For a few mins

I felt scare a few mins ago.


There was an earthquake at 5:22 pm.I was scared a little because it was a few mins.

I hope that I will be able to go home by trains.
(Sometimes, the trains stop on the earthquakes.)

According to the news, 3 of four people who are living in Tokyo worry about big earthquakes. Me too.

If you live in Tokyo , you can understand.

So I have to buy helmets after the payday of next month.

Veronica Guerin

At last night, I watched movies. First of them was "MARIA FULL OF GRACE".

This movie was one of the movies I want to watch. I was very absorbed in this movie while watching. The characters in the novel seem quite real. After watching it, I thought about poor and real of Colombia, drugs.

The second was "TOM-YUM-GOONG".

Thailand is one of the countries I want to visit.
I think that action was very exciting and good. But story wasn't as good as actions.

Final was "Veronica Guerin". Yes, true story. My brother recommended this movie.

I like Cate Blanchett very much. So I watch her movies. I like The Gift,Charlotte Gray.

After watching it, I repsect her and her family so much. I remember when I heard the news about her death when she was killed. I think that it is a movie worth watching.

I could enjoy movies although I couldn't sleep enough because I woke up until 4 am.

Blogger Templates

I changed my blog's template today. X taught me nice Blogger Templates. X, Thank you so much!

au or Docomo, or Vodafone?

Finally, Mobile Number Portability will start on October 24th. At first, KDDI's au announced some new mobile devices and various services.(Online storage service "au My Page" of 100MB for free, Videophone,record TV program into mini SD, watch TV programs, download musics and listen by player of LISMO etc) The fee of mobile number portability is about 2,000 yen. Sure! I am thinking which company of mobile phone is nice.



まじっすか??? あきれて、何もいえません。 とういわけで、ただいま法律をしらべています。 外国にいくか!!

Prizon Break

"Prizon Break". in Japan, it is popular like "LOST". At last night, I started watching it. I don't know that it was more interesting than LOST. But I have to wait for the season 3 of LOST. Anyway,I will watch "Prizon Break" tonight.



Once, I posted the article about Japanese character on my blog. Yesterday, I was asked to translate pages of one English book into Japanese. Then I was very shocked that I couldn't write some Japanese characters . Although I could write them before. So I wrote them by Hiragara... Oh,I can't believe my brain! I couldn't write these Japanese character. - "邸" means a residence and a mansion. - "雰囲気" means an atmosphere. - "追悼" means mourn. I can read them but I can't write by Kaji... I have to study not only English but also Kanji. So I may buy Kanji's text soon.


Remains of Hiraizumi

I read the news about remains of Iwate prefecture. I went to Iwate prefecture a few years ago. Then I saw Chuson-ji Temple and Gerden of Hiraizumi town. English is here. I had to go up a long slope "Tukimi-zaka" until the temple. But I could enjoy walking because I could see many plants or trees. The air was fresh and view was very wonderful. So you must enjoy walking too! There are museums of Basyo-Matsuo, Fujiwara family and hall of Noh, temples etc in there. The Golden Hall of Chusonji Temple was built Fujiwara family and they are covered with gold foil!!! It become a national treasure in 1951. There are 3 family Buddhist altars in there and dead 3 bodies of Fujiwara family were under family Buddhist altars. Yes, they were mummys of from the first to second readers of Fujiwara family. After seeing temple, I went to a river "Geibi kyo" in order to get on the boat. I could enjoy looking at the nice view while getting on the boat. And you can listen the song of Minyou because boatman sing a song while rowing a boat. Please got to there if you have a chance. The tour of Bus


Burned money

Could you burned money? I can't do that. But they did! Who? Gif prefectural office. Ago a few weeks ago, the news about bribe of more than 100,000,000 yen of Gifu prefectural office was known for the first time. Then terrible facts are broadcasted now. Because they were afraid that their behaviors might be known, they burned the money!!! In addition, they bribe to charity organizations such as the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) was contributed. Stupid... How many children could the money that they burned save? I can't understand them at all and I don't want to understand. Before, government employee was one of popular jobs . But now, it is not. The young want to become workers of nongovernment or set up the businness. I watched one anime at midnight of yesterday. Government Crime Investigation Agent Zaizen Jotaro!!! English is this.

