I LOVE YAMACHAN

(2010-08-31)

As I always say, I LOVE chickens!!
I want to eat chickens at each lunch and each dinner.
That’s why I try not to eat chicken.

One of my favorite chicken restaurants is ‘Yamachan’.
Their chicken wing tips are very popular in Nagoya.
It is spicy, juicy, and crispy.
I can eat them without end….

Yamachan is a chain restaurant, and there are thousands of Yamachan in Nagoya.
Unfortunately there is no Yamachan in Osaka.
So, when I visit Nagoya, I must go to Yamachan.

I visited Nagoya last weekend. Of course, I went to Yamachan.
When I got there, it was about 9:00 P.M., but it was really crowded.

We ordered some foods there, but their chicken wing tips were the best.
The bad thing was that the size was not so big, so I couldn’t be satisfied if I ate a few tips.
It was the bad habit.

The other foods were also good, but I thought it was a big mistake for me to eat the other foods at Yamachan.
It is because I can eat the other foods in Osaka but I cannot eat Yamachan’s chicken wing tips.

Lately, I don’t visit Nagoya often. But I want to visit Nagoya only to eat Yamacan.

GM 踊れ!ドクタ~

(2010-08-30)
I don’t usually watch TV dramas but I watch ‘GM. Let’s dance! The doctor’ every week.
This story is about one doctor who is a genius.
He comes to save one section of the hospital, which is called ‘a group of dropout’.
But he has another dream. He wants to be an idol.
He always thinks about he and his new idol group and he pictures the day of his group’s debut.

The drama is really funny.
As you probably know, Higashiyama-san who acted the doctor used to be a top idol.
And he still has many his fans.
His job and hobby are ‘dance’. So, nobody can act this doctor except Higashiyama-san.

In the drama, he always dances.
While he thinks about his patients, he is still dancing.

This drama is trifling but very funny.
I missed a couple of episodes, so if I have a chance, I want to see those episodes.

If you have never seen the drama, I recommend you to see that strongly.



燃えよ剣

(2010-08-29)
My father likes Japanese history.
He used to read historical books a lot but now he doesn’t read it.
His eyes are not so good because he is more than 80 years old.
But he seems he still like Japanese history. Sometimes he watches NHK historical dramas.

I am interested in, NO , I think I have to be interested in Japanese history.
But I am not good at…
I tried to read Japanese historical books many many times, but I have never continued reading.

Lately, I read the story about Shinsen-gumi.

Shinsen-gumi is a group of samurai. They worked for Japanese government at the latest Edo period.

Their work in Kyoto was very famous and it is a kind of regent.
Each person of Shinsen-gumi is very attractive.

Many Japanese still like them.

As I said, I am not interested in Japanese history, but I always think I have to study the history.
So, this time I bought the story of Shinsen-gumi.

It was very interesting. I felt like I saw an entertainment show.

The story was exciting.

And I knew I had known only one part of Shinsen-gumi…

The reason of choosing this book was that I had to buy two books published by Shincho-bunko.
I just wanted to get a bandana.
In every summer season, some book companies have a reading campaign.
And this year, Shincho-bunko gave us cute bandana.

The reason was simple and I had a hidden agenda.
But Shincho-bunko gave me not only a bandana but also a good chance to read historical sotry.



Nooooo!!!

(2010-08-28)
A man burned his house…

Did you hear this news???

The man is about 30 years old.

He thought his mother had thrown his treasure, ‘GUM-PLA’ away.

He was really shocked and angry. And then…..

What do you think the news???

I talked about the news with my co-worker.

She and I like Japanimation and we said we could understand his feeling but we would never burn our houses….

I have some experiences that my father threw my comic books away before he told me.
At that time, I became I disliked him…
Why didn’t he tell me before he threw away???

My co-worker said the same thing.

Of course, he shouldn’t burn his house, but his mother also has to reflect.



CAT CAFE

(2010-08-26)
R0011473.jpg
This café is located close to Keihan Senbayashi Station.
I saw this café on free paper of Keihan railway.

The area where this café is built is a little strange….
I think no young ladies go to this area.
So, I was really surprised.

