Shibuya Scramble Crossing

Hello everyone in the world! Today’s Japan is Sunday. It feels good to see the sun shining through the windows of the house. However, winter is approaching and the wind is getting colder.

According to yesterday’s news, a new mutant of coronavirus was found in South Africa, which is called Omicron. Will Omicron spread all over the world? Looking at the news, it seems that the coronavirus is spreading again in Europe, but in Japan, the number of corona patients is strangely decreasing, and all the Japanese media are wondering.

There are various speculations that the cause is that all the Japanese people have been vaccinated all at once, or that all the Japanese are wearing masks, but no one really knows. When I watch American and European news on TV, no one wears a mask outside, but in Japan, almost everyone wears a mask and goes out. I don’t know why this difference is made, but Japanese people like masks. (smile)

Whenever I go out, I always wear a mask when I go out, but I wonder if it makes sense to wear a mask outside, but wearing a mask is not that annoying, and it’s better to wear it than not. Some people lightly think that they are less likely to get the coronavirus.

It is often said that there is social sympathetic pressure in Japan, but I think there is probably such a tendency. I sometimes see foreigners remaining in Tokyo in the city, but they also wear masks as well as Japanese people. Perhaps they didn’t wear masks like in the US and Europe at first, but they noticed that they were seen with contempt by the Japanese around them, and I think they were reluctant to adapt to Japanese customs. increase.

Due to the coronavirus, there are almost no foreign tourists in Japan. The other day, I went to the city of Shibuya for the first time in a long time, but I hardly saw any foreigners at the scrambled intersection in front of the station. Previously, foreigners often took commemorative photos at this scrambled intersection in Shibuya, but now only Japanese people come and go. However, as the corona infection has subsided, too many people have come and gone.

Will many foreign tourists take a commemorative photo at this scrambled intersection in Shibuya? I hope that those safe and peaceful days will return. At that time, go across while listening to my original Japanese song on your smartphone.

It feels like the Beatles are crossing Abbey Road. (smile)

Natto power

By the way, everyone who doesn’t speak Japanese! Gobusatashiteorimasu. How were you Does anyone read this blog! ??
This time, I introduced it once before, but I would like to take up the Japanese food “natto” again.

What is “natto”? It is a fermented food made by fermenting soybeans with natto bacteria. When “natto” is mixed with chopsticks, it becomes sticky and gives off a unique odor. Put it on white rice and eat it. All foreigners hate this “natto”, but all Japanese people east of Tokyo love it! However, Japanese people west of Osaka don’t like “natto”. (Laughs) I have a habit of eating “natto” every morning. Each person eats “natto” by mixing various things as he likes, but I love to mix and eat the representative chopped green onions. And usually Japanese people eat “natto” with soy sauce (Japanese soul sauce! Lol), but I don’t sprinkle soy sauce! What is it! I may be Japanese, not Japanese.

And every morning, I had the “natto” rice and miso soup. Natto rice and miso soup are Japanese breakfast scenes. (Laughs) In this way, my body moves with “natto” power. English songs are good, but Japanese songs with “natto” power are also good!

I think “natto” is quietly placed in the corner of Japanese food in supermarkets around the world, so why not try it once? At that time, try eating while listening to my original song. It’s so delicious that you may be impressed! Or maybe you’ll fall into hell. (smile)
