Business trip to Osaka

In the morning, I bought a news paper to know about the midnight earthquake in the north-east area.  It was a big one, but I did not feel anything in Kyoto.  I took the paper with me to the restaurant and had buffet while reading it.

I stayed in my room working till 11 AM, a check-out time.  Then I moved to the hotel lounge.

There was a small, pretty garden by the lounge.

The hotel was old, but it had some classical taste.

I walked out the hotel. It was slightly raining.  I was surprised to see that only one warm night made the cherry blossoms in bloom.

From the subway station near the hotel, I took a train.  I changed trains four times, and at the fifth change, I took a monorail.

I finally arrived in Kadoma city and visited Panasonic to talk about my project.  Both Shimadzu and Panasonic will be joining the project if it is accepted by the government.  I will write down the application next week.

After the meeting, I headed home.  I changed trains three times and took a bullet train at Shin Osaka station.  In Shizuoka, I changed trains again.  It was such a busy trip today.

As the final train approached Kofu, I apparently started to feel pollen floating around, which I forgot in Kyoto and Osaka.

Katya picked me up at Kofu station.  Maya-san was in the car, kissing me for welcoming me back.

Katya said her eyes itched.  My skin started to be itchy, too. I noticed how bad the pollen is in Kofu.

    It’s interesting that I never felt anything in Tokyo, but the hayfever seems to be a big problem here. I do get bad hayfever back home come spring… For some reason, I always felt that people take 2-3 years in an area to get hayfever symptoms from the local flora… that’s from observing people moving to Adelaide, but then again, that’s most probably my imagination.

    Yes, Ben, you are right, hayfever is an allergy. It takes time for antibodies to be created inside a body.
    When I, as well as Katya, came to Kofu, we felt nothing, either.
    Katya has been really suffering this year, but it seems it is ending now.