This neko(cat) coffee is very cute.
I had a free ticket, so I don’t have to pay for drink…
The ice-cream was OK.
Any way, if you want to see this coffee, you should go to.

THE LAST LEAF

(2010-08-25)
Do you know ‘The last leaf’ written by O Henry?

This is one of the most famous stories in the world.

A woman is ill.
She sees the tree of the outside through the window of the hospital everyday and thinks she will die when the last leaf fells down.

I knew the story.
But I didn’t know the end of the story.
I didn’t know whether she had died or not.

I bought this book a few days ago.
There are many short stories in the book.
I could see many humorous and bitternesses.
I didn’t know O Henry, so those stories were not my image.
I thought his stories were more romantic and sadder.

The end of ‘the last leaf’ was not my image.
I thought this story was written about a pitiful girl.
But this story was a very strange…

I don’t tell you the end of the story.

I doubt the translation of the story.
However, I want to read the story in English…


西洋茶館

(2010-08-24)
After we ate Samugetan, we walked along the Tenjinbashisuji shopping arcade.
This shopping arcade is the longest shopping arcade in Japan.
My friend was very surprised because the goods we saw at the arcade were very cheap.

Tamaichi was a little noisy, so we went to a café.

We went to Seiyo-sakan.

I knew this café but it was the first time to visit there.
The café was not my image.
I thought there were many middle-aged men there and they were reading horse-race-paper.
However, it was a very cute café.
There were many antique goods and they had many kinds of tea leaves.
I like the atmosphere of the café.

We were really satisfied because we could eat delicious Samugetan and visit the cute café.

SAMUGETAN

(2010-08-23)
R0011446.jpg

I went to eat ‘samugetan’.
‘Samugetan’ is a Korean food made with rice and chicken.
As you probably know, I LOVE chicken….
I have eaten retort pouch ‘samugetan’ before, but it was the first time to eat at a restaurant.

We ate at ‘TAMAICHI’.
I heard this restaurant’s Korean food was good, so we chose this restaurant..

These are foods my friend and I ate at Tamaichi.
All foods were really good.
R0011442.jpg

R0011443.jpg

A dressing was a little sweet and spicy. I felt like I was in Korea.

R0011444.jpg

Chidimi was very thick and texture was like Japanese rice cake.

R0011445.jpg

And SAMUGETAN.

It was non-fatty. The chicken was very soft. You don’t need your teeth to eat the chicken.
The soup was also really good.
The soup = ‘chicken’.
And the rice in the Samugetan was mochi rice. It was…..Ummm. I cannot tell you….

Any way, I felt really happy.
I don’t like Korean barbecue but I love ‘Samugetan’!!!!


変身(カフカ)

(2010-08-22)
Have you already read ‘The Metamorphosis’ written by Franz Kafka?

I read this story when I was a junior high school student.
It was a really strange story and it was too hard to understand for a little girl.


A few months ago, this story played on a stage.
Mr. Morimoto Mirai acted Zamza who was a main character.

I wanted to see the play buy I didn’t have enough money.

Luckily, I could see the play on T.V.

I was very interested in how would Mr. Morimoto act a bug.

And his act was amazing.
I could see many legs around his body. He was just a bug….

By the way, what is your image of bug of this story?

My image is like a centipede.

There are many legs and its body is shining.
Gross.

According to Wikipedia, it was said that the bug was like a beetle.
It has a hard chell.

Ummm.
It is not my image….
Anyway, the play is very interesting.
If NHK re-airs, you should see the program.



AMAZING

(2010-08-21)
A soy bean grew in a human body.

Do you know this news?

I saw the news a couple of weeks ago.

A man felt bad and went to a hospital.
He took an X-ray, and they found a shadow in his lung.

The doctor thought it was a cancer, and then opened his body….

So, the doctor found a soy bean grown….
Of course, he took of a soy bean in his lung.

If you were the heard reader of Black Jack, you probably remember one story.

In that story, cactus grew in a boy’s body.

I thought that story was only in a comic, so when I saw that news, I was very surprised.

‘The reality than a novel strangeness’


I CAN WALK

(2010-08-20)
While the Golden Week, I had to sit with my legs tucked under me.
At that time, I hurt my right knee and I couldn’t walk without pain.

