I got rid of my JapaneseLanguageFoodCulture.com
site. I transferred all the language information from the
site to this site hoping my kids will use it to study the
Japanese language. Hopefully those of you with an interest in learning Japanese
will visit these pages occasionally. And enjoy a few
interesting videos showing a bit about Japanese culture.
These pages explain the Japanese language
in the simplest possible terms. After graduating from San Diego
State University with a business degree, and after retiring
from real estate appraising at age 40, I returned to college
and obtained an associates degree in Japanese studies. I was
really fascinated with the Japanese writing system and made
hundreds of pages of vocabulary and thousands of graphics of
Japanese kana and kanji. I transferred all of this from my
JapaneseLanguageCultureFood.com site to this site. I am
beginning to study the language again and I am hoping my
kids will use these pages for their study as well.
Japanese food is without a doubt, the best in the world, not to
mention the healthiest. The food was high up there on the list of
reasons why we moved to Japan. The variety is simply unbelievable.
Add to this the fact that my wife Akiko is a fantastic chef makes it
all the more better. As with other pages of this Japanese section I
plan to add a lot, but for now, please enjoy these delicious videos.

Japanese street food - okonomiyaki
Okonomiyaki o-konomi-yaki is a Japanese savory pancake containing a variety of
ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning "how you like"
or "what you like", and yaki meaning "grill". Okonomiyaki is mainly associated
with the Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout
the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region. In Tokyo,
there is a semi-liquid okonomiyaki called 'monjayaki.'
I plan to write volumes about Japanese culture. For now
enjoy these videos which show only a few of the many reasons why we got the F**K
out of America and are now permanently residing in Japan.
And yup we spent some bucks and got one of these bidet
toilets installed in our home. Cost the equivalent of $1,000
U.S. currency, about the same price as our little farm bus,
and has been worth every yen....no shit.
America Vs Japan: Toilets
Public bathrooms in Japan put America to shame.
America vs Japan: Adulting
Our schools should teach basic life skills like Japan does.
America Vs Japan: Gun Control
More countries should follow Japan's lead when it comes to gun control.
America Vs Japan: School Lunches
Japan's unbelievable school lunches are surprisingly educational.
America Vs Japan: Subways
It’s embarrassing how clean Tokyo’s subways are compared to New York’s.
America Vs: Shoes At Home
We may want to reconsider wearing shoes inside our homes.
Why Japanese Are So Thin According to
Why are Japanese people so thin? What do people eat in Japan? While the rest of
the world is seeing anywhere from 15 to over 30% of its population severely
overweight, Japan has managed to keep that number at just 3.6%. When it comes to
health tips, it's better to turn to the country with the longest life expectancy
and one of the lowest obesity rates on the planet. If you’re ready to find out
how the Japanese manage to stay so effortlessly thin, keep our new video!
In Japan, they usually stick to 3 wholesome meals a day that don’t leave them
hungry or dealing with sudden cravings. Those who do snack keep it in small
quantities and with a lot of moderation.
Also, the secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy
and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables,
grains, fish, and meat. Dairy products and fruits are consumed in moderation.
They tend to stay away from foods with excessive amounts of salt and sugar, like
burgers and soda.
