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

Folding Keyboard Ryudo

Today is Aquarius new moon.
Write down 10 wishes on the paper or note.
Handwriting is key.

This is folding keyboard, the maker is Ryudo. I was interested, but hadn't had long years. Because I have laptop. But we don't bring computers daily, do we?
So I started to think, if I had that, I might write more often... Before buying it, I investigated which keyboard was the best as there were so many kinds.
First of all, It has to be light, otherwise, it will stay at home.
And thought of the place where I mostly would use... it would be on a train, not a cafe as I commute long hours every day.
So it has to be small and quiet.  I don't want to bother others.
If I use a keyboard on my bag when I seat, my iPhone needs to place to stand, Ryudo is compact, ideal typing and has a stand. It's not very strong but enough to hold my iPhone 7 plus.
One thing I cared was that Ryudo was battery powered not chargeable. So I looked over all other keyboard, but still Ryudo seemed desirable.
It was good buy.

Coloring skin with pencils

Fortunately had a long weekend again.
I took three paid-offs in September, since we have every weekend off, 
I worked less than two of third in a month and left were my holidays,  
which allowed me to post more blogs.

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…

Bon Odori 2017

What to do in Summer?
My favorite activity is Bon Odori (Dancing).Wearing Yukata and Geta, which is not necessary, but if you could, it would be fun.

I bought this Geta at the event, they create tapping sounds which is important to Gujo Odori.And among variety of Bon Odori, I love Gujo Hachiman Odori.
This one originally from Gifu prefecture, but it is also held in Tokyo by Gujo Hachiman Odori lovers. 
I had really good Sake there, which of cause from Gifu.From June to End of August, almost every weekend, we have something in Tokyo.Bon Dancing is quite simple, it repeats the same choreography,
everyone does the same movement. There is almost no superiority as if we were equality existence.
