The exhibition of Utagawa Kuniyoshi

We went to the exhibition of Ukiyo-e of Utagawa Kuniyoshi. (map)
Utagawa Kuniyoshi is not so popular compared with Ando Hiroshige, Hokusai, Syaraku but some of his painting is popular (I know some of his unique painting) so this exhibition seemed to be intersting to me.

This exhibition is held at Osaka city museum at tennouji and the erea around tennouji-station is recently reconstructed rapidly, so we planed to walk around this erea and ate lunch and afterthat went to the exhibition.
We first went to the shop "Abeno and" and had lunch

inside this building

we then passed through tennouji park to osaka city museum because this museum is located in this park. We can see the tuutenkaku tower over there.

this is osaka city museum
Afterthat, we went back to the shopping erea and went to the newly-opened shopping center Q's mall. This day, many people were coming there.

A trip to Ise-shima

At 1-2 march, we went to ise-shima for vacation trip (map) , so today we felt a little tired and spending relax time.(my wife&my son is sleeping now and I spent doing computer with linux and writing like this. )

Ise-shima is very good for trip. It is about 200 km from Osaka, so it took about 4 hour to go there by car using highway.
We often used nemu no sato hotel because we can use company's coupon at this hotel and furthermore, atmosphere is very good because this hotel and cottage is inside forest and we can spent time by walking, tennis, riding bicycle, fishing, etc, so we sometimes used this hotel (this is year 2005 trip article).

This time, we can stay there by 9000 yen(about 90 $) with me, wife,son including breakfast using coupon (we have a given number of coupon per year so this time we use 8 coupon so we can use remaining 16 coupon this fiscal year).

this is fresh miekatu (fish shop) located at ise-city
and we bought luncheon with raw tuna we had lunch at nakamu…
