A NEW YAKITORI RESTAURANT

(2011-06-30)
R0012495.jpg
A new yakitori restaurant opened close to Ohwada Station.
I went there because they had a half-price sale.
One jug of beer was only 200yen!!!

However, the restaurant was full when I visited there, so I had to wait for about 30 minutes.

Their yakitoris were OK, I think.
One skewer is not so expensive, and the taste was OK.
The almost all of waiters and waitresses were part-time.
They were not bad, but they didn’t know what were services.

Anyway, I drank two jugs of beer and many foods.
I was satisfied.
Unfortunately, I won’t go there anymore because there are many good restaurants in Japan.

電車男

(2011-06-28)

Have you ever read ‘The Train Man’ before?
It is a very famous story and caused a major sensation.
I haven’t read it but I know the rough story line.

A dim Aykihabara boy helps a woman on a train.
He loves her but he doesn’t think she loves him.
His on line friends give him many advices, and finally they fall in love.

My image of the story is like this.

The story was translated to several languages.
But I don’t know foreign people read the story.

A few weeks ago, my Chinese teacher lent me ‘The Train Man’.
Of course, it is written in Chinese.
The teacher said that it was not so difficult for me, so I started to read it.

I read a couple of pages but it was very difficult because there are too many unknown words.
First, I looked up those words in a dictionary, but I thought I wouldn’t be able to be through with this book forever.
So now, I don't look up the dictionary, and expect the each word’s meaning by myself.
I think I will finish it sometime.


FIVE RENGER

(2011-06-26)

Do you know ‘Sentai-mono’?
It is one of the most famous Japanese TV program series.
It is made for kids.

Some heroes and heroines fight against evil.
Stories are very simple, so anytime kids like this series.
I used to watch this program before, but lately I haven’t watched.
It is because I don’t think it is interesting anymore.

There are some vending machines in my company and we can buy varieties of drinks.

I found ‘five-ranger can’s drink’.
Five-Ranger is the first program of ‘sentai-mono’.

Since I found it, I drank this drink everyday.
I wanted to collect five kinds of cans.

But a vending machine is very vagary.
So, I have to buy more than 5 cans.

A couple of days ago, I finally collected all of them.

I am very happy.

I show you my spoils.

SUMMER..

(2011-06-25)
It is too hot lately.

A couple of days ago, I couldn’t sleep because of this hot weather.
I looked at a thermometer and it said it was 32℃.
Can you believe it? It was not a day time. It was about 10P.M.

Yesterday, I started to use an electric fan.
It is very small but works very well.

Summer has just started.
I am not sure whether I survive this summer.


AWAODORI TOUR

(2011-06-23)
Have you ever had a complete medical checkup?
I want to go to every year but I often forget it.
However, I know it is very important for our lives, so you have time and you have money, it is better to get a complete medical checkup.

Lately, many hospitals step up this business.

Many foreign people, especially Chinese, come to Japan and get a medical checkup and look around Japanese sightseeing spots.
It is sold as a sightseeing tour.
It is very strange….

I found a very interesting plan.

Tokushima Red Cross Hospital collaborates with Awa-Odori Festival.

You check out your health and enjoy Awa-Odori Festival.

Ummm.

I don’t know who plan it.

First, I thought it was very silly, but now, I want to try it.

If I join this tour, I will report it.

A TERRIBLE MORNING

(2011-06-21)
What do you always do on a train?
I always read a newspaper in the morning and I read a book in the afternoon.
So books are very important for me.
I am not good at not doing anything.
So I always keep some new books in my apartment.

But I forgot to bring a book today.

It is terrible.

I don't have anything to do on the train.

I will just have to play ping-pong game with iPhone.


TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY

(2011-06-20)
My company and another company will merge.
I haven't already remembered how many times my company repeated it.
My mother sometimes complained about it and she said she couldn't remember my company’s name.
I agree.
I also cannot remember my company’s name.
This time we will change a lot.
For example, we will not be a joint-stock corporate.
We will be a foundation.
The head office will be located in Tokyo.

I don't know where I go.
But it is OK.
It is because…
TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY.



MY FRIEND

(2011-06-18)
R0012486.jpg

By the way, I went to hana with my friend.
She works at the same company but the different office.

We talked about our friends, our co-workers, our hobbies, our families, and our child days.

Surprisingly, she and I are very similar.
For example, both of us like KinKi Kids, both of us are not good at taking to women, and both of us don’t like the same person.
We meet a few times a year; last time, when we met was early this year,; but we didn’t know each other like this.

