It's warm this afternoon like a spring day.

Jan. 30th Wed. - Aston Villa

Today, I got a customer from England after a while.

I talked to him about football as always I do when I got one from Euro.

He said he supports Aston Villa.

I heard the team a few times and realized their popularity out there.

Business was not bad in the day but slow at a moment...

Jan. 25th Fri. ‐ Yellow Tail

It's a sunny and windy Friday afternoon.

I was listning English radio and they're talking about the fish "yellow tail".

I thought it's some kind of a tropical fish, but they are talking about traditional Japanese fish auction.

They don't sell tropical fishes at the auction.

Then I looked up and found out it's a familiar fish on our dinner table called "Buri or Hamachi" in Japanese.

Business goes slow as nomal.

Huku Otoko Race Movie


Jan. 10th Thur. ‐ Ebessan

It's the special day for the famous Nishinomiya Ebisu Shrine.

For some reason, they hold special religious fest 9-11 in January.

And 10th is the biggest.

They close the gate in the midnight of 9th and get rid of any prayers there.

They hold some special stuff in there(we don't know what it is) and open the gate at 6 o'clock in the 10th morning.

Thousands of people wait behind the gate and splash to run.

Then first 3 guys to reach the main building of the shrine are named to be so called "Huku Otoko" mean lucky guys.

I went this so called "Ebessan" shrine this morning with my kids.

I hope I brought a piece of "Huku (luckiness)" from there.

Jan. 7th Mon. - Stressed Out

It's a clear and beautiful afternoon.

I turned off the air conditioner and open the window after a while the freezing new year days.

But business doesn't go that way like this clear sky.

Things go bad way so far and I've been stressed out.

Jan. 5th Sat. - Dead New Year Days

This is the photo I took just at 5 o'clock in the evening.

This is the third shift of this year.

I haven't hoped or expected many rides and expected slow business but it's much slower than that...

You know, I bet that you shouldn't work new year days.

Jan. 4th Fri. ‐ New Year's Shift

A happy new year!

Anyway people fail but we gotta learn from those failures.
