I got off at San Francisco, went through immigration and took a flight to Minneapolis. I had to spend for more than 5hours at Minneapolis. It was too long and boring. I think I know everything about Minneapolis Airport. I ate sandwiches and chili soup there. I ate sandwiches and chili soup there. I got very hungry, so I thought I would be able to eat everything. But I completely forgot about American size. I regretted that I bought the sandwiches.
The flight to Missoula was pretty short. I had slept throughout that flight.
I had a trip to U.S. . The last time I visited was a long time ago. This time I visited Glacier National Park. I left my apartment on 19th. I went to Itami Airport and had a breakfast. Itami Airport had changed a little. I ate a typical Japanese breakfast. . I flew to Haneda, got on a bus for one hour and arrived at Narita Airport. I had already gotten tired. Narita Airport was really really crowded. I had to wait about one hour for check-in.
The flight to San Francisco was very long. The pilot said that that day was head wind, we would take 10-hour flight.
I had nothing to do during the flight. Many people watched movies, but I had a headache, so I just seated. I ate Oyako-donburi. It wasn't good. When I got on an airplane first time, in-flight meal was a big fun. But now, I don't feel anything.
I went to Kyoto National Museum last night. Now you can see one of the most famous pictures, Minamotono Yoritomo, in Japan. Many Japanese have seen it on a schoolbook before. Yoshiko went there last weekend, and she said it hadn’t been crowded. I thought last night was a big chance for me to go there.
The museum wasn’t crowded as Yoshiko said. I could see a lot of Japanese treasures. Many pictures lost them colors. It is a pity. But some of them were painted about 1000 years ago. Minamotono Yoritomo image was big. It didn’t lose its colors. It is in a good preservation. I always thought he was handsome, but he wasn’t handsome than in my memory.
My favorite one was a picture of monkeys. Those monkeys seemed alive and I felt the touch of the monkeys’ hair.
The museum had many collections, so I got tired. I didn’t see enough the last section of the museum. Any way, I really enjoyed seeing the collections.
A few weeks ago, I went to Keihan Department store as usual. It had held Hokkaidou and Kyushu fair. You could eat a really good Sara-Udon. Of course, I went to Keihan Department store to eat Sara-Udon. I looked at many kinds of rare goods. It was a big fun.
I looked at salmon fillets. It seemed delicious but one piece was 420 yen. It was a little expensive.
************************* I used to buy a salmon fillet at Senbayashi, but that store closed the shutters. Since then, I haven’t bought salmon fillets a lot. **************************
I was thinking if I bought the salmon or not. 420 yen was expensive, but I lived alone, so I didn’t have to buy many pieces.
Then, salesclerk said he gave me a discount. He said 4 pieces were only 1000yen. It seemed a good deal, but I didn’t need 4 pieces. I considered and decided to buy. I said I would take them, so he said he gave me one more piece.
I bought 5 salmon fillets for 1000 yen. That was a good buy. But, what is the price?
My blog page is not popular. I always think my blog page is read by only my sister, brother-in-law and my close friends. I guess you think I like English, but I don’t. If I were you, I won’t read a blog written in English. My eyes avoid seeing English. So I can understand the reason that my blog page is unpopular.
But sometimes a few readers look at my blog pages. I want to say thank you very much. Yesterday someone read my blog pages. He/she read more than 200 pages. Didn’t he/she feel tired? I don’t know.
Anyway, I want to write a diary everyday for my readers.
If you live in Kantou area, it might be very famous. But in Osaka, it isn’t popular. It is ‘Pe young yakisoba’. ‘Pe young yakisoba’ is an instant yakisoba and is popular in Kantou area. But I’ve never seen it before. A few weeks ago, I found it at a convenience store and bought it. I ate it tonight. It was a big size. Then, I remembered why I bought a bigger one. It’s because I really like an instant yakisoba. I thought I couldn’t eat whole yakisoba. When I was a kid, I visited my grandmother. She asked me what I wanted to eat for lunch, I said I wanted to eat Myojyo teppan yakisoba. She said I was a person who didn’t cost money.
The taste wasn’t bad, but I love ‘Myojyo teppan yakisoba’. ‘Pe young yakisoba’ isn’t better than ‘Myojyo teppan yakisoba’. I don’t think I will buy it one more time.
Last night, I prepared my trip to U.S., and realized that my suitcase was too small for that trip. My suitcase is for 3-day trip, and my trip is 10 days. I went to Keihan-mall, Loft, and Yodo(ya)bashi-camera. Loft and Yodo(ya)bashi-camera had many choices.
