Rey (3 year old) made this today as our family portrait.

City of Human?


I don’t understand what is it trying to say. Japanese words means “city of human” as it is. What is it? Of course many cities around the world have been realized by humankind. However, livin’ in the city, as Stevie Wonder sang, sometimes it’s very hard to endure, and the billboard may say help each other though. It is hard to understand.

Brimming rain


Rain, rain, rain, all day. That’s enough. I want to see the sunshine.



It was rain all day. I can’t believe its Aug. 15th today. Every year this memorial day esjpecially for Japanese has been very hot so far as I remember. Where are hot, muggy summer days going? Flowers in the rain look very fine.

Cold Summer


It is reportedly very hot in Europe, while Tokyo has very chilly today. This extraordinary climate made Kai catch bronchitis. He seems quite bouncing with shouting loudly at someone, though I’m worrying about. This cooler temperature is good for J-league players, however. In Japan, soccer is not winter sports at all. It has emerged as summer sports when J-League (Japan’s professional soccer league) has launched in 1993. Didn’t FIFA try to stop? It can kill player, very dangerous to play football in Summer.

Komazawa Sky


My niece, my older son, my wife and I went to Komazawa Olympic Pool by car. It took more time comparing to bicycle riding, though. No CO2 and no parking fee if you got bicycle.

The more I tried to fix it, the more things were going worse, and my PC has totally broken down this morning. No output at all. Most of data have gone. This was the first of its kind for me and I didn’t find out whether it caused by virus. I headed for Akihabara with my older son and the broken PC soon after lunch, yes, world famous electrical shopping town in Tokyo. The customer service department of the store which I bought that PC from took 3 hrs to examine it and changed memory-module and harddisc-drive (new one is 20GB larger) for free because of the warranty period. It was really great, wasn’t it? During our visit “Akiba”, my son and I went to coffee shop and Apple store to play with high priced PC, it was very beautiful to see this site on G4. It made me so tired, however. My niece came home.

Evening pool


Rey, my older son.
In the evening my older son and I were in the Komazawa Olympic pool. Because of blowing a quite, I felt my upper half exposed in the air chill despite the water temperature was 28.5 ℃.

It was a muggy muggy day, today. My older son and I went to swimming pool in Komazawa Plympic Park. There were full of fathers and children crying out in joy. And soaking up with child seemed best way to cool down, I might say it was even a bit chilly. Summer days forever!
