I went to Tokyo University of Science at Kagurazaka for two meetings, an awards ceremony, a lecture, and a party of a scientific society I am joining. I went up to the 17th floor. I am an official of the society. I had recommended a professor for the society prize, which he received. So I went to see him awarded and giving a lecture. After his lecture, there was a small party. I congratulated him on his award. He was happy. After coming back to Kofu, I saw booths of wineries in front of the station. Many people were enjoying wines and foods. Tasting would have been fun if I … Continue reading
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.
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
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
We had breakfast in Oceano. I first went to the restaurant alone and finished mine, while Katya was taking care of Mariya in the room. Then, Katya took her turn and I was playing with Mariya. Mariya has been a very good girl during the trip. We took a boat, Isle de Vacances III, from Hatsushima to Atami, leaving at 11:10 AM. From Atami, we drove to our apartment in Kofu. I left Katya and Mariya at our apartment, and drove alone to my parents’ in Shimosuwa taking the Chuo Freeway. At our parents, I saw Maya-san; she was happily came to kiss me as usual. Although she enjoys being with … Continue reading
Yesterday, after the registration of Mariya as a Kofu citizen at the city hall, I received a certificate of her presence in Kofu. Today, at my university, I applied for an insurance card for Mariya with the certificate, which will cover 70% of the medical costs. This evening, I bathed Mariya. Then I played with her to make her tired before the night comes, so that she will sleep rather deeply. Mariya was sometimes put in a baby car and sometimes held in my arms.
During the lunch time, I went to the city hall of Kofu to register Mariya as a citizen. I gave the name, “Mariya”, and the date of birth with a certificate from Nagasaka Clinic. Now Mariya is somebody. I am relieved. Tomorrow, I will apply for her insurance.
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.
I checked out “Sun Members Kobe” in the morning. I took breakfast at UESHIMA coffee shop located under the monorail station in Sannomiya. After taking a monorail, I arrived at the conference center at 9:30 AM. I gave a 20-minute talk from 10:20 AM and quickly left the conference hall and took a monorail back to Sannomiya. From Osaka, I took a plane back again to Haneda. There were vacant seats inside. After arriving at Haneda Airport, I moved to Kawasaki for a research report meeting of our institute. After the meeting in Kawasaki, I headed for Shinjuku this time for a real-estate meeting. After the meeting in Shinjuku, I … Continue reading
The highest temperature in Kofu was 24 degree C, whereas the lowest, 10 degree C. It is getting much cooler these days. People tend to be out of condition when the season changes. This afternoon, one of my students felt sick and was taken to the hospital. I was with him. He seems to be OK, but his mother took him home.
