Japanniversary week: Contest!

We are quickly aproching our first Japanniversary. 1 year ago, January 30th, we arrived in Sapporo. Time has sure flown by. It seems there are so many things that have happened in the last year that we wanted to take the time to do some looking back this week.

Each day this week, we will be blogging about our past year in Japan; wrapping up the year so we can dive full force into the next one!

To make things extra festive, we're also holding a contest!

Be the first to correctly answer the three questions as a comment below to receive a special prize from Japan. All the questions come from past blogs, so get searching!

Another special prize will be given to a random commenter between now and the 30th. So, be sure to comment on the posts through out the week to up your chances of winning the door prize.

We'll announce the winners on the 30th of January. Thanks for sharing in our life and ministry this year!

Now, on to the questions!

#1 What is the name of the traditional, yet disgusting, Japanese food Stephen had the misfortune of trying his first day in Japan?

#2 Learning Japanese is hard. Learning English words in Japanese is even harder. Kathryn spent a week or two guessing at the meaning of an English word pronounced in Japanese. What was the word in English, and how was it pronounced in Japanese?

#3 After making Mexican Rice-Bowls for church, what did the church members do with the extra black beans?


  1. wow! one year in japan~ nice :).

    mm.. i don't know the answer to these questions, but will definitely be waiting e-a-g-e-r-l-y for the answers!

    hmm.. is the first answer NATTO??? because... jonasan and i had the misfortune of trying it while we were there... =***[

  2. (1) Nato.

    (2) Volunteer / BorAntia

    (3) They used them as an ice cream topping

    I'm hoping my prize will be a bottle of "deep-roasted sesame" salad dressing. My wife fell in love with it while we were in Tokyo with the De La Cours. But her bottle of dressing is running low. :)

  3. I only knew 3, that the beans were used as ice cream topping cause that image stayed with me. And once Dan wrote Nato that sounded like a good answer.....number 2 not sure of but would like to find out the answers but I guess little Dan knows his stuff. Sandi Borba
