@日本深度文化之旅(Japanese deeply culture)
Junichi Mitsubori, a third-generation wagashi artisan of traditional Japanese sweets store has long engaged in wagashi-making since his childhood. About a year ago, he began to call himself a master of Kado (way of confection) or wagashi artist, just like a master of Chado (way of tea or tea ceremony). Wagashi is broadly classified into two groups: the ones eaten daily such as manju and dango, and Jo-Namagashi served with matcha at tea ceremony. Jo-namagashi is usually created upon customer’s requests.
Wagashi artisans talk to hosts of tea ceremony about what to make suitable for the season, guests or purpose. Most of the Jo-namagashi are Nerikiri, which are made of sweetened white bean tinted with colors and designed according to the season. Things in nature are depicted on a small piece of the bean paste. Sophisticated wagashi like Nerikiri originated back in the Edo period (1603-1868) and they were naturally produced by artisans’ hands unlike today’s mass production by molds and machinery.
Wagashi Demonstration at Kochuan
The Ryumeikan Sobukan is a traditionnal japanese dojo in LIège, in the Longdoz area. It is one of the very few permanent dojo of the city since its creation in 1987. They are associated with Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha school and to the association that is promoting this school, the Nihon Sobudo Rengokai. The Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha is a versatile school which studies several martial arts in parallel, all of them based on Aikido. The study of all these disciplines helps the students to get a broader approach of martial arts and to get a better understanding of the techniques and mouvements.
3.盆栽藝術(beauty of bonsai)
The art of bonsai enshrines the grandeur of nature in a miniscule pot. Shunkaen Bonsai Museum, in Edogawa-ku, opened in 2002 to spread the depth of the world of bonsai vastly to the world—an ambition of Kunio Kobayashi, bonsai artist and winner of two of Japan’s three most prestigious honors: the Prime Minister’s Award and the Higashi-Kuninomiya International Culture Award. The garden with carp swimming gracefully in the pond and the classically sublime Japanese-style house are lined with over a thousand works of bonsai. Each miniature tree is tasteful in a unique way, and all embody beauty and dignity.

Rural paintings on house exteriors capped by the imposing rock face of the Zugspitz massif and Bavaria’s white and blue skies - that’s the first impression you get when arriving in Garmisch- Partenkirchen. The place is not only famous due to Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze (2,962 m); the Olympic Games, World Cup ski races and New Year ski jumping have helped to make Garmisch-Partenkirchen well known and popular throughout the world as an outstanding Alpine resort. And in summer, there’s mountaineering and hiking, mountain biking and Nordic walking, golf and tennis. Experience just how intensive each day can be – in the great outdoors and in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
LECH ZÜRS AM ARLBERG, Austria
The reason people love Lech Zürs is because it’s so compact and cosmopolitan all at the same time; because of the outstanding (not to mention extensive) choice of skiing to be enjoyed on the Arlberg, the glorious countryside, the friendships you can strike up here and the feeling of always being welcome. And of course, because of the wonderfully snowy winters, the perfect green summers, its convenient location (just two hours away from Zurich and three from Munich), the peace and quiet of the lofty mountain pastures, or simply because of the combination of all of them. To visit Lech Zürs is to fall in love with it for a lifetime.
