Kamakura

2010.05.06


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 ;)

鎌倉へ友達と行ってきました!ゴールデンウィークということもあって、すっごく混んでましたぁ(>_<)!
鶴岡八幡宮の倒れてしまった大銀杏の木とその新芽を見に行きました。パワースポットと言われるだけあって、ここもすごい人人人、、、でもその中で結婚式もしていて、もう何が何だか、、、という感じでしたが、新芽がたくさん出ていて、すっごくうれしくなりました♪

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

天気もよかったので、ビーチでおもいっきりはしゃいでしまいました!(^^)!そのあと、近くのビーチバーで飲みながらリラックス☆ほんと、幸せを感じます!


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

鎌倉といえば、鎌倉の大仏様。いろんな角度からパシャパシャとカメラをとりまくりです。私の携帯の待ち受けも、、大仏様(*^^)v へへへ。


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 :)
東京から鎌倉まで1時間半くらいですし、東京とはかなり違った雰囲気があり、本当にいいところです。私たちは鎌倉の後、横浜に行きました。鎌倉と横浜は近いので、時間があれば横浜で遊ぶのもお勧めです♪

Picnic lunch in a park

2010.05.05

It was the last day of Golden Week and I took a dayoff today : )
I went to the Showa Kinen Park where is one of the most beautiful national park in Tokyo and the vast expanse,about 160 hectare.It’s composed of various areas such as open fild,forest,waterfowl lake,sports area,Japanese garden,pool,barbecue and so on,and what’s more,the flower festival was held there so we could see many beautiful flowers throughout the park : )
We had a small bento-lunch in the open fild as we were seeing many children playing with their family.Yes,it was Children’s day today.They looked so happy,and their smiles also made us happy : )
I brought a really small and simple bento(lunch box),however,we really enjoyed it in the sunshine.
I think it’s the best way to spend a nice lunch time in spring!

ゴールデンウィーク最終日!小さなお弁当を持って立川にある「昭和記念公園」に行ってきました。
国営の公園だけあり、まず想像以上の広さ、自然の多さに驚きました。ちょうどフラワーフェスティバルが開催されていて園内のどこを歩いても美しい植物を見かけ、春を大満喫することが出来ました。お天気もよ過ぎるくらいの快晴!
また、テニスコートやバーベキューエリアなどアクティビティの施設も充実していて、あらゆる世代の人が楽しめる点も魅力だと思いました。「次に来た時には、、」なんて既に次回の計画を立てつつ。
子供から大人まで多くの人がキャッチボールやサッカーを楽しんでいる様子を眺めながら、大きな芝生の広場でお弁当を広げました。お日様の下で自然に囲まれて食べるおにぎりの味は格別です。
本当に大好きな季節です。

Cross Culture Experience

2010.05.02

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

Machiko,

Flower arrangement

2010.05.01



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.

Enjoys!

Machiko,