It is too bad for me because I really like walking.

I always walk from Kyobashi station to Yodoyabashi station but I couldn’t walk.
I went to an orthopedics but it was still bad.

Lately, my knee has been getting better and better and I can walk.
Today, I walked from Kyobashi to Yodoyabashi.
I didn’t walk fast, so I needed to much time to get Yodoyabashi, but I could walk anyway.

I am really happy now.
I should take care of my knees because they have to work until I die.



SUENOSATO

(2010-08-19)
R0011419.jpg
After te museum, I went to eat lunch.
There is a Sueno-Sato close to the museum.

We have to pay an entrance fee but you can see many products of ceramics there.

First of all, of course, I ate lunch there.
I was really hungry.
I can eat lunch at the museum but I don’t like that restaurant.

This is my lunch.
Kamameshi and fried chicken.
The taste was OK. I think I will visit there next time.

By the way, there are many manufactures of ceramics in this area.
Those manufactures sell their products at Sueno-sato.

I looked around the Sueno-Sato.
They have sometimes strange and sometimes beautiful products.
I stopped at each shop and looked at their products.
I think I was there about 1 or 2 hours.
I wanted to buy many many ceramics but I don’t have enough money.
I chose only two products.

When I paid, a woman said they were very beautiful.
I was really happy to hear that.

Trip to that area was too long but very exciting.
I will visit there one more time in this year.

The Museum of Ceramic Art, Hyogo

(2010-08-18)
R0011407.jpg

R0011412.jpg
I visited The Museum of Ceramic Art, Hyogo on 14th August.
That was the second visit for me; the first visit was a few years ago to see Wedgewood.

I want to visit that museum anytime, but it is too far from my apartment.
I need more than 2 hours by train.

This time, I went to see ‘Kakiemon & Sanda - The Beauty of Emerging Forms’.
Sanda is the name of area around the museum and Kakiemon is the name of product in Saga, Kyushu.

The exhibit was really interesting.
They showed me not only products but also molds.
So when we see their exhibit, we compare the differences between the products and molds.

Sometimes they have only molds.
It was really interesting and exciting for me to picture in my head the products made by those molds.

By the way, I visited there alone.
At the museum, I asked some questions to an attendant.

Afterwards…..

We talked about ceramics more than one hour.
I was really satisfied because I don’t have a friend who likes ceramics.

Nabeshima is one of the products in Saga, in Kyushu.
They made for only government of Tokugawa.

She said that’s why Nabeshima was too expensive.
They have some sizes of plates and the expensive one is more than 10,000,000yen!!
But the Nabeshima is very beautiful. It has beautiful colors, beautiful shapes, and delicate pictures.

I was very satisfied.
I felt really happy to meet her.

LUNCH AT THE HOTEL

(2010-08-17)
R0011402.jpg

We had lunch at the hotel.
My friend wanted to eat other meal but I didn’t have enough time to eat lunch, so we ordered one-plate-lunch.

The taste was OK but their service was bad.

While I was eating, some waitress asked me if I had finished or not several times.
I couldn’t relax.
And they brought a cup of tea, I was still eating lunch, though.

I sent e-mail to the hoel about it.
I am waiting for their answer.

TIHGA ROYAL HOTEL -DINNER SHOW-

(2010-08-16)
Just after I arrived at the RIHGA Royal Hotel, I remembered the dinner show of Shonentai.

When I was a big fan of Shonentai, I came to this hotel.

I was very young and liked Nishikiori-kun very much.
We had a lot of friends.
After the dinner show, we changed our dresses, and held a fashion show, and took many pictures.

That was a really good memory.
And I was surprised that I forgot about it before I had visited the hotel.


RIHGA Royal Hotel

(2010-08-15)
R0011398.jpg

R0011400.jpg

I went to RIHGA Royal Hotel, Osaka to eat lunch with my friend.
Before the lunch, we walked around the hotel.

I don’t usually go to first class hotels, so looking at the first class clothes or jewelries was very interesting.

They have a beautiful garden and beautiful cakes.
Today I will show you those pictures.

GOOD SAKE

(2010-08-14)
R0011405.jpg
As I said, I bought a cutting glass a few months ago.