Some suitcases seemed very good and inexpensive. I wanted to buy one of them but it was 4.5kg. 4.5kg isn’t heavy as a suitcase but it seems very heavy for me.
I didn’t buy a suitcase. I have to decide in one day.
Now I am 42 years old and I haven’t been married yet. My brother-in-law always worries about me but I didn’t have a good chance to be married.
A few days ago, one of my co-workers said he liked me. It seems like good news, but he has a wife. Sometimes some guys give me the same kind of words but they always have their wives. Ｉ’ｍ not sure, but I might seem I am a convenient person for an amourette.
They are sometimes annoying me, because they want me to go out with me. They sometimes want to give me valuable things. I want them to spend the money for their wives.
I want to know if this situation is common or not.
We went to see a seal afterwards. A sea elephant was really relaxed. It seemed it was in a heaven. It didn’t do anything. It was only sleeping. Tsuru-chan said she didn’t have to work hard. Tsuru-chan and I thought we wanted to be like the sea elephant. When we looked at a seal, it started to rain. We still looked at turtles, but the rain was getting harder, so we decided we went back to our homes.
We bought some souvenirs, got on a bus and a train. We ate Ramen at Tokyo Station. We were very hungry, so the Ramen was delicious. We got on the Shinkansen and went back to our each apartment. That was the hardest trip I’ve ever taken.
We went to see orca, afterwards. Seeing orca is the main reason of our visit. Kamogawa Sea World has 6 orcas. Before the show started, I looked at orcas. Orca was very big. The smaller one was a baby orca, but it was big too. Orca has two colors, black and white, but the baby orca was black and yellow. The show started. It was dynamic. The biggest orca was a father. I don’t know how to describe him because I’ve never seen such a big animal before. All orcas are clever and listened to a trainer. The show was exciting. But the pool seemed too small for them. During the show, the baby orca swam about. Its name was Ran and she was cute. We really enjoyed the Orca Show.
Just after we arrived, we checked show times. We had the time before the shows, so we looked around Sea World. It has some small tanks and some show stadiums. We stopped in front of those tanks and looked at fish, sharks and turtles. Turtles had almond eyes and they seemed they were evil.
We went to see “bluga”. Beluga is a whale. Its color is gray and it has a hump on its head. The show program said it had a beluga performance, so I guessed a beluga would jump and dance. But it wouldn’t. We learned a behavior of beluga. Even if its eyes are covered ,it can see an objects. The beluga was really clever and cute.
After we saw the show, we moved to Dolphin Show, but the show stadium was already full, so we gave up seeing the show and ate snacks.
On the 17th. We woke up early and left a hotel. We planned to go to Kamogawa Sea World. Now you can see a baby orca at Kamogawa Sea World. It rained hard. Tsuru-chan didn’t have an umbrella, so she bought it at a convenience store. We took a subway and a train. We got an express at Tokyo Station. We had to spend on the train for 2 hours. We ate breakfast on the train. We arrived at Kamogawa around 11:00. It didn’t rain there. We got on a bus and went toward Kamogawa Sea World. Tsuru-chan left her umbrella on the train. She used her umbrella only one minute.
Shonentai musical is always boring. This year’s musical seemed better than usual, but it was still boring. Shonentai always sings their songs after musicals, but this year they didn’t. That mini concert is our small fun, so Tsuru-chan and I were disappointed. When I saw Shonentai musical for the fist time, I was really surprised, because I couldn’t understand why they had a small concert after musical. But now, I am waiting for the small concert. A feeling of person is easy to change.
After we saw the musical, we went to MacDonald, went to a hotel and slept.
I went to Aoyama Theater. Tsur-chan and I go to Aoyama Theater every summer to see Shonentai musical. We don’t think we are still Shonentai fan, but going to Aoyama Theater is our big event. I met Tsuru-chan in front of Aoyama Theater. We went to the theater and had a seat. Just before the musical started, many audiences started to say something. Then, Ko-chan, Takky and Mitsuko Mori were coming. Tsuru-chan said Ko-chan was really handsome.
Finally I bought a new mobile phone. It was 29800 yen. It seems expensive, but it has a keyboard. I think you have an experience that when you try to write something with mobile phone in English, it’s annoying you. It is really hard to make a document by mobile phone. My new mobile phone has very small keyboard. It's still difficult to write, but better than the normal mobile phone. Now, I can write blog anywhere. My mobile phone is white and cute. The bad thing it is that a battery dies soon. I have to charge the battery often. Anyway, my new mobile phone is very useful and helpful.