She talked about one of co-workers who teased her.
She didn’t tell that woman’s name, but I could expect.
It was BINGO.
She was very surprised because she had thought that anybody hadn’t thought that the woman had done like that.
But I know that woman’s nature, so I can agree.

We talked for more than three hours, and it was a big fun for me.

We promised to meet until the restaurant closed.


HANA

(2011-06-17)
R0012485.jpg

I went to eat dinner with my friend.

The restaurant is located close to Kitashinchi Station.

There was an information board at the entrance and it said that the restaurant would close in a few monthes.
My friend and I didn't know that, so we were very surprised.

The restaurant was very cute. I think any girls and ladies like this type of restaurant.

The customers were only two ladies except us, so I thought they had no way to be still alive.

These are dishes I ate.

R0012488.jpg
They served a big hors d’oeuvre, don’t you think so?
‘Carpaccio of the great amberjack’, ‘foie gras’, ‘raw ham’, ‘vegetables’, and etc. are on the plate.
There are some small shrimps in a cup.
I really like those shrimps.
They are really good for wine.


R0012490.jpg
I ordered ‘pie parcel of a quail and the mushroom’.
When I cut a part of pie, I could feel a good smell of quail.
There are gizzards in the pie, too. Its texture made me happy.
A garnish is a small cabbage. It was fresh and very sweet.

R0012491.jpg
The last one was of course dessert.
A sherbet is yoghurt and some kinds of orange taste.
A small pie was pineapple.

I thought I felt sorry that they would close because their dinner was not so expensive and they served good meals.

On the other hand, I know it is very difficult to continue to open the restaurant in this area, because there are thousands of restaurants around this area.

My friend and I said we would visit there one more time before they closed.

A IRONING BOARD COVER

(2011-06-16)
I use a steam iron once or twice a week.
I bought a new one a couple of years ago and it works very well.
But an ironing board got old, so I always thought I had to buy a new one.

A few days ago I went to a one-coin shop, and I found a good item there.

It was a cover of ironing board.

The surface of my ironing board was tattered, so it was good for my ironing board, I thought.

I also thought even if it was not so good, it might be OK, because it was only 100 yen.

Just after I got back to my apartment, I attached the cover to the ironing board.

It seemed as a new one.

Of course, I have already used it and it was really good.

I love a one-coin shop and I love to walk around a one-coin shop.
It is because I can find a good item.


TOKUYA

(2011-06-15)
RIMG0007.jpg

I visited Tokuya again.
Of course I went to eat dinner this time.
Their specialty is seafood.
I ordered ‘lady's dinner set’ and a glass of beer.
All foods are made with seafood.
The cook chooses and buys that day’s fresh seafood every morning, so anybody doesn’t know what we would eat.
RIMG0008.jpg


RIMG0009.jpg
This is yuba.
It is creamy.

RIMG0011.jpg
It is Iwadako I haven't heard Iwadako before.
‘Iwa’ means rock and ‘tako’ means octopus.
Octopus usually lives between sea weeds but Iwadako lives on rocks.
According to the cook, early summer is the best season to eat Iwadako.
It is smaller than octopus which is my image.
It is tender.

RIMG0010.jpg
They are raw fish.
All of them are fresh.
Shrimps are very sweet.

By the way, the cook has several good knives.
I saw his work and I thought he had not only good knives but also good hands.

RIMG0012.jpg
This is Shirauo.
They are beautiful, aren't they?

RIMG0013.jpg
This is whale meat shabushabu.
It is simple taste.

RIMG0015.jpg
The last one is ochazuke.
It is the food which we should eat at the end of a Japanese style party.


RIMG0016.jpg

I think it is a good restaurant.
But there were no customers except us.


SEVERAL BLADES SCISSORS

(2011-06-14)
HASAMI.jpg
Do you know scissors which have several blades?

You probably had an experience that you had received many direct mails.
And you probably want to veil your name and address under something when you throw out them, right?

The several blades scissors are used to cut those personal data.
It is very convenient and you don’t need wide space; it is not like a shredder.

But it was not developed for cutting papers.

First, it was developed for cutting nori(grilled laver/焼き海苔).

When you want to make shred nori, you can use it.
So you can eat delicious Zaru-Soba, Chirashi-Zushi, etc.

But the scissors were not good sales.
The company which sold the scissors got into the red.

Now they sell it as a shredder.
I heard it was a good sale.

A simple idea changed the company’s circumstance.

It is very interesting.

Don’t you think so?