Since then, I was looking for good sake.
However, a bottle of sake was too much for me and very heavy.
And I don’t know which sake is good sake.

A few weeks ago, a man sold sake, which he made.
It seemed really delicious. I tasted some of them.

I told him that I had bought a good cutting glass and wanted to buy good sake.

So, he recommended another sake.
It was a little expensive but very delicious.
Of course, I bought it.
I wanted to drink soon but if I open it, I have to drink a whole bottle in a week.
I waited for a chance.

And the summer vacation came.
I don’t have to work!!!

Finally I drank that sake.
It was a little sweet and thick but not so heavy.
I just want to say, ‘It is delicious!’
I thought if someone drank together, it would be more delicious.

UOI (魚伊)

(2010-08-13)
RIMG0029.jpg
Eating eel is very popular in summer seasons.
I can see many delicious-looking eels on TV.

When I see those eels, I really want to eat eel.

But eel is very expensive, and I don't want to eat poor eel sold at a supermarket, so I have no chance to eat it.

And finally, I went to eat it!!!

There are many eel restaurants in Japan and this time I went to Uoi(魚伊).

Two type-cooking methods are popular; Tokyo style and Osaka style.
I like both styles. Uoi’s method is Osaka style.

They are really crispy. And very thick.
I love eel!
The eel was landed at Tokushima.
It seemed fresh.

Lately I felt very tired because of the weather. So, this delicious eel gave me a lot of energy.
RIMG0030.jpg

RIMG0031.jpg

RIMG0032.jpg

By the way, those cakes were found close to the eel restaurant.
I wanted to eat a whole cake but I couldn’t.
I need a big stomach like a cow…

月居

(2010-08-12)
R0011382.jpg
They are appetizers.
Jelly fish, bangbang chicken, gizzards, cabbage with mustard, and potato.

R0011383.jpg
This is shao-ron-pao

R0011384.jpg
This is Shiitake- mushroom with oyster source.

And this is my favorite one, Fukahire-ankake-rice.
R0011386.jpg

The hardness of the cooked-rice is the best.
It is a little harder, but the source mixed the rice very well, and the hardness of the rice become a little softer.
The source is a little sour and a little sweet.
That meal makes me very happy.

The last one is of course dessert.
We ordered Mango pudding and Anin-tofu.
Both desserts are very thick.
We were really sartisfied.
R0011387.jpg

R0011389.jpg

My ex-co-worker left my office a few months ago.
And now she is working at a famous company in Kyoto.
She said she worked as a secretary.
Lately, it is hard to find a new job, so I think she has an enough skill to get a new job.


We stayed there for about 3 hours.
We ate and talked a lot.

The cost of the meals was only 11000yen.
We were really surprised because we had thought we had to pay for 10000yen each.

We will go to a French restaurant close to the Chinese restaurant.
There are many many good restaurants in Kyoto.
I love Kyoto.


月居-1-

(2010-08-11)
R0011378.jpg
I went to a Chinese restaurant, Gekyo, with my ex-co-worker.

I have visited the restaurant before, and it is one of my favorite restaurants.
I wanted to visit there one more time but I didn’t have a chance.
One reason is that it is located in Gion area, and Gion area is a little far from my apartment.
The other reason is that the restaurant in Gion is a little (or very) expensive, so I cannot ask someone to go there with me.

My co-worker lives in Kyoto, so she doesn’t think Gion area is far.
So we decided going to the restaurant.

I said it was a Chinese restaurant, but it doesn’t seem a Chinese restaurant.
It seems like a Japanese restaurant.
There is a counter in the center of the restaurant. So, we can see cooks’ cooking.

R0011381.jpg


HAMO

(2010-08-08)
R0011371.jpg
What is your image of summer?
Fireworks?
A watermelon?
A straw hat?

One of the foods which brings Summer is, of course, Hamo(Conger myriaster)!!

A few weeks ago, I went to eat Hamo-Shabu.

Hamo is really delicious but it is too expensive.
But the restaurant close to Kayashima Station serves Hamo for reasonable price.

I don’t know why they have good Hamo, but their Hamo is really good.
They cut Hamo’s small bones very well.
And ‘Zousui’ after Hamo-shabu was especially good.
It was made with rice and soup of good Hamo!!! I cannot tell you how delicious it is.

