Local festival: Cleaning of shrine on Oct 7. Mots san and his daughter, Mari san arriving yuge from Kobe last night, joined the cleaning, too. Pre ceremony on Oct 8, and festival on Oct 9. I had a role staying at shrine in half day during festival. Shrine is in the forest and has no sound except for small sounds of cymbal and drum from festival procession outside. I had a relaxed time for a while.
Mari san:She helped us by painting wall of Radio museum and having nice counversation with many visitors. She tried to make small dish at wood craft club.
Dave and Mika san:We had dinner together and enjoyed talking for all this time. After dinner, we were laughing at short movie “how to eat sushi” on youtube.
Pat and Shinobu:They stopped over at our house in yuge on their Shikoku trip from Shizuoka. Mots san got acquainted with Pat through someone’s blog site, but we met for the first time. They told me many tips of farming. They give most of their harvest to their friend, and only cabbage and corn are sold. They sell corn for 300yen each and they are sold out quickly! I realized they are highly-skilled kitchen gardener and enjoy it from the heart.
Sea firefly:From end of August, you can see blue blink on the edge of the surf at the beach in front ouf our house. They are firefly. I didn’t notice that they are still there in middle of autumn. Mots san often dive and swim with blue light by alone. He picked up big oyster in the ocean last night. He could finally get company swimming together. Mari san, Pat and Shinobu san enjoyed electrical parade in the ocean with him.
