Andon’s 7 years anniversary party. あんどん 創業記念日


It was a nice party. I made Okonomiyaki,Yakisoba,curry,so on. I think everybody eat a lot and they looks like full. Some guests gave me nice presents. I was very happy. I am really appreciate for all. One men came from Austraria with an iPad who has a same birthday with Andon. I was sueprised it. He gave me a nice wine for me. I was surprised him again.

I was thinking every year when I opened Andon. I looked up Andon in the night, I decided I have to work harder. I couldn’t guess I can have a kind of this day.
Thak you very much all of my guests during 7 years.

本当にありがとうございました。この日を毎年迎える度に七年前のあの夜、前の家の柳の木の前に立ち、建物を見上げて、まるでこれから心中する様な気持ちを味わったのを思いだします。あれから6回、毎年今ここにこうしていられる幸せを噛みしめています。今年はまた、沢山の行燈で以前働いてくれていたスタッフが、手土産を片手に集まってくれました。中には、素敵な名刺をもっていたり、皆さん立派な社会人になって活躍しています。常々思うのは、旅立った後も、こうして集まってくれるスタッフに育て上げられる社長にならなければと思っていたので、こうして実を結ぶことができて本当に感謝の気持ちで一杯です。モロッコ旅行のお土産のルーで作ったカレーも好評でした。美味しいものを作って、皆の笑顔がみられて、美味しいお酒も飲めて、最高に幸せ。感謝。 ナマステ。

Tokyo Tokunai Pass ( Tokyo Metropolitan District Pass)


The Route Map that the pass is covered

The second ticket used to go around Tokyo and to go back to my house
 Yesterday, I went shopping in Tokyo by using Tokyo Tokunai Pass ( one day pass for using JR East trains) which covers 23 wards of Tokyo. From my house, which is located outside of Tokyo, I needed to pay extra. The total was 1140 Yen, only a round trip ticket to Shinjuku alone is 900 yen. So, I think it was worth to buy Tokunai Pass. However, If you purchase at a station where the route map has already covered, it’s only 730 Yen for adult and 360 Yen for children
  You can purchase the pass at Midori No Madoguchi (Jr Ticket Center) or at the automatic ticket machine, which English is available. So, going around Tokyo is not the big problem anymore and also you don’t have to worry about expensive transportation fee and get in trouble with your budget…^.^
   Let’s explore Tokyo with Tokunai Free Pass…..
Ps. For more information, please check
  การเดินทางในโตเกียวจะไม่เป็นเรื่องยากอีกต่อไป ถ้าคุณใช้ตั๋ว Tokunai Pass สำหรับเดินทางภายในกรุงโตเกียวโดยรถไฟสายยามาโนเตะและสายชูโอวตามรูปข้างบน ท่านสามารถซื้อตั๋วได้ที่เครื่องจำหน่ายตั๋วอัตโนมัติหรือที่เคาเตอร์บริการ มิโดริโนะมาโดะกูจิ ก็ได้ ราคาตั๋วผู้ใหญ่ 730 เยน เด็ก 360 เยน เท่านั้น!!!! ไปค้นพบสิ่งใหม่ๆในโตเกียวภายในหนึ่งวันที่โตเกียวกับตั๋วโทคุในกันเถอะนะคะ

I would like to thank everybody at Andon Ryokan for, again, a very nice stay in Tokyo in April !

Also thank you for helping me buy tickets for Ghibli Museum and Kaikoo Popwave Festival, sending heavy books home, Italian pasta, directing me to cozy neighbourhoods in Tokyo … and being a great help when I had to organize an extra week in Japan because of the Iceland Volcano-cloud, so I could spend another great week in my favorite ryokan in Kyoto … and of course Tokyo. Glad I finally got some time to explore the city… just perfect :-) …….

Korean Foods Paradise  ソウルフード天国


I went to Korea last weekend for Japan promotion with a lot of associations.  It was  the first time and I was surprised a lot in there.  The first time country is always give me something good things so I couldn’t stop traveling.  When I arrived the airport, I saw a big river where was looks like clean water.
The river wide was about 1 kirro meters and the both river side had a nice parks.  It looks like really peaceful.   I stayed in Miondon area.  There were a lot of small shops that especial was cosmetic shops.  The young stuff was salling  cosmetics with baker.  The price was really intersting.  I was understanded why women want to go there.  I had only two nighs but I eat a lot of deliciouse foods in there. I had inspired them.  I dislike spicy foods with garlik but the restaurant had a normal taste some.  I was enjoyed them a lot.  I want to go Korea again.

