Hello everyone

Have you eat "unagi" ?

Unagi is a kind of fish which lives in river or lake.
It is named "Japanese eel" in English.

Japanese eat unagi,
because it is healthy, delicious, and traditional cooking
and It is also known as sustainable cooking

so, they often eat the hottest time of the year.
incidentally, next 31th July is "unagi day" in Japan

Would you like to try to eat?
Unagi is as delicious as sushi!

# photo is unagi cooking, I took a picture at unagi restaurant yesterday

Why Kamenashi ( from KAT-TUN)'s dramas have a low auctience ratings?

Please don't misunderstand, I don't mean to insult him.

But (maybe you know) most of TV dramas he acted in have had low auctience ratings except 'Gokusen'(ごくせん) and 'Nobuta(野ブタ)

For example,  'Mr.Brain',

24.8% (episode 1)  22.0% (Episode 2) 16.3% (Episode 3)  21.0% (Episode 4)

Kame acted in the drama on episode 3 (only).

Kamino Shizuku  was the drama which aired  from Jan-March this year. The average auctience ratings was 6.08%. It was not high ratings.

Why did Kame's dramas have low audience ratings?
Was he just unlucky  because other dramas he acted some years ago didn't have low audience ratings.
Wasn' t he good at acting?
Or do you think it is just rumor or it is Not true ?

Please tell your idea and impression!

12th-Jul-2009 07:53 am - New Staff Intorduction
Greeting from new staff  matchy 

I have lived in Tokyo for 6 years.
I like to eat Japanese food in restaurant (I can't cook...)
for example, yakiniku, sushi, soba, tenpura and so on.
so I think I need more exercise

I watch non-Japanease sports on TV, baseball(MLB), soccor(Serie A), tennis(Grand Slam) etc
and I also watch Hollywood movie, I watch all genre except horror.
especially, I like sci-fi movie, terminator, star wars etc

someday, I want to watch movie without Japanese title.
so, I study English and I exchange language(talk) to person who want to lean Japanese on Skype
but still can't write and speak well.

that's why if there is a recommended movie or comic, please tell me.

5th-Jul-2009 09:36 pm - J-CHA-YA New staff
New community staff  will join this  'J-CHA-YA' soon.

His lj name is matchy . He is Japanese and living in Tokyo.

Maybe he will introduce himself within 2-3 days.

He is working for some SEM consulting company but he is good at programing becuase he'd ever worked as an programmer.

He likes sports. He is interested in non-Japanese who are intereseted in Japan and Japanese. (He'd like to share ideas with non-Japanese people.)

I think he will answer 'Questions to Japanese'

Questions to Japanese:  http://community.livejournal.com/j_chaya/2965.html

I have to  tell you that he is (probably) Ikemen. :D  ( I think he looks like an Indian.)