He is a main character of this anime and He solves crimes of politics and bureaucratic government. When I started watching it , I was very surprised because the story was very intesting. So I will keep watching it next week.

Brogger Beta

I read the news about Blogger and X's blog.(Thanks,X!) Then I am trying Blogger Beta. It is easy to write HTML code and Java scritps etc. My new blog is this. I will keep writing this blog until Beta service will finished. Please look at this if you know about Brogger Beta more.


My taste

At last night, I went to the supermakert in order to buy some vegetables. After that, I cooked one meal. Vinegared cucumber and seaweed!!! Yes, it has been hot for days. So I don't want to eat heavy food. Seaweed is a very popular food. We drink miso soup with seaweed and eat salad with seaweed. When I was a child , I didn't like both. But As I grew up, I like both. I don't know whether they are adult's tastes. I often heard that their tastes change and they can eat food that they couldn't eat as soon as they are adults. Of course me too. I couldn't eat a lot of foods when I was a child. Tomatoes, carrots, meats, liver,raw and grilled fish, soy-milk, milk, cheese, ketchup, green peppers, calabrese, miso soup, vinegared food etc. I can't remember all of them. So when I was a child, it was hard to eat foods because they were not food that I could eat. But I can eat them now. Funny. Anyway, I cooked Vinegared cucumber and seaweed and ate them while drinking wine. We call Vinegared cucumber and seaweed "Sunomono". The recipe is this.



Well, I want to talk about one restaurant. When I went to Roppongi and saw the exhibition of Roppongi Hills, I went to one Japanese restaurant in order to have dinner. It was "Innaka-ya" of Roppongi.

When I entered this restaurant, I couldn't see the menu list of this restaurant because there were not any menu at the restaurant. I ordered some glasses of beer and 3 dishes(Squid, Sashimi,Skewered young chicken) because I didn't feel hungry at all. Then I paid money after eating them. So I was very surprised. Why? Because it was more expensive than I guessed. If you want to know the menu is here. After dinner, I went back home and checked this restaurant on the net. Then I could understand why this restaurant are very expensive. Yes, celebrities, Tom Cruise,Eric Clatopn, Jean Reno etc, often visit this restaurant. If you want to have dinner at this restaurant, you have to have a lot of money. I was lucky because I didn't order many dishes. If you want to go to Inakaya, you may need to check the price of the menu. Of course you many need to consult your wallets!


Controlled news

Heated Japanese media. The issue of Yasukuni is forgotten. Then the news about Jon Benet are broadcasted for hours instead of Yasukuni. Although we have to think about Yasukuni. I think that it is more terrible only to watch the news of TV. Because they sometimes broadcast only news that they want to show. Controlled news!!! You may be able to understand Japanese characters when you see Japanese media's policies. By they way, I had finished watching season 2 of "LOST". So I watched movies on weekend. - National Treasure - The island Well, I think that "National Treasure" was very good. Because I had been to Washington DC before, I could enjoy watching it more. For example, buildings and street scenes and Smithsonian museums By the way, I wanted to watch a movie "Tony Takitani". But I couldn't find it at the rental shops. So I will try finding it.


Season 2 of LOST

Finally, I finished reading "Prison hotel" and watching season 2 of LOST. So I am finding next interesting drama. If "Death Note" is still releasing at the movie theaters, I had gone to them. But it was over. I have to wait for DVD of "Death Note". I may watch the movies 'uchoten hotel' of Kouki Mitani and 'Tony Takitani' soon. I read the news about broadcast. Acording to the news, CBS will start broadcasting TV drama "The survivors" and "CSI" for free by the net in September. I think that people who watch Japanese dramas increase more if they are broadcasted on the net. Anyway, I am looking for interesting movies or dramas. Please tell me if you know about them.


Mobile mail order

I like digital so much. I read the news about "a mobile mail order". Some people like to use mobile phones when they buy things. Although I don't use them at all. But I agree with that the market size of "a mobile mail order" exceeds 500,000,000,000 yen this year and the market of mobile mail order keep being bigger. I don't use them when I buy things yet. But I use mobile phones when I send emails, check the time of trains or maps,reservations of trains. I have other news that I had forgotten to write about it on my blog. It is how to contact your family by mobile phones. Do you send emails or call by mobile phones when you have to contact your family? I often get emails from my friends and my family by mobile phones. According to the news, people of 61.9% send email families by mobile phones more than call when they have to contact them. I can understand it. Because it is not a good manner to call by mobile phones when we get on the trains and subways. So I send someone emails by my cellphone when I have to contact them at once while getting on the trains etc. In the beginning, I will try buying a book that my mother wanted on Amazon by mobile phones in order to buy things by mobilep hones.



