Hakodate: Last 100 Years About Oceanic Fishing

A good place to learn about the history of Hakodate. This is the museum of the company’s own home, where the collection of rich, informative.

Hakodate is a natural harbor, originally called Hakodate, it originated in a building built like a box of coast. In Europe and the United States under the requirements of the powers of Hong Kong, to 2017 is already the opening of the 152th anniversary.

Just across Goryokaku (Hakodate original castle), there is a presentation day Lu fishery, that is, the actual introduction of the Northern fishery, or even be able to see the Japanese museum of modern development, the Northern Museum.


More than 100 years ago the bustling Hakodate city. Originally as the largest city in Hokkaido, Hakodate’s position is much more important than it is now. Including the Meiji Restoration of the last war is also in the Hakodate of the five ribs occurred. You can see that there are many trading companies already exist. And many of them are engaged in fisheries. The earliest in the Sea of Japan, Heilongjiang fishing near the sea. Later entered the Northern Ocean.


Japan refers to the North, is now the Bering Sea, Okhotsk sea fishing ground. Through a territorial exchange treaty, Japan paid the South Island Island, won the Kuril Islands. Kuril Islands is a natural fishing ground, countless fishermen began to fly to the Kuril Islands fishing.


Explain very detailed, how to catch salmon. There are video to explain, demo. This is the first day of the company set up factories in Okhotsk, the production of canned salmon, dug the first pot of gold.


Think 2d is not realistic, you can see the model.


Then we introduced how to catch crabs. That is, we eat all kinds of shells on the long pointed thorny crabs.


How to deal with crabs as soon as possible, reduce costs, increase the storage area, the technical staff to create such a ship. Can be achieved from the salvage, processing, packaging through-train. Even in the 21 world, I see this calculation is tight, the layout is reasonable, the sea production line, can not help but praise.

After the Meiji Restoration, successful entrepreneurs, technical staff after another, in all respects, that era is the golden age.


The ship’s body, and the photos of the time. This boat is famous for its reason, because Kawabata Yasunari wrote the novel “Crab Boat”, which describes the incomparable hardships of the working people at the bottom. For me, the hardest thing is that every day thousands of crabs flow from the hands, no one can eat their own.


This is the crabs that have sharp tails on their backs. Alaska crab, king crab, and panda, do not know. But all very delicious.


The next is the accusations of whaling. Until modern times, whaling is not controversial, fishermen whale unloading eight, made a variety of products. Even whales have to make a brush (Otaru and a shop with whales to be crafts).


The following black is the gun used when whaling. It was later realized that this species, which was indispensable in the marine life chain, was about to be killed. And whales can produce products is not irreplaceable. So it began to prohibit whaling. Only one of Japan did not fully comply.


With Russia selling Alaska to the United States. Northern fishing into a small low tide, followed by crab boat, canned and enter the boom period.

However, the good times are not long, after World War II, especially the Soviet Union, the United States announced its own territorial waters, the exclusive economic zone, the Japanese northern fishing slowly into the end. A time is over.

Just a summary of the introduction, in fact, I visited the inside for 3 hours did not feel very seriously read all the information. This is a good place to learn about Hokkaido’s history.


Nara: Experience Hatsumōde in Japan

Hatsumode, that is, when the New Year, the first time go to a temple, shrine, to pray for the new year.

Japan had heard of Hatsumode very interesting, so take advantage of the new opportunities in Nara, experience a return.

About 10 o’clock, when it reluctantly left the white song on the TV, go to Kasuga Taisha Shrine.


There are already a lot of people on the way, completely unlike the night, no, it should be more than the daytime people more. Go to the shrine lined Omotesando food stalls ready to go.


“Master, first to a bean paste stuffing cake” “ok”


Saying so much sugar, the master’s body has been very good.


After eating and then go forward, was scared, a lot of people. In front of the white banner is the entrance of the place, the feeling is not too late, peace of mind waiting, by the way to listen to people around to chat. The weather is a bit cool, from time to time out a few drops of rain.


Approaching 12 o’clock, to look behind, a look at the end of the crowd, suddenly a sense of accomplishment arises spontaneously.


