Ahijo!

Hello.
This is Yuka from Osaka Hana Hostel.

I had a year end party with Misaki who is my colleague of Osaka Hana Hostel in December of last year.

The bar we found by chance was so nice that we went there and ate a ahijo and a glass of sangria.
The name of the shop is "COMEDOR AJO" in Shinsaibashi.

In fact,because of I didn't chance to eat ahijo,I never tried before.
But now!I'm into ahijo.It's very delicious!
Go there and try delicious ahijo if you have a chance!

And I'm going to have a New Year's party this month with all of reception staff.

I want to eat it again at that time!




A Happy new year day!

Belated a happy new year everyone!

This is Shiori from J-hoppers Hiroshima.

By the way, how was your new year holidays?

Me? We had a party at J-hoppers Hiroshima on New year's Eve!๐Ÿ’›

Originally I brace myself that I finish working at 22:00 on new year's eve and sleep at reception and start woking at 8:00 am on new year day. So everything like as usual!!


But Shiz chan and Haruko-san, Kie chan of our staff, and special little boss rickey came here and cooked okonomiyaki  and many things as volunteer for guests and me!!!

And also I appreciate the guests who joined us!!๐Ÿ’“
We celebrated a new year by Scottish style!! It was so much fun and interesting.

After that we went to shrine to pray by Japanese style. 
 ''Wish I get marry and lose weight around -10kg in 2018. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘''

May this year be full of smiles for everyone!! 

Tea Ceremony at Home

Hi! This is Nozomi from JHoppers Hiroshima.

Since my mother teaches tea ceremony, probably unlike most of Japanese family we often have maccha (green tea) at home.

We had it yesterday also.

Here is the photo of the tea and the sweet we had yesterday.


Tea ceremony has many branches but
* Omote Senke,
* Ura Senke and
* Mushano Koji Senke
are the main three branches nowadays.

My mother belongs to Ura Senke.
In Ura Senke, beat the green tea that the bubble (?) will be very small and smooth like the one in below picture.


The sweet was from my boyfriend. It is called "Kodai Yaki (means "ancient baked sweet")". A gift he brought from Nara prefecture. It was very very delicious!

Here is the close-up of "Kodai Yaki". 



And the package of the sweet :).


If you want to try green tea, you may find some useful information on this asoview site (sorry the site is in Japanese. Please have someone's help to find out the information you want!).
