SBM Trial Review

SBM surprised me even though I knew what was involved way before the actual meeting.

Mika was kind and generous with her knowledge and practice. She was attentive and had a lot of patience to address my frequent questions and enquiries.

She then conducted a non intruding examination. It was then her part to ask questions about injuries, routine and topics as such.

Her analysis was very hopeful. She explained that SBM views the body as a whole and tries to address it as such. She explained to me where she suspects or witness an abnormality in my body and this led us right to the main event of my meeting with Mika: SBM exercise.


I practice while lying on my back and the exercise and everything seems very straightforward and simple.

I will admit this - despite being fit and that I exercise regularly, SBM exercise was more challenging that I expected. It addressed parts of my body I have not addressed well.


When I was done with the workout, I tried to understand what I just went through.

It felt to me like I was in the gym or walking in nature for a day.

Very strong physical sensations from my body despite the fact that I know I was lying down in my back for about an hour.

This result confused me and Mika was again there for the rescue. She said that this is a most encouraging outcome. Certain muscles obviously need training and some flexibility in certain parts may be lacking, but those are addressed with the SMB exercise I just did and that is why I feel like that.


She then gave me my "before" pictures so I will be able to compare the results in the future.

A hip replacement

A hip replacement is a common type of surgery where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one in UK too.

 It might be necessary for you to have a hip replacement if one of your hip joints becomes damaged. 


SBM Instructor Yasuko had deformed left hip joint After She started SBM she improved her ability to move around and relieved pain. She is no longer suffering from hip joint pain now. She cured osteoarthritis of the hip herself without hip replacement. There is a reason to be deformed. 


The SBM exercise will gradually correct the position of pelvis, leading to correction of balance disorders and muscle imbalances.

A Happy New Year 2016!


A Happy New Year 2016!


I wish you all the best 2016!





I made a little Osechi ryori for New Year. Osechi Ryori are traditional Japanese new year foods.
Originally, during the first three days of the New Year, it was a taboo to use a hearth and cook meals, except when cooking ozoni.  Osechi was made by the close of the previous year, as women did not cook in the New Year.

About Self Body Make


Self Body Make (SBM) is a phrase invented by Yuriko, a fashion model and the founder of LILY & GOLD TOKYO, school for Self Body Make.

The name speaks for itself- SBM literally means ‘making your own body.’ It is a set of simple, self-curing exercises for your back and neck by using a special SBM pillow. 

The exercise will gradually correct the position of pelvis, leading to correction of balance disorders and muscle imbalances.     

The beauty of SBM is not only acquiring the art of self-dependence and learning the joy of this exercise, but also the transformation from within and outside of one’s body.    

The theory of SBM is profound. The more you exercise, the more you will discover. No matter what your age is, you can evolve your body and mind through SBM.

I feel music knows no borders !

I had never played a string instrument before, actually my music, on the contrary I had a poor record in my music study when I was student.
I still could not read a music note and I just follow a code of Ukulele.

However,I always look up to someone who can play an instruments because I feel music knows no borders when I am away on a journey. So I wanted to learn some instrument somewhere in my mind.

I did not remember but I accidentally came across a popular video of
Its cool! This is a second reason I would like to play Uke and 




Since I started to practice I was not good student. I decided to aim to join the December 5 Music picnic 2015 Ensemble concert which my tutor organized. I did not feel I would be ready to attend early of October. But it worked out last night! We played at local church.



All’s well that ends well

Making Japanese fermented foods!


  • Making Japanese fermented foods  is my favorite hobby.

Malt rice  (Kome-koji)


Koji  (there is a variety of Aspergillus) is called the national mold of Japan. (国菌)

Koji is food necessary for Japanese fermented foods.







Amazake (甘酒)


A sweet, non-alcoholic drink made from kome koji, rice and water.  
There are several recipe for amazake that have been used for hundreds of years.
Amazake could be use as sweet,drink,sweetness instead of sugar and brew.
I often use Amazake to brew some fish, meat and vegetable.
