Have you been to 'Game center' (amusement arcade )?
There are many amusement arcade in Tokyo, and people playing
and enjoying video games there.
And you will see this machine which has screen and Japanese drum in front of it.
This is the game how perfect you can hit the drum to the music.
The screen says that timing and you just hit that drum and if it's good timing, you get a score 'good!'
I'm now enjoying this game on my iPod, and maybe I hit the screen strongly....
wondering if my iPod is okay??
Just try the one you can see in the amusement arcade!
You can feel to be Japanese drum expart!!
And...how good timing!
We have 'Wadaiko (Japanese drum) show' and reception party at Sakura Hotel Hatagaya!
Information is as below,
DATE: December 18th (Sat)
PLACE: Sakura Hotel Hatagaya
TIME: Performance 4pm~Reception party 5pm~
FEE: Free and 1,000yen for the party
My favorite one is Jingu Gaien (The Meiji Jingu Outer Garden).
Now, the leaves on the ginkgo trees along Gaien-dori have turned yellow (actually it looks gold to me) and needless to say,Gaien-dori is famous for the beautiful colored leaves. It feels so good to walk on the ‘golden carpet’
Another reason why I like Jingu Gaien is … because I can enjoy watching sports all year long. Especially I like the fall and winter months coz I love rugby. I would say that I take a subway Ginza-line and get off at the Gaienmae station and hang around Jingu Gaien almost every weekend in winter season.

This is the photo, 'Potato chip' with Sariko.
Oops,she is working now, sorry :p
She got this potato chip from Tochigi pref as souvenir for us :)
We know there are generally some flavor like salt, vinegar,seaweed..and so on.
This is the one, which is actually we can't find it in Tokyo,
this is kind of local specialty.
This special flavor is 'Gyoza'! (dumpling) and Utsunomiya city is saying 'Gyoza city'.
Someone brought this recipe from China long time ago and it spread over in this town.
There are numerous gyoza shops and also this potato chip:)
Oneday, someone show me the box and asked where they can buy it.
That was 'KitKat' in 'Matcha' taste.
Actually this only selling in Kyoto, bacause Matcha is local specialty for Uji city in Kyoto.
Here as you can see, there are special taste 'KitKat' selling in limited area.
Apple Kitkat in Nagano pref
Wasabi (!) KitKat in Shizuoka pref
Orange KitKat in Shikoku area
Soy sauce KitKat(!?) in Tokyo
Sweet potato KitKat in Kyushu area
Also there are various snacks in various flavor and it becoming one of our another enjoyment