Yakiniku, Chige,
Soup of codfish.

Back to the Basic @ Shibamata


When I first came here, I loved watching Japanese TV show especially restaurant and travel guide show. One day, I turned on TV and saw couple famous Japanese stars went touring little town and introduced a local famous Tempura restaurant. Since I am also Tempura’s fan, I really wanted to know where was that place, then I found out that the town is called “Shibamata” or known as Tora san’s city.
Even though, I searched on the Internet under “Shibamata”, there is not many information pop out, However, Tora san was famous Japanese actor in old day because of his series movies.
One year has gone by and I finally went to Shibamata…From Saitama, I took a train on Musashino line then changed to Joban line to Kanamachi Station, from Kanamachi, I took a train on Keisei Kanamachi to Shibamata Station. When I came out, Tora san statue is right in front of the station to welcome all visitors to his historical town.
First I went to Taishakuten temple which was built in 1629, it has been preserved in great condition. Then, I walked behind the temple along the little alley to Yamamoto-Tei, a beautiful Japanese style house of Enotsuke Yamamoto, In 1991 it’s opened to the public to enjoy Japanese garden and tea. Entrance fee is only 100 Yen. All the cafe menu is 500 Yen. Moreover, you can buy combination ticket (550 yen) here for Yamamoto-Tei and Tora san Kinen Museum which just cross the street behind this house.
Cross the street from Yamamoto-Tei is Edo River bank, along the river is bycicle track which will lead to Mizumoto Park. Another interesting thing to see is Negiri no Watashi, the one and last tranditional ferry boat in Tokyo exists, only 400 yen to cross from Shibamata to Matsudo.
After finished sightseeing, I got very hungry, of course, I won’t miss having the famous tempura at “大和家” on Taishakuten-Dori, simple Tendon started from 998 yen….I knew it’s right decision to come all the way here. Then, I tried Nori Dango from Toraya and Cream rollcake from a shop opposite to Toraya which was very delicious and cheap.
Before I left this town, I stopped by a traditional snack and candy shop, As I walked inside, I felt like I was young again, all the things I used to see were all there….Moreover, it’s very cheap and a perfect little souvenirs for kids.
I think it’s one of the best day trip I had in Tokyo, after spending time in the city, it’s good to leave and experience local suburb lifestyle.
วันหยุดทั้งทีไม่รู้ว่าจะได้หยุดอีกเมื่อไหร่ ฉันจึงตัดสินใจไปเที่ยวเมืองชิบามาตะหรือบ้านของโทระซังจากหนังที่มีภาคต่อมากที่สุดในโลกและเป็นที่รักของชาวญี่ปุ่นมากๆ ความตั้งใจของฉันคือจะต้องมาชิมข้าวหน้าเทมปุระชื่อดังที่ออกทีวีเป็นว่าเล่นและชิมดังโงะเจ้าอร่อยโทระยะซึ่งทั้งสองร้านไม่ทำให้ฉันผิดหวังเลยแม้แต่น้อย อาหารสดใหม่รสชาดดีแถมราคาก็ถูกมากๆ อิ่มท้องแล้วก็ต้องไปเที่ยววัดที่ศักดิ์สิทธิ์ในย่านนี้ว่ากันว่าช่วยให้ชาวบ้านรอดพ้นจากการอดยากเมื่อสมัยหลายร้อยปีมาแล้ว จากนั้นก็เดินเลาะซอยข้างวัดไปเรื่อยๆก็จะถึงบ้านยามาโมะโตะซึ่งเปิดให้เข้าชมในราคา 100 เยนต่อท่าน ไหนๆจะมาชมสวนและบ้านแบบญี่ปุ่นแท้ๆแล้วก็อย่าลืมสั่งชาเขียวหรือขนมถั่วแดงร้อนมาทานขณะเพลิดเพลินกับวิวสวนสวยๆ บรรยากาศร่มรื่นและเงียบสงบจนไม่นึกว่ายังอยู่ในโตเกียว
