OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last month we had a trip to Kobe, Hyogo.
Kobe is one of representative port town of Japan, and have so nice atmosphere at stores and streets.

One of the Kobe styles store is mature.
They started to run as an original selected hat store almost ten years ago, and now they produce their original design hats “mature ha”.

Their outstanding work is the BOXED HAT that it is possible to put the straw hat in the paper box.
Theses hat is coming on pipperoo.jp soon !!

One of the most interesting feature in Kobe is that the shops and galleries still use the pleasant old building by renovating, so the building and street have their unique atmosphere.

Trip to Paris

Tour Eiffel

A while back I’ve been to Paris, and hung out there while between meeting and meeting…

At the end of June, arrived at Charles de Gaulle International Airport.
It looks like a neo-futuristic establishment, as there are lots of escalators. in the airport.
