It is always in my smile. It is always in my heart.
It is always one of my sweet memories in life!!!
Wherever I go, whatever I do, I always proud of that time!! 😀 😀
My first time visiting a nice semi-suburb town in Japan made me felt absolutely surprise, fun, joy, and fantastic! Firstly, after packing some necessity as commodities in my nice luggage bag, I dressed up a pullover in a quite fashion, but simple-look as Cambodian guy living abroad for the first time in life, then walking to my appointed place at Educational Center for International Students (), where my host family came to get me for the starting of my Home-stay program. Meanwhile, at ECIS therein, many other foreign students also went there waiting for their host families. Nicely, I noticed a Taiwanese friend of mine also approaching, which then we had a brief, but nice chat with her and her friends in Japanese (of course, I started warming up my Japanese, hahahh). Soon after a few minutes my host family phoned me telling that she arriving just wait for a moment (Actually, I did not mind to wait for I was having a nice chat with my nice friends. hah…). Suddenly, my host family arrived with their two children. Wow.. they look so pretty and nice. We took a photograph in front of my awesome and prestigious university (Graduate School of International Development), then traveled through a flash new and quite expensive car to their home. Of course, when we were about to arrive their home, we stop at the HIPPO family office for welcome party (Barbecue) and had a chat to other home stay visitors with a delicious dinner there (one of the nicest food I ate was Yuki Sobak)
This a view taken at the welcome party for the new visitor of home stay program at the Main office of the Hippo Family members.
The pretty woman is Japanese, and the therenext teenage boy is from Russian, Yuki, me, and Yuki’s father. 😀
After a long brief drive about 40 minutes we managed to arrive the HIPPO family office, where other international students also came to have a home visit. There, the BBQ party was held and beside drinking, I could chat and talk with other international students as well as Japanese students. I also taught them Khmer language (simple greeting), and show them some Khmer culture and tourist sites.
My hard time with my rough Japanese. 😀
With the two Japanese school girls, of grade 10, I could practice Japanese with some English! 😀
Secondly, as soon as we arrived home, it was around 8 pm, Yuki and Noriaki showed me my nice decorated bedroom then, we just spent a nice time chatting with each other about Cambodian culture and background (of course, I had to speak Japanese, but fortunately, the father could speak some English so that I can include some English phrase when I get stuck with the Japanese word). Instantly, to begin the talk, I gave them some presents I got from Cambodia, and they opened it with nice surprise saying great to see it. Hahahh, I showed them some postcards about Cambodia too, esp., the glamorous shot of Siem Reap touring sites, mainly the Angkor wat compound, Angkor Thom, Prasat Bakheng, et cetera. And, besides showing the lovely views from the postcard, I gave them a VCD of Cambodian touring show too, which then we played it and watched together Lolzz… After the nice welcome, it was time to sleep. Saying good night to everyone, I found myself comfortably slept in a nice futon blanket and cool quiet room. Hahahh this made me forgot to dream of anything in that cool Haru night. Lolzz… I have to say thank you so much for them, especially, their warmly welcome (いらっしゃいませ) to me. Thank you so much Otosan, Oka san, and especially, Yuki chan and Nriaki. 😀Thirdly, the second day, I got up seeing a lovely view of sunrise from the mountain ranges, and of course, those mountain ranges are not far away from where I was standing taking smooth breath, absorbing fresh countryside air and smiling. Soon, I heard a noise from the door of my room. Hahh, it was Yuki and Noriaki, asking me to take a stroll viewing the nearby scenary of Tam boo (rice field), bam boo (shoots) plantation, tea field, and mountain ranges… With the photo shot by Oto san, we made many lovely shot with memorial smiles of friendship. I did practice my Japanese a lot, and of course, many times I learn the new words from them. Hahh lolzz… Then, we came back having a nice breakfast with the five of us. Of course, I can say Oka san was the great cook of all, since I ate her food at Hippo family. :D))
Here is another fruit plantation. of course it is the TAKHI before getting fully grown up. It needs to be farefull grown and after it grown up people can get its fruit many years by. Thank you Yuki and Noriaki for joing to take a nice and love ly photo with me! 😀
I also took a nice shot in the middle of the TAKHI plantation for souvernir with Yuki. Plus, there is a nice view of mountain behind the plantation too. Of course, I was still carrying Yuki’s bag for she was busy carrying her lovely puppy. 😀
Wow… look at this! This is another lovely shot in the big plantation of Oto san`s friend (Yuki’s father’s friend). These are the famous fruit-eating tree in Japan too, called Takhe. Its season is coming as soon in October this year. I have to eat them a lot too because It is rare to have such a nice chance eating fruit here. hahahaha
Look at this and guess what is it?..
