THE READING MONTH

(2010-06-30)
The reading month started.

I don’t know when this kind of event started, but any publishers have held the ‘reading month event’ in every summer.

Those publishers announce 100 books which they recommend.
And if readers buy some books of them, they will give us a present.

The most popular one is a book jacket.
I have already had many book jackets but I still want to collect book jackets.

However, there is no book jacket for the present this year.

Shincho’s present is a bandana and Kadokawa’s present is a strap of cell phone.
This year Kodansha started the same kind of event, and their present is a bag.

I was disappointed.
Especially Kadokawa.
I have many book jackets of Kadokawa, Snoopy, Kitaro, Keroro, Gandum, Evangelion, Schreck ect.
And those book jackets are eyes of each year’s current.

I am not sure if I will buy books of Kadokawa…
Anyhow, I am sure I will buy two books of Shincho. I have already decided what I would buy!!

四谷怪談

(2010-06-28)
I went to see ‘Yotsuya Kaidan’.
Yotsuya Kaidan is the most popular Japanese horror and anybody knows this story.

My image of Yotsuya Kaidan is ‘Warau Iemon’ written by Kyogoku Ntatsuhiko.
It was a love story. I need lots of lines to explain this story, so I want to skip explaining about the story, but this story is the completely different from the original story.

The one that I went to see was storytelling.
The reader was Mr. Sasai Eisuke.
There are some instrumental and a dancer on the stage.

First of all Mr. Sasai Eisuke explained about this story. He told us the history of Yotsuya Kaidan and concept of this stage.

And then, he started reading.

Oisa-sama and Osode-sama are sisters.
One day, a guy killed their father and Osode-sama’s husband.
The guy who killed their father was Oiwa-sama’s husband, Iemon, and the guy who killed Osode-san’s husband was the guy who loved Osode-san.

A girl who loved Iemon wanted to marry him, and her father wanted to make her wish coming true.
He gave Oiwa-sama poison, and Oiwa-sama’s face became ugly.
Iemon said to Oiwa-sama he wanted a divorce, and he told a whole story.
And then he killed Oiwa-sama.

Ummm. I have no power to explain anymore.

Anyway, afterwards, Oiwa-sama still showed herself after she died.
She appeared several times in front of Iemon.
It was the most popular scene of Yotsuya Kaidan.

Before I saw this stage, I was worried if I couldn’t sleep at night.
But there was no problem about it.
It was a really pity story.
My favorite scene was the one which Osode-san thought about Oiwa-sama.
She found Oiwa-sama’s comb, and she thought about Oiwa-sama.
They weren’t the real sisters; there was no relationship between them; but Osode-sama always felt grateful Oiwa-sama.
So, when she found her comb, she was really worried about her.
I thought a sister was a very valuable person.

Mr. Sasai Eisuke acted really well.
He was set to play many characters, and his work was excellent.
I felt like I could see Oiwa-sama, Iemon and all of scenes.

I am happy because I could see the good stage.


SAGUN

(2010-06-24)

R0011165.jpg
I went to the Nepal restaurant, Sagun, with one of my friends, Momo-chan.
A few years ago, Momo-chan and I cleaned up a storehouse in a laboratory.
At that time, we were talking about European ceramics.
Both of us hadn't known the guy who liked European ceramics, so we became good friends.

In this half of year, she visited Borneo and planted trees, so I wanted to listen to her story.
R0011166.jpg

She visited many countries, so her talk was really interesting.

By the way, I want to introduce the restaurant, Sagun.
This is a Nepal restaurant.

In my image, all of the spicy foods are the same.
I don’t know this Nepal food is a traditional Nepal food, but it seemed the same as Indian food.
However, the flavor wasn’t too spicy. They were mild and easy to eat.

We ordered some foods. We didn’t know what they were.
We could see the photos of those foods but the photos were terrible.
R0011169.jpg

R0011170.jpg

On the menu card, this one seemed like a salad, but it was noodles.
And this one seemed like a something which made with wheat. But it was a grilled chicken.

R0011171.jpg

R0011173.jpg

R0011175.jpg
I want to take pictures for them.

Anyway, all foods were really good.
Especially this salad was excellent. It was a little sour, and you can smell sesame flavor.
And this Chai(spiced tea) is the best Chai I have ever drank.
The cooks are very polite and friendly, but they cannot speak Japanese well, so we couldn’t communicate well.

Anyway, if someone wants to go there with me, I definitely go there one more time.

Le Collier de la Reine

(2010-06-23)
I read "Le Collier de la Reine" written by Alexandre Dumas.
I don’t know the English title but if I translate directly, it means ‘The necklace of Queen’, and this Queen is Marie Antoinette.

