My dear Yamachan!
He prepares dough before every event.
Kneading dough thoroughly is a strenuous job.
His efforts have made Pizza of Yugaku-tei
the talk of the town.

Sadakun's attention to fine points and technique are
essential to a pizza event.

That night Danish mozzarella cheese was used for female participants.

They tried mozzarella itself.

Both tomato sauce and miso sauce are sooooooo tasty.
I may be boasting myself,
but Yygakutei's pizza is the best.

Toss the dough so that you can get crispy pizza.

Nan was also baked.
Dip it in curry sauce.

Another specialty is dessert pizza with
sliced bananas, canned oranges, chocolate
and blueberry jam on it.
Of course, girls' favorite.

At the open space, a diva Mai sang fascinatingly.
Everyone there was slightly intoxicated with pizzas,
wine and her voice.



Thank you very much for your kind cooperation.
All of the staff for Yugakutei are
going to leave at the end of March.
The new staff will take over Yugakutei's pizza event.


With Gratitude,

Yamada, Mitamura, Okumura, Murata.

The fun is yet to come.

It Don't Mean a Thing (If it Ain't Got That Swing)

Yes, it does.
Last night's concert means a thing.

A clarinet always reminds me of Benny Goodman.
I was mesmerized by Sing,Sing, Sing played by Benny Goodman Orchestra when I was a teenager.

Mami's performance was different.
The tones of her clarinet were so gentle and comfortable that the whole audience felt really good.

Eron was beating out percussion rhythmically and strongly.
The sounds of his intrument sounded throughout the rooms.
so cool.

successfully captivated the audience at the concert.

Living Creatures on the paper

An Unprecedented Exhibition March 2nd through 4th

Ms.Matsuki Satoyo started her career as an oil painting artist.
Three years ago she got involved in her new artistic challenge.

She selected washi, Japanese traditional paper instead of a normal canvas.
She cut a wide variety of animals by a paper cutter and then pasted each
of them on the washi. It's a really really elaborate work.

The animals on the paper are very vivid, cute, and dynamic.
The color selection is exquisite.

I can imagine that each work has her own idea, story and message.
However her generousity allows the visitors to feel her works
from their point of view.

Look up at the ceiling. This canopy-like work is made of a polyester organdy.
She burned a ten meter long cloth with an iron.
You can see holes of different sizes and shapes.
The holes are not just holes.
When you see the holes carefully, you'll find some kinds of animals,such as cats and birds.
The visitors are fascinated most by this work.

Cotton towels featuring a pattern of different sizes of frog are gaining reputaition and still on sale.

There are two types; one is printed in a simple color of some kinds and the other is printed in four colors.
