There are so many people who can’t go back to their home because of radiation, even though, 2 years passed after the great east Japan earthquake.  So people who live in Iwaki city, Fukushima prefecture decided to hold this event to support those who can’t go back to home.

People who went there said that it was very good opportunity to meet local people and talk about their memories.

They hold this event every month.

2 years… it seems very long time, but the great east Japan earthquake is not history for them yet.

Healthy Drink

smoothie-1     Recently, a healthy drink is trending among the women. There are two types of drinks. One is Smoothie. It is a drink that whole fruits or vegetables are blended by blender. It looks pulpy. It has a lot of dietary fiber, so if you drink it you can feel full. The other is Juice. It is a drink that strained the smoothie. It hasn’t a dietary fiber, but it has a lot of nutrition of fruits or vegetables their selves. I recommend Smoothie for people of constipation, people of dieting, and children. I recommend Juice for people have weak digestion, babies and little children, persons of advanced age. Let’s enjoy the Smoothie and Juice!

Dragon Ball

1362380915_1_1I went to watch ‘‘Dragon Ball’’ with my high school friend whom I hadn’t seen since I left for Boston. I was so glad to see her and that she haven’t forget me while I was far! Dragon Ball is one of the most famous Anime in Japan and it is popular even among foreigners. The comics consist of 60 comics, the author is Akira Toriyama. This is the story about Goku who has a strong power and he tries to beat the evils. Actually I don’t know about it well. Why did I choose it? Because I was just curious. Basically I like anime and comics. But never watched Dragon Ball! I thought that I was far from being a fan of Anime without Dragon Ball! Actually that movie was not bad. This time the evil who is against Goku is Bils, who is the god of destruction. He can destroy anything even the earth. I enjoyed. After that, I went to O-syo(餃子の王将) to eat some Gyoza! Those were so delicious!! There were only men, who were middle age, around me, but who cares! Two women college students ate a lot!
