Visiting to Matsuyama

I visited my hometown Matsuyama with my wife Ai last Friday.

It was fantastic day!! :D




Our hometown is same, Matsuyama!




The reason of we decided to visit Matsuyama this time is we heard that our favorite noodle shop(restaurant) decided to close the end of September(in few days).


We both love that noodle, Oden and boss.

So, why not go to Matsuyama to taste last our favorite noodle and meet boss. ;)


We know boss for many years and we know each other personally, so it was important for us to visit there and taste them and say thank you to boss in person.


These are our favorite noodles!!!




And Oden! :)




It was great moment!! :D

We are very happy!!! ;)



I called my friends to get together in Matsuyama, and we had nice practice time together. :)

We'll play together in March in Matsuyama, so it was nice opportunity to practice together! ;)



It was very fun and happy time!! :D




I like this picture very much! ;)




After practice, we had very nice dinner!

We really enjoyd foods and talks. :D




I visited another our favorite restaurant yesterday just before return to Osaka.

There are our favorite Udon noodle and Okonomi-yaki!!! :D





Thank you my friends in Matsuyama!!

We had fantastic time there with you! :D ;)


It's not easy to come to Matsuyama often, but I don't want to miss chances.

I'm very happy to live with fantastic woman as my wife who has same sense of values. :)

Hard work!

I've been occupied with my orchestra works last 12 days.

It was very hard, but I enjoyed my rehearsals and concerts. ;)


We visited Okayama for 2 concerts.

It's nice to visit other cities. ;)




After returned from Okayama, I had rehearsal for opera performance which will be performed next week.

There are many different pieces that we perform, so I need to concentrate well. :)



For next 3 months, there are many concerts and tours, so I take care of myself and keep enjoying my music life!! :D

It's middle of very hard orchestra schedule, but it's good to visit other cities to refreshing. :)

New item

I've been occupied with my orchestra works these days, but I'm enjoying working on Euphonium too! ;)

It makes me refreshed! :D




With the orchestra, I was with Alto Trombone this week.



I had pain on my finger by playing on Alto Trombone long time, but I found good item for avoiding that finally.

It works well! ;)




My orchestra works continue more few days.

I take care of myself and keep work well! :)

Enjoying operas

I just finished our opera performances last weekend, but there was one more (other) opera rehearsal yesterday.

I like to perform operas and ballets, but twice a year is enough for me. ;)


Anyway, I enjoyed my rehearsal. :D




This was my first orchestra rehearsal with my new Trombone!! ;)

I feel very good! :D
