Yuraku was the first philatelic publication in Japan. Meguro Kimura edited the inaugural edition, which was published in Tokyo on July 16, 1914. It was the Yurakukai's organ (Philatelic Society of Japan). The journal was issued monthly.
Yoraku means "monthly" in Japanese. The name was chosen to match that of Meguro Kimura's other publication, Yoraku Shinbun, a daily newspaper founded in 1908. The two publications shared offices and staff until their separation in 1916. Yoraku Shinbun remained the leading Japanese-language newspaper throughout World War I. It was one of the first newspapers in Japan to use photographs and cartoons.
After the war, Meguro Kimura started another newpaper called Nippon Journal. This paper had more serious articles about government policies and events than his other publications. It lasted from 1920 to 1942 when it was merged with another newspaper to form the Asahi Shimbun, the most popular newspaper in Japan today.
Meguro Kimura was one of the first Japanese journalists to report news overseas. He covered the United States for several years during the 1930s and reported on political conventions, sports events, and other topics of interest to readers back home. His reports were often quoted or cited by other journalists who wrote about Japan later that decade.
1. Krakatau: a tiny volcanic island in Indonesia between Java and Sumatra that saw the most destructive eruption in recorded history in 1883. The volcano's name is derived from Kalakala, a local language spoken on the island of Java where it caused devastation every time it erupted.
2. Krakatoa: another name for the same island.
3. Krahkanua: a name used by Native Americans for the island.

The name "Ame no Murakumo" is derived from the legendary Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi sword of Japanese folklore. It was once known as Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi (Tian Cong Yun Jian). The word "Kusanagi" means "moon blade" and "Tsurugi" means "nine tails". Combined, they mean "moon blade that cuts through nine layers of armor".
This sword is said to have been owned by a goddess who took human form in order to protect people. This goddess was called "Amaterasu" after her tribe. She is considered one of the eight mighty gods of Japan.
In anime, manga, and video games, Murakumo usually serves as a weapon wielded by characters who are based on myths or legends. It has also been used in fictional stories where other swords are preferred. The character with the sword often plays an important role in the narrative.
There are many versions of how Murumuru came into existence. According to one version, a samurai named Kurokawa Hideyoshi wanted to create a sword that could never be defeated so he ordered his sword maker to craft him a tool that would always win. The sword maker agreed, but instead of making just one sword, he made three very powerful ones. Then he gave one of the swords to Hideyoshi as a gift.
Bunraku (Wen Le), also known as Ningyo joruri (Ren Xing Jing Liu Li), is a type of traditional Japanese puppet theater that originated in Osaka in the early 17th century. The combination of chanting and shamisen playing is known as joruri, while ningyo is the Japanese term for puppet (or doll in general). It's utilized in a lot of plays. A bunraku stage is quite large; it can be as long as 80 feet and have a backdrop that may be changed during performances.
In contrast to modern American puppetry, where all movements are performed by one person using rods attached to the puppet's body or limbs, bunraku requires at least three people to perform on stage: a director who guides the action by moving a stick called a bunriki, a performer who acts out the story with the help of several other puppeteers, and a musician who plays music for the actors.
There are many different types of bunraku, but they all share certain common elements: the acting out of scenes between characters, the use of phonetic scripts called kabuki syllabary for speaking words, and the representation of objects on stage. In fact, bunraku can be considered a form of cross-cultural drama because it uses costumes, props, and settings from various cultures around the world (e.g., Japan, China, Europe) to tell a single story.
Bunraku is not only used for entertainment purposes but also for educational purposes.

One day they went to check out a Gafun that had invaded a nightclub but they weren't prepared for what happened next...
It has a 'lucky (or excellent) origin' and is predominantly found in west-central Japan and the island of Okinawa. The term 'yoshimoto' was originally used to refer to a famous Japanese poet whose birth name was Yoshimasa. He wrote more than 100 poems and is considered one of the most important poets in Japanese history.
Nowadays, the term is used to refer to someone who is very lucky or excellent at something fortunate or unexpected happening. For example, when you win the lottery, it is called "having a yoshimoto prize". There are many variations of this phrase in use all over Japan.
Also, when you get an excellently done job on your house, it is called a "yoshimoto experience".
And finally, yoshimoto cuisine is a unique form of food culture that evolved on the islands of Japan where farmers grow a variety of vegetables and fruits that do not exist elsewhere in the world. These foods have inspired chefs to come up with creative recipes that use them exclusively or as a main ingredient.
