IZAKAYA? Japanese food culture

Hello,

let me introduce Japanese food culture.

.

.

Have you ever been to Izakaya? Do you know what Izakaya is?

.

Izakaya is…

a Japanese style pub.

.

居酒屋

I-Zaka-Ya

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.

.

Q.

1. Do you know what Izakaya is?

2. Do you want to go there?

3. Do you like drinking with your friends?

Filipino believe …?

Hello.

.

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.

Masculinity

Hello!

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.

BUT!!!!!

Look at this!

Food in Philippines!

Hello!

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!

.

1. Sisig(シシグ)

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.

I chose Philippines!! I will send you wonderful information about Philippines.

First of all, please look at this data. This data is called Hofstede because Mr. Hofstede studied about this.

There are big distance between Philippines and Japan.

At a score of 94, The Philippines is a hierarchical society. This means that people accept a hierarchical order in which everybody has a place and which needs no further justification. Hierarchy in an organization is seen as reflecting inherent inequalities, centralization is popular, subordinates expect to be told what to do and the ideal boss is a benevolent autocrat.

How about Japan? At an intermediate score of 54, Japan is a borderline hierarchical society. Yes, Japanese are always conscious of their hierarchical position in any social setting and act accordingly. However, it is not as hierarchical as most of the other Asian cultures. Some foreigners experience Japan as extremely hierarchical because of their business experience of painstakingly slow decision making process: all the decisions must be confirmed by each hierarchical layer and finally by the top management in Tokyo. Paradoxically, the exact example of their slow decision making process shows that in Japanese society there is no one top guy who can take decision like in more hierarchical societies. Another example of not so high Power Distance is that Japan has always been a meritocratic society. There is a strong notion in the Japanese education system that everybody is born equal and anyone can get ahead and become anything if he (yes, it is still he) works hard enough.

.

POWER DISTANCE

This dimension deals with the fact that all individuals in societies are not equal – it expresses the attitude of the culture towards these inequalities amongst us. Power Distance is defined as the extent to which the less powerful members of institutions and organisations within a country expect and accept that power is distributed unequally.

At a score of 94, The Philippines is a hierarchical society. This means that people accept a hierarchical order in which everybody has a place and which needs no further justification. Hierarchy in an organization is seen as reflecting inherent inequalities, centralization is popular, subordinates expect to be told what to do and the ideal boss is a benevolent autocrat.

I think it is important that a child can fully receive education as one of the solutions of problems of poverty.

I will introduce greeting of Tagalog in Philippines. In fact, however, people in Philippines often speak English.

About money💰

Moi 🙂 🙂 🙂

Finland is a founding member of the EU, so people use Euro.

https://goo.gl/images/vuxm3p

If you convert yen into euros, 128 yen is 1 Euro.

https://www.currency-calc.jp/JPY_EUR

.

I think there are some merits to use Euro. First,  people who live in Europe can go to anywhere in Europe whenever they want to. Second, people in Europe don’t have difficulty in exchanging money.

.

Q.

1.Do you know that Euro is used in Finland?

2.Do you think that there are merits to use Euro? Why?

3.In the country you chose, do people use Euro?
