Kakigori

かき氷~1It’s getting warmer day by day. Maybe you want something cold to eat. For example, it is ice cream, Kakigori and Somen which are very thin white Japanese noodles made of wheat flour. Do you know Kakigori? Kakigori is Japanese shaved ice dessert flavored with syrup and condensed milk. I recommend the Kakigori shop in Sangenjyaya. The name is “Ishibashi”. It’s located near Sangenjyaya station. Kakigori of tea with milk’s syrup is famous in this shop, because it makes this shop famous . It costs 650 yen. In addition, there are many funny taste there – Kakigori of banana syrup  and hunny one. These are unique for Japanese people, because we rarely see these syrup.

BBQ

wmNow BBQ season is coming! I recommend the place where you can do BBQ conveniently. It is WILDMAGIC in Toyosu. Toyosu is a part of Koto-ku in Tokyo. You have to reserve for using it. It costs 4,500 yen to 6,000 yen. If you want to stay there one night, it costs 7,000 yen to 10,000 yen. You don’t need to prepare the equipments of BBQ, because WILDMAGIC lend you that. Now it is crowded, so you should reserve early!!! In addition, you an stay one night. Let’s enjoy spending BBQ. By the way, there is a BBQ Master testing officially.

CHOKi CHOKi

CHOKi CHOKi” is a famous men’s fashion  magazine. I love this magazine and I’ve been reading it when I was high school student. The reason why I read it, of course there are so many good looking guys, and they are very fashionable. I like to see fashionable people, especially men. This magazine has three types that “CHOKi CHOKi,” “CHOKi CHOKi girls,” and “CHOKi CHOKi Rocknroll.” The last one “CHOKi CHOKi Rocknroll” is new. Now, when you buy “CHOKi CHOKi,” you can get “CHOKi CHOKi Rocknroll.” This magazine, you can read about not only fashion but also music, so if you like music, I’m sure you would like it!

Akakara is a spicy hot pot restaurant in Shibuya. This restaurant is a famous for young people. There are some vegetables and pork in the hot pot. First, we choose spicy level. There are 10 levels. 10 is the spiciest in this restaurant. When I went there, I choose 4, but it was so spicy and I couldn’t eat at all. Second we choose other ingredients for example Moti, Tofu, beef, cheese and so on. After ate the hot pot, we can put Udon or cheese risotto in the hot pot. We put cheese risotto in the hot pot. It was not so spicy and very tasty. If you like spicy food, you should go there!

Bill Cunningham & New York


image

I watched “Bill Cunningham &New York”.This movie is a kind of fashion movie.
Bill Cunningham is a photographer. He has been taking fashion photos by bicycle in New York City every day for 50 years. He wears blue clothes when he takes photos. And his fashion pictures appear in the New York Times “On The Street” column. He goes to New York City by bicycle to take photo e
very day even rainy day. He is 84 years old, but he has influence on fashion. This movie shows his life style and his work. His job is really wonderful. But his life style is frugal. He lives in a small apartment in Carnegie Hall. And he doesn’t buy new clothes and drinks cheap coffee. There is no sofa and no closet in his room. There are only a lot of photos. He said “I’m not doing a job, I ‘m doing joy.” And Anna Winter who is chief editor of VOGUE said “I’m wearing clothes for Bill.” They are proud that Bill takes their picture.
I really like this movie. I’m interested in fashion. I was moved by this movie. Because I could feel his love for street fashion, people and his job. He doesn’t do his job for money. He doing his job just with enjoyment. And he never slack off his job, he never relegates someone his job.
I really recommend this movie. You should watch this movie if you have a chance.

Good things for good prices

one plate lunchJapan has a lot of restaurants and café because the food service industry is growing in these years. We can enjoy various foods and drink outside every day. But eating outside every day requires great costs. Many people want to have delicious meal with reasonable price.

So I introduce a café in Shimokitazawa. It’s near the station. The name is PALAZZO. If you go there for lunch time, you can get almost all meals for about 500~700 yen! Last month I go there and I had “triple combo hamburg” includes small a small hamburg steak, spaghetti with meat sauce, and curry. It cost just 500 yen. I think it will satisfy you!

Natural Make-Up

クリックすると新しいウィンドウで開きます

Natural Make-Up” is popular among Japanese young women. That’s because it tends to be popular girl among man. At first, “Natural Make-Up” looks like bare face. However, they are really different things. In this “Natural Make-Up” case, we put on making up with care. There are three points to make up natural. First, it is skin care. We have to keep good condition of skin, so we should care about our diet and facial cleansing. Second, it is eyebrow. Now, our eyebrow should change to be thick. Eyebrow have an impact on an atmosphere of face. Last one is eye makeup. Most Japanese women tend to prefer to be powerful eye, so they add the false eyelashes. However, it is a mistake for “Natural Make-Up”. It is OK we just apply mascara each our eyelashes.
