Israeli cuisine Ta-im

The other day accidentally I found an Israeli restaurant which is located between Ebisu and Hiroo. Actually it’s kind of small shop as it’s called “an restaurant”, but I don’t know same word as “食堂” in English… shop?

I think it’s my first time to eat an Israeli cuisine but I liked that indeed.

And the owner of the “shop” was really friendly, he’s writing customer’s name on the wall in Hebrew. It reminded me of the wailing wall, of course those two things are quite different, only same as “wall”.

He’s really nice person, and his cooking’s as well. You should go there.

Ghibli Museum, Mitaka in Tokyo

The last day of New year holiday I visited in Ghibli museum in Mitaka-shi, it’s my first time to come there since it had been build.

The reason why I hadn’t visited for a long time is they have a little complex ticket system. First, you have to decide what date and time you want to visit there and then you can check it’s available or not on LOWSON’s ticket service on the web or by their own device in stores. If you’re not member of LOWSON’s ticket site when you check it on the web you have to become a member, but that process make us feel annoying a lot. After through those process you get a ticket.

When I got to the entrance, there’s already a long lineup to waiting next time. And I’ve been surprised many foreign people were waiting there, not only asian but also caucasian.

You can see the big Totoro during through the entrance.

Inside of the museum, I thought it’s consisted of three parts, Ghibli’s work materials, stuffs like picture books that Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki had got influence and inspirations for their works, and stuffs such as statues and buildings which appearing in films.

Wildmagic – Outdoor park in Toyosu

It’s a great sunny day in autumn. I was interested in that place since it’ve opened, but I never could reach the phone number in spite of I tried 10′s call in a day. So I had no choice but to wait they reveal web apply function on the site.

Look at pictures below, I thought it has similar atmosphere to Asagiri-Jam ( music and camping event in Shizuoka ).





SAKURA at Yoyogi Park Tokyo

This weekend we could see cherry trees (we say “SAKURA”) in full bloom.

Some western friend said to me they don’t have same custom as “Hanami”. And the day before that day I went yo yoyogi park, he took place his going away party at cemetery. Although that sound weird, many cemeteries in Japan are popular Hanami places. That’s why we drunk next to gravestones and moved his apartment. He’s going to world travel.

Have a great wandering, Michael.