I had to go back Tokyo. So I left from Nagoya at night after I watched movies ,dramas. These are eki-ben. Eki-ben are box lunch that sold at train stations or on trains. "Miso-katus" ,that is fried pork with red miso sauce, is a dish of Nagoya famous food. I wanted to try eating them. But I couldn't eat more because I had dinner with my family. Anyway, I could sit on the seat while getting on the express train to Tokyo. I really thanked my mother. Because she made a reservations of it yesterday. If she didn't do that, I had to keep standing up on the train. After 2 hours, the express train arrived at Tokyo station. My summer vacations was over. I could really enjoy my summer vaction with my family. I hope that I will meet my father and spend a good time together.


Night's view

What did you do next day? Well,I got up at the noon and we went to Japanese restaurant in order to have lunch. - Grilled fish and rice,miso soup

- tenpura and sushi,noodle

After lunch, we needed some exercises because we had eaten too much since yesterday. So we decided to go to Sakae. I heard that Sakae is a major place in Nagoya. It is like Shinjyuku, Shibuya, Roppongi of Tokyo. There are shops,department(Takashima-ya,Mitsukosi etc),restarants,hotels in there.
I found interesting thing. Yes,Ferris wheel !!!!

Although I didn't get on.
I bought clothes and we went to the Tower 'Nagoya tower'.

It is not taller than Tokyo tower. But you can see a view of night if you go to there. We saw the view of night for a while. Then we went back and I ate ramen.

I don't know whether I could do exercise. Because I kept eating and drinking too much since yesterday...



After going to Tokugawa Art Museum, we had lunch at "Garden restaurant tokugawaen". It is a French restaurant We ordered French meals and ate while looking at the garden. - Entree : salmon and lobster,scallop and a broccoli,mousse of a pumpkin with Tartar sauce

- Soupe : green soybean and fresh cream's soupe

- Plat Principal : Thailand and ass Para with tomato mustard sauce
Sorry.I forgot to take a photo of Dessert. After we ate meals, we enjoyed looking at the garden for 1 hours. Then we went to the garden of Tokugawa en. We walked about the garden for 3 hours. Then we listened to the concert that be held in the garden. We could enjoy looking at a Tokugawaen. You may need insect bite reliever when you will go to there. Because I was bitten a lot by a mosquito.

Time slip!!!!

I got up at 9 am and went to Tokugawa Art Museum and a garden. Once, my father told me that many foreigners and Japanese visited them and there are many exhibits of national treasures in Tokugawa Art Museum. So I really looked for going to there. This is an entrance of Tokugwa museum.

- Helmet and Armor of

- Arrows that samurai used

- bronze

- The picture of the tale of Genji

I was very surprised at exhibits while looking at them. Because I have not realistically watched them till now at all so far.I had known only them of movies and TV programs. Swords (Ieyasu Tokugawa, Nobunaga Oda etc used them),letters and pictures,clothes and things of Noh etc.
Yes,they are very fantastic. I recommend that you go to there. They are worth looking once. I will go to there again. I really could enjoyed looking at them.
After looking at them, we went to a restaurant "Garden restaurant tokugawaen".

I will write about the restaurant and a garden later.
Anyway, you can slip into the Edo period if you go to Tokugawa museum.


Summer vacation!

Summer vacation's season and traffic jam came. After work, I went to Tokyo station and got on the express. I could sit on the seat of the express train because I waited for 1 hours at the station. But many people tried to get on them and they stood up on the trains for hours in order to go back hometowns. Anyway,I arrived at Nagoya after 2 hours.Then I went to the place where my father waited for me. I had never been him since last year.So we had a lot of what we wanted to talk. After going back by the car, we had dinner together. After eating dinner while drinking wine, my mother said that she wanted to eat chocolates. Yes, she remembered !!! So we eat them. They were very delicious!!! I will try to look for them at the stores. Anyway, we could enjoy talking together while having dinner.


