They are very famous Japanes snacks that taste very good.
Also, they are collaborated with ‘EVANGELION’ with their special limited flavors such as ‘Rei’s Miso soup’ of Bakauke and ‘Misato’s Spicy Curry’ of Baby Star Ramen.
The both tastes wonderful!

I got a cotton dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011.
It is easy to wear because it has no zipper on the dress.
And, it must be good for very hot summer in Japan.
Moreover, I love the design of the cuttings for 2 different colors.

I don’t usually wear a bracelet, but accidentally I bought it because the baby owl is so adorable!
Also, I like the sensitive design too. However, I hope that I will get the mom for the baby owl that is going to be a necklace.

The Sumida River Firework Festival



The Sumida River Firework Festival is a firework festival that is held every year on the last Saturday in July along the riverbed of the river Sumida.
Because of the earthquake disaster, this year the festival was held on August 27.


A total of 20,000 well designed fireworks lit up the night sky with bright colors.


There were a lot of girls wearing traditional costumes and they all looked very pretty.

The Awa Odori Festival in Koenji


At the end of the summer, I went to the Awa Odori Festival held in Koenji.


The Awa Odori Festival originates from Tokushima and is one of the traditional dance festivals in Japan.


The Awa Odori Festival in Koenji is one of the three biggest dance festivals in Japan, and each year, approximately 10,000 people dancers gather together from all over the country.

Each region has its own individual characteristic in terms of dance style, musical instrument and costumes. It was really interesting to watch.
