Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments

Today, I will introduce you 「Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments」located by Hamamatsu station.
Hamamatsu city is where Yamaha and Kawai; manufacturers of musical instruments, originated.
「Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments」has opened since 1995 as the first museum of musical instruments in Japan.
And various musical instruments, music, and culture of all over the world are introduced there.
It's my favorite place, and I take my friend here if she comes to Hamamatsu city.

20120521-02.JPGEntrance hall↑

The museum is a two-storied building, and the first floor is built under the ground.
A lot of instruments from all over the world, which include 300 pieces from Asia, 60 pieces from Africa, 200 pieces from the Americas, and 300 pieces from Europe, are exhibited here.

Then, what makes visitors fun is that they can listen to the sounds of those instruments through a headset. Those audition areas are in places.
Listening to the sounds of the instruments makes it easier to imagine the air or smells of countries where those instruments are from than just looking at them.
I feel as if I know the countries even though I have never been there.
Sometimes, people come to like instruments of other countries which they didn't know before because of this kind of feelings.

20120521-05.JPGWell, here is the place I love the most, which is the exhibition space for pianos on the underground 1st floor.

20120521-06.JPGKeyboard instruments, such as cembalos, clavichords, organs, and pianos are exhibited here.
Cembalos that are performed in Paris in the 1700s and pianos that are performed in New York in the 1900s have not only beautiful tones but also have particular beautiful appearances as the furnishings.

20120521-07.JPGWorkers at this museum explain about particular instruments and give a live performance a few times a day.  I had a chance to listen to the story about pianos and pipe organs that are performed in the 1900s in the United States on this particular day. 

By the way, concerts of classic, jazz, and ethnic music are also held at this museum on the weekend's nights.
It costs about 1500 yen, but concerts here are much more fun compared to normal concerts. The distance between musicians and audience are closer; furthermore, the musicians give the audience some talk about the instruments.

I am sure there are some museums of musical instruments in the world.
I went to one in Brussels about 10 years ago.
Each museum has a characteristic of what it owns, and if I mention it for Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments, this is it. ↓

20120521-11.JPGIn Japan, domestic organs were developed in the Meiji period; then, domestic pianos were originated after that.
The place that happened was here, Hamamatsu.

YAMAHA pianos are still produced in Hamamatsu.
Old「organs with steps」and synthesizers are exhibited in the area where visitors can learn the 100 years of the instrument history in Hamamatsu.

20120521-12.JPGThis is, ↑↑the first model of KORG(korugu) synthesizer.
(KORG is a manufacturer in Tokyo.)
The development of synthesizers, which can make various sounds, started in 1970s, and it evolved dramatically.
I'm familiar with the shape and color of the switch.
I think how it was made is cool now.

20120521-13.JPGFinally, this↑↑is the YAMAHA grand piano which is made in 1950.
This was the first all -Japanese grand piano produced after the Second World War.
It was the time there was no goods......... I feel the spirit of the craftsman.

Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments, where people who are not fans of music can still enjoy.
The admission fee is 400 yen for adults.
Why don't you visit here? 

Isn't the courier service popular?

When I went back to my parents' home during spring vacation by Bullet Train, I had only a small bag.
My French friend was surprised at it.
French「Oh! Is that all of your things? 」
I 「... Huh ? Something wrong ?」
French 「How about your clothes that you'll wear for that period ?」
I 「...I have already sent.」

Am I general as Japanese?
But, after that, I found the postal condition in France, and I was surprised.
I heard, 「There are some courier service in France, but the rate is expensive , and different from Japanese's. Because Japanese service is painstaking. Moreover, the parcel may be stolen or lost on the way. 」
But, dear, French reader is it true?

Today's topic is 「Courier.」
How about the courier service in your countries?

20120514-01.JPGI introduce Japanese courier service as a represensive of Japan, because I used the service by chance, again.

I think the service rates are cheap.
Because some shipping carriers may compete the price to gain business.
I always use 「Kuronekoyamato」which is one of courier.
In the case of the parcel whose size is 80centimeter included length, width and height, it costs \1000.

I go to a convenience store around my home after packing.
Most of convenience stores or supermarkets accept your parcels, and a worker of Kuronekoyamato carries them out of these stores at a scheduled time.

