Kids, who looks 6 years old or so, are shouting "Amazonis" at the crowded platform.

From where do they know the word?

Who is “Sato”?

I have no class today but went to the university to meet my group of The Study of English Education class.

We need to complete the assignment by next Wednesday due to prepare for the model teaching presentation.

The work we did today improved greatly, but I made the worst mistake in the world.

I called one of my friends "Sato", but his name is "Hoshino".

After he went to another class, the other group members asked me why I had called him "Sato".

It was unconscious!!

Of course I know he is "Hoshino" but......well....I was crazy at that time.

Whether he is Hoshino or Sato, he is a very good man.

.......So sorry. m(__)m


One of the advertisements in the train asks us what "23Ex" is.

And it also says to choose the best answer from the following three explanations.

A) 23歳に必要な大人の経験
(an adult experience which is required of those 23 years old)

B) 23時からのエキサイティングな気分
(an exciting feeling after 23:00)

C) 理想とする一週間の活動量
(23 exercise a week which is said to be ideal for keeping you healthy)

You'll choose, undoubtaly, the answer C because the first two answers are plain jokes. (^□^;)

But can you guess what advertisement this is?

Try to find this ad while you are in the train!!

Lax Discipline

A mother and two children are in front of me in Musashino-line now.

The children looks 3 or 4 years old, so they made much noise when they got on the train.

The mother saw their attitude and said,

"Be quiet, please. And sit down here."

The mother, surprisingly, led them sit on the floor.

Now they are so quiet but sitting on the floor.

Making noise or sitting on the floor......

Aren't both bad manners??( ̄〜 ̄;)

Nagoya Grampus win first title

Nagoya Grampus claimed the J-League title for the first time when they beat Shonan Bellmare 1-0 on yesterday, as nearest rivals Kashima Antlers ended their match with a scoreless draw. Nagoya's solo goal came from Japanese international striker Kenji Tamada, who headed home on a cross from Keita Sugimoto on the right wing in the 66th minute.

The Nagoya players and staff all exchanged hugs at the final whistle and Nagoya's coach Stojkovic was tossed into the air by his players.

Congratulations, Pixy!!

Rikiya's Birthday

November 11th, which is also "Pocky Day" in Japan, is Rikiya's birthday.

Happy birthday, Rikiya!!

And last night after the class, we had a birthday party for him.

He is two years younger than me, but he is much superior in all aspects.

Every student is respect for him.

He is earnest, sincere, wise, good at playing soccer, and has a cool face.

I think he is the elite of the elite.

So I was anxious for his reaction when he received my present.

Here is my present. know, I'm such a man.

Did he catch on to my joke??

A porky girl sitting in front of me is wearing a grey parka with a lot of small pig designs.

She's as she wears.

Left Behind?

Every Tuseday morning I found a weely Young Magazine between the wall and the bench at the monorail station.

Is it for anyone waiting for the train?

Heaven and Hell

Urawa Reds 2-0 Kyoto Sanga

November 14th is the holiday for Saitama prefecture, so we could celebrate this day with victory.

On the other hand, the opposite team Kyoto Sanga determined to be relegated to the second division.

The result left supporters dazed and the players drooped their heads.

Tears of despair ran down some of their faces.

When it comes to tears, I must tell you about ex-MVP midfielder Robson Ponte.

Because of his wonderful second goal in the 90th minute, Ponte was chosen MVP on this game.

After the game, he gave us an interview with tearful eyes.

He told that it would be the last 4 games for him to play as a member of Urawa Reds.

And he also told that he loved Urawa supporters.

As he talked with a mixture of joy for supporters and sorrow for leaving Reds soon, I couldn't help crying in sympathy.

Robby, I always support you.


We've just arrived at the stadium.

Before passing through the entrance gate, we dropped in the exhibition of Official Supporters Club, which shows us the history of Urawa Reds and supporters with some pictures.

Suprisingly I found my friends in one of the old photos.

Probably they were elementary school students, and they came as an event which their local soccer club produced.

I also went to Komaba Stadium at the same age as them.

I'm not a member of OSC but both my friends and I have been fascinated with our passionable soccer team.

We are Reds. (*^o^)/\(^-^*)

Reds vs Sanga

Today's match: Urawa Reds v.s. Kyoto Sanga FC.

I wish we will win this game!!

Bye later!!

Lay Judge Member


I'm chosen as a member of lay judge.

At first I need to submit a register form to decide whether or not I can do (Of course I do!), and if Saitama District Court assembles, I'll be able to participate in the trial during the next year.

I'm looking forward to doing it!!

Miso Can


Is it serious!?

Wednesday, November 10, 2010


The conversation between the two boys standing next to me in the train was like this.

【boy A】
I like airports.

【boy B】
Airports? Why?

【boy A】
Because...well, it's quite different from our daily lives. It seems to be unrealistic. I'm fascinated with that kind of places.

【boy B】
I quite agree with you in that regard.

They were 11 years old or so, and probably going to the zoo as a school event.


They are mature for their age!!!!

Recent children are horribly precocious...( ̄▽ ̄;)

Bocca della Verita

We went to Bambina Bambino (Italian restaurant) tonight.

At the entrance of the restaurant, I found you-know-what.

"Bocca della Verita (the Mouth of Truth)"

What we have to do when we find this object is to dip our hand into the mouth and pretend that our hand is grabbed by the object.

Of cource I did.


Give me back my hand!!