CHINESE RESTAURANT

(2011-06-13)
A few weeks ago, I went to a Chinese restaurant in ANA hotel in Osaka.
I wanted to put up this report soon, but it is very difficult to explain how they are delicious in English, so I couldn’t.
I couldn’t tell you well, but their desserts are excellent. You should try.
R0012449.jpg

R0012436.jpg

R0012437.jpg

These are the meals.

R0012438.jpg
Guangdong tastes (広東) Row fish(beam)
There are many fresh vegetables under the fish.
The vegetables are crisp.

R0012439.jpg
Crab eggs and sharks' fin soup
I haven’t eaten it before.
And its taste is not like any other food’s taste.

R0012441.jpg
Fry-up of vegetables and seafood.
There are sliced yams in the plate.
Its texture is a little hard, but its hard texture makes me happy.

R0012444.jpg
Sweet and pungent pork
The outside of meet is crispy and inside is juicy.
The interesting thing is that there are pickled shallots.
It makes my mouth refresh.

R0012442.jpg
Two flavor of prawn.
One is mayonnaise, and one is hot.
But both of them are very mild.
The prawns are big enough and fresh.

R0012445.jpg
Fried rice
This fried rice taste is plain.
But szechwan pickles is a little hot.
So each food helps each food’s taste.

R0012446.jpg

R0012448.jpg
Dessert
I can say anything.
All desserts are very good.
Mango manju is good smells of mango and bamboo grass.
It is very springy.
Sesame dango is springy, too.
There is a good smell sesame paste in the dango.
It is a thin state.
And of course the others are also really good.

I want to eat their desserts one more time…


とく家

(2011-06-12)
R0012475.jpg
My company has a lunch party for persons in retirement once or twice a month.

The president, a retired person, and his/her bosses have a lunch party.
They can’t drink because they have to work after the party

I always look for a restaurant for the party.
But it is very difficult to find.
One reason is that there are not so many restaurants that the restaurants have small rooms for lunch.

A couple of days ago, when I was walking on the street, I found a restaurant.
It seemed a refined restaurant.
I looked at the restaurant from the outside, so a woman, who works at the restaurant, said to me please came in.

I told her about my circumstance, so she showed me a small room.
We talked for a couple of minutes.
Then a lady brought me a mizuyoukan.
It was a orange flyover mizuyoukan.
It was a little hard but made my mouth refresh.
R0012474.jpg

Of course, they didn't charge.
I was really happy.

I looked at the menu.
All of meals seemed very delicious.
I decided to visit the restaurant in a month.


IKKI(一輝)

(2011-06-11)
What is your most favorite food?
My favorite food is, of course, chicken.

I can eat chicken three times a day.
R0012476.jpg

I went to Yakuitori(char-broiled chicken) restaurant, Ikki..
I don't know if other countries have a culture of eating yakitori or not, but yakitori is one of the most delicious foods in the world.

First of all I ordered beer, of course.
Beer and Yakitori are very good friends.
Of course, all of them are chicken.

These are foods which I ate.
R0012477.jpg

R0012480.jpg

R0012481.jpg

R0012483.jpg

All of them are juicy.

I can't tell you how happy I am.
Drinking beer and eating chicken is as the same as living in the heaven.
Don't you think so?
I drank two jugs of beer and felt very successful.

Why is chicken so delicious like this?

TEA LESSON

(2011-06-10)
R0012451.jpg

I learned how to pour English tea.I have several reasons to learn about tea, but only one thing which I could say is that I just like to learn something.

It was a one-day lesson.
First I compared three kinds of tea leaves; Darjeeling, Sri Lanka blend and Assam.
Their leaves’ smells and shapes are completely different.
Afterwards, I learned how to keep tea leaves, the differences of good leaves and bad leaves.

Then, I poured three teas.Each leaf has its own good smell.
I tasted them.It's the same as tasting wine.Keep tea in your mouth a couple of second, and make sure its taste and smell.

Next, I learned about herb tea.
They have some bottles of herb teas.
They are very colorful and cute.
I smelled all of them, and choose five flavors.
Afterwards I poured five flavors and tasted.
I choose one of them and made blend tea.
An instructor said I could choose more herb, but I know it is too bad to get greedy.
I named my blend tea.
It is JinJan.It is my Chinese name.
I drank my blend tea and cookies.
Combination of them is perfect.


I really enjoy this lesson.

Next time, I will learn a preserved flower.
I want to enjoy again.

HE IS A PROFESSIONAL

(2011-06-09)
2011060912230000.jpg

I ate lunch at an Italian restaurant.

When I got there, nobody was there.
Only one cook was waiting for customers.

