One of the most popular pastime for Japanese people is to go and stay in Japanese ryokan which has a natural hot spring or an onsen.（日本人が最も好きな余暇の過ごし方は、温泉のある旅館に行くことです。）
Onsen with open-air baths called rotenburo have become popular among people of all ages. （外にある温泉は露天風呂といわれ、全ての世代の人たちに愛されてます。）
The best hot spring place in Japan I really like is Hakone. Hakone is located in Kanagawa Prefecture and it takes only two hours to go to Hakone from Tokyo by car. （私が日本にある温泉で一番好きな場所は、箱根です。東京から車でわずか二時間で行くことができます。）
The air is cool and nice and also there are so many good ryokan. （空気がきれいで澄んでいて、多くのいい旅館があります。）
I'm sure that you can feel Japanese Hospitality called "Omotenashi".（きっと日本の「おもてなし」を受けることができるでしょう。）
If you have free time and want to recover from your fatigue, you should visit Hakone, which is awesome. （もし時間があって、疲れを癒したいなら、ぜひ箱根を訪れてみて！ほんとに最高！！）
Shibuya crossing is the world's busiest pedestrian crossing and also a popular place that makes the most traveler's list of top recommendations.
Thousands of pedestrian all cross at same time from five directions ( Up to 3,000 people use the crossing per green cycle.)
Why is the crossing so busy?.......
Shibuya is one of the major shopping districts in Tokyo and so many people are walking between various stores near the crossing. Also, there are so many things to do such as restaurants, movie theaters, karaoke. If you're bored and getting nothing to do, it would be good idea for you to hang out in Shibuya to kill some time.
Interns are meeting / having breakfast with Mayumi Nakamura, President of PSPinc in Tokyo. Hotel buffet breakfast is so good in Japan especially at Hotel New Otani, Tokyo. It cost 3,800 yen ($35) but with member's club, it has some discount.
I am writing this blog to the people who are planning to visit Japan. If you like Japanese style Pork Cutlet called "Tonkatsu とんかつ", you need to try Tonki in Meguro.
This is one of the best Tonkatsu in Tokyo. But Tonkatsu is such a popular item in Japan, you can find many Tonkatsu restaurants and most of they are very good. But Tonki will serve in the counter only environment. You need to try this.
DepaChika means "Departmentstore" + "Chika Underground". It is the basement floor of department stores. In japan, Depachika is dedicated to selling food items. If you get there after 6:00pm, many of the items are discounted 30 ~ 50%.
Since 1996, Japanese-Online has been provided as a free service from PSPINC with the purpose of providing resources to individuals interested in learning about the Japanese Language and culture.
Japanese-Online has content suited to varying levels of study, including lessons for beginners as well as lessons tailored for those who need grammar and writing resources. Lessons are best suited to those who have basic understanding of hiragana and katakana alphabets before moving on to the more advanced grammar and particle lessons. Grammar lessons focus on learning about writing and creating more complex sentences and most lessons will not use romaji (Japanese sounds written with roman letters). Kanji is used in the lessons with hiragana and English translations provided.
