Hello I'm Hiroshi!!

2018 FIFA World Cup has finally held. I love football and supporters paying attention to this event around the world.

What do you think which team will win?? Let's support them!!

Well today I'd like to introduce "Russia" where the World Cup has held.

I had the opportunity to go there at work and visited St Petersburg.


There are four seasons in Europe as well as in Japan. I think , the best season from spring to autumn.

The summer vacation is during to July to September, the sightseeing spots are very crowded with families on that time. I recommend you avoid that time if you possible.

St. Petersburg is a representative tourist spot in Russia.

You could see like an onion church around the city.

There are many sightseeing spots. For example a beautiful garden, a famous Hermitage Museum and any church.


You can get a lot of various experiences at Russia.

Please plan your trip if you any chance!


Thank you for reading!!

I'm Hiroshi with trainee.

The rainy season begins!. Take care your health.

Well, I went to see the hydrangea in Kamakura the other day, so today I will introduce about it.

To the Kamakura area, if you use the Shonan Shinjuku Line, you can take to get to there about one hour from Ikebukuro station.

To "Tokeiji" in Kitakamakura!


It looks like a Zen temple built in the 1200's, and hydrangea became the best time to see in early June.


Hydrangea is a representative flower by the rainy season of Japan, By the way, flower language seems to be "patient love"


When I went there, I had made a special public of "Iwagarami" which is one of hydrangea varieties.

【Period MAY 19th-JUNE 10th

It was very mysterious, blooming all over the wall!


Have you ever tried Japanese sweets?

It is a sweet made by imagining the four seasons and you can enjoy not only taste but also appearance. By the way it has been made with flowers motif.

【Period JUNE 1st-17th


Both the hydrangea and the tea shop are near the end of term. If this year is hard to go there, please visit next year!

Thank you for reading!!

Hace unos días estuve paseando por la mañana por la bonita zona de Sugamo y por la noche en Ikebukuro. Voy a ir colgando algunas fotos de lo que me encontré en esta jornada.


Tienda de Melon-pan en la calle comercial de Sugamo (más adelante hablo un poco sobre esta calle).

El melon pan es un bollo muy típico en Japón. (Por cierto, en japonés pan de dice pan, y melón se dice melon (o meron que es lo mismo ya que para su alfabeto la L y la R son lo mismo).
Se llama así por su forma redonda y textura que parece un melón, lo podeis encontrar en cualquier supermercado y ultimamente también están proliferando tiendas donde preparan estos bollos de manera artesana y te los puedes llevar recién hechos.

Este establecimiento era como una panadería donde además de varios tipos diferentes de melon pan horneaban también algunas otras especialidades como croissant.


En Tokio hay salas de video-juegos y máquinas recreativas de varios pisos como los Taito Station o las salas de Sega.

Esta vez visité una Taito Station en Ikebukuro, recomiendo subir al piso de arriba y luego ir bajando y viendo piso por piso, serguro que os sorprendereis de la variedad y de las máquinas tan originales.

Aunque ya tienen unos cuantos años mi favorita son las cabinas de Gundam como la de la foto, lástima que no he podido sacar los mandos tan chulos con detalle. La sensación de sentarte en la butaca con la pantalla envolvente es fantástica. Por cierto, también hay unas cabinas de este estilo de Star Wars.
