I WANT TO SEEā¦
“Fujio Akatsuka exhibition”, at Matsuya Ginza (until September 7)
No more explanation, just feel it. Afterwards, head to an izakaya and just drink!
“Itās back! Asakusa Tattoo Museum Exhibition”, at Asakusa Tribal Village (October)
Itāll show the history of Asakusa Horicho I. A long time ago I went into the Asakusa Tattoo Museum showā¦it was so amazing I felt faint!
Keiokaku Yukan Rajihai, September 7 to 9 (Tokyo, Chofu)
Cycle racing. The stadium (Keikokaku) is close to the Tamagawa and so thereās a good wind.
Yarigatake, climbing season (Nagano)
Mountaineering. Before when I climbed it there was a storm and I couldnāt go to the summit, so I want to climb it again.
I WENT TOā¦
Itās a mountain. I climbed it.

J Teidanshou Rakugo-kai Shiki, Dansho Tatekawa, Danshi Tatekawa (special guest)
Danshi Tatekawa is amazing! After that he retired but I celebrate his comeback.
I LIKE GOING TOā¦
Tribal Village Asakusa
The start point for any crawl around Asakusa. I can drink alcohol but I can also get wasted. In October there will be the āAsakusa Tattoo Museumā exhibition.
After drinking I like to head to this sento [bath house] to cool down and relax. Itās great.
I AM READINGā¦
Mogura Zuihitsu (Mole Essay), Choutarou Kawasaki
This is the third time Iāve read his āprivate life novelsā (I-Novel, ē§å°čŖ¬). Iām impressed that there was an old guy as useless as this.
Izureha shinu mi (Ed./trans.: Motoyuki Shibata)
Thereās a story in this book by Rick Bass, Ready, Almost Ready, and itās the best.
I AM USINGā¦
Kinen Paipo (No-Smoking Pipe)
I donāt smoke but if I put in my mouth I relax, and the mintās good.
I AM SURFINGā¦
Kokon Tosai Fuzoku Sanpo (Total Folk Walking)
I donāt know the writer but they really get around. The photos on the reports are nice.
Tengoku wa mizuwari no aji ga suru (Heaven tastes of whiskey and water)
Mr. Kyouichi Tsudzuki every week searches out snack bars (hostess clubs). Wow.
I AM OBSERVINGā¦
There seems to be a real Fujisan climbing book but I think that Yakushima or, for sure, the Kita Alps are better. I donāt mean in a spiritual way, just in terms of nature. Oh, and onsen.
MY HOT TIPS ARE…
Iāve known him for a long timeā¦but heās a strange one.
One is a member of Tetsuwari while the other makes books. An abysmal naturalist partnership!
MY LAST COMMENT ISā¦
They say there are no mountains in Tokyo but at any rate I go walkingā¦
Born 1971 in Tokyo. Leader of performance group Tetsuwari Albatrossket. Recently has also been writing novels and his collection Mazui Supu (Disgusting Soup) will be on sale from the end of September. The next full Tetsuwari performance will be in November at Shimokitazawa Suzunari.
