Visited at “Shibamata”



We visited “Taishakuten” temple at “Shibamata“.

Usually, I move by myself but we have a long term vacation here in Japan, my wife came along.

It was a quite fine day.

Almost blue sky without any cloud.

We, the Japanese call this as “Satuki-bare”, early-summer fine weather.

There were many families and tourists.


With the stature of Tora.

With the stature of Tora.

I started my studio at 9.

It takes 1 hour and a half to visit “Shibamata” station.

Here is famous for the movie “Otoko wa tsurai yo” was shoot in this place.

Actually got a location for several times.

The movie script is based on the simple life and families tie in Shibamata, downtown Tokyo.

The stature of Tora’s sister Sakura

The main characters of the movie named “Torajiro” or just “Tora”.

He travels around Japan and sells the good for his living.

The good could be vegetables or sweetness whatever.

He has a good presentation on selling goods.

As a traveling salesperson, he merely comes back to home.

The family always worry for him not to make trouble.

His sister “Sakura” is a few supporters.

She looks after his elder brother with family love.

The stature of each has a good distance and the direction.

It figures out the family ties.




So many people.

It took an hour to pray.

Not for me but for my wife.

I am interested in the Architecture Art of the temple.

Even in downtown, every shape is beautiful and excellent.

I love the scene of Art of ancient Tokyo people.


Late lunch at “Shibamata” eel



It is high time for us to eat.

There are many restaurant and souvenir shops.

We purchased a souvenir to my parent.

Liver of eel

Start with Liver of eel.

The eel was very popular and so far cheap dishes.

But now this is precious and high price food.

It has beautiful taste and flavor.

A little bit bitter and sweet.

This is what I wanted.

Kabayaki” sauteed eel is my favorite food.

It is soft and moisture with a good flavor.

Fatty but not so strong.

Eat with white rice is the taste of heaven.

I do not know heaven has a menu.

When you visit “Shibamata” not to forget to try this one.

It worth to.

Thanks to my Load.

“You are the sons of the Lord your God. You shall not cut yourselves or make any baldness on your foreheads for the dead. For you are a people holy to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. “You shall not eat any abomination. These are the animals you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat, the deer, the gazelle, the roebuck, the wild goat, the ibex, the antelope, and the mountain sheep. …
