Minaduki

There is a Japanese sweet called Minaduki in Kyoto. The confectionery is a base of a triangle-cut sweet rice jelly over which sweet red beans are spread. It had been eaten in June from old era in the meaning of beating the summer heat. It actually isn't cold and isn't resembled cold material, but it is interesting that somehow I can feel cool by it's looks.

Ghosts

I don't believe ghosts, but I think it is very interesting that there are people who have seen ghosts. In other words, we shouldn't declare that they are liars and we should respect them. Rather, we may understand human beings rather than ghosts by investigating what cause their such experiences.

Ebi-Mangetsu

There is a snack called "Ebi-Mangetsu". This is a white round potato starch cracker, included the shrimp and squid extract and baked and flied and then crusted salt. Shrimp pieces such as a small lawn shrimp are kneaded in it, and it gives a red color accent. It is good for simple taste, no forwardness like rice or wheat.

On rainy days 2

On rainy days, I go for a walk to the town at early dusk. It's because it is very beautiful that the neon signs of the buildings, the colors of the traffic lights, and the headlights and the tail lamps of many cars reflect on the obscure dark wet roads.

On rainy days

On rainy days, I chore the house in the morning, look at arts and crafts at a museum and then read books at a cafe in daytime, and go to a cinema at night. However, I actually do so even on sunny days. I am originally an indoors person, so weather is irrelevant.

Walking around towns

I like walking around towns that I've never visited, so it is also good for traveling abroad. I have no particular reason of that. I don't care to aware of the life of people or the value of its diversity. I just walk round the city aimlessly. Dusk is particularly great.

Dressing up pets

There may be an opinion that it is better to keep animals in nature, but in reality pets are separated from nature in the point that they are pets. There might be positive things with dressing pets up because they are under various mental or physical stresses in artificial environments.
