Design Day

I joined the Design Tour to be with my colleague for a day.

First, we visited Good Design Marunouchi.

Currently, 50 juries are introducing their best G-Mark winner products here.

Yes, I spotted Haku Accessories.

I can wear gold plated jewelry like a sticker.

First, cut the tape to suitable length, then remove the plastic film, place the jewelry on my skin, wet the paper so that it will stick.

We can buy some of these G-Mark winners’ product at Good Design Store Tokyo by Nohara at KITTE

We continue our trip to Ueno Station, Hard Rock Ueno Station.

Then walked AmeYoko (American Street).

I had a Kebab for lunch.

We stretched to Akihabara to visit Hobby Building, Radio-Kan (Radio House).

We returned to Roppongi to visit Design Hub.

We could get information on other G-Mark winners that is difficult to display the actual product such as urban development.

We did enough exercise for a day.

My friend wants to eat Unagi (eel) for dinner so I took her to my favorite eel shop, Shojikiya, Roppongi.

We continued our coffee, Starbucks Christmas Drink Strawberry Shortcake Frappuccino, at her room.

We often communicate via emails and WhatsApp; it was nice spending time together!

Hope to see you soon again!

G-Mark & JIS Mark

I am handling few missions now.

I visited G-Mark Exhibition which is currently held at Tokyo Midtown Tokyo.

The Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System) was founded in 1957 by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (currently, known as the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) to encourage industrial players to design products and services to enrich the society.

I witnessed many interesting products and services.

in the afternoon I received another mission for foundry and engineering.

I arranged the briefing and dialogue session at Japan Quality Assurance Organization (JQA) on JIS Standards.

The Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) based on the Industrial Standardization Act are national standards intended to ensure the appropriate quality of mining and manufacturing products, provide product information, advance technology, increase productivity, improve the competitive environment, and enhance the interchangeability and compatibility of interfaces.

It was beneficial day but tiring.

It’s Halloween today.

During my absence, my friend stopped by to give me treats!

I surely need sugar rush now!

I texted her, I will not trick you!.

Trick or Treat!

My First Rugby Game and Baseball Tournament Among Six Universities

I went to watch the professional rugby game at Chichibu no Miya Rugby Jo (Prince Chichibu Rugby Stadium), Aoyama, Tokyo.

The match was Suntory Sungoliath vs Hino Red Dolphins.

I was seating at Suntory side; therefore, I bought a cup of beer to support the team.

It was fun to watch because the team that I was cheering, Suntory Sungoliath, won by 50 points.

That wasn’t it.

I could enjoy another game.

The Jingu Dai 2 Kyujo (the Jingu No. 2 Baseball Stadium is next to the rugby stadium.

The baseball game between Tokyo University and Hose University was about to finish (8th inning); as such, we could enter the stadium for free or without a ticket.

This is also my first time to watch Baseball Tournament among Six Universities.

Todai (Tokyo University) lost the game but it was fun to cheer the team.

I’m glad that my friend asked me to join.

After enjoying two games, I returned home to cook for my parents for dinner.
