) met and fell in love with each other.

    However, they were so much in love that, after the marriage, Orihime would no longer weave cloth and Hikoboshi would no longer herd cows.

    The god of the universe became mad, and separated the two by laying the huge Miky Wayriver between them. Ever since then, Orihime and Hikoboshi are allowed to see each other only once a year on Tanabata, the night of July 7.


    The story  is  romantic or sad??
