Learning something new: how to ski

Earlier this week, I went to Zao Mountains in Yamagata and tried downhill skiing for the first time in my life.

I used to go cross country skiing in Michigan but I never liked hills – even tiny ones – so I wasn’t sure if I could handle this. To my surprise, I actually really enjoyed going down fast and learned not to feel too scared of the speed. Yes, I fell down countless times but didn’t break any bones. Not too bad…

Learning something new is always refreshing – I can’t wait to go & try it again.

  1. What exactly is a Dayori? Peckish minds want to know what can spread aroma and flavour throughout the mouth.

    1. Dayori (or tayori/便り) means letter or something used for communication. Ichigo Dayori – strawberry letter. The shop makes several different types of the sweets depending on the season. I think they wanted the “send” seasonal flavor via their product?

      1. Ah! Cool thanks. Spreads flavour through the mouth like mail spreads news through the post.
