Early Winter in Kiyosato

After taking Maya-san for a walk, we drove to “Kiyosato no Mori“.  Winter has come. With the temperature of 5 C, Maya-san was busy digging. Then we moved to “Sun Meadows Kiyosato Ski Resort“, which is planned to be open for ski on December 18. We were the only ones to visit the place today. We went to look at the slope and the lift station. With the temperature of 2 C, Maya-san was busy digging by the snow. We are planning to ski on a different mountain on the Christmas day. The slope on the mountain is partially ready for skiing. We hope there will be more snow.

Tetsuro Kawashima Quartet

In the afternoon, I took smart to YANASE Kofu for the 12th-month inspection. They let me use their car for one day during the inspection. This car is much too bigger than Smart, and I feel less comfortable. In the evening, Katya and I went to a Jazz concert of Tetsuro Kawashima Quartet held in the civic hall of Koku.  Kawashima is a popular sax player. The concert was supported by Kofu city, thus the ticket cost only 1,000 yen each. We went to the concert last year, too.  This year, the rest of all three members, pianist, drummer, and bass player, except Kawashima, have changed. The new members with Kawashima … Continue reading
