My brother and I went to a so-called
kushi restaurant in Shibuya last week. Like any other kushi restaurants, it was filled with smoke from grilling kitchen, as well as cigarettes’ smoke from other people enjoying eating and talking. We ordered a variety of chicken meals, and the first plate was chopped raw chicken. Well, I heard of people eating raw chicken, but I had never actually seen the real one. It's always nice to experience new thing, isn't it? The taste was not fatty and good for hot days like summer. (As you can see in this photo, wasabi and sliced onion was great when you eat along with raw chickens.)
We talked a lot, like what happened since last time we met, and by the time we left the restaurant, it was almost midnight. "I must fall asleep while being on the train to come back to my home!" I thought myself and began to walk toward the station nearby.
My latest work :) Shuttling between the library and my home became my routine, and this temple is just besides the library. One day I was taking the lunch outside, I found an old temple stood there. With my pen and paper, I sit in a shade of a tree, then started to draw it. When I finished it, the shade had already moved and I found myself shined by the sun :)
Sometimes we have to go out when we feel frustrated in our daily life. In that case, Haneda Airport
,mainly used for domestic flights and LCCs but also for international flight in recent years, may be a good destination to visit. I went to the airport a couple weeks ago, just see the planes and the passengers go back and forth. Despite people rushed in and out of the airport, I was waiting for nothing in particular. I climbed on a deck nearby, then took a glance once in a while, especially when a loud sound wrapped on it.
One thing I noticed about the airport was we can visit without any purpose. We can drink, eat in a fine restaurant, and buy clothes and stuff. It was like a mega shopping mall. Since I like this kind of place, I spent much more time than I expected.
I was lucky I found Mt. Fuji before I left. Also,
Whenever I got tired of hot weather, I drive my car to the south until it reaches the ocean. Recent couple of weeks, this country gets more and more severe temperature, so it was time to get back to my hometown to head to the sea :)
I was supposed to work while I was on the bullet train. What made it impossible was the comfortable seat which prevented me from overwork. I slept, and once I awake and looked outside of the window, it was almost in my hometown Nagoya.
Well, let's go to the sea, shall we? :)
The reason I repeatedly come back to the sea is to eat nice fish and foods. While it's available to enjoy at some cool and sophisticated facilities, I tend to spend more time in a local fish market. "No two things are the same" I always think that way in the market ;)
Meiji Shrine is a wonderful place to take a walk whenever you feel tired of being in a big city like Tokyo. Meiji Shrine lies just near the fancy place called Harajuku, . Quiet, cooler than the outside, and lots of nature welcome you. A mid morning of July, I decided to get there to walk.
In spite of crowded streets just near from it, walking inside
the Meiji Shrine is something like hiking on the peaceful grass field. Not surprisingly, it was indeed the outside, cooler than thanks to small trees shading me. I saw many foreigners walking along with their cameras. water ways and
An hour walking made me so hungry, so I had a lunch nearby. It's so convenient to get a fresh air at the shrine. Thanks!
As I moved to a new apartment yesterday, the first thing I did was checking out of the condition of the tiny kitchen. It was almost the only thing I noticed when I searched a room to rent: if it's capable for my daily cooking. Baking breads, making rice, soups, and grilling fish. Foods actually makes my life, thus, I was so satisfied to find it was enough to do it. Although it must take time to get used to live this current new place, I'll be definitely okay as long as I could keep cooking :)
I came over this place yesterday when I walked across an old bridge to see my friend. Akihabara
