文化與歷史 CULTURE & HISTORY

日本文化根深蒂固,源於很多習俗和文化都是自

祖先輩傳承下來。每年的夏日祭更是全國普天同慶 的一大節日。而祭典多是以神社寺院為主要的舉辦 場地,除了為祈求五穀豐收、商售繁盛、疫病退散 等,另一方面也是為了答謝所獲得的成就。 自江戶時代起,夏日祭包括:煙火大會、廟會等一 系列活動已經成為夏天重要的活動之一。又以京都 衹園祭、大阪天神祭和東京神田祭最享負盛名,故 素有「春賞櫻花,夏看煙火」的稱號。人們都愛穿上 漂亮的和服浴衣,走在琳瑯滿目的街道上,品嘗着 美味的章魚小丸子、鯛魚燒、棉花糖、刨冰……廟 會也會有很多不同的攤位遊戲:撈金魚、撈水汽球、 投球等,日本電視劇的畫面彷彿真實呈現在眼前。

long with deep-rooted Japanese culture and customs, annual summer festivals date back to Japanese ancestry - in particular, the Edo era - and has always been a major celebration for the whole nation. Originally intended to pray for good harvests, prosperous industries and families, they have now evolved into mega festivals where locals don their yukata (robes) and visit temples together.

05

It may look strange to the untrained eye, but yukatas are favored in summer as they are more lightweight, cooling and comfortable than a kimono. Directly translating to ‘bath robes’, that was also its original intention. Today, the robes have become the unofficial ‘attire’ for summer, and come in all styles parading the streets at summer festivals. With firework displays, temple fairs, yukata parades and more, the Osaka Tenjin Festival alongside the Kyoto Gion Festival and the Tokyo Kanda Festival are the festivals to watch out for. 01,03 - 05. 遊行隊伍浩浩蕩蕩,好不熱鬧。 02. 日本傳統藝妓也出現於祭典中。

浴衣與煙火

YUKATA & FIREWORKS

江戶時代以前,人們會穿着一件單衣入浴, 以防止被 澡堂中的牆壁和柱子燙傷,當時這種衣 物被稱為「湯帷子」。到了江戶時代,人們 改變了 入浴的形式,只會 浸泡 於 熱水中,於 是 湯 帷子的 用 途 也被 改 變了,成 為了出浴 後,外出穿 着的 休 閒和服,「浴衣」這個稱號也就出現了。其後在70 年代 末,受電視 劇 集的耳濡目染下,浴衣與 煙 火 大會從此便扣上了不可分拆的關係。 其實,煙火大會起源於江戶時代兩家煙火製造商 比賽放 煙火而來,現在已經成為夏日祭的一項重 要環節。配搭着和服的繽 紛色 彩、獨 特的花紋和 細 膩的手工藝,腳 踏着一雙木屐,年輕 女子婀 娜 多姿地遊走 於各大小煙火大 會中,為洋洋夏日增 添幾份色彩。 01. 日本習俗中,穿着浴衣時會不穿襪子,直接穿上木屐。 02. 淀川河道的美麗夜景。

efore the Edo period, steam baths were the norm. As bath towels were not used in Japan at the time, the Japanese would put on a yukata after a bath to dry their bodies. The rise of the public bathhouse created popularity for wearing yukatas on a regular basis. During the 1970s, the yukata and firework displays were inseparably linked to the earliest episodes of Japan’s soap operas. As a matter of fact, the fireworks display originated from the works of two firework manufacturers in the Edo era and has now become an important part of the summer festival. The firework displays and yukata-wearing are now synonymous with each other, and young women adoring the fireworks in their colorful kimonos is now a regular sight.

