Ep 7: "Sara Udon and Spring Rolls of Dogenzaka, Shibuya Ward, Tokyo"


Episode Synopsis. Inogashira Goro (Matsushige Yutaka) who visited a club in Shibuya for business negotiations, is bewildered by the unfamiliar atmosphere of blaring loud music, mirror balls and dancing lights. Meeting with the club manager Saejima (Kubozuka Shunsuke), while surrounded by his staff members, Goro found it difficult to negotiate since they were all speaking in modern slang that only young people could understand. Feeling out of touch with today's youth, a frustrated Goro became hungry afterwards, and began searching for a shop. However, he had a hard time finding a place that piqued his interest, that is, until he found a Chinese restaurant called "Nagasaki Hanten" in a small alley in Dogenzaka. The shop's appearance reminded him of the old Shibuya. Plus, looking at the shop's display of gyoza and spring rolls, Goro felt he had found the right shop. He is ushered in by the proprietress (Kawakami Maiko) to a large red round table with a rotating top, which he shared with three other customers. Then, Goro had a distressing decision to make, which one should he order: Sara Udon or Champon? Crispy noodles or soft noodles?...

Hi and thanks to those who recently subscribed to my blog. To those who don't know, there are a lot of LJ account users who transferred lately here to Dreamwidth, and many of them are Arashi fans. I don't follow back for personal reasons, nor do I always reply to your nice messages but I do read them and appreciate for taking the time to write to me. So as a way of thanks for the follow, here's a translation of VS Arashi (052517)'s intro talk (only). VS isn't really my favorite show, but I like their simple, small chit-chats. They may be silly talks but still, they give us bits and pieces of what goes on in their camaraderie and everyday lives.


Just talking about the weather and vinyl umbrellas...

Ep 6: "Stir Fry Pork with Pickled Takana Mustard Greens and Beef Soup Soba of Takadanobaba, Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo"


Episode Synopsis. When Inogashira Goro (Matsushige Yutaka) got off at Takadanobaba Station, there was a sweet smell from somewhere. It was from a nearby melonpan specialty shop. Even though he was feeling hungry, he decided to go to his appointment first. He thought his meeting with karate instructor, Suzuki (Takahashi Tsutomu) will be over in a jiffy. However, Goro found himself waiting meekly as Suzuki finishes his intense training session with his students... After he left the dojo, it was already past 3 pm. Goro found himself in a predicament: he was starving but shops are closed at this time! Luckily, he spotted an open restaurant, specializing in Myanmar-Shan cuisine, "Nong Inlay". Inside, Goro was bug-eyed with surprise when he read the dishes listed in the "exotic zone" part of the menu. Nevertheless, there were other unknown dishes that caught his interest: fermented tea leaves salad, mouth-watering stir fry dishes, sticky rice dishes, delectable soup, etc. Plus adding various chili seasonings and condiments to his liking livened his food even more...
