Ginza Yossou

EVENT
The Japanese Fast Food?!
The store’s most recommendable dish is Mushi Zushi Set, named “Fufu Mushi” (couple steaming” (1,500yen), with a big Teacup steamed egg pudding and conger eel, which have been loved since the store opened in 1866.

Their Teacup steamed egg pudding is as big as a “donburi” bowl and has an enough volume. There are 9 ingredients in it such as tender Ooyama chicken with boiled fish paste, their original crunchy Fu, etc.

Although I can’t help thinking it’s too enough already, the steamed sushi which comes with the teacup steamed egg pudding also gives super rich taste with the soup of Shiitake and vinegar worked into rice pretty much. Also, on the top of rice, exquisite balance of sweet flavored juicy eel and twist-cut egg, and shrimp paste fry won’t let your chopsticks stop!!

Actually the main store is located in Nagasaki. Nagasaki used to be the only city that had the door to the world back in Edo era which led to be exerted on lots of influence from other foreign cultures.Because of this situation, it was rather easy for them to get rare ingredients such as sugar back then and this is why their original and rich food culture was established.

The Japanese Fast Food?! - Ginza Yossou

Thus, until now they prefer sweet flavored with many kinds of ingredient.
Yossou’s “Fufu Mushi” got popular because of its characteristic as Japanese Fast Food that was made as a healthy and easy-to-cook menu for people who worked at Fish market around the main store in Nagasaki. So why don’t you try this Japanese fast food to make both of your mind and body warmer after shopping in Ginza?

Now, students are working on

EVENT
to achieve the connection beyond the border.
In Japan, there are quite a few student associations which were established on the purpose of the achievement of international exchange and amity. However, practically, the connection between them hardly exists and each of them has been isolated to each other. In 1998, the students who feared of this situation established Student Conference Network. (SCN)
At that time, only few members were joining this association, after having pursued the settlement of network for mutual enlightenment, mutual understanding and mutual cooperation, now it has its 11-years history, with being consisted of many associations such as ALSA (The Asian Law Students' Association), Japan-India Student Conference, Japan-Vietnam Student Conference, Japan-China Student Conference, Japan-Korea Student Conference, Japan-Kenya Student Conference, and International Student Association (ISA), Japan Norway Student Forum, and RING.

The role of SCN is, with Network, to support International Exchange Associations which is doing academic activities which take their free position as students. It is significant for exchanging and sharing information effectively to create the connections among all of the International Youth beyond the border, with breaking the conventional isolated situation of each student association.
“Information sharing” is necessary for the improvement of the quality of each association activity. That would bring motivation to their activities by stimulating to each other.
The procedure of the creation of SCN-To break the border and to connect-
That might be a universal challenge which is something to do with international exchange itself.

Multicultural delivery2

EVENT
From U.K
~Recognition born in daily life~
First of all, although I was supposed to talk about Multicultural delivery I have faced this time, I would like to change the subject to my cultural experience in U.K since I got to have a wonderful experience as a “foreigner” there.
The purpose of visiting U.K was to attend the congress of Trans-cultural nursing society which was held in Bournemouth. Bournemouth is 2h drive from London and has a splendid beach resort. At the congress, I got to interact with many people who engage in trans-cultural nursing from all over the world which gave me the times of fulfillment.
Besides from the congress, I also got a meaningful experience in Bournemouth and London which led me to think about this new thing; the difference of recognition between people from Japan and U.K. When I got on a train, it was obvious enough to know that each of 5 people sitting has a different racial background. However, there was no one who thought it was not “natural” or were staring at them. I wondered what would happen if it was in Japan.
Also, the workers at the hotel I was staying at were from Spain, Armenia, and Portugal.
Both in city and suburb, people have chances to interact people from different backgrounds. It doesn’t matter whether they are aware of it or not, it will be into a part of daily life and be recognized as “daily life”.
After I came back to Japan, I felt that Japan is filled with majority- Japanese once again. You might feel uncomfortable about interacting with foreigners if you don’t have that kind of experience. You might not even have an opportunity to meet them unless you go to Okubo which is a town famous for the population of foreigners.
But it is so true that people from other countries are supporting this country’s labor and has become a part of the society. I’m not saying it is bad to be surprised at the difference, I’m saying it is necessary to think about the next step; How to accept those people. In Japan, it is still not common to have interactions with foreigners as a usual thing. Thus, it would be better to start with “recognizing” their existence and try to get a chance to know them for the next step; having the recognition of “symbiosis”..

