I'm a Japanese web designer living in Melbourne Australia.
I write about life in here.





This is first time for me that go to Karaoke in Melbourne.
I went to Karaoke with my friends Donny and Huston.
However Korean karaoke is more popular in here.
I experienced Korean karaoke for the first time in Melbourne!

Of course lyrics are written in Hangul.

Remote controller is also written in Hangul.

The Song list is also written in Hangul.

I caaaaan’t reaaaad!!!
Barely I found a Japanese song list.
(it make Japanese lyrics)

And that was great atmosphere because of illuminations.
That was very showy.

Ryan fare well tour


Today, I arounded Melbourne because Ryan who I met in language school would go back his home!

Firstly we went Hosier Lane which suggested by Ryan.
There are so many graffiti on the walls!
I know Melbourne is famous city about graffiti.
Usually, stencils and graffities are illegal but I think it is allowed to draw a graffiti.
I saw a few young people who were tagging on other day.

There are a lot of graffiti all over the place!

I love this! Cool!!

This restaurant is awesome include the graffiti….(It already opened)
I heard this restaurant is famous in Melbourne.

Then we went St.kilda beach which was still cold.
Nobody was swam in the sea because of early Spring.
However in the Summer, there are too cloudy….

And penguins are living in here!
I watched only one penguin in that time.

Then we went Botanical Gardens on the way of back to the city.
This park is so huge! we couldn’t watch all of here on this day.
This day was so great but Ryan would go back…

First BBQ


Today, I experienced BBQ at first time in language school’s activity.
It was little bit cold by winter.

What amazing we can use BBQ machine for free in a park.

The BBQ machine is operated by electric, I have to push the button at fixed interval.
It is large-minded that allows to use for free!
By the way, BBQ in here is dynamic as I thought!!



Great Great Ocian Road!!!


Today, I went Great ocean road whichi is the most famous site-seeing area in Melbourne.

I had not known this place until came here, but I looked many times in travel agencies in Melbourne.
We can go there by moderate price, and enjoy enormous nature.

The price is usualy about $75, but it is changed by agencies.
This day, I paid only $45 because my friends Ryan booked by Korean agency.
Therefore, tourist guide and other passengers are almost in

Although Great ocean road, but this is not spot.
It means perhaps long long way along the sea.

So, stopping many spot and enjoying there, is today’s pattern.

First of all, first stop is beach!
It was a little cold because of winter, but so big sea was awsome!
It will be more fun in summer.

We found wild koala at next stop!
We saw koala in Japan at times but it was first time to see a wild koala.
Koalas are almost sleeping in a day….

And these colorful birds were jumping toward people who has feeds by terrific speed…
They used to people, and rode on our head….

I took a picture when a bird was riding on Ryan’s back!

Finally, I arrived special-feauture place.
There are sheer cliffs and the waves are coming to there.
I was impressed by big scale like this.

Beyond the road, there is an inlet.
And there is beach in the inlet. So quiet and calm place.
It is said the model of “Porco rosso” that is an animation movie in Japan.

I enjoyed great Australia today!!
Thank you Ryan!!

Crown Casino!


Today is last school day of my classmate “Ryan”.
What’s amazing! He brought Korean rice cakes to the school.
We took the cake in break time.
Rice cake, that is similer to Japanese “Mochi”, is named “Tok”.
Tok is a little sweeter and harder.
Oh Ryan, you will go baaaack.

After the school, we were taken to go to dinner by Yu who is IAE’s agent.
Firstly, we went “Hu Tong Dumpling Bar” that is top of Chiese dumplings shop in Melbourne!
I took a dumpling to my mouth… this is so delicisou…
I have eaten Chinese dumplings in Shanghai, but this is as delicious as that.
This tasty experience is more than made up for I’ve never been good restraunts in here.
However, if you want to go here, you have to reserve over 1 week before.
I am regretting didn’t take a picture…

After that, we wanted more drinks, so we went “Crown Casino” that was listened in many rumores!
Althogh we didn’t bet, the purpose was restrant that is established the casino!
And I got my great favorite food Oyster!!(First picture)
Oysters is popular foods. The reason is I heared Oysters is caught in the sea near here.
However the peaple living here is prefer a grilled oyster.

And we also ate blue mussels boiled in tomato sauce that was veeeery tasty!
Today was also veeery delicious!

Mag nation


“Mag nation” which is along Elithabeth Street sell coffees at the register on ground floor in spite of a book store.
You can read books drinking a coffee on the seat at first level.
Even this point is funny, but also there are so many books about designs.

The shop has 3 stories.
The second level is for design books.
I am attracted by a display of books.
I want to come here at fixed intervals.

Walking in the city, I found a indoors like a shopping arcade!
Gibli or Horry Potter might be like this!
It was seemed to be twinkle.
The shops which is old but livery is an unusual, because I couldn’t watch like this in Japan.

There were so many Matryoshka. lol

Category : Design / Life / Melbourne / Shop




I went to Degraves Street with Ryan who is a my friend in a language school.
There are tables that is supplied by restrans which is besids the street.
You can take foods or drinks at open air.
Of course, you can take seats in these restraunts.

However, these tables are had by each restrants, so you can’t bring other restrant’s dishes.
(It may depends on shops.)

This day was very cold, but having Bagna càuda in open air is awsome!
It suited to wines.
I want to go this place in summer again!

This place is here.
