ICOKA

080429ICOKA

I'm collecting 'platypus goods'.
A platypus is not popular, so it's hard to find platypus goods.
The mascot character of JR WEST is a platypus.
He is really cute and I like him.

JR WEST is going to sell his goods.
I must buy them.

Luckily, their products are less than ten.
I can buy all of them if I want.
I will show you if I buy them.
By the way, do you know why JR WEST chose a platypus?
I don't know.
Please let me know if you knew the reason.

DRY CLEANING

(2008-04-28)
080428DRYCLEANING

The Golden Week is going to start.
What do you have any plans?
I won’t go anywhere but I’m very busy.

While The Golden Week, I have to do a lot of things.
I have to go to museums.
I have to go to a movie theater
I have to go to Katsura-Rikyu again.

And I want to try ‘dry-cleaning’.
I haven’t done ‘dry-cleaning’ by myself before.
According to Yoshiko, dry-cleaning isn’t too difficult and it is cheaper.
I always have clothes, which need dry-cleaning, professionally dry-cleaned.
And I always have to spend about 5000 to 10000yen.
It’s very expensive.
And the average price of my clothes is about 5000yen.
If my clothes are more expensive, it is OK to bring them to a dry-cleaning shop.
But my clothes aren’t valuable…

Yesterday, I bought a bottle of detergent for dry-cleaning.
Luckily, the weather of The Golden Week might be fine.
I want to try and enjoy ‘dry-cleaning’.


KIKUJYUDOU

080426KIKUJYUDOU1

There is a traditional Japanese sweets shop in Kitahama.
I always pass that shop and I always think I want to eat Zenzai there.
But that shop has closed when I go home.
A few days ago, I ate Zenzai finally.

There were three tables.
The interior wasn’t special. It seemed a storage.
A lady has been eating zenzai.
I love zenzai, so I also ordered zenzai.

It seemed really delicious.

But the taste wasn’t good. Because it wasn’t sweet.
Why sweets are called ‘sweets’? It’s because they are sweet.
It means ‘not-sweet sweets’ aren't sweets.

I was disappointed.
I didn’t eat manju there, and their speciality is manju.
But one manju is 300yen.
Do you know if it is worth eating?

KANAZAWA -9-

(2008-04-24)
080424

Afterwards, we went back to Kanazawa Station. Before we arrived, we stopped at a café.
Fu store, Fumuroya, owns that cafe.
It seems really strange, because Fu is typical Japanese food but the café has European taste.
I ate Cherry blossom taste cake. It was very delicious. It was a little salty but sweet.
I want to eat it one more time.

We bought several souvenirs at Kanazawa Station.
I think you can buy any souvenirs at Kanazawa Station.
The Japanese sweets of Kanazawa are very beautiful. I couldn’t decide what I would buy soon.

The return trip was a little heard because of heavy traffic.
When I got back to my apartment I got really tired…

END..

After dinner we had a rest.
Yoshiko drank too much, so she slept earlier.
Nori-chan and I went to the bath again.
Night bath was comfortable, too.

On the 15th...

KANAZAWA -7- DINNER

(2008-04-20)
The dinner was OK.
But lately, I don’t know what the delicious food is.
The dinner in Takitei was beautiful. The taste was a little salty but it was OK.
But the all dishes were simple and I couldn’t see any idea in those dishes.

KANAZAWA -6-

(2008-04-19)
080419TAKITEI
We went to a bath before dinner.
It was hot springs but I couldn’t feel it.
The water had no color and no smell.
The view from the bath was NOT so good.
I couldn’t see the waterfalls, and there was a cherry tree but it was early for bloom.

You probably think ‘the bath wasn’t good.’
Your expectation is wrong.
The bath was really nice.
The temperature of the water was not so high and not so low.
The bathtubs were big enough.
And of course, it was very clean.
I had to leave early because of dinner, but I wanted to stay there longer.


KANAZAWA -5-

(2008-04-16)
080416TEA
The hotel, Takitei, was about 20mintes by bus from the 21st museum.

The bus went up a slope. The view was getting to change minute by minute.
And the fee was getting higher and higher.
I thought the people who lived in here needed lots of transport fee.

A man of Takitei was waiting for us at the bus stop.
He picked us up and brought to the hotel.

The hotel was located in a field and we could see small waterfalls behind the hotel.
That’s why the hotel was Takitei.

The entrance was clean. They served a bowl of tea as soon as we arrived.

The room which we stayed was kind of old, but I think it was OK.
Because the hotel we had stayed at Yonago was terrible.
I cannot compare these hotels, because there is a big difference.


