1. Arashi karaoke videos on Youtube

I have been obsess with practicing with Arashi karaoke videos on Youtube. If you are a Japan fan and never heard of Arashi please check them out! They are amazing!


2. Hi-Chew

Hi-Chew is a Japanese brand chewy candy that comes in a variety of flavors. Common flavors include apple, grape, lychee and lychee. I just recently tried out lemon flavor Hi-Chew and is liking it! I love lemon flavored things! If you have never tried Hi-Chew you have to give it a quick try. I am very certain you will love it!

3. Yumeiro Patissiere

Yumeiro Patissiere is a shojo manga/ anime that elements of cooking, school, comedy and romance. I found out about this anime last year and watched some episodes on Youtube. Recently I saw this anime on TV again and is instantly in love all over again. The manga/anime is about a girl name Ichigo and her adventures at a pastry school. I think it’s fun waching Ichigo and her friends making delicious desserts!

4. Doraemon

Doraemon has been a wonderful manga/anime I grew up with. I first started watching Doraemon since I was around six years old. Even till today I still love Doraemon a lot. I recently just visited a Doraemon exhibition and it was super fun! It brought back a lot of wonderful memories of me watching Doraemon when I was young. If you have never seen Doraemon before than you are missing out! You have to check doraemon out right away!!

Katsudon & Oyakodon


I’m back again to talk about two of my favorite Japanese food. Today’s topic is Katsudon and Oyakodon.
What is Katsudon? According to our trusty Wikipedia, katsudon is a bowl of rice topped with a deep fried pork cutlet, egg and condiments. Still a bit confused? Here are some picture of katsudon that I’m certain will make you hungry!

Now moving on to talking about Oyakodon. What is oyakodon? According to the trusty Wikipedia oyakodon is Japanese rice bowl with chicken, egg, sliced scallion and other ingredients. Here are some delicious picture!

Now I am certain that you have this burning question in the back of your mind about how to create this two dishes at your own kitchen. I am going to link you to two Youtube videos, one about katsudon, another one for oyakodon. You can watch the video to get an idea on how to make your own katsudon & otakodon.

Wish you the best of luck!
