Roppongi, Tokyo

I had breakfast at my regular breakfast place: Eggcellent, Roppongi Hills, Tokyo.


I had an egg benedict plate.


After breakfast, I went to shopping at Roppongi Midtown, Tokyo.

I enjoyed window shopping and found hats that I was looking for!



After visiting boutiques, I stopped by for a drink at the lounge of the Ritz Carlton, Roppongi, Tokyo.

The lobby and the lounge of the Ritz are on 45th Floor; therefore, the scenery is nice overlooking Tokyo such as Akasaka (the State Guest House) and Shinjuku.


The live music, piano and violin, is playing and the scenery is nice; I felt like drinking bubble. fufufu

Breakfast @ Denny’s, Ginza, Tokyo

It is Japanese national holiday today:  Mountain Day.

Due to the global warming, the Summer in Japan has been very hot.

Originally, there isn’t any national holiday; therefore, the Japanese government created a national holiday in August.

Our office building was closed; we knew it’s going to be quiet today.

We went to Denny’s (the US origins dining restaurant) for breakfast.

In Japan, we call this type of restaurant, family restaurant because all family member can go and dine.

I enjoyed breakfast there.

Diving @ Mikomoto, Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka Part 2 (2nd Day)

I dived three times today.

I saw body of Hammer at the first dive.

I couldn’t see his head…I tried to look hard, but ocean is so blue and his body blended in.

At the second dive, when we just started diving, I met one Hammar.

I saw his head and body, but I didn’t see his distinguish head. 

He must have been facing side way. 

Then there was a family of Hammer, but I was bit late to swim fast.

I missed them…. ahhhhh

Unfortunately, I couldn’t take a photo of Hammer, but there are fish.



Now I became greedy.

Last week, I couldn’t see any Hammer and wished for one.

I saw one yesterday and two (!?) today.

But now… I want to see Hammer clearly, near and MORE!!!

I better check my schedule… hummmmm

Hammer Gettttttttt!

There was a concern about Typhoon 5.

It was 50:50 to dive today.

Nonetheless, I departed Tokyo by Shinkansen (Kodama 631) at 6:33 am and arrived Izukyu Shimoda Station by Ito line at 8:48 am.



The wave was high, but we could dive today.

And……

Finally, I saw a Hammer…

He was alone…

There was a distance between us, but I saw him…

A photo might not clear enough, but I think you can still see his figure.


Now I’m a certificate diver to see a Hammerhead Shark.

After finally have seen one, now I want to see a group of them… many Hammers!!!!

This is never ending adventures…


Today, I went to Mimatsu-Zushi Shimoda Station Branch to celebrate catching a Hammer!

I enjoyed every bite of sushi!

Bono Bono!

This Sushi restaurant serves many fresh local sushi that I highly recommend to visit!


Now let’s sleep to dream of meeting many Hammers….zzzzzz