12 o’clock, was allowed to enter the shrine. But I am atheistic, this trip is to experience, no worship.


Go to the next after the Todaiji, close to Kasuga Taisha Shrine. Solemnly.


There are also many people waiting to visit, as non-worshipers I can also free access.


The bells of the New Year sounded one after another.


Wish new year good bells.

Because Hatsumode with some kind of religious nature, so it is best to respect local customs.

Nara: Horyuji’ s Temples

Put down the coffee, sit on the tram, came to Nara, in the Fulong Temple to find the deeds of the prince.

Prince Edward’s self-congratulation, adult ruling after sending Ono sister came to the Sui Dynasty in China. Began to study the Chinese era.

It is said that he can listen to multiple people at the same time.

As a reformer, he was printed on the old 10,000 yen


The age of the prince’s life is called the era of birds. He presided over the construction of the temple.

Horyu-ji Temple has the “oldest ancient wood complex”, is the Japanese national treasure, world heritage.

But to attract me is obviously that “funny day and” animation. A winter morning, from Nara to Horyu Temple.


The temple is large in size, but there is no large statue of Nara Temple. Is a room between.

From the door that is very common, and the difference between the ordinary temple nothing. In fact, this is because, after a lot of the temple is a reference to the construction of Falei Temple, improved, and then into Japanese style.

Look at the past two guard guards.


And then enter is the Western Academy Gala, the oldest place, said and the Sui and Tang style change little.


Five towers, the most prominent place of the building, which can enter, but there is no special baby.

After the Meiji Restoration, Buddhism was disgusted and the government stopped funding. Around the temple had to collect hundreds of thousands of years of cultural relics to the government in exchange for funds to maintain spending.

So look at cultural relics, but to go to a few national museums can see the real thing.


“That year they are here laughing slapstick ah” Although this would like to, but can not find any traces.


Very ancient temple, but the 7th century architecture, looks very mediocre, but the environment is very good


Very ancient corridor, attached to the five towers and Jintang, maybe the local rain more


Finally appeared, and then there is a room to introduce the life of Prince Edward deeds, there are a large statue (very short)


Prince Edward is the descendants of his title, he is the second prince, not the emperor.

But he introduced Buddhism, Japan’s holy deity to him as the founder, respect for the holy mountain holy mountain, Jerusalem is so.


Later, Prince Edward died, the Soviet Union and I attacked the country, killing the prince of the princes of the royal family. A sad ending.



From JR Nara Station, take JR Kansai Line and get off at the Felong Temple Station, then walk for about 20 minutes.

At JR Felong Temple Station, take a bus to the front of the Felong Temple and get off at the front of the hotel

From Kintetsu Nara Station, take the bus to JR Wang Temple Station and Felong Temple.

In Japan, “see school” is what we say to visit the factory, the company, to understand the production process, behind the scenes and the like a lot of activities. Weekend father and mother with a child to a place to see school, but also very interesting.

So this time to visit the hangar.

Ordinary people in addition to the plane, the aircraft can see the appearance of the aircraft before, usually have little chance to see the appearance of the aircraft. And JAL in order to let everyone more close contact with the aircraft, the way to cultivate customer loyalty, to provide them to visit their Haneda airport hangar services. (The process of applying at the end of the paper)

Although the weather is a bit hot, but the front desk of the service lady is very warm, help me complete the registration, made some publicity materials, by the way, this card can change 200 miles.

And then led us to Shui Gui, and made a helmet, told the three times the note (the main thing is to run on the runway)


Finally came to this ontology, hangar


This is the work area, placing the seat to be replaced.


Feeling this kind of workplace is very professional, in which a maintenance workers are also very proud of


A spring and autumn air strayed, looks like their maintenance is also done to Japan Airlines.


Uncle uncle out from the cabin, the way stopped to want to go around me.


The tail of the aircraft is a primary school collective visit, in the pictures, and then stop whistling soon


Sure enough, a plane flying, belly black I recognized this is my favorite blue, loudly said ANA’s beautiful, next to the uncle a black line, I am satisfied.

Yonaguni: Underwatr Heritage

Visit the monuments, looking for the breath of previous life, feeling the modern society is not easy.