What’s Food Analyst?TsurutontanInterview

What was the reason to become a Food Analyst?
・I always loved to eat and thought it would be great if I can
make it my lifework.

What do you think is the most important thing for your work?
・Since I have to judge professionals’ works by my own eyes
and tongue, I always keep it mind to assimilate any news related to food and to appreciate to them.

What would you like people to know by this Food Analyst
qualification?

・The importance and happiness of food, and also the heart of
the people who engage in food.
While tremendous amount of information is surrounding us, I
want to guide people to the way they can have enjoyable and healthy food life.

Tsurutontan

This is a fancy Udon (Japanese noodle) restaurant with a long line of people.

The name, Tsurutotan came from the combination of the sounds of eating Udon
“Tsurutsuru”,

making dough out of wheat “Tonton”, and cutting into a noodle “Tantan”.

The store has a classic atmosphere enough for a couple to go for a date.

But I was amazed by the looking of the most popular flavor, “Kitsune no Oudon” (¥680) for the first time.

A HUGE 15cm fried tofu was completely covering Udon on a 30cm bowl.You never know
how happy you can be when you fill your mouth with the deep-drowned fried tofu until you actually try it.My favorite is its Tsuyu(noodle soup).

The Kansai type of the soup is slightly sweet with the taste of edible kelp and dried bonito.
I heard the soup is used with being kept adding.

The Udon from Sanuki, which can never be a supporting role, is made by the handsome
professional chefs in a counter-by stepping with feet in a traditional way before getting it
lie down for a half day.

Fresh with smoking dish will be served after you ordered.
There are also private rooms.

It would be wonderful to have Udon at the end of enjoying some Sake or Shochyu or
maybe the master who is also a sommelier’s recommended wine.

Actually there are always around 50 kinds of Udon menu including seasonal ones.

Probably it would be a long way to try them all even if you go for a lunch everyday!

When it gets cold, try Nabeyaki Udon(¥1550). Crispy conger and chicken make the
soup milder.

Anyway, isn’t the Udon place where you need a reservation to go at night kind of
cool?

That Is Friendly to Foreigners As Well”



The Pioneer that Contributes to Multiculturalism in the Field of Medicine

As the number of long-stay foreigners is increasing, the number of foreign women who give birth in Japan is also increasing rapidly. However, it is still challenging for them to give birth and to raise the kids with the existence of the language barrier. We interviewed Ms. Yukari Fujiwara, the pioneer midwife and researcher in nursing care of foreign expectant mothers, who strives to improve the current situation.

The Pioneer that Contributes to Multiculturalism in the Field of Medicine

EVENT
As the number of long-stay foreigners is increasing, the number of foreign women who give birth in Japan is also increasing rapidly. However, it is still challenging for them to give birth and to raise the kids with the existence of the language barrier. We interviewed Ms. Yukari Fujiwara, the pioneer midwife and researcher in nursing care of foreign expectant mothers, who strives to improve the current situation.
Why did you decide to assist foreign women?

As it happened, I worked at a hospital in Shinjuku-ku where many foreigners visit. Back then, people from various nations attended birth. I got the sense that language barrier and differences in culture were both mental and physical burdens to them. That became the trigger that motivated me to accumulate experience and to do research.
The experiences of doing research in cross-cultural nursing and being in the field were really valuable. Since Australia is a country that has many immigrants, there is a basis for people of various nations to live together. Because Japan has a different stand in the way people think about foreigners and the national system is also totally different, we cannot really compare it with Australia. However, I hope that more and more medical personnel will show their concerns as the number of foreigners giving birth in Japan is likely to increase.


