Utsunomiya Animation Festival 2015 Part-3




Needless to say their clothes were well prepared, their postures and facial expressions seemed far better than B-class movie stars.


When I was taking their pictures, I thought, they were able to become professional actors or actresses.

Utsunomiya Animation Festival 2015 Part-2




Anime-painted cars were on display in Banba square for the festival days.

Car owners from nearby prefectures came to the festival site.

They enjoyed talking and boasting with buddy geeks about their elaborately decorated cars.




It's sometimes hard to tell their gender in their costume.

Utsunomiya Animation Festival 2015 Part-1



Utsunomiya Animation Festival 2015 was held last month.

Many animation fans wearing their favorite animation character's clothes took part in the festival.

They loved to be a photo model.
When people asked to take their pictures, they were willing to hold a pose which, they thought, was sure to be the best shot.

On the day, every participant was able to become their favorite animation character, at least they believed so.

She Makes Her First Flight from the Nest


A delivery man brought home a surprise present about a month ago on a sunny Sunday.

It was from our daughter Emi.

On the message card with the present, she said, 'I got my first salary from my company. Enjoy eating delicious meal.'


My wife Kiyono chose blowfish from the food catalog packed with the present.

A week later, a frozen baloonfish cooking set arrived home.

Yes, we enjoyed the cuisine in both way, the taste and also the feeling that she had left her nest and was able to fly with her own wings.
