Computer drawing school for children

Today, we went to computer drawing school for kids by hirakata-city.
Such kid's course are hold by hirakata-city and we can find them at city's public paper so my wife ordered to joint the class.

This day, 9 jinior school children attended this class.



In this class, we used drawing software(cube kids) for kids and we made schene of urashima-taro, famous japanese old-story. It can handle animation so we can move some character. Our son loved this software very much.
(But it is is not free software. It costs about 20,000 yen!)

kakigori at hirakata

Last week, we went to hirakata-ice to eat kakigori by bicycle.
This shop is famous for hirakata's people so it is always crowded. This day was same as usual.

We arrived there about 4 PM.




We can select several color sherbet and we selected green-tee's one. Price is 300yen for each one. And we extra-ordered milk for 100 yen.
This shop's ice tastes crispy and big-volumn so we recomended it very much !

Good exercise is good for refreshing my brain

As writing here, sports is good for health. And today I strongly think so.

Recently I didn't run because I always walk about 10,000 steps a day and I think that it is enough.
But today, we took bicycle to hirakata-city and it was very good exercise for me. I sweated and feel relux after riding bicyle. I felt very satisfied and felt reflesh with my brain. It was a wonderful discovery for me.

Running 3 days a week is not good for me because I commute long-distance, but running with relux makes me feel happier, refreshing my brain so I want to restart my running !

Canyoning tour at higashi-omi city, shiga

Last Sunday,we did canyoning at shiga.
At first, I didn't know the word "canyoning" when my wife told me if we would do canyoning. My wife's friend found this tour and we decided to do it with her family.

This tour is held at oku-eigenji, higashi-oumi city, shiga prefecture.
Oku-eigenji erea is very beautiful place. It is quiet, not crowded, surrounded by nature, I liked this place very much.

Our family arrived the meeting place about 7:50(below).

It started about 9 AM and we took wet suit, been lectured then started.


We stopped our car near river and started walking.






This tour was starting here and our camera is not water-resist so I put this camera at this point.

It is about 1.5 hour round trip tour and we walked and swim along this river and reached water-fall place. At water fall place, we had jumped from the top of big rock to the water (about 5 m fall) and went behind water fall. It was very intersting tour. It was an rainy season so it seemd a little much water but it was OK.

After doing canyoing, we ate lunch at road station.


After that, we took a public bath and relux.
There was another story. At canyoning tour, leech was sticked to my son's leg and there were still bleeding. As I checked by internet, we found that hill pour special liquid which stopped blood clotting when they bite, that's why he was still bleeding. I had not experienced hill's bite so I and my son was surprised but it was intersting memory for us.

I was very tired but fun !

Just doing things is good

Just doing things is a simple and good method if we are in a thinking mode.
Sometimes I'm in a thinking mode at my desk, but it did not solve my tasks. So recently I strongly thinks that just doing jobs like mailing, telephone, action projects, writing documents, is better if I have a time to think.
If I do somethings and that makes our jobs going ahead, turning them to a good way, it's also fun for me.
And thinking like these things, I found this article saying same things.

In addition to it, finding these are very trivial things is important.
If I can find these are very easy things for me, I can be reluctant.

Anyway, if I felt speed of work declines, just doing things is better solution.

Golden week holiday, day 3 (6 May)

The last day, I got up 4:30 and we enjoyed relux morning time because we didn't have special event this day.
We enjoyed free of charge morning dishes.




Then moved to kutani pottery town.
I didn't know exactly about kutani-yaki but the porcelains are very beautiful so I liked them.



Then moved to sushi shop "sushi kuine" where my wife's friend recommended.
There are full of people and it tastes very good and price is resonable.
Lunch set is from 500 yen and we selected 800 yen one.
Ara soup is delicious.

Then moved to schience hills komatsu.
There are many family from outside of komatsu city. We enjoyed planetarium show, science show, etc.



And after a little visiting of komatsu airport, we went back to our home.
Eating dinner then arrived home about 22:00 PM.

The total driving distance is about 1000 km ! Total cost was about 70,000 yen including hotel, highway fee, gasorin, eating, etc, not so bad, cost-reasonable 3 day trip.
We enjoyed very much.



Golden week holiday, day 2 (5 May)

2nd day, I waked up at 3:30, same as yesterday. And left hotel about 4:20 am because we reserved special bus which was leaving at 6:50.



We arrived tateyama station about 5:50 and I was very surprised that parking station is full of cars !




This is tateyama to bijo-daira station, full of people at 6:00 am.



There are long waiting lane to get the thicket, but we reserved special bus (e sola bus) and there are special ticket window so we can easily get ticket by just saying reservation number, etc.


This is E SORA bus.

Top of the bus is transparent so we can see high-wall snow in the bus.




We arrived at murodou station where yuki-no ootani is there at 8:00 am.

It is not yuki-no ootani because the gate to yukino ootani is opened at 9:30.




The gate to yukino ootani is anounced open at 9:30 but actually opend at 8:30.


This is the highest point, amazing.





After sightseeing, we went down to the tateyama.
E sora bus is one way bus so at return trip, we took bus and changed to the train below.

We returned to the starting station.



Then to the shirakawa-go.


There are so many people there and almost all the house is for use of shop so I'm a little disapointed but it is good plalce.



We left shirakawa-go at 16:40 and arrived komatsu about 18:00.
