[SG] - Japan Park Singapore 2018

[Media Invite]

Japan - is always one of the top country on our kiddos' mind when it comes to the next destination of travel. Apart from being a big fan of Japanese cuisine, the children grew up playing Vanguard cards, watching manga and our girl is deeply immerse in anime.

JAPAN PARK SINGAPORE, an all-in-one Japan event allows you to experience Japanese food, travel, traditional culture, entertainment, sports at the same time! Held at Suntec Singapore Exhibition & Convention Centre, the 2-day convention brings an assembly of the best offerings from Japan’s 47 Prefectures curated into 6 Zones, namely WA-Shiok Gourmet Festa, Discover Japan, Technology & Lifestyle, Omakase Stage, Kids Sports and CharaExpo Mini.

CharaExpo Mini Zone

Our boy grew up with Vanguard ! We still hold the first edition of the cards when it started in 2011. Time flies!

WA-Shiok Gourmet Festa - Do not miss out Keisuke's booth serving Queen & King Ramen on Saturday and Sunday respectively! Do note that there are only 500 bowls each day! Head for this first to avoid disappointment.

This bowl of Queen Ramen is filled with goodness! The soup base is made with chicken broth and 5 kinds of clams giving a very rich seafood flavour! Served with thick slices of Kagoshima Black Pork Chashu, every bite is simply heavenly! Did I mention the fish ball with clams is so tender and tasty?  Not forgetting the Osyter Confit, Mussel steam with sake and onsen egg that is made to perfection.

Thumbs up for Queen Ramen!

Ginza Lion's Roast Beef Don - perfect for those who like rice bowl

Lots of roast beef slices top with wasabi sauce and egg. 

Teppei Syokudo - Chicken Nanban served with rice is also pretty delicious. Good choice for the little ones. 

Omakase Stage - A series of performances (including talk shows, songs and dance, Sumi Art Live Drawing etc) will be happening at the stage area during the weekend.

We are privilege to catch the Japanese traditional dance performance by legendary figure, Nishikawa Ukon along with his students.

The children also enjoyed live performance by Kiwako Ashimine, an aspiring 20 year old Okinawan singer.

Discover Japan - Fell in love with the Daruma when we passed by Takasaki booth! If only I can bring one back home :) 

Do you know that Daruma's eyebrows are represented by crames, its beard by turtles and its round shape represents happiness? Notice that the eyes are white? Colour in the right eye (as it is facing you) with black ink. This is called "Kaigan", meaning the "eye opening". Once your wish is fufilled, colour in the other eye of your Daruma to show your appreciation, thus "opening" both its eyes. Each colour also has a different charm. For example : Red is for safety, good fortune and victory while a blue Daruma represent successful life, independent and job securement.

We heard a lot about Ninja, but never knew there is actually a city of Ninja! At Koka City booth, you can also try your aiming skill with the shurikens. 

What attracted me more are these cuties! Aren't they adorable!

Lifestyle & Technology - Learn the discipline and process of Japanese Tea Ceremony at the SAMURAI Room.