夏越大祓 NAGOSHI NO HARAE 夏越大祓是慶祝夏日來臨的傳統儀式,人們會在這 天到神社參 拜,一邊 跨過象徵淨化的茅草結環, 一邊誠心 祈求,神靈淨化自己於上半年 犯下的過 錯,並為下半年祈福,祈求事事順境。京都天滿宮 擁有全日本最大的茅草結環,故吸引眾多遊客前往 參拜,故即使全日本的主要神社都會舉辦夏越大 祓,天滿宮仍然最深得參拜人士喜愛。 Nagoshi no Harae is a simple ritual traditionally performed to celebrate the arrival of summer at the end of June every year. Though simple, it is steeped in tradition. Commonly known as a purification ritual, it allows one to cleanse themselves of misdeeds committed in the first half of the year and pray for a better half to come. The ritual is held at all major shrines in the country, but head to Kitano Tenmangu Shrine in Kyoto to view the largest chinowa - a tall sacred grass wreath and the symbol of purification - in Kyoto. 01. 參拜者跨過結環,祈求好運。 01

Ukai - a traditional fishing method using cormorant birds, is demonstrated to tourists during summer season. Said to have more than 1,000 years of history, Ukai is a valuable Japanese practice and important part of culture that is actively preserved in Kyoto and Gifu prefectures. There are only two places to view it in Kyoto; Arashimaya and Uji. Similarly, note that cormorant fishing is only common in summer, from July to September each year.

大阪和京都的古與今 ANCIENT & MODERN OSAKA AND KYOTO

在 江戶時代,大阪、江戶和京都並列為「三都」,屬

於日本人口最多的城市。

大阪歷史悠久,遠於繩文時代中期已經開始有人居住。 可惜因為經歷了多場歷史戰亂和都市開發,以致大阪 很多古建築都消失了。因為臨近瀨戶內海,大阪發展成 工商業和 水 陸空交通中心,並逐漸轉 變為一個 綜 合 性的現代工商業城市。大阪市中心的地下城— 彩虹 城商店林立,日夜 燈火通明,成為了一座聞名世界的 不夜城。 京都曾經是日本的首都,擁有相當豐富的歷史遺跡, 也是日本傳統文化的重鎮之一。在二次大戰中,京都 較少受到破壞,所以現在是日本少數仍然擁有豐富戰 前建築的城市之一。在1994年,多處古蹟列入世界文 化遺產,成為日本具代表性的觀光和文化都市。

D

uring the Edo period, Osaka, Edo and Kyoto were all known as ‘Santo’, Japan’s most congested city. Osaka has a long history; being inhabited in the middle of the Jomon period. As a result of wars and urban developments, many of Osaka’s ancient buildings have been unfortunately demolished. However, due to the proximity to the Seto Inland Sea, it has been developed into an industrial and commercial land and air transportation center – transforming it into a comprehensive modern city. Among them lies the shops in the underground city of Osaka, known as the Rainbow City in which is brightly lit through day and night. Unlike Osaka, Kyoto (capital of Japan at that time) was known as the wealthier cities of Japan and was able to preserve historical sites. It is one of the very few cities in Japan that still has abundant pre-war buildings merely due to the fact that it suffered less damage during the Second World War. In 1994, many monuments were included in the World Cultural Heritage, becoming a representative sightseeing and cultural city in Japan.

An elevated experience 按《新華字 典》的解 釋,按 摩指在人體一定 部 位 上,運 用 推、拿、按、摩、滾、揉、搖、 扳、拍等各種手法來治療 疾病的方法。有助 疏通經絡、行氣活血、滑利關節。 現在都市人生活繁忙,長期工作導致肌肉疲 勞、精神緊張。若然 在這個時候能夠享受一 個 按 摩療程,讓身心得以 放 鬆,那是多麼 美 好的事情 啊﹗很 多國家如:泰國、韓國、日本 等都流行按 摩,只是 形式有點不同,但都屬 於一種靈魂的享受! Traditionally, a massage refers to the treatment of body stress or pain through various methods such as acupuncture, rolling, kneading, or stretching certain parts of the body. In Chinese culture, massages are also known to have the role of clearing the meridians known as ‘qi’, relieving joint problems, or improving blood circulation. Many countries and cultures have their own forms of well-being treatment beyond traditional massage. Let us take a look at some different well-being treatments in Asia.