I always love green nature so it is my favourite place to take photo. This is a tea field, called OCHAK field. The field is carefully looked after by its owner because the tea is to be sold with a very expensive price. There are several kinds of tea here, and the most expensive one is called MATCHAK, which is served only for occasions or for the rich family in Japan. The roof is to protect the heat from too much sunlight.
It was a lovely shiny day of HARU season, which is called Spring. It was quite cool and with lovely fresh countryside air and sunshine, I could take off my sweater. Hence, as you can see, Yuki likes her dog very much. So, I have to carry her bag for her when taking the photo.
On the top of the mountain, there still have a large woods of Bamboo.
Yuki, the daughter of my host family likes her dogs so much that she carry her dog up to the mountain because caring that it might take a run around. Of course, I sometimes helped to carry the dog for her too. That is why in the photo I was carrying her bag, not mine. 😀 Noriaki, the son of my host family is showing one of his favourite toy sword.

Another thing made me so surprise and amusing is that we have plenty of Bamboos here.. Wow… it makes me feel like I am in Cambodia when I walk into this Bamboo yard. Of course, there are so many bamboo shoot too. I wanted to bring them home some for making Cambodian soup with pig-leg/lamp hahaa (Kor Tompeang Sach Chrouk). Lolz…., but it was so bad to bring, right? 😀 Thank you once again Yuki chan and Noriaki for sharing the nice photographs with me as great souvenir! Your smiles give me confidence in you that you are so brilliant and friendly and surely will become great students in the soon future. Mo Gambaro…!
Nice views at the entrance to the Angkor Wat temple museum in Kira Chou, Nagoya, Japan.
Don’t you believe that we have Angkor Wat in Japan? Let’s read this… hehehe.. Actually, this is not aiming to show a young guy with handsome body and lovely smile, but just to target those statues at the back, specifically, the two lions, and the Brahma faces. Hahahh… This is the entrance of a national park and museum in the mountain side in Kota-chou, one lovely town in Aichi Prefecture in Japan. Those statues are made of cement and modeled to those that exist in Siem Reap, Cambodia, which one on the right-hand side is male lion and another on the left-hand side is female. At first, I was so surprise and unbelievable to see these statues here. This made me start to feel that Japan has a long connection in history with Cambodia, in terms of sharing architecture style and of course, religion. Then walking into the museum park, I start to see more statues built very close model to those in Cambodia. Of course, I can’t wait to take some photograph, since it is one of my interests. Lolzz… Since the park is quite large, I walk in from the entrance with my Japanese host family, and of course, I had to feed my eyes with many nice views along the way and exercised myself under the cool, but not hot sunny day too.. Ha… Finally, we managed to relax in an awesome half-European-Japanese style restaurant to enjoy tasting several Japanese foods and ice-creams. Ohh…hahah…To say the truth, even I find myself as big eater sometimes, I had to tell them please stop order more because I am full will the big dishes of Yuki Soba, Spaghetti, some other food that I could not think up the name, Ochak (tea), and big creamy ice-cream. hahahah…(おいしく手、楽しくて、意朴手、とても憂いしいです)
Next, after chatting for a while for relaxing, it was the time for footing the bill. Hey.. actually, I did not have any right to pay at all, even my own dish that I wanted to pay, because they told me that they paid it already. Lolzz…. After that we went into the museum, and I was so surprise and humorous to see many painting on the walls are about Cambodian heroes, such as Jay Varamann VII ordering workers to build temples, and photos of the Cambodian former kings, and of course Cambodian temples. Moreover, I saw many statues in the glass box and, most amazing at all was the whole temple compound of Angkor Wat temple (Angkor Toch), which looks the same like the current temple in Cambodia. The last thing, made me excited and laughed in mind, is there was a non-stop video play on Cambodian temples touring. Hahaha… of course, this museum is called the Angkor wat temple museum. After that, I started to understand why Many Japanese people know that Angkor Wat temple (beside from the website) is in Cambodia, and that is why whenever I went to Siem Reap I saw many Japanese tourists visiting there.
This is quite long description, for sure, but detail too, right? May be some parts are not so nice coz I am not a professional writer yet. Lolz.. Thus, you can answer the above question, of course! Hahahha…
