Dinner at Tsukiji no Sakanaya, Ginza

Last night, we went out for a dinner after the meeting.

We didn’t have any restaurant in particular so we started walking to a busy street.

On the way, he spotted a restaurant.

I couldn’t imagine how the restaurant is because the restaurant is located in the basement so I could not see from the street.

When I entered, I was surprised.

It was still early, before 6, but the restaurant was already occupied.

The restaurant name is Tsukiji no Sakanaya meaning Tsukiji Fish Shop.

The restaurant is operated by a seafood wholesale company that even supplies to department stores.

All dishes are so nice, not only seafood but also vegetables.

I didn’t take any photos of food because it was my first time dining with them; however, I can assure that food is nice.

I even enjoyed talking to them.

Both of them are so cheerful.

One shared he had a surgery by Davinci (Hi-Tech operation machine) recently.

He gets after affect, but he is willing to cope with it by making it as a joke.

Another, he also had a surgery in the past.

Both of them laugh about it and live with it.

I witnessed the effectiveness of laughing.

They continued the life is once. We will live. If we are going to live, better have fun.

Wow they were like two characters from the Bucket List that I just watched on Sunday.

I’m glad I joined a dinner.

I together laughed with them.

Typhoon 19

Typhoon 19 hit Tokyo area on 12 October 2019 at 9 pm.

This typhoon damaged a wide area by causing floods, black outs, etc.

Public transportation operators such as train (JR), metro, flights, etc announced to suspend its operation and store also announced its closure on 12 October 2019 in advance.

This is a new exercise in Japan to avoid creating unnecessary weather refugees.

There are many people affected by this large scaled typhoon.

I hope they can get their normal life back soon.

Customizing Clear Case

I love to check products at 100 yen shop.

I bought 20 g clear case at Can Do Ebisu Store and I need to differentiate the cream/contents between two.

I drew sun and moon with nail polish to indicate one for morning cream and the other for night cream.

I usually transfer to a smaller case to keep it fresh by preventing opening cream jars often.

Typhoon 15

I had a mission to conduct and I started it with a hectic day.

I received 10 companies to participate in Tokyo Game Show and I also organized events such as networking/pitching and tow dialogue sessions with Japanese gaming companies prior to their participation in the trade fair.

Unfortunately, the Day 1 – arrival to Tokyo on 9 September 2019 was hit by Typhoon 15.

Typhoon passed Tokyo in early morning around 3 – 5 am.

Many commuters were affected by Typhoon 15 in the morning of 9 September 2019 because many train stopped its services to avoid passengers’ conferment.

On the other hand, I was worried mission members’ flights get cancelled; nonetheless, I started receiving a news that they safely arrived – I was relieved.

The weather recovered quickly and train operators started the service.

However, my delegates at Narita Airport were not fine.

They reported public transportations were out of service.

I couldn’t believe this because there are many: 2 train lines (JR and Keisei), 3 bus operators (Airport Limousine Bus, Keisei Bus, Access Narita) and taxi.

I thought some will recover by afternoon; but no.

There wasn’t any news on TV or anywhere about losing public transportation in and out of Narita Airport due to tree branches covering rail ways and highways and broken electricity poles.

They ended up staying over night at Narita Airport.

These photos are taken by delegates.

I tried to arrange a bus for them; however, highways were closed…

They took early train to Tokyo and arrived at networking venue.

Thank you all for rushing to the venue.

I was so happy to see you all!
