JAPAN -Houses -Food -Clothes
Houses in Japan Traditional house : A traditional Japanese house does not have a designated use for each room aside from the entrance area, kitchen, bathroom, and toilet. Any room can be a living room, dining room, study, or bedroom. This is possible because all the necessary furniture is portable, being stored in oshiire, a small section of the house used for storage. It is important to note that in Japan, living room is expressed as ima, living "space". This is because the size of a room can be changed by altering the partitioning. Large traditional houses often have only one ima under the roof, while kitchen, bathroom, and toilet are attached on the side of the house as extensions.
Modern house : The modern houses in Japan are always very strange and usually expensive. The toilet in Japanese housing is usually located away from the bathroom. The modern Japanese kitchen features appliances such as a stove, a narrow fish grill (broiler), and an electric refrigerator.
Japanese cuisine!! Japanese cuisine is the food of Japan. The traditional food of Japan is based on rice with miso soup and other dishes, each in its own utensil, with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients. The side dishes often consist of fish, pickled vegetables, and vegetables cooked in broth. Fish is common in the traditional cuisine. It is often grilled, but it may also be served raw as sashimi or in sushi. Seafood and vegetables are also deep-fried in a light batter as tempura. Apart from rice, staples include noodles, such as soba and udon. Japan has many simmered dishes such as fish products in broth called oden, or beef in sukiyaki and nikujaga. Foreign food, in particular Chinese food in the form of noodles in soup called ramen and fried dumplings, gyoza, and western food such as curry and hamburger steaks are commonly found in Japan. Historically, the Japanese shunned meat, but with the modernization of Japan in the 1860s, meat-based dishes such as tonkatsu became common.
Characteristic clothes in Japan!! Japanese clothing consisted entirely of a great variety of kimono. They first appeared in the Jomon period, with no distinction between male and female. After Japan opened up for trading with the outside world, other options started to come in. The kimono was originally for the men and the elderly of the household but a group of women that called themselves Wan Ko Bee rose up against the system and started wearing them. Figuring they were much more practical, all women started wearing them, turning a new leaf for the Japanese. Officers and men of some units of the shogunal army and navy were among the first to adopt western clothing, fashioned after the styles worn by English marines stationed at Yokohama. The style only grew from there, moving out from the military to other lifestyles.
