幕別町、札内に住んでいますか。札内スポーツセンターで練習している武術クラブは6つあります。金剛カラテ、松濤館空手道、合気道、少林寺拳法、柔道、剣道があります。空手道は全身運動になりますので、一緒懸命やれば、かなりカロリー消費します。自分は一回で1300キロカロリーを消費します。もちろん、他にたくさんのスポーツ団体があります。 Do you live in Satsunai? Well then, if you wanted to study a fighting art, you've got choices.  Missing from this list is Kendo and Judo but there are clubs for those practicing here as well. It's good full body exercise.  Of course there are many other sports clubs as well.

ペットボトル入りのミネラルウォーターに、自然の性ホルモンに似た振る舞いをする化学物質が溶け出し、生体に影響を与える可能性があるという研究結果が発表された。世界中の研究室で使われる実験器具からも、プラスチック添加物が溶け出し、実験結果に影響を及ぼしている可能性があるという。

"Where are you from?"
"Japan."
"No, I mean, where were you born?"
"In Japan."
"You mean you were born in Japan?"
"That's what I said."
 A translation of a conversation held between my children and some other children at a festival we went to on Sunday.  They couldn't believe and never accepted that my children were Japanese.  Well, my children are Japanese and they are American as well.  I recently read an article by Michelle Reimann on being, in her words, a hafling.  You can read the article here: http://thoughtcatalog.com/michelle-reimann/2014/10/what-its-like-to-be-half-japanese/

As a half-to-quarterling (2 to 7 countries in my genes and history depending on how you count), I can tell you that this question and surprise won't be going away anytime soon - even in perhaps the most cosmopolitan city in the cultural mosaic that is Canada. On very rare occasions I've been informed by a person that I am actually Portuguese / Indian / Italian / Brazilian / Pakistani / Egyptian. My sister has had it worse: she's traveled more, and had many older people insistently speak to her in a language she doesn't know, to fill out their immigration forms.

This can be frustrating. There is another side.

People hate surprises, and that disbelief is usually surprise. People also love surprises, and the look of interest and then wonder as they learn about your deep connection to a diverse history. It's something I miss now, actually. in Toronto (and all of Canada that I've experienced) it's just understood that 'where are you from' is an honestly curious and polite way to ask 'who do you think you are?'

Thanks for sharing your story. I'm off to read the article you referenced now. If there's any advice in this, it's to remember that the questions we ask socially are rarely the questions we actually ask socially. If you answer the question meant some wonderful things can happen.

PS. I meant to note: my daughter adds yet another country to the mix, so there may be further bulletins on the subject as she moves through kindergarten.

One of many Cycling Stations set up around Hokkaido.  This one is in Makubetsu-cho at the Kumagera House, just a short distance from Route 38.