The best speech

I will watch season 2 of LOST after preparing the package because I will go to Nagoya at tomorrow's night. Yes, I had finished watching season 1 and then I keep watching season 2 of LOST. I finished watching episode 18 of LOST last night. I think this drama are wonderful. All of the characters have troubles. The mariagge, parents, and loves. And the problems are same to us. We think about the jobs and familes, lives. When I finish watching LOST, I feel that human are very wonderful. And it is most important to believe people and themselves and respect others. Then they can solve the private's programs even if they had hard time. I believe that we can solve some troubles. And We can learn from them. To believe ourselves is one of my policies. I got a wonderful letter from Ba. I said him that I respect Steave Jobs 10 years ago. Then he sent me a wonderful speech of him. I knew that he was very selfish before. Then he met troubles(he had to left Apple etc). But he learned a lot of things from the troubles. I have words I love. Select more difficult way if you have 2 choices. Then enjoying it while doing. I knew it when I was 20 years. And I tried to select more difficult way when I had 2 ways for me. Because I thought it was worth of doing although it was difficult. Difficult things gave me different thoughts. After I could finish doing difficult things, they gave me satisfactions and they made me strong. Of course I felt that I wanted to give up. But I didn't try giving up. One friend often says 'use cunning and live better!!!'. Yeah, his words may be correct. I sometimes feel that Japanese society and culture are difficult. They are unsocialble. For example, some of them don't like to express themselves and discuss together. They like to obey others and depend on others. Because it is easy not to think by ourselves and they don't need to accept their responsibility. Then they try doing that without any discussions even if it is wrong. Yes. The spirit of cooperation. I like it. But I may not do if I don't believe it. They like authority. But I expressed my opinion. I am satisfied with my choices and I want to be honest to myself anytime. Because I could do the best while enjoying and I could said that it was wrong. So I don't regret at all. Because I could enjoy doing and I could learn many things from the troubles. So these words became my policies. Stay hungry, stay foolish. I want many people to know his speech. So listen his speech although you knew it. I think his speech cheer me and I want to listen his speech when I am in troubles.His speech gives a huge power. --- Thank you. I'm honored to be with you today for your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. Truth be told, I never graduated from college and this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories. The first story is about connecting the dots. I dropped out of Reed College after the first six months but then stayed around as a drop-in for another eighteen months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife, except that when I popped out, they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking, "We've got an unexpected baby boy. Do you want him?" They said, "Of course." My biological mother found out later that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would go to college. This was the start in my life. And seventeen years later, I did go to college, but I naïvely chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and no idea of how college was going to help me figure it out, and here I was, spending all the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out, I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me and begin dropping in on the ones that looked far more interesting. It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms. I returned Coke bottles for the five-cent deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the seven miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example. Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer was beautifully hand-calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and sans-serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating. None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me, and we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts, and since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on that calligraphy class and personals computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college, but it was very, very clear looking backwards 10 years later. Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backwards, so you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something--your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever--because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference. My second story is about love and loss. I was lucky. I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents' garage when I was twenty. We worked hard and in ten years, Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4,000 employees. We'd just released our finest creation, the Macintosh, a year earlier, and I'd just turned thirty, and then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew, we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so, things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge, and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our board of directors sided with him, and so at thirty, I was out, and very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating. I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down, that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure and I even thought about running away from the Valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me. I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I'd been rejected but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over. I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods in my life. During the next five years I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the world's first computer-animated feature film, "Toy Story," and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT and I returned to Apple and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance, and Lorene and I have a wonderful family together. I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful-tasting medicine but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life's going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it, and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don't settle. My third story is about death. When I was 17 I read a quote that went something like "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "no" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important thing I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life, because almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctors' code for "prepare to die." It means to try and tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next ten years to tell them, in just a few months. It means to make sure that everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes. I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope, the doctor started crying, because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and, thankfully, I am fine now. This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope it's the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept. No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don't want to die to get there, and yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it's quite true. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalogue, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stuart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late Sixties, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and Polaroid cameras. it was sort of like Google in paperback form thirty-five years before Google came along. I was idealistic, overflowing with neat tools and great notions. Stuart and his team put out several issues of the The Whole Earth Catalogue, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-Seventies and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath were the words, "Stay hungry, stay foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. "Stay hungry, stay foolish." And I have always wished that for myself, and now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you. Stay hungry, stay foolish. Thank you all, very much. ---


