    This is the first time KaKa saw a tea plantation.
    Here is the Chinese green tea production areas.
    In heavy fog, eat the tea buds, very fresh.
    I heard there is a kind of very expensive tea, but now that be already finished harvesting.
    The tea leaves I can eat now, is a cheap grade green tea.
    Expensive grade tea requires picking in very early spring, even in winter.

    Sumo is a competitive contact sport where a wrestler attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. The sport originated in Japan, the only country where it is practiced professionally.

    The Japanese consider sumo a gendai, though the sport has a history spanning many centuries. The sumo tradition is very ancient, and even today the sport includes many ritual elements, such as the use of salt for purification, from the days sumo was used in the Shinto religion.

    Life as a rikishi is highly regimented, with rules laid down by the Sumo Association. Professional sumo wrestlers are required to live in communal “sumo training stables” known in Japanese as heya where all aspects of their daily lives—from meals to their manner of dress—are dictated by strict tradition.

    KaKa is very fortunate to have the opportunity to try Japanese Sumo Hot Pot…Delicious!
    But after dinner,how about KaKa’s body size…

    KaKa like Japanese food very much.
    Japanese meals usually include many types of food in one meal, this is very healthy and delicious.
    Japanese food is more light than the Chinese food, not a lot of cooking oil inside.
    Pulled noodle, sahshimi, tempura, Japanese hot pot…KaKa like most of the Japanese food.
