Funfact: What is Genkouyoushi and how do I use it?

Fun Fact: 

Genkouyoushi or in Japanese Kanji 原稿用紙 is a specific type of printed writing paper
It can can be used to write horizontally (yokogaki) or vertically (tategaki)

Correct use of genkō yōshi (400 square sheet shown):

  1. Title on the 1st column, first character in the 4th square.
  2. Author's name on the 2nd column, with 1 square between the family name and the given name, and 1 empty square below.
  3. First sentence of the essay begins on the 3rd column, in the 2nd square. Each new paragraph begins on the 2nd square.
  4. Subheadings have 1 empty column before and after, and begin on the 3rd square of a new column.
  5. Punctuation marks normally occupy their own square, except when they will occur at the top of a column, in which case they share a square with the last character of the previous column.

The paper comes in two variations, 

paper with 

1. 400 squares per page or 

2. 200 squares per page and 20 squares per line. 

It is normal to put one character or punctuation per square.

What is Giri- Ninjo in Japanese culture?


Picture: Making sushi rice at home

"Giri-ninjo is viewed as obligation in return for a favour... Giri-ninjo operates in nearly all interpersonal relationships. Because parents lavish amae on children, children must repay their parents by taking care of them in their old age" 

Amae = the unconscious desire found in Japanese cultures to depend on others to do things for them

Have you tried the Japanese Baked Chocolate confectionery "CREAP" クリープ ?

Have you tried the Japan-made confectionery "CREAP" or クリープ?

It is very innovative because it transforms the company's CREAP coffee whitener into a yummy confectionery.

The confectionery is made by Morinaga. They have built on their coffee whitener CREAP and used it to make a new confectionery they called BAKE chocolate!

The confectionery looks like a loaf of bread when it comes out of the individual sachet wrapped in freshness foil.

It is crunchy on the outside and very soft on the inside and then just melts in your mouth. A very pleasant texture and mouth experience which is not overly sweet.

They are very moreish, you cannot stop at just one!

The confectionery comes in a 27-item, multi-pack each portion weighs which weighs approximately 83g, and the whole package is 1.9 kg
