Today I tried for the first time a sweet and salty snack well know in Japan, the potato chips covered with chocolate. For my part, I am more salty than sweet but I am definitely glad that I could try it. The taste was little bit strange at first bite, but then you quickly become like “Oh that’s good! I want to eat more!!” Depending on which side first touches your tongue chocolate side or salty side, the taste changes! I liked it, definitely going to bring back some in Tahiti. (^.^)
Today I tried hamburgers at “Fire House” in Hongo Sanchome, because I heard that they were the best of Tokyo! They are noted 3 stars! They won for 4 consecutive years the prize of the best american food! So I went and waited for more than 30 minutes because there were already so many people lining up, even under the hot sun! But at the end, the wait was worth it! It was sooooo delicious! It’s definitely a must-try, at least once in your lifetime! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Today, Hasegawa-san and Yoshida-san brought me with them at their business meeting at a company called ”Phenix”. Phenix is a skiwear brand, and also englobes the brand ”Kappa” which is well known. I’ve never heard about Phenix before, but I certainly knew Kappa. The main purpose of today’s meeting was in short to establish what the company would want from G-try, and what could G-try offer them. It was very interesting to listen and see how they were exchanging, how compromises are made and decisions are taken. Really grateful that I could participate during that meeting!
Since I watched the first football game of Japan against Côte d’Ivoire during the Fifa World Cup in Brazil, I wondered why the Japanese fans were cheering their team with blue plastic bags. I found that really odd! But now that I know the answer, it’s truly admirable! They are not only using these plastic bags as a cheering tool, but mostly after the game they pick up the trashes after themselves so that to leave a clean place! I just couldn’t believe it when I heard that, and the fact that it has inspired other countries fans to do the same, it’s amazing!! No wonder why they have been voted the best fans at the World cup! Love Japan! <3
Everyday in the morning when I walk to the train station, I pass by the wonderful smell of the “Taina” flower! It reminds me a lot about Tahiti because there are plenty of them there. I totally forgot that there were also in Japan! When I smell it, it always puts me in a good mood, it smells soooo good 🙂
