Location: Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan

I'm a university student and belong to karate circle in the university. I like sports very much. In my junior high school and high school days, I belonged to volleyball club, and track and field club. I enjoyed both of them, and now I like watching these sports on TV. I also like animals and have a dog and 7 Japanese killifish. I want to have a cat, too. However, my father don't like cats, and my dog, Rug, will chase the cat. So I will not be able to have any cat...

Aichi Expo

From this spring, Aichi Expo had been held and ended on last Sunday. I had been interested in it, so I went there with my sister on the last day of Expo. I was very excited because LOVE PSYCHEDELICO would join a party of grand finale.

On the day, I and my sister left home at 5:30 and took the 6:00 superexpress. There were already many people who were gonna go to Expo at Nagoya station, and train was very crowded. Though we got to Expo place at 8 o'clock, it took about an hour to get in the place. We went to a pavilion of Mitsubishi, "What if the moon didn't exist?"
If the moon didn't exist...
The earth rotates faster.The wind blows very hard. Creatures evolve more slowly and differently, and human don't exist.
I didn't know that the moon had big influence on the earth and creatures.
After that, though I didn't want to, we entered a haunted house because my sister strongly insisted. We were really scared...
We had Turkish hamburber and ice cream for lunch, but both of us were already tired. So we walked on a course which through a forest, and had a break there.
There were a lot of people, and they made long lines at each pavilion. Even after a break, we were still so tired that we didn't feel like waiting for a long time. Therefore, we just walked around and entered only a pavilion of Negara Burunei Darussalam which showed its nature and culture. After that, we saw the Earth tower and got on a observation wheelchair. It was getting dark, and a party of grand finale was comming, so we went to the park where the party would be held at. However, there were already so many people that the place we got to see the party was really far from the stage, maybe more than 200 meters far from it... In addition, LOVE PSYCHEDELICO didn't show up soon, so we waited for them standing for a long time.

We had intended to take the latest superexpress, but wanted to leave there by 8:15 not to miss the superexpress. However, they didn't show up even after 7:30. I was very uneasy.
It was 8 o'clock when they showed up. I was very excited, however we had to leave there after we listened to only three songs...
On the way to home, I was very tired and depressed, and after I came home, I could hardly do homework... However, the day was great day to me!!!

travel to Okinawa

As I wrote before, I was planning to travel to Okinawa with my friends. I was thinking to post about it in summer vacation, but I didn't. So I'll write about it this time.

I and my friends, Aya and Rika stayed there for 4 days. On the first day, we went to Shuri castle. We wore traditional clothes of Okinawa and took a picture in front of Shurei no mon that is discribed on a two thousand-yen bill.

On the second day, we visited many places by taxi. The driver was Aya's father's acquaintance and was so kind that we could enjoy the day very much. We went to Maeda headland, Ryukyu village, and Manzamou. View of the sea was great, so every time I saw the sea, I was excited even when I was in the taxi. After we had hamburgers and root beer for lunch at Jef, we went to Churaumi aquarium. I hadn't been to any aquarium for a long time, so I was very excited and took many pictures. There were three whale sharks. I was amazed to see them because they were really huge!!! After we went to the aquarium, we went to Nago pineapple park. We knew how pineapples grew there and ate pineapples until we were full.

We had great time on the day because he, the driver, were very familier with Okinawa and very kind to us. He took us to some places where we didn't know and didn't think that we could go. I thank him very much.

Next time, I'll write about other two days.
