Octoberfest @ Hibiya-Park

Hibiya park is one of the largest park in Tokyo. And Hibiya-park has many events.

Last week to today, Hibiya-park had an Octoberfest. Octoberfest at Germany is the largest festival in the world. And an Octoberfest at Hibiya-park is also organized same society of the Octoberfest on Germany. So, we can try many Germany beer and Dishes.

We went to Germany at last year. And we drank Kölsch beer. Yesterday, we could fined a beer shop from Köln. So, we could try it again.

The dish fried potato and fired cheese. Usually, we take fried potato with salte and black peppers. However, the dish had orenge jam. It made our surprising. However, the combination of them is also quite nice. This thing is similar to when we sow a dish of meet balls at IKEA.

Tokyowalking : Castle Park @ Tokyo

Kokyo (castle in tokyo) is one of the largest park in tokyo. Kokyo meaning is the house for royal familly. Now, half parts of the kokyo is still house for royal family.

I try several rosemaries. However, most os them are damaged due to both of temperature and few sunshine.

We found a new farm kit which we can grow beefsteak plant in a room as following.  Actually, we like room plant kits which we saw in north Europe.  That was good idea. However, we can not find such kit in Japan.

I'm not sure exact price but I think this kit and soil was less than 1000 JPY.

Package is also document of this kit. Maybe you don't need to understand in japanese. There pictures are enoug…
