New Zealand

I went to New Zealand (NZ) for a week.
The weather was similar to Seattle in winter. But it was a good trip.
I went to Christchurch, Rotorua, Waitomo, and Auckland from south to north.

The photos were taken in 1) Christchurch, 2) Rotorua and 3) Waitomo.

I found some pictures I practiced drawing over 10 years ago when I was tidying up my desk. It was when I was a high school student. I was a member of Karate-Club. However, I practice drawing pictures, not Karate. Because, I was inspired by some friends and a teacher. There were some friends who were good at drawing Manga around me, and my Japanese teacher used to be a Manga Author.
I was really bad at drawing pictures at first. But I practiced every day with them.

Ohh,, it brings back good memories.
I cannot draw pictures like these without any supports though...

I had a party with my friends.
A friend of mine is a sheaf for Japanese food. He cooked us Japanese hot noodle called Kamo-Nanban at the party.
The noodle is more expensive than usual ones. Because making the soup takes 6 hours and the meat is duck which is not so common in Japan.

However, this time it was free of charge!
What's more it was YUMMY!!

Do you know Robata-Yaki?
Robata-Yaki is not a food.

It’s a Japanese traditional style of serving foods.
Robata means oven-farm. Yaki means grill.

I went to a Robata-Yaki restaurant called Robata-Ya with BJ and Naoko. Although I am Japanese it was my first time going to the kind of the restaurant.

The foods were delicious what’s more the entertainments were great. They grilled foods in front of us and gave us foods using a thick stick. A water talked to us telling us about Robata-Yaki too.

I think 70% or 80% of the customers were from other countries. I am wondering how they found the restaurant.

If you come to Japan, I will take you there. It will give you good memories for sure.

This is the web site.

New life in Japan

My Seattle life finished and I was back to Japan on May 31.
It was sad saying “good bye” to my friends in Seattle. I wished the word “good bye” would disappear.

Anyway, I am in Japan now.

I went to Tokyo last Friday. People in Japan are very busy.
When I stopped to check the map, many people bumped me and said
Keep walking!!

Ohh, scary...

I wanted to forget about it. So, I went to a hot-spring resort near to
Mt Fuji the next day.

It was super nice.

I drunk Sake on our way home after the hot-spring, because my friend drove the car.Hot-spring and Sake are my favorite. (^o^)/

The picture is Spring Pond called Waku-Ike near to Mt Fuji.
Melted snow from Mt Fuji gushes out there. The water is very clear and the scenery is Japanese traditional style. I like it.

Finished Study

I have finished all my study in Seattle!! (>_<)/
Thank you for your support.

It was the last class for Corporate Finance.
Unusually the class was full today.
I did not realize so many students still had taken the class.
(I have seen them once or twice in class.)

They paid for the class, because they wanted to study, right?
Hummm, I cannot understand why they did not attend the class most of the time.
They must be rich. They do not care even if they waist money.

BTW, I spoke Japanese after a long time. Nigel introduced me to a Japanese guy who will be a PhD student at UW. He must be super smart like Nigel.

I guess, I should study hard as well.
But I want to take a rest for a while. (If it's possible, forever...)

Test, test, test...
Ohhhhh, I am sick of taking tests!!

I took an English exam called TOEIC last Saturday, and I took a quiz in my Corporate Finance class this Monday.

I did not do well both tests.
I lost my confidence. (I had not had it though..)

I need to relax for a while.
It’s been good weather these days. So, I think I should go somewhere.
Somebody, take me somewhere!!

I was at home all day long today cleaning my room and other rooms though it was nice weather.
Last Saturday, I stayed Nigel’s at place and we were drinking until 5am next morning. (It was fun!!)
But it's Not healthy. Don’t you think so?

“The Law of Yosshi” has begun

I am declaring my Blog “The Law of Yosshi” has begun.

Humm,,However, what should I write for the first?
Well, first of all, I am going to introduce myself.

I am Yosshi from Japan. I am living in Seattle now, though I will return to Japan on May 30th.
The picture is me. I might have drawn too good-looking.
Hehehe. (Never mind.)

I like Sake, hot springs, and anime.I recommend you watch an anime called Saikano. It’s a kind of love romance anime. You will like it unless you prefer violence.(^^;

Anyway, Nice to meet you. (^^)