20120514-02.JPGConvenient stores in Japan are very useful, because there is an ATM and a post inside or outside a convenient store.
I would like to introduce it for another occasion.

20120514-03.JPG↑This is the logo of Kuronekoyamato.
It stands for gentle delivery like that parent cat carries a kitten.

20120514-04.JPGI put a corrugated box next to a casher, and its size is somewhat big.
It costs about \1400.

20120514-05.JPGFirst, fill in a form.
You can designated various things except address and phone number.
For instance, delivery time specification that can be designated the date and time.
Usually, it is delivered within a day or two.
But it is good for a person who only stays at night because of work or wants to be delivered in the morning because she's busy with housework at night.

And, fill in another request; fragile or don't shake it.

If you want them to deliver foods by refrigerated transport, you need to pay extra fee.

And then, there is the COD system, and it means Cash On Delivery.    
In the case of the firm that bears the fee, for instance, when you return goods purchased by mail order, the system is usually used.

20120514-06.JPGWhen you give a form to store clerk, he or she passes a bar code a scanner.
Then, it is under controlled and can be tracked.

20120514-07.JPGThis parcel will get the destination tomorrow.
If it won't be delivered, it gets a big problem.

There are many small trucks in a city, because a lot of people often use these courier services in Japan.

If I could not use the service, I would feel inconvenience.
How do you send your parcel in your countries?

Smoking and smoked...

The end of April and the beginning of May are holiday season in Japan.
It is called "Golden Week" or "A Long Holiday", and schools and companies are closed for this period.
Besides, many events and festivals are held every each place.

The Golden Week consists of the national holiday, and week end.
Then, the days of the holiday are different by each year.
In case of this year, holidays are ...
April 28-30th and May 4-6th.
(Some people traveled abroad, because of they took days off for 9 days included May 1-2nd)

Most of places are crowded for the period.
My family usually gets close to nature around our house, and doesn't take a trip.
It's our usual schedule of the Golden Week.
But, this year we tried to do something different.

We tried to smoke some foods.
Smoking is a one of the way of processing that strengthens the flavor and gets them to preserved foods by smoke.

Though a smoking device was sold, my husband made it with big cans.
The first picture shows him and our children, and he explained how to make it to them with the blueprint.

Our children are not interested in it.
.... It's the picture that shows the mood.

20120507-02.JPGThese are many chips of cherry blossom's wood picked at the mountain nearby, and they are crushed by a grinder.
I think many people know the fragrances of smoked foods are different using various kinds of wooden chips.
The cherry blossoms' fragrance is good.
Usually, people buy wooden chips for only smoking.
I wonder if I can use the wooden chips that we made.

20120507-03.JPGIf we master the way of the smoking, we could make bacon and ham.
But, we were all amateur, so we smoked only something easy.
For instance, we smoked eggs, sausages, chicken on the bone, cheese, been curd, cod roe, and salmon. (The picture shows boiling chicken and eggs)

While I was ready with foods...

Our smoking device was finished.
We made a fire with charcoal on bottom of the lower can, and put wooden chips on it.
The smoke rose to the upper can.
The device can be put two wire nets inside of those two cans, and we put foods on them.

Furthermore, we can also hang foods.
Because smoking takes around 2 hours, we made the device with three-way to smoke a lot of foods at a time.
We're greedy.

20120507-07.JPGSmoking was finished when we were about to eat dinner.
We could smoke well even it was our fist time.

We don't have a long holiday until summer vacation after Golden Week.
Today is the last day of the Holiday...
If adults and children think about it , they all get disappointed, but still, let's try again~!!

The garbage, how do you take it out?

This is the first picture↑ Do you know what it is?

The answer is the garbage disposal area.
The garbage that is always produced by a human being who lives.
I think there are various methods of taking out garbage in each area and country.
The residents usually do it as a part of life.
We cannot know how to take out garbage in a country where we just go on a trip, don't we?
I don't know how people in other countries, either.

Then, I will introduce common way of taking out garbage in Japan.   

I will write about Hamamatsu city where Miko lives as an example.
But the condition and way of it is almost the same in other places in Japan.

