Kokubunji Apartment For Rent

2020年07月26日 掲載

カテゴリー:International people


It was given out that Fuji Rock Festival was called off a couple months ago.
That news made me so sad.But, we have no choice under these circumstances. 
I hope this event will take place without failures next year.






Newly built apartment has been contracted by many people.
The rest of the room is only five,so far.
We got the pictures of the room updated a few days ago.
It must be easier to image the room than what it used to be.

And you can finally tour the room.
It is no use considering whether or not you tour the room.
I'm sure that this room is a good value for money.
It must be worth seeing.

If you are interested in this one, you might want to contact us sooner than later.
Please feel free to contact us.

カテゴリー:International people

Coronavirus started to come out again these days.
I assumed that the pandemic was completely over a couple of weeks ago.
But,under these circumstances, I'd say that we have to give thought to living  with coronavirus in future.

A  newly built  came near to being compreation soon.
Some of the rooms have been contracted.
This apartment allows residents to move in from early Aug.
As of today, although it is just under construction, you can tour the room as long as you make an appointment in advance.

Seibu Kokubunji Line

2020年05月31日 掲載

カテゴリー:International people

Seibu kokubunji line is served from Kokubunji to Higashimurayama.There are  five station until we get to the Higashimurayama station.

Seibu Kokubunji Station


This is a major station in western tokyo.If you get the rapid train,it takes you 20min to get to shinjuku.Near the station,there are a number of shops.you can easily  get daily use items and food there.
There are a lot of good-value-for-money apartments around there.
And,in Kokubunji,There is a place for those who love Haruki Murakami.He ran a Jazz cafe at the south of Kokubunji station until he came out as a writer.
He must have been inspired by something here.If you are "Harukist",Kokubunji may be worth moving in.

Koigakubo  Station

There is the city office of kokubunji.Few shops are around the  station.
But the cost of living can keep down as long as you have a bike.
I think that going around a low-priced supermarket gives you a lot of fun.

Takanodai  Station

There is a famous college,Musashino art college.
We call it "Musabi" for short.Many famous people graduate from the school. Above all, It reminds me of Ryu Murakami.I was absorbed in his novels,When I was young.It strikes me that a part of my belief system consists of him.

Ogawa Station

Speaking of Ogawa station,there is a factory of Bridgestone corporation that is a manufacturer of tyres.The road near the station has a lot of shops,so you won't have trouble finding food and daily use items.
Ogawa station makes it possible for us to change the train for seibu shinjuku.It take you about 35min to get there.

Higashimurayama Station

Higashimurayama station is the terminus of Seibu Kokubunji Line.The east of the station is many stores such as Ito Yokado department store.
In front of the station,There are three tall trees.
The trees were planted to honor Japanese famous comedians,Ken Shimura some years ago.Unfortunately,he passed away these days because of coronavirus.All Japanese have grown up seeing his sketch.
When the news was given away throughout JAPAN, it gave us a shock and we felt sad.
It is not an overstatement that All Japanese are bereaved of him.
Thank you Ken Shimura. R.I.P.

Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.

2020年05月22日 掲載

カテゴリー:International people

On 11march 2011.It is the day when almost all Japanese cannot forget.
Tohoku earthquake and tsunami occurred,to make matters worse,it caused the Fukushima daiichi nuclear power plant to explode.What with the tsunami and what with an exploded plant,the footage from television provoked my feeling of anxiety one after another.I remember as if it happened yesterday.

As a matter of fact,I was born and raised in Iwaki city in Fukushima until I turned eighteen.
The center of Iwaki city is located about 45kilometers south of the Fukushima daiichi nuclear power plant.When the earthquake happened,I couldn't get in touch with my parents at all,because of the disruption of a phone line.Afterward they finally had answered my call when it became midnight.Anyway, I was relieved then.

And then there was something about my hometown.It had been a month since the earthquake happened.I was finally determined to go see my hometown.I left Tokyo by car and I made it north up on a cracked road.Almost every road was still paralyzing due to disasters.It may have taken me more than 10hours to get there as far as I remembered.

It occurred to me that I'd like to see the sea I liked.Whenever my life seemed gray,I went there before.It was a perfect place to give a deep thought to something.I would often walk slowly or sit down on the beach,while seeing distant ships,brave surfers, seagulls in the sky,a lighthouse on the hill and wide sea horizon.Seeing that scenery or listening to the sound of waves would often bring me to a good mindset.Strictly speaking,however,the fact that I'd rather have to face the truth  than I want to see something.So I had to go to the most precious place of mine to make sure of something.

  
After seeing my parents,I drove my car to the destination. I saw the broken pavement all over the place on the way. I had to give full attention to those cracks.After a while,I managed to get to the port. Some ships were not anchored on the sea, but the ground. It is certain that they could not have found any fish in that place ,though.
  
