After looking at the chart, I did not tell him the analysis as I did not want to spolit his mood. When I met him a couple of days later, I told him that I would write the answer and wait for him to come from the trip to tell me the outcome.
Well, Mr A, since u r now in Taiwan. I will blog here and state the answer here, the outcome will be not an enjoyable trip. Nevertheless, hope that the sky in Taiwan is clear now.

Really enjoyed myself watch competitors dance, especially when those young kids were dancing, it was beautiful!!! I have to admit that I did not know anything about social dancing but by looking at dancers face expression, I could feel that they (dancer) were delivering some form of messages across. What I like about the dancers; were their ability of changing their face expression in every single move .
Now, I am wondering whether I am starting to fall in love with this new discovery - social dancing.
Our future dancers are waiting for the music to play.
In fact, salt is commonly used in fengshui cure. Maybe in Japan, the use of salt has the same meaning as our fengshui cure?

The red box is おみくじ pronounce as O-mi-Ku-ji in Japanese, meaning fortune. The red box contains a lot of small packets which have fortune written inside, in other words is actually a form of divination. Usually meant for people who want to know an asnwer from god or interested to know what is lie ahead of them.
This is my first time to come across this red box. Before you draw the lot, you need to insert 200 Yen (S$3) into the coin slot. There are few type of lot choices that you can choose from, you can even draw the lot based on your blood group, interesting isn't it?

In my heart, I knew that was a form of blessing. A friend who had been to that temple told me that the size of the hole in the pillar was exactly the same size as Big Buddha Statue nose! And I was told that people who went under this hole would be blessed from Big Buddha.
Guess I would have to do it next time when I visit Nara again.

I attempted to find the answer for this rope thing but could not get an answer. My guess is either this will bring good luck to the household, if not this is used to prevent any bad energy from entering the house.

Just a few couple of weeks ago, I have been receiving information about a new project was going to launch soon and special arrangement like VVIP preview would be held on a certain date. Just like many new home seekers, I was curious to visit this showflat, but before I could do so, the marketing agent announced that VVIP preview was postponed to a week later.
So being curious, I checked the initial scheduled date in the Tong Sheng. It shows that day happened to be a broken day, so I asked myself this, "Was that the reason that led the developer to change their VVIP preview date?"

After shopping at Tsujiki market, we went to one of the restaurants to have our lunch. My lunch was a 3Colourful Don (See photo) which costs 1,800 Yen (S$27), simply love my lunch.
After our lunch, we headed back to our hotel to collect our luggages for our flight to head back home. Really enjoyed myself in this trip, especially I went there with 2 friends from Singapore and to meet my Japanese friend again. Guess, I will be back to Japan soon.

Did you know that in Shibuya JR Station, there is a famous meeting place? The famous meeting place in Shibuya is Bronze Dog Statue, alot of people would arrange to meet near to this Statue.
This Second Statue was erected in August 1948, the first statue was erected in April 1934. So you may wonder why would Japanese want to erect this Dog Statue? Well, there is a touching (real) story behind this Dog Statue. The Statue is a rememberance of Hachikō ハチ公 , an Akita Dog for his loyalty to his owner and even after his owner's death.
When his owner was still alive, every evening the dog Hachikō ハチ公 would wait for his return at Shibuya Station. But one day his owner died at his workplace and failed to return to Shibuya station , Hachikō ハチ公 did not know that his owner had died, continued to wait for his owner to return. Hachikō ハチ公 died on 8 March 1935, after he had waited for almost 10 years for his owner to return!
Every year on 8 April, there will be a ceremony to mark Hachikō ハチ公 loyalty. Do pay this faithful dog a visit if you happen to visit Shibuya. While we were doing our shopping at Shibuya, saw two ladies in cosplay costumes walking in Shibuya street.

Everytimes, when I am in Tokyo, I would pay a visit to Kaminari-mon (Gate) temple. Tokyo weather has turned wet, it was raining when I visited the temple. Usually June is a wet (raining) season in Tokyo, even though during my stay there it was still not yet June.
After our lunch at Asakusa, my friends and I went to Harajuku.
The latest trend in Japan cosplay. To wear a white cloth across the nose.

Anyway, my appointment with my Japanese friend was at 11am, at Hana-Koganei station. The journey from Shinjuku subway train to Hana-koganei station was about 25min.
Finally, reached the station.
Waiting for my friend to pick me up, to bring me to her new house.
Make a guess, what is this? Answer is right at the bottom of this posting.
Providing my fengshui consultation service in Japan.

After the phone call, we arranged to meet at 7.00pm hotel lobby. There was no JR station near Tokyo Tower, the nearest station was Hammamatsucho, and it took us approximately 15min to walk to the Tower.
Finally, reached Tokyo Tower, this is my first time walking towards Tokyo Tower in this direction.
After Tokyo Tower, we walked to Hard Rock Cafe at Roppongi. The first time I visit Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo was 1998. No change to the Hard Rock Cafe, is still the same.

The journey from Ishikawacho Station to Kamakura Station was about 25min or so, but to get to Kamakura Station, I had to change train at Ofuna station. Once I reached Kamakura Station, I hopped into a bus to bring me to Hokoku-ji Temple, which was a ten min bus ride which costs 190 Yen per person. And I was the only foreigner in the bus!
Reached my destination, Hokoku-ji Temple.
If you pay 500 Yen, you will get to enjoy the green tea and at the same time enjoy the beauty of bamboo trees.
The notice board of Hokoku-ji Temple.
Here we are, the bamboo forget inside Hokoku-ji Temple, it costs 200 Yen per person to get into this forest. Think 200 Yen to see such a beautiful bamboo forest was really worth it.
My next stop after Hokoku-ji Temple was Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. Before I could get to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, I took the bus back to my starting point. Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine is just a stone's throw from Kamakura Station.
Now is time for me to scratch my head again, how to find my way back to Tokyo - Shinjuku? For your information, some of the local have to rely on telecommunication devices (mobile phone service) to find the right train to take them to their destination. Haha... or maybe I was lucky that I could find my way back?