I usually take out ....
1.「combustible garbage」on Tuesday and Friday.  
2.「garbage that a part is recyclable , but the rest are combustible like a plastic」on Thursday
3.「empty bottles, cans, and plastic bottles for recycling」every other Monday
4.「incombustibles」every other Wednesday

20120501-02.JPGThe garbage box used at each local area is different.
The residents of 30 houses nearby pay together for a garbage box.

These boxes piled up upside down are used to separate into recyclable garbage as I state above as 3.
After collecting them, garbage men put the boxes upside down.

And, we basically take out garbage in the morning in Japan.
I have to do it by 8:30 every week day with my group's rule.
Taking out before sunrise or the previous day is prohibited.

We're on duty that we clean and check our garbage site in turn.
If I find something strange left there, I have to bring it back to my home temporarily.
We do so, because the garbage site remained dirty is unsanitary, and number of illegal dumping will increase.
It is a just moral; normal social behavior, and we have to worry about the eyes of around people.    
So we cannot take out garbage in unnormal way.

20120501-04.jpgHowever, all garbage sites anywhere are clean because of such rules.
It is amazing that here is a garbage site, but it doesn't have any dust.

20120501-05.jpgPerhaps, the truck cleans the road early in the morning in Paris.
But there is no such system in Japan.
Mostly, we clean the road in front of our house on our own.
In case of an apartment, a manager of the apartment cleans the road.
So, wasting a trash on the road is a thoughtless action, though some people do.
Children are taught that,「Don't waste a trash on the road」at the school or by their family.

20120501-06.JPGThe story strays from the topic...
We can only use half-transparent garbage bag in Hamamatsu city. 
The vinyl bag like the photo is sold at a supermarket.
Of course, it's not harmful to our health.

There are some boxes for recyclables; carbonate boxes, papers, and milk cartons, for instance, at the storefront of the supermarket.

20120501-07.jpgThe quantity of garbage has gradually reduced in Hamamatsu city, because the recycling movement is fully known to people.
Still, I think there is a lot of garbage in Japan.
How do you take out garbage in your countries?

Hamanako Garden Park

I went to my favorite place, 「Hamanako Garden Park」yesterday.
It's a big park laid out by Hamamatsu city for a flower exhibition.
Now the exhibition was over, though it is maintained enough for local citizens as a place of recreation and relaxation.

There is a 「Monet's garden」at the end of the garden. 
I said "It's the best season to see tulips because of full bloom.", and took my family to there.

20120423-02.JPGThis park's 「Monet's garden」is very beautiful.
It is laid out completely like the garden laid out by Claude Monet in Giverny in France.
I went to there 10 years ago, and I remember the admission fee was high, but the garden hadn't been looked after enough.
However I was a little moved, because I realized Monet painted Water lilies at this place.

「Monet's garden」of Hamamatsu is a copy of the original one.
But I can see how much the garden designers care about the gerden.
It is an extreamely well- kept garden.
Besides, the admission fee is free, and that's why I recommend it.

I talked to the garden designer about the plants of the garden.
He planted almost all the same plants as the original Monet's garden a few years ago when the exhibition was held.
Now, he choose plants that give the same image with his idea.
There are many rare flowers, so he orders almost the entire these flowers through the Internet.

My husband and I know most of plants, because our hobbies are gardening.
Still, we are impressed with the garden every time we visit.
In case of a tulip, only some quite unusual kinds ones are planted.
For instance, does this red tulip look like a rose? ↓

20120423-05.jpgThis one's each flower leaf's end is like a fringe. ↓

20120423-06.JPGThis one has many flower leaves like a peony.

20120423-07.jpgThis one is really gorgeous as you can see!

20120423-08.jpgThese tulips are also all rare breeds.

I feel embarrassed saying about its price as I talk about beautiful flowers.
But, rare breed's bulbs are expensive.
I know gardening costs an awful amount of money, because I keep my garden.
So, I'm very impressed by the fact that so many rare kinds of tulips are planted in such a huge garden.
Furthermore, the color, the height, and the blooming time of plants are all perfectly calculated!!

A pond that water lilies float in is some way along the garden.
This place is also quite the same as the real pond.
It is a little later that wisteria around Taiko-bridge and water lilies in the pond will bloom. 

