I am a native Japanese speaker teaching Japanese in a university somewhere on this planet. This blog is usually written in English, but sometimes Japanese and Chinese appear. Please don't care what you cannot read. They are for my students.
This morning I wanted to go to 1-6 morning market in the town of Niitsu. It has been a while since the I last time I went there. This blog has got many viewers to the pages about Ms. Yamashita’s Kimchi. But I hadn’t bought her Kimchi for several months now. Although I tried getting on a train at 9 a.m, I missed it. I thought I wouldn’t like to wait for the next train. So I walked to the town of Niitsu from my village. It was about two and half miles. It took 50 minutes or so.
On the way to Niitsu, I found that persimmon was now getting yellow.
1-6 means that the market is held on the date whose last digit is 1 or 6. Today is 26th of September. Most of the shops open only on morning hours (Yes, it’s “Morning Market”).
Once I bought seedlings of “Akita Butterbur” from this flower shop person. But I could not grow butterbur well. They were ruined.
I just want to know how many people have titled their blogs with the same words as I did here. But I am sure mine is a little late. In Japan, vaccination was started for elderly and medical personnel. I am not young by any means, but not old to be given priority for the vaccination. So I had to wait for the time when my age group is permitted to get the shot.
The photo is the building that is being used for the mass vaccination site. After I got it, though I wanted to get on a free shuttle bus, I could not find where the bus stop was. So I just walked to get back JR station.
There were many yachts floating on the river.
I was surprised that the water shuttle was still in operation amid this Corona pandemic. I had thought the company had got bankrupt already.
The river mouth was heading towards north into the sea.
