-･- From My Everyday Life to Japanese Culture -･- Why don't you see the real Japan, not the typical foreigners' version.
I’m staying here to attend a conference (not on a sightseeing trip), but I’m having a jolly good time!
It's great to be here in the heart of downtown, though there was an option for staying at a hotel near the venue just off the town.
Yesterday, I prepared my presentation for the whole morning, left the hotel to have an early lunch and came across a farmers market held in a park behind the hotel.
These fruits and vegetables are all organic.
I’m a lover of vegetables who gets into high spirits just by watching them.
Then, in fine spirits, I visited a Japanese Bento (弁当: a boxed lunch) Cafe; listed on a guidebook. According to the cafe's HP, all Bentos are prepared using mainly natural and organic ingredients from local farmers.
They were perfect!
The summer art festival is taking place in the city, and one of the event sites is next to the hotel.
A band began to play in the early evening.
Look at a bunch of happy faces!
Watching them was enough to make me happy.
