My life in November

November 28 was over now.

I made many decisions before sun rose.

It was a long day.

When I asked for HELP, I realized so many known and unknown persons helped and supported.

I was very surprised at that fact and was moved so much from deep bottom of my heart.

If I made any single mistake when I made decisions, I would have regretted and blamed myself now. 

Thank everyone so much sincerely.

November was full of challenges to me.

My computer was broken.

I had a doubt about cancer.
It was alright now. 
I just go back for check periodically.

So many happened. Rather bad things...

But after bad was clear, good continued.

I thought it was over but it wasn't. 

I have to face one more this month.
Still 2 more days...
I hope so...

I think it would require time and patience.

I hope it continue to the prosperity and happiness to the next year, 2014.


New Lantern at Asakusa Kannon Temple

I went to Asakusa Kannon Temple last Sunday with my good friends and sister. 
There was a painting of a lantern at that time.

I went there again with my guests today.
So I expected the same.

A brand new lantern donated by Panasonic company hung down there!!
I was impressed very much.

This is a dragon curving at the bottom of the lantern.

This is the other side and it says "Gate of Gods of Wind and Thunder!!

I also went to Hamarikyu Garden before the temple.

Then we took a water bus to Asakusa.

Rainbow Bridge over Tokyo Bay.

I visited same places with many guests.
All the memories are being piled up.
I just remembered today was a memorable day to me.
Old meet New in my memory.



I already met Santa Clause!!!

He promised that he would bring me lots of gifts on Chirstmas o(^▽^)o
And of course, presents for you too!!!


poetry reading

I joined an event on Nov. 3rd and read poetry.
An organizer uploaded the stage little by little.
The below video is the beginning of the stage and I read the first poem.

The poem was written and the video was made by the organizer.
I was just there and read it.
I was the first one on the stage and nervous a little but enjoyed very much

The poem was about the disasters of Japan on Mar. 11, 2011.

Disasters came all of sudden.
We were not ready for them.
We lost important things suddenly.
We even can't find anything remained.
They just disappeared.
We don't realize how important they were until we lost.


And piano performance.
This is his original music.


I'll introduce more when the organizer uploaded.

This is a group photo.

It was a very exciting day!


Moved around a lot

I moved around a lot by bullet train yesterday and today.

First, heading for Hamamatsu while eating a piece of apple pie.

Then I checkd the hotel and talked with a staff there.

The plant statue is in front of Hamamatsu station in Shizuoka.
This funny guy is Ieyasu Tokugawa who opend Tokugawa Shogunate government in the 17th century.
Actually his birthplace is Aichi prefecture, next to Shizuoka.
But Shizuoka had strong connections with him.

I moved to Nagoya in Aichi prefecture next and ate late lunch.

Deep-fried pork dipped in red miso on top of rice and sliced cabbage.
This style of pork is a special meal here.

Then I met gusts and moved together to Hamamatsu.

Then finished!

My dinner, fried-noodle, gyoza dumplings and beer!

View from my hotel room.

I didn't notice I could see the Pacific Ocean until next morning.

I had to leave early for Shizuoka with guests.

I wish I could see this beautiful sunrise longer.

After I took them by bullet train, today's job was done and now I'm heading back for Yokohama.

That was very unique job but I am paid well.

Now I'm free! 
I shall go shopping today!!



Venus and Crscent Moon

New Beginning

My computer broke down today.
I couldn't email by my iPhone.
Strange day today.

And wheals of my suitcase were broken.

Before new things start, things especially like electrical appliances are broken, I heard.

A few years ago, my computer broke down and I bought a new one. 
I'm sure my life was dramatically changed at that time.

I hope a good new wave is coming towards me.

I'll have my computer fixed next week since I have a tour this week.


I'm back!

I'm back from the tour!

I slept all day next day and still sleep well.
The photo below was taken at the airport.
A woman next to me is a tour leader and we have known each other for 10 years.
She has seen my growth as a tour guide and as a person.
They are coming back next autumn!!

I like to write about the tour. 
But a new project and works are waiting for me.
When I find time, I'll update little by little.

I'll join an event tomorrow. 
Many artists like singers, pianists and guitarists will join the event and it is held at a hall which capacity is 370.
I'll read poetry the organizer wrote.
I'm excited to see many talented persons!

It is a new moon tomorrow and lunar eclipse.
It must be a new beginning tomorrow.

Enjoy a powerful new moon day!!
