INSIDE THE UMEZZ KINGDOM

Happy humpday everyone. What's a week on Same Hat without a dump of cheerful, charming pictures of Kazuo Umezu?



It turns out that Uncle Umezz actually has another blog called UMEZZ Kingdom, which is updated infrequently and features snapshots from his daily life. It was a pleasant surprise to see these, which show him apart from the usual media/PR events & signings. Of course, Umezz is still hamming it up most of the time- even on the Kingdom blog.

Enjoy these images from last week:

In addition to the Makoto-Chan house in Kichijoji (western suburbs of Tokyo), Umezu has a "cottage" up in the woods near Nagano.


Unsurprisingly, this house is big and fanciful too.


Umezz cleaning up the patio and window gutters.


Rocking the slide connecting the 2nd floor to the first floor of the cottage.


Requisite Umezu with his goodies photo, which apparently includes a motorcycle up in Nagano?

It's apparent by Umezu's face that within these pictures lies the secret to eternal happiness.

btw I keep mistakenly seeing the last picture as him atop a large toy choo-choo train. I kind of prefer it that way!
