Tokube with Mariya

Katya sent me an e-mail telling that Nishikori was beaten by Andujar in Madrid Open yesterday. In the evening, Katya, Mariya and I went to a Sushi restaurant, “Nigiri no Tokube” in Shikishima. It was rainy. Katya was holding Mariya in her arms in the restaurant. Mariya was mainly playing with a small soy-sauce saucer.    We had many plates of sushi. Mariya had been a very good girl in the restaurant as usual.

Itajiki Gorge, Kofu, Yamanashi, on Sunday

Today is Sunday. In the morning, Katya and I had brunch at Gusto. Then all of us went up the mountain to Itajiki gorge in Kofu, which Katya had happened to find. By the gorge, there was a short hiking course less than a kilometer long. Right after the entrance, Shirokami waterfall welcomed us. Roads were sometimes rocky but mostly pleasant.    At the end of the hiking course, there was Otaki waterfall. The differential level is 30 m; the fall was not huge, but it was worth visiting. The mists made us feel cool. The water from the gorge flows into Arakawa Dam. We came back home. Katya and … Continue reading

Sun Meadows in summer and Busiest Tokube

After breakfast, we went to “Sun Meadows Kiyosato Ski Resort.” In summer, the slope is good for walking. There are two lifts taking us up, too.    After the arrival, we first visited a small lake near by. Sometimes, people learn canoeing on the lake, but today there was nobody. Maya-san took a bath in to cool her down.    We walked along the side way and went up the slope.    Then we walked down and took a lift up again.    Maya-san was with Katya on the lift. She was not afraid of the ride. Views of the city down from the hill and up the mountain.    … Continue reading

Going to Shimosuwa for the trip to Toba tomorrow

The researchers from Shimadzu have finished the work for this week. They left the lab at 4 PM. They will come again after two weeks. Katya picked me up at 7:20 PM by Smart. For dinner, she drove with me to a sushi restaurant, Tokube, which was full of people.    After dinner, Katya and I came back home, packed the baggage, took Maya-san, and left for my parents’ in Shimosuwa. We will stay one day before going to Toba. Maya-san will be left. It is a pity but she will have some fun, too, with my parents.

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

Locked out, Rejected, Sushi

In the morning, I took Smart to take Maya-san out for a walk, then, Katya left home by bike for teaching English. I left the key inside! I found it out when Katya arrived at the class.  I called her, but it was too late.  There was nothing to do except taking Maya-san for a longer walk; so I did.

I went back to the apartment quickly, left Maya-san inside, and returned to the office to have the key back. After I finally arrived in my … Continue reading
