  • 小学校卒業式での袴
  • Hakama at graduation ceremony of primary school A couple of days ago, one of my FB friends uploaded photos, taken at the graduatio
    n ceremony of a primary school. Watching the photos, I found around one third of girl graduates wore Hakama, which had been a trad
    itional uniform particularly in girl’s school. But three years ago, I didn’t see girls with Hakama on the graduation day of my
    daughter. I [続きを読む]
  • 風邪をひきました
  • Bad Cold During this week, I have been suffering from violent cough. It comes day and night and let me think if I had a serious r
    espiratory disease or something terrible one. So I took a day off yesterday and went to hospital. It was first time after 10 years
    of visiting the hospital so I was treated as a new patient. What was lucky for me, the doctor in charge was a specialist of respi

  • “Cloud” and Leandro Erlich
  • “Cloud” and Leandro Erlich This is one of the art works of Leandro Erlich who is an Argentinian contemporary artist. The title of the work is “Cloud”. Human being is inclined to draw lines around him/her self and tried to have clear territory. But is it so meaningful on the earth. Who really own sky, land and ocean? As we see the work of Japan shaped cloud, many may find of those territories [続きを読む]
  • バイプレーヤーズ
  • The final episode of “By-Players”. I watched the last episode of TV Tokyo’s drama “By-Players season 2”, which was bro
    adcasted on 7th of March. Ren Osugi, one of the main characters of the drama had suddenly passed away two weeks before the final e
    pisode therefore the drama became his posthumous work. The plot of “By-Players” is basically comedy but with essence of each a
    ctor’s life and [続きを読む]
  • ウォーキングイベントでの失敗
  • Walking Event It was terrible. Yesterday,I went to Tsukuba Station to participate a walking event and found that it had taken place the day before yesterday. The fact made me so disappointed. I felt like I was a very old man who easily forgets important things. So I walked around the city and went back to home.As we all know that it was March 11. The day of mega earthquake and tsunami hit north- [続きを読む]
  • ちょっと和風な Fish & Chips
  • Fish & Chips I found Fish & Chips shop at Roppongi. I used to eat them when I was in Britain and loved it so much. I rushed into
    the shop to order regular size one and it was served several minutes later.But.. Hmm. Maybe it would be bit different from what I
    expected. The food was somehow “Japanese-lized” Fish’n Chips.Anyway, I enjoyed it. にほんブログ村 [続きを読む]
  • 市民の作る雛人形
  • HinaMatsuri March 3rd is the Girl’s Festival in Japan. At the cultural center in my city, huge decoration for the Festival was displayed in one of the main halls. It was so beautiful and wonderful. It was remarkable that all the dolls and ornaments were made by some Hina-doll clubs in the city. They are doll making lovers and every year they donate their works in this occasion. It is nice to se [続きを読む]
  • 昭和後期の田舎の風習
  • Ritual to invite spirit of forefathers. Hideo Haga is the professional photographer who is fascinated by folk customs of old Jap
    an. I saw his works at the exhibition in FUJIFILM SQUARE. He set his theme on traditions which had been maintained in local people
    ’s life. It seems so old but actually the photos were taken during last five decades. It was the age we believed gods in the nat

  • Ukiyoe at Bakumatsu. A couple of days ago, I visited Ukiyoe-Art Museum which displays a group of Ukiyoes which had been made at the last period of Edo-era, “Bakumatsu”.

The ship was enormous, Japanese had never seen before and they approached to Japan island with blank shots which made people panic. The impact and impress [続きを読む]

They says that there are some touching stories behind their accom [続きを読む]
  • "BACK TO THE FUTURE" with my children.
  • “BACK TO THE FUTURE” with my children. Film “BACK TO THE FUTURE” is one of my favorites. I watched it thirty years ago when I was a student. The adventure of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown made me thrilled and the film experience has never lost its luster in my heart. Yesterday, I watched BTTF with my children who are now students just as me, thirty years ago. I felt like they came to visit [続きを読む]

  • 野菜の無人販売
  • Unmanned vegetable stand There is an unmanned vegetable stand in my city, run by a farmer. Fresh vegetables are displayed on the
    coarse stand with price on the board but no shop assistant or security guard around it. So payment is completely up to buyer’s c
    onscience. You can say such a stand is very old fashioned and who would be interested in the vegetables. But I saw few people were

  • 「西郷どん」始まる
  • SEGODON I like actor Ryohei Suzuki. He is cool, handsome and reliable so I had been looking forward to watching “SEGODON”, NHK’s new history drama. On January 7th, I watched the first episode of drama and was wonderful. It described the childhood of Takamori Saigo, which was played by a child actor, not Suzuki. But Ken Watanabe was imposing and majestic. Besides, the child actor played his rol [続きを読む]
