And we enjoyed a nice lunch with the beautiful view
at a restaurant in there.

We used to enjoy sailing when we were young,
because my husband has the sailing license for yacht.

I wish we could enjoy sailing again.

Song of Soul

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

Hi...,
Today is the very sad anniversary that my loved younger sister
went to heaven.
She passed away when she was twenty seven years old.
I will never get accustomed to this sorrow
though I can understand the fact that she is not in this world.
And I always become easily moved to tears every year
when this day comes.
Getting over this deep sadness is always tough for me.




Thank you...

人生は長いようで短くて、いつ終わりが来るのかも分からなくて、
だから、毎日大切に生きようって。。教えてくれたのは妹でした。

宝塚ファンの友人のお誘いで、雪組公演『ロミオとジュリエット』を観劇しました。。。


Last Saturday, I went to Takarazuka theater in Tokyo Hibiya
with my friend,and we saw the musical opera "Romeo & Juliette".

Takarazuka_20110221155448.jpg

Have you ever seen the Takarazuka musical stage?
Do you know Takarazuka opera company?

It is an unique opera company that has the history for about
100 years in Japan.
The member of theatrical company are all women!

So, the cast who is playing Romeo is also a woman, of course.
He, no, she is very cool, isn't it?

Besides, almost of all audience are women too!

And the stage is always very gorgeous, and audience enjoy
the dream world with the dance and music.
I think that Takarazuka opera is one of the Japanese unique culture.

And we were able to see the stage at the center of the eighth row
on that day.
Yeah, it was so wonderful!!

Napoleon Cherry ~さくらんぼのシロップ漬け~

Posted by mittanr on   1 comments   0 trackback

最近はサクランボの品種も多くなりましたね。
シロップ漬けはどこか懐かしい感じがします。。。

The cherry's history in Japan started by having been imported
from United States in Meiji era 5 (1872).

The cherry type that had been introduced at that time was Napoleon.

As for the Napoleon cherry, it is often made to the syrup products
instead of eating as fresh fruit.

This syrup pickle of the Napoleon cherry was so delicious.

日本の農業の発展を支える企業の勉強会とパーティーに出席。
貴重な体験でした。。。


I attended the study meeting and New Year's party of a fruit and
vegetables distribution company yesterday.

In the party, we ate the special course that used fruit and vegetables
that this company has handled.
And, we could know about the name, source, producer and
explanation of each fruit and vegetables that were used at the table.
I thought it was telling us these vegetables were safe and wonderful.
And, I felt this company brings the revolution to the agriculture of
Japan in the future.
     まつの
まつの005_  まつの011_
まつの010_  まつの013_

And it was a big party at Meiji-kinenkan in Tokyo and I met
a lot of people at the party, so it was a wonderful experience for me.

And, I hope Japanese fruit and vegetables will be able to pride
in the world.

Wagashi Lesson ~和菓子の心~

和菓子教室に英会話の先生方と参加しました。。。


Have you ever eaten Wagashi ( japanese-style confectionery)?

Wagashi express the four seasons in Japan and we can enjoy
the feeling of each season by wagashi.

Yesterday,I joined in a wagashi lesson with the teachers of English
conversation school.
And we learned how to make 'Uguisu-mochi' and 'Koubai-Hakubai'
at there.
We used Shiratamako(powder of rice),Shirozarame(sugar),
Koshian(paste of small beans),water and Kinako(powder of beans).

And Uguisu-mochi is the shape and color of Japanese bush warbler,
and Koubai-Hakubai is the shape and color of Japanese apricot's flower.
So we feel spring season from these wagashi.
It is interesting, isn’t it?

Well, it was not easy to make good shape, but it was so fun.
And those were sweet, delicious and beautiful!
Besides, there were 10 pieces for takeout yesterday!

wagashi1_.jpg wagashi2_.jpg
↑ I made them. They are beautiful,right?

By the way, I took the wagashi lesson with seven women.
Two of them were foreigner.
I was impressed with their big interest for Japanese culture.

After that, we had lunch at a nice Japanese restaurant in Enoshima.
We had a wonderful time.
I want to take the wagashi lesson next season again!

Today is February 3.
We have an annual event in Japan called SETSUBUN on this day,
and we usually scatter roasted soy beans in order to drive away goblins and have happiness with saying "Go out, goblin! Come in, happiness!"

And goblin is said to hate the sound of bean's husk and the thorn of holly,so I put it on the front door every year.

     節分

Oh, and...they seem to hate also the smell of sardine.
Um...I feel goblins are not strong.
In Japan, a lot of goblins must be in the outdoors tonight.
