The situation of classical music in Japan is, how to say, better than before, I guess.

One of the turning points from minor to major was Manga, name “Nodame Cantabile”.

A lot of young Japanese becomes interested in Classical music!! Then Classical music already have citizen right!

 

At the same time, a lot of Japanese players get International awards now, such as Mayuko Kamio Violinist, Sayaka Shoji Violinist, Nobuyuki Tsujii Pianist and so on.

I hope wonderful music become more popular in Japan!!

For everyone who don’t know Shakey’s restaurant, I explain about it from their HP.

Sherwood “Shakey” Johnson opened the first Shakey’s Pizza Parlor® in a remodeled grocery store on 57th and J Street in Sacramento, California in 1954. Originally established as “ye public house” for pizza & beer, Johnson indulged his passion for Dixieland jazz and added live ragtime music to mix, featuring banjos and player pianos throughout his rapidly expanding franchise. As the concept caught on, the Shakey’s name became synonymous with the World’s Greatest Pizza™ along with light-hearted slogans such as “You’ll have fun at Shakey’s, also pizza,” and “You can feed your face at any old place, but you can warm your heart at Shakey’s.”*http://www.shakeys.com/History.aspx

Yes, their Pizza is very nice, and the price also reasonable, in fact, there are a lot of customers in Yokohama Shakey’s on the day.

From our Japanese point of view, it’s typical American style, means very comfortable space and food, although Japanese have complete different culture.

ホルモン焼き丼 Bowl of broiled pig innards on skewers

Bowl of broiled pig innards on skewers

Broiled pig innards on skewers is one of the most popular  food in Japan.

The argument is that offal, which before the World War II had been either discarded or used as fertilizer, was grilled and eaten by Korean female factory workers in Japan and became what is now known as horumonyaki, and that therefore the custom of grilling offal (small intestine) originated not in Korea but Japan. (weblio)

It’s so delicious and healthy food!!
