Bullet Train ... Shinkansen 新幹線

thread
Bullet Train ..... Bullet Train ..... Bullet Train .....
There are three class of bullet trains between Tokyo and Osaka.

- Nozomi
- Hikari
- Kodama

Your Japan Rail Pass covers Hikari and Kodama but Nozomi is excluded. Nozomi covers Tokyo to Shin-Osaka (552.6km or 345 miles) in about 2 hours 30 minutes. Hikari takes about 3 hours (depending on the number of stops) and Kodama takes about 4 hours.

Most trains require you to have seat reservation. You should be able to get the reservation at any station.

I recommend you seat at the north side of the train for two reasons. Sun shines from the south most of the time and you need to lower your shade to block the sun. North side, you get to see Mt. Fuji ... if you are lucky.

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.

Sister Acts: How Music Can Help You Learn a New Language

thread
Language and music are deeply entwined. They are sisters to each other, both rooted in rhythm, tone, and melody. Likewise, they both have a learning curve to the newcomer. But, the beauty is, these two can be combined for an incredible result; learning a new language (www.japanese-online.com/page/lessons-basics-characters) with the help of music is incredibly effective.
 
It was previously thought that language and music used two differing brain functions. Speech functions were localized in the left-brain hemisphere and language in the right. But scientific advances in brain imaging technology have challenged that idea as of late. In fact, it’s becoming increasingly clear that there’s a whole lot of overlap between the two. The data is overwhelming that music can aid in one’s quest (www.fluentu.com/blog/learning-language-through-music/?nabe=4857995676876800:1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F) to learn a new language.
 
How it Helps
 
If you were asked, “Which letter comes before R?”, you would probably have to sing the alphabet song in order to remember it is ‘Q’. Ask any kindergartener, and you will realize that, even at a young age, we become aware rather quickly of the perks of memorizing things in conjunction with music. It’s true, the power of music is seldom matched (https://ledgernote.com/columns/music-theory/circle-of-fifths-explained/), both in terms of its memorization benefits and its complexity itself. For instance, think about how much easier it is for you to memorize your favorite song than it was to memorize your multiplication tables.
 
You see, certain songs trigger memories (https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-athletes-way/201312/why-do-the-songs-your-past-evoke-such-vivid-memories), just like the way scent does. Music can help ingrain in your mind events that happened years ago, and it can help you to recall them with ease. Channeling this tool when it comes to memorizing a new alphabet and language is just as effective. There is no reason you can’t help yourself memorize the hiragana and katakana alphabets with music. Not only will this make the process easier, but it will most likely make it more fun and interesting, too.
 
How it Works 

The brain is an “association machine”. It remembers new information by connecting it with the information already there (www.newsmax.com/FastFeatures/parts-of-the-brain/2016/05/23/id/730269/). So, the memories or facts you most easily remember are those that get linked, whether consciously or subconsciously, to memories and information already there. Simple enough, right? Just remember that for you to retain the vocabulary and store it in your long-term memory, you have to creatively connect them with something else. If you were trying to memorize the Japanese word “Oboemasu”, you could think of the oboe, a musical instrument, and you could pair “masu” with another word it reminds you of, perhaps the word, “massage”. 

Songs create these same kinds of opportunities for making connections, which is why they’re so memorable. There are plenty of people who can’t remember their friend’s birthdays, yet they know all of the words to hundreds of songs. By pairing new vocabulary with music, you not only allow your brain to make more connections to the new words you are learning, but you target the rhythmic side of music and language that pair so well together, too.

Foot Ticket and Vending Machine --- 食券販売

thread
Foot Ticket and... Foot Ticket and... Foot Ticket and...
Many small chain of Japanese restaurants, you select what you want to eat and pay at the vending machine. The machine give you a ticket and you take it to the counter. That is how you order.

Have you ever seen the system like this anywhere?

By doing this, the shop employee would never handle cash and there is no crime to hold up the restaurant either.
