let me introduce our EC member, Naho!

Hi everyone, let me introduce our EC member, Naho!




This lovely woman came to Canada by herself when she was 16. She went to high school in Surrey and graduated high school in North Vancouver. After that, she went back to Tokyo and spent 1 year at Aoyama Gakuin Woman’s College. She got 1st place at a Speech contest as well. Since she likes communicating and interacting with people, she decided to come back to Vancouver to study, “Hospitality Management”. Now, she is working at YVR airport and Enjoy Canada Agency as our social media developer and visa documents assistant.

Naho is a very communicative person and her personality is also very cool! She is a kind, smart and funny person yet super beautiful!

Also, she is great at drawing and dancing, last time, EC’s manager, Akiko and Mariko went to see her show case!

To those whom are Naho’s fans and missed that special show, we would like to share with you her sexy dance!
She also, organizes and participates some fun events/seminars at EC.

If you want to know how to improve your English or need assistance with visas and institution applications or are interested in studying, “Hospitality Management”, she is the right person to ask!

Get some counselling from her 🙂

Tim Hortons is not the most popular coffee shop anymore?

Tim Hortons is not the most popular coffee shop anymore?


Canada has a large number of coffee shops so, where do you buy coffee? I remember, when I came to Canada for the first time, many people asked me, “Are you Starbucks lover or Tim Hortons lover?” so I thought Starbucks and Tim Hortons were the popular ones in Canada. Guess which coffee shop is the most popular?

According to Maclean’s Coffee Ranking, Macdonald’s coffee beats both Tim Hortons and Starbucks.

The complete results are below:

  1. Macdonald’s
  2. Second Cup
  3. Starbucks
  4. Tim Hortons
  5. Van Houtte/A&W

「コーヒーショップ」と聞いたらどのコーヒーショップチェーンを思い浮かべますか?ほとんどの方がスターバックスかティムホートンと答えるのではないでしょうか。2017年10月のMaclean’s Coffee Rankingsによると、なんとマクドナルドが1位に!

1位マクドナルド、2位セカンドカップ、3位スターバックス、4位ティムホートン、5位Van HoutteとA&Wという結果になりました。

What is the Boxing day?

Boxing day




カナダの祝日「ボクシング・デー(Boxing Day)」はクリスマスの翌日、12月26日に教会が貧しい人たちのために寄付を募ったクリスマスプレゼントの箱(box)を開ける日であったことから、そう呼ばれています。カナダだけでなく、オーストラリア、イギリス、香港、イリス、ニュージーランドなどでも祝日になっています。

中世の時代、屋敷の使用人たちはクリスマスデーも働かねばならず、暇をもらえるのがクリスマスデー後の平日でした。そして使用人たちは屋敷の主人から “Christmas Box” と呼ばれるお金や贈り物が入った箱をもらって、家族が待つ家に帰ったということから “Boxing Day” と呼ばれるようになりました(Wikipedia)”Boxing” はスポーツのボクシングではなく、「箱」の “box” から来ています。

そんな “Boxing Day” は現在ではどんな日なのかと言うと、Black Fridayと同じように「バーゲンの日」なんです。イギリス、カナダ、オーストラリア、そしてニュージーランドでも「ボクシングデー」といえば、多くの小売店が一斉にバーゲンセールを開催し、一年のうちで一番安くなる日として知られています。


Have you heard of, “Boxing day” before? If not, you may think it’s a sport but it is actually not related to sports at all.

Boxing Day is an event celebrated the day after Christmas Day in UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand…etc. It was started in the UK about 800 years ago, during the Middle Ages. It was the day when the alms box, collection boxes for the poor often kept in churches, were traditionally opened so that the contents could be distributed to poor people. Some churches still open these boxes on Boxing Day. Therefore, “boxing day” comes from “box”.

In Canada, as well as the U.K. and Australia, December 26 is now better known as a day for scooping up shopping deals, similar to Black Friday in the U.S. Most stores open their doors early and discount prices on items ranging from clothing to technology to appliances.

Where can I try bouldering?

Where can I try bouldering?

Have you ever tried bouldering before?


Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. Leaving behind ropes and harnesses and just using climbing shoes and a bag of chalk over safety mats, your challenge is to climb short but tricky bouldering “problems” (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength, and your brain. You don’t need experience or lots of expensive kit to have a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before.

Safety in Vancouver

【Vancouver 治安】





As you might already know, Canada is always ranked as one of “the best countries to live in” and known as a safe country. There are warm-hearted and friendly people, always “things” to do and beautiful nature. However, there are some areas where I cannot recommend you to go.


①Chinatown (Hastings St.)


お昼の時間帯は観光客で賑わっており問題ありませんが、夜に歩くのは避けるべき場所です。また、チャイナタウンの北の方のHastings Stは特に、ホームレスの方が集まっているので要注意です。


There are lots of tourists when the sun is still out, so you do not have to worry but you should avoid walking around there at night especially Hastings St. There are so many homeless and alcohol/drug addicted people.




②Granville Street


Nightclubs and adult stores are located in this area, and there are also some homeless people, and I often see drunk people around there. It is not as dangerous as Hastings st, but I would not recommend to walk alone there at night.




Vancouver is such a safe city, but you should be aware of those areas to protect yourselfJ
