Have you ever seen this?

Maneki Neko---"Beckoning Cat"
also known as Lucky Cat, Money Cat or Fortune Cat,
which is believed to give good luck to the owner.
You can see Maneki Neko displayed in stores, restaurants, and also my house *hehe*.
A raised right paw supposedly attracts money, while a raised left paw attracts customers.


The Bullet Train at the maximum speed of 285 kms/h!
This type of Shinkansen (Series 700) is unique in the nose shape designed on aerodynamics.


It doesn't have a diner car.
Enjoy "Ekiben" at your seat.

Do you like Ayumi Hamasaki?
It's a big surprise for me that she is well-known in other countries.
Actually in Japan she is also a fashion-leader not only a music-leader.

Ayu and her boyfriend Tomoya Nagase("TOKIO")

"TOKIO" is a Japanese pop-group.
Their TV show "Tetsuwan-Dash" is very popular.
Many Japanese love this TV show even if they never listen to "TOKIO" music.

This is a hotel room full of Pocket Monsters.
A friend of mine stayed here and gave me these pictures. (Thanks Nao!)