KANAZAWA -4-

(2008-04-15)
Sorry.. You probably forgot about my trip...

08041521世紀美術館1


The 21st museum is the latest sightseeing spot.
Many T.V. shows introduce this museum.

The design of construction is modern.
You can touch some exhibits and play with the exhibits.
It’s not only the museum but also amusement park.
I have already seen it on TV several times, so I didn’t feel it was the first time.
It has a free zone, so you can enjoy this museum for free.

Of course, we paid and went inside.

But it was boring.
I can’t understand modern art, and all of them were modern arts.
There was nothing I wanted to see.
We just looked at the construction.
The entrance fee was 350 yen, but if it was higher, I would be angry.

Anyway, seeing the 21st museum was one of the purposes of our trip, so I was satisfied.

HOKKAIDO FAIR , AGAIN

(2008-04-14)
080414MISO PUDDING

I went to Hokkaido Fair again.

This time it has been held at the Daimaru Department Store in Osaka.

I wanted to eat ramen as usual.

I was there at 10:00A.M.
The ramen shop would open at 10:30A.M., so I looked around the floor before open.

While I looked at there, many shops gave me some foods.
I felt full before eating lunch.

Anyway, I ate ramen at Daidaiya from Asahikawa.
They had salt, soy sauce and miso taste ramen.
I asked their specialty.
I thought their specialty was salt soup ramen because I saw it on a fryer.

But the lady said their specialty was miso ramen.
I felt something strange but I ordered miso ramen anyway.

It seemed heavy but the taste was simple.
I think the taste has less something.

By the way, today’s topic is NOT about ramen.
I want to write about Pudding Jam.

I found it before lunch.
They sold many kinds of puddings.
I love pudding but I’ve never seen 'pudding jam'.
They had two pudding jams. One is miso and the other one is caramel taste.

First I tried the caramel pudding jam, but I felt something wrong.

I bought the miso pudding jam.
You probably cannot expect its taste like.
I can’t explain well but I cannot feel much miso taste and the miso makes it mild.
I want to enjoy this jam at late breakfast.


PENMANSHIP

(2008-04-13)
OTEHON


This is the book for practicing penmanship.
I asked my Chinese teacher if she knew this kind of book.
She told her mother to buy it.
She showed me it at the last lesson.
It was the one which I really wanted.
Now, I look at this book and practice every morning.
It is really helpful.
Only one bad thing is that I cannot read Chinese characters.
So, I have to look at a dictionary before I write.
I am always really busy…

Anyway, I want to say thank you to my English teacher and her mother.


MORIGUCHI TO TEMMA

(2008-04-12)
I walked from the Moriguchi Station to the Temmabashi Station today.

One of my friends asked me to come to a walking.
She said she and her co-workers had been hiking every month.
This time they would walk in a town and it wouldn't be hard, so she asked me to join it.

I like walking, so I decided to try it.

The trail wasn’t hard for me. We walked along the Yodo River.
We started at 9:30 and arrived at Temmabashi around 2:30.

I couldn’t be satisfied.
I feel I can walk more than 10 kilometers.
But I could take beautiful pictures.
Please look at them.

MEETING

(2008-04-10)
Kiyomi and I had a meeting last week.
As I said we had been to see cherry blossom, and the meeting was about the cherry blossom party.

I said ‘the meeting’, but it wasn’t a meeting. It was a drinking party…
We ordered some lunch boxes at the Keihan Department Store just after we met, and we went to eat dinner soon.

We went to an Indian restaurant. Lately, I am really interested in ethnic food.
We ordered dinner course. It was for 5500yen per two-person.

All of them weren’t so spicy. I really like them.
My favorite one is ‘Chef special Nan’.
There was something between Nan and Nan.
I think it was pumpkin but I am not sure.
It was spicy and sweet.
I wanted to eat more Tandoori chicken because it was too small…
We could eat three kinds of curries; chicken, vegetable and seafood.
The dessert, mango ice cream, was good, too.

I was really satisfied but I don’t know if Kiyomi liked it or not.
A man, I think he is probably American or Canadian, ate dinner, too.
He talked to the cook in English.
It means the cook can speak English, Japanese and Indian.
It was amazing.

I want to go there one more time.
But when I go there next time, I want to eat smaller dinner.
My stomach was too full…

KUIDAORE TARO

(2008-04-09)
KUIDAORE TARO


Kuidaore closes in July.

Kuidaore Taro is the most famous doll in Japan
but I’ve never seen someone who took meal at Kuidaore.
I think that’s why it is going to close.

For me, I went there with Kiyomi a few years ago.
I hadn't thought that they had delicious food.
The reason we chose Kuidaore was that we wanted to do something Osaka like.

