Hello, ICHIROYA News Letter Readers!
This is Mei again :D How have you been? I'm fine, and still enormous appetite since autumn.( it's for cold winter! haha)
Last week, I went to one art festival in Mt.Rokko, Kobe, Hyogo. That is "Rokko Meets Art 2016".
Well...it was extreme cold! I went there with my usual trip friends. Last trip, it was heavy raining. Other time, it was storm. May be each of us have special power. Noooo! I want another special power like Harry Potter! haha
Here are some photos of the art festival.
Today's top photo is one of them. Do you know "UFO yakisoba"? It is an instant noodles of Nissin Food Products Company (I am sure you know `Cup Noodle' that is their product!)in Japan. Look at that! UFO fallen down in the lake! ... Did you notice? UFO of yakisoba, and of Unidentified Flying Object. We really liked it and took many photos. Finally, we danced "UFO" of "Pink Lady" in front of that. If you are interested in UFO dance, and UFO yakisoba, please check at You Tube or Google.
Anyway, it was really fun festival. We rode cable cars and met many unique arts. Look at the 4th photo.
It is me and my favorite animal. That animal is made by Atsuhiko Misawa, a famous sculptor. When I saw it, I was just surprised. Because I met his animals before at Takamatsu Art Museum in Kagawa. So I tried to take a same photo like before. That is the 5th photo.
There were many foreign tourists at Mt.Rokko. If you wanna come to there, please check the more information in their HP. Because it is only in autumn. Day time is of course interesting. But night time is also amazing! You can see many photos of their HP, Instagram, and so on.
So, today I wanna introduce some items with "animals" and "mountain" design!
At first, "animals" like by Mr.Misawa.
