I AM A GOOD GUY!

(2008-06-30)
I worked at a shop on Sunday.
It was like a part time job.

I have worked at that shop until two years ago.
One of my friends has worked at that shop and I have helped her.
After she left that shop, I still have worked there.
Two years ago, the shop was scaled down.
A new clerk came to the shop and I left that shop.

That shop is a kind of grocery store.
They sell some food and daily goods.


Since I left that shop, I haven’t worked there
but I still meet some shop clerks who work around the shop.

Last Saturday, one of shop clerks asked me how to use a resister.
A woman who works at the shop is ill and that shop needed my help.

That’s why I worked at Sunday.

Working at the shop was very fun.
Some customers remembered me and bought a couple of goods.
I was really happy to hear that.

When I left there, I thought I would never work there.
Any employees of that shop didn’t say thank you.
I haven't earned money, though.
I think I have a good personality.

If they ask me to help them, I will probably go and help them.

WATCH YOUR STEP!

(2008-06-29)
Today when I arrived at the Yodoyabashi Station, the train has just gone be.
I rushed to the train.
An old man was also running.
Then he tripped over the train entrance.
He hit his head and bled.
He dropped his umbrella between the train and the truck.

The train didn’t leave.
A conductor asked him if he was OK.
He said he was fine, but he didn’t seem fine.

A few minutes later, a station staff came to the train.
He brought the old man down from the train.
And the train left.

Until the station staff came, the old man has been staring at the open air.
The conductor talked to him something but he didn’t answer.

I think he was ashamed.
But his action was annoying.
He stopped the train because of his silly action.

Anyway, I learned that I shouldn’t rush the train.


THE TEISHOKU-YA WHICH I USUALLY GO TO...

(2008-06-28)
Momo-chan and I go to a teishoku-ya for lunch sometimes.
They have delicious miso-soup and rolled-egg.

Four employees work at the teishoku-ya.
Two of them are cooks and the others are waitresses.

One waitress has a surly attitude.
She put tea on a table very rough.
Her tone is always violent.
I don’t think she want us to come to her restaurant.

Yesterday I saw a menu. She said, “Don’t touch it”.
Why she wouldn’t hide the menu if she didn’t want us to touch it?

The interesting thing is that the other employees are too polite.
I think they feel sorry for us her attitude.

Momo-chan thinks that woman is probably owner’s wife or something.
That’s why no one corrects her and no one fires her.


HOW TO TEACH ..

(2008-06-26)
Chinese lesson is always very exciting.
I can learn not only language but also Chinese culture.
China is very big.
So they have different cultures at each area.

As I said my teacher, U-sensei, left the school.
Two teachers taught me Chinese afterwards.

A young lady, who is a Kyoudai student, is very mild.
She teaches Chinese step by step.
Before we start to study, she writes down that day’s points on a whiteboard and explains.

The next teacher is my image of the teacher.
He teaches very well.
Last time I told him that U-sensei liked cooking and she told me how to cook ‘stir-fried eggs and tomatoes.’

He said he had been surprised when he visited the area where U-sensei was born.
Many people have eaten ‘stir-fried eggs and tomatoes’ at restaurants.
According to him, he has never eaten it at restaurants.
It was the one that they eat at home.

By the way, I always think how Chinese teachers teach Chinese to the people from other countries.
I mean, when they teach, they often use Chinese characters.
Even if I cannot understand what they said, I can understand by Chinese characters.

But the most of people cannot read Chinese characters.
I think it is difficult to teach.


I LOVE JAPAN.

(2008-06-25)
I wrote a letter to U-sensei.
Yesterday, one of Chinese teachers checked my Chinese.
I will send it in a few days.

That teacher is not my new Chinese teacher.
He always teaches another student, so I think his student was absent last night.
He was an announcer in China.
He came to Japan several years ago and went to a university.
He graduated from the collage this spring and now he is an employee of the school.

Some of Chinese teachers come to Japan to go to Japanese university.
I know two teachers who go to Kyoudai.
They want to get a job in Japan.
But I think it is too difficult to find a job.


I don’t know the other countries. I know only Japan.
I like to visit the other countries but I don’t want to live in the other countries.

Why don’t they work in China?
I think they can get a good job because they are very clever.
Are Chinese people thinking that there are their dream in Japan?


A SCREW KEWPIE DOLL

(2008-06-24)
080624


A screw Kewpie doll has boomed.
What is the screw Kewpie doll?
A Kewpie doll wears a screw. This is the screw Kewpie.

It is made by a back-street screw factory.
A man and his family make the screw Kewpie dolls after their daily work.
All of dolls are handmade, so they cannot make many dolls a day.

I don’t know why people want to buy it.
But sometimes Japanese want to get strange things.

This morning, I saw people who wanted to buy the dolls on T.V..
They have lined up in front of the factory.
I think they woke up very early to buy the dolls.

The man of the factory is wise.
He thinks this boom passes through quickly.
He doesn’t care because making Kewpie doll is not his job.


