ready for AFC Asian Cup!!!

   Does he look familiar to you?Before Japan's national soccer team sets off for Qatar, the top player,本田圭佑,  Keisuke Honda, participated in Mochitsuki (pounding rice cake ceremony).nowadays, rice cake cooking machine becomes more popular than  Mochitsuki with a  pestlecrush and barrel. though. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApsYo1pCmMgwell, the following pics were taken by mough's friend in the 2010 World Cup, South Africa. I know how valuable they are cause only few pics in this training appeared in Japanese media. am glad to see the real faces of players in training. thanks for nice pics, mhough!! AFC Asian Cup 2011 is just about to kick off. The samurai blue and  Jordan teams compete on 9th.  hmmm  I will lose some sleep over live games.and... if someone will attend the  games in Qatar , do not forget to share their pics with me, please!!!The New Year's period is almost over. in front of neighbors gates or doors  門松(pine decorations) left from Jan.1 to 7,  although there are some regional differences in the period. today they are removed and burned...but this is no time to be sentimental.  YES... hurry on with my regular life. wish you good start of the year!!!

I like "this is no time to be sentimental," all the new year resolution, day dreaming, sleep walking, time is up. Let's get real and do something. By the end of year, it will be a great accomplishment if only 10% of what you dream come true. Let's start the New Year Action!

I think it's lovely to see nations celebrate new year longer than we do, we have the first and than forget the rest whereas the likes of Scotland party until the 6th. I really want Japan to do well and I'd like to bet on them but whenever I do they lose, so I'm just going to hope instead this time ;)

haha. seems few people care about AFC in China. at least i don't know it unless i see your blog.^^ Chinese national football team somehow represents the whole Chinese nation----hopeless. so, 日本隊加油! The New Year's period is almost over.----our year, Chinese lunar year, will be 10 days ago. So the real year has not yet come. Chinese lunar year is 5 times important than the solar year and is the REAL YEAR. i'm preparing for it. You mentioned 門松,in China people decorate their doors with pine branches (at least so in my hometown ) when it's 清明節, a festival for us to recall the dead. The same origin?
