  • Ukiuyo-e Is a Media that Shows Us the lives of Edo People.
  • I went to an exhibition of Ukiyo-e or Japanese wood block printings entitled “Kuniyoshi Kunisada,” which was held at the Bunkamura Museum in Shibuya.Ukiyo in Ukiyo-e originally means sorrow and short-lived(憂き), but the  meaning changed to buoyant(浮き浮き)as the society became stable and people started enjoying their lives in Edo, the largest city in Japan.  The unique point of t [続きを読む]
  • Strolling around Tsukiji and Higashi-Ginza (1)
  • Tsukiji Honganji TempleTsukiji is a huge market, which deals with 8,800 tons of fish, vegetables, and fruits a day.  It’s surprising that that amount is traded just in a day for satisfying the demand of people in Tokyo.  The other day, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced that the Auction Hall of Tsukiji market is going to move to Toyosu, a bit to the south from where it is, [続きを読む]

  • Takashi Murakami’s Superflat Collection
  • I went to the Yokohama Museum to see “Takashi Murakami’s Superflat Collection.”  You might think it’s the art work of
    Takashi Murakami, one of the most successful artists in contemporary art, but it’s the display of Murakami’s private collecti

  • Working As a Guide Interpreter
  • Last month, I received a letter confirming that I passed the test to be a government licensed guide interpreter.  It’s a qualification that enables you to guide foreign tourists with a monetary reward.  I took this exam just for a challenge, but I never imagined working as a guide interpreter up to now. In 2015, the total number of tourists visiting Japan was 19,730,000.  It w [続きを読む]
  • One Day Picnic to Hakone.
  • I went to Hakone last weekend.  Hakone is a popular resort, which is well-known for having many hot springs, beautiful scener

    ; It’s so convenient.It was a fine day and I had expected to view Mt. Fuji from a very close point.  I think that Mt. Fuji

  • The Remains of the Azuchi Castle.
  • photo: azuchi-shiga.comIf I were asked what period of Japanese history do you like best, I would say it would be the Azuchi Momoya
    ma period (1573-1603) because many unique and innovative people appeared in the era such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and S
    en no Rikyu. Oda Nobunaga was a war load who completed the way to unify the nation and promoted the merchandising by opening a new

  • Raf Simons's days in Christian Dior.

  • An alumna association in Normandy.
  • I had very beautiful holidays in Normandy this summer.  To my delight, my French friends planned the special trip for me when

    -hour drive from Paris.Trouville used to be a small fishermen’s village facing the Atlantic Ocean.  Since the middle of the

  • A lovely hideaway floating on the Seine
  • A friend of mine invited me to her weekend house, which is located just outside of Paris. On a Friday night, after work, we h
    eaded for a tiny island that floats on the Seine.  You may know that Ile Saint-Louis and Ile Cite are also on the Seine, but
    our destination was a bit farther from the center of Paris.  About an hour’s drive brought us to the island.  To my su

  • I love Paris because of its inconvenience.
  • I went to Paris for the first time in about 10 years.  I have to admit that I needed some courage to go there because I thoug
    ht flying more than 10 hours would have been tiring for my age.  However, the excitement of seeing my old friends overrode my
    anxiety and consequently, my trip was wonderful.Almost everyday I hung around town with some of my friends, visiting museums and

  • Sakura Pilgrimage to Mt Yoshino
  • The sakura season is almost over in Tokyo, but I’m still in that mood. Maybe, a sort of sakura DNA that had been hidden in
    my mind is now awake. Last weekend, I went all the way to Yoshino in Nara prefecture to see “the best sakura” in Japan. There
    is an expression to describe the mesmerizing scenery in Yoshino; “Hitome senbon,” means that you can see a thousand tree [続きを読む]