U-sensei

(2008-06-23)
My Chinese teacher, U-sensei, is ill.

I was very surprised.
When I saw her last time, she seemed fine.

I really liked her lessons.
Her lessons were exciting and powerful.
She sometimes spoke very fast.
You don’t think I can understand what she says, do you?
But I can understand because of gesture and Chinese characters.
She knows the best way for communication.

We sometimes talked about food.
She loves cooking and she told me Chinese foods.
I said I liked eggs, so she told me ‘stir-fried egg and tomato’.
She said it was very popular in China.
I really liked to talk to her.

She left the school.
I will meet a new teacher.

Now I’m writing a letter to U-sensei.
I want to say thank you and I want to meet her one more time.


YAKUSHIMA-21-5/31

(2008-06-21)
On the 31st.

This day was the day that I had to leave Yakushima.

I ate breakfast and went to buy souvenirs.
The souvenir shop was about two kilometers from the Inn.
Of course, I was thinking to go to on foot.
When I wore shoes, an old man and an old lady who are parents of the owner asked me if I wanted them to drive me there. They were polite.
I arrived early, so I waited in front of the souvenir shop.

YAKUSHIMA-20-5/30 RYUJINSUGI

(2008-06-20)
080530-8-

We went back to the parking lot.
I felt it was a short trip.
I wanted to stay more and more.
This forest is comfortable and makes me fresh.

On the way back to the Inn, Ma-chan picked up a wild berry. It was a little sour but sweet.

This day was long and short.
It was one of the most memorable days in my life.


YAKUSHIMA-19-5/30 RYUJINSUGI -ANIMALS.-.

(2008-06-19)
I want to talk about other animals.
A deer lives in Yakushima.
They are smaller than the deer in Nara-park.

According to Ma-chan, the deer at Ryujinsugi area doesn’t familiar with people.
That's why they don’t approach people.
The deer which lives in Jyoumonsugi area always see people and people feed them.
That’s why the Jyoumonsugi deer loves human.
It is terrible.

I saw deer several times. But when they saw us, they ran away quickly.


Monkey also lives in Yakushima.
I saw a bunch of monkeys when I went to Kuromidake.
They just looked at me. They were really cute.

These two kinds of animals are popular in Yakushima.
According to Ma-chan, there are no big animals except deer and monkey in Yakushima.


YAKUSHIMA-18-5/30 RYUJINSUGI -A LEECH..-.

(2008-06-18)
I have to write about a leech.
Only one terrible thing in this forest is a leech.

There are thousands or millions of leeches live there.
The first time we saw it was on Ma-chan’s hand.
It was about 3 centimeters.
Ma-chan tried to take it off but it was too hard to take it of.
It was like a Chinese softshell turtle.

We found them many times afterwards.

They stick on you while you haven’t realized.

There were seven leeches on my clothes.
A leech has already finished drinking my blood when I realized.
Ma-chan said it was neither painful nor itchy.
He was right.
But the blood didn’t stop.
It seems like a murder.


YAKUSHIMA-18-5/30 Ryujinsugi

(2008-06-17)
We crossed the stream again.

I really worried if we couldn’t cross the stream.
The worst case is that you cannot cross the stream because of the rise of the stream.
Luckily, the stream was calmer than I thought.

After we crossed the stream, we walked slowly
and looked around the trees, the moss, and any other scenes.

Ma-chan explained a couple of things.
I could see a bud of moss. It was cute. A bunch of mosses seemed a small forest.
I felt I could see dwarfs lived there.

We stopped several times and saw the views.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t take pictures.
It was raining and the lens of camera has misted.


YAKUSHIMA-17-5/30 Ryujinsugi

(2008-06-16)
080530-9-


Ma-chan stopped suddenly.
Then I saw very big tree.
That was Ryujinsugi.
It was amazing.
It was big, tall and mysterious.
It is only one tree which is called ‘GOD’ in Yakushima.
I think it has lived more than 1000years, but it didn’t seem it was old.
I felt the power of Ryujinsugi, and it said, “I’m not old. I have to work more and more”.

I looked up the tree. Other trees leaves surrounded the Ryujinsugi.
Those leaves seemed they protected the Ryujinsugi or they were one part of the Ryujinsugi.

YAKUSHIMA-16-5/30 Ryujinsugi

(2008-06-15)
We could see the sign of direction.
It said “Ryujinsugi XX km”.
XX part was blank. I thought I would arrive soon.

But this last part was very tough.
My heart was pounding very hard.
My right hand grabbed a stick, my left hand grabbed branches, and I climbed up.

By the way, trees are very strong.
Even if branch is thin, it will never break.
They are flexible and strong.

続きを読む



YAKUSHIMA-15-5/30 Ryujinsugi

(2008-06-14)
Almost the entire trail was covered with fallen leaves.
The scene was like autumn.
Of course, it wasn’t autumn.
I could see fresh green colors and brown fallen leaves

We had to climb the steep steps one more time. But it wasn’t harder than I thought.
It was because Ma-chan walked slowly.