The pier near the aquarium was being taken down under the power of the tsunami.Just as many people got killed in the tsunami,most creatures in the aquarium got done.What with sign poles and signals.Whatever I could see was being down.While I was in the leaning world,I got a little insane. To gather myself, I was somehow seeing a dog heading for somewhere.But the dog was going away in front of me without even getting a glimpse of me and went out of sight.I felt like I made myself left alone all over the world.
 
I drove the car to the next place I want to go.Near the seaside residential area,there is a pile of the debris left on either side of the road.I saw many self-defense forces help victims with reconstruction. When the coast came into view, I was at a loss for words. As might be expected,there were no houses.It appeared that almost all houses got swept away by the tsunami. It is hard to say what to put that miserable scenery into words.It was obvious that the disasters deprived people of the ordinary day. Visiting there made it clear that I lost what my landscape used to be.Whether it's good or worse,that was true.
 
I got out of the car and stood on the shore. On the edge of the surf,waves kept breaking regularly as ever.A seagull was making a circle in the sky over and over as if anything wasn't up.

On 14 march 2020,all JR Joban line, which runs along the shore in fukushima,reopened again.It has been nine years since the Fukushima daiichi nuclear plant exploded and leaked cesium and polluted water. 

I hope that those who lived there get back their life as soon as possible. 
The situation is getting better everyday.No matter what happens,we should not throw away what little hope we have until the last moment. I am sure that a bright future will open up for those who believe in their belief.

Fuji Rock Festival

2020年05月15日 掲載

カテゴリー:International people

How do you spend your summer vacation?
In my case,I usually go to a summer music festival,Fuji Rock festival every single year.
It always makes me feel relaxed to listen to my favorite music in nature.
To tell the truth,while I am in that place,working is completely out of my minds.I have alcohol throughout the day despite usually not drinking so much.There are a lot of diverse food booths in the venue.
The Following day,I regret having overeaten every year.
A major concert stage is divided in four.
I walk in the massive venue all day long,while looking for my favorite band playing.
As night fell ,my legs always gave out.


Please let me introduce the four concert stages and attractive area.

GREEN STAGE

GREEN STAGE is the most huge stage of the four, and the main one of Fuji ROCK,in which it holds about 40000people.I have seen a famous musician and band play there.
I listened to Jack Jonson sing, having beer in the early afternoon.Also I saw Bob Dylan sing "Blown in the wind"in the evening.
Above all,in 2016,having seen both "WILCO"and "BECK"excited me the most.
That's because they are no less than a superstar of mine.


WHITE STAGE

WHITE STAGE is the second largest of the four,in which it can hold about 15000 people.I saw Thom Yorke singing and dancing in the heavy rain.And I  was glad to have been able to see "LCD Soundsystem",either.


RED MARQUEE

The characteristic is that a massive red tent comes over the concert stage that holds 5000people.It is the only stage to be played all night.Many groovy music like electronic or dance music are played by an up-and-coming DJ.
The audience dance all night as if they have put away their soul somewhere.The good playing of RED MARQUEE reminds me of Toro Y Moi ,Mac DeMarco and Cortney Barnet.
If only I were ten years younger,I would be up and dance all night.


FIELD OF HEAVEN

This stage is in the very back of the venue,in which It can hold 5000 people.This place is surrounded by holy-ish woods.When the night fell,A mirror bowl gives off light and lights up around.
The unique atmosphere makes me feel happy.What a holy place it is.
Actually I love this place the most.I listened to "The Meters","The  Waterboys"there.
Above all,I was quite impressed to see Japanese band"Qururi" play "Baranohana".
The mirror ball has lighted up raindrops and woods and darkness.
I felt that groove and melody went up in the sky.


OASIS

"OASIS"is the place where we take a break.There are a number of food booths in a row and you can get the diverse dishes.Above all,I encourage you to eat" Mochibuta-gushi".
That is a pork grilled on skewers in bite-sized pieces.
There are two seasonings.One is salt,the others tare sauce.Both of them go well with alcohol.
It is as good a taste as to make me crave it over and over again.
I would often eat it no less than ten a day. Please give it a try.


This festival is held on the mountain.
As you know,mountain weather is changeable.Just in case it rains and a temperature is down,you should put on a waterproof coat.

As of today, under the influence of coronavirus,I don't understand whether Fuji Rock can be held or not this year.as far as I see the  lineup,I can't wait.Almost all artist is the musician I want to see.The Strokes,Tame Impala,FKA twigs, DISCLOSURE and more,have been announced,so far.

Anyway,I hope this situation settles down more quickly.
