Dinner at “Korean Dining Lu(:)”

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Hurry up, ‘cause the instructor’s schedule is becoming busy right now.

This is the first time that Korean Dining “Lu” appears on my blog. It is located at two blocks south of Mitsukoshi department store, and on the opposite side of Shimizu Food Center. Mitsukoshi Department store will soon be closed and I am afraid of giving you an inaccurate information. So please use the following numbers on Google maps.

I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the restaurant. So my photo starts from a cup of Makgeolli. When I ordered, I thought “Ah, it will be just a little of Makkolli in small glass”. But they gave me more Makkori in bigger cup than I expected.


Anyway, it is always Sundubu jjigae in the new Korean restaurant.


Clam without shells.


The dining is very clean. Actually I thought the clean restaurant serves expensive meal. But I should say, it had been just my prejudice. The charges I paid was quite reasonable in this Korean restaurant “Korean Dining Lu(:)”.

■ 個人授業3:1時間半:教材自作だが、みんなの日本語の練習Aに準拠


2回:教案作成はたったの30分、しかしパワーポイント・プレゼンテーションを作成したので、これに20時間要した。おぞましい時間の使い方だが、パワポ作成は、まあこのくらい時間が かかるものであろう。学習者の注意関心を引きつけられていないのがどうしても気になっていたので、この際思い切ってやってみたものである。正味が62スライドで、基本のあいさつ、語彙導入、文型確認、そして、できる日本語・赤の1-1の会話。枚数的には90分に足りないような気がしていたが、実際は120分以上使えそうだった。要するに今回のレッスンでは全部終わらなかった。学習者の注意を引きつける一定の効果はあったようである。しかしいったんプレゼン形式で授業を始めてしまうと、学習者の反応に関するメモを取りにくいので、記録が残らない。学習者がどのように反応したかは、次回の授業内容の吟味の際に必要なものであるため、きちんと記録を取る何らかの工夫が必要と感じた。

Dinner in Chinese Restaurant “Harupin Sancho (Harbin Can ting)”-3

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Hurry up, ‘cause the instructor’s schedule is becoming busy right now.

On Wednesday I went to Haerbin Canting (hā ěr bīn cān tīng, 哈尔滨餐厅, Harupin Sancho, Halupin Sancho, Harubin Sanchou, Harbin Restaurant) in Furumachi. It was for my dinner. For your convenience, the following is latitude and longitude for Google maps.


To tell the truth, I went to Tosho-hanten in Honcho first. But the restaurant was closed because now is the time of Chinese New Year. They are having a long vacation. I wish the family take a good rest and come back to Niigata in March. What was in my head was Shrimp with Chili sauce when I was heading to Tosho-Hanten. I saw the restaurant was being closed and then I turned to Harpin Canting.


My mind was so much occupied with Chili Sauced Shrimp, as I got to Harbin Canting, I immediately ordered it and rice without checking the menu. Actually I should have ordered “Ebi Tama Han” which was a set menu with several dishes with chili sauced shrimp. But I think it is okay, because sometimes it is good to have a simple meal like you see in the photo.


Japanese call this famous Chinese food dish “Ebichili”.

By the way, this is Harbin Can ting. So the name of the restaurant tells us that they came from the northern part of China. I asked the lady in the restaurant, with several Chinese restaurants’ names in Niigata, if there was a  Chinese restaurant whose cook came from the southern part of China. She was not sure. Even she was not sure for names of other Chinese restaurants. Although I had an impression that Chinese people would have a strong tie with other Chinese as a network in a foreign country like here, maybe I am not correct. Perhaps it is because this Harupinsancho is located in the center of night entertainment area of Furumachi. The customers are coming midnight and early morning. Open hours of this restaurant are different from other Chinese restaurants in Honcho. So she has less time to communicate with other Chinese. But these are just my guesses.


Of course I left this package. When I asked her “Zhong guo ren lai ma?” She answered to me “Lai”. This time my Chinese was smoothly understood.





Dinner in Korean Restaurant “Sumire” -3

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”.  The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. I am looking forward to seeing you in my Japanese lesson.

Anyway, I have just had my dinner in Sumire (すみれ) which is a Korean restaurant in Furumachi. The lady in the restaurant is very friendly. You can enjoy talking to her. Find the place using the following latitude and longitude with Google maps.


This is the third time for me to come to Sumire. Tonight there were two “Joren” customers. Joren means a customer who visits the restaurant quite often and is known to the master well. I am a kind of new guy here, so tonight I just tried being silent(:D). But, you know, it is also a fun to listen to what other customers say. I enjoyed hearing their stories and eating Kimchi chige.

I could see several new things tonight. The board is new with an illustration of Korean lady.


Beer and side dishes. You can see the corner of “Menu” on right side of the photo. It seemed that the menu was also recently made.


Boiling Kimchi chigae with a lot of Tofu inside. What is the border line between Kimchi chigae and Dupu Chigae? Although it is not a big issue.