20120423-13.jpgThe only different thing is not to be able to enter a house of Monet.
Perhaps, it's too much work to take care of the house in addition to the garden..
I want the house to be opened as a café.

20120423-14.jpgThe garden will have beautiful roses in a month.
Then, I'll be back!


An eel VS. A conger

I returned to my native place, Hiroshima, for a short time.
Japanese love cherry blossoms, and they enjoy cherry blossoms viewing in the season.
If I go somewhere to do it ..., I must choose Miyajima.
Miyajima is one of the Three Great Sights of Japan, and also a World Heritage.
Especially, it is great when cherry blossoms bloom in spring, and the leaves turn red or yellow in autumn.

By the way, Miyajima also attracts people's attention now for another reason.
Japanese long-running TV drama, 「Tairano Kiyomori」is being broadcast now, and Miyajima is one of a place in connection with it.
(This is the photo of a poster of the drama)

20120416-02.jpgTairano Kiyomori is the person who entirely remodeled Itsukushima Shrine that had been built, at the end of Heian era.
He had big power, so he built the Shrine and the huge Torii in the sea.

20120416-03.jpgA ferry boat is passing though between the torii.
It is only available at the high tide.

Look at these pictures of Miyajima.
They're presents for everyone watching my blog.

20120416-05.jpgNow, I start telling today's main topic.
Hamamatsu where I live is famous for 「eel dishes」with eel that are caught in Hamana Lake.
Miyajima is famous for 「conger dishes」with conger that are caught in the Inland Sea.
I think Japanese who compared both by eating may be few, though I like both.

Let me introduce a very famous eel restaurant,「Ueno」.

20120416-06.jpg「Ueno」sold 「conger lunch box」at Miyajima station 100years ago.
Now, they still sll lunch box and we can also eat in the restaurant.

20120416-07.jpgDo you know the difference between 「a conger」 and「an eel」?
Conger lives in shallow sea, and eel basically lives in the river.
Both are good to eat, and it is said that eel has more fat.
This is conger → → →

20120416-08.jpg「Ueno」is not only good restaurant that serves delicious dishes, but also the interior decoration is retro and nice.
It is always crowded with tourists and locals , though the restaurant has a space where some antique are exhibited, so they may not get tired of looking.


Can Japanese draw comics?

It is drawn by me, and posted on my refrigerator with magnets.

I and my son are huge fan of「ONE PIECE」that is one of Japanese comics.
He asked me to draw some characters of the animation.
「Let me see...
 I can't remember how their face are, even you say so...」
Finally, I drew them as looking at a calendar of ONE PIECE.
And it was a single chance to write, because I wrote with a ball point pen.
There is something wrong with my drawing as compared with the original designs, but I don't care about it.

When I drew those faces, a question came to me.
Japanese comics are popular all over the world,
and a lot of people read the comics and TV animation.
But, do you draw such kind of characters?
For instance, do children in other countries draw characters of ONE PIECE by themselves?

I was born in 1970's,
And I grew up with watching TV animation; 「HEIDI a girl of the Alps」, and「Doraemon」.
When I was an elementary school student, I watched 「Those Obnoxious Aliens」「Candy Candy」, and read comics.
At the same time, I also drew comics.
That is an ordinary thing for girls, and my friends and my sister also drew pictures like comics, or comics with a plot like me.
(Of course, I remember that there was a boy who could draw comics well, not only girls)

So, I sometimes draw comics like this ↓

20120409-02.JPGBut my 7-year -old daughter said,"Mmm... your pictures are a little strange"
Perhaps, my touch is different from present's. Oh,no.

Then, we asked a girl who lives in the neighborhood and can draw well to draw a picture of modern touch.
This is a popular character even overseas, Hatsune Miku↓

Definitely, it is different from my age.
My daughter keeps the picture carefully.

She wants to be good at drawing like me.
So, her favorite book now is this↓

20120409-04.JPGIts title is「Munekyun Manga Irasuto」.
It is an instruction book of drawing pictures of girls' faces well.
There are some instructions of keeping face balance between left and right, various expressions of eyes and fingers, fashion's point, and position etc...

