The Return of Ganguro.

Just When You Thought it Was Safe to Go Back Into the Water.

They are back! You smell them before you see them: Ganguro girls. Is anyone else seeing a ganguro resurgence in their neighborhood? I saw a horde of them at Fussa station this evening. It was scary.

Seiryumon

Another Izakaya in Sakuragicho, Seiryumon with my aunt, cousin, and mum.
I used to go to another Seiryumon in Setagaya, each branch has different concept.
Here, the concept is underground, and we came across an interesting event. Suddenly, lots of water flow down from a pipe to the floor, and the water disappeared soon. It was only 5-6 mins event.

桜木町の青龍門に行きました。ここは地下水路をイメージしてるのかな。
地下道の両端に座席が用意されているような感じです。天井はアーチ型だし。
入って1時間ほどした頃、照明がちらちらと点いたり消えたりしてから薄暗くなり
写真のように、壁の穴がぽっかりと開いて、水が流れ出してきました。
水は、通路にまでも流れ込んできます。両端の座席は一段高いところにあるので、別に濡れたりするわけじゃないけど、なんかちょっとドキドキ。
そして数分後にはなにもなかったかのように、水は引いて元通り。

Yosakoi

This weekend the Matsuri was held in Omotesando, Tokyo. It is the final of a national competition, in which 160-odd teams are whittled down to just 20. Each team consists of 50-150 dancers and they were all spectacular.
Pictured is my friend’s team from Kochi, sponsored by AU (KDDI).

I went for drink with my colleagues to Izakaya(Japanese pub).
Usually, they provide warm towels and chopsticks with paper cover.
One of our colleagues started “Origami” with that towels and paper.
This picturte is the result of that. 17 towels for 9 people…strange.

会社の同僚と居酒屋で飲み会でした。
中の一人が、割り箸袋で鳥の形の箸置を作り始め、さらにおしぼりで
なんだかよくわかんない鳥を作り始めました。
10人くらいで飲んでいたはずなのに、おしぼり鳥はそれ以上います。不思議。

Found this near my station!
And as a “Frog collector”, I couldn’t ignore this.

What is this frog doing ? Ring ring ring ?

Chinese Massage / 中国整体

Have you ever tried chinese massage ?
I have been having pain in my shoulder, stiff neck, so decided to try it.

How did I choose the clinic ?
Well, it is the nearest to Yamate station, and it looks clean and tidy, that’s all.
And I think my choice is not wrong, it costs 4600JPY/60mins. Not bad.

肩とか首のこりがひどいので、山手駅そばの中国整体に行ってみました。
整形外科に行くかどうか迷ったのだけど、たまたま整体のほうが遅い時間までやってたので。
駅のそばでこじんまりとしたクリニックは、地元の人がよく利用しているみたいです。
問題は、中国人の施術士にちゃんと症状が伝わっているかどうか…

The only problem is, the water pressure is so low. But, hey, it is/was free. Guess I cannot complain.
