This saturday we visited Radek on his end of the world – town called Misaki. Then we all went to Aburatsubo to Mori-san restaurant.
Places like this simply are nowhere else, 30 meters to ocean, phones discharge 3 times faster because of low reception. People are different.
What’s inside – restaurant-gallery, time on the clock is different, date is from yesterday, only seconds are important as metronom, hours are not even visible.
Total improvisation, everyone plays some instrument, a lot of guitars, 2 saxophones, 2 synthetizers and drums, and just like that everyone gathers almost every day and just play.
Our expressions – place just like from other world, reality does not exist here, only phones and a lot of technical stuff bring us down.

As commonly known Japan is very strict about recycling, so here we have tool to remove plastic band from a bottle, caring about surface is also important so table or chair socks can really elongate durability of fllor or tatami:

To next day i am prepared much better, i bought tennis racket and balls.
And there is something very interesting, i was looking for racket for over 2 days and couldn’t find any.
Finally i found professional tennis shop which had over 100 sorts of just wooden tennis rackets, more than 100 of rubber sides to attach to rackets, protective bands, balls etc.
After long time i chose my set and it is Butterfly LEJUMU-FL medium-fast racket, YASAKA XTEND 1.8mm and YASAKA MarkV 1.5mm rubber sides, to this i added balls, protective case and whole set is ready.
Shop service just in few minutes made fully-functional tennis racket using chosen materials, glued everything together and cut to fit.
Until now i didn’t even realize how complicated it is and that such shops even exist, i thought the only company i know (STIGA) does matter but it seems they don’t even know that brand.
