Paris was not built in a day

(2011-08-30)
Have you been to Paris before?
Paris is a very beautiful city.
There are many parks, trees, and wide streets.
You can also see many beautiful structures.
So, a scene of Paris is like a cut of movie or a picture.

A few days ago, I watched a TV show about Paris.

It showed us how to create Paris.

‘Rome was not built in a day.’

But, Paris was not built in a day, too.

The first, a city plan of Paris started about 500years ago.

There are many bridges in Paris but they were not so beautiful.
There were many shops on the bridges, so the view of Seine was not so good.

When Henri III built the Pone Neuf, he wished a beautiful bridge and view.
It was a start of the city plan.

Afterwards, many people made a lot of efforts to create a beautiful city.
Wide Street, many trees, height of buildings, and so on.

And it still continues.

When President Chirac was a Paris mayor, he changed Champs-Elysees.
The sidewalks of Champs-Elysees are wide, but it used to use for a parking area.
So, even if the sidewalks were wide, there was no space to walk.

Mayor Chirac made a parking area under the streets, and now there are no cars on the sidewalks.

It was not so long time ago.

Before I went to Paris, my friends said there were many poo-poo on the strees.
But when I went there, I didn’t see them.

It is because the city plan has never finished.
Parisien and Parisienne love Paris.
They are proud of Paris.

That’s why they are NOT stingy with their effort to keep their beautiful city.


NAMA-CHU

(2011-08-29)
Populaly, there are three sizes of beer in Izakaya or restaurants in Japan, a small size, a middle size, and a large size.

The most popular size is a middle size beer, called ‘NamaChu’.
It means a middle size jug of draft beer.

‘NamaChu’ is a start of a party.
When we go to Izakaya, the first word which we say is, ‘NamaChu, please’.

By the way, the sizes of NamaCue are not the same sizes.
Each restaurant has own each size.
It is very strange….


A few days ago, I went to a Takoyaki restaurant.
I ordered ‘777 set’; it included NamaChu and seven Takoyaki.

They brought NamaChu, but that NamaChu was too small.

I thought I had misunderstood; “777 set does NOT include NamaChu, it includes a glass of beer”.

Afterwards, two ladies came and said ‘NamaChu, please.’

Their NamaChu is the same as mine.

Oh their NamaChu is not NamaChu….


A couple of days ago, I had pizza and NamaChu at an Italian restaurant.
Their NamaChu was small, too…

According to Wikipedia, the size of NamaChu is not one; the size of NamaChu is 350~500ml.
But latest NamaChu is smaller than 350ml glass…

I wish each restaurant uses a bigger size than 350ml glass.


UKIYOE

(2011-08-28)
flyer_hamburg-ukiyoe-thumb-200xauto-4086.jpg

I like to see ‘art’, especially, ‘Ukiyoe’.
When I was young, I didn’t like Ukiyoe.
I couldn’t understand good points of Ukiyoe.

I don’t know when my mind changed, but now, one of my favorite arts is Ukiyoe.

Shokokuji Temple Museum has held the Ukiyoe Collection form Hamburg.

The term was divided into two.
I have already seen the first term collection, and this time I went to see the second term collection.

Almost all of the print arts were changed.

And I thought I preferred the second collection.
It is too difficult to explain the differences between these two collections.
But the second term collections stroked right at the heart of me.
I guess one reason is that I could see my favorite artist’s, Torii Kiyonobu, works at the second collection.

By the way, this time I understood how ‘Utamaro’ was great.
I knew he was a great artist but, he was not my favorite.
But I changed my mind this time.
The women who he drew are very cute and sexy.
I like his works.

I am lucky because I have many chance to touch those beautiful Ukiyoe.


KITAZUIEN

(2011-08-24)
R0012856.jpg

A few weeks ago, my friends and I ate dinner at ‘Kitazuien’.
The head restaurant is located in Arima-Onsen, and this is the brunch restaurant.
I have been to the restaurant before and I really like this restaurant.
R0012859.jpg

However, this restaurant is a little expensive.
This time I got discount tickets, so we tried to go there one more time.


