Get a strange look for Halloween with Japanese Shironuri style

Don’t know what to wear this Halloween? So this post will help you. Believe me, Shironuri style is a perfect choice for you if you love Japanese style ❤

Japanese shinoruni street style

First I think I should introduce a little bit about Shironuri style. “Shironuri” means “painted white”, and originally referred to the traditional makeup worn by Japanese geisha, maiko, and kabuki performers. It is also a kind of streetstyle in Japan that people wear white makeup, white hair and white outfit. Actually it does not have to be all white but still very strange and quite weird. However Shironuri is quite popular in Japan and many young people wear this style everyday on the street. If you are not Japanese, I am sure that you will scare many people with this white look Σ(°△°|||)︴.

Byeee, I hope you will enjoy your Halloween!

Japanese water cake

HAVE YOU EVER TRIED A TRANSPARENT CAKE ?

I’m talking about the Japanese water cake. Oh, you probably cannot imagine how a cake can be made of water, right? To answer this question, let’s have a look at this ‘crystal’ (that’s how I call it hehe) and I swear this Japanese water cake looks and tastes unlike any dessert you’ve tried before 😉 .

Japanese water cake

I had a chance to try the water cake in a Japanese restaurant in Hanoi and it’s absolutely impressed me. It looks like a large drop of water, but it’s actually a cake. This Japanese invention is as delicate as it looks and sounds, but it needs to be consumed in only 30 minutes, after which it will simply turn into a sweet puddle of water.

This water cake is perfectly transparent which absolutely impress me when I first saw it. It is made of water sourced from the Southern Japanese Alps, lightly sweetened, and solidified just enough to give it a definite shape. That’s why it’s called mizu (water) shingen mochi’.

You can see that it looks like a crystal but so smooth and melts in your mouth. It has a pleasant natural sweetness that I cannot describe how awesome it tastes. Add the rich kinako powder and brown sugar syrup and it goes incredibly smoothly down your throat.

Japanese culture naked festival

On the last Saturday of February every year, thousands of young men across Japan attend at Saidaiji Shrine which is located in Okayama to participate in the unique naked festival named Saidaiji Hadaka. During the festival, 9000 men scramble for a pair of lucky wood charms which was thrown by monks.

Oh, I almost forget to tell you that they are not totally naked in the festival (⌒_⌒;) . Actually they still wear white loin-cloth named fundoshi and socks. Their personal information and contacts are hold in the loin-cloth before joining the festival, just in case of accident or injury when scrambling.

When the clock strikes exactly 10 pm, everyone gather together at the shrine, then the monks throw two wood lucky charms to the crowd. Participants start shouting loudly ‘Wasshoi! Wasshoi” while scrambling the two wood charm. Then, they try to  put the charms into the masu wood box.

The man who win the lucky charms means that he will have luck all year. Then, the rest also touch the lucky guy to spread out the good luck around.
