Sky Tree!

2010.07.10

Andon is located in the east of Tokyo where is called “Shitamachi”(old Tokyo) and my home town is there as well.
Tokyo SkyTree is under constraction in Sumida-ward where is also in Shitamach area so I see the tower when I go to work every day. It’s getting higher and higher every day!

I went to Oshiage to see a friend of mine today and Tokyo Sky Tree was built just in front of the Oshiage station.When I got off the train and was going up from the underground,the big noise of constraction was heard.When I went out the exit,the huge white tower was rose before my eye’s!
It’s 398m in hight at the morment and the tower will be one of the world tallest for 634m in June 2011.

The constraction surround the tower was also very huge in scale.
Oshiage is a old,commonplace town now,however,it must be going to change vastely in one year.
I can’t wait for the completion..!

行燈旅館のある台東区日本堤は東京の東側に位置します。〝下町〟と呼ばれる活気あるこの地域が私は大好きです。私の生まれ育った地元も同じく東側にあります。墨田区に建設中の東京スカイツリーは、東東京の中で今もっとも注目を集めているスポットでしょう。
電車の中から、道を歩きながら、毎日ぐんぐん大きくなるスカイツリーを眺めながら私は毎日通勤しています。

今日は仕事の後、友達に会いに押上に行ってきました。まさに、スカイツリーの建つ押上です。
改札を出て、地下から階段を上がっている時から大きな工事の音が聞こえてきました。そして駅を出るとすぐ目の前に、いつも遠くから眺めているスカイツリーが聳え立っていました。大迫力です。

現在の高さは398mだそうです。来年の六月の完成時には634mにもおよび、世界一の高さになるそうです。
周辺の工事の規模にも驚きました。
古くてのどかな押上の街が、来年どんな街に変身しているのか今は全く想像がつきません。
完成がとてもとても、待ち遠しいです!

Enjoy Japan’s Summer Festival in Yukata

2010.07.08

My picture from last year, Tanabata Festival
 Today I had a chance to assist a lovely Canadian guest to put on Yukata, Japanese Traditional Summer Wear which reminded me of the time I was taught how to wear Yukata during Tanabata week last year. I was very happy to help her to look beautiful in Yukata and had a chance to use the skill for Andon’s guest. Even though, I am not very good at it like a professional, but seeing her smile has filled up my happiness in the heart.
The Hard Part is to tie Obi
  Anyway, If you have Yukata and forgot how to wear, today, I have a website which introduce you the long history of Yukata and teach you “How to Wear Yukata” step by step with picture and English explaination. So, not only in Japan but also in your country, anywhere anytime, you can take out the Yukata,put it on and just enjoy the beautiful sunny Summer.

Vacation in Sydney

2010.07.07

I went to Sydney in Australian for a week.

I have caught cold as soon as when I arrived there because Sydney is the opposite season to Japan and it was very cold!
I bought UGG boots soon and it was keeping worm for me :)  
The first purpose in this trip was to go to school of the coffee art with barista. I made coffee all day long and was able to take a qualification barista♪
Also  I could meet the friend who lived in Sydney and was able to spend a very great holiday.
オーストラリアのシドニーへ、一週間行ってきました。
シドニーは日本と逆の季節なので、とっても寒く、、、、着いた途端、風邪をひいてしまいました。
今回の旅行での一番の目的はバリスタとコーヒーアートの学校へ行くことでした。一日、コーヒーを作り、念願のバリスタの資格をとることができました♪
また、シドニーに住んでいる友達にも会うことができて、とても充実した休日を過ごすことができました。

Japanese Curry: Top’s

2010.07.06

My all time easy made Japanese food is curry, since I was young, my father and mother oftens made “homestyle curry” which was easy because they used an instant curry roux. So, curry in my opinion, it’s something I can make at home. So, why do I have to go having curry in a restaurant!!
spicy pork curry with spinach and mix vegetables
Recently, curry has been in my mind since I watched TV program that introduced “Curry Senmonten” or a restaurants that specialize in making curry from the stratch…O.O..like Camp curry in Sendagaya or Manten, dirt cheap but delicious curry restaurant in Jimbocho. Therefore, I think I will have to go to those places to try their curry.
However, today, I wanted to introduce one of the famous curry restaurant and cake shop “Top’s” which has many stores in “Depajika” (mall’s basement). I went to the one in Omiya Station. It’s the first time I tried Top’s curry which originally first opened in 1964 in TBS TV building. From the history, there’s no wonder that Top’s curry is something you can’t miss!!!