越南 水療

Vietnamese Spa 水療(Spa)已經成為了到越南必做的一件事。越南按摩 一般是以輕柔的手法,配合天然養生素材,如熱石法、 五行療法等喚醒你的身體。而最具特色非礦泥浴莫屬。 泥 漿內含礦 物 質、有機 物、微 量 元素和 某 些 放 射 性物 質,經過加溫後,浸泡其中可以達到健身袪病的養生功 效。女士試完後會發現皮膚立即變得光滑細膩。若然你 現在就心動了,不如直接行動去體驗一下吧! Just like Thailand is renowned for its massage techniques, Vietnam - or Nha Trang in particularis increasingly known for its mud spas. Other than being rich in natural minerals, soaking in the mud is said to alleviate ailments such as joint tension, rheumatism and skin irritations. Besides, the mud can also remove dead skin cells to reveal silky smooth skin for the ladies! Coupled with a Vietnamese massage, a trip to the spa will no doubt awaken your mind and body.

日本鹿兒島

指宿沙浴

Ibusuki Hot Sand Bath 位 於日本鹿 兒島最南端 的指宿 可 說是全年艷 陽高照, 氣候 溫 暖,從 古至今 都 是 泉 量 豐 沛 的 溫 泉 地。除了溫 泉,指宿的另一大特 色便是有2 0 0多年歷 史的沙浴。用 微 熱的黑沙蓋在身上,一會兒便會冒出小汗。享受着沙 帶來 的 溫 熱 同 時,傾 聽 着 海 浪 的 嬉 笑 聲,不知 不覺 便 把 旅 途中的 疲 憊 抺 掉!沙 浴內 的 泉 質含 鹽 酸 鈉 泉,對 於腰酸背痛、關節風濕等都有不同的效果,怪不得日本 人很喜愛沙浴! Located at the southernmost tip of Kagoshima in Japan, Ibusuki City is historically known for its hot springs with black sand spas resulting from naturally heated volcanic waters (est 50 to 55°C) thanks to surrounding volcanoes in the region. Dating back 200 years, the process is simple. Your body is meant to be covered all over with hot black sand, with only your face sticking out. Though it may be scorching hot in the beginning, it only takes some concentration and focus on the beauty and health benefits after it all to last through the recommended 15 minutes.


南韓 汗蒸幕

Korean Jjimjilbang 相傳汗蒸是當年為了替老百姓治病而研 發出來的。汗蒸可使體內垃圾隨 汗液一同排出,從而促進皮膚表面以及內部的活性;更能溫暖心臟,使血 液循環順暢,促進新陳代謝。 現在的汗蒸房形形色色,而基本的韓式汗蒸幕一般是將黃土和各種寶石 類石頭加熱,透過純天然寶石材料放 射出對人體有益的元素,促進血液 循環,加快體內廢物的代謝,以達到養顏美容的效果。怪不得韓國女生的 皮膚都這麼白滑細膩,原來汗蒸也幫了一大忙! Korean drama fanatics are no stranger to jjimjilbangs - the Korean version of public bathhouses. Usually gender segregated with hot and cold soaking pools, massage areas, saunas, entertainment lounges, and communal sleeping rooms, a trip to the public bathhouse can be a day’s itinerary by itself! Steaming is a popular activity within the jjimjilbang as it allows body waste to be discharged together with sweat, thereby allowing the skin's surface to breathe and stimulate blood circulation, which in turn enhances metabolism. No wonder the Koreans are known for their porcelain smooth skin - turns out… steaming helps! 照片來源 Photo Credits to: 德龍宮龍山汗蒸幕 Dragon Hill Spa & Resort

