Suginoko ODEN AND LOCAL CUISINE IN JR HAKATA CITY

W

hen the cold winter winds descend upon the archipelago, the Japanese seek warmth in a seasonal standby: oden. For some, the boiled fare may evoke an image of a snack to accompany an old man’s cup of hot sake, but that's no longer

the case. One trip to Suginoko is proof that oden is evolving. Suginoko uses flying fish for its broth, which makes for a lightly-flavored oden that you just can't get enough of. In addition to typical ingredients, such as daikon, konyaku and chikuwa, you can also try some more creative oden. The tomato oden, which uses a specially-seasoned broth, comes topped with olive oil and parsley for a delightful fusion of east and west. Don't forget to try the gyorokke, a fried fish croquette topped with oden broth, and the teppanyaki oden—oden roasted on a hot iron griddle and topped with sweet miso. With its prime location directly above JR Hakata Station, Suginoko attracts many tourists, and it caters to them with a wide range of local Kyushu dishes. It also offers sets of oden or sashimi with draft beer for ¥1,000—perfect for the business traveler heading home.

SPECIAL SCREENI “HAFU” the film

W

Sund ay Dec. 1 , 5

half-Japanese–as they explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that once proudly proclaimed itself as the mono-ethnic nation. For some of these hafus Japan is the only home they know, for some living in Japan is an entirely new experience, and others are caught somewhere between two different worlds. Narrated by the hafus themselves, along with candid interviews and cinéma vérité footage, the viewer is guided through a myriad of hafu experiences that are influenced by upbringing, family relationships, education, and even physical appearance. As the film interweaves five unique life stories, audiences discover the depth and diversity of hafu personal identities. What does it mean to be hafu?; What does it mean to be Japanese?; and ultimately, What does all of this mean for Japan?

ith an ever increasing movement of people between places in this transnational age, there is a growing number of mixed-race people in Japan, some visible others not. According to the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, one in forty-nine babies born in Japan today are born into families with one non-Japanese parent. This newly emerging minority in Japan is under-documented and under-explored in both literature and media. The feature-length HD documentary film, “Hafu – the mixed-race experience in Japan” seeks to open this increasingly important dialogue. The film explores race, diversity, multiculturalism, nationality, and identity within the mixed-race community of Japan. The film follows the lives of five “hafus”–the Japanese term for people who are

T

his month we checked in with Chonnakarn Akrapreedee, who landed her first job with Thai Airways International in 2000, following a short stopover at Star Alliance in Frankfurt. She is now General Manager, South Japan of Thai Airways in Fukuoka where she is in charge of making sure ticket sales take off for their daily flights to and from Bangkok. Recent Japanese visa relaxations have meant an average 30~35% rise in the number of inbound travellers, but her main objective is to promote business trips and holidays to Thailand: she recommends the Chiang Mai mountains, which are ‘like Kyushu, but with elephants you can ride’. Read the full interview online for her thoughts on how airlines can tackle the problems of typhoons and climate change, and the challenges of being the only foreign female general manager in Fukuoka: is Thailand ‘more open in terms of working space for women’? For details of the TG Super Deal, Thai Airways’ current special offer, go to thaiair.co.jp.

iterally translated, Bonenkai means “forget the last year” party, but anyone who has attended one of these end-of-year bashes knows it’s not as simple as that! If you do it right, you’ll walk away with a full stomach and new connections within your company. But if you’re not careful you may wake up the next morning with hangover and a head full of ache and regret!

BONENKAI GUIDE 2013

A company bonenkai usually begins with a greeting by the boss in which he or she thanks staff for their work and speaks positively about the coming year. Then the drinking and eating starts and colleagues pour for each other endlessly. The crowd gets a little rowdy and speeches, karaoke, or skits begin - ranging from embarrassing to very clever. Impersonations of the boss or others usually draw laughs and are fortunately quickly forgotten. Nobody knows why, but more than one guy ends up wearing his necktie around his head.

BONENKAI POWER TIPS Network

There are great opportunities for nomi-nication – drinking (nomi) and communicating. Problem is, many brilliant ideas are forgotten the next day. So bring lots of name cards.

Pour for others

If you want to be considered bonenkai jouzu - never let the glasses of the people sitting near you dip to less than 70% full. If you do, you are slow, rude, and a party-pooper.

Job Security

Often, Japanese bosses proclaim “breko” - the chance for a “break” from office hierarchy, or a license to address your boss honestly and frankly for one night. Don’t fall into the trap! Many a novice has gone too far with their joking and ended up jobless.

Shop around

On the other hand, restaurants and bars fight fiercely for bonenkai bookings, so shop around a bit to find great deals with all-you-can drink options and more. Popular places get booked early, so don’t delay.

Genki Drinks

It’s going to be a long night. Hangover probability is high. Consider using protection. Before you drink alcohol, down a bottle of “Ukon Drink”. There are many varieties. Drinking these even after the fact is reported to be After the bonekai there’s normally a nijikai of help. and sometimes a sanjikai.

Return home Save up

Depending on how popular you are, you may be invited to multiple bonenkai - with friends, clubs, PTA and even neighborhood groups. If your company isn’t footing the bill, bonenkai season can be expensive!

Used items are put on display and given to people who want them.
