Hey, I would like to share with you about Japanese traditional things again for you!

last time I wrote about a food stall.(You can see my previous article)

https://www.sakura-hotel-ikebukuro.com/blog/2018/11/japanese_traditional_things_to_do.php

First topic is "vehicle".

As many forigners know that there is a bullet train called "shinkansen".

It began on octorber 1st 1964 which is nine days before the opening ceremony of the Tokyo olympics.

It has attracted attention from the world as the fastest train!

Normally the ticket is expensive but worth spending money, considering of time needed.

You might have already heard about "MORI building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM by Teamlab" before.

Though 2 staff of Sakura already written about this, I want to write about it too because it was not just amazing but inspiring.



First of all, you definitely better get a ticket online in advance.
I've heard that depends on the day, you will be needed to wait about an hour even if you have a ticket already.

Today I would like to share with you about Japanese traditional things which you might be interested in.

One day one of our guests asked me where food stall is. The guy wanted to have an experience he have never done in Japan before.

So I thought that here is a good opportunity to tell you like a foreigner the answer.

Vuelvo con una nueva entrada de este diario del staff de recpción del Sakura Hotel en Ikebukuro.

Como de costumbre voy a ir poniendo algunas fotos de cosas que he visto, comido por la zona estos días.

Las bolas de arroz rellenas llamadas Onirigi son como los bocadillos o los sandwiches occidentales, es la típica comida informal y puede estar relleno de casi cualquier cosa.

Mucha gente los prepara en su casa y se los lleva al trabajo, al colegio, de excursión, etc. Aunque también se venden en supermercados, en tiendas de comida para llevar e incluso en tiendas esecializadas en servir solamente Onigiris.

Se trata de una bola de arroz que en muchas ocasiones va envuelta por un trozo de alga nori como el que se usa para los maki-sushi y así lo puedes conjer por el lado de el alga y no mancharte las manos, pero dependiendo del relleno en ocasiones se prescinde de este envoltorio.

Los rellenos más típicos son el de ciruela encurtida Umeboshi, de atún, de atún con mayonesa, de huevas de salmón y de alga combu.

Estos que veis en la foto son de una tienda de Onigiris que hay dentro de la misma estación central de Tokio, se trata de su especialidad, Onigiris de tempura de gamba, y os puedo asegurar de que esta realmente buenos.

Las patatas fritas cubiertas con chocolate no es nada raro en Japón. Estas que veis en la foto son del tipo de patatas "Pringles" pero también están muy ricas, a mi me encantan.
