Exhibition of Shinkai Makoto

Hello Everyone! What did you do on your weekend?

I had a meaningful event on Saturday because I went to exhibition of Shinkai Makoto, director of the movie [your name]!. It is held in Takashimaya from 2/16 ~ 3/3. Here is information!

I have plan next week, so last Saturday was the last chance to visit there.

In front of the Exhibition

Definitely I love [your name] the most, but besides it there were other works of Shinkai Makoto. From his first work, I could watch the whole process of his movie developing gradually.

Sadly, taking picture inside was prohibited so I didn’t take any pictures. There were a lot of scenario and continuity(conti) of his works; ほしのこえ, 雲のむこう、約束の場所, 秒速5センチメートル, 星を追う子ども, 言の葉の庭 and 君の名は.

I was attracted to 言の葉の庭 in the exhibition. I didn’t know this movie until I visit here, so I thought it was really lucky to go to the exhibition! I watched it before I go to sleep that night.

I really like the afterglow of appreciation! The background was especially beautiful 🙂

なばなの里

I often go to Nagoya station, and always impressed by the beautiful illumanations.

Illumination around Nagoya station

On last Sunday, my best friend came from Korea then we went to more special place to see illumination, Nabananosato. We went to Nabananosato soon after having lunch, and waited until it becomes dark in Onsen.

It was incredibly wonderful Onsen

Five different types of Onsen made us happy!! We seriously doesn’t want to go outside the Onsen, so we almost miss the Illumination.

When we went outside, beautiful illumination spread beyond my eyes.

And this was the highlight of the illumination! The motive of the illumination was mountain Fuji.

The Illumination was a movie! I thought it might be
traditional story of Japan, but I am not sure.

Even the illumination was beautiful, my body was getting frozen. I am used to the weather of Nagoya so it was extremely cold! But my friend said Nagoya is very warm…^^. I really missed the Onsen.

So.. my point is, it is a little bit strange but,

イルミネーションも良かったけど私はなばなの里の中の温泉がもっと良かったです.もし機会があればぜひ行ってみてください~

My first day at Nagoya

Hello! こんにちは! 안녕하세요~
My name is Woori, and I am the international intern from 2018. November~ 2019. May in GRIT!

It has already been three weeks since I came to Japan. Time is FLYING! Really. I have my own blog from now on, and I am going to write about wonderful experience until I am here.

And today, I will talk about the day I came to Nagoya on November 24. When I got to the airport, it had been raining and very dark in Korea.

나고야 첫날 영상

The rain made me very very.. NOT sad! not at all. I was just so excited about what will happen? what kind of people I will meet? and most important, what will I eat??:D

Well, my friend told me this later, that the rain was changed to snow! It was first snow this year in Seoul when I arrived in Japan.

I wish I can see snow in Nagoya someday.

When it was snowing heavily in Korea, I was meeting new friends in warm Nagoya. Before I come to Japan I was heard from my TN manager, Aoi that four people will go to the airport. But… Surprise, surprise!
Seven AIESEC members came to the airport to see me.

very nice to meet you all guys!

Including me, about eight people were there. Yeah! We were a large group, so we couldn’t even sit all together in the lunch time. I was so welcomed by the AIESEC members, thanks to all!

After eating lunch with AIESEC members, I went to Nagoya station where I met Rie san for the first time. She took me to where the GRIT! members existed.

It was a gym, not the office! 

As I found out, they were in the middle of sport competition. When I arrived there, they started to run very enthusiastically, and enthusiastically fell down… Are you okay??

After dinner, I visited the GRIT! office, where I will work for next 6 months. When I arrived there I was stunned by the big sound, a bark sound! There were three big dogs, Ume, Niko and Huku. I knew there are dogs in advance but honestly, I was a little bit scared at first because they are bigger than I thought and also imagined what if they bite me?

But as time passes by I am fully adjust to these dogs, and now they are in charge of my healing time. These lovely dogs also remind me of parrots in my home in Korea.

He is very lovely parrot!

After visiting GRIT! office, I cleaned my luggage and fell asleep like a baby. It was really long day and extremely excited. I wish I can make great memories with nice people!
Thanks to everyone welcomed me warmly.