These are meals which we ate.
You can feel Japanese summer, can’t you??
Their foods are not only delicious but also very beautiful.
That’s why I like this restaurant.

I always think Kyoto restaurants are better than Osaka restaurants.
Osaka restaurants are not so bad, but I can’t see any refined artifices in their works.

But this restaurant’s foods are very beautiful.
I really like them.
Please enjoy these photos.

GOLDEN TETSUJIN

(2011-08-23)
R0012873.jpg

NTT Docomo will start a new wi-fi service.
This gold Tetsu-Jin is a symbol character of the service.
I don’t know the relationship between the new service and Tetsu-jin.
Anyway, he is a symbol…

I saw him at Osaka Station.
I heard it was like a balloon, so I thought it might be poorer.
However, it was very cool than I expected.
Many guys came to take this picture.
And you will get the golden Tetsu-Jin if you want.
Please look at this address.

BASHO-AN

(2011-08-21)
Warabimochi is a Japanese sweet treat and it is very good for this hot season.
However, good Warabimochi is very rare. It is hard to find good Warabimochi.

There is a good Warabimochi restaurant in Shin-Umeda-City.
I went there a few weeks ago.

Their Warabimochi is sticky.
They make Warabimochi after I order, so I feel their Warabimochi is very fresh.

You can enjoy sift soybean powder if you want.
It is very interesting for me.
They don’t seem delicious, do they??

TRIP TO TOKYO -8/7- GOOD BYE DISNEYLAND-

(2011-08-18)
R0012830.jpg

R0012833.jpg

The tour ended around 2:15P.M.
It started at 11:00A.M.
It was a little long, so all of children couldn’t walk anymore.

Tsuru-chan and I got tired, too.

Afterwards, we bought some souvenirs and left the Disneyland.

We bought lunch boxes and Asahi Super Dry at Tokyo Station.

We ate and drank just after we got on the Shinkan-Sen.
Super Dry was really good!!!

We spent lots of money at this trip, but we were really happy because we could take lots of pictures with Disney Characters, stayed at a good hotel, and bought cute cups.


TRIP TO TOKYO -8/7- DISNEYLAND GUIDED TOUR

(2011-08-17)
R0012829.jpg


Finally, we joined the tour.
Two families joined the same tour.
One family came from Gifu, and the other family came from Kobe.
Both families came by their cars.
Umm… sounds hard….

A tour guide was really cute.

We walked around each area of Tokyo Disneyland.
I have been to Tokyo Disneyland many times but she gave me lost of tips.
It was very interesting.
We could find many hid Mickey and Walt.

By the way, you can get not only much information about Disneyland but also three attractions enter privileges.
I mean you don’t have to wait in line.
It is a big benefit.

We could enter Haunted Mansion, Meet the Mickey, and Buzz Lightyear.

Going to Haunted Mansion and Buzz Lightyear aren’t so difficult because they pass ourtfastpass.
But if you want to go to Meet the Mickey, you usually have to wait for more than one hour.
It is the most popular attraction because you can take a picture with Mickey.

And of course, we took a picture with Mickey.
He was really really cute and he kissed me.

I was really really happy.
I would never forget this happy moment.

TRIP TO TOKYO -8/7- LUNCH AT DISNEY LAND-

(2011-08-16)
We went to a few attractions afterwards, and headed to the guided tour.

Before we joined the tour, we ate bread.

We didn’t feel so hungry because we ate too much last night.
But if we joined the tour at once, we wouldn’t be able to eat lunch, so we ate.
The green one is ‘Mike’.
It’s really cute, isn’t it??

