Osaka stopover, French Drop and A Maji De

On my to Sweden to visit my relatives, I had a one night stay in Osaka. I arrived in the evening and took the time to visit the magic bars French Drop and A Majide.

スウェーデンに行く時に大阪経由で行って、大阪に1泊した。夜にマジックバーフレンチドロップもえーまじでも行った。

Me and the French Drop magicians

The guys at French Drop remembered me, even thought I have only been there once before and that was about two years ago. There were three magicians there, Loki, Takemiya, and David Chinsuko. They were very funny to talk to, and they did a lot of magic for me. The funniest was David Chinsuko snorting the chocolate off Pocky-sticks when he had them stuck up his nostrils.

フレンチドロップのマジシャンが僕のことを覚えてくれた。前に1回しか行ったことないし、2年前に行ったのに…マジシャン3人もいた:ロキ・Takemiya・デビッドちんすこう。面白い話もたくさんあったし、いろいろなマジックも見せてもらったし、楽しかった。一番うけたのはデビッドちんすこうさんがポッキーを鼻に入れて、チョコレートだけ吸い込んだ。




The A Majide counter and show table

I also visited the magic bar A Majide, which was very close to my hotel. I have been there several times recently, so they of course remembered me. Last time the master of the place kept talking about how good the sweets from Sapporo are, and how much he would like to eat such Sapporo sweets etc. I got the hint and brought a small pack of the most popular Sapporo gift sweets. As usual when I arrive, they were quite busy and a stage show was about to start. After the show was over, they were not busy at all, so we sat and talked about all kinds of things for a while.

マジックバーえ~まじでにも行った。ホテルのすぐ近く。最近何回も行っているから、勿論覚えられた。この間行った時にマスターがずっと「札幌のお土産美味しいよね」とか「札幌のお土産が食べたいなぁ」と言っていたから今回ちゃんとマルセイバターサンドを持って行った(笑)。相変わらず、僕が入る時にちょうど大きなショーが始まった。ショーの後は割りと暇で、面白い話も結構した。
