Japanese A Practical Beginners Guide to Learn Japanese in Just 14 Days! Japanese is an East Asian Language, spoken primarily in Japan by an estimate of 125-6 million people. Although now Japanese is exclusively spoken in Japan, it was the 'Language of the Empire,' before World War two as the countries annexed by Japan such as Taiwan and Korea and some other Pacific Islands, which may result to some older generations in these countries still being able to speak this language. Japanese is also very popular with anime fans, who are spread all over the world. Anime is Japanese hand drawn or computer drawn animation. Although Japanese has no official status it is indeed a national language. This book will give you a sneak peak of the Japanese culture and society, and how the culture and society effectively help shape how the Japanese grammar shapes itself into what it is today. This book is also a big help to those people.

Now, anyone can go from sushi novice to sushi samurai--slicing, filleting, and making rolls like a master! Never before have the techniques of this most popular Asian cuisine been as attractively presented, as easy to follow, and as temptingly photographed as this beginner's guide. With the help of an unbelievable number of close-up photos, expert Aya Imatani virtually takes would-be chefs by the hand, leading them through every delectable step of the process. She discusses all the tools, foods, and paraphernalia; lays out the methods for making vinegars and sauces; and demonstrates how to make sashimi creations so special they aren't even found in many sushi bars. The menu of sushi recipes is expansive, encompassing hosomaki, saimaki, and all-vegetarian varieties. You will even learn all the right Japanese names for each dish. And everything seems wonderfully doable. The big finish: Aya's specials, the kind of dishes you'll never find in sushi bars--such as Sushi Cake (Chicken &Teriyaki) and Temarizushi (made of tuna, salmon, and avocado)--but that a Japanese mother or grandmother would make for her own family.

Embroidery on this beautiful fabric has been worked in many countries, but Julia finds the perfection aspired to in traditional Japanese embroidery a wonderful challenge. She learned in Japan by copying the work of a master, and found not only a way to stitch, but also a philosophy that allowed her to achieve balance and harmony in her everyday life. In this inspirational guide she shares her passion and in depth knowledge of the history and practice of this eastern art form. It covers everything from handling flat silk and twisting your own threads to working the different stitches and finishing off an embroidery. Japanese design is influenced by the four seasons, but traditional designs also use the colors and symbols associated with festivals—trees, dolls, fish, birds, and mythical figures. A series of simple step-by-step projects, which include the story behind each motif, help the reader to develop their techniques and learn about the symbolism of a great tradition.

The 19 traditional subjects taught in this book include: Flowers like orchids, chrysanthemums, camellias, roses and peonies Plants and fruits including bamboo, eggplants, grapes and chestnuts Animal figures including small birds, butterflies, chicks, crabs and goldfish Koike also explains the philosophy of Sumi-e, which emerges from the use of negative white space to enhance the painted forms. Readers will enter into a world not just of black and white, but of infinite shades of gray which are capable of evoking all the sensations of color using these techniques.

The Akita is a large breed of working dog that originates from the mountainous regions of Japan. The breed was originally developed to hunt large prey, such as bears, wild boar and deer. The breed is split into two variant strains: the Japanese strain and the American strain. The Japanese strain is commonly known as 'Akita Inu' ('Inu' meaning 'dog' in Japanese) and the 'Great Japanese dog.' The Japanese strain has a narrow range of coat colorations which are red, fawn, sesame, brindle and pure white. The American strain of Akita comes in a much wider range of colorations - it can basically have any color that is normally found on dogs. The Akita will commonly have a short double coat, in a similar fashion to the Siberian Husky. However it is not uncommon for a Akita to have a long coat due to a recessive gene. The Akita is an independent, powerful and domineering breed. They are commonly aloof with strangers but highly affectionate towards their family unit. As a breed they are generally very hardy and energetic. Before purchasing any pet it is important to understand that as a pet owner you are responsible for the care and wellbeing of your pet.
