クリスマスを意識したつもりが。。。

月に一度のネイルサロン。
時期的にクリスマスネイルだなぁ、と思い。。。
それっぽくしてみたつもりが、結果そうでもなかった(笑)

I had my nails' design changed after about one month as usual.
As the Christmas season is coming,
I wanted to have them done with something like it,
but the result was not so successful.
I think there should have been some red colors in them.

Anyway, I liked the design, so ...
I quite satisfied with them.
The motif was ring with stone.

There were not any good photographs of thumbs
among the pictures taken at the salon, I tried by myself, and that's it!

The moon-shaped metal parts
made them look like kind of astronomical, didn't it?

After taking photographs at Dairyu temple,
we had dinner at a pizzeria of the reputation.
I wanted to go there for a long time.
The restaurant was stylish with an adult atmosphere.

The chef who was appeared on the photo was my local senior.
He must not remember me, though.

We had a dinner pizza course.
Hors d'deuvres.
Basic pizza of Margherita with smoked mozzarella cheese.
Pizza with Italian sausage and broccoli.
And dessert and coffee.

Though it's slightly far from my house, I want to go there again absolutely!!

Looking for colored leaves, we drove back to Takatomi from Mino city.
Then arrived at Dairyu temple
which was famous for Darma doll memorial service.
I went there for the first time.

There was a big statue of Darma doll in the precincts.
And we could see colored Enkianthus perulatus over the statue.
"満天星" does not read "mantenboshi".
It reads "Doudantsutsuji".

To see the center and the back garden,
we had to enter the main hall of the temple.
So, we paid for the fee and went into the inside.

I could enjoy many elegant views there.
The leaves which had turned into various colors were beautiful.

My favorite pictures are...
The colored leaves which were reflected in the surface of the water.
And the view over the special kind of nandina with orange fruits.

Well, well, finally,
we could take some nice pictures of colored leaves at Dairyu temple.

Again, the continuation of this story will be tomorrow.

After having breakfast, we went to the Oyada Shinto shrine
which was popular for colored maple leaves to take some photographs.
But... almost all the leaves had already fallen.

Then, in disappointment, we headed to the old Udatsu street
in the center of the city.

It was during an event of "Akari-Eemachi",
outdoor lamps were decorated with various butterfly wedge pictures.

When we were strolling in the town, we encountered a lovely dog.
I did not know why, but he blinked his eyes blearily.

We entered a beautiful shop which I found last time I went there.
There were many lovely decorations made of Japanese paper.

With this thing and that, we returned to a good mood.

On the last day of consecutive holidays, I went out to Mino city.
First of all, I dropped in a cafe in Taromaru, Gifu city.

I was surprised to find some cherry blossoms were blooming in front of the cafe.

As for the coffee, I chose deep roasted strong blend.

There were three kinds of service breakfast and I chose French toast.
I put whipped cream on the toast and dusted cinnamon over it.
It was so fluffy and I became quite happy with it.

There's a persimmon field next to my house.
Almost all the persimmons came to full maturity.

I am not sure but, this year, the color of the persimmon leaves are nicely colored.
They are beautifully tinged with red.

During these consecutive holidays, some helpers came to harvest.
Thanks to them, the harvest of persimmons has finished.

With the persimmons, I made persimmon jam as an annual event.
This year, I made quite a lot!!

I visited all the coffee shops along the "Morning Street"!
This shop was the last one.
I have not been able to go there for a long time
because they close every Sunday, and second and fourth Saturday of the month.

Their coffee was 400 yen.
I normally have coffee, but today, I ordered a cup of tea.
Because I could drink "Ronnefeldt"'s tea
which was German highest grade tea brand.
I chose Earl Grey tea and it was 450 yen per cup.
It had sweet fragrance and rich taste.

Though their service breakfast was one kind, it was very tasty.
The sandwich was big, and filling was plentiful than it looked.

It was a lovely cafe and suitable for the last one.

When I came back from United States, I did some shopping at the airport.
I found an interesting product at a souvenir shop and bought it for me.

I tried it today!
It was a pack of powder of white cocoa drink.
And it contained some powder of huckleberry.
On the package, it was written that the white cocoa turned purple.
Actually, the powder was white.

I put 3 teaspoon into the cup.
And once I added hot water to it, it turned into purple!!
It was like a miracle!!
The color was not the one I imagined, but it was really beautiful.

But... I could not think it was a drink.

Anyway, it was delicious.
It tasted slightly strange, though.

I really enjoyed it!
I thought I should have bought it more...

By the way, it was $5.95 per one package.

They matched coffee well.
The cream inside the thin cookie tasted somewhat nostalgic.

I think it's been there for a long time, and I had a breakfast there.
Inside of the cafe was bright and cozy.

I ordered a cup of blended coffee and was 400 yen.
The coffee was served with big mug cup that had bear illustrations printed.


Their service breakfast was only one kind, but it looked gorgeous!
The meat sauce of the spaghetti was a little sweet.
I thought it was homemade.

There were some sweets of fruits and Daigakuimo on the plate.
It was like a petit lunch!

I had been curious about its name,
so I made a small expedition to Hashima, and went to the cafe.
It was some way off the main street.

Their coffee was a value price of 360 yen with free breakfast.
Ogura toast was of course nice!

Well then, where was the Popeye??
Yes! It was on the menu properly!
I still looked for some Popeye goods,
and found a mirror in the distance from me.
It probably was!!

I put a stamp of star-shape just in case.
Maybe you can't see it clearly.

