**** 鱧の骨切り:Cutting bone of HAMO ****

HAMO is expensive fish with white meat. But it has many small bones in the meat.

Then, Japanese cook cut the bones into 1 mm length each. Listen to the sound to cut bones and find the skin is not cut.



After bones being cut, it will be boiled in water and becomes like flower.

**** Japanese 500JPY coin ****

500 yen coin has some secrets. "500 yen" in zero and hidden word "NIPPON".



In 20th century, a certain country had issued coins with almost same size and weight as Japanese 500 yen coin (previous version). Japanese Government requested the country to stop issuing the coin bu they refused. The foreign coin had been used to tease Japanese vending machines.

Therefore, Japanese government developed new version of 500 yen coin with high security.

**** UNAGI ****

Neither SUSHI nor RAMEN is the best Japanese food.

The best food in Japan is UNAGI (I believe).



UNAGI is often served with a soup involving liver in it.

Ans take attention to the seasoning "SANSHO" which I want to call it as "electric pepper". You will find what I mean when enjoy the "SANSHO".

**** 風鈴:ふうりん: FUURIN (Wind Bells) ****

FUURIN is hanged just outside of a window to make cool(cold) feeling by the sound.

In fact, an examination (not strict) by a TV show proved that the temperature on the skin of Japanese people got down while the temperature of skin of foreign people (who do not know about the FUURIN) got up.

It was not a strict examination but Japanese people seemed to have got the characteristics as a conditional reflection.

here are 12 examples of FUURIN sounds.



1. NAMBU Iron Three Bells

2. Sanukite stone @IBARAKI

3. Grass @OTARU

4. Handmade metal

5. MENOU(agate) @KAMAKURA

6. KASHIWAGI metal @ODAWARA

7. MYOCHIN fire chopsticks

8. NOUSAKU metal

9. NAMBU Iron (Small)

10. NAMBU Iron(Large)

11. NAMBU Iron(TDR version)

12. DAISO (100JPY shop)

**** お通し:OTOHSHI;un-ordered service or Table charge with small dish ****

In IZAKAYA or drinking restaurant in Japan, you will face some small dish you did not order at the starting. It is called "OTOHSHI" meaning common (un-ordered or inplcit) order.

It is actually the table charge with small dish as a service.

In this movie, they recommend to turn on the subtitles.
