TAIWAN-10/2-4- GOOD BY TAIWAN

(2011-10-22)
Happy time spent rapidly.
It was time to go home.
We took a bus, headed to the airport, bought some souvenirs, and got on the airplane.

The last part of the trip was very busy.
Tsuru-chan’s uncle passed away during the trip, so she was in a hurry.
Even if she was in a hurry, she couldn’t run in the airplane.

By the way, I really like Taiwan doll play.
It was import to Japan once, but Japanese people didn’t like it.

Afterwards, when I visit Taiwan, I look for its DVDs.

This time, I found the DVDs at the airport.
Unfortunately, I have already bought too many souvenirs, so I couldn’t buy the DVDs.
I always looked for in the DVD shop.
And this time, I could understand why I couldn’t find the DVDs.
Its DVDs were sold in a toy shop.
Next time, I definitely go to a toy shop and buy the DVDs.

We arrived at Nagoya Airport.
I had to go back to Osaka, so I got on the Shinkansen.
I arrived at my apartment at 10p.m.

I was really tired.

But I really love Taiwan.

TAIWAN-10/2-3- TEA HOUSE

(2011-10-21)
R0012988.jpg

Finally, we went to the tea house.

You can see it on a guide book, so many Japanese visited there.

I ordered Houshu-Cha(包種茶) –I don’t know in English-.
R0012981.jpg

What is your image of Chinese tea?
Isn’t it like Suntory oolong tea?
It is completely different.
Oolong or Chinese tea is not like that.
It is really good smell but it is not like herb tea.

There are thousands kinds of Chinese tea, but roughly there are 6 types.

By the way, don’t you think Chinese tea is expensive?

I thought it was too expensive.

To make Chinese tea, there are many process flows.
It needs much time, many people, and lots of efforts and loves.
If you learn about Chinese tea, you will agree why Chinese tea is such expensive.

Houshu-cha is very close to Japanese tea.
The color is yellow green.
It is a little sweet and you can feel ‘green flavor’ and sun shine.


Their tea was good but there sweets were marvelous.

This is a pie
After we ordered they started to make this pie.
So, we had to wait for much time but it was worth to waiting.
Tsuru-chan said it was the best food during this trip.
I agree her.
It was not too sweet and the pie was crispy and hot.

TAIWAN-10/2-2-Sheraton Hotel

(2011-10-20)
Our plan was to drink Chinese tea.

But it was too early, so we looked around an underground mall of Taipei.
We bought lots of souvenirs, dried fruits, cosmetics, etc.
They were inexpensive because the shops were not for tourists.
I could buy enough souvenirs there.

We got on MRT(subway) and got off at the next stop.

We could find a tea shop soon, but it hasn’t opened yet.

There was the Sheraton Hotel close to the tea shop, so we went there.


It was a wrong choice…

There was a shopping mall on the basement.
We went down to the basement.

So, there was a pottery shop just in front of us.
We got sucked into the pottery shop…

At the shop, we could see many beautiful potteries.

I thought they were expensive and I couldn’t buy them, but they were more reasonable than I thought.

I found a cup which I had seen at Ingu.
When I visited Ingu, I really wanted to buy it, but I didn’t buy….

And I met it again. I thought it was a kind of fate.

Other potteries were really beautiful, too.

And Tsuru-chan and I really liked a clerk.
She was a middle-aged lady.
She was not strong.
She had a lot of knowledge of potteries.
She explained a lot about their products.
And I could feel she really loved potteries.

Tsuru-chan and I bought a couple of potteries.

We said-
We bought the potteries. But if a clerk wasn’t her, we wouldn’t buy the potteries.

TAIWAN-10/2-1-DR.SUN'S HOUSE

(2011-10-19)
10/2
R0012975.jpg

We ate breakfast at the hotel.
I wanted to eat a lot but I couldn’t because I ate too much at Meizu…

We didn’t have any plans.
We checked out the hotel anyway.

We visited The Dr. Sun Yat-sen House.

Who is Dr. Sun?
He in born in China and got an American nationality.
He found an asylum in Japan several times.
He is called ‘Father’ in China.
But the relationship between Taiwan and Dr. Sun is really serious.
If you interested in Dr. Sun please read following website.

http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:Sun_Yat-sen?uselang=ja

This house was used to be a hotel and when Dr. Sun visited Taiwan, he stayed at this hotel.
It is a Japanese style house, so there are some tatami-mats or sliding door made with wood and paper(fusuma).
You can see some documents and photos from Dr.Sun’s life.
Even if you cannot read Chinese, you can expect what they are.

