Valentine's Day Event

Hello, this is RYOTA.

February 14 is Valentine's Day. In Japan, it is common for women to give chocolates to men, but in the rest of the world, it is more common for men to give flowers and other gifts to women.

In Japan, there is no culture of giving bouquets of flowers from men to women. At least, I have never given a bouquet of flowers to a Japanese woman. Oh, I have given one to my mother on Mother's Day.

I think Japan is a country where expressions of affection for lovers are far less common than in other countries. In English, there are many different ways to call your partner "baby" or "honey," but in Japan, such words are never used between lovers. For me, it is normal, but for foreign women, it may seem boring lol

Well, I would like to announce a Valentine's Day event.

On Friday, February 3, from 9pm to 11pm Singapore time, I will be doing a Valentine's Day themed live-streaming event at LUMINE Singapore. I would like to talk about my personal Valentine's Day memories and what kind of gifts I would like to receive. To make the content more interesting, I will be making hand-rolled sushi (I originally planned to make takoyaki, but had to cancel it because of the smoke. Sorry to those who were looking forward to it!) The live stream will be on my TikTok account.

  • Hi Ryota, thank you first of all for sharing your brief experience and Japan culture on Valentine’s Day. It’s an ear-listening or eye-opening to know. Log forward to join your Live on VD when I have time. Takoyaki is my favourite but sushi is my no.1!
