Did you know there is a steak house in Japan that sell the meat by the gram and cook it for you. They have just open the store in New York. I found it fascinating to see this restaurant last time I was in Japan.

The steak you see weigh 415 grams ... about 14 oz. It was cooked perfectly and it only cost 2,697 yen or US$24. Next time you go to Japan, make sure you look for this restaurant.

Taxi in Japan

A Black Car with Green Licen... A Black Car with Green License Plate
It is a taxi cab.
Do you know how to spot a taxi cab in Japan ... There ares some obvious signs like little light at the top of the roof and name of cab company on the side. But, one distinguishing feature of Taxi in Japan is "Green License Plate".

Taxi must be licensed by the government and when the cab and cab driver is licensed, they receive green license plate. If you get on the taxi cab with white license plate, it is an unlicensed cab. It is called SHIRO-TAKU (White Taxi) and it is illegal.

That is one of the reason why you see no UBER or LYFT in Japan. You cannot operate Taxi or Ride Share without government license and the fares are highly regulated as well. No you know how to spot a taxi cab in Japan.

Japanese Calligraphy

Japanese Calligraphy kakizome kakizome Can you understand the meani... Can you understand the meaning of this kanji?

The Japanese calligraphy called shodo is one of the most sophisticated arts in Japan.

These days, most Japanese usually use pencils or ballpoints to write letters and other documents. But the Japanese calligraphy, where an ink-dipped brush is used artistically to create Japanese-kanji and Japanese-kana characters, remains a traditional part of Japan’s culture.

As an example, Japanese students learn the basics of calligraphy in penmanship classes during the elementary school.

On top of that, at the beginning of year Japanese write calligraphy known as kakizome, where they create calligraphic works symbolizing their wishes and hopes for the new year.
