Mother Farm – Tagura Futtsu Chiba Pref

Just the day after our arrival from The Netherlands our friends from Cafemiffy picked up from Park Hotel (our favourite hotel, where we spent some of our jet lag playing with Tometaro).

Destination an Onsen in Chiba prefecture, about one hour and a half from Tokyo. I will share that with you in an upcoming post because today I remembered about the nice farm we visited close to our Ryokan and about how many friends we met there.

The name of the Farm is “Mother Farm” and it was founded in 1962 by a man called Hisakichi Maeda. If you visit their website (there’s an English version) you will discover more about this business man that is behind Tokyo’s tower and newspapers.

But let’s concentrate in animals and let me show you a little bit of the fun you can have there (but during winter time it’s very, very cold)

 A big Ox
 Miffa tried to milk a cow, but finally only Father Bunny did it
 A very, very nice long horn ox, scary,
but very nice, you can actually feed hi
m
 This is me with some cows in one of
The Farm’s restaurants – excellent fresh milk

 Baikin-Man decided to tease this poor cow that

 is at the entrance (he didn’t realize it wasn’t a real one)

And of course i made a lot of friends there

The best breakfast in my life.

When we visited Tsukiji fish market for the first time we wanted to have breakfast there, but long ques at the small restaurants and our poor knowledge of the Japanese language removed that idea from our mind.

But we’re so lucky as to have met our friends from Cafemiffy who took us for breakfast this Christmas. They took me and Father bunny to a very special restaurant in a rainy and misty day (much better than a sunny day for this experience).

A small restaurant, only a bar, and behind it two sushi master using their knifes and the best fish you can imagine and have.

The different flavours, the different textures, the atmosphere, the perfect rice, a nice Japanese tea, the colors… 

If you have the opportunity to go there you’ll be spoiled forever.

In the past (check here) I visited the world´s biggest fish market – Tsukiji- and we managed to enter the red tunna fish auction where only the best tunna is exposed and inspected to professional buyers.

You have to got early and you must be there about 4 am if you want to enter the auction, besides now you have to register in advance or may be the will completely bann visitor from the auction.

So we were lucky on that rainy spring morning when we manage to visit the auction, but if you’re lazy you must paya a visit to the market too, great small restaurants, great fish, and above all – a lively atmosphere- that will surprise you a lot!

 Daikon Horseradish and Japanese “sweet potatoes”
 wasabi “Wasabia japonica”
 More Wasabi “premium one”
 Blacksmith finishing a “small” knife
 Some tunna traders who finished stocks
The market is closed during New Year’s eve, this was the last day

It’s not easy no spot a Lamborghini Aventador, and a new one, still without definitive car plates is a rare discover.

Of course if you are in tokyo, Ginza is the right place to such discoverings!

But we don’t like the color…

We visited Anpanman museum in Yokohama, it was a very rainy day and Yokohama is not so close to Tokyo as you will expect. But we had a great time!!!

Now some wikipedia about him that can be found here

Anpanman (アンパンマン?) is a Japanese picture book series written by Takashi Yanase since 1973. It was   inspired by Yanase’s struggles to survive as a soldier in World War II. Many times, he became faced with the prospect of starvation, which made him dream about eating anpan (a bean-jam filled pastry).

Some time ago we discovered Park Hotel Tokyo. It was our second visit to Father Bunny’s beloved Tokyo city. 

Location is excellent, service is outstanding, views are some of the best in Tokyo, but above all, people is nice and friendly, they make your stay better than you dreamed about it!

And last,  they gave us Tometaro Jr. as a present. I promised the front desk attendant who gave it to me that i will take him to nice places, in order to make Tometaro Jr. an International Hotel Manager Consultant.

But we promised Tometaro that we will be back in Shiodome to visit Tometaro Sr, and here we are.
