Neput estival in Goshogawara

2010.08.12

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aO2PZTsxc_w

「やってまれ。」「やってまれ。」 の掛け声とたいこ、笛、などのお囃子共に、大型のねぷたを引く姿は圧巻っだった。弘前が静なら五所川原は動、残念ながら今回はこの二か所しか見に行くことができなかったが、青森は更に 激しくはねるらしい。次回はぜひ、青森も。

お祭りに参加している人たちの何と、楽しそうな事、私もつい輪に入って踊ってみたくなってしまった。子供も大人もおじいちゃんもおばあちゃんも楽しそうだ。東北の方たちのたくましさを目の当たりにして、わたしも拍手と「やってまれ。」が自然と。

Summer Cut!

2010.08.11

I have a dog and his name is Leo. He is pomeranian.
He went to hairsalon last week and he did summer style!! Looks totally different! His hair stayle is called “Small Lion cut”.

In this summer it is very hot weather and he has long hair so we decided to cut his hair a lot!
He looks like lion but not strong… ;p
I like his tail and he is so cute!!

私はポメラニアンの犬を飼っているのですが、先週、とても暑かったため、サマーカットにしました。ライオンのようなカットで、とてもかわいいです。私はしっぽがお気に入りです♪

Mo+ Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo

2010.08.10

Current Exhibition Board

Animation can be alive in reality by the magical hand of film production designer like Mr. Yohei Taneda ! His current exhibition of Studio’s Ghibli “Karigurashi no Arrietty” is “the hot must do things this Summer”. He has created the world of “Little People” who live under the floorboard of normal people’s house inside 1,200 sq.m. exhibition space. As soon as I walked inside the exhibition space, I felt like I was the little people and part of Arrietty’s family, everything’s so real and approacble, I could feel that the little people were actually living there.

Entrance of Mo+

After touring Arrietty’s house, Taneda took us to the garden where Arrietty like to play, then, the mood of exhibition changes to be more like simple with his previous productions photographes and Arrietty’s production plans and sketches.
I bought original soundtrack CD which produced by Cecile Corbel and some postcards as souvenirs, I like all the songs in the movie because it reminds me of my childhood and also encourage me to live on strong with positive motivation.

The exhibition will last until October 3rd. and ticket can be purchased at Mo+ ( 1,200 yen) for access information, please visit http://www.mot-art-museum.jp/eng/access.html

Neputa Festival in Hirosaki

2010.08.09

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqid–7Ctxs

I went to Neputa festival last weekend. There are three places in Aomori Neputa festival,Hirosaki,Goshogawara and Aomori.
Hirosaki Neputa festival is quiet. People haul on a rope with saying “Yayado”.The neput float panel was really big so it was very difficult to haul under the street because high street lamps.
When the neputa float panel touched it the festival people care for it much more. When it pass throw under the street lamp. People clap the hands a lot. It was excited.

ねぷた祭りにとうとう行く事ができました。一度はぜひと思っていたので、とても感動しました。新幹線で八戸から弘前へ、早速駅ではねぷたのお出迎え。祭りはお嫁さんのお母様が、ホテルの2階の特等席を予約してくださったので、涼しい中ゆっくり、全てのねぷたを見ることができました。あんなに大きなものを、人間がひいているのですから、色々な障害物があって、そこをくぐると観衆から、拍手がわいて、祭りを行う側と見物している側が一体となって、祭りを盛り上げるシーンは圧巻でした。寒い北国の一瞬の夏のお祭りのパワーに、しばし我を忘れ、酔いしれる事ができました。
右はお嫁さんの実家の近くの田舎館村のたんぼアートです。こちらも、各種色の違う苗を育てた結果ですので、大作です。

My Sweet Day

2010.08.08

I love having sweet especially ice cream and all kinds of cake, I can even have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a day. Well, I actually did it few days ago. Hidemi Sugino in Kyobashi ( just off Ginza district) was my first stop, this pastissier found in 1973 and the owner chef Hidemi Sugino become well-known when he won the world pastissier championship in 1991. The waiting line’s started even before the shop opens each day. Of course, when I got there, I had to que up, once the store opened, everyone walked inside in order to select the choice of cake or kind of sweet then proceed to a seat. Unfortunately, picture inside the facility is not allowed in order to preserve the quatity of time of each customers to enjoy the taste of each cake. However, I managed to find picture of the cake I chose, which both were famous and could only be eaten inside only. The rich taste of quality ingredient was mouthful and worthed all I paid for….Next, I stoped by Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum to see the exhibition of Karigurashi no Arrietty and had lunch at cafe Hai, for dessert, I chose Vietnamese Flan, which used lots of contense milk and coffee for the caramel with crush ice, it’s very refreshing after a long walk.
Then I went to Shibuya for the sake of having Shoto sponge cake, I knew this Shoto Cafe by watching Japanese TV show, that the man in yellow suit walks along the area to search for cheap and delicious food that is recommened by each place he visited. For the Shibuya district, he ended up at Shoto Cafe and had toasted Shoto cake with fresh whip cream, of course I ordered the same thing and nothing went wrong…it’s surely the best and most delicious sponge cake I’ve ever had.
