When I was cleaning a lounge,I found a pleasant scene.A couple,Donielle and Teunis from Netherland had Sushi lunch in the terrace.He bought a box of sushi and some beer at a supermarket near Andon.I thought they were good at spending a relaxing time : )After eating,they were reading in the sun for a while.
Pleasant season has arrived!

寒さが(やっと)和らぎ、今日は本当に気持ちのよいお天気でした。
昼間ラウンジを掃除しているとき、今日の天気にピッタリな素敵な光景を目にしたので思わずシャッターを押しました。
オランダからやってきたDonielleさんとTeunisさん。暖かなテラス席で二人仲良く大きなパックに入ったお寿司を囲み、楽しそうにランチをしていました。ビールを片手にのんびりと:)
ガイドブックと地図からほんのひと時目を離し、こんなリラックスした時間を過ごすのも旅のよい思い出になるのではないか、と感じました。
食後はお日様の下で二人でのんびり読書。ますます素敵です。

スイスからやってきた素敵なカップル、AurelienさんとMadlainaさんよりとてもとても可愛らしいイースターのチョコレートを戴きました!
あまりにも可愛いデザインなので、普段オーナーの所有するアンティークのコレクションを陳列しているラウンジの棚に仲間入りです。見るたびに癒されます。

A memory of cherry blossom

2010.04.08

There is a small park near my parents’ house. It called “Kasumi Park”.
I used to go there after school with my friends and play until it’s getting dark.

Now, it’s a full of cherry blossoms and it reminds me the day of my entering primal school. On that day, I took a picture with my classmates and behind us there were beautiful cherry blossoms just like today. It’s been 22 years..?? so long time ago. How time flies, I can’t believe it !!

Today, I saw the 1st grade students. They were on the way to home from entering ceremony. They shoulder a new “randoseru” which is a bag pack for primal school students. It’s common in Japan. We usually had red colored for girls and black for boys but now a days, there are many colors! I saw light blue, pink and yellow. I wonder if it going to be more colorful. I’m the 1st girl from the right (sorry, it’s fuzzy…).

私の両親の家の近くに小さな公園があります。「かすみ公園」という名前です。
放課後に友達と暗くなるまでよく遊びました。

その公園は今、桜の花でいっぱいです。そしてその光景は小学校の入学式を思い出します。
その日に、同級生の友達と一緒に写真を撮りました、そして私達の後ろには今日と同じ様な綺麗な桜がありました。あれからもう22年?? が経とうとしています。そんな前になるなんて信じられません!!

今日、入学式から家に帰る途中の一年生を見かけました。皆、新しいランドセルを背負っています。日本の小学生は、大抵それを使います。昔は女の子が赤、男の子は黒が普通でしたが、最近ではいろんな色があります!水色、ピンクそして黄色を見ました。この先、もっと色が増えるのでしょうか。私は一番右の女の子です。(ぼやけていてすみません)

Honeymoon in Japan

2010.04.08



We have always known, that we will spent our honeymoon in Japan,
when we would get married one day.
In summer 2009 it became true and we celebrated our marriage.
We saved enough money and started to plan our trip to the
land of the smile!
We spent 12 nights in Tokyo (our favorite city) and
9 nights in Kyoto. From there we made daytrips to Nikko, Kamakura,
Hiroshima and Osaka.
11 nights we stayed in the Andon Ryokan and we felt very
comfortable. It was an adventure to sleep so near to the floor,
but so we felt like real Japanese! :)
We found a new hobby and attended the jakkuzi every evening.
For me, an interior designer, the hole house was a lucky strike. I
loved the details how to implement japanese folkways in modern
ways.
What was the best of the Andon Ryokan?
The best were all the nice and very obliging persons of the
Andoncrew! We felt like at home and very welcome! Thank you all!!
What was your favorite place of interest?
It is very hard to decide for one of all these very lovely places,
but our favorite was the Yanaka district near the Uenopark. There we
found the traditionell Japan close to the busy Tokyo.
Now, back in Germany, we got a lot of delightful impressions and
we will never forget our time in Japan, especially our time in Tokyo -
in the Andon Ryokan. If we ever will come back we are going to
stay by YOU!

Holger and Nadine from germany

Thank you very much for staying with us,Holger and Nadine!
I’m really happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Japan : )
I also enjoyed talking with you in a lounge during your stay.
I hope I will visit your beautiful country,Germany someday and also hope to see you
again here in Japan : )
We are waiting for you!
Thank you very much.

OHANAMI

2010.04.07

I went to “Chidoriga-Fuchi Park” after finish working the other day for seeing the cherry blossoms and it was really beautiful! There is close to the Yasukuni shrine and were a lot of people.
It was my first time to visit at there and really nice and recommend place to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
I went to night time and illuminated them by LED lights.

千鳥ヶ淵公園へ行ってきました。靖国神社とともに初めて行きましたが、LEDライトでライトアップされていて、趣があり本当にきれいでした。

I was day off and back home yesterday, because I bought new pink car and just came here!
Car color is same as cherry blossoms and it was good for driving to picnick day yesterday, so I went to OHANAMI (picnick) with mother and Leo.
My home town is little far from Tokyo but there are many cherry trees and cole flowers.
The cherry trees are in full bloom and it was awesome!!
We bought many foods at the vendor and ate lunch under the tree :) After that we went to drive.
My favorite season is spring so it makes me really happy…

今回の休日は実家に帰り新しい桜色の車でドライブをしながら、母とレオと一緒にお花見をしました!
桜だけでなく、土手には菜の花も一面に広がっていて、本当にきれいでした。私の実家は熊谷なので、東京から少し離れていますが、もし時間に余裕があれば、田舎で東京とはまた違った春を見つけてみてはいかかでしょうか。
