THE BREAKUP PARTY

(2007-07-31)
My department is going to break up. Who’d have ever expected it would happen?
My department disappears. I will stay at the same kind of department but some colleagues move a new department. But the office is the same, so I can always see them.

モア・サンクさん その4 やっと終わりです

(2007-07-30)
By the way, Moi-san’s husband has 5 cafes in Kyoto. I visited two of them, and those are really like Moi-san. They are natural taste cafes.

Moi-san’s husband brought us to one of them by his car afterwards. They said they had good coffee. Yoshiko and I had visited there twice, but it was the first time for Nori-chan. They have several kinds of coffee. I didn’t know which one was good for me, so I chose the one which seemed normal. It was good, but it was too much for me.

He drove us to Sanjyo Station.
We had to eat a cake, but my stomach was full of coffee. Yoshiko wanted to buy some sweet, so we went to Takashimaya Department Store.
She bought some Japanese sweets for her family.


Yoshiko knew a good café close to Karasuma(ru) station, so we walked a little. Street of Kyoto is always crowded. And of course it was crowded.
The cafe was really nice and they hade cakes they looked delicious. But my stomach was full of coffee.

Next time we will visit Moa-san is maybe 5 or 6 month later. I have to save money until then.

After we ate there, we went toward Moi Cinq. First we went to Nanzenji and walked along Tetsugakuno-michi.

When we go to Moi Cinq, we usually get off at the bus stop close to Ginkakuji. But this time, we didn't walk the usual way.

We arrived at close to Moi Cinq, but we lost a way. Yoshiko and I thought we were almost there, but we couldn’t find Moi Cinq.

We walked around for about 15 minutes and finally we found it.

Yoshiko and I go to Moi Cinq a couple of times a year. Moi Cinq is a boutique near Ginkakuji. My acquaintance designs, sews and sells clothes.
Last weekend we visited there. This time Nori-chan came with us.

TOKYO DISNEYLAND -7- FINAL

(2007-07-24)
なぜかスミー

We went to draw a picture. That was the last attraction for us. We drew Tinkerbelle but we couldn’t draw well. This was the third picture for us. The first one was Mickey and the second one was Stich. Tinkerbell was the most difficult. I thought I had to train before I drew her.

It was around 6:30P.M. Shinkansen had run but the wind was still strong. We bought reserved seat at Maihama Sation and went home.

Recently, we don’t get on many attractions. But this time, we got a lot. They weren’t crowded because of typhoon. We thought it wasn’t bad that typhoon is coming.

We went to Buss afterwards. It is like a shooting game. Tsuru-chan and I are not good gunmen. Our scores are always lower level. But this attraction is exciting.

We went to Western Land. Western Land is our hometown. We don’t usually move from here, so this visit was unusual for us.

We got on Western River Railroad, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and saw Country Bear Jamboree there. This is our special course. We usually go to Pirate of Caribbean, but it was just a construction of renewal.

We ate lunch at Alice restaurant. While we canoe, it was raining harder, so I was like taking a shower. A waitress asked me if I was OK.
We ate grilled chicken. It was really good, but I couldn’t eat all of them. Recently my stomach became small.
In the U.S., waiters/waitresses always ask if I want to take them out. But in Japan, they don’t ask me. I wanted to bring back them to my home.

Finally, we canoed. The canoe was a little crowded but we could canoe soon.
Our canoe moved very smooth. We arrived at a goal soon. I felt a little disappointed.

Tsuru-chan was complaining afterward.
There was a family in front of us. They were a father, a mother and a kid. The mother and the kid had seat at the same row, and the father sat behind them.

There was no one in front of me, but the father sat in front of Tsuru-chan and the kid sat in front of the father. She had expected that it would be terrible. The kids can’t canoe well and they sometimes disarray the pace. As Tsuru-chan’s expectation, the kids couldn’t canoe well. His father rowed his son’s pace. If Tsuru-chan rowed his pace, her paddle would hit someone behind her, and if Tsuru-chan rowed the right pace, the paddle would hit the father’s paddle.
Tsuru-chan said it had been irritated.

