  • MARVEL - Age of Heroes
  • Yesterday, I visited the exhibition of MARVEL, which is one of the giants of American Comic publishers. Spiderman, Iron Man, Capta
    in America and more. The publisher has created prototype of US Hero one to the other since 1939. It was quite impressive that one
    of the creators of comics said though video “there is no creator in contemporary America, who has no experience of Japanese Anim

  • 牛すじカレー
  • This is the Gyu-Suji Curry, curry with beef sinew, served at Ushi no Chikara (牛の力). Originally, this restaurant is gyudon sh

  • Cloned Cultural Asset
  • Once again, I want to post an article about Tower of Babel. Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music (東京藝術大学)
    displays their Tower of Babel in Ueno campus. They say that the art work is not a kind of replica, which is simple copy of externa
    l appearance of original work, but a “cloned cultural asset”, new artistic expression which could be possible by development o

  • LEGO BABEL
  • This is Tower of Babel made by LEGO Club, University of Tokyo. The club member says that it took 4 months to create the tower. At
    first, they had to draw precise plan of the 3-dimention tower, which is originally 2-demention picture. So they had to image the i
    nternal structure of the tower, which needs to involve a lot of knowledge of today’s construction work. Secondly, they needed to

  • 「バベルの塔」見てきた
  • Brueghel’s “Tower of BABEL” is exhibited at The Tokyo Museum. Is it human’s arrogant or challenge to God? The Old Testaments says, it arose God’s anger and was destroyed in the end. What is remarkable in this picture is that Brueghel expressed lives of 1400 people which were not described in the myth. Construction workers, priests, followers and so on. They put together various hopes and [続きを読む]
  • Spicy Kitchen
  • Lunch at Spicy Kitchen. This curry restaurant serves traditional Indian style curry. Indian music and Indian video display creates
    somewhat oriental atmosphere inside the restaurant, although Beatles posters hung on the wall. I enjoyed chicken curry with Nan b

  • シン・ゴジラのT-CARD
  • Look at this!T-Card with Shin Godzilla design. Nice, isn’t it?To celebrate new Godzilla DVD, which is on sale recently, TSUTAYA

  • 江戸富士
  • One more thing I want to share with you about Tokyo Mid Town at GW. There is a Mt Fuji at the garden of TMT. But why Mt Fuji? Sinc
    e long time ago, Japanese people, who were not able to see real Fuji, tried to regard mountains near their place as their own idea
    l mountain ? Fuji. For Japanese, Mt Fuji has been the ideal mountain which tells us about a fundamental identity. Actually, we c

  • こいのぼり2
  • During last Golden Week, I visited Tokyo Mid Town. I could see many wonderful carp streamers there. Some were not like Japanese tr
    aditional carps because they were designed by foreign designers. I thought, that’s great. The free designed carp streamers swim
    in the air with wishes of global citizens. にほんブログ村 [続きを読む]
  • 筑波山
  • Today, I had a hiking at Mt Tsukuba with my family. We had decided yesterday to adopt the easiest route to reach to the summit of
    the mountain, which takes about 80 minutes to arrive at the summit. Unfortunately, however, we didn’t know that many people thin
    k same way as we did and the route was occupied with a long queue of hikers already at the half way to the goal. In the end, it to

    g to be held the day after tomorrow. The committee of the festival asked residents to offer carp streamers as the symbol of the fe
    stival. They say some seventy streamers were donated for the event. As I was taking the photos, I heard a young mother was singing

In the book, the author picked up lives of painters, described how they developed their art pieces based o [続きを読む]
  • Craft BOSS coffee
  • I tried "CRAFT BOSS COFFEE”, which is the new product of SUNTORY Ltd. The nice shaped bottle impresses on consumers a new style of the popular product. There are some other features which draw attention of our eyes, like relief of BOSS on the surface of the bottle and description of sell-by date on the edge of its cap. Not only external features but also taste is fantastic with its clearness. The [続きを読む]
  • DELHI_Indian Curry
  • I had “Delhi Curry” of the Indian restaurant DELHI at Tokyo Mid Town. Spicy flavor of curry stimulates appetite of lunch time. The sauce is not as thick as Japanese curry in general but is rather watery which soaked into rice as was poured on it. Large blocks of chicken meat were enough size to make me satisfied. While I was eating, I found Gods of both Japan and India wer [続きを読む]
  • Tsubaki Cafe

Usually, we see baristas make coffee at café, but for them, selection of coffee beans and roasting them, is more important process prior to coffee making. According to staff’s explanation at the event, with the machine Panasonic produced, we can experience the roasting process at home. In other words, the machine is not the coffee maker but dev [続きを読む]
