一月搬回台灣，將近半年之後終於有機會再度拜訪喜多川沙龍。中午我們在御茶水附近一家有名的壽司店吃午餐。回想起來，雖然在日本住了三年，這僅是我第二次吃傳統壽司店呢。Finally I have got a chance to visit Salon Kitagawa again after moving to Taiwan in January. Before heading toward our destination, we have lunch in a sushi shop in Ochanomizu. Despite having lived in Japan for three years, it is merely my second time eating in a traditional sushi shop.

看來好好吃的樣子..Wow, looks yummy!
將近半年沒有練習吊縛，發現自己幾乎「武功全廢」了。第一次試綁，喜多川與 Shioda 兩人看一眼便說：「太鬆了吧？」看來我不但手感消失，連眼力也退化了。
在喜多川的指導之下，總算是漸漸找回感覺。趁著機會拍了幾張照片。Six months without a chance to practice suspension in Taiwan, I almost forgot how to do gyakuebi right. Upon glancing my first try, Kitagawa and Shioda immediately say “don’t you think it looks too loose?” The first suspension is not a successful one. Kitagawa san quickly helps me out and points out what may be wrong.

很高興又見到喜多川、Shioda、Runa 等人。希望很快能有機會再見！On the way back, we pass by a supermarket hoping to find some fish liver. Then I find these watermelon in shibari! Well, akane says that it’s just how watermelons are sold in Japan. I think I have got to take a photo of them to show to my Taiwanese friends.
It’s been great meeting Kitagawa, Shioda and Runa. Hope to see them again soon!
