Yukata Party 2012 Report 2

Hello everyone!!

Continued from the previous report, it is Belgium quiz time!


yukata party quiz

yukata party quiz

My hair style is like chimney! (Laugh)



Let’s take a look at what kind of quizzes we had.


(1) Which country did Belgium became independent from in the 19th Century?
(2) GODIVA is famous for its chocolate. Where is its birth place?
(3) How do you say “Japan” in Dutch?
(4) What do you call beer made in Trappist monasteries?
(5) “The Geographer” was painted by Vermeer. What kind of clothing is the man wearing?


The answer to the last question is Kimono.



Now, International Vermeer and Vermeer-Related Events were held in Tokyo at the Metropolitan Art Museum.
In addition, Belgium became independent from the Netherlands in the 19th Century. It is said that the Japanese Kimono was popular in the Netherlands and Europe around the 14th Century and many artists completed paintings of persons dressed in Kimonos.


I thought Belgium is a long way away from Japan, unexpectedly enough, Belgium and Japan have “a Japanese Kimono bond.”



Answer check….! Who answered all quizzes perfect?!

What presents did they get?

In addition, each party participant receives
a special coupon in a gift bag which is given to them at the end of the party.

We listened to a brief lecture and learned that Belgium beer is very profound!



These glasses…. and

belgian beer

This one. Do you see the differences of its shapes?

belgian beer


It is said that there are many types of glassware for beer in Belgium. For example there are tulip types, sacred cup types, wide at the bottom types, a woman’s body type and so on…


We have to select the glass with beer brand.
Belgium beer is sold with a particular type of glass and to drink it in any other kind of glass is   incorrect.



glasses belgian beer

How many gorgeous glasses sit on the kitchen counter!



There are more than 800 beer brands, and there are beer kinds such as wine beer.


If you have the opportunity, why don’t you try and enjoy drinking Belgium beer?
