Sui-chan started drawing lines with using pencil. (and she drinks milk at the same time…) Apparently, she is good at multitasking that her mother is not. And Mario is always her guard dog.

I found the cherry blossoms flavor KitKat at convenience store.
Not only beautiful package, you can make a donation to plant cherry trees in Tohoku region by purchasing this product.

It was March 11 yesterday and special programs were broadcasted all day in Japan. 10 years have passed since the big earthquake and tsunami happened in Tohoku area of Japan.

I believe that this event changed many people’s lives and way of thinking.

From this day onward, I began to think that unexpected things happen suddenly in life. I have to take more responsibility, independence in my life. Feel grateful for the normal day every nights.

And now, I became a mother of two children who were born after this event. As a parent, I will continue telling my children what happened in northern part of Japan and what we should prepare for the future.

Have you ever heard the word “Asa Ra”(朝ラー)?

This means “Easting Ramen from the morning”.
It has been a hot topic just before Corona and was popular with tourists as well, especially Ramen Lovers !

A Japanese famous ramen company Ippudo 一風堂 recently started offering Soy sauce ramen & Special rice porridge at their limited shop in Asakusabashi. So, my family and I visited weekday morning from 8:00!

The price is reasonable at 500 yen, and those who wish can drink coffee for free. *This service is weekday only!


Though Ippudo is famous for Tonkotsu ramen but the soy sauce ramen and their homemade egg noodles were really fresh, chewy and went well with light flavor soy based soup.


And our surprise was that their special rice porridge is made of Tonkotsu soup! Umeboshi, Zha cai, and paprika, which are thought to have been added to change the texture, were also interesting and delicious.

Both dishes warmed my body on a cold morning.
If you are interested in making Shoyu ramen (soy sauce based ramen), please check this recipe!

When I was taking a walk in the neighborhood, I found UME (梅) plum blossoms starting to bloom.
The early plum blossoms are called Kanbai/kambai (寒梅). It means Cold (寒) and Plum (梅) because they bloom at the coldest time of the year.  Spring is just around the corner in Tokyo!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Did you know that Japan celebrates Valentine’s Day with the opposite approach from overseas? I remember when I was young, my friends, including myself, were throbbing and squirming as Valentine’s Day approached.

In modern times, there is something called “giri choco” (義理チョコ) that gives chocolate to bosses and friends. Others seem to buy themselves high quality chocolates as a reward. My case…I made tofu donuts with my son Kengo and tasted together with my hubby and Sui-chan.

It’s still cold here in Tokyo. We don’t have snows but my hometown (northern part of Japan) snows a lot every winter. February 3rd is normally the day of Setsubun. Setsubun refers to the day before the beginning of each season. (the first days of spring, summer, fall and winter). The literal meaning of the word Setsubun is “seasonal division”. Out of all the 4 Setsubun days, Risshun (the first day of spring) is the most special day.

ここ東京はまだ寒いです。雪はありませんが、私の故郷(日本の北部)は毎年冬に雪がたくさん降ります。 2月3日は通常節分です。節分とは、各季節の始まりの前日を指します。 (春、夏、秋、冬の最初の日)。節分という言葉の文字通りの意味は「季節の分裂」です。節分4日間の中で、立春(春の初日)が最も特別な日です。

To celebrate this special day, my family and I visited the Japanese restaurant and had the huge Ebi-Furai (fried shrimps) that we have never seen this in life! The shrimp itself was big and also it’s coated with lots of panko (bread crumbs). So, super crispy outside and fluffy inside. I use small to medium size shrimps in my recipe video but if you are interested in how to make the Ebi Furai (Japanese fried shrimp) & Japanese version Tartar sauce, please check here!

この特別な日を祝うために、家族で日本食レストランへ行き、これまでに見たことのない巨大なエビフライを食べてきました。 エビ自体もとても大きくて、パン粉がさらにたっぷりついています。外はサクサク、中はふわふわ。私のレシピ動画では中サイズの海老を使用していますが、海老フライと日本版タルタルソースの作り方に興味のある方は是非、こちらのレシピをご覧ください!

In Tokyo, it snowed for the first time this year. It was only a few hours, but the kids were very excited about the snow. Sui-chan may not have known what was happening. It rarely snows in Tokyo, so I hope it will fall again!
東京では、今年最初の雪が降りました。ほんの数時間でしたが、子供たちは雪に大興奮。すいちゃんは何が起こっているのかわかっていなかったかもしれません。東京で雪が降ることは滅多にないので、また降るといいなぁ!

A photo of my daughter. Sui-chan is 1 year and 3 months old now. She eats better than her brother. Around this month, my son used to play with LEGO and wear bibs all the time, but as you can see, she always has food in her hands.
娘と久しぶりのツーショット。娘は1歳3ヶ月になりました。お兄ちゃんよりもよく食べます。息子がこのヶ月の頃はよだれ掛けをしながらLEGOで遊ぶのが定番スタイルでしたが、ご覧の通り、娘は常に両手に食べ物を持っているのが定番スタイルです。

My son Kengo and I wrote a votive tablet at the park we visited the other day. It was a park, not a shrine, so I wonder what would happen, but I feel that writing it will change my consciousness again. What is your resolution for this year?
Mine? “
May my YouTube Channel buzz …” 😊
先日訪れた公園に絵馬があったので、息子と一緒に書いてみました。(というか息子が書いてくれました。)神社ではなく公園だったのでどうなることやらですが、書くとまた意識が変わる気がします。今年のあなたの決意は何ですか?
私は、「YouTubeチャンネルでバズりますように♡」です。叶うといいなぁ。😊

It’s getting normal to see Sui-chan standing up and walking by herself.
These days, she tries to share her foods with Mario and Luigi.
So, when she’s eating something, this situation happens. Staring…

娘が自分で立って歩く日が多くなってきました。
そんな昨今、ふと気づくと娘がワンコたちに自分のおやつを与えようとすることが。
その心遣いはいいのですが、よく見ていなきゃとヒヤヒヤの日々です。
