Travelers' Night featuring SPAIN

About a year ago, people got passionate about the 2010 World Cup soccer games and Spain beat the Netherlands 1-0 to win its first World Cup title.

Personally, Spain was my favorite, so I was very happy for them.

Spain ... I have never been there, but I like Spanish
architecture ... the Sagrada Família
art ... Pablo Picasso

Futbol Club Barcelona

Above all, I am attracted to their cheerful character.

Cafe au lait BOWL

Do you know what this bowl for?

It is called ‘cafe au lait bowl’ … In French, they say ‘bol a café au lait
As the name suggests, it is used for cafe au lait.
Also you can guess that the bowl originally comes from France.
It is said that in France each member of family has their own bowl … Is that true?

There are various designs, shapes and colors of cafe au lait bowls.

It is not too much to say that antique cafe au lait bowls are artistic works.

Actually, cafe au lait bowls have practical function.
The bowls can be used as bowls for soups, salads and desserts.
‘What is useful is beautiful’

Ken and Melissa from Melbourne, Australia enjoyed having a breakfast with cafe au lait bowl.

It was their first time to try cafe au lait bowl.

Just looking at a cafe au lait bowl makes me dream about a life in Paris.
Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville) by Robert Doisneau
Just looking at the photo of a couple kissing in the streets of Paris makes me happy somehow.

I am a staff member of Sakura hotel Ikebukuro, but today I made a debut at Sakura cafe Ikebukuro.

ca13.JPG ca14.JPG
Which do you like better, with glasses or without glasses?
You do not care, do you?

A view from the bar … a new experience.
Beers (on the right) are very seductive.

Behind the bar … Mr. Nishimura … nice guy!
My heart was beating so fast, but Mikity was kind enough to help me out.

On my first day, I learned a lot and I saw things in different ways.

Physically It was much harder than I expected.
At the same time, I realize that I am getting old.

By the way, have you seen these movies?

They make me want to go to the cafe.
