This was already the fourth edition of the Japan Matsuri hosted at the Espocentro in Bellinzona. This was our first time visiting, but it most definitely won't be our last. A multiplicity of Japan related activities as well as a pleasant crowd, without the usual overcrowding which can occur at other events of this sort, make it a unique event in Switzerland. If you're still debating if you should travel to Ticino for next year's festival ? We'd have some great arguments why you definitely...

Intro Zurich has just been made more interesting with yet another culinary pop up event - but not just any pop up event. At the "Sushi & Sake - the taste of Japan" exquisite cuisine is paired with an exclusive atmosphere and friendly service in the Widder Hotel's pop up garden, charmingly decorated by Jelmoli. For those who want to treat themselves to something special should absolutely make a detour at Rennweg 7 until the 19th of March - as the ephemeral location will then have its last...

With the winter months in full swing, we decided to treat ourselves to some delicious and hearty Japanese hot pots, or better known as “Nabe” (Japanese for pot). One of the more bulky hot pots is Chankonabe and is traditionally eaten by sumo wrestlers. There is no set recipe for Chankonabe, however there is a rule of thumb: it has to contain a large amount protein. Common ingredients are chicken, meat, sea food, tofu, and a lot of veggies. All the ingredients are cooked in a stew in one big...

In Japan, Valentine’s Day has become quite a big thing. However, the imported tradition has taken on a distinct Japanese flavour. In Japan, on Valentine’s Day, it is women who give presents to men, usually chocolates. There are two types of chocolates: the “Giri-choco” (obligation chocolate), given to men with whom one has no romantic relation to, such as male friends, co-workers and even bosses. As a gesture of friendship or gratitude. And then there’s “Honmei-choco”; given to...

Among the numerous events which took place during the week, we attended one evening event and two during the day. We will shortly present here...
