New York

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

I went to Sedona, Arizona and New York during the japanese Golden Week.
I visited the Brooklyn flea market, where I found vintage clothes, antiques, original artworks and also many places to eat.
In the picture, you can see Manhattan skyline in the back.

I had the chance to see the Bike Month NYC, which is held every May.
There were so many riders in the street and I was very surprised!

New York

It seems that cycling is booming in NY and Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the fun, convenience, and ease of cycling in NYC.
It is known as the biggest cycling event in the US.

The third picture is the long hallway of The Cable Building on 611 Broadway.
This space is very strange and I felt I was dragged in.
I made some researches about the building and found out that it was used as a power plant for the city’s cable car system.

The weather in Tokyo is very weird so please take care of yourself!

Meiji Jingu Shrine

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Last month, I went to Meiji Jingu Shrine for a walk; a traditional Japanese Shinto-style wedding ceremony and a Spring Grand Festival was both held there.
The first picture is the wedding parade and the groom and the bride walking to the shrine with their parents and relatives.
I think this traditional wedding style is very beautiful.

At the Spring Grand Festival, Japanese traditional music and dance called ”Gagaku” was performed.
The players are wearing interesting costumes so I took pictures.

I searched about Gagaku a little bit and found out that it has been performed for several centuries and was introduced in Japan from China. Also it is known as the oldest orchestra music in the world.

I was very lucky to see this traditional Japanese performing arts during my walk.

Italy #2

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

I think Italy is the world capital of food.
It’s famous for its rich flavors and delicious tastes, and one of my favorite thing to do during the trip was to have a great meal.
I went to a restaurant called OSTERIA AL MOLO 13.
This restaurant is very popular and you can order fresh seafood.
The inside of the restaurant had a great atmosphere: there were cute fish drawings and colorful paintings on the wall!

The paper bag with the restaurant’s logo and the cookies are very cute.

I tend to take pictures whenever I see something interesting so I always carry my iPhone and my camera with me.
In a different restaurant, I had a great prosciutto.

I went to a museum near the hotel and I realized, after taking this picture, how the color balance of the tiles and my coat’s collar’s were similar.

I ate many great food and was able to walk around the city so I enjoyed very much but got a bit tired.
