  • Has Winter Come Early?
  • That’s the thought on everyone’s mind this fall .While the constant and seemingly unending rainstorms have no doubt contributed to the cold conditions, but it’s certainly very interesting to see the weather start to feel more like winter, especially after the summer has just ended. Is this natural for JapanIt hardly seems so. I have lived in Japan for several years, and this trend is new to m [続きを読む]
  • The Heat Is On!
  • Well, this is suprising. Fall has been in the air for more than two weeks, yet except for a brief period involving rain, you woul
    d never have known it.As of now, it still feels a lot like summer . The sun is shining brightly, and the temperatures are still h
    igh. In fact, I still have to run my air conditioner at night . It’s still simply too hot to sleep comfortably .I thought by no

  • Halloween Is Coming!
  • Fall has finally fallen on Japan , and I personally couldn’t be more excited . Not just because it means the end of summer , which admittedly is a big reason to celebrate in and of itself.It’s also because fall signals the approach of Halloween, which all fiendish ghouls know drops on October 31 every year.It’s a holiday that most people seem to think is just for kids , but it’s actually fo [続きを読む]
  • Indian Festivals
  • India is well known in the world for its cultural and traditional festivals.Colorful clothes , special sweets, soulful music, dec
    orations all around - you get a completely different vibe during Indian festivals.Though many of the grand festivals celebrate vi
    ctory of good over evil, their celebrations differ from each other tremendously.Indians festivals have gained so much popularity r

  • Diverse India
  • Everything in mathematics begins with zero .Yogahas become a popular form of exercise not just for a healthy body, but also for a
    peaceful mind .Chess is widely known as the world's greatest game.Trigonometry helps us find angles and distances, and is u

  • Jackie Chan's New Movie Opens in Japan
  • In the last few weeks, the new Jackie Chan action-comedy called "Skiptrace" opened in Japan , and yesterday I had the o
    pportunity to see the movie . I have to admit that I haven't seen many Jackie Chan actioners over the years, but the timing w
    orked out for me to see this one. In this blog post, I'll share my thoughts on the movie. While I haven't seen many mov
    ies that Jackie Chan has starred in [続きを読む]
  • Retail Therapy in Seoul
  • “Life is a book and those who don't travel read only one page .” I for sure don't want to be amongst those people, hence I set out to read another page as my husband and I planned our long-awaited trip to Seoul, the capital city of Korea .Having lived in Japan for over a year and being so close to Korea , it was high time we visited this country. My Japanese friends consider Seoul as one of t [続きを読む]
  • Similarities between India & Japan
  • Human race is extremely diverse . We differ in a number of ways like ethnicity, race, religion, philosophy, the list is endless. B
    ut in spite of the many differences in our lifestyles, there are also many striking similarities between the underlying values an
    d principles in different cultures.Being born and brought up in India and living for more than an year in Japan , I have found som

  • What you might not know about Australia!
  • Having lived in Australia my whole life, I was never fully aware of how people from other countries viewed Australia . Speaking to
    many people in Japan since I moved here, I was surprised to find out that many people may not have the best idea of what Austra
    lia is truly like .Aside from silly stereotypes about Australia (such as everyone in Australia having a pet kangaroo), there may b

  • Is It Fall Yet?
  • One thing I have to admit that I don't enjoy about Japan is its extreme weather. Others might disagree, but I find Japan&ap
    os;s winters and (especially) its summers to be quite uncomfortable and unpleasant. Other parts of the world may have colder wint
    ers(and more snow), but how likely is it that other countries have hotter (and more humid) summers This summer has proven to be s
    omething of an excep [続きを読む]
  • The Obon Holiday
  • Well, it's official. The Obon holiday has come and gone, and I hope everyone had a great holiday . While not technically an o
    fficial holiday in Japan , it is widely recognized as one, and shops are often closedduring this time. It's usually a time w
    hen Japanese go to their hometowns and spend time with their families . It's quite common for Tokyoites to leave the metropo

  • Summer Camp 2017 - Day 2
  • In late July and again in early August, as part of its Summer Camp, young students at English Avenue were able to visit the Tokyo
    office of Google at Mori Tower in Roppongi (Roppongi Hills). Our students were quite excited to visit Google and to learn more ab
    out the company. After all, is there anyone who doesn't use Google every day? When we entered the office, our students were g

  • Summer Camp 2017 - Day 1
  • A Summer Camp is an excellent way to help children build self-confidence and mingle with kids from various backgrounds & cultures.
    At such camps, children see and learn the importance of teamwork and communication.I still cherish the experiences of summer camps
    I attended in my childhood; hence I couldn’t be more elated when I was informed that I will be participating in conducting a su

  • Donald Trump: Still Great for TV Ratings
  • It's been fascinating to see what's become of the American presidency in the last six months. It's safe to say th
    at the entire country has been paying attention to the goings-on in Washington with the utmost interest. With the exception of his
    inauguration and first few weeks in office, it never seemed to me that the country paid too much attention to the Obama administ
    ration, especially during [続きを読む]
  • Book Review: Many Lives Many Masters
  • Past life, life after death, reincarnation-these are some of the concepts I have always been intrigued about. Hence when during a
    casual conversation, a friend suggested to read the book 'Many Lives Many Masters', I did not wait for a day to grab my
    copy.The book is by a renowned psychiatrist Dr Brian Weiss, about his real life experiences with one of his patients-Catherine. Ca

  • Buckle Up for the Typhoon!
  • A strong typhoon is currently hitting Japan , but thankfully it has no attacked Tokyo yet. It may finally arrive in Tokyo on Wedne
    sday, but by then it might be downgraded to a tropical storm. Of course, the weather would still be pretty terrible, but at least
    it would not be a full-blown typhoon. Having been in Japan for several years, I have faced my share of typhoons. All have been rat

  • Sending your children to study abroad
  • Sending your children to study abroad: A great learning experience When you teach English as a second language in a foreign countr
    y, you naturally get many questions of various kinds. For example, people ask about my experiences in the United States . They as

  • Egawa kaigan
  • I recently went to Chiba for a daytrip with my family. The thing I like about Chiba is as soon as you cross the aqua line (only 80
    0 each way with an ETC card) it's like you've entered a different world. Gone is the hectic, encroaching metropolis and
    it its place is an abundance of calm, green rice fields. "Growing rice gives you more than poetry will" - Japanese prove

  • Summer Blockbusters
  • Summertimeis finally here, and that usually means some interesting movies are playing at your local multiplex. Sometimes the movi
    es are quite exciting, and these are the movies we remember for many years. Films like Jurassic Park and Independence Day were b
    ig hits in their day, but they still endure as popular movies. As time goes on, however, the staying power of movies also decrease

  • Cool Biz Japan: Not for Workers?
  • The Cool Biz campaign for this summeris in full swing. Salarymen and other professionals are allowed to go to work wearing short
    -sleeve shirts and perhaps other seasonally-appropriate apparel. Japan has been notorious for its harsh working conditions, so it&
    apos;s natural to assume that Cool Biz is a response to that, right Well, maybe not . Of course, it does have the actual effect of
    benefiting wor [続きを読む]
