I got a rabbit (兎)and a 2nd version tiger (虎) from vol.6, and a lion (actually it may be 獅子 but this is only “獅”) from 3Re: (vol.3 reproduction).

All of these transforming moji (kanji – Chinese characters) animals are cool as usual!

A hat designer friend held an exhibition at Gallery Cafe 3 in Koenji.
I went to see it.

Each and every hat were so carefully made that they were truly wonderful. A portrait was hung next to each hat.

Cold weather is around the corner. I look forward to wearing the hat that I bought here.

I went to Tokyo University of the Arts school festival, “The school festival GEISAI 2012.”

There were a lot of mikoshi’s on display inside the campus. Every year, each faculty’s 1st year students build mikoshi’s and compete with each other.

It was fun to see so many unusual and unique mikoshi’s.

Tokyo station started in the year of 1914. After long construction days, beautiful built-of-brick station was reconstructed with evolved technology and latest sense.
The anniversary event “TOKYO STATION VISION” was feld in 2 days of September.
Cool projection-mapping CG danced on the brick walls. It was like a 100 years dream with Tokyo station!

Lisa Larson cutting board

I know it was my fault, I got off the train to “just have a look” at Lisa Larson’s new products.

Just only after some second, I realized I had a Trull – smiling cat’s cutting board – in my hands.
But maybe it’s ok, I could graduate from my old 100yen store’s cutting board!!

Fit’s MAGIQ Sugarless Gum in Slime flavor

Fit's-slim-gum1

This is a Fit’s MAGIQ Sugarless Gum in Slime flavor from LOTTE Co.
The expression “Slime flavor” is a play on words of “Suppai (sour) lime flavor,” Lotte said.

I love the packaging which is ridiculously adorable.
You should run to get it if you are Dragon Quest fan!