Hamo season has almost done.
You should eat Hamo while this hot summer season!!

3-D

(2010-08-07)
As suspected…

Have you already seen 3-D movies?
Was it exciting????

Lately, we can see 3-D TVs at shops.
Almost all of Japanese people will buy them in this 10 years.

But….

I cannot see 3-D movies or TV programs.
I have seen 3-D movies at amusement parks before, and I always felt sick except Captain EO.

I worried if other guys were OK or not.

Then, I saw the news which some people felt sick after (or while) they watched 3-D movies.

I thought I would never see 3-D movies anymore.
It is a good thing for me because I don’t have to buy 3-D TV.


THE RAW DONUTS

(2010-08-05)
R0011375.jpg
What is a raw donut like?
Can you imagine it?

I saw this ‘raw donut’ at Yodoyabashi Station.

Many many people lined up to buy the donuts.
I was really interested in it, but I didn’t want to wait for buying it.

One of my co-workers bought and gave me it.

Oh!
They were colorful and seemed really delicious.

I ate ‘green apple’ flavor’s one.

The raw donut mean is that they are not deep-fried or baked.

It was like a mousse.
I mean the raw donut is the donut shaped mousse.

The taste was OK but I prefer normal donuts.

Anyway, I satisfied myself.



SUMMER FESTIVALS

(2010-08-04)
ykh_Z9xPS1cJ.jpg
It is a season of summer festivals.
The summer festivals in Tohoku Area are very exciting.
Many Japanese have watched those festivals before, or many Japanese desire to go there until they die.

I also want to go to see the festivals.
However, I don’t want to go to a people jam.

My favorite one is Kantou Festival.
Many many Kantou are, which are lights, hung up frames made of tall bamboos.
People carry those bamboos and walk around the street.
It is very dynamic.
At night, all of kantou light up and it is fantastical.

Of course, I also like Nebuta Festival and Tanabata Festival.
Those three festivals are called ‘Toyoku Sandai Matsuri.”

I want to see them after I retire.



Are you still alive?

(2010-08-03)
Are you still alive?

Latest most strange news is that 111 year-old man has already died.
Don’t you think so?

His neighbors have thought it was really strange because they have never seen him lately.

When he was found, he has already died and he became a mummy.
According to his family, he said he wanted to become a Sokushinbutu, which means he/she becomes a mummy without eating while he/she is still alive.

If he really wanted to be a Sokushinbutsu, he was success.

Everybody doubts his family because after he died, they still got his pension.

I sometimes think if I die, nobody pays attention because I live by myself.
I don’t want to be a mummy or decomposed body when I am found.



THE LAST LECTURE

(2010-08-02)
Do you know Mr. Osamu Kitayama?
He is a famous Japanese musician.
You probably know some of his song but my image of him is Jikiru Haido which is his other name.

I didn’t know that but he became a psychologist.
And he has worked at Kyushu University until this January.

I saw his TV program, ‘the last lecture’.

He told the reason why he had left the show business and hadn’t appeared on TV program.

His lecture was very interesting and I was thinking about his life.

By the way, what is your favorite his song?
My favorite song is ‘Hanayome’.

After I saw this program, I really wanted to listen to Hanayome.
Lately, you can listen to almost all of the songs on Youtube for free.

Of course, I searched this song and listened to many times.
I made out I really liked this song.
But I couldn’t understand the situation of this Hanayome.

Anyway, I still like this song and this song got back to my school days.


うまトマ

(2010-08-01)
Have you ever been to Matsuya before?
Matsuya is a beef-rice-bowl restaurant.
I can see this restaurant anywhere because it is a chain store but I haven’t been to there before.

They always have special seasonal dishes.
I always see their labarum of advertisement. Their seasonal dishes seem really delicious.

Now they have a special hamburger steak dish. It seems really delicious.
And finally, I ate it a couple of days ago.
It was…..not so tasty.
It was saltier than I thought. But the salad was fresh.
The price of this menu was 580yen.

UMMMMM…..

But I think I will go to Matsuya again.
And I probably will eat their seasonal dish and then complain.
