Purikura プリクラ

Purikurayı duymuşsunuzdur büyük ihtimalle. duymayanlar için biraz anlatayım buradan :) böyle kabin gibi küçük odacıklar var, oraya girip fotoğraf çekiyorsunuz, sonra da o fotoğrafı istediğiniz gibi süslüyorsunuz:) Bir de insanı olduğundan 10 kat fln güzel gösteriyor:D gözleri de feci büyütüyor. Japonların biraz göz kompleksi var da. Biz mesela bayılıyoruz küçük gözlere, ama Japonlar da bizim gözlerimize hayran:D

I think you have heard about purikura. They say it is the abbreviation for print club. There are photo booths and you enter inside with your friends or alone, there you take photos:) after completing taking photos, you decorate your photo as you like:) It shows people 10 times more beautiful than normal :D Also your eyes get bigger and bigger, as Japanese people have complex about their eyes. They like bigger eyes. However, personally I love Japanese people's eyes very much. It is cute really :)

プリクラって海外にあんまり見たことない。多分日本と韓国だけかな。
だから私プリクラに夢中ですw
友達と遊びに行ったらすぐプリクラに行こうよってしつこくてw

そう言えば日本人って自分の目あんまり好きじゃないといつも聞いてるけど私にとってはちっちゃい目の方が絶対かわいいよ!

Bunların içine girip purikura çekiyoruz:) we take photos inside of these booths


 arkadaslarımla çektirdiğim purikura sayısı 200e yakındır herhalde:) Buraya birkaçını koyuyorum :)

I am sure there are 200 or more purikuras I have taken with my friends so far. However I add some of them here:)

多分今まで二百ぐらいのプリクラ撮ったと思うんだけどここんちょっとだけ入れてみます(*^^)

Chofu'da Festival, Festival in Chofu, 調布の祭り

Yaz aylarinda, Japonya'da bol bol festival oluyor. Eskilerden beri yapilan bir festivalmis benim katildigim da. Standlar fln kurmuslardi, bir suru yiyecek satiliyor, degisik dans gosterileri oluyor. Bir de acayip kalabalik oluyor ;)

During summer days, there are numerous festivals in Japan. The one I went to was a traditional one and has been hold since ancient times. There were food stalls everywhere, people were dancing as well ;)
Further it was one of the most crowded festivals in Japan :)

夏に調布にある祭りに行きました。日本の夏って楽しいね。いろんな祭りとか花火とかバーベキューとかあるし。

もう夏が懐かしくなってきちゃったわw。


maskelerin altinda cocuklar var ;) dans ediyorlardi, yerim ben onlari <3
you can see the children under the masks ;) I adore children <3
マスクかぶってるの子供だねw
子供が大好き!特に日本人の子供w



Ibadet etmeyi bekleyen Japonlar;)
Japanese people waiting to worship;)
参拝のための列^^

balik tutma oyunu. elimizdeki beyaz sey, kagittan yapilmis. o yuzden suda uzun sure kalinca ortasi yirtiliveriyor. eger onu yirtmadan baligi yakalarsan, baligi alip evine goturebiliyorsun. Beslemek icin tabii ki;)

This is kind of a game. We are trying to catch fish. and the thing we are holding is made of paper. so if you put it inside the water for a long time, it will be torn. and the game is; you catch fish before the paper is torn. if you manage to do it, you can take the fish home! Of course for feeding it as a pet ;)

これって知ってますか?魚をとるゲームw。初めての経験で超楽しかった。

魚かわいそうなと思ったからちょっと罪悪感だけどね。

bu da benim yakaladigim baliklar.

This is the fish I succeeded in catching.

私のとった魚。

Japon ev yemegi ;) Sebze kizartmasi, japon patatesi (kahverengili olan, kabuklarini soyunca da beyaz olan ici cikiyor.) Tavuk kizartmasi (karaage) pilav ;)

Japanese traditional food. Vegetable fry, Japanese potato (the one with brown color. when you peel it, it becomes white and really yummy) Fried chicken which is called karaage and rice ;)

家での日本食。野菜炒め物、からあげ、里芋、ライス^^

Odaiba`da eski arabalarin oldugu bir muze.

Eglence parkina gittik. Resmini cekip boyle yuzunu yansitiyorsun. Her seyi bilgisayar ortaminda yapmislar ama oldukca gercekci ve basarili. Soldaki mal surat benim, evet.

We went to Amusement park in Odaiba. You scan your face and they reflect it to the screen. It is all done with the help of computers but seems so realistic and really successful. The stupid one on the left is me!

