daughter 娘


I met Sugiyama san when I’ve moved to NYC year ago. He has a very nice restaurant “
Sugiyama” where he produces a traditional Japanese Kaiseki style dining experience. I always sit at the counter so I can see his cooking and how he presents food to his customer, carefully arranging each pieces so you can appreciate all flavor and texture of food.

His wife and Sugiyama san both share same hometown in Japan with me so we often talk about our hometown, music, and food. He plays drum (R&R), and his daughter plays piano.

I had an opportunity to listen to
her recital yesterday at the Kaufman Center Merkin Concert Hall.

His daughter looks like her parents but plays very different type of music, still nice to know a family who shares the joy of music.
