Hi, mates! How have you been for these days?🥰

Look! You know we’re ready for Christmas here!🎄

The guest who stayed before drew the Osaka Castle and the Christmas illustrations that staff Nanami & Yuka did are good match isn’t it?😉

So Christmas is just around the corner, mates anyway!

What’s your plan on Christmas day?🙋🏻

…Me? Working here, of course!🌈 kkk

If you haven’t decided yet, why don’t you stay at MITSUWAYA with us?

On that day, we have various parties every year such as Takoyaki Party, Hotpot Party, and something like that!

So let’s play a game ‘Mancala'(Staff Shu bought it in Malaysia…) together while eating something good this year!

Santa Cause is coming to town~♪

Santa Clause is coming to town~♬

Sanat! Clause! is coming!! to town~🎅!!

 

Good morning, everyone!!

You know what? Christmas is just around the corner😙!!

What is your plan on Christmas Day?

How do you guys spend such a special day in your country?

 

Today, I’m gonna talk about Christmas in Japan🎅🎄🇯🇵

Each countries has really unique Christmas culture and those are so interesting!

Japan also has very unique (and kinds strange) Christmas culture✨

 

🇯🇵Japanese style Christmas 🇯🇵 (※It depends on the people!!)

・WHO do we spend with? →With family, friends, and boyfriend/girlfriend👫👬👭

・WHERE do we spend at? →At home, friends’ house, restaurant…!

・WHAT to eat? →KFC chicken🍗, Christmas cake🍰

 

Japanese think that Christmas Eve/Christmas Day is the day to spend with their lover😳!

It depends on the people, but many people spend time with their lover especially on Christmas Eve, and spend with their family on Christmas Day👀!

Those people who don’t have lover spend with their family or friends both on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, but they are recognized as “lonely person”(or sometimes “loser”), so many people try hard to get lover until Christmas 😂 Some people enjoy their single life with their friends or family✨

 

Santa Clause is coming secretly while we are sleeping!

In Japan, children open their Christmas gifts from Santa Clause in the morning on Christmas Day🎁

Children write letter to Santa Clause and put them on the window on Christmas Eve, and “Santa Clause” (their parents🤫) prepare their children’s gifts secretly while they are sleeping😴

In the morning, children get their gifts and open them!

Those moments to write letter, wait for Santa Clause’s coming, and finally find gifts were very exciting and memorable for me☺️! 

 

Christmas dinner = KFC chicken🍗 and Christmas cake🍰

We usually eat chicken and Christmas cake on Christmas Eve!!

I don’t know why KFC chicken is so famous as Christmas food in Japan, but there are still many people who go to KFC to get chicken on Christmas Eve✨

I think it’s one of the reasons that KFC’s commercials during Christmas season are really good and attractive💖

 

Japanese Christmas cake is also really delicious🍰!!!

I was always excited waiting for my parents’ coming back to my house with holding Christmas cake on that day!! Sometimes my father got Christmas cake from his company!!

 

This is our culture on Christmas season🎅🎄⛄️

How do you think about our culture😏✨

 

Thank you for reading💖

At MITSUWAYA, Takoyaki Party is held irregularly. Last time we did Takoyaki Party and 5 person participated. We cooked Takoyaki all together, and we ate together. Sooooo yummy! 

I found I like to do “PARTY PARTY”, but also “International Exchange”.

It was really funny, in Sweden the sun appears only 3 hours and at the same moment in Australia Santa Claus is surfing on the sea!

Thank you for staying here and let’s see each other in the future!

A lot of runner visit to Mitsuwaya when we have a Osaka Marathon.

Runner from Metherland, Mexico, Taiwan, Hong Kong this year.

We are appreciate to visit here from long distance.😊

And i just realize why people running 42.195km?

It must be tough and hard both physically and mentality.

But people do that as hard as possible.

When i have a grass of beer in my house, They are training for their goal.

After finished the marathon, I look his face.

His face was refreshing beautiful I felt envious.

2 Korean girls stayed at MITSUWAYA 8 nights! At first, I thought that they are a little bit shy, but we said each other “Good morning””Good night” everyday, then I felt that the distance was getting shorter.

When they checking out, I couldn’t say goodbye..

But they left such nice letters!!! 감사합니다!! 또 만나요!!

Hey summer! I am doing Uchimizu every afternoon. Uchimizu is the old Japanese custom of sprinkling water in streets and gardens with a ladle. Actually I am using a hose. It’s doesn’t matter. I don’t know where i can buy a ladle. Seven Eleven didn’t sell it. Anyway you will feel more cool after doing Uchimizu for sure. Unfortunately it happen just few minutes. Because too hot in Osaka. But we must have a rainbow.

There is not only guest from foreign country, but also Japanese guest. Sometimes Japanese guest are shy, and they think that they cannot speak English, so it might a little bit hard to talk with Japanese.

But I believe they want to talk with guests from all over the world, and they are really interested in you guys!

Last time, one Japanese guest stayed at MITSUWAYA, he is professional artist. He held his own gallery nearby. When he come back to MITSUWAYA, he drew my portrait. It was first time for me, so I was really happy!

After that, I drew his portrait in return. I’m not sure that I did well or not, but I hope he were happy as well.

When you come to Mitsuwaya, please try to talk with Japanese guest as well. Even if they speak English a little bit, you can find wonderful encounter.