Here's a simple question.
Did they got the permission to use the trademark and illustration?

Their coffee was 400 yen, and served with beautiful cups.

As for the breakfast service, there were choices of toast and sandwich.
I chose sandwich, and it was hot sandwich of Bologna ham.
Along with it, there were half of a mandarin orange,
and two pieces of Japanese cakes.
Did they know I liked them?

Other choice of toast, there also added a piece of Japanese cake.
But... why only one??
The sandwich breakfast looked a bit nicer somehow.

One day at night, I took a stroll around the small town in Portland.
Then I found a cool shop
which was selling assortment goods like gourmet, salt, wine, chocolate etc.

Flowers were also there.

I was attracted by their well selected chocolate from all around the world.
And various tastes of special salt.

I found some Japanese products in the seasoning shelf.
Soy sauce from Shodo island, and fish sauce form Kanazawa.
They were more than just enthusiasm.
I thought both of their package were cool.
They were superior to other foreign products.

Of course I did not buy any of them,
I bought some chocolate as gifts and souvenir for for me also.
I chose Portland's product with much effort.

Here's milk chocolate with sea salt of Oregon.
So delicious!!

The nearest restaurant from the hotel
which I was staying in Portland, was "Denny's".
The logo was slightly different from the one of Japan.

Well, I thought it was a kind of good opportunity.
So, one night, I went to the genuine Denny's.

As I sat at a table, the waitress asked me
"What would you like to drink??", so I ordered coffee at first.
It was $2.09 with free helping.
With the coffee, she put a dish with a lot of cream.
Did she think that I would drink so much coffee??

Well, Japanese Denny's seems to become Japanese original company now,
so the menus of the original Denny's was totally different.
All was American junk food.
For example, huge hamburger, great looking steak etc...

I almost became full just looking at the menu.
Finally, I had "Holiday turkey & dressing dinner" of $9.99.
It was not so bad.
I quite satisfied with its volume, though.

Then I ordered a dessert of "Original Pancake Puppies Sundae"
from the $2 menu.
It was not an actual pancake.
They were freshy fried round donuts.
I liked its combination of hot donuts and cold ice cream and whipped cream.
2 dollars was considerably good price.

I quite enjoyed the American family restaurant.

Today's topic is about sweets in Portland.
The title of "Bear Claw", I will explain it later.

Well then, the donuts shop was very American-like-looking!
It was a common shop in the residential area, and I got some takeout donuts.

The first one is called "Bacon Bite". $2.00
Bar-shaped donuts with maple sugar raised with bacon chips.
I bought same kind of donuts at another donuts shop last time,
and I really liked it.
I like its mixed taste of sweet and savory.

And... the other is the "Bear Claw". $1.50

As I heard of the word "Bear Claw",
an old animation character ran in my mind.

Anyway, it was really huge!
I put my glasses next to it for a comparison.
You see, the width was bigger than my face.

There was a plenty of stewed apple inside the donut
and the thickness was great, too.

As the name said, "Bear Claw" was really like a bear claw.
And it's like a special weapon called "screw driver".

By the way, the taste itself was quite delicious than I expected.

I write about Portland for a while more.
Though, it's all about food.

Today, I write about my best two breakfasts in Portland.

The first one was of "Pine State Biscuits".
It was a specialty store of American popular breakfast of biscuit sandwich.

Coffee was $2.00 with free helping.
And as for the biscuit...
I chose a sweet one, "biscuit with fruit and fresh whipped cream". $5.00

There was plenty of stewed diced apples and cream
on each top of the biscuit which was cut into half.

The biscuit was totally different
from the one of Kentucky Fried Chiken in Japan.
The texture was rather hard and crunchy.

It was approximately 850 yen in total.
When I take into account its volume, it was not so bad.

Well, the second one was North European style cafe "broder nord".
It was a really cool cafe.

Their coffee was $3.00.
And the dish was Danish pancake
which I had wanted to eat, and was $10.00.

The prettiness of its appearance was perfect!!
However, it had a lot of volume.
I think that the diameter of one ball was around 6cm.

I enjoyed the pancake with maple syrup, jam and lemon curd.
It was really delicious!

Still, 1500 yen was expensive for a breakfast.
But it was quite big, so I did not have to eat lunch, so, it was alright.

Anyway, it was delicious, so I was quite happy with it!

My teacher of the "Photo workshop" invited me
to the African live concert at Gifu Art Museum.
She was an official photographer and she allowed me (and some other students)
to take photographs of the concert.

It was a part of the event called "アートまるけっと"
which was directed by Katsuhiko Hibino.
And it was held in front of the flower art tower.

The musician Omar 'Bayefall' Gainde was from Senegal,
and he was the frontman of the band "Afro Begue Band".

I was really impressed by their music.
Both the sound of the percussion instrument and singing voice were so cool.

I heard the live African music for the first time, and I was fascinated!

Here's the picture of the percussion instrument called "djembe".

I really enjoyed both the photography and the live.
Thanks for the lovely invitation!!

Yesterday, I took some photos in the ”138 Tower Park".
Here's some of them which I featured the "Twin Tower" and flowers.

The first one is... the tower is quite in evidence.
Bassia scoparia was terned into red.
But it was a bit late for their best time.

Then, yellow cosmos and tower, large dahlias and tower.
And pink cosmoses which I photographed many times this year.

Finally, it's a shot with Japanese pampas grass.
It seems to have some autumn sorrow.

That's all.
It was a little chilly with autumn wind.
