Weekly revue: 2017 week #8 (February 18 to 24)
Food: - Gyoza at Rengetsu, Nogizaka. Owner-chef Shinagawa Yuji was the champion of the 7th World Championship of Chinese Cuisine held in Singapore in 2012!

Music event: - I went to Comoesta Yaegashi's regular event "wamono Meeting", usually featuring himself, DJ Fukutake and others, but this time Comoesta invited only girl DJs to fill the bill. This included Nosa Reina and Sumire (Twee Grrrls Club), and the special guest was Nomiya Maki! With the help of DJ Comoesta, she sang karaoke-style to many of her own songs, and of course some Pizzicato Five classics! This was a wonderful time dancing to those loved songs in the cozy venue that is Kissa SMiLE in Shibuya. I even had the chance to get autographed Maki's new 7" set! :D
Nomiya Maki set list: Un homme et une femme (Japanese ver.) / Oh! Honey (Scooters cover) / Chanson des jumelles (Japanese ver.) / La douce vie (Towa Tei) (Live ver.) / Blue Light Yokohama (English ver.) / Fortune Cookie / Maki no Rekishi / Twiggy Twiggy (1981 original) / Shibuya de 5ji / Airplane / If I Were A Groupie w/ MATSUO Remi (Glim Spanky)
Exhibitions: - "Digital Choc 2017" à l'Institut Français du Japon. There's a great new installation by UJINO in the entrance until March 19! Check out this short video I posted. The installation can only be enjoyed in full by going there and seeing it in action. There are also headphones to hear music being created from it. I love Ujino! :)
There were also other fun installations, including one of a robot that can draw your portrait... if you can sit still for 30 minutes. :)
- Dropped by the "Chiyoda Cat Festival 2017" at Chiyoda city ward. There were many stalls selling or promoting various things for cat owners or cat lovers. Notably there was an opportunity to wear the "real cat heads" made by Sato Housetu and his Japan Felt Art School. I didn't wear the real cat head this time (though I have before), but many of their other felt cat creations were also on display.
