Seeing is believing.
Snacking Ben’s Cookies (Milk Tea Praline) at GINZA SIX.
I met Ultraman.
There is a Pocket Monster vending machine and guess who is a sales person….
I immediately line this town.
Crab on the street.
Old fashion building with Namako Kabe (Sea Cucumber Wall).
Nice dinner at Shinsai Kuon.
Be careful with Wasabi Edamame (Wasabi young Soy Beans). It really hit you.
All others are also nice.
There was an antique cashier that can work today.
There is a traditional post.
And this is my BGM for a night.
It’s not far from Tokyo; It takes 3:30 hrs.
It’s worth coming
Last week, I visited Kyoto.
First, I visited Galerie Tamenaga.
Mr. Kiyoshi Tamenaga, the owner, has four galeries: Ginza (Tokyo), Osaka, Paris (France) and recently opened Kyoto.
In Kyoto, he refurbished a traditional Japanese moromi (mash / unrefined sake) factory to a galerie for young artists.
The owner welcomes us to visit the galerie just to enjoy admiring paints and the building.
I enjoyed exchanging impressions of each paints with Mr. Kiyoshi Tamenaga.
The building itself is the art.
I found Shoki san (Mr. Shoki) who protects us from evils, bad lucks and illness on the roof; I felt safe.
I will continue more on next blog.
To be continued….
I believe everybody want to enhance their meals at home – Stay Home.
I found star and heart shaped cucumber (1 cucumber) for JPY 158 or USD 1.58 before tax / JPY 171 or USD 1.71 after tax at Precce Premium, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.
COVID cannot take any cultures from us.
Despite the COVID, Sakura blooms in Tokyo.
It has been 10 years since the Great Northern Japan Earthquake.
These are candles to pray for the peace for the lost at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi. Amen.
The night of Tokyo is known for its brightness: neons and signboards.
However, government requested restaurants in Tokyo area to close at 8 pm (last order for food and drinks at 7 pm) during the State of Emergency.
The signboard says
“Due to a request for shortening operation hours
19:00 hrs Last Order
20:00 hrs Close“
Tokyo will be quiet for a month.
Hopefully, the State of Emergency would be lifted in one month.
Tokyo is known for a populated place.
Currently, it’s obviously NOT TOKYO that I know of.