お台場にある遊園地に行った。 ジョイポリスと言う名前でめっちゃ楽しかった。人形のお化け屋敷に入った。
マッジ怖かった。

日本の怖い話ってなによりも怖くないw

この写真では自分の顔のスキャンをとったら画面に映る。ちょう楽しかった。左にあるあほな顔残念ながら私です。

yemege hucum eden ben ;(
I am trying to catch the food...;(
えさ食べに行ってるわw

Japonya`da kedi kafeler mevcut. kedilerin oldugu kafe yani. kedileri severek yiyip iciyorsun fln. ben henuz gitmedim ama gider gitmez resim eklerim. bu da o kafelerden bir tanesinin girisi.

there are cat cafes in Tokyo. you can play with the cats while you are eating your food or drinking your coffee. I have not been there yet but once i go there, i will upload the pics asap. Here is the entrance of a cat cafe ;)

猫カフェの入口。まだ行った事無いけど行ってみたいなと思う。面白そう。w

Acik havada bir kafe. asagidaki yemegi de burada denedim.
Outside cafe. I ate the food that i would show in the following picture, here.
青山で適当にプラプらしてる時246commonと言ういろんな店の集まった場所を見つけた。
以下の写真にあるご飯もここで食った。

Japonya`da sevdigim seylerden bir tanesi de, her gun farkli farkli yiyecekleri deneyebiliyorum. Bunu da hayatimda ilk denemis oldum. Tarcinli limonlu sicak sarap ve domatesli iskembe ;))) onyargiya hayir! ;D

what i love most about Japan is that i can eat many kinds of different food each and every day ;) I tried this one for the first time in my life as well. hot wine with cinnamon and lemon, the food is: tripe with tomato.

日本ですごく好きと思う事の一つは毎日新しい料理を食べれることです。w
これも人生で初めて経験した。シナモンとレモン入ってるホットワインとトマト入ってるもつ。美味しかったよ!

abura soba denilen noodle yemegi ;) cok leziz bir sey gercekten. ama pek saglikli degilmis. cunku cok yagli. adi da yag sobasi gibi bir sey. (abura:yag);D

I ate abura soba which is kinda noodle dish. they say it is not really healthy because it includes so much oil inside. name itself says so (abura:oil) ;D

油そばでーす!大好きやけどちょっと体に悪そうだからあんまり食べ過ぎない方がいいよねw

Evde genelde Turk yemegi yapiyorum. Kofteli iskender yapmaya calistim ama tabii ki Turkiyedeki`nin yerini tutmaz;D

I m trying to cook Turkish food most of the time at home. This is meatball kebap. But of course it was not as delicious as the one in Turkey ;D

家ではほとんどトルコ料理作ってます。残念ながら日本食はまだ下手だからな。。。
これはミートボールのケバブと言えるかなw

トルコで食べてみるとホントに美味しいよ!

Uygur Yemegi, Uyghur Food, ウイグル料理

Hayatimda ilk defa Uygur yemegi yedim ;) O da sansima Tokyo`da oldu ;) Turk yemegine biraz benziyor; ama garibime giden, yemegin yaninda sekerli yogurt yiyorlardi. Herkes oyle mi bilemem tabi de, benim gittigim yerde pilav yaninda sekerli yogurt geldi o.O

I have eaten Uyghur food for the first time in my life. and the funny part, I tried in Tokyo;) It is kind of similar to Turkish food but what I think a bit weird is that they are eating sweet yoghurt with the rice. I do not know if all of the Uyghur people are doing it but where I went was serving sweet yoghurt ;D anyway I enjoyed it ˆˆ

この間新宿の裏側にある店にウイグル料理を食べに行った。人生で初めてのウイグル料理だったししかもウイグルかトルコじゃなくて日本で体験した。なんか面白いw

私は変だなと思ったのはご飯と一緒に来た甘いヨーグルトだった。日本人にとっては普通かもしれないけどトルコ人ってご飯としょっぱいヨーグルトしか食べないのよ!だから面白い経験になったな。

Fasulyeli, hiyarli salata
Salad with beans and cucumber
豆とかキュウリとか入ってるサラダ

I went to Yoyogi Park which is really big and a famous one in Tokyo. You can relax and enjoy yourself at the weekends. I played frisbee with the children, drank beer and ate snack, and lay on the grass.I used to lay on the grass a lot in my university which is called Bogazici Univ, I miss it a lot!

この間代々木公園に行ってすっごく楽しい時間過ごした。
天気も良かったからフリズビをやったりビールを飲んだり芝生でゴロゴロしたりした。

トルコでの大学で芝生いっぱいあったので友達と皆でそこでゆっくりしてた。そりゃはマジ最高だったな!