This story is about fraud which a woman plotted.

She acted a big lie, and finally failed.

This is just a story.

However, it is a long story and the letters in the book are too small, so I need much time to read it.

The interesting thing for me is scenes of Paris in this book.
While I read page after page, I felt like I was in Paris.
I was one of the characters in this story, and I remembered about the trip to Paris.
I remembered La Seine, , and a stone path.
And I remembered that the jail cell of Marie Antoinette in La Conciergerie.
When I visited there, I felt like I got back to 18th Century.

This story was too long, but if you have been to Paris before, it might be very interesting for you.

This is today’s recommendation.
This is a ramen restaurant, but you don’t have to eat ramen.

Their Happy Time Menu is only 500yen include one glass of beer, four small pieces of fried chickens, and Hiyayakko(tofu) with Japanese apricot pickles.

The glass is a little smaller. But it is OK because it is 500yen menu.
I sometimes pass through this restaurant, but I don’t usually see this menu, so I think this is a brand new menu.

A CAFE IN FUKUCHIYAMA

(2010-06-21)
RIMG0018.jpg
We went to eat cakes after the lunch.
Tall Girl knew a good café but it was too far from the restaurant.
We drove about 30 minutes and arrived at Fukumura.

The café was surrounded by mountains.
I felt like I went to a trip.

It was a really cute café.
Many girls (and middle aged women) visited and ate cakes.
All of women love cakes.

The rate of Taberogu was bad, but I don’t think it was a bad café.
This is a cake which I ordered.
It was a tart.
The combination with cookie and fruits was not so good, but the dough of tart was crispy.
And their tea was good.
You know, it is very hard to find a café, which serves good tea.
Even they have good cakes.

But their tea was good and they use cute cup.
I like this café.

By the way, I listened to Tall Girl’s talk at this café, too.
She wanted to talk about her terrible co-worker, so I had to listen to her.

I’m not sure if she felt better.
Anyway, we had a really good time.

When I got back to Osaka, Tall Girl drove me Sasayama-guchi Station.
It was really far from the café. I felt sorry but I could see very curious things from the window. It was interesting.
RIMG0019.jpg

iGong to Fukuchiyama made me a little tired but gave me a good time.

グルメリア但馬

(2010-06-20)
RIMG0008.jpg
I went to meet my ex-co-worker, Tall Girl.
She lives in Ichijima in Hyogo.

The reason which I went to was that she wanted to complain about her co-worker, Iron Woman, and I know that co-worker, so I thought I had to listen to her talk.

I arrived at Ichijima Station about 11:30P.M.

Tall Girl drove me to a restaurant.
That is a beef restaurant.
I thought I didn’t want to eat Yakiniku(Korean barbeque) but they had many dishes.
RIMG0012.jpg

This is the one we ate.
This is a beef stew.
RIMG0015.jpg

The beef is tender. You don’t need your teeth. It melts in your mouth.
The flavor of the stew was plain.
I think anyone likes this flavor.

By the way, Tall Girl talked a lot.
But her talk wasn’t non-offensive, so I could enjoy talking to her.

The biggest surprising episode of Iron Woman was that she bought instant coffee for 100,000yen.
First, I couldn’t understand what her mean.

Tall Girl said that Iron Woman was a person who collected money at their office.
That money is used for sometimes buying instant coffee, sometimes cash contribution, and etc.

I don’t know why, but Iron Woman bought instant coffee for all of money which she collected.
Of course, there was no space where they kept those coffees.

In addition to this, according to Tall Girl, some instant coffee bags disappeared. Wow, it’s a miracle.

This is one of the stories that Tall Girl talked to me…

It’s really funny, isn’t it?


HITOKUCHI

(2010-06-19)
R0011053.jpg

My department held a welcome and farewell party last week.
The manager, Hotei-san, will retire soon, and the new manager will come to our office.

Hotei-san has been my boss before when I belonged to Research and Development department.
He is really …. Ummm…. it is really hard to explain about him but he is like a machine. I sometimes think I want to look inside his brain.
If you know him, you probably understand what I mean…

Anyway, I don’t dislike him.

The new manager is Micro Man.
If you are a hard reader of my blog, you should know him.

The restaurant is located close to our office.
It was an Oden restaurant but I ordered not only Oden but also other some dishes.
These are the pictures of dishes.
R0011088.jpg

R0011090.jpg

R0011093.jpg

R0011095.jpg

R0011113.jpg

R0011114.jpg


Do they seem good?
I am not sure they are good or not, but one of my co-worker said he wanted to go to the restaurant, so I think it was not so bad.
A good thing is that I could eat Ayu and Hamo.
Eating Ayu and Hamo in this early summer season, it is a big luxury.
And of course, I LOVE Ayu and Hamo.

