Chang Thai is a Thai Restaurant near JR Station Kurashiki. I love it. Dishes cooked by Chef from Thailand are so delicious ! Do you like spicy or mild ? You can arrange hot taste by yourself. Do you need English menu ? Of course, you can find it there.

Please look at the website of Chang Thai about details.

  • My first exhibition : PHOTO /// 1 ///

My first exhibition "Petit Markt + CORANDA". I had the small dutch fair in July 24th and 25th.

I showed a lot of photos I took on my trip to Holland in Japanese traditional house " kura ". I wanted people who visited the exhibition to feel something about dutch design and culture.

Many people came there. I was so glad. I want to have the dutch exhibition again. Please come to next exhibition.

I went to "field of craft Kurashiki" on May 14th. It is held under the sky every May. This is like a flea market. We can buy various goods handmade in Japan.

When I was looking at handmade scissors, a man told me to try them. He was the man who made them. He said these scissors were good for cutting herb. I found scissors for cutting herb I had wanted for a long time. So I bought a pair of handmade scissors. I like them very much.

I drove to Kibiji Bicchu Kokubunji in 17th April. Every April we can see beautiful peach trees, "Momo no Hana" in Japanese.

These flowers are so unique color, mixed white and red. And you can also see another plant like "Tshukushi (the second Photo)".

Do you know the city Onomichi in Hiroshima ? There are many temples there. It takes about an hour to Onomichi from Kurashiki by train.

KEIMA KAMABOKO SHOP is on the Onomichi arcade. You can buy Kamaboko formed into Shogi piece. Shogi is a Japanese traditional table game. It is a good gift to take home. Of course its taste is so delicious.
