俳句は5文字 7文字 5文字の 17文字で構成されていて、世界で一番短い詩とも言われています。



このままで ずっとこのまま さくらばな

あっというまに 散ってしまう桜の花 出来るならずーときれいで咲いていてほしいけれど、

I went to a shrine during the New Year's vacation. Hatsumode means New Year's visit to shrines. I prayed for happiness and good health for my family.

And I bought a arrow of charm against evil called "Hama- ya"and drew a paper fortune.

The fortune said that I'll have excellent luck.

Autunum leaves at Rikugien

I went to Rikugien to enjoy autumn colors. The dark in Rikugien are illuminated during the season. Autumn colors of the night was very fantastic and beautiful. With its fantastic atomosphere, the event is especially popular with women. I did wonders for my mind.
I have checked out Rikugien.
Rikugien Garden (六義園, Rikugien) is a Tokyo metropolitan park in the Bunkyo area. The name of the park is composed of kanji that can be easily misread as Rokugien. The name itself comes from the idea of the six elements in waka poetry. The park is composed of a small pond, trees and a hill. The traditional Japanese garden in the park is a tourist attraction.

November 15th is the day of the Seven-five-three festival in Japan. This is a traditional Japanese event to celebrate children's growth and pray for their future health and well-being. This traditional passed to the samurai class who added a number of rituals. Seven,five, or three year-old children are beautifully dressed in traditional Japanese kimono and taken to a shrine.

I would like to explain why "Seven-five-three ".

Children who up until the age of three were required by custom to have shave heads were allowed to grow out their hair.

Boys of age five could wear hakama for the first time.

Girls of age seven replaced the simple cords they used to tie their kimono with the traditional obi.

Nagano Shinkansen

I went to Sakudaira by Nagano Shinkansen. This train is named "Asama". It takes about 1 hour and half from Tokyo to Sakudaira. Asama ran at a maximum speed of 260km/h. Asama ride very well.

I have an old cottege in Takeshina-kogen. I got off the Sakudaira station and rend a car. And then I drove to spend a few days at my old cottege.

I visited to a farm and a waterfall named Otome-daki (means maiden waterfall).
