camellia oil

camellia (tsubaki) oil

Camellia oil is traditional beauty oil for hair/skin made from camellia seeds.
our granma age, girls proud of shining black hair with the oil… for
some time, this was popular in elder people only.

Nowadays, because people consider about what is good for body and
health, camellia oil is in the limelight again!
I love using it plus some essential oils :)

Twilighters gathered in Tokyo

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner attended the Tokyo premiere of “Twilight” in Tokyo at Ebisu Garden Palace on February 27th. The film won’t start until April 4th in Japan, which I really can’t believe.

It was the coldest day of this winter; under sleety raining and windy conditions, Twilighters were waiting to see them for hours.

Sakuramochi is a variety of wagashi, or Japanese confectionery consisting of a sweet pink mochi (rice cake) and red bean paste, covered with a leaf of sakura (cherry blossom).


You can eat a sweet pink mochi with pickled sakura leaves. It tasts awesome!!


Sakura-mochi is eaten on March 3rd, Girl’s Day. The Japanese Doll’s Festival or Girl’s day (Hina-matsuri), is held on March 3, the third day of the third month. This is a day to pray for young girl’s growth and happiness.
