For Yellow-belts: A New Topic Arrives.

My grandmother had only two grand-children, my elder brother and myself. So she loved us and took us anywhere we wanted to go, not to mention trips. She liked doing something for her family better than spending her time and money with her friends. I cannot thank her too much for what she did for us. Thanks to her, my brother and I had relatively wealthy childhoods. She has gone but if she were alive and offered to buy me something I want, I would ask her for dinner at a restaurant in a hotel commanding a wonderful nightlights and Nagasaki Port.

Yellow016:Which do you use oftener, supermarkets or convenience stores? Why?

During a period of excessively hot weather, you may even get reluctant to walk outside. I myself, too, try hard to make as few steps as possible for whole my body not to be covered with sticky sweat springing out here and there.Under a condition like this, a convenience store looks like an oasis in the desert. When I have time and use my car, I, of course, choose supermarkets. How about you? Which do you prefer, convenience stores or supermarkets?

 Please give your idea in the Yellow-belt training room.

Yellow015:Do you like watching TV? Why or why not?

The new topic is…
Yellow015:Do you like watching TV? Why or why not?

It has been said for a few decades that less people read newspapers and books. TV viewership, as well, is not an exception of this tendency.  As for me, though I like watching TV, the time I watch TV for has become much less than before. Perhaps I spend more time on the smartphone and the Internet-connected computer. What do you think about watching TV on an ordinary TV set? Provide your idea in the Yellow-belt training room.

    In summer, the first glass of beer seep into every fiber of my being. That may be true of most Japanese men, of course true of some women. Why do you think such liquid as is thought of as mere a bitter and unappetizing drink by children attracts many adults, young or old? Without beer, we might be able to live a healthier life, free from a bloated stomach. Let’s take good care of ourselves without drinking too much alcohol this summer. Anyway what do you like to drink when you start your meal?

Tokyo tower, Sunshine building were among the representative symbols of Tokyo when I was a country boy in Nagasaki. “60 Floors” 高かね~!空につくとじゃなかね?”How tall!! You know, it surely touches the sky.” We used to imagine like that. So I was so excited when my grandma decided to take me and my elder brother to Tokyo that I couldn’t sleep many nights. That was 1979, when Tokyo Disneyland did not exist. Wonderful memories. Tokyo has changed drastically and won’t stop changing forever. Then, what is Tokyo for you? Give us your ideas or memories here in the Yellow-belt training room.

Hi, yellow-belt students, まさ・ふくプロ again. I have changed and moved many many times in my life. Born in Nagasaki, I moved to Osaka to go to college. When I was 23, I came to Tokyo to work. The room the company gave me was in Saitama. I quit the job, and then I lived in Tokyo for a while. ・・・After that, changed changed moved moved Hahaha!! Please have a look at my latest posting at Dojo diary. I am thinking of living abroad in the future. Each town has its own charm. What is your place like? Why do you live there?

For Yellow-Belts: A New Topic Arrives.

 We are having a gloomy and humid weather, which may make you feel down. But during the depressing season like this, why don’t you dare to go out for a change? Just a cup of coffee in a cafe nearby may relax you and help you feel like trying hard another new week starting today. By the way, do you often go to Sushi restaurants? I rarely go. But Sushi restaurant chains are very popular among foreign people, not to mention Japanese. Please tell me why they attract so many people like that. Rush to the Yellow-belts’ Training Room!

For the Yellow-belts: Be Active In Writing About A New Topic!

Yellow009:Do you think reading books is important? Why or why not?

On June 25th, a new item was added to the Yellow-belts’ topic list.
The topic is, again,  similar to the one posted last week.

Yellow009:Do you think reading books is important? Why or why not?

People on the move tend more to indulge in on-line games, SNS, or watching video clips than to read books, no matter whether they are paper or electronic.

Do you read books? What about newspapers? What is important in reading? Write your opinion in the text box. You can also try to support the importance of paper newspapers in the Black-belts’ training room where the topic is available for opinions as anyone with any colored belt can join in any room if only he/she wishes.