曾經有一段日子,傳統手工為獅子山下無數個

家庭帶來機遇,也為香港帶來蓬勃的經濟發展。 但 是隨着時代 轉變,工業轉型,香港年輕一代不 再 投身手工業,古老的本土手工藝無以為繼,逐 漸消失,不禁令人懷緬過去香港手工業的黃金歲 月。香港本土手工藝已經碩果僅存,當務之急是 保育和 傳承,讓本土工藝絕處 逢生,下一代也能 看到本土手工業的光景。

T

here was once a time in the olden days where traditional handicrafts was the bread and butter of countless families in Hong Kong. However, with the evolution of time and technological advancement in various industries, this intricate skill is slowly and sadly fading into history. In the age of automated assemblies, the golden age of Hong Kong handicrafts has passed its prime. Nonetheless, it is important to preserve a piece of this tradition, so that it will be remembered for future generations to come.

紮作技藝已經成為了香港非物質文化遺產,師傅以簡單的材料 如竹篾、紗布、色紙、絹布等,經過繁複的程序,一絲不苟地把 材料變成栩栩如生的花燈。這些紮作通常在新年或元宵才能 看到,它們承載了香港的歷史和文化。 One familiar with Chinese New Year traditions will have seen the prance of lion dancers in the centre of festivities. Yet, few know the intricate craft that go behind making the lion’s heads. Hand-woven with the traditional Chinese paper crafting method called ‘zhizha’ with simple materials like bamboo sticks, gauze and colored paper, the process is usually tedious and meticulous.

五光十色的霓虹招牌是香港的城市特色。八十年代,不論夜 總 會,當 舖 或食 肆 都 會以 霓 虹 燈 與同行 較 勁,照 亮 香港 街 頭。但 L ED 燈 的出現使 它步向式 微,街上的霓 虹 燈 逐 漸 被 取代。但它們近年受到藝術家的熱捧,出現於大小的作品當 中,使其繼續璀璨! In the 1980s, nightclubs or char chaan tengs alike would compete for attention in the dense space by the size of their ambient neon lights. As they were all tailor-made compared to mass-produced signage, it was a symbolism of family businesses and small - scale operations. With the homogenization of chains and franchises, the craft has given way to more sustainable LED lights.

在香港的橫街窄巷,有時會看到以油漆噴上的標 語,寫着「不准 吸煙」、「No smoking」等。其實這是來自香港的鑿字工藝。工匠 會按客人要求,以不同字型寫字,然後把原稿放在鐵皮之上,親手 使用工具鑿出不同的字,成為字模,製成的字模盡顯書法的剛勁 柔美,以它印成的文字亦非常獨特。 Spray-painted Chinese slogans used to be a common sight in Hong Kong’s narrow alleyways. Local craftsmen will write the characters in different fonts and slowly transfer them to an iron sheet before cutting it out. The characters are then transferred on walls by spray-paint where the softness of the initial calligraphy still remains.

現在如果需要打印文件,只需要一個按鈕便可以輕 易完成。但曾經有一段日子,活字印刷是商號的必 需品,例如印刷合同、單據或發票等。每一粒銅 模 也是由書法家精心書寫,再由工匠刻鑿,每間鑄字 廠的字體特色各有不同。只要小心翼翼地把銅制的 字粒排在活字版之上,便可以造出精美的印刷品。 可惜活字印刷敵不過科技,現在已經所剩無幾。 Historically, letterpress printing was once a must for traders. Each of the copper molds were carefully written by calligraphers and carved by craftsmen, and each of the caster's characters differ in style. As long as the copper characters were carefully placed on the movable type, fine prints can be made. Unfortunately, the movable type was soon replaced by newer technology.

