(March 6th)

Today is a rainy day here in Kobe. So we have no practice, no game. We did win the game yesterday, with Nishioka getting a big hit, Hayakawa a big homerun, and Shimizu Nao pitching extremely well for 5 innings, along with Itoh, Nakagoh, and Sikorski. We have a game against Hanshin tomorrow.

I spent the day walking around Kobe and thought people might like to see what a department store looks like here. The basements of department stores (Depachika) in Japan are absolutely phenomenal. I went into Daimaru, and you can see the first floor with makeup, shoes, and other things that women might shop for... get them in and keep them there! The basement floor is always the most intriguing because it’s the food floor.

Daimaru’s food court is absolutely phenomenal. Everything is freshly cooked and freshly prepared – everything from sushi to the most fabulous French pastries, desserts, and chocolates. Sandwiches, pork, and beef are sold at deli counters, and there are tea areas and liquor rooms. Everything you can possibly digest is all on one floor, presented beautifully by beautiful Japanese women for the most part, or young gals and men that are hocking the products. The fruits and vegetables are immaculate. It’s just a pleasant place to be.
I often have my lunches in one of these places when I’m in a big city. I like buying different types of food from the food courts on the basement floor of the department store.

I hope you’ll enjoy the photos – there are too many to show on one blog, but maybe during the year, others will pop up every now and then. I think seeing the food presentation from this food-oriented culture and society is one of the great experiences people have when they come to Japan.

    ボビー^^、おつかれさまでした^^。
    デパートの地下街は、世界の食品の宝庫ですね!
    「医食同源」といいますが、食べ物で健康が維持されて、野球でも素晴しいプレーが出来る様になる、原動力ですね、そんなボビーの視点に、敬服しますね^^。
    次戦もがんばってくださいね!

    (Bobby^^,otsukare sama deshita^^.

    Departments basement have so many food from all around the world!
    There’s a saying “Isyoku Dougen” (means recovering from sickness and eating well both serve the same purpose in our lives - to live and stay healthy) in Japan, and having great nutritious food leads to a great baseball play! Food is the source of all energy. Your point of view always inspires me ^^.
    Good luck on the next game!)