It wasn’t so big but there was a beautiful garden there.
There was a pond in the garden.
At a fine day, it is really good for you to have a picnic there.

Two Korean girls visited the house, but the house was really silent.
I couldn’t feel I was in a center of Taipei.

TAIWAN-10/1- 梅子MEIZU-

(2011-10-18)
Afterwards, we went to eat dinner.
Tsuru-chan wanted to go to delicious one.

R0012967.jpg

She decided a restaurant where she wanted to go to.
We asked about that restaurant at the hotel, so a concierge said that was a really good Taiwan food restaurant.
The restaurant was close to the shampoo shop.

The building of the restaurant was old.
I thought it had a long history.
We doubted if an elevator worked well.
The restaurant floor was located on the second floor.
At the entrance of the floor, we could see many fresh fishes in some aquariums.
Of course, they were still alive!!
The restaurant cooked some food with those fresh fishes.

These are dinner which we ate.

This crab’s one was the most famous one.
Many customers ordered the same one because they could see it on a guidebook.
There was sticky rice under the crab.
It was a little sweet, but I could feel seafood soup taste.
It was really really good.

This was a sharks' fin soup.
I don’t usually like sharks’ fin because it is plane.
So, the most important thing of sharks’ fin soup is a flavor of soup.

This soup was really good.
I always think sharks’ fin soup needs a little rich taste.
It was the best sharks’ fin soup I had eaten before.
The rich taste of soup helped the plane flavor fin soup.
R0012968.jpg

By the way, we drank two kinds of beers.
One was ‘draft beer’ and the other was normal(?) beer.
We thought ‘draft beer’ was always poured in a jug, but it was a bottle of beer.
I prefer the normal beer in Taiwan.

We ate too much again.
I wanted to need a big stomach.

We couldn’t move.
We had to reduce the food in our stomachs, so we got back to the hotel on foot.
On the streets, we could see night scenes of Taiwan.

I felt sad because I had to get back to Japan next day.


TAIWAN -10/1-5- SHAMPOO

(2011-10-16)
I want to talk about ‘the free bus’.

It runs around the Ingu town and stops at some sightseeing spots.
There are two persons on the bus.
One is a driver, of course.
And the other is a lady who helps customers.

She asked us where we would go to, and told us when we arrived at the station where we got off.
She was really polite.
I don’t know why Taiwanese are always polite.
It is one of the reasons why I love Taiwan.


After we got back to the hotel, we decided going to wash our hairs.

Can you understand what I mean?

Taiwan shampoo is very famous.
You can see it on a guide book.

Tsuru-chan’s friends strongly recommended going to Taiwan shampoo.
We asked a concierge of the hotel, and she recommended a shampoo shop.

This hotel had a good service for customers.
They drove us to the shampoo shop for free.

The shampoo shop wasn’t a shampoo shop.
Their specialty was a massage, so they didn’t have enough staff of shampoo.
Tsuru-chan and I washed hair in turn.

It was a kind of massage.
It was very comfortable.
However, I couldn’t understand why this shampoo was so famous.
I didn't wash my hair on that day, anyway.

TAIWAN-10/1-4 -POTTERY SHOPS

(2011-10-15)

R0012957.jpg


Finally, we started to look around pottery shops.

We looked at each pottery shop along the street.

It was a paradise.

The first shop which we visited had a good selection of products.

A few products were very expensive, but almost all of them were reasonable.
I could see many beautiful cups, teapots, and dolls.
I wanted to buy soon, but it was the first shop, so I just looked around the shop.

Afterwards, we visited other shops.
Some of them were suspicious.

Each shop had each own color.
Even if they sold the same one, it seemed something different.
It was really interesting.

We looked at many potteries.

After we looked around enough, we started to buy some potteries.

Tsuru-chan bought a doll and teacup at the first shop.
I wanted to buy a beautiful Chinese tea cup of the lacquering.
I was dark red and very chic.
However, I thought I wouldn’t use it so long time because I would get tired of looking at it, so I didn’t buy it.

I bought a rabbit doll at another shop.
I have seen that doll in Japan and I wanted to buy it.
But it was a little expensive in Japan, so I haven’t bought it.
Luckily, it was cheaper than Japanese one, so I decided to buy it.
It was very cute and cool.

I bought a teacup at another shop.

I could see a carving of dragons.
It seemed really powerful.
I like dragon design, so I bought it.

We were really satisfied.
We got on the free bus again, got on the train, and got back to the hotel.
