Resort Outlets Yatsugatake

All of us went to “Resort Outlet Yatsugatake“. It was cloudy today, and there were not so many people.    Maya-san had some fun in the dog run. Then we had lunch at an Italian restaurant “Lo Scoiattolo“. Dishes were good as usual for the price.        Mariya and Maya-san were waiting by us.    I had a slight cold and my eye hurt because of a lens, so I stayed in the car with Maya-san while Katya was shopping with Mariya. It started raining. Katya drove us home. For dinner, I cooked Szechuan Sesame Hot Noodles. After dinner, I started cooking Chinese roast pork using a pressure cooker. The pork … Continue reading

Baby Swim Class

Katya and I took Mariya to “Nakadate Sports Center” in Kofu. The center  has an 86-year old history. Katya went to check the swimming pool last week for Mariya’s swimming lessons. Katya and Mariya went into the pool, while I watched them from the second floor. The water in the pool is GREEN because it is natural hot water from 300-m depth. The green color is that of chlorophyll. Actually, I did not see them well and got bored after 10 minutes. Katya said Mariya enjoyed the class. An instructor told me the same. Probably, Katya and Mariya will join the class from June.

iPhone returns

In the morning, Katya sent me a mail, telling that the iPhone is already delivered to me. After coming back home, I opened the box. There was a note inside the box; my iPhone was renewed. It cost only 4,400 yen because I was enrolled in the AppleCare Protection Plan. I was not very glad to get a new one because I like using machines for a long time, as I tried to do for my Nikon camera. After a meal, Mariya sits on her own chair. I am glad she doesn’t mind keeping herself on it.

Summer has come

I had two classes today. During the lectures, I used the air conditioners to cool down for the first time in this year. Mariya wore a short‐sleeved shirt.

Sunday shopping

In the afternoon, Katya, Mariya and I went out for shopping leaving Maya-san home. We dropped at a public parking lot to see roses around the fences.    Then we went to an au shop, a telephone company to talk about my broken iPhone; there is no AppleStore in Kofu. I had called to Apple, and the operator told me that with the number he gave me, I was able to borrow an iPhone at any au shop. The man at the au shop told me that he knew nothing about this system and that he could not do anything for me. Nothing can I do, either. I have to call … Continue reading

Experiments continued

From the early morning, I have been carrying out experiments with a student of mine and a researcher from Panasonic. By our side, a professor from Keio University was doing his with my colleague. When I had time, I was writing a paper, too. Students came to me once in a while to ask me how to submit their abstracts and register themselves with the conference (actually, the registration procedure was very complicated). I got so tired after these three day. When I came home, Katya started talking with her parents on Skype. Mariya was on a new  foam-plastic matress we bought at Babies “R” Us in Odaiba.    Katya … Continue reading

Tomi no Oka on Sunday

It is Sunday today. There is a Suntory Winery, “Tomi no Oka” on the hill of Kai City next to Kofu. Katya and I went there for lunch with Mariya. We passed by the winery to the restaurant. There were not so many cars. We walked to the restaurant.    At the restaurant, “Wine Terrace“, we took seats outside. Katya and Mariya sat in the shadow under a tree. From the tree, a snake of a meter and a half dropped down by them! The snake was let go, and Katya changed the seat. Katya had fish and I had beef.    Eating out under a blue sky was pleasant. … Continue reading

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.

Welcome party at Monojiya

There was a welcome party of a research group in the institute. I went into a narrow side street, “Chochin Yokocho” near Kofu Station. I walked up into a building.  Looks weird. We had the party at Monojiya. They made the inside old and cheap as in the 60s.    The party started at 7 PM.  I sneaked out at 8 PM to see Katya and Mariya.
