Moba-ramen (らぁ麺三軒屋)

I apologize for being inactive for the past two months since I got so busy with work and also went back to the Philippines. Anyway, for my comeback, I’ll be telling you about the privilege I got last week – promoting Chiba Prefecture’s very own ramen called “Moba-ramen.” This was in collaboration with Chosei’s Regional…

Tojo-tei House

The Tojo-tei House was the first itinerary for Chiba-kun Ambassadors second Prefectural Tour. This house is located a Matsudo City and this is not your ordinary house. This is a very historical house, which is nationally designated as an intangible cultural property of Japan. Why? Because it housed Tokugawa Akitake! The last shogun of the…

Mobara’s Tanabata Matsuri

It’s been a while since I last made an entry here. This entry will be about one of Japan’s biggest festivals celebrated in the Kantou region. Yeah, as the title itself says, Mobara’s Tanabata Matsuri! Just to give you a brief explanation on what Tanabata is, it is actually a celebration related to the stars….

Lunch at Kouki

During our first Chiba Prefecture tour, we had our lunch at this restaurant in Asahi City having the name “幸㐂” and I honestly did not know how to pronounce the second kanji the first time I saw it. Like, it’s not in the jouyou set of kanji (reasons) LOL. Thanks to the concerned people for…

Shiina Orchid

椎名洋ラン園 (Shiina Youran-en) is the name of the facility where us ambassadors went to after the “Mi” workshop. Just looking at the facade of the shop slash facility will make you think that it is just a small-scale business. But upon entering, we were amazed by how huge the place was. It was written in…

Meron meron! “There’s a melon!” It was one of the hottest days of summer in Japan when we went to Asahi to harvest some melons. The melons  that can be harvested here are called “Iioka” melons, and they are considered one of the most delicious ones in Japan. We arrived at some kind of warehouse…

Mi and You

We had our first Chiba Prefecture Tour last Saturday and the first itinerary was a workshop for Mi. The first time I saw this tool was when I watched Ayase Haruka’s Hotaru no Hikari, I guess. This is a traditional tool used by farmers in Japan and is considered one of Japan’s important cultural assets/property….

On Becoming a Taishi

I have been living in Chiba for almost three years and been appointed by the governor as an ambassador for two consecutive years already. Never did I imagine I would be one… will totally be a lie if I said it. Yes, I wanted to be one  because it’s going to be cool, right? Nah,…

Ambassa-deux

I don’t even know how I came up with such a lousy title for this blog, but this will be about my second time being chosen as a Chiba-kun ambassador for Chiba Prefecture. So, first and foremost, thank you to the staff and planners of this program, especially to Mr. Kensuke Morita, the governor of…
