Art of Fire - Survival rice cooking

Art of Fire! - It isn't the art you think of here, but the one you'd need to survive when your life line is cut.

What if earthquake hit you and you have only cans of beer, water, rice and milk pack from the garbege? Yes, you can use this method. Click "Secret of Saba-meshi" and the video.


For the real ART of Fire, you can refer this site. From ceramic exhibition
held at Meguro Museum of Art, Kumin Gallery, 86 works were
exhibited which were made by amatuers except the last four pieces
on the second page. I personally liked the following pieces:

Naoto Tabata, Ishikawa Pref.

Motohiro Nagano, Saga Pref. Reiko Hashimoto, Tokyo Sanae Date, Shiga Pref.

Invited artists were; Tsubusa Kato, Katsumi Ueno and Junji Nomura,
showed the following works.

"Standing Animal" Tsubusa Kato

"Tall Vase with Kin-yo Glaze" Katsumi Ueno

"Yakishime Kingin-sai" Junji Nomura

New hot spot in Kyoto

A new cafe named "Berry Cafe" opened along side of the long corridor of the Kyoto Station
on the Shinkansen-side. They have a eat-in space and there is always a long line
of people waiting outside the cafe.

Looking at the show-window is also so much fun although having a piece with a cup
of coffee sounds a lot better!

Inside of the building, there are numerous of his writings, photos and documents