There is a similar book in my childhood.
Therefore Japanese may be good painters.
And, it may make comic artists.

However, public impression about comics in these days is much different from in my childhood.   
When I was a child, comics were not culture, and just kids' amusement.
If adults read comics, people looked at them dubiously. 
If a kid was heavily into comics and animations, he was called 「Otaku」,and made a dull and withdrawn impression.

But now, there is the trend of the times that comics are part of culture, because comics are popular all over the world.
These days, even if an adult says "I love comics", people don't think the person is strange.
The passage of time is wonderful.

There is an official 「Comics club」 in the school, and some children spend after school hours there to read and draw comics.
My niece belongs to the club, too.
She who loves books reads a book mingled comic and historical novel.

20120409-07.JPGThe comics' culture, which is created in Japan.
It may evolve more and more from now on!

I love Takoyaki

Recently, I have been to my favorite 「Takoyaki shop」.
Today, I'm writing about Takoyaki, introducing the shop at the same time.

I wonder if you, who read this blog outside Japan, know about Takoyaki. Do you? 
Some of you might know about it even if you have never tasted it before because it is often seen in Japanese comic books and animation.

Takoyaki is popular for Japanese people.
It's almost a snack rather than meal, and everyone from kids to adults likes it.
It's a thing like a hamburger in the United States or crepe in France.

Takoyaki originated in the Kansai region of Japan, but now you can find it all over the country.
Its shape is round and looks almost all the same, but the size of a shop, the price, and the taste of Takoyaki are different at each shop.
My favorite「Takoyaki」is made at this shop.

20120402-02.JPGA very friendly man manages this place on his own.
He makes and sells only 「Takoyaki」.

20120402-03.JPGA special hot plate with round hollows is used to fry Takoyaki.
First, flour and water are mixed up together and poured into the hollows. Then, chopped octopus and vegetables are added to it. After the half bottom part of the Takoyaki is done, the Takoyaki is turned upside down.
When it happens, some portions of Takoyaki come out from the hollows, which you cannot see on the pictures above. The portions are pushed into the hollows as they are turned upside down.
It finally forms the shape like a golf ball.

In Japan, a lot of people make Takoyaki at home with their own little Takoyaki plate. I have my own at home, of course!!
However, it's kind of difficult to make Takoyaki that have a nice ball-like shape.
It's so much fun to roll Takoyaki to make them round with the pick, though!
That's why Takoyaki party is very popular among the young.

By the way, the man working at the Takoyaki shop loves baseball.
Around just outside of the shop, there is a little space where customers can wait until their Takoyaki is ready or eat it if they want to. He placed signboards and chairs which used to be set at a baseball stadium somewhere. He said he got them from auction.

I found a mark,↓, on the counter of the shop and looked down to see what's there; then, there was a wooden step that he made.

20120402-06.JPGKids who come to the shop with their mother almost always try to see how Takoyaki is made, but they are too short to reach the counter・・・・.
The Takoyaki man is such a nice guy, so he made the step for little kids.

20120402-07.JPG「The shoe sticker」is there to let people know that it's okay to step on with their shoes on.
When Japanese people see this kind of step, they often hesitate to get on it with their shoes on because they think the step might be a chair.
If there was no sticker, I would ask the man, "Is it okay to step on?" before I let my kids to get on it.
I guess that's the way most Japanese people think and act when they are that kind of situation.

20120402-08.JPGSeriously, Takoyaki here is so good!
It's only 300 yen for 8 pieces per pack.
I like Takoyaki because it's hot and round like a ball, and I can finish it by one bite.
I think Takoyaki is cute and that's what grabs Japanese heart.


Skating is one of fun in winter.

Are there skating rinks in your town?

In Japan, cities have skating rinks.
These rinks are mostly used as indoor swimming pools during summer, and as skating rinks in winter only, and many people at all age use them.

I had taken lessons of skating in my childhood.
Children like me are usual, (but basically girls are).
Some people take lessons of skating, and other people do skating as a hobby or sport.

20120326-02.JPGThe total fee includes an admission fee and the rental fee of a pair of skates is about \1800.
Children pay half the price.
Is it a little bit expensive? , even Japanese think so.
But, it can't be helped.
Because the management fee of the skate rink costs a lot of money.

