Jingisukan BBQ dinner on Sunday

It is Sunday today. When I woke up, it was raining. I took Maya-san out for a walk in the morning. She was a good girl enough not to hesitate to walk in the rain, which is not very often. After the walk, Katya drove to Jonathan’s. I read a newspaper, while Katya an internet magazine with her iPad.    Drinks in Jonathan’s are better than in Gusto, so we might be going to have Sunday breakfasts in Jonathan’s, although Gusto is in the walking distance from our apartment. Then we went to “Pet Field” to see live rocks to be put in a fish tank. We did not buy … Continue reading

Second day of the summer vacation

In the morning, I took Maya-san to Arakawa River Park. The lawn was faded by the heat. Maya-san walked on grasses. I went to Gusto for breakfast. I read two newspapers. When I turned on TV, Sharapova was with a Japanese comedian, who went to London to interview athletes. The interview was funny. Today’s Sunday, so I spend a lazy life with Maya-san.

Nishizawa Valley, Taizan Hanten, Gusto

Young scientists visited our institute in the morning, and I showed them around. In the afternoon, Katya, Maya-san, and I went to Nishizawa Valley in Yamanashi city. The temperature in Kofu was higher than 30 degree C today, but in the mountain, it lowered to 24 degree.      It was cool and pleasant. Maya-san found something “real” under the ground. She dug, barked, tried to bite it, and sometimes jumped back. It could be a snake. I took Maya-san out from the hole. We arrived at Okubo Waterfall. We then returned. On the way back home, we dropped by “JA (Japan Agriculture Co-operatives) Fruits Yamanashi”, a vegetable and fruit … Continue reading

Sunday on June 10, 2012

On a Sunday Morning, Katya and I went to Gusto for breakfast as ususal.  I read a newspaper and Katya a book. Katya, Maya-san, and I drove to “Doryu Waterfall” in Kiyosato. The green was very fresh in early summer.       The fall is not big, but the water streams are delicately separated as if into thin white strings running down. “Waterfalls breathed out by dragon” is an adequate name. Katya got closer to the falls. The air was very fresh. Maya-san has changed in the nature; she looked more serious, relaxing, and independent. After visiting the falls, we dropped by “Kiyosato no Mori” park, too. We came home. … Continue reading

Gusto, Shosenkyo, and New Mahal on Sunday

In the morning, Katya and I had breakfast at Gusto as usual.    I read a newspaper and Katya a book. In the afternoon, Katya, Maya-san, and I went to Shosenkyo Valley  for a walk.       The green was young and beautiful. Katya and I had dinner at New Mahal.    I asked a Nepali waiter in Japanese to make my curry spicy.  He was mistaken and made my chicken curry much less spicy. Boy, wasn’t I disappointed.  However, since he was not a Japanese, I thought it was partly my fault. The curry was not very good for me, but I ate them all. The waiter was very pleasant. We … Continue reading

Lake Chiyoda, Kofu

Katya and I had breakfast at Gusto.    After breakfast, we drove to Lake Chiyoda with Maya-san. Katya and Maya-san once walked there (in two hours!), but I had not been there. The lake is artificial, created in 1937, well-known to fishermen for a fish called “hera-crucian“.    We walked around the lake and took a path into the forest.    A panoramic view of Kofu was obtained. After a long walk, we went to Pet Field. I bought four shrimp.    We came back home and put the shrimp in the tank. I cooked steaks for dinner. Maya-san is tired; she soon went to sleep.

Kiyosato on a Sunday in May

Katya and I had breakfast at Gusto, a family restaurant. I like to have breakfast at a family restaurant.  Not because of the tastes themselves, but the atmosphere, where I commonly read a newspaper. Katya tends to read a book, too.    After the breakfast, Katya, Maya-san, and I headed for “Utsukushi Mori” in the Kiyosato area. Cherry blossoms were still in bloom. This means that the weather is not warm enough for plants yet. Right after we started walking on a hiking path, we found out that spring is only starting in this place.    We climbed up to the monument of Utsukushi Mori, and walked down.    We … Continue reading

Furoen on Vernal Equinox Day

Today is Vernal Equinox Day, a holiday. In the morning, Katya and I went to Gusto for breakfast.    We went back home, picked Maya-san up, and headed for Furoen as scheduled. We used two Ogino coupons for a free entry.    The Ume blossoms were at their best.    Small shops were there to provide with foods and drinks. We took a cup of amazake drink. We walked up the hill.       It was a pleasant walk except Maya-san who needed some free run. Katya and I took Maya-san to Pet Field for her beauty care. I looked her through the window. She was OK with the lady but did … Continue reading

3.11 in 2012: One year after the dissaster

After having blini for breakfast, Katya and I went to a “YAMADA” electric shop to buy an air purifier for Katya’s pollen allergy. They recommended a Sharp or a Panasonic, and we chose Sharp, which is now being advertised on TV. After coming home, I turned on the TV to watch the national memorial ceremony of the disaster.  Emperor presented himself after his heart surgery. He did a good talk (I am against the Japanese Emperor system, but I think he is a balanced person). At 2:46 PM, we paid one-minute silent prayer to the victims. Although I am an atheist, I quietly thought of them. I think the disaster has changed … Continue reading

Another Sunday

I did not sleep well for two days, so I slept till 9:30 AM. Maya-san and I had a walk, then Katya and I went to Gusto for brunch.    I like eating and reading a newspaper, which I do not feel impolite because fortunately, Katya likes to eat and read a book during breakfast. Then everyone went to Lake Inagako. Only the skin of the lake was frozen.    It was not very cold walking around the lake. Maya-san smelled something under the ground, which made her dig a hole. We need to leave the hole, anyway, and this is only when Maya-san loosing herself growls and barks at … Continue reading
