1999 April 18


A beautiful April day I went to a park, which is very familiar to me since my childhood. This is my most favorite place in the World. This park's name is Bajikôen which means a park of horse affairs, and naturally you can see many horses and sometimes games
I hope you'll enjoy a wonderful day with me.

1,200 years ago escaping from wars many Korean people passed over the sea. They started their new life in Japan. This area still has exotic feelings. In middle of September, the wood along the river is filled with Manjushage flowers. There's a shrine dedicated to a Korean King. Let's start our excursion there. (Completely renewed 99/09/19)

Festival night at a shrine

In Autumn, many shrines have a festival. Those festivals were meant for thanks for harvest. Because of my bad health condition, I couldn't have nice shots, and I got back home before the most interesting scenes. Still, I hope you'll get some interesting things on the album.

Zenkôji temple

Do you remember Nagano Olympic games of winter? In Nagano, there's a very old temple 'Zenkôji'. When I went there, many dressed children were there. They came to be celebrated for 7-5-3 festival. Girls of 7 years and 3 years old, and boys of 5 years old get celebrated on November 15. But, this ceremony takes places very often in advance.

Even in winter, plum blossoms give a strong and sweet fragrance. We don't need to stay home. The air is cold, but it's clean. The plum perfume makes our mind sweet.

2000 June 10 East Garden The old castle area is divided into several parts. East part was the most important part in that era, and there were the tower and main buildings. Nowadays we cannot see ancient buildings, but we can enjoy a beautiful garden.

2000 Dec. 10 Night Market Twice or three time at the end of year depending year, a particular market is held in several shrine yard. There they sell only rakes. Rakes for gathering money and fortune. There come store, restaurant and bar owners to buy rakes. Rakes are too decorated and not used for usual purposes. You see, these rakes are port-fortunes. 

2001 Jan. 28 A Snowy Day This year it snows much here at Tôkyô. Yesterday, it snowed for the third time. Everything was covered with snow. I went outside to take the charms of the snow.
