I went to Kamakura this Monday with my friend. It was crowded very much because of Golden Week. You can see how much crowded from the picture
First we went to restrant for the lunch. All were very delicious in the dish from the vegetables in Kamakura.
Please try Kamakura-vegetables when you go there!
And then we went to the “Tsuruoka Hachiman-gu” to see the sprout of the ginkgo tree.
At the left of its stairway stood a 1000-year old ginkgo tree, which was uprooted by a storm in the early hours of March 10, 2010. I am very sorry about it but new sprouts are growing up! I hope that there are growing up very well.
Do you know that there is very famouse power spot
Next, we went to Yuigahama beach and walked on the beach. It was not cold weather so we enjoyed at there! We went to the bar near the beach because we had become tired walking too much!
This bar was in front of the beach so it was very nice location and had drinking a lot :p
After drinking, we went to see a huge statue of Buddha. He makes me calm. I took many pictures of buddha from various angles. I set my mobile-phone screen in the stand-by display of buddha! hehehe
It takes about one and half hour from the Andon to Kamakura and it’s quite different from Tokyo. Also we went to Yokohama after visit to there.
It’s near the Yokohama so I recommend to visit to Yokohama as well
It’s typical Dutch things.
Thank you very much stayed in the Andon and great time with us!
Please have a safe trip.
We hope to see you in the future!!
First of all, I have to introduce myself, I am Machiko, half-Thai/Japanese student from Thailand. Currently, I have been studying Japanese and also working part-time at Andon. After I have been here for over a year, I would like to share my intercross-cultural experience with you through the place that I have been to.
Today`s diary, I would like to introduce SCAI The Bathhouse, which is located in Yanaka district, SCAI is contemporary art gallery that is famous for introducing Japanese`s Avant-Garde Artists as well as welcome the world`s exceptional artists to exhibit their works in Japan.
Few weeks ago, I finally went to SCAI to see the exhibition of Thai^Film-Maker, Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL, “NATIVE LAND” ..This exhibition has brought in me the attention of Thai history back in the period of Communists Era in Thailand.
I think even in Japan, young generation do not pay enough attention to the current politic or economy situation which is unfortunate, as well as Thailand. I think it was very worth to visit SCAI on that day.
If you would like to go to SCAI, please take JR Yamanote to Nippori Station, South Exit and walk through Yanaka Cementary for 6 minutes, the gallery will be on right side.
For more information on current exhibition, please go to www.scaithebathhouse.com
Flower always has an impact in everyone`s life especially our Andon`s guests. Today`s morning, I met one little guest `Isabella` chan, Her pure childish smile remines me of the virgin Lily and her charm is like the Goldren Sun Daisy….
One more time that I had a chance to arrange flower for Andon, while our boss is always, I carefully took time to select the flower, I thought of that little girl. I wish the beautiful flowers will make your day shine and bright like the Sun, Also beautiful and memorable like the beauty of Lily.
