Do you know what Takoyaki is?
It is a very popular meal/snack for western part of Japan specially Osaka.
Many households in Osaka / Kansai (Western Part of Japan) own Takoyaki cooker.
When you visit Osaka, this is something you must try.
There are many beer claiming to be non-alcoholic ... but I only see beer that truly nonalcoholic and zero carols ... Actually it is not an alcoholic beverage at all so kids can buy them (although what kind of kids like to drink beer like drink).
When you are in Japan, try it. 100% alcoholic free beers are available from SUNTORY and ASAHI ... KIRIN is also 100% alcohol free but has some calories.
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.
