Irori dinner

I had dinner in a small old Japanese restaurant near my house.
In winter a hearth is constructed in the floor, it’s Irori.
It is usually located in the center of the living room of old farmhouses.
It’s good to sit around the fire and have some Japanese dishes with Sake.

Hatsumoude.The new year’s visit to a shrine

On the new year’s day right after I heared Joya-no-kane,the bells of New Year’s Eve,I visited a shrine in my hometown.

I threw ten yen coin in the offertory box,rung bells,two bows, two claps, made wishes and one bow. That is the way we pray at the shrine.

I wished the new year for health, happiness, and so on.

May this year be a great one!

I was featured in a magazine ” CROISSANT ” published by Magazine house.

“A fantastic motorcycle ride for foreigners visiting Japan.” Under this vision, FUN RIDE JAPAN was established.
