ஜப்பானில் பாரம்பரியமாக டோக்யு எனப்படும் காளை சண்டை போட்டி நடைபெற்று வருகிறது. இப்போட்டியில் சண்டை வளையத்திற்குள் இரண்டு காளை விடப்பட்டு மோத வைக்கப்படும். மாடுகளை உற்றாகப்படுத்தி அதனை மோத வைக்க காளைகளின் பயிற்சியாளர்கள் போட்டி வளையத்திற்குள் அனுமதிக்கப்படுவர். இதுவரை ஆண்கள் மட்டுமே வளையத்திற்கு அனுமதிக்கப்பட்டனர்.

இந்நிலையில், யாமகோஷி மாவட்டத்தில் நடைபெற்ற டோக்யு போட்டியில் முதல்முறையாக யுகி அரகி என்ற பெண் போட்டி வளையத்திற்குள் நுழைய அனுமதிக்கப்பட்டார். இது பெரும் வரவேற்பை பெற்றுள்ளது.



சில மாதங்களுக்கு முன் சுமோ மல்யுத்த வளையத்திற்குள் சென்று முதலுதவி செய்ய முயன்ற பெண்கள் வெளியேற்றப்பட்டனர். பெண்கள் நுழைந்ததால் அந்த இடம் அசுத்தம் அடைந்ததாக கூறி, அதனை உப்பு, ஒயின் மற்றும் அரிசி கொண்டு தூய்மைப்படுத்தினர். இதைத்தொடர்ந்து, இந்த முடிவு எடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

25 வினாடிகள் முந்திச் சென்றதற்காக மன்னிப்பு கேட்ட ஜப்பான் ரெயில்வே துறை

1526701352048.png

ஜப்பான் நாட்டில் பொதுமக்களுக்கு சிரமம் கொடுக்கக் கூடாது என்பதற்காக அனைத்து போக்குவரத்து வாகனங்களும் குறிப்பிட்ட நேரத்தில் புறப்பட்டுச் செல்லும். இதேபோல், குறிப்பிட்ட இடத்தையும் சரியான நேரத்தில் சென்றடைவது வழக்கம்.

இந்நிலையில், ஜப்பான் நாட்டில் குறிப்பிட்ட நேரத்துக்கு முன் 25 வினாடிகள் முன்னதாகவே ரெயில் புறப்பட்டு சென்றதால் சிரமப்பட்ட பயணிகளிடம் ரெயில்வே நிர்வாகம் மன்னிப்பு கேட்டுள்ளது.

ஜப்பான் நாட்டில் நோட்டகவா என்ற ரெயில் நிலையம் அமைந்துள்ளது. இங்கிருந்து தினமும் காலை 7.12 மணிக்கு ரெயில் புறப்பட்டுச் செல்லும்.



இந்நிலையில், நேற்று முன்தினம் காலை 7.12 மணிக்கு புறப்பட வேண்டிய ரெயில், சுமார் 25 வினாடிகள் முன்னதாக 7 மணி 11 நிமிடம் 35 வினாடிக்கு புறப்பட்டு கிளம்பி சென்றது.

இதனால் அந்த ரெயிலில் பயணம் செய்ய இருந்த பயணிகள் வழக்கமாக செல்லும் ரெயில் இல்லாததை கண்டு கோபம் அடைந்தனர். பள்ளிகள், அலுவலகங்களுக்கு காலதாமதம் ஏற்பட்டதை தொடர்ந்து ஒரு சிலர் ரெயில்வே நிர்வாகத்திடம் புகார் அளித்தனர்.

இதையடுத்து, பயணிகளுக்கு ஏற்பட்ட அசவுகரியத்துக்கு ரெயில்வே நிர்வாகம் வருத்தம் தெரிவித்துள்ளது. இனிமேல் இது போன்ற சம்பவம் நடைபெறாது எனவும் மன்னிப்பு கோரியுள்ளது.

An artist's rendering of Teppei Kaneuji's 'Tower,' which will bring together various collaborators, including musicians Oorutaichi and Satoko Shibata, dancer Yasutake Shimaji, actor Izumi Aoyagi, playwright Toshiki Okada, and artist collective contact Gonzo. 'Tower' will be active in the Roppongi Hills Arena for Roppongi Art from 6 p.m. on May 26 to 6 p.m. May 27, then again from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Louise Bourgeois’ dark and emotionally ambiguous “Maman,” a giant spider sculpture in Tokyo’s Roppongi Hills district, has been covered in brightly colored yarn for the 15th anniversary of Roppongi Hills and the ninth iteration of Roppongi Art Night.

The artist behind this is American Magda Sayeg, who has been covering various street monuments, vehicles and objects around the world as minor acts of rebellion against modern urban life

Are black people dangerous for Japan?

