A free Japanese class in Okinawa


Hi everyone! 

Check out this Blog post about improving your life and integration into the community though learning the language! It’s so vital to be a part of what’s going on around you through learning Japanese when living in Japan. 

A night at a resort for 50 bucks…


Okinawa is the Hawaii of Japan. I love living here and one of the winters I was able to hang out at a super fancy hotel for only 50$. I was so stoked. My friend found a deal for the Okuma Beach Resort hotel online. I wrote about this cool hotel stay in my Okuma Resort Review on Taiken. Check it out if you like.

Hi guys,

have you heard of the ancient folklores revolving around the Ryukyu kings of Okinawa? Here is an article I wrote, about the ancient stories revolving around the Goddess that came down to Ryukyu and was forced to marry…

It’s  on Taiken.co, a Japanese/English travelblog. Check it out.

 

Star Wars Rogue One at Rycom Movie theater

Gonna be honest, the movie ticket prizes in Japan are pretty savage. 1700¥ for a ticket. No matter what time or movie. If you want to enjoy 3D it’s even more, 1900¥. But seriously: it was worth it seeing the new Star Wars movie!! It was great! Go check it out, if you are contemplating on going. I looked for an eigakan (jpn for movie theater) that played it in English with Japanese subs so I would be able to understand everything and Rycom mall had a showing at night. Didn’t regret spending the money! 

The Japanese Carbonara Spagetti

Look at this beauty! I wanted to go for a pasta dish the other day when I met up for lunch with my friends at Joyfull. The Joyfull chain restaurants serve a whole lot of deliciousness and this was my first Carbonara Spagetti outside of Europe. It was quite good and the egg on top was quite different from what I am used to.

Pocari Sweat- my savior in times of heat 


When I first saw this bottle 7 years ago on my first visit to Japan I was thinking: why would anyone call his drink sweat? 

Well, here I am, laughing now. This drink saved my health a couple of times. Okinawa is hot and you sweat a lot. And sometimes water is just not enough. I know plenty of visitors who just get dehydrated by the weather here and the unexpected heat and just water can’t replenish their electrolytes. One of my friends couldn’t get well. She felt tired and exhausted. She even couldn’t keep in food and threw up regularly. 

This drink, as well as Aquarius, helped her get back to her normal help. She drank it and felt so much better. Food stayed down (gross, sorry!) and was her normal self again. I guess it’s like Powerade or another vitamin drink and I really helps when you feel dehydrated. 

I often drink it when I’m sick with fever or after sports. If you live in Japan or even Korea try it out! It will help you lots if you feel exhausted and need a bit more than water.