There is the place for renting a pair of skates, entering into the facility after buying a ticket, and then, you ask the employee to borrow them of own size.

Change your shoes into a pair of skates in the locker room.
The facility is used as a swimming pool during summer, and this place is also used to change the clothes for the same reason.

Well, let's go to the rink.
I love this moment from my childhood upward.

20120326-05.JPGThe facility has two ice rinks, large and small.
Though those rinks were not crowded because of a weekday before noon, many families and couples dating come here during a weekend, and the rinks become be crowded.

The man wearing blue jacket on an above picture is a staff of the skate rink.
Actually, there are other staffs except him, and they skate and circle on the rink like a lifeguard.
They asked some people who can't skate if they need their help.
And, they also teach you how to skate if you ask them.
Of course, it is only a few minutes, but it is quite helpful.

20120326-06.JPGMy daughter became a little bit better skater with their help, too.
She likes Mao Asada who is a Japanese skater, very much.
In Japan, skating has been popular from old years though, especially the resent years, skating becomes very popular because of the activity of young Japanese skater.

Some kids who learn skating seriously skated on the rink.

20120326-07.JPGBy the way,
An ice rink gradually gets many lines and holes, because many people skate on the rink and shave ice of it.
Then a staff keeps a rink in good condition with a special vehicle like a below picture a few times a day.
First, shave the surface of a rink, and next, sprinkle water on ice.
Then, the new layer of ice will be made.
This work takes about 20 minutes though; you will feel great to skate on the rink whose maintenance of ice was just finished!

20120326-08.JPGWhen I saw the rink and I found a message in Japanese; that means「Fight! Japan!」
I realized that such a message was hidden even here.


「Salt Koji」is popular now!

I make miso every year and every this season.
Then miso which I made yesterday is this.↑
Miso is made of soybean, rice, koji, and salt.
An episode that tells about making miso is this link.

It is white color because it is just made now.
But, it becomes brown in a half year, because it will be fermented by koji.
Then I will be able to eat it.
Koji is a kind of bacteria which human beings have utilized from old times, and it is living!

20120319-02.jpgThis picture shows koji on rice.↑
Koji is sold at koji shop, and this operation is also conducted by the workers at the shop. When I went to the small shop, it was very crowded.
The moment I thought why (It is rude), I became aware of the reason.  
Now, the thing called Salt Koji is very popular.

Salt Koji is the seasoning made of salt, koji, and water.
It has been the boom, since it was broadcasted. 

Salt Koji can be easily made on your own if you get koji.
When it is finished, Salt Koji is put on meat and vegetables, and then they are grilled.
I heard that koji made food more nutritious, and tastier.
The efficacies of Salt Koji is skin enhancement, intestinal disorders control, and increase in immune strength etc...
Only replacing salt with Salt Koji in case of using salt may be more effective to your bodies.

So....I did.

20120319-03.JPGI Mixed koji, salt and let them ferment for about a week.
In about two days, it may be completed.
Though, it looks same as this.

I feel it's fun to keep and watch bacteria.

I have another bacterium.
It's a bacterium for making yoghurt.

20120319-04.JPGIt's named Yoghurt of the Caspian Sea, and the bacteria of yoghurt can be cultured easily.
It becomes yoghurt in a day after being put the bacteria into milk.
I have made yoghurt by this method many times for three years, because I put the rest of previous yoghurt into milk repeatedly.
My intestine has been working well since I started eating the yoghurt!
Though Yoghurt of the Caspian Sea has been known in Japan since 10 years before, did you know it?  

This is the second bacteria of our family.
Bacteria, bacteria, bacteria!
It's fun living with those bacteria.

Well, I found an article about that "A drink named KOMBUCHA is popular among people who well care about own health."  in the paper.
If Japanese hear the name, they find it's a strange name.
Because it must be a Japanese product's name.
Besides, KOMBUCHA is hot seaweed tea in Japan.
But, in point of fact, the drink is KOUCHAKINOKO that was popular as a health drink in Japan.
The drink is a fermented drink that can be cultivated at home, too.
It might be a big mistake that it is named so, but people may have discovered new merits in bacteria worldwide.
