Power Spot in Tokyo #1 Imperial Palace

There are places called 'Power Spot' where people feel energy, become comfortable or so on when they visit there. It is also called 'Spiritual Spot' or 'Healing Spot'.
The famous ones in Japan are Mt. Fuji and Ise-Shrine, and in the world wide, there are Machu Picchu, Hawaiian island, etc.

Tokyo has such places as well, the land itself has a power.
So people tend to go there and hang around or even build up shrine or castle.

Roppongi (the street in front of Almond) , Ginza (Miyuki Street), Meiji Shrine, etc, etc.
It depends upon the individual person how you feel from those places.
You might feel just tiredness or nothing from some power spots.
It's different for different people, the feeling might change from person to person.


Anyway, it's often said that Imperial palace is #1 power spot in Tokyo.
Luckily anyone can go there and even get a free-rental bike on Sundays!

I walked back from the office to Tokyo Station yesterday which took about 30 minutes.
I became energetic when I arrived around Imperial Palace for sure!
(The picture was taken by my mobile that's why it's small.)

『パワースポット』って聞いたことありますか?
訪れると元気になったり居心地が良かったりする場所の事です。
またの名を『スピリチュアルスポット』とか『ヒーリングスポット』とか呼んだりします。日本で有名なのは富士山とか伊勢神宮、世界的にはマユピチュとかハ ワイとかが有名とのことです。 東京にもそんな場所があって、土地自体に力があるのですが、人々がそこを訪れたりブラブラしたり、また神社やお城を建てて しまうような場所です。

六本木(アマンドの前の通り)や銀座(みゆき通り)、明治神宮などがそうです。
どう感じるかは人によって違います。パワースポットから何も感じなかったりただ疲れるだけだったりすることもあります。人によって感じ方が変わるのです。



東京で一番のパワースポットとしてよく言われるのは皇居。
幸い、誰でも行く事が出来るし、日曜日はレンタルサイクルなんてのもやっています。

昨日は会社から東京駅まで30分ほど歩いて帰りました。
皇居の近くに着いたときは、確かに元気になりなりました^^。

Folding Keyboard Ryudo

Today is Aquarius new moon.
Write down 10 wishes on the paper or note.
Handwriting is key.

This is folding keyboard, the maker is Ryudo. I was interested, but hadn't had long years. Because I have laptop. But we don't bring computers daily, do we?
So I started to think, if I had that, I might write more often... Before buying it, I investigated which keyboard was the best as there were so many kinds.
First of all, It has to be light, otherwise, it will stay at home.
And thought of the place where I mostly would use... it would be on a train, not a cafe as I commute long hours every day.
So it has to be small and quiet.  I don't want to bother others.
If I use a keyboard on my bag when I seat, my iPhone needs to place to stand, Ryudo is compact, ideal typing and has a stand. It's not very strong but enough to hold my iPhone 7 plus.
One thing I cared was that Ryudo was battery powered not chargeable. So I looked over all other keyboard, but still Ryudo seemed desirable.
It was good buy.








Togakushi Shrine

Take a Shinkansen from Tokyo to Nagano, and rent a car to drive to Togakushi Shrine which is about 45 minutes by car from Nagano Station.

If you want to drive from Tokyo, it takes about 2 to 3 hours additional. 

It's not much distance if I use Shinkansen and Nagano is country so it would be easy drive, I thought,
but I broke into into a cold sweat because there were many hairpin curves.  
It was all right after all.
I thought I should more drive often. There are so many nice places in the suburbs, and my driving skill never gets better if I don't use it.
Well, it is all experience.



Gate of Hou-Kou-Sha

The entire mountain is filled with powerful energy.
It is a place of mythology of opening the rock(Amano-Iwato-legend) in the ancient Japan.
When Amaterasu, the sun goddess, hided in the rock cave upsetting with her brother Susanoo's bad behaviors, some gods and goddesses worked together to open the rock.


Hou-Kou-Sha
Togakushi, means 'hiding inside the door`, this shrine worships tho…

Coloring skin with pencils

Fortunately had a long weekend again.
I took three paid-offs in September, since we have every weekend off, 
I worked less than two of third in a month and left were my holidays,  
which allowed me to post more blogs.

This is very nice, thank to a holiday god.


Lunch hour @ curry shop in Nakameguro
Many Japanese people love curry.
There is clearly distinct between Japanese and Indian curry. But not worry, we love both. Both are popular.
This is Japanese curry, however not usual one. It a vegetarian with avocado topping and rice is type of mixture of 16 different kinds of cereals, which is popular by health conscious person.
Call it 16 Kokumai


I tried to draw Daenerys Targaryen from Game of thrones with coloring pencils @ art class.

It is same as drawing, we have to start with shadow first.

Give it a try.
