Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. The lesson is usually done on Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon. Please check the latest information on this site for the exact time and room numbers. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. The nearest bus stop is Ishizuecho, however some buses don’t stop at this bus stop. In such a case, please get off a bus at Honcho and come back a little to the direction of Shinano River. The instructor has finished “Japanese Language Teacher Training Course (420 hours and above) and passed the “Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test” administered by the Japan Educational Exchanges and Services on October 22, 2017.
Last night I went to Manpukuen in Honcho for my dinner. The restaurant is in front of Takeyama Hospital. It is near the back door of Itoyokado supermarket. Please google the latitude and longitude below for exact location.
It was a just before 9 p.m., already a little late for dinner. So there was only one customer other than me.
A glass of Chinese sake makes me feel better. Ten packs of paper towel with yellow label are advertisement of my Japanese Lesson. I am not sure but I think I made 160 of this. This in the photo is actually the last 16th. I gave it to the lady in the restaurant. Last time I gave the same 10 packs. She said she gave it to “Liuxuesheng” which means international student(s).
I ordered Hoikourou (回鍋肉, 回锅肉, huíguōròu) set menu. Can you believe this costs only 650 yen? Since the glass of Chinese sake “Shoukoushu” is 380 yen, my dinner was just 1,030 yen. I think this is the cheapest combination of set menu and one glass of alcohol. In other restaurant, it costs more.
It is said that Chinese Food in Japan is different so much from the original Chinese food. This Hoikourou dish was cooked by Chinese in Niigata. But I don’t know whether the taste is different from real Chinese food or not. Actually it was salty, but it’s okay. Prices are very reasonable and the lady is very polite. Go there and eat a lot of Chinese food!
