1. About japanese national pension status (1) 60 % of japanese people pay national pension, that means 40% people didn't pay. He said that this pension plan has already been over.(yukio noguchi also say same thing) Ratio of age over 65 year was 23% at year 2010, 26.6% at year 2015, and will be 38.4% at year 2065, that means 2 of 5 people are over 65 years old at year 2065 so 1.3 people support one person over 65 years old.Current pension plan was made when population was growing year by year and now this premise is broken so this pension plan is over.

Our son learns "song of kyoto street name", so we planed to go to Kyoto and walked along this street.(The song is like this)
This song is included in "Kyo-en sodefure" which our son danced with at his junior school's athletic meet, so we learn this song.
First place is "maru" which is maruta-machi, so we got off at jingu-marutamachi station at keihan.
At first, we bought lunchbox at supermarket and ate them alongside of kamo-river.
Then started walking to west.
When we met shirakawa street, then we changed direction to south to walk along shinmachi street.
(below is shinmachi street)
This song songs street names which are running east-west direction and shinmachi street go north-south direction, so there are small intersection and we took photo at each intersection.
First is "maru" which means marutamachi street and second is "take" which indicates takeyamachi street. Below is takeyamachi-shinmachi intersection.
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.
