Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson” which is taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Come to my class on Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon. Please check the latest information on this site for the exact time and room numbers. 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.
And tonight I went to Yasuya in Minatomachidori 3 nocho for my dinner. It is a Chinese restaurant actually famous for its reasonable menu. The restaurant is located in 200 meter southwest from Shimuzu Food Center Minatomachi-ten. For accurate location, please google the latitude and longitude below.
It was windy and rainy, but somehow I could get to the restaurant in the residential area.
I ordered a 1-go (180ml) of Japanese Sake. The lady poured sake a lot to the Tokkuri bottle. It seemed to be more than 180ml. As you see in the photo, the color of label changed from yellow to light green. Soon you will see this “paper towel for promotion” in Korean, Chinese, Thai, and India restaurants around Furumachi (hope so).
Actually I try to eat less oil because my health check in May 2018 said that my cholesterol level is too high. So I changed my eating habit. I haven’t taken much oil these days. It sometimes makes me crazy for oily food, so tonight, I broke my rule not to eat oily food. I ordered a Yuurinchii (油淋鶏yóulínjī) set.
Ah, it was a big fried chicken. My dinner costed 1,026 JPY. Youlinji set menu was 550yen, one tokkuri of sake was 400yen, and 8% of sales tax. Anyway I strongly recommend you going to “Yasuya” and eating a lot of Chinese food.
When I gave the lady “Promotion paper towel”, I asked her “Zhong guo ren lai ma?” I meant “Do Chinese come (to this restaurant)?” hoping that she gave it to Chinese customers. She didn’t get what I said a while. When I opened the door to leave, she has got it and said “Zhong guo ren lai ma?”. I was so happy that my simple Chinese was understood by her.