Next, we went to ‘Canoe’. I can’t go home before we canoe. But the typhoon was coming. I didn’t think we could canoe.
Before we got there, we passed Splash Mountain. It didn’t seem crowded, so we decided to go to Splash Mountain. We could ride soon. And we could see the canoe. My heart was already with canoe.

By the way, my seat was the third row of the ride of Splash Mountain. I didn’t think I soaked. But I got wet like ‘rain bucket’. It’s because front rows were children. They didn't protect me from the splash. I’ve never gotten wet like this before..

ミニーちゃんの家

We went toward ‘It’s a small world”. Before we get there, we stopped at Toontown and visited Minnie’s house. We took a few pictures and left there.

We went to ‘It’s a small world’, ‘Mickey Mouse Review’ and ‘Haunted Mansion’. ‘Mickey Mouse Review’ is one of my favorite attractions. Disney characters play Disney music. They are just dolls but very cute.

Haunted Mansion is my favorite, too. I always admire the technology. I never get tired of it.

I went to Tokyo Disneyland on July 15th. We were already in Tokyo, and when we woke up in the morning, Shinkansen had already stopped because of typhoon. If it didn’t stop, we had to consider if we would go back to Osaka. But we had no choice.

We went back to Katsura station.
That last plan of that day was to go to a cafe.
Youshiko wanted to go to Au Grenier D’or. It was close to Nishiki shopping arcade. According to Yoshiko, that cafe is always crowded and many people are waiting.But when we visited there, it wasn’t crowded. I think it's because it was a weekday. We choose a cake and waited for a few minutes. Our seats were lady soon, but it was with other guys. I ordered a cream puff. I wanted to eat a typical cake, as strawberry cake, but they didn't have that stuff.
The cream puff wasn't bad. But I didn't think it was worth eating waiting.

We left there as soon as we finished.

Only the last part was pitiful, but that day was one of the most wonderfull days in my life.

Geppa-rou was the last house on our tour. When I stay there, I felt I was a woman who lived in Edo period. I imaged that I wrote a poem while I was looking at the moon.
When I left there, I felt sad. It was the same feeling as the end of the trip.

We bought books and a souvenir. Other visitors left soon, but I wanted to stay longer. The next tour's visitors were waiting at the waiting room. I wanted to follow them.

AMANO-HASHIDATE SU-YAMA

After you left Soto-koshikake, you can see full view of Katsura-rikyu.
There is Su-hama(seashore) and Amano-hashidate.
The little stones are spread on the lake and there is Tourou (a garden lantern) at the top of the little stones. This Tourou is used to resemble a lighthouse.

Soto Koshikake & Sotetsu-yama

This is a waiting room of tea ceremony at Shoukin-tei.
We stopped and heard the explanation there. You can see the Sotetsu-yama from here. It didn’t match with Japanese garden. Only this part seemed tropical garden.

We moved to Katsura. Katura is about 10 minutes by train from Shijyo-Kawaramachi. My heart was beating hard on the train. I was very excited. I would be able to see That Katsura-Rikyu soon.

We walked to Katura-Rikyu from Katura Station. We could find Katura-Rikyu soon. Yoshiko pointed out the forest and said it might be Katura-Rikyu. We arrived at Katura-Rikyu bus stop. But we had to walk more 10 minutes from there. The entrance was opposite side.

When I saw a menu, I didn’t think it was enough for me. It seemed too short. But it didn’t. it was enough for me.

I can’t explain well, so please look at the pictures and menu.
They used seasonal food; 鱧(Common Japanese conger), eggplant, ginger. And they cooked some food seasoned with citrus fruit. They gave us the summer taste.
Also, those foods were pleasured to the eyes. They seemed not only delicious but also refreshing.

Guji is a kind of porgy. Nakamuraya is famous for this Guji. First, we ate only fish meat and left a fish skin. After that, a soup was poured into a soup bawl with the fish skin. This Guji was a bit salty. I felt I need rice.

The dessert was also good. I felt early summer from this menu.
