Mo+ Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo


Current Exhibition Board

Animation can be alive in reality by the magical hand of film production designer like Mr. Yohei Taneda ! His current exhibition of Studio’s Ghibli “Karigurashi no Arrietty” is “the hot must do things this Summer”. He has created the world of “Little People” who live under the floorboard of normal people’s house inside 1,200 sq.m. exhibition space. As soon as I walked inside the exhibition space, I felt like I was the little people and part of Arrietty’s family, everything’s so real and approacble, I could feel that the little people were actually living there.

Entrance of Mo+

After touring Arrietty’s house, Taneda took us to the garden where Arrietty like to play, then, the mood of exhibition changes to be more like simple with his previous productions photographes and Arrietty’s production plans and sketches.
I bought original soundtrack CD which produced by Cecile Corbel and some postcards as souvenirs, I like all the songs in the movie because it reminds me of my childhood and also encourage me to live on strong with positive motivation.

The exhibition will last until October 3rd. and ticket can be purchased at Mo+ ( 1,200 yen) for access information, please visit

Neputa Festival in Hirosaki


I went to Neputa festival last weekend. There are three places in Aomori Neputa festival,Hirosaki,Goshogawara and Aomori.
Hirosaki Neputa festival is quiet. People haul on a rope with saying “Yayado”.The neput float panel was really big so it was very difficult to haul under the street because high street lamps.
When the neputa float panel touched it the festival people care for it much more. When it pass throw under the street lamp. People clap the hands a lot. It was excited.

My Sweet Day


I love having sweet especially ice cream and all kinds of cake, I can even have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a day. Well, I actually did it few days ago. Hidemi Sugino in Kyobashi ( just off Ginza district) was my first stop, this pastissier found in 1973 and the owner chef Hidemi Sugino become well-known when he won the world pastissier championship in 1991. The waiting line’s started even before the shop opens each day. Of course, when I got there, I had to que up, once the store opened, everyone walked inside in order to select the choice of cake or kind of sweet then proceed to a seat. Unfortunately, picture inside the facility is not allowed in order to preserve the quatity of time of each customers to enjoy the taste of each cake. However, I managed to find picture of the cake I chose, which both were famous and could only be eaten inside only. The rich taste of quality ingredient was mouthful and worthed all I paid for….Next, I stoped by Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum to see the exhibition of Karigurashi no Arrietty and had lunch at cafe Hai, for dessert, I chose Vietnamese Flan, which used lots of contense milk and coffee for the caramel with crush ice, it’s very refreshing after a long walk.
Then I went to Shibuya for the sake of having Shoto sponge cake, I knew this Shoto Cafe by watching Japanese TV show, that the man in yellow suit walks along the area to search for cheap and delicious food that is recommened by each place he visited. For the Shibuya district, he ended up at Shoto Cafe and had toasted Shoto cake with fresh whip cream, of course I ordered the same thing and nothing went wrong…it’s surely the best and most delicious sponge cake I’ve ever had.

Fine French dinner with a wonderful viewing!


I went to a brand-new French restaurant “Chez Tomo” in Ginza which I had really wanted to visit for a long.
The restautant was located on the 11th floor so I was stirred with that beautiful night view of Ginza just as I came in there.
They had only one kind of course menu for 5980yen,however,there were many choices for the relish and main dish in the course. I was puzzled which to choose : )
All dishes were very beautiful, like an art! Especially,the dish of vegetable was amazing.Look at the picture!
There were so many kinds of fresh vegetable on a plain white plate and each vegetable was cooked in an each different way. I really enjoyed it : )

Department store Maruhiro in Kawagoe-city


custard cream, chocolate cream, macya cream and fresh cream
I went to “Maruhiro” in Kawagoe-city in Saitama. It’s very famous local department store in Kawagoe.
Kawagoe-city is my home town so I often go there Since when I was a child.
There is one of populer TV program for women in the moning.
Every week day they have a guest and they ask a recommend food to the guest.
Most of the time it’s sweets. And they call them “Omeza”.
Now, ”Maruhiro” has a “Omeza fair”!!! so you can imagine how wonderful the ”Omeza fair” is!
I got some cream buns which I really wanted since very long time ago.  When I found it I was very happy : )

It’s not big size but heavy more than I thought. It means a lot of cream inside ; )
I heard the cream bun is the most populer in this fair.

It should be keeping in a refrigerator. When I had the first bite, the cream is cool and sweet then I loved it ♪
Good bun for this season.

covered like a humberger
full of chocolate cream

サイズはそんなに大きくないのに、重みがあり持った感覚でクリームがたっぷりと詰まっているのが分かりました。 冷蔵保存の為、食べた瞬間に中の冷たくて美味しいクリームが口の中でとろけ、柔らかいパンの生地と融合していて、とても美味しかったです。 夏にはぴったりのクリームパンです♪
