let me introduce Japanese food culture.
Have you ever been to Izakaya? Do you know what Izakaya is?
a Japanese style pub.
a Japanese style pub
居 = to stay
酒 = alcohol, Sake
屋 = shop
You can have plenty of beer and sake, and also a wide selection of a casual meal like Yakitori, Sashimi, and grilled fish!
In fact, I have never been to Izakaya because I’m still under-aged in Japan. I want to go there soon with my friends~~! But, you can go there if you don’t drink alcohol or sake.
The dishes are generally small and inexpensive.
You will given a hot towel when you sit
on. This is an Oshibori which is offered to each customer to clean their hands before eating.
1. Do you know what Izakaya is?
2. Do you want to go there?
3. Do you like drinking with your friends?
The Japanese have generally no religion, or practice Shintoism or Buddhism. I am a member of no religion too. However, there are many people who believe a religion.
↑↑↑This is a kind of Buddha.↑↑↑
This is a church in Philippines.
Today, I would like to talk about religion in the Philippines.
The Philippines proudly boasts to be the only Christian nation in Asia. More than 86 percent of the population is Roman Catholic, 6 percent belong to various nationalized Christian cults, and another 2 percent belong to well over 100 Protestant denominations.
When I knew this fact, I was surprised. I thought that Asian countries’ people believe Buddhism.
Since the Spaniards came in the 1500s, religion in the Philippines became more homogenous, and Catholicism became the main religion in most regions, except in the South, where most of the leaders managed to escape conversion and retain their Islamic faith.
I found that I couldn’t upload the blog about Nadeshiko emics, so I reupload this.
Let me introduce about Nadeshiko emics.
Today, I want to tell you about masculinity in Philippines.
Please look at this.
You can see masculinity in Finland, Japan, and Philippines.
As the number, 64 shows that masculinity in Philippines is high.
Look at this!
There are many dishes in Philippines. It i said that Japanese like many of them. It is because Japanese like flavoring, ingredients and recipe of food in Philippines.
Today, let me introduce about some dishes in Philippines!
This is a Filipino dish made from parts of pig head and liver, usually seasoned with calamansi and chili peppers.
It looks tasty!
The Philippines has the 4th highest power distance index in the world at 94 compared to Japan at 54.
There are rich people and poor people in the world. I think you have heard Japan is a hierarchical society on the news. Also, the Philippines is a hierarchical society, but the difference between rich and poor are pretty extreme in the Philippines. It isn’ t too much to say that poor people will never become rich people there. Why? It is because poor people receive hardly any school education. They cannot afford to buy school uniforms or stationaries. They have to work to live instead.
The growth of regional economies has not solved the poverty issue. In fact, the relative gap between rich people and poor people is wider than before.
So, I think that’s why the Philippines has the 4th highest power distance index in the world.
