Dragon : Denmark vs Japan

We went to Lego-land in Denmark. However, we could not enter it at that day due to holiday.

Well, we went to Lego discovery center in Odaiba, Tokyo. Some day, Lego Discovery center makes an event for  adult people.  And, we saw many items. I will write about them later. Today, I will write about dragon.

Both of Hotel Legoland (denmark) and Lego discovery center (Tokyo ) have dragon.  They have common parts but bit difference. So, I write about the dragon.


When you enter to Hotel Lego-land from main entrance, then green dragon gives your welcome. As following dragon. the dragon is so big more than 2 meters tall (maybe)
 The dragon is much wider than a dragon of my images.  And a dragon in my images has two horns as deer. However the dragon has a horns as unicorn (uni??) However, this dragon is enough power. I like this dragon, too. The cute point is his tongue especially the fork of thongue.

Ice cream Spaghetti

When we are in trip to europe, we met several friends. Friends who we met in germany introduce us about ice cream spaghetti. We took dinner together in keln. At that time, we had a topic about ice cream. We like ice cream.  And I was thinking to go hargendaz at that time, because we saw hargendaz in hamburg central station.  In such context of our talking, they introduced about ice cream spaghetti.

Ice cream spaghetti is not a spaghetti. It is an ice cream plate as following.  Above picture is not a spaghetti meat sauth. I thought it was spaghetti with Parmesan cheese, when I saw this photo after coming back to japan. It is really ice cream as following photo.

 It was vanilla ice cram with

You can find ice cream spaghetti in such cafe. If you can see ice cream counter on front of the shop then you may be able to take ice cream spaghetti. The friends said that you should ask menue about ice cream spaghetti before you will enter the shop. Most such shop, you can find. And you should fi…

Starbacks among europe and japan

Starbucks are most cities in the world wide. Sure, we use starbucks in some situation not only weekend but also business sean.



One of my friends said that a NY cheesecake by starbucks is a best cake for him.

And, it is easy to find starbucks in a city. Because we know the symbol of the starbucks, even if they are little bit difference on each countries. The coffee is not so special but the quality of coffees are not so difference.

Well, I found a thing about starbucks. ( I think it is common thing for people who are in EU.) The coffee taste are quite difference among the countries. Before to leave from japan, I thought starbucks are serve coffees similar qualities and taste. We tried not only starbucks  but also local cafe in each cities.  There are many good cafes in germany and north europe. Starbucks served  coffees which are much for each nationalities. So, we could try many difference type of starbucks coffees.

And I was surprised about custom menu. Usually, I change milk to soy …

Rail line stations in North Europe and Germany : View From Japanese

We used 5 airports in our last trip. Copenhagen Airport, Helsinki Airport, Stockholm Airport, Frankfurt Airport and Bile Airport (Denmark). I have used CDG and london airport.

This is Copenhagen airport station. I think I took this photo on last day on europe when we headed to Copenhagen airport.

This is one of the express train. Some trains can being us to central station of copenhagen. However, some trains are not done to the station. You need to check it by yourself throug the schedule board as above photo. Actually, we asked to some people too much time, when we went to central station of copenhage.

Following two photos are in Helsinki. I took them on 1st day of europe. We were surprised about airport station's deepness. In tokyo, we have several deep line but most case they are subway. From airport to center of station, most case, the rail line station is not so deep.  (sure, there stations are underground, too)

We needed to take such long  escalators several times. I have on…

Drinking at Room For Tourists : Compare with Helsinki, Stockholm, Compenhagen

In our travel, most of dinner, we ate in our room by several reason.
1. We wanted to try dinners which are eaten by there countries people
2. We walked too much (average more than 20K steppes per day), so we were so tired for going out for dinner.

So, not all, but most dinner, we took in our room. However, this meaning is not as taking room service. We bought from supermarkets, convenience stores. So, today, I try to write which countries are most easy to get dinner in a travel for drinking/ eating at our room.

We think the dinner is Helsinki was easiest way to get. Because we could find supermarket easier than other country.


We came to Finland through Denmark. So, we really wanted to try Denish. Following photo is a our 1st danish. The danish is a pumpkin taste, It was nich. However, it was not similar to common japanese thinking danish. It was much more soft. 

Comment for above photo. We thought that the coup is yogurt. However...... it was cheese...... cup of cheese..... Basically,…

We found old stile of japan in tokyo, when we walked around Kagurazaka
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kagurazaka Wikipedia Kagurazaka

Like as above, the views are imagined as a seen of edo period.
And such small street, there is many small restaurants. like following photos. I think there are so expensive restaurants around there......~_~;;;;


And main street of Kagurazaka, there is a taiyaki shop. Taiyaki is a japanese sweets which is used red beans. If you like sweets and beans, I think you like this sweet. Taiyaki is so hot, because it is cooked just before serving.

Deers, Nara

Nara is one of a the most famous sightseeing area in japan. It is very historical city as kyoto. But nara is much older city in japan to compare with kyoto.
There is many temples, ancient tomb ............ and deers.  In some case and some area, deers are tagged as harmful animal. Because they eat many agricultural products and skin of trees. However, in Nara, deers are protected by law in the nara local government. I dont remember very well, but because deers are pet of one of budda,


Deers can be stay freely. And some sellers who provide food for deers  are  around Todaiji (the largest daibutu in japan). Deers already know that tourists give foods to deers. So, deers come to tourists for getting foods, even if a tourist do not have any foods. And if deers detect that the tourist do not have any foods then deers stopping to come ^^;;; they know very well
Some people who has kids were worried to bring your kinds to around deers. Because deers have strong horns for fighting. However, ba…

Photo quality of cameras : Mobile phone vs Digital camera

I have a plan to go trip for bit long period. And, we are considering to take photo and make trip blogs and vlogs.

In such condition, we are considering how many cameras do we need more. Actually, to add more is not realistic ^^; So, we reconsider how our cameras we will be able to use.

Today, I compare my digital camera which I use when I go to cycling (this mean that I don't feel so sad even if it is broken) and mobile phone's camera quality.
I wrote about sea zoo last time. We took many photos and videos using 2 digital cameras and two mobile phones. So, I use there photos, now.

1st, I add photos which is take to use mobile phone..
This shot is not so bad. This is enough usable on my blog. 
But, this is not clear..... there are large glass and large volume of water between us. We can know what is that. but it is not enough clear...
Source of light is from opposite side. I think this shot is much better than digital camera. Because a photo which is take digital camera is tak…
