Carp-shaped Streamers over a River こいのぼり・川の上

In Japan, May 5th is children's Day.It is a national holiday.
We wish for the health and happiness of all children.
In May, you can see carp-shaped streamers flying over rivers all over Japan.
This tradition started at the beginning of the 1970s and is still widespread throughout Japan.
By the way, there is a famous maker of carp-shaped streamers in Wake town, Okayama prefecture called 'Tokunaga koinobori': 徳永こいのぼり.
The company produces 95% of the carp streamers.
I saw many "carp streamers" flowing across the river.
They looked very beautiful
I hope the children grow up well.

the Railroad Museum

There is the Railroad Educational Museum in Tsuyama City where I live.
The Museum is near Tsuyama Station.
The Museum was opened in April 2016, and features various exhibits on modern railroads with a focus on trains.
・ Old Fan-shaped Locomotive Depot
The JR Tsuyama station fan-shaped locomotive depot is the second largest in Japan.
The depot is for steam locomotives.
The depot is constructed in the shape of a fan around the railroad turntable.
There are 13 locomotives including the model D51 steam locomotive that was built in 1936.
In addition, there are four other rooms.
・ History room - Here, the history of the railroad is displayed.
・ Mechanics Room - Techniques and devices for safe and comfortable operation are shown.
・ Town room - Tsuyama's townscape is reproduced in the exhibition.
The clerk showed the visitors a running model train.
・ Education room - These are the facilities where the orientation is presented.
In the corner there is a gift shop that sold souvenirs.
I walked around, here and there, for an hour.
When I saw a model D51 steam locomotive which is no longer in use, I was touched by the force of it.

Carp-shaped Streamers

Hello everyone.
I'd like to talk about carp-shaped streamers: こいのぼり.

In Japan, May 5th is children's Day.
It is a national holiday.
We wish for the health and happiness of all children.
Families with young boys celebrate this holiday with special customs.
They display carp-shaped streamers outside.
There are special sweets eaten on this day: KASHIWAMOCHI, such as rice cakes wrapped in oak leaves.

In May, you can see carp-shaped streamers flying across rivers all over Japan.
This tradition started at the beginning of the 1970s and is still widespread throughout Japan.

By the way, there is a famous maker of carp-shaped streamers in Wake town, Okayama prefecture called 'Tokunaga koinobori': 徳永こいのぼり.
The company produces 95% of the carp streamers.

I saw many "carp streamers" flowing across the river.
They looked very beautiful
I hope the children grow up well.

Thank you.

Wildflowers on my Walking Route

Hello everyone.
I'd like to talk about wildflowers on my walking route.
On fine days, my wife and I sometimes go walking around the neighborhood.
We go out of my house.
Right there, there is a rice field in the hills .
We walk on the side of the rice field.
Currently, in the rice field, lotus flowers are in full bloom and it is very beautiful.
So one day in fine weather I went out with my digital camera.
Along the road, various wild flowers were blooming.
I shot some wild flowers.
I found a four-leaf clover accidentally then.
 Dandelion
 Violet
 Lamium purpureum
 Vicia hirsuta
 Horsetail
 Lotus grass
 Clover
I usually overlook it, but if you look closely there are beautiful flowers.
I felt the arrival of a full-blown spring.
Thank you.

Cherry Blossom Viewing in Shinjo

Hello everyone.
I'd like to talk about cherry blossom viewing in Shinjo.
On April 16th(2019), my wife and I went cherry blossom viewing in Shinjo village, Okayama prefecture with my relatives.
It took one hour to get there by car.
We parked in a parking lot and crossed the bridge.
There was a row of cherry blossom trees.
These cherry trees were planted about 100 years ago.
There were 132 trees planted on both sides of the road.
This row of cherry trees was 400 meters long.
It is said that the middle of April is the best time of the year for viewing cherry blossoms.
At the side of the road, there were several stalls selling products and souvenirs from the area.
We walked on, viewing the cherry blossoms and several stalls in the long cherry blossom tunnel.
We spent one and a half hours and we had a wonderful time.
Thank you.

Cherry Blossom in my Garden

Hello, everyone.
I'd like to talk about the cherry blossom in my garden.

There is a cherry tree in my garden.
I planted it 28 years ago.
This year, it started blooming on March 28th and after one week it was in full blossom.

When I planted it, the tree was a thin trunk at a height of about 1 meter.
It gets bigger little by little every year.
A shadow appeared in the flower bed from this tree.
Shadows have a bad effect on plants.
Because of that, I prune the tree every year.
Therefore, the tree is currently about 5 meters high.

It is bright in the garden with the full cherry blossom.
For a while, neighbors stopped to watch the blossom.
Beautiful blossom make people feel better.
Forever and ever, the tree will bloom beautiful blossom.
Thank you.
