It’s no secret that Imo (sweet potato) holds a special place in the heart of my stomach. Most of the teachers that work near me participate in what I like to call Imo culture. This Imo culture includes the exchange of new and long loved Imo products and trinkets. On this episode of “Love letter… Continue reading Love letter for いも [Episode 3]
Last week I was afforded the opportunity to join a Japanese cooking class. These classes are held once or twice a month. Pretty much, whenever Kumiko, the teacher is available. For a minimal fee, you are taught how to make some pretty basic Japanese food. During this lesson, we learned how to make sushi! We… Continue reading Japanese cooking class 
Can we take some time to discuss Korean food?! My years in Arizona exposed me to many new things. One of my favorite new things was Asian cuisine. I can’t remember how, but Sister Cynthia (my mom), found this random Asian market in Mesa called “Lee Lees”. I loved that place. They carried a truly… Continue reading Korean Food!!

いただきます！/itadakimasu/ Let’s eat On the eighth episode of “You ate what?!” we visit a cafe here in Himeji. I’d never heard of this cafe prior to yesterday’s visit. Chelli san mentioned it. And while I am absolutely the trillest, most hardest rapper that ever kilt (killed) the game, I like all the frilly stuff too.… Continue reading You ate what?! [Episode 8]
Every Thursday myself and another teacher host English Club. Its an opportunity for students who are interested in learning English to come and do fun activities. In the past they’ve made tacos, done games based off Korean t.v. shows, scavenger hunts and the like. Students chose all the events based on their likes and things… Continue reading English Club

Two of the classes that I teach are at the University. Those classes are jammed packed with adults of all ages, mostly seniors and retirees. In my introduction, I show… Continue reading Student art
いただきます！/itadakimasu/ Let’s eat On the sixth episode of “You ate what?!” we visit sushi! Real sushi! Ok, I feel like I need to explain that last part. When I say real sushi, its not a commentary on the difference between sushi in Japan and sushi in the U.S.. What I mean to say is, I’m used… Continue reading You ate what?! [Episode 6]