1526815735032.png


In recent weeks, there have been some YouTube channels espousing blatantly racist content that more than likely violates hate speech legislation here in Japan. Some of these videos, made by Japanese, even target blacks living in Japan, proposing we are a danger to this country.

One thing these videos have in common is that they pander to people who live in a reality where race or skin color is a shortcut to determining a person’s character and predicting their behavior. This is an exceedingly popular propensity the world over, and one that has caused a great deal of harm over the course of human history.

hock-full of fun: a dog named Chucker

1526816195876.png

Six-year-old Gobo was born a stray on the grounds of a temple and came to ARK when he was 2. No longer a puppy at the time of rescue, he hadn’t been socialized around people, and even now, he retains a healthy wariness that would have been crucial for survival. Gobo’s gorgeous coloring will draw your attention immediately and his intelligent, alert gaze will search your soul for clues to what you’re made of. Gobo needs to know you won’t do anything scary to him. He needs to know he can trust you, But, if you come carrying treats, he’ll then want your undivided attention! Gobo looks like a wolf, but he’s a lamb at heart.

Portrait of Emperor, Empress unveiled

1526908075865.png


Japan's Imperial Household Agency unveiled a portrait of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Monday. This is the first time the couple's portrait was created with their approval.

The oil painting was produced by Hiroshi Noda, a leading artist of realism. It was completed in January and delivered to the Imperial Palace in March.

In the artwork painted on a canvas 2 meters in both length and width, the Emperor stands on the left and the Empress half a step behind him on the right.

Eighty-one-year-old Noda has been close to the couple since they were crown prince and princess.

The agency says the idea of the Imperial portrait was raised 8 years ago. Noda produced the painting based on a photo taken 4 years ago.

He realistically depicted the texture of the couple's skin, clothes and the wall in the background.

The agency says the Emperor and Empress are delighted with the painting.

Climber Nobukazu Kuriki dies on Mt. Everest

1526908336618.png

Japanese climber Nobukazu Kuriki has died while attempting to scale Mount Everest. He was 35.

A Nepalese mountaineering association says Kuriki was found collapsed near a camp on the mountain at an altitude of 7,400 meters on Monday morning.

The Japanese embassy in Kathmandu says it was also informed of his death that morning. Embassy staff will confirm his death as soon as the body is transported to the Nepalese capital.

On his official blog, Kuriki's office reported he would descend from a point of 7,400 meters because he was in bad shape.

Later, Kuriki's office posted a comment on the blog saying that Kuriki stopped responding via radio during his descent. A filming crew traced his route and found him dead from hypothermia.

Kuriki scaled the highest peaks of 6 continents. This was his 8th attempt to reach the summit of Everest without oxygen since 2009. In his 2012 attempt, he lost most of his fingers on both hands due to frostbite.

Kuriki was known to post images online while climbing mountains. Footage of the latest attempt had also been uploaded.

His office noted Kuriki's earlier promise to return from Everest alive, and apologized for the result.

Homemade Chicken Soup Ramen (鶏だしラーメン; tori dashi

Learn how to make ramen soup from scratch using chicken thighs! The clear, aromatic soup is simple yet incredibly delicious.

1526908969373.png


Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 packs instant ramen noodles
  • 1 bone-in chicken thigh (250 g)
  • 1 Japanese leek (green portion; minced)
  • 1 piece ginger (thinly sliced)
  • 2 heads bok choy
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Directions

1

Make an incision in the chicken thigh along the bone. Season with salt and pepper.

2

Heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a frying pan. Fry both sides of the chicken until golden brown. Remove the chicken and add the leek and ginger. Stir-fry until aromatic.

3

Place the chicken, leek, ginger, 1 tsp of salt and 1.6 liters of water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 35 minutes.

4

When the soup reduces to half, remove the chicken. Debone and tear into pieces. Test the soup and adjust with salt to taste. Blanch the bok choy and cut into easy-to-eat pieces.

5

Fill a separate pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the instant ramen and continue boiling, adding water 2-3 times to keep it from boiling over. Cook the noodles slightly less than the amount of time specified on the package, then drain thoroughly. Arrange in individual serving bowls, and pour the chicken soup over the noodles. Top with shredded chicken and bok choy.

Ikebana: The Art of Flower Arranging

1526909190276.png

What is Ikebana?

Ikebana is the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging. The name comes from the Japanese ike, meaning ‘alive’ or ‘arrange’ and bana meaning ‘flower.’

The practice of using flowers as offerings in temples originated in the seventh century when Buddhism was first introduced to Japan from China and Korea, but the formalized version of Ikebana didn’t begin until the Muromachi period around the 15th or 16th century.

These arrangements have since become more secular, displayed as art forms in people’s homes. However, Ikebana is seen as more than just decorative, it is a spiritual process that helps one develop a closeness with nature and merge the indoors and outdoors.
