2018/04/28 Koinobori – Carp Streamer

Yesterday my wife said,

“Don’t you set up Koinobori this year?”.

Oh, no! I had completely forgotten it!!

So I set up it for my son this afternoon, I was very busy for many guests today though…

Koinobori, meaning carp streamer” in Japanese, are carp-shaped wind socks traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Children’s Day on May 5th.

We, Japanese set up this Kinobori in honor of children for a good future and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.

2018/04/19 Shirahama Beach and Score of Mozart

I got back my computer after 9 days because I sent it to repair on April 9th.

It was a long time for me without computer …

It was sunny and the blue sky was really beautiful after the low pressure system passed today.

When I walked on the seaside road this afternoon as usual I took some pictures of the nearest beach Shirahama.

By the way I’m a member of chorus group in Shimoda and we will have a performance with young Japanese professional conductor Kazuki Yamada who lives in Germany and a professional orchestra “Yokohama Sinphonietta” on March 16th 2019.

We had already started practicing in last March and it’s a little difficult for us to sing.

But we are really looking forward to the stage in Shimoda!

2018/03/25 A Small Classical Ballet Performance in Shimoda

Today the small classical ballet school had performances in Shimoda.

My wife also participated and danced on this stage.

Though she had been having a trouble on her knee since several months ago, she did it very good than I expected.

In Shimoda all of young students have to join afterschool club activities at junior high school, so most of young dancers have to give up dancing when they graduate primary school.

It can’t be helped, but that’s why it’s really hard to continue dancing and the classical ballet school doesn’t have many members…..

2018/01/03 Shirahama Shrine

My family and I went to the nearest shrine “Shirahama Shrine” on January 3rd after busy days.

Most of Japanese go to shrine at the beginning of new year to pray for good health and happiness.

It calls “Hatsumoude” in Japanese.

This shrine is very famous for its long history more than 2,600 years.

That’s why this place always is crowded with a looooot of visitors in the morning on January 1st.

It has been raining all day long since this morning.

My son went to the school by local bus for the first time today, but it was really fun for him with his primary school friends, he said so.
