Hello everyone.
My name is Yuming. and I am a Japanese language teacher & counselor. I am going to give a seminar for the first time. The theme is Japanese seasonal dishes and the god of food. In Japan, each event has its own specific dishes to eat. For example, what do you think is eaten on July 7, Tanabata (Star Festival)? There are also many food-related shrines in Japan. They are all related to a certain animal. Which animal is it? The clue is the "kon-kon" sound. I hope you have a relaxed time while watching this seminar. You will learn about Japanese food and shrines, so you can look forward to traveling to Japan♪
*Because this is before the JLPT exam, we will be introducing N2 level content as we go along.
