Are you working with a smile?

character_28.jpgHi,This is Aphro.

These days.I think many desk workers are using too much computers.and show their happy faces less and less.
I think it is very important to smile for our life as a human being.

So this time,I will introduce to you Adventure World in Shirahama.This facility which located in Shirahama town of Wakayama prefecture has zoo ,aquarium and amusement park.

aws.JPGThe most famous are giant pandas.
The number of pandas is No.1 of the world except China.and the Dolphin and Penguins are very famous here, the breeding of Penguins is very successful too.

girraf.JPGyou can feed elephants or  giraffes very near.

Recently,There are many amusement parks and theme parks are closed in Kansai.However, The Adventure World is keeping running for over 30 years.

There are a lot of difficulties since Adventure World opened .But all the staff are trying their best and making a great efforts to make it better and better.


Why Adventure World is so popular?
I think thats because everyone smiles there. When you stay with anmials and nature ,you can be so relax and be one part of it which can not be felt by computers or TVs.

Do you smile these days?




smile.JPGI recommend you should go to Night Marine Live when Summer or Golden weeks. I am sure you will be touched by the beautiful view and dolphin shows.

Mecca of Japanese baseball

character_28.gifHi,This is Aphro.

Do you know Koshien?
It is a baseball filed .it is also the Mecca of Japanese baseball,Professional baseball team Hanshin Tigers.

In Japan, the baseball congresses of High school  are very popular .There are two biggest congresses of Spring and Summer which are broadcasted by TV .

This is maybe different from other countries.Who is good at baseball will be the hero of Japan.Many people in Japan like watching baseball. especially over 40s. So you can see how big effection of TV.The Young generations prefer soccer or other sports.

koshien_01.JPGDo you like baseball?
As you might know that a baseball game was originated in the U.S.




However, the manners and styles of cheering games in Japan
have differently and uniquely developed and evolved from those
in the U.S.

koshien_02.JPGOne example of the unique cheering manners in Japan is that every
professional baseball players in every team has his own rooters' song
and when he is at bat, his fans sing his song all together with playing drums and trumpets.

Among 12 teams in the Japan professional baseball league,
Hanshin Tigers has exceptionally enthusiastic and fanatic fans in
the manners how they cheer Tigers' players.
 
koshien_03.JPGTalking about the Koshien stadium, Tigers' home ground, is always occupied with Tigers' fans 80 percent or more of its capacity, and in the bottom of seventh inning before they are at bat, all the Tigers' fans fly huge numbers of colorful balloons at the same time.It's really an unbelievably fantastic scene and it's a must to see.
 


Another example of attractions for spectators in the Koshien Stadium is that beer and drinks are sold by solely young and cute women.The vendors work as a part-time basis, and they walk around spectators' seats while the game is on. It seems that beer can definitely sell well by young women for baseball fans of Hanshin Tigers .
 
At all times, it's really a unique and unexpected experience for you, so why don't you go there to watch the game and enjoy such special atmosphere there?
