Cup Noodle Museum in Yokohama

Are you a big fan of Ramen? Then you have to try CUP NOODLES MUSEUM to learn the secret of cup noodle and to make one-of-a-kind ramen by yourself. A Japanese food company Nissin opened a unique museum for Ramen in Yokohama area.

There is also Ramen noodle food court in this museum. You can learn, play, make and eat cup noodles!

I thought this is more for kids museum, however when I went there, I have seen many adults enjoy this museum.

For more information, please ask our Liberty Cove House Concierge.

Heating System in Japan

It is cold in Yokosuka! Personally I think February is the coldest season in a year!

I would like to explain heating system in Japan. These days, because of the high price of oil and the relative airtightness of apartments in Japan, people prefer electric heating, such as air conditioners, oil heaters, ceramic heaters and floor heating. In addition to these general home-heating systems, people use such appliances as electric carpets and kotatsu for localized heating. As part of efforts to help protect the environment, 66 percent of Japanese citizens try to save electricity.

This Sunday is Setsubun – What is Setsubun?

Setsubun literally means “division of seasons.” It is used to mark the end of winter and summer, and is derived from the old lunar calendar.. However, “setsubun” has now come to mean the day before the first day of spring only. It usually occurs around February 3rd. On this day, in a custom called mame-maki, people throw and scatter roasted soy beans inside and outside their houses while saying, “Out with the devil! In with good fortune”. Once the beans are thrown, gather them all up and eat the same number of beans as your age. Eat one extra to keep you from sickness and stay healthy for the whole year.

Ehomaki is a sushi roll that is believed to be good luck when eaten on Setsubun day. This custom began in the Kansai area but now it has become a nationwide event and Ehomaki is sold at supermarkets and convenience stores. When eating Ehomaki, look in the year’s good luck direction, and eat quietly while making a wish. This year 2018 direction is ESE.
