Happy New Year!

I spent the new year's day in my hometown.
I have become used to the winter in Tokyo, but I feel the winter most, when I see the dark gray-colored sky, and feel the snow that contains a lot of humidity and the chilliness, like in Hokuriku.

In Japan it is said that there are twenty-four seasons. I would like to spend every day feeling each season.
Thank you for your continued help in this new year.

I went to Hawaii.
I watched a turtle basking in the sun, thinking that if I go far ahead from this North Shore in Oahu Island, I will eventually reach Japan. Surprisingly, it is said that there are evidences that people were present in the fifth century on this isolated island, which is located at least about 4000 kilo meters from the closest continent.

Cherry Blossoms

We were fortunate to have full-blown cherry blossoms when school enrollment ceremonies took place all over Tokyo. Even people in a big hurry would stop walking to take a look at cherry blossoms.

Telemark Ski

I tried telemark skiing for the first time!
I have been familiar with alpine skiing since I was little, but my old habits often made it difficult to telemark ski.
It is hard to challenge a new thing, but it was very refreshing and exciting to do so for the first time in a long time.

Setsubun and Demons

Setsubun is the day before the beginning of spring according to the lunisolar calendar. On the evening of this day, people in Japan open the doors of their houses and drive the demons (i.e., bad luck) out of their homes by throwing handfuls of beans. Demons have been regarded not only as bad beings but also as important, strong and "close-to-god" existences. I will try to maintain pleasant relations with them.

Auroras to be seen in Japan!?

There is a possibility that we may be able to see auroras in Japan from tomorrow to the day after tomorrow, generated by magnetic storms.
I have not seen auroras yet. I get excited just to think about how it would look like to me, as it is said that people would unconsciously see landscape through their hearts.

Flowing Cloud

I went to Mt. Iwo, the Yatsugadake mountain range.
Mt. Iwo is known for strong wind blowing on the top, and I felt it even harder in the winter.
Looking at a stream of gas going up and flowing over mountain tops, I also felt like there was no concept of time in the real world.
If it had not been as freezing as it was, I could have looked at it in wonder as long as I liked.

Getting ready for the winter

I recently climbed Mt. Jonen and Mt. Chogadake in Japan's Northern Alps. It's been so warm that there were only a few mountains with their peaks lightly covered with snow.

I was lucky enough to catch sight of grouses and ermines whose feathers were changing to snow-white color, and foxes who were hurrying here and there.

Winter was about to be there in a gentle pace.