週末には東京からあんまり離れないのでほとんど東京であっちこっち行ってます。

まだ見てない場所いっぱいあると思うけどね。全部発見出来ますようにw

Turk Kultur Merkezi ayda bir kahvalti gunleri duzenliyor. Sadece bir kez katilabildim cunku turk lirasiyla 60 TL fln ediyor kisi basi. ama cok lezzetli seyler yapiyorlar sagolsunlar;)

Turkish Culture Center holds Turkish breakfast day once in a month. I joined only one time as it is really expensive for me. But it was really yummy and real Turkish breakfast that I miss a lot in Japan ;)

新宿にあるトルコ文化センターってご存知ですか?
トルコのイベントとか朝ご飯とかトルコ語の授業とかいろいろやってるので
興味がある方は是非見てみて下さい!
これはトルコの伝統的な朝ごはんです。すっごくうまいですよ!

知らない人の写真がこっそり撮るのダメってしっとるけどそうやるの大好きだわw

夜の東京が大好きだし夜は気持ちよいし

いつも自転車か歩きで夜プラプラしに行ってるので後で夜の写真もっと入れちゃいます。
Tokyo`dan birkac gece manzarasi. Tokyo`nun gecesine bayiliyorum...Bazen bisikletle bazen de yuruyerek gece turlari atiyorum Tokyo sokaklarinda, super bi duygu, tavsiye ederim;)
Ilerleyen zamanlarda daha cok foto eklicem;)

I love night in Tokyo, it makes me feel peaceful. Sometimes I go out at night by bicycle or on foot and i really enjoy doing it! I will add more photos in the following posts;)

Okinawa, 沖縄

Okinawa, Japonya`nin guneyinde adalar grubu. Deniz, yemekleri, dogasi harika bi yer. Naha, havaalanin oldugu yer ama biz arkadasla Kumejima denilen, Naha`ya gemiyle 4 saat uzakliktaki baska bi adaya gittik. Beyaz kumu, berrak suyu ile sahilleri harikaydi. Yemekler de hem cok saglikli hem asiri leziz. Bu arada dip not geceyim, dunyada en uzun yasayan insanlar Okinawa insanlariymis;)

Okinawa is  is the southernmost prefecture of Japan. It consists of several islands. Naha is the centre place of Okinawa but me and a friend went to Kumejima which was 4 hour far from Naha by ship. Kumejima island has very pretty beaches with its white sand and clear water. Also the food was not only amazingly delicious but also very healthy. Let me give you a PS, Okinawa is the place where people live longest all over the world ;)

この間夏休みの時沖縄に行ってきた^^

日本に興味持ってから一番行きたい場所はずっと沖縄だった。この間行けて本当に嬉しい。しかも東京よりもそこで住みたいなと思った。食べ物美味しいし人は優しいし海めっちゃ綺麗だし。。。まだ行ったことない皆さん是非行ってみて下さいね。

後は聞いた話なんだけど沖縄の人って世界で一番長生きするらしいっすよ!^^

Hatenohama denilen denizin ortasinda olan bi sahil. Gemiyle gidilebiliyor sadece. Biz de gunubirlik turla gittik.  Envai cesit balikla yuzduk;)
Here is called Hatenohama and it is an island beach on the sea.It is not possible to go there any other vehicle than ship. so we attended a day trip to here. It was an amazing experience to swim with many kinds of fish.

Su cok berrakti, kucuk baliklari bile rahatlikla gorebiliyorsunuz.
Water was so clear that you can even see the smallest fish.
水はとても透明でちっちゃい魚でも見えてた。

dikkatimi en cok ceken seylerden bir tanesi; Japonlar kiyafetle yuzuyor;D Tabii ki mayo bikini giyenleri de mevcut ama genelde kiyafetliydiler ;) Galiba sadece Okinawaya ozelmis kiyafetle yuzmek.
What attracted me much was the fact that Japanese swim with their clothes. Of course there are some people wearing swimsuit;D I am not sure but i heard from my friend that it is peculiar to Okinawa to swim with clothes.
なんかびっくりしたことに沖縄の人って服で泳いでた。最初はえぇと思ったけどまあ普通みたいだからイイね!


ゴーヤチャンプルに夢中になってしまいwほとんどゴーヤチャンプルしか食べてないな。w
Goya chanpuru denilen Okinawa yemegi. Goya epey aci bi sebze ve icine yumurta salam ve sos koyularak pisiriliyor. Ilk defa Okinawada yedim bu yemegi ama gercekten cok sevdim hatta bundan baska bir sey yemedim bile diyebilirim ;D