TRIP TO TOKYO -8/7- DISNEYLAND-1-

(2011-08-15)
R0012823.jpg
On the 6th, we woke up early.
The premium point of staying at Disney hotel is that you can get an ‘early enter ticket’.
You can enter 15 minutes earlier than other guests.
It doesn’t sound long, but 15 minutes are very important for us.

First, we went to reserve ‘Disney guided tour’.

Afterwards, we picked up a fast pass of Toy Story, and then looked around some areas, and went to Mickey’s Phihar Magic.
This attraction is a new one.
I really like the former one, Mickey Mouse Revue, but it closed about a couple of years ago, and renewed.

The both attractions have the same concept, to introduce Disney music.
However the new one was a little boring for me.
One of the reasons is that the new one was 3D animation.
I don’t like 3D animation. The former one was the one which Mickey and several Disney characters dolls played some instruments; they were really cute.
Another reason was the new one’s music was new animations music, like Aladdin or Little Mermaid.
I like those animations, but I prefer classical ones.
I thought I would never visit this new attraction.




TRIP TO TOKYO -8/6- A SMALL PARTY

(2011-08-13)
After dinner, we looked around the hotel, bought some gifts, and went back to our room.
Of course, we spent a luxuries time in the room.
There were enough space for two persons, three TV, and a big bathtub.

Before sleep, we had a small party.
We bought Okinawa local beer at Okinawa Shop.
It wasn’t so good, but we had a good party.

TRIP TO TOKYO-8/6- CHEF MICKEY

(2011-08-12)
R0012784.jpg

The nest plan was to eat dinner at ‘Chef Mickey’.
As you probably know, Mickey and other Disney characters visit your table while eating.

It was a buffet style restaurant.
The foods were not so good, but I didn’t think I expected to eat good foods, so it was OK.

The most important thing was to meet Disney characters.

First, Minnie came to our table.
Of course, we took a picture with her.

And then, Mickey visited us.

He was really really cute.
I love him.

Donald and Pluto also visited us.

And all of customers sang a song and clapped our hands.

We were very busy because we had to eat dinner between characters visiting.

It was the first time for me to take pictures with so many Disney characters.
I was really really happy.
I will never forget this happy time.

TRIP TO TOKYO -8/6- DISNEY AMBASSADOR HOTEL-

(2011-08-11)
The second plan of this trip was to stay at Disney Ambassador Hotel.

Tsuru-chan and I always said that we would stay there someday.
And finally, ‘someday’ came to!!!

After we left the antique shop, we headed to the hotel.
R0012744.jpg


The hotel was a little far from the Maihama Station.
And it was very hard to find a front desk.
But it was OK.
Because our hearts have already flied to a cute room!!!

We stayed at a sweet room.

There were not too much Mickey but we could find hiding Mickey.
We enjoyed this room very much.
We felt we were very rich.

TRIP TO TOKYO -8/6- AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP-2-

(2011-08-10)
R0012742.jpg
I DON'T KNOW WHO SHE IS.
I SAW HER AT SHIN-OSAKA-STATION

We went back to the watch shop.
Tsuru-chan still stared at the watch.

The shop clerk showed her other watches, and his recommendations were excellent.

One watch caught her heart.
It was of excellent workmanship.
However, its surface was broken.
However, it was moving….

She still thought about buying it, but she passed it.

Afterwards, she bought another glass.
And she bought a bag there.

Ummm.
She is a rich girl.


TRIP TO TOKYO -8/6-AT ANTIQUE SHOP-1-

(2011-08-09)
R0012852.jpg
Tsuru-chan found a beautiful watch.
There were several diamonds on the face.
However, it was very elegant even if there were many diamonds.

Unfortunately, it was 900,000yen.
She stuck her at the show case but she didn’t buy it.


We continued to look around the building.

I wanted to see antique cups, and if they had a good one, I would want to buy it.

Some of shops had beautiful cups, but the conditions were terrible.
Some of them chipped off and some of them cracked.
I was very sad…

They had an excellent painting cup.
I knew it was valuable, but that cup also cracked…
It was unlucky.

