THE CLOUDS ARE THE SAME

Minasan, after 13 years I came back to Japan following Sensei in this trip to the Samurai`s land!

We`ve left from Sao Paulo on Monday straight up to the other side of the world!

All of these years, since the first time that Sensei took me to Japan in 2002. I`ve always said that this trip is a "Chinese deal"* (oops), because we`ve paid an expensive air ticket, and then, everything in Japan is expensive, but actually it`s a bargain if considering a journey to the other side of the world!
*"Chinese deal," an expression meaning a good deal.

What should Wenzel (Uenzel*) think about Japan after 13 years? Sensei was curious, would I believe that Japan changed a lot?
I`ve agreed writing a little about this, and I share with all of you some thoughts. I apologize in advance for the size of it.
* "Uenzel" - Sensei kindly pronounces Senpai Wenzel`s name in this way.

The trip is extensive, there`s no other way. Our scale is in London.

IN JAPAN WITH SENSEI 2 - Senpai Wenzel

SENSEI, PROMPTLY EARLY

Promptly early, Sensei knocks on the bedroom door only once. It`s a sign that we`re leaving. It´s time to pick up the backpack already set, jump in the shoes prepared in front of the door, properly pointed out, and reach the Sensei in the corridor towards the elevator.

With the time still "confusing", I had slept a little early in the night and then spent the whole night awaken, answering emails and writing the first text of the trip. At 5:20 am Sensei called the room announcing that the day reserved four missions to be resolved, quickly enumerated each and confirmed that we would leave at 6:00 am.

It was the perfect time to finish the text, include some pictures and wear kimono and hakama.

At exactly 5:52 am, seven minutes early, Sensei knocks on the door. If he hits at 5:53, it would be six minutes plus a few seconds. To not lose even these seconds, Sensei`s early 7 minutes, are so accurate that you have a few seconds to spare. This is what we call the Sensei Time in Niten. We have in Niten always the clock set by Brasília time (GMT -3), usually marked on the cell phones and we have the "Sensei time", accurate 7 minutes early, which is the current time in Sensei`s wristwatch. And that`s what is considered when we`re with Sensei. Particularly in Gashukus and Shugyos. Yes, sometimes it`s a little confusing, I also found it very confusing. Why not keep a schedule just and score a little earlier ?! But just because of this confusion, we end up throwing more energy into the perception of time, we always have to do a little arithmetic and become more aware of the time we actually are. It works.

In Japan with Sensei 3

IN JAPAN WITH SENSEI 3 - Senpai Wenzel

GOOD MORNING VIETNAM!

(or "the third and final email of the trilogy of a trip to Japan with Sensei")


"Yesss! ...", "... Yesss!". Japanese speaking "yes", even in English, is different. It sounds like an "Hai!". It gets out of the HARA (guts, belly button, body energy source, KIAI`s source!), just like "hai", it`s short, firm, finished with Zanshin. I listen and enjoy the disposition of the young employee of the hotel counter, with his suit a little too big for him, greeting the foreigner: "Yesss!", "Yesss!", while Sensei checks us in speaking in nihongo, to a clumsy employee. Everyone is very fast and attentive as always, but there were four tickets for breakfast.

The breakfast in Japan is a celebration, with rice, fish, missoshiro, pickles, salad, natô, eggs and bacon (as a gift due to the foreigners), seaweed, tofu, and sometimes there is seafood pudding, a success.