We ate Udon.
I was surprised because the food was tastier than I thought.

They have a large variety of menus,
so if you have many children, Kuidaore may be good to go to.

Anyway, I have to take Kuidaou Tarou before he leaves.


菊ちゃん

(2008-04-08)
I met my old friend, Kiku-chan, last night.

Last time I met him is more than 15 years ago.

We used to work at the same section, and often go out for drink.

He moved to the sales department afterwards.
And he moved to the factory in Hokkaido about 8 years ago.

He transferred again. Now he is working at the Okayama office.

We drank at Yakitori restaurant close to Yodoyabashi.
He has been getting bigger, but he was Kiku-chan that I knew.

His mother has already passed away.
According to him, when he calls his father, he is always crying..

I appreciate that my father never cries.
If my father is crying often, I don’t want to call my father.

Yakitori was OK. I always love chicken.
I drank a few glasses of Chu-high.

I feel my body is full of Chu-high.



HOKKAIDO FAIR

(2008-04-07)
I went to Hokkaido Fair at Keihan Department Store.
I wanted to eat ramen, and if they had fresh seafood, I wanted to buy them.

When I got there, I was too hungry.
It was before 6:00P.M., though.

I ate ramen soon. The soup was made of salt and pig.
It wasn’t too salty or thick.
It means the taste was OK.

After I ate it, I looked around the floor.
And I found the one I always looked for.

It is Sanma Donburi.
I can eat just to boil the pack of sanma.

The last time when I saw it was about 3 or 4 years ago at Hokkaidou Fair at the Hankyu Department store.
It was convenient and delicious, so I always thought that I wanted to eat one more time.

Since then, I looked for it, but I have never seen it.

This time, I bought two packs.

By the way, you can taste some wine.
I tried one of them. It was blue berry wine. It was sweet and tasty.
I wanted to buy it, but one bottle was too big for me.

There are many curious foods at the Fair.
I desire the next fair.


THE HANAMI PARTY

(2008-04-05)
080405HANAMI

My ex-co-workers and I went to see cherry blossom today.
It was a really fine day and it was good for the hanami party..

Kiyomi and I bought some food and lunch boxes at Keihan Department Store in Hirakata and went to the Hirakata Park.

Some of them had already gone into the park and looked for the space for hanami.
There were so many people in Hirakata Park.
I have never seen such many people in Hirakata Park.

Many groups had the parties under the cherry trees.
Of course, we did.

Kiyomi had cooked fried chicken and rolled egg.
I didn’t need anything except the chicken and the egg.

Most of my ex-co-workers had already been retired.
So their topic is always about national insurance.
I don’t know how many cans of beers they drank.
Some of them couldn’t walk well in the end.


It started before 11:00A.M. and it ended around 5:00P.M.
I was just sitting under the cherry tree but I got tired.

The hanami party is our yearly event.
We already decided when we would have the hanami party next time.

KANAZAWA -3-

080328SWEETS

We went to 21st museum.
But before that, we had to go to have sweets.

We got a free paper of Kanazawa town, looked at it and decided to eat Japanese sweets.
The Japanese café was close to 21st century museum.
Eating sweets is one of the most important parts of trip.

I ate zenzai.
You probably think it was too small.
I thought the same thing.
But it was bigger than I thought.
I was satisfied its volume but I couldn’t be satisfied its taste.
It wasn’t enough sweet. I wanted to eat too, too sweet zenzai.

Anyway, the atmosphere of the café was really nice. It was comfortable.



SANMANMA

(2008-04-04)
SANMANMA

Hokkaido Fair comes again.
I’m so excided.

The flier was delivered today.
I can see lots of curious food.
Seafood seems fresh and delicious…
What I want to eat is ‘Sanmanma’.
I can expect its taste. It’s probably a little sweet and smelled the grilled sanma.

Of course, I can see many sweets.
I want to have several stomachs.

Unfortunately, I have no chance to go to.
Next week is really busy, so if I go there, I have to go to on Sunday.
Of course, I will go on Sunday, but I can eat only one food.
I probably eat ramen, so I cannot eat the other foods.

I really need an extra stomach…


KANAZAWA -2-

080328KANAZAWA CASTLE

We went to Kenrokuen, afterward by bus.
Luckily, when we waited for a bus, one-coin bus was coming.
It runs slow but is cheap.

080328KENROKUEN1


Kenrokuen was brown color.
It was too early for cherry blossom.
It was too late for snow season.

Only we could see plums. They were really cute.

Kenrokuen is a big garden.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t see any flowers, but we could see old trees.
Their shapes were amazing.
I could feel the long history of those trees.
