At the pond, at 6 a.m.

I have started jogging and taking a walk in the morning. I don’t know how many more days I will do it, but, so far, it has been enjoyable.   This Wadabori-park, where probably only neighbors know, is such a beautiful park. Pond, river, trees, temple, succor fields,…. And the morning sun makes everything look so fresh and alive.   Please feel free to be my neighbor and enjoy beautiful mornings.

Sarushima –  Tiny Inhabitable Island

Sarushima – Tiny Inhabitable Island

It’s gradually getting warmer now, some days feels like early summer. So, I visited an deserted island  😯 called the SARUSHIMA. This Sarushima is the largest natural island in the Tokyo bay. Though it is the “largest”, it’s only 200m width, 450m length and so very small  😆 From Shinagawa, one of the main station on the Yamanote line, it’s only 1 hr 15min in total including the train, barge and a bit of walk between the station and the wharf. Just an hour and a bit away, and you are there! You can swim at the beach in Summer time, but since the water is still chilly, maybe just […]

“WHAT DO YOU DO” – Hilarious poem about natto by James Kelly

“WHAT DO YOU DO” – Hilarious poem about natto by James Kelly

I don’t think he really intended for it to be posted on this blog or others, but a friend of mine in Aomori Prefecture, Japan, recently wrote a poem about being broke and only having natto in the fridge.  Maybe some of you can identify! For those who don’t know, natto is sticky, fermented beans, a strange delicacy here in Japan.  It’s notorious for being disliked by western people.  James doesn’t actually despise natto or anything, but when it’s the only food in your fridge and you have to eat it plain.. well… that’s just heartbreaking. Anyway, here’s the poem, and all credit goes to James (edited a minor spelling […]
