A~majide again


On my way home from Osaka, I also had time to visit the magic bar "A maji de" again. It is the only magic bar I know of in Osaka that is open on Sundays. I went there on Sunday evening and it was packed. There was a group of high school teachers there that were very funny to talk to. They were interested in Sweden, and they laughed at my t-shirt.

大阪から帰る時にマジックバーえ~マジでにも行けた。大阪の日曜日にやっている店はそこしか知らない。日曜日の夜に行って、かなり混んでいた。高校(?)の先生の団体がいた。面白い人たちだった。スウェーデンの話もしていたし、ティシャツも突っ込んでくれたし。


When I arrived a magic show was just about to begin at the show table, and the teachers were kind enough to squeeze together to make room for me too. Later, two more guests showed up and everyone squeezed together even more so these two could see the show too.

僕が入った時にちょうどショーテーブルでマジックショーが始まる感じだった。混んでいたが皆頑張ってくれて、僕も入るようになった。その後、カップルも入ってきて、皆もっと頑張って、そのカップルもマジックショー見れるようになった。


We got to see the young magician Korogi do quite a lot of funny magic, and then we got to see master Kubo do a full show too. Both of them did a lot of the same magic that I saw last time I was there, but they also did quite a bit of magic that I had not seen before. Korogi did a fun trick where the audience mixed up a small Rubik's cube, and then he took a big Rubik's cube and in 3 seconds made it into the same random pattern as the small cube. Master Kubo did a trick where three coins on the table turned into four coins, and then he took one coin away so it was three coins again. They then turned into four coins again, which was repeated very many times. Very clean.

若いマジシャンのコオロギのマジックも見せて貰ったし、マスター久保のマジックショーも見れたし、面白かった。前に行った時と同じマジックが結構あったが見たことなかったマジックも色々見せて貰った。コオロギさんがお客さんにぐちゅぐちゃして貰った小さなルービックキューブに合わせて、3秒で大きなルービックキューブを同じようにした。全面同じになった。マスター久保がコイン3つを4つにして、コイン1つ取った。テーブルにある3つのコインがまた4つになった。永遠繰り返しても大ジョブなマジックみたいで、何回もやっていた。不思議だった。


After the big group of guests left, several small groups of new guests came, so in the end they did a new full set of magic, so I got to see the two magicians do their shows twice. Lots of fun.

団体とカップルが帰ったら、またお客さん何人も入ったから、結局もう1回ショーが始まった。沢山マジック見れて楽しかった。
