I Go to Cafe in the Morning

Usually, we go to Cafe for lunch.
The cafe called Bistro Quatorze opens their shop from early morning to midnight.
They prepare light breakfast in the morning and serve strong whisky and tequila at night.
There were no other customers except us because we got there before 8 o'clock.
Sometimes, I can make good use of a day by going cafe in the morning.

I Attend a Religious Ceremony in My Hometown

My mother, my brother and sister planed a ceremony of twelfth anniversary of my father's death.
We called it Jyuu-san-kaiki in Japanese or in the special term of Buddhisum.
My wife, two daughters and I went to my hometown about 1000 km west of my home, Matsue city.
We attended the ceremony, enjoyed delicious lunch and a reunion there.

Air Trip to Shimane

I went back to my home town with my family by air the other day.
Traveling by airplane is always a great fun to me this season because snow capped mountains are so beautiful.
Changing outside scenery made me forget a lapse of time during 90 minutes flight from Tokyo to Yonago.

I Go to Curry House Colombia




My wife and I went to a restaurant specialized in South American curry dishes the other day.

The name of the restaurant was Colombia.
They served unfamiliar taste of curry food.

There are many Indian curry restaurants in our city but few cook Colombian curry.

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.
