> 日本2005年山の会1愛媛 138 Originally uploaded by Ryuugakusei. 二週間前に善通寺山の会と一緒に高知県にある山、カマガ森を登る事になりました。木・金曜日ちょうさ祭りを二日間をしとて、サッカー試合が土曜にあって、その日曜日は山を登って。。。   当然に月曜日は風邪に捕まった。:b About 2 weekends ago, I climbed up a mountain known as Kamegamori in Kochi prefecture. That week, I carried/pushed the 1500 kilo portable shrine around the town on Thursday and Friday, partook in a Soccer game on Saturday, and then climbed the mountain on Sunday… It was only natural that I ended […]

> 日本2005年財田秋祭り2 091 Originally uploaded by Ryuugakusei. Last weekend I partook in the local Autumn Festival. One of charming elements is that the men in each locality (I live in a town, which will soon become part of a city, but for the time being the town is divided up into 7 `neighborhoods`) get to spend two days in a […]

> 日本2005年財田秋祭り 023 Originally uploaded by Ryuugakusei. 今週が財田祭りだった。カナダでの祭りとは結構違いがあった。カナダでのパレードは、ディスプレイを自動に動けるように車の上に置きます。日本では、車を使わずに、三十人男性が太鼓だいを運ばなければならない。体中が今日疲れているが、本当に楽しかった二日間が過ごせました。  This week we had the local Saita (town’s name) Festival. Japanese and Canadian parades are quite different. The parade floats in Canada are usually placed onto a motorized truck base, and people walk around or ride on them. Floats in Japan are instead carried/pushed (alternatively) by large teams of 30 people. I’m completely […]

> 日本2005年琴平金毘羅三3 144 Originally uploaded by Ryuugakusei. 先週末は香川県三豊郡仁尾町での人形祭りを見に行きました。普段は伝統的な大変お金かかったそうの人形だった。急に目にかかったのはこのディスプレイだった。小学生が使ったそうですが、面白い色をつけて、良く出来たと思った。   I drove through Nio last weekend, where they were having their annual Doll Festival. The majority of them consisted of ridiculously expensive animatronic adventure scenes, but this particlar display caught my eye. It was made by early-elementary school students, but I think they did a great job.

> 日本2005年財田町町民運動会 056 Originally uploaded by Ryuugakusei. I don’t remember having to have had to do this while I was in junior highschool~ All of the 78 males of the Jr. HS that I teach part-time at had to partake in human pyramids. Lots of fun… (Except for the two students who injured themselves a week earlier during this exact […]

> 日本2005年財田町町民運動会 064 Originally uploaded by Ryuugakusei. Here’s a photo with my new Kendo team. Let’s see how my progress goes. I’d already developed three blisters just from the first practice. It’s intense, but a great sport to learn.

This is one of the huuuuuuuuge freaky spiders that reside in the neighboring bamboo forest, and like to come for a stroll across the rice patties and somehow find their way into my house… (I still can’t figure out how/where they can get in… being so freakin’ huuuge.) Anyways, this little fellow accidentally […]
