I Love Museums!

I love museums!! Especially museums that we can touch their exhibitions directly. And about such museums, I know one here in Tokyo. It's name is Fukagawa Edo museum and I went there today. It was the second time of my visiting. I have been there several years ago when I was a junior high school student. I remembered that there was really interesting place to visit, and wanted to go there again. So, fortunately, I got the chance to go there again! The museum has an Edo period display of reconstructed Fukagawa Saga-cho people houses. I really love those historical displays. I know a few amusement parks that they have something like Showa period display as well, and love them too. One of them is Namco Namjatown in Ikebukuro, and the other is Raumen museum in Yokohama (it's name is 'museum', but it is an amusement park).

What do I like about the museum I went today is we can touch almost all the things that they are displaying. We can see what they were using at that time, how the room was, what they were eating...etc. So, we can know how people were living in the era through walking around there, going into the houses and see stuffs. And what is amazing is, things there are really payed careful attentions to details, (the measurement of everything is exact) and they even has a robot cat on roof of a house (it is very typical thing in Japanese old days)! Moreover, they have a huge screen at the in the exhibition hall and change times and weather by using sounds and lights! Don't you get interested in the museum? The museum reminds us some emotional things about old good Japanese days. But I'm sure that such a historical place about Japanese culture is interesting for foreigners. How do you think?

Feel Like Doing BBQ

I suddenly thought that I wanted to do BBQ!! My ideal is doing it beside a river. I haven't done it for a long while. Doing it with some friends is really fun, don't you think? It is better to do it with some guys since they work a lot, especially about fire. I like eating rice that is cooked with fire that we make at campsite since it has some burnt rice and it is so yummy. I love it!

It is needless to cooperate with friends when we are making meal outside. And it is fun if we do it with not only a few friends but more friends. I want at least 5 or 6 friends at that time and if I have 7 or 8, it would be much nicer! Going to supermarket with some people to buy some meat, correcting some twigs to help making fire, and chatting while cooking, etc. Everything is so fun. I wanna do that at least in this summer! But the problem is, I don't have many friends. :S And however if I had, i suppose that it would be hard to make a time with all my friends. It is sad since I want to share my time with my friends that I like.

As I wrote before, I don't need a lot of friends. I need just a few good friends that I can talk anything that I want to, enjoy sharing times, help each other when we get into trouble. But I think that things like doing BBQ is different from what I want to do with my good friends. Of course I will definitely enjoy it with my friends too, however I think that it is a kind of things that I can enjoy though I'm with only strangers. (But to tell the truth, I'm shy of strangers, lol.) Anyway, I really feel like doing it now! It must be so enjoyable!!
