Travelers' Night @ 旅 Café & Dining おでかけ日和, Kyoto (#47)


Text by Misako Ozawa

 Raincouver? 420? The Bun Festival? Do any of these sound familiar to you?
Sightseeing is not only about saying cheese in front of too famous and touristy places, nor spending your money in duty-free shops. It’s time to immerse yourself in a new world, to feel the heartbeat of people’s lives; what they eat, see, and do. It is to discover yourself actually!


 This happy Friday night gathered all travelers together for their next off-the-beaten adventures and let our beloved friends Sandra and Carrie speak for their own hometowns, Vancouver and Hong Kong. You might say you have been to those places and you don’t really need to hear about what they have. You are right and wrong, as I myself found so many new interesting 
stories and subcultures which I didn’t see while I was there!


Did you know that Vancouver has a record of 28 consecutive rainy days? Did you know that Marijuana (otherwise known as weed, pot, etc) is ILLEGALLY but OPENLY consumed on the street that even the local police is helpful to get organized a crazy and huge Marijuana festival in order on April 20th? Or, how about the Bun Festival on a small and long island named Cheung Chau Island (長洲島) in Hong Kong, where people race for nothing but buns by climbing up the buns-made tower?



You will certainly have to stop me from telling you those unique yet very fascinating secrets, as these are only a few and there’s more and more to follow! So, if you missed out on this great opportunity this Friday night, why don’t you just join us for the next and maybe you can also share secrets of your hometown!

If you are tired of the usual traveling information found on usual guidebooks and official tourism websites, and you want to have some unusual traveling experiences despite going to some usual destinations, Travelers’ Night will bring you to some unbeaten tracks guided by people who have been there and done that.



通常のガイドブックや公式観光サイトのありふれたトラベル情報にも飽き飽き、ありきたりの旅とは一味違った旅行経験がしてみたいと思う時に、トラベラーズナイトは皆さんを実際そこに行って珍しい体験をした人達の案内でまだ踏み入れたことのない道へとお連れします。





To kickoff the first Travelers’ Night, We Are One organizers, Sandra and Carrie will be sharing with you something about their home cities, Vancouver + Hong Kong.
Listen to what they have to say about these two cities at two sides of the globe. Find out how you can witness the world’s biggest trading place for something controversial and illegal in Canada and where you can discover the natural and traditional sights of Hong Kong at its many off-shore islands which are only a stone throw away from its densely built-up city.


第1回トラベラーズナイトでは、We are Oneの主催者、SandraとCarrieがそれぞれの故郷、バンクーバーと香港について語る予定です。 彼女たちが話さなければならないこれら2つの都市の世界の表と裏に耳を傾けましょう。 世界最大の違法薬物の売買取引が行われているカナダの都市をどれだけ目の当たりにできるか、また建物が密集する都市から目と鼻の先にあるたくさんの沖合いの島のどこで自然かつ伝統的な名所を発見できるか突き止めてみましょう。



As the secrets of these two cities unfold before you, enjoy a dinner provided by Odakakebiwari Café & Dining accompanied with dessert and tea. Be ready to meet like minded people and you may find your next traveling partners heading off to these exotic destinations.


皆さんの前で繰り広げられるバンクーバーと香港の裏話を聞きながら、おでかけ日和カフェ&ダイニングが提供するデーザートとお茶付きのディナーを楽しみましょう。 気の合う人達に出会う準備をしましょう。 このようなエキゾチックな都市を次回一緒に旅する旅行仲間が見つかるかもしれません。
