Toshiko Okanoue Exhibition at the Teien Museum

Toshiko Okanoue Exhibition at Teien

 

My sister, my brother in law and I went to an exhibition in Tokyo. It was an exhibition at the Teien Art museum in Tokyo. We saw Toshiko Okanoue’s artwork. She makes collage artworks that are like eerie dreams. A lot of her artwork have women in them, but their heads are often replaced with an inanimate object. Her artwork really went well with the art deco interior of the museum.

VOCABULARY:

Eerie

Inanimate

went well

Beer walking with a stranger back in Japan 飲み歩き

Long time no post folks, so I thought I’d share this one.

Back in May, over the Golden Week holiday, a very special person from Jabble’s past was in town for a few days.

Anyone remember this beautiful big man’s face? That’s right…Ryan!

So how to celebrate such an occasion? Well, why not do what we so often did when he was still in Japan: walk around Tokyo drinking beer!

Oh, and our lunch time (beautiful) mistake: a bowl of fatty miso ramen.

ごっつ ラーメン (Gottsu Ramen)

Oddly, after lunch I didn’t feel nearly as bad as I thought I would. (I followed Dave’s advice and tried to limit the amount of soup I ate. Ha ha!)

Thank you ごっつ ラーメン (Gottsu Ramen)! You were worth every minute of the food coma.

Welcome back to Japan, Ryan! You’ve been missed!