YAKUSHIMA-14-5/30 Ryujinsugi

(2008-06-13)
After we walked for 1 hour, we arrived at the starting point of the hiking trail.
The bottom of the mountain was a subtropical area.
We could see trees, which had big leaves.
I felt that I was walking in a jungle.

After we passed through the jungle, the scene was completely changed.
We could see many thin trees. We walked on stones.
These trees and the stones were covered with moss.
It was foggy, so I felt I was in a fantastic story.

On the 30th.

That day’s plan was to go to Ryujin-sugi.
Many tourists visit Jyoumonsugi but I heard that the trail of Jyoumonsugi was too crowded, so I chose the Ryujin-sugi trail.

The guide, Ma-chan, picked me up at 7:30A.M.
The good thing was the start point of the trail was close to the Inn.

The name is Minshuku Yakushima.

YAKUSHIMA-11-5/29: OOKONO TAKI WATERFALLS

(2008-06-10)
080529-13-


I got on the bus again and got off at the Ookono-taki waterfalls.

The waterfalls were dynamic.
I could approach the bottom of waterfalls.
Splash water made me cool. It was a little hot and muggy day.

BISTROT DE L'MAGE

(2008-06-09)
I went to a French restaurant, Bistrot de l’image.
Swimmer always says it is a good restaurant.
He means that it NOT a first-class restaurant, but it is inexpensive and the taste is enough delicious.

YAKUSHIMA-10-5/29: THE FRUIT GARDEN

(2008-06-09)
The road from the bus stop to the fruit garden was a little tough.
Some cars passed me. I wanted to get on it.

YAKUSHIMA-9-5/29: ONOAIDA ONSEN

(2008-06-08)
I went back to the Inn, changed my clothes and went to Onoaida hot springs.

080528-4-


The temperature of the hot springs was a little hot but it was really comfortable.
It is said that a deer, which was hurt, cured its injury.
I think it is true.
I felt my injury was getting better.


I went to a fruit park afterwards at Nakama.

YAKUSHIMA-8-5/29: GAJUMARU PARK

(2008-06-07)
On the 29th.

I bought a one-day bus ticket.
That day’s plan was to look around Yakushima by bus.

A PAN CAKE CAFE

(2008-06-07)
080607PANCAKE

I went to a pan cake shop.
It is a café.
They serve only pan cakes except drinks.

Swimmer always looked at this café from bus and we always talked about it.

What is the pan cake shop???

We LOVE a pan cake, but a pan cake is only a pan cake…

Anyway, we visited that shop.
It was close to the Kuzuha Station.

There was no one in the café.
We ordered pan cake and tea.

The surface of the pan cake was very smooth.
But the taste wasn’t special.

I wanted to ask them why they decided to open this shop, but I didn’t ask.

Even if the taste was not so good, we were satisfied, because we always have thought we would never die before we ate the pan cake there.


YAKUSHIMA-7-5/28:KUROMIDAKE TRAIL

(2008-06-06)
We ate lunch under the tree.
The guide boiled water and made hot tea.
I was a little cold, so I felt this hot tea made me comfortable.

The rain was getting harder and harder.
I wanted to go back to the Inn soon.

YAKUSHIMA-6-5/28:KUROMIDAKE TRAIL

(2008-06-05)
This mountain was very beautiful.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t take beautiful pictures because of rain…
The mountain was like a natural Japanese garden.
The trees around the top of the mountain were not so tall.
And they seemed they were cut by a professional gardener.
Of course, nobody made this garden.
They were formed by themselves.
Young buds of rhododendrons were dark pink but the flowers were light pink.
The contrasts of these colors were fascination.

YAKUSHIMA-5-5/28:KUROMIDAKE TRAIL

(2008-06-04)
The trail is about 8.2kilometers. It didn’t seem so hard.
The trail from the yodogawa-goya to Hananoego is normal.
It sounds boring, but it wasn’t boring.
We could see some flowers and many trees on the trail

We arrived at Hananoego.
Hananoego is a marsh.
We couldn’t see a beautiful view because it was foggy.

Anyway…

YAKUSHIMA-4- 5/28:KUROMIDAKE TRAIL

(2008-06-03)
On the 28th.
That day plan was climbing Kuromidake.

I woke up very early, got on a bus.
The guide, Ma-chan, picked up me at Anbou and drove to the place from which the ascent was made.
I think it was around 7:00A.M.
When we got there, it was raining.
We ate breakfast in his car, wore a rain ware and were walking.

There are many mountains in Yakushima.
You can try many many trails.
The reason that I chose Kuromidake was that it was rhododendrons season.
Of course, there are some trails, which we can see the rhododendrons, but some of them are too hard.

The rain didn’t so heavy.
Ma-chan’s policy is that not walking so fast.
So we walked slowly.
