Osaka Style Sign-board(?)

In Osaka, they apply huge sign boards. Well, basically they moves too! The concept of having a sign board seems to be how it stands out in the crowded street.

In this case of the crab, its limbs moves up and down! This place, a restaurant (but not sign board shop), served obvisouly crabs and some original crab cuisine.

In Osaka, you can find many places like this place, they are extremely appealing what they have. It's very unique to find those in the same city :)

Baseball in a dome

Here is the Tokyo Dome. I've been to Osaka Dome before though, still it was weird to watch baseball game in a such covered studium.

There was a great smash at the game. The hit ball leaped up straightly toward the home-run area, but at the next second, the call hit the dome itself and fell down. That WAS a homerun (slam) !!! But unfortunately the ball fell into a fielder's grab, then, the batter was out.

They used to have a different rule that such hit was counted as a slam. But since then, they have changed the rule and now such a great smash is counted as same as a pop fly. Such a mean rule!!!

Anyway, baseball should be outside under the sun light, after all.

Master of psychology should master fiddle, too!

so, one of my co-worker was playing violin in our lab. and this shot is my first entouchment with a fiddle. Seemed so difficult, but also fun, too :D

I used to play trumpet quite a bit, and this experience was very fun to me :P In the biggining, I worried that I might break the string in a sec, but it worked well, actually :D Well, it doesn't neccesarily mean I could produce hermonic nice sound thou.

I discussed about the relationship between classical music and thought before. That was, something like... while listening to classical music, I was full of many innovational thoughts, ideas. So now, I wonder if not only listening to them, but we PLAY music, can we facilitate the brain activity? If it is, does it facilitate more? or rather intervene it?

Well, of course as for me, if I play violin, my neurons shall be undergone managing producing a right code, so there wont be any possibility that I can think about somethingelse, unfortunately...

But what if experts do??? Good question, isnt it?!

In conclusion, I like playing instulements. :D (what a poor conclusion jejeje)
