Christmas present


I have just finished drawing picture of my grand mother’s house in Kyoto.
I have drawn many pictures and gave them to my grand mother since I was a child, however, this is the first time to draw her house and her beautiful garden : )

I’m going to look for a nice frame and send it to her as a Christmas present!
I hope she will like it : )

Yebisu Garden Place


I went to “Yebisu Garden Place” tonight.  Look at these pictures!!

They are having beautiful decolations. It will last till the 10th of Jan 2011.
If you go out near Ebisu at night, you should go there!!

I wanted to stay more but it was cold so I went inside. There are many shops and restaurants.
you can walk on a red carpet.
The end of the red carpet there is a gorgeous and huge chandelier!! It’s from Baccarat. It’s glittering.          赤いカーペットが敷いてあり、その上をあるいて奥まで入るとその先にはなんとバカラのクリスタルでできた大きなシャンデリアにたどり着きます!!素晴らしい輝きです。  Yuka

     I walked from Shibuya to Omotesando yesterday! There are starting a lot of christmas illumination in tokyo! One of famouse illumination spot is Omotesando street! I went to shopping at Shibuya, Harajyuku and Omotesando! It was good for walking distance and  able to have fun duling shoppin thruough these illuminations! After that I went to ” A to Z cafe”. I really wanted to go there since knew there from guest’s guide book. Location is Aoyama and it close from Omotesando station. It was very cute and cozy place so I could have big rest after busy shopping! Also there is small garaly in cafe and we can see Nara Michi’s painting. I had dinner and sweets in there :) I really enjoyed meal and this cafe’s atmosphere!  I want to go there againg after shopping!!
昨日、表参道へ買い物に行ってきました。渋谷から原宿、表参道まで歩いて、青山の方まで歩いて来ました。前に行燈のお客様から見せて頂いたガイドブックの中に「A to Z Cafe」というお店を知ってからずっと行きたいと思っていたので、買い物途中でそこに寄りました。お店の中はとってもかわいく、奈良美智さんの絵がたくさん飾ってあり、雰囲気がとてもよく、ゆっくりと過ごすことができました。買い物の後だったので、とてもお腹がすいていて、ご飯を食べてそのあとに、お約束のデザートを楽しみました。食べ物もとてもおいしく、本当によかったです!今は表参道のイルミネーションもとてもきれいで、歩きながら買い物するのが楽しく時間が過ぎるのがあっという間でした。次回は涼子ちゃんのお勧めカフェへ行きたいと思います!!

Kawagoe is my hometown. It’s in Saitama prefecture and it’s not so far from Tokyo, it takes about 1 hour by train. It was so beautiful day so I went out to see the central city. Usually, there are many tourists but in the morning it had very heavy rain so I didn’t see many people. This is “Tokino-kane”, it means “Bell of the time” so it tells the time.
There are beautiful old houses and those make the nice view. I often see people drawing the city. 


  I had lunch at “Epuron-tei”. They have a menu of Sweet potato because Kawagoe is famous for Sweet potatos. This menu contain sweet potato each dish.”Epuron” means “Apron” in Japanese.

I had this at “Epuron-tei”
After lunch, I saw some souvenirs shops. There is a street that has many old style Japanese sweet shops, shrine and temple but I enjoyed only this area that day.
And also there are many Ice cream and Dango shops in Kawagoe.
I see many people eating something on the street. You can try sweet potato flavored ice cream, it’s good. Dango is my favorite Japanese sweet that is made from rice powder. Mix with hot water, make a small balls with hands and barbecue. Each stick has 4 or 5 dango and dipped with special sauce! There are many typesof sauce and I prefer soy sauce and mitarashi(very sweet)
1本60円というお手頃な値段で、食べられるのは嬉しいですね! もっちりしていてとても美味しいです。 
There is a dango shop next to Tokino-kane. The shop is a very traditional and has long history, very famous in Kawagoe. Owner was baking dango and made good smell too. It’s just 60 yen per stick, reasonable!

Dango shop

Traveling is very fun but walking around hometown also very nice.
I really enjoyed the day.  旅行するのは楽しいですが故郷を歩くのもとても良いものです。満喫しました:)
