This card game is called 'the hundred poems by one hundred poets'. It was found at my parents' house this new year's holidays. I remembered that I got it in my high school days, wow almost 20 years ago!

My wife and I decided to take it, because we thought it was good chance to remember one of Japanese traditional game.

So today, my daughter asked me to play it. She likely learned 'BOUZU(Bonze)-MEKURI' game at her kindergarten. She knew it very well.

To the north

I had business trip to the north this week, and it was first time to go there for me.

Snow scene was suddenly appeared, just after passing through the tunnel.

I had much learning and got to know some good fellows there. Maybe I have to be there next week...

Sight Fishing Practice; SFP

This was my second visit to SUSONO Fishing Park. Today's theme was to practice 'sight fishing'.

So I tied several flies which was visible in the water, according to book-san's advise.

Small green caterpillar pattern was effective.

I liked this handsome brookie.

Cream colored marabou pattern (sammy-san's pattern) worked well, especially for brownie. Maybe over 5 brown trout were caught by it.

I also succeeded in hooking ITOU trout with it! ITOU is famous as the largest species of Japanese trout in fresh water. But I missed him because of line break... It was pity though, I was so glad to hook him up today.

It was good sight fishing's training for me today. If I had another chance, I would like to catch ITOU trout next.

Perfect Day for Kite-flying

It was so beautiful sunny day today, so we went to SENBONHAMA seashore today.

Before that, we dropped in the port of NUMAZU to get fresh sea foods.

It was so windy also, but it helped us to fly a kite strongly. She was so excited to do that.

We thought this option of holiday, NUMAZU port and SENBONHAMA seashore, should be our weekly routine of this year.