At last night, the soccer's game of Japan vs Trinidad and Tobago was held although I couldn't watch it. Japan won. But Osim and players have to solve many problems because the new team just began to start. New players played on the last night's game. I agree with Osim's interview after the game. They knew their weakness and they have to solve them. I hope that. Well, Osim is very calm and he is cool of Japnese soccer.He honestly says about Japanese soccer. It is good for Japanese who believe that Japan might win Brazil on the world cup. Anyway, I have a lot of time next week. So I will try reading one book. Yes, 'iCon'!!! I like Steave Jobs. Have you every read 'iCon'? I read the books about Steave Jobs and apple before. So I look forward to read 'iCon'. Of course I have to finish reading Prizon hotel. Recently, I didn't read business books at all.(I read only mystery novels and manga.hahaha) Have you ever read these books? Although I read other books , I recommend these books. I will try reading these again.

I don't eat them at all. Why? I will eat these with my family next week. My mother loves chocolates so much. (My father too.) Especially, she knew the chocolates from Mike . So she is waiting for eating chocolates. I hide them because she may eat alone. This is a DVD of Rolling stones!!! I had never gone to their concerts in Tokyo yet. But I decided that I will go to their concert of Tokyo after I watched a DVD of Rollingstones. Their music and performances were excellent!!! Mike, thank you very much! I can't express my joy!

Prison hotel

Well,I read the news of the government,international,internet,games and entertaiment etc on the net or daily emails from websites. Then I foud interesting news every day. Apple's users looked forward to WWDC. Of course me too. By the way, I am reading a new books now. The author is Jiro Asada. The movie was made this book 'Poppoya' of him. Do you know Ken Takakura? He had played a role of 'Black rain'.Then played a main role of the movie 'Poppoya'. By the way, the title of the book I am reading is 'Prison hotel'. The story is about the hotel of Japanese Yakuza! The owner of hotel is Yakuza .The story began that his nephew visited his uncle's hotel of Okuyumoto. Employees of this hotel are Yakuza! Yes. Very funny. So people didn't know that they were Yakuza and interesting incidents happened around them while staying the hotel. When I read this book,I couldn't stop laughing on the subway. The hotel was in Oku yumoto. I like Okyu yumoto. There are nice hotels in there. For example, Yumoto Fujiya hotel. I heard that John Lennon stayed this hotel and he liked this hotel. I want to stay this hotel someday. But I may not want to stay Prizon hotel of this book although the book is very funny.

Well, I may go to Nagoya of Aichi prefecture from Aug 11th to Aug 15th or 16th although I don't know what I will do in there. It is good for me to meet my father and have dinner together with my family. Of course I want my family to go to travel someday. Nagoya's culture is different from Tokyo. For example different dialects, food,customs. When I had gone to cafes of Nagoya, I was very surprised that they provide breakfast (bread and egg,salad) to us when we order only coffee in the morning. Of course we pay only the money of coffee. I heard that it is common in Nagoya. Could you believe? These are other famous foods of Nagoya. - kishimen (Nagoya's noddle) - red miso I think that Nagoya's people only drink red miso soup. They eat hot noodle(udon) and fried pork etc with red miso sauce. Do you know Noritake? Noritake is a company of Nagoya. When I gone to Nagoya ,I knew that. Althoguh I didn't go to Tokugawa museum in Nagoya. If you go to there, you can see many exhibitions of Samurai. Please look at these if you want to see them.


Do you know hiyayakko(cold tofu)? Please try making hiya yakko after reading this if you think it is not easy to make Japanese dishes. We eat often Hiyayakko on the summer. It is very easy to make Hiyayakko! I eat this Hiyayakko. Ingredients are ・Tofu ・Tuna ・Soy sauce(or Ponzu) ・tomato ・mayonnaise Just eat them(tofu,tuna,tomato) with soy sauce and mayonnaise on Tofu if you like mayonnaise. It is easy, isn't it?
