Do it !

Recently, I've come to think that if I want to criticize someone, it's better to do it by myself. If I criticize someone, I felt bad and furthermore it didn't go better because they couldn't do it.
To spend time with criticizing somethings is waste of time..
To be on the side of people who always criticize someone or something or not is up to us.

For what studying ?

Recently, I read a book written by an attorney woman graduated first on the list of University of Tokyo.
As reading it, I felt strange because as far as her books, she study hard to get high rank score. I can't understand her basic idea.

For what does she study ?
People went to school because they want to know things they didn't know. From such view point, Score should not be the object.
Studying for a name or rank means nothing. It's waste of time.
If I have time, I want to use time for true study.Maybe for science favoring people like me can understand such way of thinking.
Knowing fantasic idea human being got to know is fascnating things, and for me, this is the most important thing for life.
But as far as I know, many of japanese people is like her, and such sense of value might be hard to change, I think.

To read books for lower cost

I read books mainly from public library by internet reservation system,
and sometimes buy books (mainly used books because there are many used bookstore aroud japan) or buy e-books  which are not sold in japan or are cheaper compared with translation version.

Internet services including internet  accessibility is very cheap & sufficient (for example my mobile phone with internet cost about 10 $ per month).
So if we memo titles of books which we had lent & read .we don't have to own books by myself. 

Of course, I want to buy books if these are mine, I can write down memo on books or fold down corner of pages. But for many ordinally people, there are limit of allowance for family so using public library services plus IT is very good way for book lover.

Before, we went to iga ninja village. And compared with iga, kouga is small, old, but there is real ninja house at kouga and this house is now "kouga ninja village".

This is inside the house.

At ninja house, ninja tour is doing every hour abot 30 min and including tour, entrance fee is 600 yen per adult and 300 yen per child.

It is near shigaraki and there is anthique shop which my wife likes, so we went there.

And then, we walked around shigaraki town where there are many porcelain shops.

Murin-an, Kyoto

We went murin-an, which I saw at keihan railway's brochure.

As always, we got off at sanjoy keihan station and walked around to the destination.

Ate lunch.

And this is a entrance of murin-an.

Murin-an is very good place to relax, because it is not so famous so not crowded and well-reserved. I liked this place.

Afterthat, we ate cakes at cafe.

There held demo against nuclear power station.
