"Din Tai Fung"
I went to the new store opened in January of this year!
It is about a 3-minute walk from MRT Dongmen Station, diagonally across the road from the main store.
It is a spacious 4-story store.
Not only the dumplings, but also the fried rice and wonton were delicious!
A video introducing the new store is being distributed on "Naruwanto TV"!

State of the local sea

The other day, I went diving to Coral Island.

I was worried about the weather on the weekend, but this day it was sunny from the morning!
The island was also crowded with many Thai tourist guests.

Coral Island, which is a little off the coast of the large Chalong Bay, was less affected by the waves and had a pleasant calm sea condition. Even in the sea, the condition is quite good from the shallow area where you can reach your feet.

It was a sea condition where you can enjoy diving and snorkeling!

Annyon Haseyo! It's Il ^^
October is over this week, and it's almost November! In Seoul, the temperature is below 10 ℃ in the morning, and I feel that winter is approaching.

☆ Korea Night Tour ☆
By the way, today I would like to introduce a night view spot that looks even more beautiful in the cold season when the air is clear.
The "Matsushima Maritime Cable Car" in Busan, South Korea's second largest city, is a ropeway on the sea that is rare in Japan. You can swim in the sea from a height of up to 86 meters over a total length of 1.62 km, and you can occupy the beautiful night view of Busan!
Especially at night, the beauty of the night view + the thrill of the sea at night is also added! Some floors are skeletons, so please try it!

What is the difference between Taiwan and Japan and masks?

Now that the new coronavirus continues, masks have become one of the indispensable items in our daily lives.
Even now, there are still many shops that you can't enter without wearing a mask.

When it comes to masks, I think every country is about the same,
It seems that there are many white masks in Japan.

And the picture is a mask sold at a pharmacy near us.
I'm dealing with colorful masks.
There are red, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, black, purple, and even leopard print masks.

Meanwhile, it seems that the "red mask", which is very popular with women now, will be sold out soon after its release ♪
As I walk around the city, I see people wearing various masks here and there.

When you come to Taiwan next time, how about giving a "cute colored mask" to your Japanese friends !!
I'm sure you will be pleased.

We hope that the new coronavirus will converge as soon as possible.

If you've been to Kaohsiung recently, you've probably seen this strangely shaped building. Do you know what kind of building this is?
This is actually a multi-purpose hall called [Kaohsiung Music Center]. It took five years to build as part of the Kaohsiung Port reuse plan, and is scheduled to finally open in April next year. There will also be a live test run next month.
The building asked the Spanish architectural team to design with the elements of the sea.
The beehive-like building was designed with a wave motif, and the hexagonal building across the river was designed with a coral reef motif.
Both are beautifully lit up at night, and are becoming more popular as night view spots.
Kaohsiung Music Center will literally be held mainly for music-related events, live performances, and concerts.
With the opening of next year, Kaohsiung's port area will be even more lively.

Please come visit us next time you visit Kaohsiung!

Autumn has arrived! Refreshing autumn is the best season in Shanghai. Speaking of the tradition of this period, it is truly the Shanghai crab. So, I tasted it at the ramen shop of Shanghai Crab Miso, which has become a hot topic, with everyone in the company. I ordered three types of crab miso ramen, kake noodles, and rice bowl, but I was happy that the taste of crab miso was rich in both. We will introduce the details with a video.

"Narumi Cultural Garden"

Narumi Cultural Park in Changhua is a beautiful garden with history and culture, and is also a tourist spot.
The way to enter the park is to buy a bonsai of at least 200 yuan.
There are two areas in the park, "Narumi Kodo" and "Waen".
Narumi Kodo was built in 1885 and officially opened as a tourist destination in 2012.
The Japanese garden was created in 2014, and trees such as pine trees that mean longevity are planted inside. The Japanese style scenery is like being in Japan.

Pro democracy protests in Bangkok

Since last week Bangkok has been occupied by tens of thousands pro democracy protestors who held flash rallies and protests at several locations throughout Bangkok. A three finger salute has become a symbol led by the student movement.

The protestors have been calling for significant changes which are rewriting of the military- drafted constitution, new elections and reform of the monarchy.

Several protest leaders and activist have been arrested on various charges, including sedition, since the protest started.

State of the local sea

The other day, I went diving toward Rachanoi Island.
Recently, the weather in Phuket has collapsed on weekends, but unfortunately it has been cloudy since the morning. However, let's leave it as Yoshi even if it didn't rain.

By the way, in the sea, although the open ocean makes a little wave, there is no problem if it enters the big island shadow.
There were many Thai guests from Bangkok on that day, and the boat was a little crowded.

In the sea, it's not as refreshing as Rachanoi Blue, but the average is usually higher on the east side, so it's as usual.

And diving in Rachanoi Bay after a long absence.
For me, I visited the white sand point, which I think is the most beautiful of all the dive sites in Phuket, for the first time in a while. The water depth is shallow, but if the sun shines well here! something like that. It was a little difficult to stay slowly because the timing was like a strange reversal flow.

This is a healing point that you want to relax while underwater.

Although it is still a little limited, diving boats also depart every day.
