Double Celebration

november 15 is shichi-go-san a day of prayer for the healthy growth of young children sichi-go-sang litterally means seven,five,three in most region around the country boys and girls aged three,boys aged five and girls aged seven visit a shrine with their parents to pray.however november 15 hits regular work day (tuesday) we decided to adjust kyohei's sichi-go-sang this weekend so we can  celebrate hubby's birthday as well which is yesterday november 19.double celebration double the fun and memories with less cost right
we made a reservation to a photography studio to capture kyohei's special day,as we did when my eldest celebrates his day when they are old enough to apreciate we want them to look at there childhood photos,family photos and remember us always even if we are gone or living somewhere who know's.
 photo shoot was fun kyohei enjoyed every minute of i think we have a future model (heheh) his so relax and all the way smiling some little kids hated photography studio because the staff will arranging there pose if they they moved a bit the staff will rearrange it again that was so annoying for some kids.kyohei has no problem with that such a good boy despite of some minor delay around 11:am the studio went busy full of  family like us with there child it took  time for them to  finish everything. the things not went out as we expected  we planned to visit the shrine to pray before we went ahead to the restaurant however because of  delay that i mentioned above.we had no time hubby took a 2:00pm lunch reseravtion a week ago at keio plaza hotel tokyo we have to drive straight ahead to the hotel lucky us the traffic was smooth we made it 15 minutes before two in the afternoon wheew''' that was close.
as always 'glass court restaurant' at keio plaza never failed to impress us the foods and sweets are always yummers.the selection of food is great as well thumbs thumbs up!!the food lover team otani ate so much we cant even that we are full  time to offer pray lets go to the shrine before the sun goes down..
sorry  picture was not clear i only screen shot the first four photos inside the studio parents can only take video  no self photo or selfie  allowed thats there policies totally understandable they sell photo

happy birthday my love

sichi-go-sang omedeto my love

all time fave

no dull moment with kyohei

you are handsome my love


today was indeed a happy and memorable day to all of us.the kids told us that they are happy to.if the children were happy the parents are happy to.another one for the book  -team otani

kamogawa sea world

its been ages since the last time i had a chance to seat and wrote on my blog.i've been so busy at school events and nursing myself after that .i've been suffered from high fever for over a week.i feel so weak and zero appetite my physician told me that maybe because of over fatique and or changing season from summer to now early autumn my body cant coped from still hot day and all of a sudden  chilly night.well im ok now i regained my straight im back with my normal body builder appetite (according to my hubby) moving on to my long over due post
we visit " kamogawa sea world" a month and half ago end of summer to watch there famous (shamu) killer whale show.its my youngest first time to see big whale. so we wanted it to be memorable for him.its only two hours drive from tokyo to kamogawa yet we intentionally waited  until late summer because kamogawa is famous to  surfers to in short we avoiding traffic
the kids had so much fun watching the killer whale show they keep on saying owww!!! and laugh so hard everytime the whale is making big splash of water into the audience.we also watch dolphine show and sea lion show after that. i wanted to watch beluga show before we got inside the aquarium to see the small fishes and look for everyone's favorite "nemo" however the kids wants to watch shamu show once again,and so we did hayy!! well kids day there're the boss right.around two pm when we step out of sea world to find restaurants to have our late lunch we are so hungry all the fishes in the aquarium looks like sushi in the plate heheh!!and because we are just beside of the sea there are a lot of sushi restaurants around.we choose this restaurant due to the local folks glad we asked them they had the freshiest yummiest raw fish ever.we had a memorable weekend kamogawa you've been good to us till next time......
