[movie] Tekkon-Kinkreet

After hatsumode, we watched an animation movie "Tekkon-Kinkreet".
"Tekkon-Kinkreet" was one of the my favorite Manga written by Taiyo Matsumoto. His picture is unique and feel nostalgic and the story line is good.

I surprised the movie was directed by Michael Arias ... and the screenplay was Anthony Weintraub ... both of non-Japanese. But they succeeded to represent Taiyo world(old and not clean Japanese town) well. I would like to appreciate their interest in the Japanese culture and their great works.

Here is the information site of Tekkon-Kinkreet in English.

[culture] Happy new year!

Yesterday, we went to Musashino-Hachimangu which is a shrine at Kichijouji, Tokyo for Hatsumode.

We chose a small shrine because we don't prefer to line up in front of the shrine. But unfortunately, there were a lot of people and we needed to wait for about 30 minutes until to reach to the alter.
