I Go Hiking Along Riverside Trails in Kinugawa Hot Spa Resort


Since two hour hiking course was well maintained, my wife and I enjoyed seeing beautiful waterfalls and good walking exercises; even some part of the trails were wet and slippery.

Mountain Trail in the Rain




The mountain trail started just behind Jiganji-temple in Nikko.

My wife and I stepped in the path and walked just for one hundred meters in the rain.

The leaves of trees at both side of the path, beautifully shining green, seemed to become blazing red in autumn season.


We walked down the steps, painted a red demon, from our hotel to a bridge over Kinu river and were gazing at the flow of water for several minutes.
Before we noticed it, the rain had been over.

View from the Hotel Balcony at Kinugawa Onsen Spa Resort

I think it is sometimes important to take a rest and do nothing.
Just look at a changing scenery from a hotel balcony for looong time.

The day we stayed at Kinugawa Onsen Spa Resort was like the moment my wife and I spent.

The color of the mountains, the sky and the river surface were changing with a lapse of time.

The dinner at the hotel was more than perfect and we enjoyed ample time of hot spa bathing.

Kinugawa Onsen Riverside



I went to Kinugawa Onsen spa resort with my wife in autumn last year.

The river had smoke on the surface of the wafer.

There were plants having beautiful berries.

My wife in the left picture behind the berry tree was taking a picture of me.
Then, the picture follows here.

I Go to a Sushi Shop with Family Members

 I went to a sushi restaurant with all my family members when two daughters came back home to cerebrate the new year, 2017.

I have few pictures of mine taken with my wife. Because, either of my wife or I take a picture of the other usually.

The above picture is one of rare ones.


A month before having gone to a sushi shop, my wife and I went to an Italian restaurant called Popolamama.

They were offering customers special discounts to cerebrate their yearly anniversary.
Crab meat spaghetti could not be better taste.

I Go to Cafe Michikusa




My wife and I went to a Cafe Michikusa the other day.

The cafe stands on the top of a hill just twenty minutes car drive away from home.

Customers can see a forest view while eating and can feel its quiet atmosphere.

The cafe owner also had collection of antiques and was selling some of them for reasonable prices.

I Go to Kanda-Surugadai in Tokyo



I went to Tokyo to attend a workshop of software  development for two days at the end of last year.

The workshop was held at a building near Tokyo Resurrection Cathedral or Nikorai-do on the hill at Kanda Surugadai.

It is said that the Cathedral was completed on March 8, 1891, construction having begun seven years earlier.


I had a bowl of needle soup for the fist day lunch and a dish of curry with a pork cutlet for the second day lunch on 17th floor of Meiji university's cafeteria.

It was a sunny peaceful day when we visit the site during my five-day-consecutive-day-off vacation.

My company gives every employees a five-day-consecutive-day-off once a year.

One of places we went spending the days was the old Japanese soldier Heike's monument.

November 3rd is Culture Day in Japan and, at the same time, it is our wedding anniversary.

It was our 25th anniversary on the day.

We took a picture for our memory and went to a Japanese restaurant 'Nonoji' for lunch.

Five years ago, we cerebrated the twentieth anniversary like this.