Their Oden seemed really delicious but I couldn’t eat enough, so I want to eat more Oden next time.


Parties of our department always didn’t run high, but this time I think Micko Man changed an atmosphere.
But it wasn’t a big difference. Our party has done at 8:30P.M.

Afterwards, I went to eat cakes with one of my co-worker, and when I arrived at my apartment, it was the Cinderella time.

YOUKAI DATA BASE

(2010-06-17)
Do you believe Youkai?
And do you like Youkai?


Ancient Japanese people believed that many Youkai lived in Japan.

There were two types of Youkai.
One type of Youkai brought people happiness and the other type of Youkai brought people a harm.
.
People thought those Youkai created those mistrial things which people couldn’t control.

Now, Japan has been in a jubilant mood of Youkai stories.

There are many event of Youkai, and people gather and talk about Youkai.
Many Youkai books are published.

And one of the most famous Youkai towns is Sakai-Minato.
You can meet Youkai there.

According to Asahi Shinbun, Youkai database opened.
You can search names and pictures of Youkai.
It is very interesting.
Please visit this sight.

MY FIRST エステ

(2010-06-16)
Have you ever been to a beauty-treatment clinic before?

I haven’t!!!

One reason is that it is too expensive.
You have to pay for more than 10000yen each time.

Another reason is its effect.
I doubt it is worth to going.

That’s why I haven’t been to a beauty-treatment clinic.

However, I visited the beauty-treatment clinic a few days ago.
The reason was simple.
I had a free ticket!!!

The clinic is located close to the Moriguchi Station.
I thought I would be able to find it soon, but I couldn’t find it.

I called the clinic and asked its location.

I could find the building soon.

But the clinic wasn’t the one which I wanted to go to.

There are two clinics in the same building.

I was really surprised because there were too many beauty-treatment clinics in Japan.

There is nothing to say about their work.
They sprinkled many stuff on my face and rubbed.

Finally, they said you had to continue.

This is my first and the last experience. It is too expensive, but if it isn’t expensive, I won’t go to again either.


the Naruto Forest

(2010-06-15)
As I always say, I am a big fan of Naruto.
Naruto is a Japanese Manga.
I don’t think I have to give you information about it because I think no one doesn’t know Naruto.

Naruto lives in Konoha-gakure village. The village is surrounded by forest.

It is a beautiful world but Naruto and the characters of Naruto world sometimes destroy the forest.
I worry about it even if it is just in a Manga world.

This is a real world story.

Now, Shonen Jump, which is the magazine carries Naruto, tries to make the Naruto Forest in Yamanashi.
Shonen Jump is looking for the people who want to work with them.
If you approve this, you can get a tree in the Naruto Forest and a certification of the tree’s owner.

If you are interested in it, please crick the following address.

ORIX!!

(2010-06-14)
Orix Buffalos is a professional baseball team.
It was called ‘Hankyu Braves’ when I was a kid.
Afterwards, they repeated M&A, and now they are called Orix Buffalos.

I think they are the most non-attractve team in Japan.
I can’t see their games on TV, and also I cannot see their games on the TV news.
The number of the audiences is very low.
You can get there free tickets very easy.

However, when I was a kid, they were very strong.
I still remember when they won the first prize three years in a row.

But now……

My father is a big fan of them, but he is always angry.
They are one of the most non-attractive teams.

That Orix won the first prize at interleague games.
I was really surprised.
Anyone has never expected that they would win the first prize.

I am really happy for my father.

In addition to this, the top six teams belong to Pacific League.

Pacific League usually isn’t in the spotlight.
So, I’m also happy about it.


LE PINEAU

RIMG0007 (2)
As Yoshiko said, Sweets Boxes at some stations of Keihan Line are exciting.

I bought these cakes at Yodoyabashi Station.
One is a mango cake and the other one is a millefeuille.
Both cakes are not only deliciouse but also inexpensive.
The size is a little small but I shouldn't eat too many sweets.
I don't want to get lots of weight...


Sobagaki

(2010-06-11)
R0011016.jpg
Have you ever eaten Sobagaki before?

I ordered Sobagaki. I hadn’t known what it was like, though.

When a waitress brought Sobagaki, I was a little surprised.
It was a lump of something.
According to Wikipedia, Sobagaki is made with buckwheat and hot water.
Adding hot water in buckwheat, and then you scramble them.
So, you can make a good Sobagaki.

