黒毛和種(KUROGE WAGYU)

Hi,friends. How have you been?
Since I’ve eaten some Japanese Beef called “WAGYU” this week,I will write about it here today.
I’ve also updated a video about WAGYU on Youtube,please check it out and subscribe:)

WHAY IS “WAGYU“?
WAGYU is a Japanese beef cattle breed,derive from native Asian cattle.”WAGYU” refer to all Japanese beef cattle,where “WA” means Japan and “GYU” means cow.
WAGYU were originally draft animals used in agriculture,and were selected for their physical endurance.This selection favored animals with more intra-muscular fat cells,”marbling” that provided a readily available energy source. WAGYU is a horned breed and the cattle are either black or red in color.

Technically there are three types of “WAGYU” as follows.
①黒毛和種(KUROGE WAGYU)
The beef is well-marbled sirloin and feel nice fat of the Wagyu
②黒毛和種(KUROGE WAGYU)
The balance between marbling and lean part is good,so it’s really easy to eat.
③日本短角種 (NIHON TANKAKUSYU)
There’s less fat than above 黒毛和種(KUROGE WAGYU)and 黒毛和種(KUROGE WAGYU).You can mainly enjoy eating the lean part.

From my point of view,I prefer ①黒毛和種(KUROGE WAGYU)to others,but I can’t eat a lot due to heavy fat.The best way to enjoy having WAGYU is eat the lean part and marbling part at the same time. The balance is the most importance thing.

THE FRENCH FRIES WITH “NATTO”

Hi,Friends.How’s it going with Corona virus?
In order to increase the circulation of economy,the Japanese government has decided to release the self-restriction that has been asked for ordinary citizen.
Especially the owners running restaurants are on harsh situation due to decreasing customers.
We are not sure if this decision would be better or not.Only time will tell….

Today,I will write about the new food that combines French Fries with Japanese Food “Natto”.
Natto is a traditional Japanese food made from soybeans that have been fermented with Bacillus subtilis var natto. It is often served as a breakfast food. It is served with Karashi mustard, soy sauce, and sometimes Japanese bunching onion. Natto is often considered an acquired taste because of its powerful smell, strong flavor, and sticky, slimy texture.

The combination of Natto with Fries were not bad,it’s absolutely new taste.But one bad thing is that the smells of Natto keeps in your mouth and weaken the taste of fries and salty flavor…

I will write about Japanese food “Sukiyaki” that is one of the most popular foods in Japan.

WHAT IS “SUKIYAKI”?
Thinly-Sliced beed,Vegetables,Tofu,and some noodles made of Konnyaku are cooked in a Shallow iron pan and seasoned wit sugar,Japanese Alcoholic called “Sake” and soy sauce.
Most Japanese like to dip “sukiyaki” in raw egg,though many foreigners are reluctant to.
The Japanese only started eating beef after the Meiji Restoration 1870.Sukiyaki was one of the first dishes to use beef,and it has been popular since then.
“Suki” means spade and “Yaki” means roast.Some think that a metal spade used to be used to cook beef and that’s where it got it’s name.

Basically we Japanese usually eat rice,Miso soup,Natto,Egg.

WHAT KIND OF FUNERAL IS IT IN JAPAN?

WHAT KIND OF FUNERAL IS IT IN JAPAN?

Most funeral in Japan are done with Buddhist rites unless people have a strong faith in other religious such as Christianity.Most Japanese belong to both the Shinto and Buddhist faith,usually conduct their funerals with Buddhist rites.There are,however. some people who only to the Shinto faith,who conducted their funerals with Shinto rites.At typical Buddhist funerals,Buddhist monks chant sutras for the deceased. Relatives and close friends hold a wake called “tsuya” the next day,which is followed by a farewell service called “kokubetsushiki”
where Buddhist monks recite a sutra and people burn incense one after another for the repose of the departed soul.After these ceremonies,the deceased is cremated in a local crematory and the remains are buried in a cemetery.After that,relatives regularly hold Buddhist service for the deceased where Buddhist monks recite sutras. They are hold on the 7th and 49th days after death,one year after,two years after and at ever increasing intervals after.

CREMATORIUM

IS IT BURIAL OR CREMATION?

The rate of cremation in Japan is over 90 %, that is the highest in the world.There are still lots of countries,for example where Catholicism as the main religion,in which people are prejudiced against cremation,although more countries are starting to cremate bodies due to sanitation problems and lack of space.In Japan,cremation was done as early as in the 7th century partly because Buddha,the founder of Buddhism,was cremated.It is said that his only remains called “Busshan”were divided into 84,000 parts by King Ashoka in India in the third century BC,and given to many different countries.they are found in some Japanese temples and are usually kept in pagodas.

THE FACE MASKS THAT DISTRIBUTED BY JAPANESE GOVERNMENT

Hi,friends.How are you doing today?
Corona virus keeps spreading even more these days and nobody stops this affair.
All we have to do is to stay at home and avoid meeting people in person.

I’ve got the face masks from Japanese government above pic finally.
It’s supposed to be distributed by the government to each household(Two face masks each)in Japan which means they managed to handle approximate 260 millions of face masks through Japanese company ITOCHU CORPORATION, KOWA, MATSUOKA CORPORATION under this situation.
Since any face masks are out of stock here in Tokyo right now ,it’s grateful and helpful.But one bad thing about this is really costly,the Japanese government mentioned that it costed 44,600,000,000 yen(about US$47 billion).As you already know that the expense is from taxes people managed to pay until now.
There’s lots of Japanese complaining about this cost and saying it’s a waste of money.
What’s worse,the quality of those face masks are low and also many people who got one found defects like stains,mixing bugs and so on.Then government has decided to recall the face masks.

Not only ordinary citizen but also the government are on terribly panic and our of control right now.Let’s see what will happen after this.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and read this article.
See you soon.
