Summer Trip Part 2


I visited to Kamo shrine in this time in Kyoto. Kamo shrine has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
There is very calm and nice atmosphere. Shinto priest explained me politely about this shrine and history and it was good experience. After that I walked down for Kamo river side. There are many riverside restaurants and they open balconies looking out to the river. I saw Maiko-san when I walked small street and she is very beautiful!
I went to Arashiyama which is district on the western outskirts of Kyoto. It also refers to the mountain across the Ōi River, which forms a backdrop to the district.
It was my fast time to visit to there! There are also many temple and shrine so we visited to some places.
Main street is a lot of survenior shop,restaurant and cafe. It makes me fun and I spend time a lot at there.
I like green tea sweets so I enjoyed a lot of sweets in kyoto :)
Kyoto has a lot of attractive places so I do not have time to visiting Kyoto for few days.
I want to visit less than once a year and know about Kyoto very much!!

Amazing Ninja restaurant


I went to Ninja restaurant in Akasaka. Amusement restaurants such as Ninja, Alice, prison,etc. are very popular lately in Japan. Eapecially this Ninja restaurant is high in favor with foreign visitors and locals. I fanally could make a reservation and visit there!

When we went into the entrance,one Ninja appeared and led us to a table. It was a rather long and labyrinth of way.We couldn’t see around very well and a small river was suddenly showed up.The Ninja recited a charm and a small bridge was coming down from the ceiling…!Few minutes later,we finally reached a table in a private room.

The Ninja took charged of our table and explained many things about restaurant and their dishes.It was wonderful because he performed Ninja perfectelly during our stay and could speak few foreign languages.
Food was also wonderful.We enjoyed not only the tast, but also their performance.Each dishes had some trick so it was like a magic show!
When we had some dessert, one female Ninja came in our room.She was also very friendly and showed us two amazing real magic.We were so surprised at her skill and clapped with cheers!

We entirely enjoyed for two hours.

I didn’t know that Japanese Ninja had so many abilities such as languages and magic!
I want to visit there again to see them : )

“1st acoustic album”Is this the day?”
I’m a huuuuge fun of “HOOBASTANK”, they are from U.S.A and I went to their gig last night with my friend!They play rock music.We have been their gigs many times but this time they had “acoustic live” at Ebisu Liquidroom.

It was futastic!! Usually, some audiences are going to crazy but this time I felt so romantic, it was beautiful and I loved it : )

But of course I love it when they are singing loudly!!
The last part (encore) they had back to rock!!

If you have any chances to see their gig, please join them! Definitely you love it. Like I did.

 Thank you very much “HOOBASTANK”!!

Summer Trip Part 1


I went to Osaka and Kyoto for 2nights 3days trip with friend. It takes from Tokyo to Shin-Osaka about 2 hours half by Shinkansen. I had been to Osaka when I was child but I did not remember at there very well so it likes first time to visit in Osaka in my life.
I ate okonomiyaki,takoyaki, kushikatu…and so on when I arrived in Osaka soon.
We did not have any plan so we asked recommend places to local people.
They were very friendly and got impression of Osaka direct ;)
For sightseen, we went to Umeda, Doutonbori, Tutenkaku tower and Shin-sekai.
Shin-senkai is same as Ameyoko street at Ueno in Tokyo.
I went to top level in Tutenkaku tower and it was nice view.
Also I saw a lot of “BILIKEN” that is simbol of Osaka and like a god.
My stomach was little tired for eating too much but I like Osaka very much!!
I want to visit to there again!!
