- Treasure Every Meeting (一期一会, ichigo-ichie) This means when you meet a person there is no guarantee you will meet again. If you think that, then you will cherish that moment. In life, there is only one chance, and there is no sure proof that you will have another. Everyday, everything you come across may be a once in a lifetime experience. One must live each day to the fullest extent. I encountered a nice hanging scroll. The term is derived from Zen Buddhism and concepts of transience, and it is particularly associated with the Japanese tea ceremony.

Genuine ignorance is more profitable because it is likely to be accompanied by humility, curiosity, and open-mindedness; effective ability to repeat catch-phrases, cant terms, familiar propositions, gives the conceit of learning and coats the mind with a varnish waterproof to new ideas. -John Dewey (Chapter 13: Language and the Training of Thought in How we think.) Failure is instructive... I believe that one of the most important ability to be a lifelong learner is to be able to express their opinions clearly and to be able to listen to others opinions properly. I am still on the way.

What is Coffee Jelly? Coffee Jelly is might be one of the more popular desserts in Japan. It's now mostly prepared in Japan, but its origins seem to be in the early 19th century in England. In Japan, an agar-based gelatin called kanten is often used. It has a jello-like texture and tastes like coffee; it is simple and refreshing. A perfect dessert for a warm summer’s day and also it can be easily made at home.

Not many have heard of an amazing creation - The Miho Museum Considering the natural landscape the approach to the museum was designed by architect I.M. Pei, who is renowned for works such as the glass pyramid at the Louvre in Paris.😊 According to the museum, 120,000 tourists visit the Miho Museum each year, and surprisingly more than 10% of them are from foreign countries. Yet even some people from Shiga prefecture do not know about the museum.