Just after I ordered, a bunch of Osaka-obachans came to the restaurant.
They were really noisy as usual.

Afterwards, two ladies, two ladies, and two ladies also came to the restaurant, and the restaurant was filled.

I was really worried because there was no employee.
The cook had to take orders, cook, and serve.

But he was a professional.
He was very skillful.
He could do many things at the same time.
I thought he had eight arms.

Only one thing, which I want to say sorry is that I don’t remember the taste of dishes.
I stared at his work, so I didn’t be attention to the dishes.

I’m so sorry…

CRAZY?

(2011-06-08)
A boy bought iPad by his kidney.
Did you hear this news?

One day a Chinese boy brought some expensive things, iPad or iPhone or something, to his house.
His mother thought something wrong, so she asked him how he had gotten them.

He said he had sold his body and bought iPad for that money.

He browsed at the Internet and knew that he could sell parts of his body.

It is crazy.

He didn't know which one was more important in his life.


ROSES

if you have time, please look at pictures.
They are very cute.

A ROSE GARDEN

(2011-06-07)
R0012397.jpg

There is a rose garden in Nakanoshima, Osaka.
You can see many beautiful flowers in this season.

I walk and look around the rose garden, and enjoy flowers everyday.

A lot of families and couples visit this area, and enjoy flowers.

Some people take a nap there.
They can feel good wind and good smell.

It is a good thing that there is a garden in a big city.

These are flowers.
Of course, you can see more flowers if you visit there.

The rose season has almost done.
You have to be in a hurry.


PURE WOOD

(2011-06-05)
IMG_0341.jpg

I went to a bar, PURE WOOD.
Its location is terrible because there are many indecent shops around there.

But this bar is not indecent.
You can go to the bar alone even if you are a girl.

It seems like a log house.
There are a counter and some tables in the bar.
I can see many bottles of alcohol, like whisky, tequila, etc…

IMG_0342.jpg


A bartender was friendly.
He knows how to please his customers.
He talked to me not too much but he didn’t leave me alone.
He knows a good timing.

And the timing of serving drinks and foods is good, too.
When I felt I wanted something to drink, he asked me what I wanted.
It is a very important thing to have a restaurant.
He is a really good bartender.
IMG_0346.jpg


I really enjoyed staying there.
I want to go there sometime.

IT IS HARD TO LIVE

(2011-06-03)
Lately my boss doesn't accept about arriving at the office early. I know the reason why.
It is because the Japanese Labor Standards Bureau doesn't accept that.
They say the time of arriving at the office means that it is the time of starting work.
So, arriving at the office early means that you work overtime.

It is very stressful for me.
I always arrive at around 7:30am
At the office, I eat breakfast, read newspaper, and write blog.
Of course I sometimes start working.
In the morning, nobody bother me, so, I can work very efficiently.
I don't want to get on crowded train.

Does the Labor Standards Bureau really think about workers?
Their proposals are sometimes irrelevant.
I want to work so that oneself wants to work.


CALLA

(2011-06-02)
R0012396.jpg

R0012383.jpg

I went eat French because I bought discount tickets.
Lately you can buy many discount tickets on the Internet.
Some of them are very convenient and reasonable.
I always think I want to buy some.

For example, Kushiage Taru is one of the restaurants which I bought a discount ticket.

This time the restaurant where I visited was located close to Ohebashi station.

I didn’t know that but there were many good looking restaurants around there.

The restaurant looked like a wedding ceremony hall.
The walls and ceiling are white.

These are foods which I ate.
R0012384.jpg

R0012386.jpg
mousse with crab of Hokkaido …


R0012387.jpg
Float franc vichyssoise and salmon roe made by cold water of the sea urchin from Hokkaido …

R0012389.jpg

R0012391.jpg
In the source which adjusted Rishiri kombu and Hokkaido butter to the farce of the salmon with the mousse of the scallop adductor muscle from Hokkaido …

R0012392.jpg
meuniere of Omar shrimp and asparagus

All of them are salty.
I think the restaurant used the same sauce, white sauce, so all of them are the same taste.
I was disappointed.

Their services were terrible.
There were many waiter and waitress but they didn’t care about their customers enough.
They didn’t know when they had to serve wine or water.
So, I had to ask them to prepare wine or water.

They had many tables.
And the customers were only three pairs.
But the restaurant guided all the customers at almost the same point.
I had to listen to the next table’s conversation.
I don’t know why…

The price was 2980yen.

I think it is better to eat Okonomiyaki if I pay 2980yen.
