  • Also note the tatami floors in that dojo.
  • The makeup on the Kyoshi warriors begins with a white base and red, well-associated with maiko, geiko, and geisha culture in general.
  • The fans and the fighting style resemble aikido (using force against the opponent), and there is a good chance that much of the forms that the warriors practice are tessenjutsu kata.
  • The sea has elephant koi and an unagi, both of which are native in Japan’s seas (though I’m not too sure about the existence of elephant koi…).
  • The village itself has buildings that resemble those in Shirakawa-Go and Gokayama villages. They are done in the “gassho-zukuri” style, or the “prayer-hands construction”…see the triangular roofs. (On a side note, these places are very famous to go to in the winter.)
  • Lastly, Kyoshi island seems to be very picky about outsiders, so that leads me to assume that the place was very isolated for a time…if that doesn’t sound characteristic of Japan, well…

One of my good friends didn’t understand this either and complained that the white rice was too plain! I had to teach her to eat them together! I remember being so shocked that she didn’t know, but it’s because Mexican rice is very flavorful!

Yeah, and it’s that PLAINNESS that we want to go with every side dishes!! I know you understand, but many people from other food culture wonder why we prefer white rice to flavored rice.  It seems this is a big mystery to them! lol

I understand because of the Spanish way with bread—like the French, Spaniards eat bread with everything. It actually becomes a second utensil—fork in one hand, bread in the other to scoop &push the food around.

I’m American, and personally, I cannot eat bites of food without rice in between! I really think it varies from person to person, and it isn’t a cultural thing.

Hello Kumako-san! I have a question! Do many people in Japan have internet in their own homes? My host family in Osaka had internet, but some of my friends in college don't seem to have it in their apartments.

Hi there:)

Most people do have internet at home, I think, unless they are very very old. Some students may not…if they think their cellphones are good enough…but as far as I know, most students have laptops and internet in their apartment:)

THIS IS A MOST BEAUTIFUL THING.

lmao, i think it took us at least 2 hours? well, @nananothachi and @24-crayons did all the hard work, like beating the eggs and stuff. I helped with mostly cutting fruit and decorating. SO MUCH FRUIT @___@ and it was so hard to slice because it was so stuffed with fruit. XD it’s both light and filling. I’ll ask them for the recipe link and post it! :D

yuumegari  asked:

All of a sudden I thought of Zuko and his hair and fluffy clouds and Sokka and why is everything related to A:TLA sfjsalfjafkl (also. WOULDN'T YUYA MAKE A SMEX GOD OF A ZUKO.)

… I can’t really see him as Zuko (AS MUCH AS I LOVE BOTH), but

I DID JUST GET THE VISUAL IMAGE OF YUYA
