We checked out the hotel around 11 AM after having breakfast. With all the goods bought in Odaiba packed in, I started driving Smart with Katya and Mariya on the back seat. We took a highway through downtown Tokyo. The traffic was smooth. The sky was blue. Today is Constitution Day, a holiday. Traffic jams from Tokyo were expected. Therefore, after driving through downtown, we got off Chuo Freeway at Inagi to avoid a jam. I found a newly-opened convenience store, Lawson, so I decided to take a break there. Ponta, the Lawson mascot, was helping the opening of the store. I took a coffee, Mariya got surrounded by toys, … Continue reading
Today was Showa Day, a holiday. Everybody got on the car. First, we went to Nishimatsu Ya, a baby-goods shop. We went there to buy a shade for a baby carriage. Then we dropped by Starbucks to get a cup of coffee for me. Then we went back home. After a quick lunch, all of us got on Smart again to Midorigaoka Sports Park. We started a walk. Katya pushed the carriage and I was taking Maya-san with me. After some while, we switched. We placed Mariya in a chair again to go back home. For dinner, I went to Manpuru Roh again. Today’s dishes were … Continue reading
Today is Labor Thanksgiving Day, a holiday. From Shimosuwa, without Maya-san who stayed with my parents, we drove to Atami. It has become the first long trip for Mariya. It rained on and off on the way. From Atami port, we took a boat, Isle de Vacance III. We sat in the special area in the very front of the boat. The boat arrived at 4:30 PM to the island. It was already getting darker. A shuttle bus took us to a hotel, Grand XIV Hatsushima Club. The room was assigned on the sixth floor. From 6:30 PM, we had dinner at an Italian restaurant, Porto. Mariya was with us, … Continue reading
Today is Culture Day, a holiday. I stayed home. I had my hair cut, too. In the afternoon, Katya, Mariya, Maya-san, and I went out for a walk for the first time. I took a picture at Shrine for the War Dead in Kofu.
Today is Respect-for-the Aged Day, a holiday. We checked out and left the hotel after 10 AM. We headed for Gotemba Premium Outlets for shopping. On Hakone Pass on the way to the shopping center, there was a fog. Katya sees better than I, so we changed drivers and Katya started driving. We arrived at the outlet mall safely. After we finished shopping, a rain started, so we had snacks at Fauchon’s. Breads are very good there. After we had sandwiches and drinks, it stopped raining. A bus took us to the parking lot from the mall. From the parking lot, we drove back to Shimosuwa to say a … Continue reading
In September, 15th is Saturday, 16th Sunday, 17th Respect-for-the Aged Day, a holiday. So we are planning to go to Izu Peninsula. On the 15th, a reservation has been made at Hotel Ito Powell. I am waiting for a cancellation at GRAND XIV Hatsushima Club. However, it is not very probable. Probably, I should give up and stay for two nights in Hotel Ito Powell.
Today is Marine Day, a national holiday. I took a double espresso before a long drive, while Katya was busy packing. It was more than a double, which woke me up. Yes, it was a nice stay in Toba. Katya and I checked out the hotel at 10:30 AM. I drove and only stopped twice. We arrive at my parents’ at 3:50 PM. Maya-san was thrilled to see us! After we took a rest, Mom prepare a meal. We had it and left for Kofu with Maya-san. Katya drove this time. We arrived home at 6:30 PM. It was a long journey back home. We all are tired as well … Continue reading
July 14 is Saturday, 15 Sunday, and 16 Marine Day, a national holiday. Katya and I have been planning what to do. Today, I reserved a room in a hotel for two nights in Toba, Mie. Neither of us has been there. It is on a sawtooth shaped coastline, famous for the scenery and fresh fish. There are some islands close by. We might be able to visit one of them.
Yesterday was Sunday, and tomorrow, Vernal Equinox Day, a holiday. Therefore, I had to work hard to finish the jobs remaining from last week and those I cannot do tomorrow. I came back home a little after 8 PM. I am planning to do a bit of work to be relaxed tomorrow. Tomorrow, Katya, Maya-san, and I are planning to visit an ume park, Furoen.
Today is the National Foundation Day, a holiday. In the morning, I worked in my office. In the afternoon, Katya and I took Maya-san for a walk around Ryugaike Lake. It was a warm day. Fishermen were busy fishing basses. Spring is getting closer. Ume blossoms are in bloom. The bicycle shop called me to tell that Lamborghini had been fixed; I walk to the shop to take it. I rode it to the office. The master-degree student graduating this spring asked me to check the presentation. We worked together from 4 PM to 7 PM. At 7 PM, Katya came to pick me up. We went to Red Lobster … Continue reading