I didn’t know how I ate it, so I asked the waitress.
Raw Sbagaki is a plain taste.
So, I dipped it in a soup, and ate it.
It was OK but not delicious.
I heard kids had made Sbagaki and eaten as snack.
I think ancient kids have eaten very health snack.


FAA THAI

(2010-06-11)
R0011041.jpg
These are the dinner, which my old friends and I ate.
I met my friends at 10:00a.m.

Afterwards, we ate lunch at Bone Boir, and then went to café.
We left café at 6:00p.m.

We had no idea what we would do next.
However, what we could do was only going to eat dinner.

I wanted to go to one of my favorite restaurants, Tachiaoi, but it was on Saturday and it wasn’t opened.

I chose Faa Tai. It is also my favorite restaurant.
I don’t know other Tai food restaurants, but I think this restaurant is the best restaurant in Japan.

I want to see you their obsession.
Can you see the shapes of some animals?
They cut carrot as some animals; a chicken, a crab, etc…
They are really cute, aren’t they?

Of course, flavors of their foods were excellent!!
I think my friends also like their foods.

Eating delicious foods makes people pappy!!

BONE BOIR

(2010-06-09)
Today and tomorrow’s topics are the request of my friend.

I met my old friend last month, and went to French restaurant and Tai food restaurant.

I have already been to these restaurants before, and I really like both restaurants.

This is the French restaurant, Bone Boir.
I guess it means 'let’s enjoy drinking'.
The restaurant is located close to Yodoyabashi Station on Keihan line.

The restaurant is clean, so I like this restaurant.
The food is OK.
I think the one I ate last time was better.

These are their dishes.
R0011032.jpg

R0011035.jpg

The soup was made with mushroom.
It was good and I felt the smell of soil.

Last time, I ate chicken, so this time I ate fish for main dish this time.
According to my friend, the fish is ‘golden threadfin bream’.
The source is made of balsamic vinegar.
It wasn’t bad, but I prefer the chicken, which I ate last time.
R0011037.jpg

My friends ordered beef with ginger.
I don’t know if it was good or bad.
R0011038.jpg

My favorite one is, of course, dessert.
The cake was a caramel taste. It was sweet and it made me satisfied.
R0011039.jpg

I don’t think I will visit there again.
But if someone treats me, of course, I will go!


Ummmmm

Rakuten News

Rakuten, which is internet shop, sends me shopping news everyday.
When I have time, I browse at their news. Their offers are sometimes very exciting.
And, I sometimes waste much money while I don’t realize…

This is the latest wasteful stuff, which I bought at Rakuten.

They are cans of beer, of course!!

I don’t know they are good or now, but they seem really tasty.
The price is 1000yen include shipping fee.

Of course, I want to enjoy drinking them.


NEKO TAXI

(2010-06-07)
Lately, I don’t go to movie theaters.
One reason is that I can’t go to theaters on Wednesdays.
Wednesday is a lady’s day, so you can see movies for 1000yen.
I want to go on Wednesday but I have to go to Chinese school on Wednesday.

Of course, another reason is that there is no movie which I really want to see.

A couple of days ago, I saw a making video of ‘Neko taxi’ on TV.
Neko means a cat.
This is a movie and it releases on this Saturday.

You probably can expect about this story.

The main character is a taxi driver.
He seems a typical Japanese worker.

He cannot catch enough customers, so he cannot earn enough money.
His daughter looks down on him.
His boss always lands on him.

One day, a cat appears on his taxi.
He is a really cute cat.

Since then, his life changes.
He works with the cat everyday.
He can catch many customers, and he can spend a very good time.
However, his boss doesn’t think if the cat really wants to drive with him.
It is because the cat cannot talk. He says that even if the cat doesn’t want to drive with him, he cannot tell the taxi driver about it.

I don’t know the last part of this story.

I can see many cute cats on this movie. I really want to pet them.
And I remembered that the dog I saw on the taxi in France.
He/she was also really cute and I think he brings a good fortune.
This Neko-taxi’s cat also brings a good fortune.
He is a living beckoning cat.
I want to go to see this movie.


THE BEST PANINI

(2010-06-07)
090902-01.jpg

090925-02.jpg

A couple of days ago, I wrote about Muu Muu&il Bar CENTRAL BANCO and I said their panini was really good.

These pictures are their breakfast.
I took these pictures about a half year ago, and I always think I have to put them up on my blog.

Today I just show you these pictures.
Of course, I have no word to discribe this panini except delicious!!



THE JAPANESE ETIQUETTE

(2010-06-06)
What it the Japanese etiquette??

