Place of Delicious Curry & Coffee --- "Horiike"

I was looking for the place for lunch along the Kawaramachi Street and found this curry restaurant.

Among many items in the menu, I ordered the curry with the topping of deep fried vegetable (eggplant, broccoli, potato, pumpkin and cherry tomato) and the cream croquette (1,110 yen).

It was very, very delicious just as the signboard says, and I'm sure I'll become a repeater to this restaurant.

Calendar of New Zealand

I got the calendar as a gift from a family of New Zealand. What a cool scenery! I expecially like the June, July and August photos of winter snow.

In the meantime, we are expecting snow again this week in Kyoto.

Room Service at Granvia Hotel Kyoto

My favorit aunt came to Kyoto in the New Year and stayed at the 5-star hotel "Granvia Kyoto" for a few days. She was too tired to go out for dinner the first night so we ordered room service.

We ordered beer and her favorit smoked salmon and sashimi, to toast a New Year.

Beautiful "Shokado" style bento box and Sushi were served with red miso soup. They were all tasty, but room service is always so expensive!!

Happy New Year!

We've had snowfalls since New Year's Eve and it's about 10cm thick today. This kind of snowfalls is rare in Kyoto. I don't like going out when it's just cold but don't mind at all to go outside when there is snow. Kyoto in the snow is also very beautiful.

Wishing you the best in 2011!!!
