I went to Yanaka area! I like this area because there are many interesting cafe, restaurant, shopping arcade and cemetery. It is little old town but really nice atmosphere. I went to the curry restaurant that Ryoko-chan had recommended in the this blog before. It likes Chinese herbal medicine curry…. sounds so wired… but it was nice taste and made me warm and healty!! Shop owner was friendly and good service! You can get free dessert if you reserved the seat in advance ;) After that I went to cafe and had a really nice coffee! There are a lot of old books and spend time as much as I want!  I had a good time after working! One more information: You can go this area from Andon about 15 min by bus. It is not so far from here so please explore when you visit to the Andon!
以前、涼子ちゃんがブログでお勧めしていた薬膳カレーのお店へ行ってきました。とても食べやすく、おいしかったです。スタッフの人もとても親切で、サービス満点でした。予約をするとデザートのサービスがあるのもよかったです♪そのあと、books & cafe BOUSINGOT というカフェへ行きました。古本がたくさん置いてあり、コーヒーもとてもおいしく、自分の時間をゆっくりと持てるので、本当によかったです!谷中は行燈からもバスで15分前後で行けるので本当にお勧めです。

Mr.Soyu is a tea master and gives lessons in tea ceremony at Andon.
Many Andon guests join our ceremony every week and they really enjoy it, though it is bit difficult for beginners. I think it is caused by his placid, friendly personality : ) I really respect and like him.

He has a beautiful traditional tea room in his house and I went there to take lesson today.
As is commonly known, we kneel in the formal seiza position on the tatami floor in ceremony, however, we sat on chairs today because one person had a lower-back pain. Mr. Soyu had a special tea table with tatami mat which he created by hisself,,,! It was amazing!
I enjoyed hid lesson without the numbness in my legs,,! : )

We will have a ceremony this Thursday as well and it’s going to be the last one of this year.
We very much hope you will join us!


なかなか初心者には難しい茶道ですが、外国からいらした皆さんが毎週不思議なくらい和気あいあいと楽しくお茶を体験されています。 理由はきっと、皆さんのノリの良さ、プラス、何といっても宗遊先生の親切で大らかな人柄のせいだと感じます。言葉や文化の違いを意識するよりずっと以前に本来大切にしなくてはならない「人間力」を先生から学びます。

I went to Shibuya today to shopping and I was walking around Mark City. It has some nice shops and restaurant and cafe and also office and hotel area. Very close to Shibuya station.
Suddenly I noticed that live performance outside then I followed that sound.

It was a simple band base, piano, drams and vocal. They were playing Christmas songs in jazz style.

sorry but a light is a hindrance.
It was cold but many people stopped to listening their music. The band played 5or 6 songs.
The vocalist has beautiful and powerful voice.
I wanted listen more but she was lightly dressed it looks like a chinese dress.
I thought they should be finished soon but she didn’t look cold at all, she is professional!!

もっと長く聴いていたかったのですが、ボーカルの彼女は中国ドレスのような薄いドレスを着ていたので早く終わらせた方がいいのにと思っていました。ですが、彼女は歌っている時は全く寒そうにみえませんでした。 さすがプロは凄いですね!!

When I found an event like this unexpectedly I feel lukey.

Girls Party in Ginza


           I had a girls party with local and korean friends last Sunday! It was also secret Masami’s birthday party. We resereved restaurant which was recommended from Yuka before this bolg. We went to “Hole Hole” in Ginza and had Pot food with a lot of vegetable and seafoods in there. It was so nice taste and we really enjoyed the meals, drinking and chatting. After dinner…. It was surprise time to Masami… and restaurant staff was bringing birthday cake and we sang birthday song for her and gave her birthday presents!!… but we realized that it was not written Masami! It was “Kanako” but we still sang it… but  we had big laughing during singing… because it was also mistook… it was not “Happy birthday ” It was “Happy Wedding to Kanako!” We laughed a lot because she is still single and not engagement…(^^; We asked the staff and restaurant staff made mistake it. We really got laughing from them and big big surprised(^^)  Restaurant staff apologized for us a lot and serviced free drink!! It was so fun accident and we enjoyed it! We had a really nice time!! We will her birthday party at there next year!… maybe it will be her wedding party? Anyway Happy Birthday Masami ;)
この間の日曜地元の友達と韓国の友達を集めて、女子会をしました!女子会でしたが、友達のひとりであるマサミが誕生日だったので、サプライズパーティーも企画していました。場所は以前ユカちゃんがブログでお勧めしていた銀座にある hole hole というお店です。雰囲気も良く、頼んだ料理もすべておいしく、とっても良かったです。いよいよサプライズの時間となり、お店の人に協力してもらい、ケーキを出してもらいました。ケーキが出て、みんなでプレゼントを渡しながら、バースデーソングを歌いながら、マサミという文字がカナコになっていることに気づきましたが、特に気にせず歌い続けていたら、途中からみんな吹き出してしまいました。なぜならそこには、Happy Birthday ではなくHappy Weddingとなっていたのです。マサミはまだ独身であり、名前も間違っていて、何一つ当たっていませんでした。お店の人へ確認したところ、お店の間違えだとわかり、またまた大笑い!ある意味、本当にサプライズでした☆お店の人からとても深い謝罪を頂き、なんとフリードリンクまで頂いてしまいました。私たちにとっては、とても忘れられない最高のパーティーになりました!来年の誕生会もここでやろうとなりましたが、、、ウェディングパーティーになるかもしれませんね?(笑)

I have finally found a fine Kushikatsu restaurant in Tokyo.
Kushikatu is a typical Osaka food and I really like it because it’s quite cheap, simple, homely and very tasty!
There are some in Tokyo, but it’s very different from real one. They are too cool,,!?
I finally found one in Kameido where is one of the old part of Tokyo. It didn’t actually looked stylish at all, but their dishes were beautiful, very Osaka-style, cheap, simple, homely and very tasty!
I really enjoyed it : ) Also I tried Hoppy which is cooktail with whisky and soda for the first time and I liked it very much. I normally don’t have sweet alcohol, but it’s an exception, It was very tasty and went with Kushikatu very much.  I felt like go to Osaka,,!


もう一つ。よく居酒屋で目にしつつ飲んだことのなかった「ホッピー」を初めて飲みました。知りませんでした、こんなに美味しいとは。甘いお酒が好きではないのですが、これは別です。そして串カツにもぴったりでした : )
