Aug. 27 was the 12th anniversary since my dog passed away. So I performed and shot this tune which I wrote on his 6th anniversary. This dog loved my piano and he gave me all the inspirations and courage to pursue music. He passed away the right next day of my concert in Tokyo. Everyone said "Oh, it's because your concert was over". Please meet him on the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUPjmiOWZjE This tune is included in my first album "Elegy In Violet" coming out on September 20th. But...

My new album "Elegy In Violet" is finally coming out on September 20th! Can't wait!! Here is a sample track for you, "Please Stay". Originally it was sung by a Japanese vocaloid (singing software) Miku Hatsune. Yes it has a Japanese lyrics. If you listen carefully, maybe you could hear her singing "Ikanaide ♪"( "Don't go") in the chorus hahaha!

They are just great as interiors, even if I don't read them. Reading at a cafe in front of Amazon Book Store. "i was music but you had your ears cut off." Maybe good for catching inspirations for my lyrics. A teenage girl next to me was also reading, while the twenty-something boys on our back were arguing about investment out loud...

However cool someone's outfit looks, he or she is not always a cool person. Same is the food. Often a classy muffin has higher calories than a greasy-looking donut. So, home cooking is always a safer option than take-out foods. Here is a one-minute recipe for your (lonely) weekend party at home. (Serving 1!) 1. Put a package (or 1/3-1/2 teaspoon) of Wasabi paste and 1/2 cube of crushed onion soup in 2 OZ sour cream. 2. Stir them very well and serve! This dish works well with any stick/cut...

Are you a little over-weight? Yes?! Well, it's time for you to try microwaveable vegetarian Asian cooking! I know the secret of a Korean’s diet. As one of my former roommates, who was from Korea always complained: "Why Japanese restaurants are serving such small portions?!" Yes, Koreans eat a large amount. Yet, Koreans still stay slim, because of the detoxing effects in their super-hot dishes. Today, I am using Yuzu Hot Sauce. Yuzu is a Japanese flavorful citrus, which accelerates quick...

Today, here is my Minimal Cooking with microwave series 2! Japanese people eat any kind of dishes daily, Western or Asian. Actually, maybe you think Ramen is a Japanese dish. But it's not. Ramen is originally from China, we then transformed it by our innovative soups/toppings! Thus, Japanese food is quite eclectic. Here is a good example of a Japanese recipe, which is similar to Pacific Rim. *** If only you have frozen cooked shrimp in your freezer, you will still have an ideal dinner with high...

The recurring FAQ to me is "Why you Japanese can stay slim without workout?" I tried hard to analyze and the answer is "Non-oil Cooking". Just forget about "Fry" and "Deep Fry". Most of the popular Japanese dishes are either boiled, steamed or roasted without oil. Ramen, Sushi, Teriyaki, whatever. Now you know who is quite good at these kind of cooking. Yes, Microwave! Here is a typical example of my quick microwave cooking. Just like my music, it's simple and yet heart-warming. High in protein...
