44th Edo Riverside Firework Festival 2010

2010.07.29

Last year I experienced Sumida Riverside Firework Festival with my friend Yoko. This year, Ryoko san, one of Andon staff invited me to visit Kanamachi-Shimabata to see firework on Edo Riverside which was wonderful experience for me because, last year, I couldn’t see the firework clearly because of expressway had blocked the scenery. Thus, I chose to go to Edo Riverside Firework Festival because I knew that nothing would block the view of firework. As you remembered that I went to this town before to have famous tempura restaurant and saw Japanese style house and enjoyed tea and dessert. I arrived there early so I walked around and got sweet redbean dango from Toraya which I thought it’s the most famous, but then Ryoko san told me that the most famous one was the other store, I was disappointed that I didn’t try that store’s dango.
The firework started at 7.20 and last for 1 hour, the impact firework and character firework like Doraemon could be seen. We bought beer and yatai food like yakisoba and takoyaki to enjoy while looking at the firework. This experience will always stay with me as good memory. Japan Summer Firework festivals are definately the best of  on my Japan’s Summer Must Do List…:)

I went to Odaiba where is large artificial island in Tokyo Bay across the Rainbow Bridge from central Tokyo.
Every summer there is a big festival by Fuji-TV company.
In this year’s event is “United States Of Odaiba”  from 17th of July to 31st of August.
Please check this web page and you can image what is there happen.

I recommend to visit there if you have time ;)
Odaiba is one of my favorite place in Tokyo. There are a lot of shopping place, restaurant and nice design building.

You can go there by Yurikamome line from Shinbashi station and across the Rainbow Bridge :)

Have a fun!!!


 先日、お台場へ遊びに行きました。今、「お台場合衆国」というフジテレビで行われているイベントがあります。小さい子から大人まで、たくさんの人がいましたが、お祭りのようで楽しかったです。
お台場は私の大好きな場所の一つです!
たくさんのショッピング場所、レストラン、素敵な建築物がたくさんあって、1日楽しめます♪
ぜひ、夏休み中に一度行ってみてはいかがでしょうか。

Tokyo’s Summer Hot Spot

2010.07.27

It’s so hot but still I love to get out and enjoy Summer as much as I can. However, after walking all day long my feet are sored and heavy, when I thought of the place I can rest my feet, Tokyo Midtown’s feet resting spot camp up in my mind.

Either catch subway on Hibiya line to Roppongi Station or Chiyoda line to Nogizaka Station, before I knew it I saw this small man-made river-like where we could rest our feet in 15c water and massage with the small rocks, all free-of charge. This service is located near 21-21 Design Space just off Tokyo Midtown Gallerie Bldg. and available from 3pm-8pm daily except Tuesday until August 28th.
Don’t forget to prepare tissue or small towel to dry up your happy feet otherwise you can rent a towel (100 yen/towel)….Also, the staff told me that around 7.30-8 pm. there is a water dance show and small firework…………

So, if you go shopping around Roppongi-Tokyo Midtown, Don’t miss the change to relax and enjoy late afternoon with beer while resting your feet in the chill water….:)

KAWAII

2010.07.26

本当に可愛い。
彼を見た瞬間、あの4階の階段に飾ってある象のおもちゃに乗せてみたいと思った。
やっぱり、ピッタリ。
カメラを向けたら何とポーズまでとってくれた。
絵になるなあ。
写真を撮り終わったら、どうやら忙しかったらしく、サッサとご両親の元へ。
撮影会はほんの3分間程であえなく終了。

It was a very cute boy.
He got on my antique wooden toy. When I focus his face with a camera he made a pose soon.
Then he came to back  his parents place soon which was only three minutes.

By the way

Thank you very much taking a nce pose for me.

I and my old toy were very happy.

Beautiful Parfait!

2010.07.25

I have really like to have a “parfait” at coffee shop since I was a child.
First of all,it’s very lovely and sightely,and what’s more,I can enjoy many flavors at once : )

“a la campagne” is one of my favorit cafe and I found the best parfait (!?) there the other day.
The name was “Honey fruits parfait” which was their limited seasonal menu.

It was very different from others which I had have eaten before. Many kinds of fresh fruits,vanila ice cream and arlgray flavored jerry were in a glass.Especially,the jerry was so tasty..!
I really enjoyed it with a big cup of coffee after having a fine cold pasta dish : )

私は子供の頃からよくレストランや喫茶店で「パフェ」を注文します。

まず、見た目に好きです。大きなグラスに入ったきれいなパフェが自分の席に運ばれてくると、いまだにわくわくします。そして食べていくうちに色んな味が次々に登場する点もポイントです。

神戸に本店のある「アラカンパーニュ」というカフェが最近一番大好きなカフェです。

落ち着いていて、程よくカジュアルで、何よりケーキやパスタがとっても美味しいです。
先日このお店で”目からうろこ”なパフェに出会いました。

夏限定の「ハニーフルーツパフェ」というもので、本当に美味しかったです。
フレッシュなフルーツがとにかくたくさん入っていて、その間にバニラアイスとクッキーと蜂蜜の入ったアールグレイの紅茶のゼリーが混ざっています。このゼリーがとてもさわやかで美味しかったです。
チョコレートソースと生クリームがどっさり入ったいわゆるパフェとは全く違うものですが、暑い夏の時期にはピッタリのパフェだと思いました。
お勧めです!
