ステップアップ-STEP UP・イギリス人講師 Kim キム
Hi, my name is Kim. I'm from Lincoln in England. I studied Economics and Math at Manchester University and graduated in 2004. I moved to Japan for a new adventure. I love Sapporo because there is always something to do. In winter I can snowboard and in summer I can wakeboard, Sapporo has the perfect climate! When I'm not doing sports I like to study Japanese and Japanese cooking, However I don't seem to be getting any better at either of them! So if you have any tips, let me know.
Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week. One of the questions I get asked quite often in class is what exercise I recommend. As you all know, I love going to the gym, but I know that not everyone has my enthusiasm. I think if you suddenly have the motivation to exercise, a simple way to start is to begin with stretching. You don’t need to go to a gym to stretch, you can do it in your own room. The first time you enter a gym can be a little scary because each gym has different equipment but the staff in Japan are so friendly that I’m sure they would go out of their way to help you.
I also get asked if there are any differences between Japanese sport clubs and British ones. There are quite a lot of differences, but this also depends where you go. A good gym in the UK will have a wide range of free weight and less machines (while Japan is the other way). Also, the staff will ask you questions about your week which some people might think are personal. Basically though, the gyms are the same but important thing, Japanese sports clubs usually have a bath. This is the most awesome thing about working out in Japan, afterward you can sit in a hot bath!!! If you want any more advice, feel free to ask.
Yay! Cherry blossoms
Hello everyone. When I first came to Japan, everyone told me about the four seasons of Japan. I was told that the seasons clearly changed and this was celebrated by seasonal food and festivals. Now I can confidently say, I am obsessed with the changing of seasons. I am excited to see what flavor ice cream will be released and what wonderful flavored drinks will come. Around this time is of course, the cherry blossom period. There are so many cherry blossom flavored things. I am not sure how to describe the taste of cherry blossoms, other than it is quite unique. It isn’t just food and drinks, there are all types of cherry blossom goods. Last week at my gym, a woman was wearing cherry blossom print training tights!! I hope everyone enjoys this time of year even if it is only for a short time. Cherry blossoms really are a national treasure.
Happy St. Patrick`s Day!!!
Hello everyone! I hope you are all feeling jolly and happy. Today is St. Patrick`s day!!! Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. It is a national holiday in Ireland and people usually go to festivals and attend public parades. It is customary to wear shamrocks, green clothes, and green accessories. I know that I am not Irish but I do have Irish ancestry (as do many British people) so I always try and celebrate the day. If you saw me today, you might have noticed I was wearing a green sweater? I also decorated my white to celebrate the day. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys the day.