The history of mankind, the rise of many ethnic groups, strong, decline, a few centuries after no one remembered their original look.

And the island of the shark, the horse is finished.

In fact, the most known is the seabed remains. There are a lot of stories about relics, but they are only speculation.

In 1986, someone diving first found a huge rock on the seabed. Very much like artificial manufacturing, cutting the way, roads, walls, caves of the form also. And this is a long and several hundred meters long and large stone.

In 1992, the Ryukyu University professor went to visit.

In 1998, the investigators filed an application for “discovery of relics” to the Okinawa Prefectural Bureau of Culture. Unfortunately, Okinawa refused to be a relic on the grounds that it could not be judged as a trail of human activity.

In 2016, with the country that again to promote the application for relics.

So, come through the short film to understand the submarine ruins it.

Wandering inside the ruins, it is difficult not to feel that they are living in a history of the coastal city, they have their own culture, sacrifice, totem, all this waiting time to answer it.IMG_5620

Hakodate: Know Everything about Northern Ethnic Groups

About the Ainu people living in Hokkaido, other peoples living in the Sea of Japan, the Okhotsk Sea, are rarely seen in history books or other information. Had the privilege of visiting the museum and learned some history.

Very early on the living in Hokkaido Aboriginal, Ainu people, interested, this came to Hakodate, in addition to understanding the history of fisheries, another want to understand is to introduce the history of the northern people of Ainu people Museum.

Hakodate City is actually very small, walking and walked to meet this museum.


Making beautiful props, from the appearance, the hair point of view, Ainu and the Japanese have a very significant difference, the origin of their divergent views, but it is certain that they are Hokkaido this land of the aborigines.

They are by boat, hunting walrus.


They are by boat, and whales, bears fight.


Bear, occupies an important position in the life of Ainu people.

Aunu people have a custom is that the young bear back to the village to raise, and then tied up to complete a religious ceremony.


Ainu people’s clothes are also varied, fur, hemp, and even the skin.


This Qing Dynasty official service is not Ainu people, but was responsible for the Heilongjiang estuary and local ethnic groups for the goods of the Qing Dynasty officials.


Ainu people, and even active in the Sea of Japan, the Okhotsk Sea of the various ethnic groups have their own characteristics of clothing. These are seldom known. Their costumes are close to the northeastern ethnic minorities in China.


This dress is similar to the Japanese style of clothing, Ainu people usually wear a lot of pieces to keep warm.


Fishing is a very important means of maintaining a living, the canoe is very rare.


With the Japanese colonial Hokkaido, the status of Ainu became slaves, the number decreased until the 80s of last century, Ainu people have been recognized.

Each nation has its own unique culture and contributes to the diversity of the world.

New Yokohama: Ramen Museum

In Shin-Yokohama, there is a place called “Ramen Museum”, before you think it should be talking about the origin of the surface, spread the knowledge of it, the results are wrong.

Ramen Museum near Shin-Yokohama Station. The Shin-Yokohama Station in fact is far from Yokohama, and it is station which we prepared for the Shinkansen. From Tokyo to Shin-Yokohama is very inconvenient.

I bought a ticket at the door, and then down to the ground floor, there is a surprise to the Showa era. Like a studio, the atmosphere of the street is very good.

Showa styled street
Showa styled street

Because it is more than 10 o’clock in the morning, so the line is not a lot of people. But also a lot of. I first came to this Bo Duo dolphin bone ramen, famous island Pavilion. The menu has a normal bowl, a small bowl (for those who want to try a few stores for the sake of people), but everyone must point a bowl, it is estimated that there are a lot of people only a bowl of points to eat.


Finally turn to me, I did not eat breakfast so hungry, and I directly point the normal bowl, soup is very strong, pork is also good.


Finished a thick pork bone noodles, I go out to see the turn right, feel the name is very good, a lot of people queuing, give up.


Then in this small street wandering, the way to digest. See what I found, wanted the warrant.


Along the stairs to the second floor, see a famous Hokkaido flavor increase surface, called sumire.


Point the taste of the house to raise the surface, good strong taste flavor, good thick, finished this bowl on the full.


Want to go to this museum, must eat less, and play inside, when each shop should eat less.
