Long time no update.

Hi. Now I would like to share my story about what I've been doing lately.

Well, I hardly know where to start...

Actually I was seeing four doctors for five illnesses, but I get away with only two illnesses now. I think I'm getting better. Naturally I have to avoid exacerbation of those illnesses, so I still have to go back to those doctors for follow-up.

I took a sightseeing trip to Kanazawa this month, having been invited by my best friend mew.

We visited many noted places like the Kenrokuen Garde...Read more

Hope you all still remember me!

Dear All,

I just want to say thank you all for your kind words, and I apologize for being unable to visit to AnD in order to concentrate on treatment at this time. Now I have some mild illness, and I'm still under the doctor's watch. I have to visit to several hospitals every week, so

I just can't find time to use the Internet like I used to. That's going to continue for a while. :(

Chicken Sashimi

I had dinner at the restaurant in Osaka last evening.

The emergency number 110

Last Wednesday morning, I contacted a police station on my cell-phone for the first time. This is a truth that sounds like a lie!

On the way to work, a woman on a bicycle came over from a small alley, and was screaming for help, "Somebody ! Help me ! Please catch a purse snatcher !". She came out and spoke to me, "I had my bag snatched away on the road. Please call the police if you have a cell phone! Now!!". Needless to say, she is in panic mode. No one else is around...

My mind was foggy from lac...Read more

Nijo castle night time illumination

On Mar 31, I visited Nijo castle (二条城) to see night time illuminated cherry blossoms after work.

Night viewing of illuminated trees is popular among tourists and locals! I wanted to see cherry trees in full bloom, but I guess it was too early to visit there because the cherry blossoms hadn't bloomed beautifully.
