Nara – the Forgotten Capital of Japan

When planning their trip to Japan, most people include Tokyo and Kyoto on their itinerary under the assumption that they will be covering the ever-fascinating contrast between new and old in Japan. While Tokyo is, indeed, a skyscraper jungle punctuated by odd little shops springing out from here and there, a heaven for techies who aspire to nothing more than getting lost in the streets of Akihabara, where all sorts of hi-tech toys, manga and anime characters compete for attention, Kyoto is often seen as a remnant of the “old ways” with its magnificent and abundant temples, cozy restaurants and kimono shops.

Kawaii is Japanese for Cute

If you’ve played Pokemon Go or bought a Hello Kitty handbag, you’ll have experienced kawaii (pronounced ‘ka -why’) first hand. Kawaii means Parte’ in Japanese, but it’s a shorthand expression for a whole cultural phenomenon.

While kawaii started as a fashion craze for 14- to 18-year-old women, it has now spread to Japanese society at large. Police boxes are now decorated with cute mascots, and construct on sites are sometimes guarded by bright pink railings, there’s even a special cute mascot who urges you to file your tax form online.

Collecting Hello Kitty for Fun, and Occasionally, Profit

Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty, created by the Sanrio company in 1974, has become one of the most popular and recognizable icons in the world. Sanrio celebrated 40 years of Kittydom in 2014, and she shows no sign of slowing down or going out of favor. In fact, she is one of the most collectable items in the world. A vintage lunchbox set from the 70s can fetch hundreds of dollars, from fans and non-fan collectors alike.

From a decorative stationery item to a full fledged character with a back story and a TV series, the former Miss Kitty White has also become a symbol of wealth and bling. She has been cast in platinum, covered in Swarovski crystals and turned into a cute robot, all at tremendous expense. In fact, Hello Kitty is the epitome of cuteness, or Kawaii, as it is known in Japan. (さらに…)

Phakchi Craze in Japan: More Coriander, Please!

The herb is called coriander, cilantro or Chinese parsley according to Wikipedia. Coriander is native to regions spanning from southern Europe and North Africa to Southeastern Asia. The unique herb is probably familiar to your country. It has been getting very popular in Japan as well these past ten years. Actually, it was forgotten for centuries. Coriander was first described in a book entitled “Engishiki” in 927, which is a Japanese book about laws and customs. However because of its strong and distinctive flavor, the herb did not go well with Japanese food and the people did not like it. And there are some books that describes it was used as a medicine in Edo period (from 1603 to 1808). After World War II, coriander was first distributed in the market in the late 1970s. And again it did not sell at all. But as international cuisines became popular in Japan, the Japanese people finally realized how good it tastes. The herb is called the Thai term “Phakchi (pak chee)” in Japan. They say phakchi is a herb people either love it or hate it. There are many phakchi lovers and haters and we sometimes argue about it (in a funny and humorous way though) when drinking. Phakchi lovers describes themselves as “Phakchist (パクチスト)”, the coined word from ‘phakchi’ and the suffix ‘-ist’. Surprisingly, there are more than 70,000 results on “Pakchist” in Japanese when you google the term. Now we have restaurants in Japan that specialize in phakchi. We will show you some of the restaurants today. Ok, let’s start!
