About Japanese culture that appeared in this Chapter

  • Kappa

Kappas are explained in detail in chapter14 and chapter15.
Cucumber and Sumo are often said as Kappa's favorite things.

Kappa is originally said to be a water god,
And the origin of sumo wrestling is an event for God.
So Kappa is said to love sumo wrestling.
In fact, there is a legend throughout Japan that Kappa has made a sumo with people.

There is a story that people are giving cucumbers to the god of water as to why Kappa likes cucumbers, But with regard to cucumber there is not much definitive basis.

However now in Japan, cucumber sushi is called "Kappa-maki(maki=roll)"

Furthermore, there is also a store called "Kappa Sushi" in a famous sushi chain store in Japan.
Kappa and Cucumber are definitely a major combination that is always associated

  • Tako

I will omit the talk about the origin of the Tako because it will be very long😅

It is a very popular play during the Edo period(My manga era)
Tako are framed with bamboo etc and coated with "washi"
Washi is the paper I use for my manga.
It is a unique paper with a history of over 1300 years.

Tako back to the topic, it will fly and compete for height and distance.
It was also an event to pray for health in the New Year, but it is one of the fun play for children
