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..!

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.
Wish my dream with come true!
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.
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!!!
