Shikoku!

Last Saturday, my Japanese teacher took me to Kagawa to eat some udon. Everyone in Japan always talks about how udon is the best in Kagawa so I was very excited to try some! We first went to a small restaurant and had a little bowl of udon. VERY delicious! There was also a window where you could see the chef rolling and cutting the udon.

Next we went to a much bigger restaurant. By this time it was almost 12 o'clock so it was very crowded. People were waiting outside in the rain to enter the restaurant so I knew that it must be good food. We had a large family style bowl of udon that we all shared from. Of course, we also had some tempura. Mmm Mmm!

It was definitely the best udon I've ever had. But I still don't like slurping up the noodles. Too noisy!

Also on a different note, I'd like to acknowledge the fact that all 7 of my Oscar predictions were correct. Genius!

My Favorite Places

After spending the last year living and traveling in Japan, I've compiled a list of some of my favorite places in the country.

Kobe is probably my favorite city in Japan. I loved the port and walking around the city when I went last September. I spent the day in museums and taking loads of pictures. Chinatown was the best! Delicious food and very cool shops. There were also a bunch of interested live music cafes and bars that I'd like to go back to next time.

The best view I've seen in Japan is definitely from the top of Mt. Fuji. I climbed to the top last summer and it was extremely breathtaking (literally, because it was very exhausting!). It took all night to make it to the top and then me and my friends watched the sunrise. It was beautiful seeing the sun rise above the clouds, not to mention I got some amazing pictures. But I don't think I would climb it again! Once was enough!

My favorite small city/town would have to be my hometown in Japan, Kurashiki. The Bikan Area is the old part of the town and it has a beautiful canal running through it. I've been there in all 4 seasons and it's beautiful in each one. I haven't had the chance to ride in a boat down the river, but I'd like to do it when it gets warmer out!

I've also traveled to Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima. Next on the travel list: Himeji!

Critic's Corner Part 2

Alright, here are some more recent films that I thought would be worthy to mention.

Up-Has Pixar ever made a bad movie? The answer is no! And this film is no exception. An excellent animated film that is for both children and adults. It even has one of those serious, sad moments like the beginning of Nemo. Very heartwarming and a great family film.

Inglorious Basterds-I didn't think I would really like this movie but I ended up loving it. A Nazi war story about a rebellion against Hitler. Most of the movie is in subtitles, so if that's not your thing don't watch it, however it is an excellent film. There are a bunch of gory parts so be prepared! Brad Pitt stars although there are many other excellent actors in this movie.

District 9-A "what if aliens came to Earth and we had to coexist with them" film. VERY cool. The special effects are excellent and the story is also smart. It feels very real and it's a must see for any science fiction fan.

That concludes my movie reviews. Also, since the Oscars are tomorrow I'd like to make some winner predictions. Here they are:

Best Picture: The Hurt Locker
Best Animated Film: Up
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker)
Best Actress: Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side)
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart)
Best Supporting Actress: Mo'Nique (Precious)
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds)

I'll check back in on Monday to see how I did. Have a good weekend!