As I usually say, I have been learning the Japanese etiquette.

Learning the Japanese etiquette is useful and helpful.

However, I am sometimes complex.
There are some interpretations and I never know which one is the right one.

For example, how many times do you knock?
My teacher said that I should knock two times.
But other etiquette books said that the number of times of the knock was three.
I don’t know which one is right. Or both of them are right.

Yesterday, I saw SMA-STATION.
The program was about the Japanese etiquette.
Of course, I watched it.

There were some differences between the etiquettes which I have already learned and yesterday’s program…

I think it is really difficult which one I will choose.
Anyhow, it is very important to know about the Japanese etiquette.
And the most important thing is that the etiquette is just a tool which you show your mind.


Muu Muu&il Bar CENTRAL BANCO’

(2010-06-05)
R0011075.jpg

This is my first report of the ‘happy hour’.
I want to introduce you to ‘Muu Muu&il Bar CENTRAL BANCO’.
This bar is located close to Kitahama Station on Osaka subway line.

The price of happy hour is 1000yen.
It includes one drink and some foods.

You can choose a glass of drink on their drink menu; beer, wine, cartel, and non alcohol drinks.
They prepare some foods.
You go to a counter table and pick up some foods as much as you want to eat.
R0011077.jpg

R0011078.jpg

If you don’t satisfied and want to drink more, you can order additional drinks for extra charge.
I ordered ‘tasting wine’ course.
I can choose three kinds of wine, and one glass is about 60cc.
The price is 1200yen.
R0011079.jpg

R0011080.jpg

Of course, you can order other drinks.

The atmosphere of this bar is cick.
The happy hour is from 6P.M. to 8P.M., but my friend and I stay there until 8:30P.M.

In addition to this, I want to recommend their food.
I sometimes went to eat lunch there and their panini is the best panini.

If you work or live close to the bar, I cannot believe that you won’t visit there!!!

MY LIFEWORK

(2010-06-04)
Do you have something, which you can say, “This is my lifework!!”?

I didn’t have but now I have it.

Reporting ‘happy hour’!, This is my lifework

You probably can’t understand what I mean.

The ‘happy hour’ is a special menu for office workers.

I have already written about the happy hour before.
At that time, I called it 'Otsukare sama set’.

Many Japanese office workers are always very tired.
They often drink after work, but drinking every day sometimes gives you a bad influence to your budget.

This happy hour will save your life and your budget.

You can drink and eat for about 1000 yen at the restaurants, which have ‘happy hour’ menu.
You probably will be happy after visiting ‘happy hour’.
The ‘happy hour’ saves not only your budget but also Japanese economy!!


SMAP!!

(2010-06-03)
I don’t usually go to see concerts.
I used to go to see concerts often, but lately, I get tired to see concerts.
I have to stand whole time in concerts.

By the way, SMAP, which is the number one idle group in Japan, is going to hold concerts.

When I went to their concerts, they were NOT famous.
So, getting their tickets wasn’t hard.

However, it is the most premium tickets.
I haven’t been interested in them.
Lately, I met my old friend who likes SMAP, and I decided going to see their concert with her.

Now, every day we are talking about how to get their ticket.
Plotting strategies is very interesting.
I am dreaming we will see their concert at the first row of the concert hall.


I WANT TO BE A...

(2010-06-02)
I think I started to study Chinese 11th, March, 2008.
Afterward, I stopped studying from June 2009 to December 2009.
I restarted studying from this January.

While I am studying Chinese, I met many good teachers.
They are not my images of Chinese people.
My images of Chinese people are impolite and noisy.
Their voice tone is too high, so their voice makes me irritate.

However, my teachers are not like that.
I like all teachers who I met.
That’s why I can continue studying.

This time, I have done the third text book.
It means I have studied the basic Chinese.
It means I will have no trouble with trip to China if I can speak Chinese which I have already studied fluently.

Unfortunately, I can not speak fluently.

I will practice more and more, and I want to communicate with Chinese people in Chinese.


Please, come back!!!

(2010-06-01)
I always go to the same hair salon.
There is a guy who has not only good hands but also good personality.
He needs for about 4 hours to finish off my hair but I don’t feel it is 4-hour. Talking to him is a big fun for me.

Unfortunately, his skin is too weak, so perm solution made his hand’s skin bad.
Now he has taken long holidays and he works at somewhere.

I ask his mother about his return but she doesn’t give me a good answer.

Lately, I go to another hair salon.
A guy at the hair salon also has a good hand, but I prefer the guy who used to cut my hair.

I desire he comes back to the hair salon earliest.
