Edo Sushi Sasaki

Sushi Sasaki @ Ginza
People in Edo started to have Sushi and a restaurant started using fresh fish.
'Edo' means old Tokyo during from the 17th to 19th centuries where used to be a city of Samurai, and Osaka is for merchant at the time.

And NOW, Sushi chef in Osaka cut up a fish from stomach but chef in Tokyo do it from back.
Because Harakiri (commit ritual suicide by disembowelment) is avoidable for Samurai, and Hara wo waru ('Breaking stomach' means heart to heart talk) is high end spirit for merchant.

That's what the chef at Sasaki talked ^^.

I do not speak nor read Japanese.
Is Sushi Sasaki still ok, or they won't accept my presence? Also: (1)any other top sushiya that is among your top 3 in Tokyo? (2)How do local sushi Japanese fans rate places that are so popular with foreigners like Sushi Mizutani? Yoshitake? Sushiso Masa? Are those perceived as the very top for the locals or are there unknown ones that the locals find superior to those? If Yes, which ones please? Thanks

Togakushi Shrine

Take a Shinkansen from Tokyo to Nagano, and rent a car to drive to Togakushi Shrine which is about 45 minutes by car from Nagano Station.

If you want to drive from Tokyo, it takes about 2 to 3 hours additional. 

It's not much distance if I use Shinkansen and Nagano is country so it would be easy drive, I thought,
but I broke into into a cold sweat because there were many hairpin curves.  
It was all right after all.
I thought I should more drive often. There are so many nice places in the suburbs, and my driving skill never gets better if I don't use it.
Well, it is all experience.

Gate of Hou-Kou-Sha

The entire mountain is filled with powerful energy.
It is a place of mythology of opening the rock(Amano-Iwato-legend) in the ancient Japan.
When Amaterasu, the sun goddess, hided in the rock cave upsetting with her brother Susanoo's bad behaviors, some gods and goddesses worked together to open the rock.

Togakushi, means 'hiding inside the door`, this shrine worships tho…

This is very nice, thank to a holiday god.

Lunch hour @ curry shop in Nakameguro
Many Japanese people love curry.
There is clearly distinct between Japanese and Indian curry. But not worry, we love both. Both are popular.
This is Japanese curry, however not usual one. It a vegetarian with avocado topping and rice is type of mixture of 16 different kinds of cereals, which is popular by health conscious person.
Call it 16 Kokumai

I tried to draw Daenerys Targaryen from Game of thrones with coloring pencils @ art class.

My teacher says not start with a skin color on white paper.
It is same as drawing, we have to start with shadow first.

This is my teacher colored It sounds crazy. Looks like aline.
Give it a try.

My work, ended with only shadow. Skin part will be next week.

I can't wait til…

Time Management

We all have the same problem, how to manage the time. The world is getting busier and busier especially after IT revolution,  it's expanding day by day and year by year.
Now people are going to live in Mars? It sounds crazy, but think about it as option. Life would be fun if you have more options.
When we pay attention to many things, our mind getting busy as well. Some people might stop thinking because they can not handle it.
But I can't stop it now,  we should watch carefully the world.
It would be better world if it was watched by people who are caring.
Recently I started to make a list for weekend. At work, I have been doing it for long time and it works. So I make a to do list for weekend too.
When we have too many things to do, we tend to spend time on unnecessary things, don't we? So making list is something as making a frame. Frame that decorates our dream.

A little progress with skin color from the last week
