Ben Greenfield in Tokyo #3

I know all Japanese people are jealous of us right now. Getting dressed in Kimono, watching Sumo from a box seats and having Chanko nabe (Sumo wrestler’s stew) for dinner are the highest status as Japanese. These incredible experiences never happened without support from Takanohana stable. Gift box was also amazing! Thanks for this opportunity.

Ben Greenfield in Tokyo #2

I am spending days with Ben Greenfield in my hometown Tokyo Japan. Since he had a private speaking event yesterday, I visited my old neighbor, Musashikoyama, Shinagawa, Tokyo where I had been living there until 7th grade. My elementray friends came to see me and I met most of them for the first time in two decades!! It made me so nostargic and reminded me of childhood. and…Guess what!? My random visit because of Ben was a sheer chance to come back to the september festival in my old hometown. It had been 20 years since I participated in last time. What a huge surprise! Sunday was the day for me!

Ben Greenfield in Tokyo #1

Guess who I was with in Tokyo Japan? I spent a week with Ben Greenfield, who is a New York Times Bestselling author, speaker and coach. You can find out who he is on his website and it would be much easier because I cannot explain about everything of his profile. Anyway though, it was my honor to spend time with him because I am a huge fan of him and his podcast. He is definately one of top influencers in fitness, health and wellness industories.

Rio 14 -Hot and Cold-

Does spring season make us a little bit weird? My little sparrow is all cold and hot. She attacks me with beak, but sits on my shoulder and gets relaxed there. Repeat million times. Does she like or hate me? I think spring makes her different. Sorry... no boy is allowed in my place. Rio chan can't find her mate. Too bad… Wish I have male bird for her.

Rio 13 -Recovery Day-

Rio is in deep sleep. She loves to stay on my shoulder or thigh when I do PC work.  She is sleeping hard! Wish I can sleep like her for my full recovery. On Sunday, usually my body is beat up. Today was an active recovery day. I did kettlebell arm-bar and Turkish get-up in the morning. Work on the desk a little bit and then off to acupuncture and hot tub therapy.

Rio 10 -Reading with Rio-

Read a book with my little one. Can Rio read letters? I hope she understands human words or whatever I say. She is so “Kawaii”(meaning “cute“ in Japanese). Books are one of the most popular things in the world today. No matter what happens in politics, the economy, or even in life… books are always going to be available and readily accessible through local stores and even online. I was reading a book recieved from someone I serve. I feel my pleasure in this moment with Rio. Really wish Rio can read this together.

Rio 9 -Nail Salon by Tateki-

Rio doesn't need a plate for shower or bath anymore. She now sneaks in my hands where she can find the tap water running from the faucet. This is a problem…Why? because she doesn't want to come back in the bird cage even though she is thirsty. Now she jumps in my hands to take a shower and drinks water. I remeber she used to be afraid of the whole kitchen sink, but now she has no problem with it and aim for food and shower.
