1,000JPY Lunch Buffet at Asian Palm

May 5, 2012

One of my favorite places to go on the weekend is Asian Palm. For only 1,000JPY ($12.00) you can have one of the best all you can eat buffets!


Subway Toei Ooedo Line Ushigome-Kagurazaka Station A1 exit 1-minute walk


Note:If you hate the Oedo line, like I do, then take Tozai Line to Kagurazaka Station take Exi2.

Walk straight out of the exit and cross the street. Stay on the left side of the street. You will go up and down a few hills. Then you will come to a corner with a 7Eleven on your right and a chain ramen noodle shop on  your left. Turn left. Stay on the left side and you will see Asian Palm. If you walk all the way to Kitchen Court Grocery Store, you have walked too far.


Lunch 11:3014:30 (14:00)
Dinner 17:3001:00 (24:00)

How to Decorate the Wind? (Young poet)

April 13, 2012

From a young poet in my class….

How to decorate the wind?

If you want to decorate the wind

you can get lots of leaves,

and then you fly it!

That’s how it works!

Finishing the day off at Yasakuni- Shrine!

Happy Hanami!

Oh, to be six years old again….

April 4, 2012

Just the other day, Kenji said, “Miss Chatman, I want to work with Angie. She’s smart.”  Angie started to preen and glow because Kenji noticed how smart she was.

Do you remember those days? Do you remember when a boy liked you because you were smart?

To be young!

I tell you, when you’re young they like it when you’re smart, but when you’re older they like it when you shut up!

Tokyo Dome Skating Rink – Suidobashi

Walk towards Tokyo Dome. Veer towards the left. It is on the second floor. You will see a giant bowling pin. That’s the building. If you get lost, that’s okay. There’s lot to see and do in that area.

You’re a Rhinocerous!

March 31, 2012
tags: ,

It’s funny how you can walk around town and see the strangest things!

I went to Nagisa Music Festival and I saw this t-shirt on a friend. It means, Rhinoceros! It got me to thinking, isn’t it funny how foreign languages are kind of like accents. You hear someone murmur in French bonjour and you melt. You hear G’day and you think, I’m moving to Australia! You hear howdy and you want to jump into cowboy boots…well, maybe not, but you get my point.

In Japan walking around town and seeing English doesn’t make me want to study. It makes me want to laugh. I mean, there are so many crazy phrases that have been put together for the sake of English, that it should be a crime. So thanks to my FB friends from the middle-east, I now know that you can even see a rhinoceros in Tokyo!

80s Bar in Urayasu-Chiba, Japan

March 30, 2012

Great night of fun at….

Great prices! 1,000 JPY for women all-you-can-drink!

Fun DJ! He played Relight My Fire the original version!

Hanging with the customers! I taught the guy on the right how to do the bump!

Thanks gang! I had a great time in Chiba!

Directions: Take Tozai Line to Urayasu Station. Just walk around the area. There’s not much out there so you will most likely see it.
