marolog - a story of lives (in Denmark)

What maro sees, hears, smells, tastes, touches, and feels in his life will be told in his way in this blog. So today, what you'll see through his eyes?


Today, I went to the Night Market in Richmond with a roommate and his friend. I didn't know about it before, but my roommate found its information in the book; which name is "Binbo Hima Ari", and it's a very famous free book in Vancouver!(Check "" when you wanna know about this book! It's also a useful web site.) The night market is like a "Yatai" which it's popular for in Japan or Taiwan, and we could enjoy shopping, eating, and taking photos until 11pm. This night market is opening every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday around midnight(until 11pm only on Sunday) between June 24th and September 25th.

This is "Kingyo Sukui" in Japanese, but in English...

it's called "Go Fish"!

「胸罩」in Chinese =「BRA」in English. It's interesting, isn't it?

This is a demonstration for selling magic towels. I've never seen this kind of sell style in Canada. It was first time for me to see it.

"Remote Cashing Machine"! It was also first time to see.

This is a booth for Japanese "Takoyaki". I had not eaten "Takoyaki" since leaving Japan. It was so long time!

This is a "Ohbanyaki" in Japanese. I loved it in Japan.

This is "Takoyaki"! This taste was almost same as in Japan.

This is "Oden" in Japanese. I missed "Nihonshu"(Japanese Sake) when I was standing in front of this booth.

This is like Japanese "Taiyaki". In English, it's called "Red Bean Waffles".

This booth was very popular, so there was a long line.

This is like Japanese "Chimaki", but unfortunately, it was not so tasty...

Have you ever tried "Cheese Tofu"? It was first time to eat it for me. My roommate and his friend could eat only one cheese tofu. I could eat over three. It had really strong smell like "kitchen garbage", but it tast was fried tofu.

This is the "Chinese Tofu".

We had a good time there. I suppose I'll come back here with other friends soon.
