素晴らしい日本の秋と冬 Beautiful Autumn and Winter season in Japan

今日は、夏日が戻りましたが、今週末に秋の気配が強くなると今朝の天気予報で伝えていました。日本の素晴らしいところは、秋の美しさ、そして冬のキリっと冷えた空気の中で映える冬景色であると夏嫌いの私たちレクシスジャパンのスタッフは思います。
Today, we have a Summer day again, but the forecast told us that Autumn weather is coming to the Kansai area this weekend. We Lexis Japan staff who don’t like the Summer weather think that the views of Japan in Autumn and Winter are the best.

秋 – Autumn

日本の秋の素晴らしさは、それを目の前にした人の心を洗うような美しさがあることだと思います。例えば、Lexis Japanがある、神戸の中心地から京都までは電車で1時間もあれば行くことができます。世界遺産である「京都 清水寺と紅葉」、名庭園である「永観堂と紅葉」、名橋である「渡月橋と紅葉」の風景は見る者の目を奪います。
What is great about Autumn in Japan is that you can feel your tiredness is gone when you see the  Autumn views. For example, you can go to Kyoto in one hour from Lexis Japan. You can see a lot of nice Autumn views such as a world heritage temple and Autumn leaves at the same time. Once you see this scenery, you cannot forget it ever!

そして秋には美味しいものがたくさん!日本では「食欲の秋」という言葉があるぐらいです

Autumn is the best season for a lot of food such as mushrooms, Pacific saury, fruits and nuts! My recommendation is Char-grilled Ginkgo nuts! Japanese people believe that we won’t get sick if you eat food in season! Actually this is kind of the right way to think, because they are full of nutrition if you have them when they are in season!
秋が旬の食べ物ってとても多いですよね!きのこ類、リンゴに柿、サンマ…私はなんと言っても焼き銀杏が大好物です。

秋の夜長の楽しみ方は人それぞれですが、Lexis Japanで授業が終わったあと、おいしいものを食べにいったり、京都に紅葉狩りにすぐに行けます。
There are many ways to enjoy the evening and night in Autumn. You can go to eat great Autumn food in Kobe (Kobe is famous for being a gourmet city!), or you can go to Kyoto for Leaf peeping (looking at leaves) after class!

 

冬 – Winter

たくさんの外国人がスキーやスノーボードを楽しむために日本に来ますね!Lexis Japanがある神戸からはバスや電車、飛行機を使って、外国人にも有名なスキー場に行くことができます。例えば白馬や妙高高原などは、冬のシーズンになるとたくさんの高速バスや夜行バスでのツアーがあり、安い値段で行くことができます。温泉も近くにあるスキー場もあるので、昼間はスキー場で楽しみ、夜は温泉でリラックスということもできますね!
A lot of tourists come to Japan to enjoy skiing and snowboarding. One of my Australian friends comes to Nagano every year for snowboading. He always says that the quality of the snow is amazing.
You can go to ski mountains in Nagano from Kobe, where Lexis Japan is, by bus, train and air plane. And there are many cheap bus tours from Kobe or Osaka in winter. Also, there are some Onsen Hot springs near ski mountains in Nagano, so you can enjoy skiing or snowboarding during the day time, and relaxing in onsens at night. Especially, outside baths, called ” Rotenburo” are fablous in the snow!

もちろん、外国人に有名な岩手の蔵王スキー場や、北海道のニセコスキー場などには、神戸空港からのアクセスもとても便利です。
Of course, the famous ski mountain Zao in Yamagata, or Niseko in Hokaido, are easy to access from Kobe airport!

冬もおいしいものがたくさん!!個人的には冬に食べることができる日本食が一番おいしいと思っています!寒い冬に、家族や友達と囲む鍋!Lexis Japanの留学生たちも、ホストファミリーと、そしてスチューデントハウスで仲間たちと鍋を囲んでいます。
There are a lot of great foods in winter! Actually, I think the Japanese food that you can have in Winter, is the best! Especially Japanese Nabe, the hotpot! There are many kinds of hotpots in Japan, and enjoying a hotpot and fun company with your family or friends is the best part of having them. International students at Lexis Japan enjoyed Japanese hotpot with thier host family or friends at the student house!

日本の秋、そして日本の冬を楽しみにLexis Japanに是非来てくださいね!
Please come to Lexis Japan to study Japanese and enjoy the beautiful weather and food!
