Japan’s traditional masterpiece “Kumade”

Categorised in: | Link of this article

005
I got Japanese traditional masterpiece “Kumade” at the famous shrine. During the Edo period, people started decorating Kumade with good luck charms and selling them at shrines, to help “raking in” success, wealth, safety and happiness. This will definitely bring good luck and many Japanese food & culture lovers this year!

This Kumade goes well with two sake barrels from Tatenokawa, the only sake company producing pure premium sake in Japan.

Come to my home/kitchen studio and find where they are in the classroom!

I had friends (and 9 months old baby) visiting from Canada for almost two weeks. So I visited some places with them. One of the memorial area is Roppongi.

When we visited there, the Christmas market was held and the illuminations near the Roppongi Hills were so beautiful.

Japanese style hamburger @ Ueno

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Since after we moved to the center of Tokyo, my family and I visit Ueno area more often than before.

023
From our nearest station (TABATA station), you can go to Ueno station with minimum of 4 minutes by JR line! Awsome!!

029
Since I was born and raised in the northern part of Japan so I used Ueno station when I go back to my hometown.

026
Since Ueno area is the hub station for people from northern part of Japan, there are so many traditional shops and things to see!

027
One of them is “Ame-yoko”. This means American market and small shops sell second hand clothes, bags and shoes.
You can also see the Japanese food shops like snack, fish & fruit shop and etc. It’s so fun just to walk around the area.

031
In the area, Ueno park is known as one of the best spot to see cherry blossoms. In Spring season, people eat and drink with their friends and colleagues under the cherry trees. When you come to Tokyo in Spring, you shouldn’t miss!

035

After waking, please visit and rest at the shopping mall called “Atre” in the Ueno station. Then, please try the Japanese style hamburger at the Tsubame grill restaurant.

Gunkan Curry & Yokosuka Burger @ Yokosuka

Categorised in: | Link of this article

I went to the Yokosuka with my parents and my son the other day.
Yokosuka is located in the Kanagawa prefecture, which is next to Tokyo.
It takes about less than 2 hours from Tokyo to there.

The area is famous for port and the United States Navy.
A lot of people from abroad (especially from USA) live there so you can see various cuisine restaurants.

The main purpose to visit Yokosuka was going to the “Sarushima island” (Monkey Island).
Sarushima is the only natural island in Tokyo bay and once was also used as a military fort.

Before visiting the island, we got hungry (of course!) so we visited the Yokosuka Port Market to have Lunch!
We tasted the famous food, “Yokosuka Burger” and “Gunkan curry”! And I had healthy pizza!!

030
After having lunch, we walked around the market that carries seasonal goods collected from Miura Peninsula and Yokosuka. (Wooo, the ice cream was delicious!)

031
Then, we moved to the Mikasa Pier where the Sarushima Cruise arrives and departs.

085
Arriving at the Sarushima island, we walked and walked a lot. It was a nice walk to enjoy the nature and see historical structures! I am sure I want to visit there again to do BBQ or Fishing with friends!