To be more concrete, what sort of activities are you engaged in?

We made a multilingual pamphlet for foreign expectant mothers (see note 1) and hand it out. At the same time, we have been working to let them understand the current situation foreign expectant mothers are in and to have them stay in close contact with us.
We received many people’s cooperation during the production of this pamphlet.
In the future, we aim to educate more medical personnel about the current situation of cross-cultural medical care and provide friendly medical care to foreigners.

You can download this multilingual pamphlet from RASC’s website. If you know any foreign expectant mother, let her know about this!http://www.rasc.jp/
The editorial department of Senseup will be reporting Ms. Fujiwara’s activities in multicultural nursing regularly. Don’t miss them!

Profile of Ms. Yukari Fujiwara

A midwife as well as a nurse. She worked at a hospital in Shinjuku-ku where many foreigners visit. She then studied cross-cultural nursing at Sydney University, Australia and has experience in teaching. She is now a candidate for the Ph.D. at St. Luke’s College of Nursing.
She has also been participating in NPO and other supporting groups that provide comprehensive support to foreigners in Japan. She is pursuing how medical personnel should provide medical care to foreign women and their children in Japan.

Club of Children and Students(CCS)

EVENT
70,000 children of foreign nationalities currently enroll in Japanese School. Children of foreign nationalities cannot get proper educational guidance. We gathered information about CCS which has 6 learning centers as well as summer school inside Tokyo.
CCS operates with the following principles:

(1) Improving the education environment and achieving self-actualization at a global level for kids with foreign cultural backgrounds

(2)Creating a bright future for Japanese kids who accept kids with foreign cultural backgrounds

(3)Reaching a “multicultural society” where diversity is respected as well as creating a “world of peace” where every one can live safely

【CCS】

◆CCS is a NGO organization that supports “kids with foreign cultural backgrounds” such as kids of foreign nationalities, returnees from China, Japanese South American, and kids of mixed blood. We aim to support such groups of individuals who are considered a minority in the Japanese society. We hope that the kids can be proud of their origins and live the way they like with confidence. We also hope that he/she can not only achieve self-actualization but also becomes the role model for kids that share the same background nationwide. In addition, we hope that they can indoctrinate other Japanese children at school and make contributions to creating a multicultural society where diversity and individuality are respected. As a student NGO organization, we hope that students can also lean through volunteer activities, raise their awareness of global citizenship, and build partnerships with kids. At the same time, we also hope that CCS which provides support along with kids can contribute to the improvement of education in the world through stimulating Japanese children and approaching not only the schools but the Japanese society as a whole.

EVENT
The picture of Okubo through the eyes of those that were on a school trip

Okubo has been featured by NHK many times as the place for understanding multiculturalism. As a matter of fact, many students have visited Okubo on school trips in order to gain an understanding of foreign cultures and the coexistence of such. What’s at the top of their concerns?
◆131 students were divided into 28 teams (4~5 people per team) and they visited 51 companies, offices, stores, restaurants, NPO groups and so on that are run by Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Burmese, and Tunisian in the district (Each team visited 2 places). The experience brought the knowledge regarding internationalization that they learned when they were in first and second year all together.

The students arrived at Shokuan-dori on the bus at 11am. They headed towards Lutheran Church under the guidance of Mr. Yamamoto (the representative of Kyojyukon). In the bethel, Mr. Yamamoto handed out the pamphlets about Okubo as well as the maps of the places to be visited and conducted an orientation. There were also greetings from Mr. Hisok Kim, the president of Kanjinkai. After that, the students headed towards their destinations in the rain.

The students experienced through their five senses on the streets where Asian languages can be heard and signs written in Korean can be seen and through the interviews at their destinations. According to their reports, they were most surprised by the existence of a town like Okubo in Japan where people from various countries live in.
