Luca (left) and Alice (Right) from Frankfurt, Germany. As you can see, Luca is over 190 cm. He told me that his father is taller than him. Big wow.
They are a couple and just graduated from high school in 2019.
They use a gap year to travel to Asia which is totally different culture compared to Germany. They are pretty active but calm too.
How we met in Tokyo
This is where we met. (actually in the metro station). This time, corona virus is literally going virus, then everybody wears masks for precautions.
They have been traveling for 3 to 4 months so that they look a little bit tired for me.
Because Okonomiyaki comes from where I grew up (Hiroshima), I could teach them not only how to cook but also the history of it. I think Luca and Alice enjoy Okonomiyaki a lot. Surprisingly, Alice has had Okonomiyaki in Frankfurt. I hope my Okonomiyaki is better than one she ate at home.
Okonomiyaki cooking tool
My favourite drink
Takoyaki is another Japanese traditional food which can be cooked easily. I was happy that they enjoy cooking Takoyaki. They remember Takayaki because my name is Taka. I hope they cook Takayaki at home too.
3. Pokemon Center
Japanese culture is not only food but also anime too. We went to Pokemon center and watch some Pokemon Center.
German food in return
Luca and Alice cooked for me in return to what I have done for them.
The last picture is typical teenage drink which sold in Japan. I want to drink in Germany next time.
Impression about Luca & Alice
I am very comfortable to stay with them. I realize that when I talk to them, I always feel big respect from them. I also felt that they are really mature and humble. I think that I was not mature like them when I was 18.
I told them my important messages that when I was a student, some adults supported me. Now its my turn to support you guys. So please support some younger generations when you become my age. Thats how our society goes.
Finally, we are in the luckiest point of our history. We can meet via small app and we can build everlasting friendship. So, please enjoy your travel and always do not forget to appreciate people around you.
dankeschön!!!!! bis später!!!!