五、六十年代,油尖旺一帶的賭檔成行成市,售賣 着各式各樣的賭具。憑着經驗,師傅手起刀落,準 確無誤地雕出一隻一隻麻將,再為其上色。自從有機 器雕刻麻將後,平價麻將只需數百元便有交易,手雕工 藝因而沒落。為了保留手雕麻將的價值,有些師傅會讓客 人訂造麻將,在上面雕刻其他東西,例如英文名字等。如果去 到麻將舖,不妨訂造數隻麻將當作禮物呢! In the 50s and 60s, the Yau Tsim Mong district used to be a gambling haven. Den masters could openly display and auction off all kinds of gambling instruments. With years of honed mastery, the mahjong tiles were carved with stunning precision before adding a splash of color. However the craft started to fade out with the arrival of mahjong carving machinery. To retain the value of hand-carved mahjong pieces, customized orders are now encouraged.

A stone’s throw away from bustling Causeway Bay, board a bus or take a taxi to the start of the hike. It is recommended to start at the twin peaks to end at Stanley Plaza or Repulse Bay where you can relax at sandy beaches and quaint cafes.

咖啡是不少上班 族的生活必需品,每天提神必

T

raditionally only popular in western cultures, the coffee scene in Asia is now thriving, due in part to the emergence of global coffee chains. Today, coffee has become a daily essential for most - (mostly) to deal with responsibilities in life or increasingly as a leisure option for social gatherings. However, coffee in Asia has grown beyond large international chains with many local coffeehouses taking a unique and local spin on the traditional black coffee. Here we take a look at some of Asia’s most sought-after coffee spin-offs.

作為一個多元化的城市,即使你想喝精品咖 啡或是 手搖咖啡,你都可以在這裏找得到。香港茶餐廳把咖 啡改良,調製出「啡走」和「鴛鴦」。「啡走」把咖啡走 糖並加入煉奶,煉奶有助把咖啡的味道變得更濃更香 滑,而且煉奶有足夠甜度,飲用時不用加入砂糖。而「鴛 鴦」是把咖啡和奶茶混合,兩者配合得天衣無縫,也象徵 了香港中西交融的特色。如此一來,「啡走」和「鴛鴦」便 成為了港人和遊客的最愛。 As a multi-cultural and racially diverse city, there are plenty of options for coffeeholics here in the urban jungle. Hong Kong's Char Chaan Tengs are known for their gazillion variations of coffee that needs to be ordered in the local lingo to be understood - by the servers. The ‘Yuan Yang’ which means half milk tea, half coffee, and ‘Feh Zao’ which means coffee with condensed milk and no sugar, are two of the more popular choices for locals. When in doubt, do as the locals do!

HK Express cares about our Guests’ health, safety and comfort onboard Safety first • Please read the safety instruction card in the back of each seat and pay special attention to our cabin crew during the safety demonstration at the beginning of each flight. • We value the comfort and safety of each of our Guests, including those with infants. All infants must be seated on the lap of an adult for the duration of the flight unless an additional seat has been purchased. Please be advised that your infant must however be strapped onto the adult’s lap with the infant seatbelt during takeoff and landing, and at any other time as instructed by the crew. • Laptops, Tablet and AV equipment must be switched off when the seatbelt sign is on. Guests are required not to use remote control or Bluetooth devices as they can interfere with the aircraft’s communications and navigation systems. • Loose items such as handbags or laptops must be stored underneath the seat in front or in the overhead lockers during take-off and landing.

No smoking • All HK Express flights are non-smoking. Please note that it is a criminal offence to smoke in any part of the aircraft. Your health & comfort • Try to walk around the cabin from time to time during your flight to encourage blood circulation, avoiding fatigue and muscle stiffness. • We would also recommend some simple stretching exercises every hour such as flexing your toes and raising your knees gently towards your chest. These exercises can potentially reduce the risks of blood clots in the legs, or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). • If you are prone to poor leg circulation, wearing specially designed flight socks or compression stockings can be extremely beneficial. • We recommend that our Guests try to minimize caffeine and alcohol consumption onboard to prevent health problems such as headaches, bloating and dehydration. Drinking water and fruit juices are the best options to keep your body suitably hydrated.
