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!!!

Fuurin

2010.07.04

The hot and wet days are here in Tokyo.
We displayed Fuurin(wind bell) in a lounge to avoid this muggy weather..!
Many beautiful antique things are displayed everywhere in Andon and these Fuurin are also Japanese antique.I really like the lovely red color : )
I hope these Fuurin make us more confortable in wet rainny season.

梅雨を迎え、暑くてじめじめした毎日が続きます。
少しでも過ごしやすく、、と祈りつつ、ラウンジに風鈴を飾りました。
行燈の館内には数々の珍しい骨董品が至る所に飾られています。この風鈴ももちろんアンティークです。可愛らしい真っ赤な風鈴たちを眺めながら、ひと時でも外のムシムシを忘れ心地よく過ごしていただけたら、と思います : )
