In Korea, The Pyeongchang Olympic Games will start today. Most of Filipinos may not be familiar with the winter Olympic Games.
The nearest foreign country from Japan is Korea.Â Both countries had exchange since ancient times.Â I have heard that language of Japanese and Korean have the same grammar.Â Before the modern age, advanced Chinese culture was often brought to Japan via the Korean Peninsula. One of the ancestors of the Emperor is the empress from the Korean Peninsula.
By the way, 73 years ago, there was no Korea country. From 1910 to 1945 the Korean Peninsula was also Japan.
It was not desirable,Â But since the Korean Peninsula is surrounded by China, Russia (Soviet) and Japan, at that time it was not able to stand the position of an independent country.
However, after the end of the Pacific War Korea has been independent from Japan.Â And there are many Koreans in Japan who continue to live in Japan.
There is a difference between them. For Ebi fly, We use flour, eggs, bread crumbs as a coating before frying. But for Ebi-no-tempra, We don’t use bread crumbs. Then, Fried shrimp is more crispy than tempura.
“Setsubunï¼ç¯åï¼” is a traditional event on February 3rd.Â In each house, saying “Oni wa sotoï¼é¬¼ã¯å¤ï¼, Fuku wa uchiï¼ç¦ã¯å ï¼” and sprinkle beans at the entrance. “Oni wa soto, Fuku wa uchi” means “davil is outside, God of luck is inside”. Also it is good to eat beans as many as your age.
In short, it is a remnant of customs when superstitions were believed, but bean confectionery will be focusedly sold for Setsubun at the supermarket after the New Year.
If you can eat “nattoï¼ç´è±ï¼”, you may as well be a resident in Japan.Â Natto is a fermented soybean.Â It smells like a sulfur, but it is so delicious food.
Usually, we stir it for several dozen times with chopsticks and thoroughly stickiness, then eat it with favorite seasoning. For example with yellow mustard.Â Also, it is extraordinary to eat it with rice.
It smells tasty, not everyone likes it.Â That is the same as Dorian.Â Actually, many Japanese people do not eat natto in the Kansai area.
In addition, since you tend to have a bad breath after eating natto you might as well watch out for the timing to eat it.