I bought a cup & saucer and a cup for Soba there.
Tsuru-chan bought a glass and two cup & saucer.
She had lots of money.


TRIP TO TOKYO -8/6-1-

(2011-08-08)
I went to Tokyo with my friend, Tsuru-chan’.

We met and ate lunch in a Shin-Kan-Sen, and arrived at Tokyo around 13:00.

We had several plans and the first one was to visit antique shops.

There are many antique shops in Tokyo, of course, and we visited a building which had many antique shops.

We looked at each shop.

Looking at shops was very exciting but some shops were closed because of Obon vacation.

The first shop which we stopped at sold table wares and stationery.

They sold beautiful card cases, a hand glass, memo pad, etc.

Tsuru-chan found a cute wine glass.
I stared at it and asked about the glass.
But she didn’t buy it at that time.

Afterwards, we saw several shops.
Tsuru-chan bought a blue colored necklace at a jewel shop.

I thought she had lots of money.

LUNCH BOX


SOYO

(2011-08-07)
I bought SOYO last year.
SOYO is a double-layered-sheet for bed.
Air goes through between layers of the sheet, and this air makes my body dry.

I am not sure this sheet works well, but I use it everyday.

Last night, I woke up in the midnight.
I got sweat.
I looked at the switch of SOYO.
It turned off automatically.

Now I know SOYO works really well.
I can recommend it to my friends.


HEALTHY

(2011-08-04)
I have a terrible backache.
I have stiff shoulders.
But I don’t do exercises.

I thought it was too bad for me, so lately, I started to do ‘radio gymnastic exercises’.

I don’t listen to the radio, so correctly it is not ‘radio gymnastic exercises’.

The TV exercise show starts at 6:25 A.M.
I watch it everyday, and do exercise.

When I do it, my shoulders and my neck make strange noises.

But I feel really good after the exercise.

I always give up easily(I mean ‘mikka-bouzu’).
But I want to continue it as long as I can.


AT THE DEPARTMENT STORE

(2011-08-02)
At the Teddy Bear Fair, two import companies have opened shops.
I thought they were rivals but they weren’t.
It is because their products are completely different.
One shop sells artist bears and the other shop sells manufacture dolls.
Both shops have different appeal, so I cannot say which one is better.

A sales clerk really likes dolls.
He explained a lot about dolls, which weren’t their products.

He said that while the fair, he saw the other shop’s dolls everyday.
That’s why he has lots of knowledge about all of bears.
His boss often rebuked him but he said he couldn’t stop it.
When he talked about dolls, his face shined with joy.
We talked more than 30 minutes.
When I realized it was the time of closing.
I didn’t have time to buy lunch box at the Kyushu-Hokaido Fair…

But it is OK because I have had good time.


CUTE...BUT...

(2011-08-01)
44-2.jpg
The Keihan Department Store has held ‘A Teddy Bear Fair.’

I’m interested in teddy bears, so I went to see it.

What is your image of teddy bears?

Some of them are very expensive, some of them are treasures of families, some of them are made in bulk, and some of them are made by famous artists.
Some of them sometimes really ….. not cute.
I didn’t understand why some people buy those expensive, dirty, and ugly bears.

But now, I can understand.

Because I met a cute rabbit doll once, and then fell in love.
I think many people have had the same experiences.

This time, I couldn’t meet ‘my doll’, but I saw very cute, very valuable, and very expensive bear and tiger.
I couldn’t take their pictures, but these bears were made by the same artist.

It is really hard to understand why they are too expensive, the bear is 900,000yen and the tiger is 1,500,000yen.
But I could agree why they are so expensive.

They seem alive. They seem to talk.
If your finger approaches to the tiger’s mouth, it might bite your finger.
You can feel like that.

Unfortunately , I couldn’t buy them.
But I am lucky that I could see such cute dolls.
Looking at valuable things makes me a kind of expert.
