Music event: On Friday May 9 (actually at the end of the previous week) was DJ event "Tokyo no koibito", organized by DJ 610, with regular DJs tnb, Ohtake Tetsuya and more. The special guest DJ was Yoshida Tetsuto (who produced Team Syachihoko's latest song "ii kurashi"). That was a fun event with lots of good music and friendly people. However it was the last edition because the venue (Smash'07 in Nakano) is closing at the end of the month.

Exhibition: We happened to pass by Mizuma Art Gallery where was being held a solo exhibition by Tsutsui Shinsuke, of hundreds of small artworks he made to accompany his father's novel "seikon" (= "Stigmata") that was published as a series daily in Asahi Shimbun. Each artwork is done in a unique process that involves dead insects and wax, you can read more about it here. His father is Tsutsui Yasutaka, also author of "Paprika" and "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time". When we went up the stairs to the venue he was smoking outside and kindly opened the door for us! The exhibition goes on until May 31.

Movie: Had the opportunity to see Wes Anderson's new movie "The Grand Budapest Hotel" a bit before it opens in theaters. It's a beautiful and fantastic fast-paced movie, and was a lot of fun! It opens in theaters in Japan on June 6.
