I thought Spring has come finally, and I feel Summer has come at the same time.
I am afraid that Autumn will arrive next week, too.
Do you know that a white apron is a kind of trend fashion specially for kids in Taisho era of Japan. I love Taisho tast from fashion to furniture. It is so interesting for me to see the fusion of western and eastern cultures. I believe that Art Deco and a little bit of Art Nouveau delivered to Japan in Taisho era. When I was in Japan, I liked to visit " Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum". The museum was housed in an Art Deco building that was previously Prince Asaka's residence.
I heard the story that a first TV came to my grandparents' house when my mom was a child. Their neighbors gathered to my grandparents' house and waited for the first TV show broadcasting. I found myself how I love old staffs and nostalgic scene as I am getting old.
Now I am addicted to watch "Heidi, Girl of the Alps" in 1974, written by Johanna Spyri, directed by Isao Takahata and Hayao Mizayazaki, on youtube. I could say that I was grown up with such a beautiful Japanese animations by Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki.
