Good-bye and Thank you!

Good Morning in many, many languages.


This weekend was Christmas.

Everybody were able to spend a warm Christmas? that would be good…

I wonder, if Santa brings the .wonderful presents through a gentle wind



(354th day of 2016)

["W Switch" ON !]

Today I had a first experience, when I sat in the bus going home.

By no means, the bus driver mistook the place where he

he normally should have turned. and went straight.

Confused he took the microphone and said: “No, it was wrong

” (゜▽゜●)/”

The moment, when I thought

I've taken the wrong bus,

I look around for a moment,

I was scared for a short duration.

There are such things like that…Probably, the bus driver thought about the side dishes of his dinner. “Today,Hamburger, Fried Chicken and Miso, what shall I do?”“Alright! I decide in the supermarket. If I enter the bonus, I will get excited…excited…"

Nice though, bus driver.

Thank you for the Waku-doki.

If it’d be me, I'd do more mistakes, but I don’t think, we need playful bus drivers like him.

Well, the start of a wonderful week!Let’s have a bowl of rice and tomorrow, we give our best!!

[After one second]

Since yesterday, the weather’s got a little warmer.

Today’s sky is calm, too and the temperature also rises.

Today I will roll out the batting cotton and torn cords, and remove all 12 buttons from the Noriboro N3B coat;

I repaired tears and fissures also by hand sewing, sewed the cord again and forgot my meal until all was repaired...

(゜ロ゜●;) ”

I didn’t eat a lot of meals today…

I ate a potato late in the night and then slept.

Thanks, potato. I will wear this to the rehearsal tomorrow!!

[2 seconds later…]

Today’s temperature is somewhat high…

Today, I felt refreshed after

I prepared my hair with clippers, scissors and thinning scissors before I went out.

After that, I had the mushroom hair like The Beatles.

If I don’t put anything on,

I am like an old man with beard and mushroom.

Afterwards I prepared miso soup before my departure, because I will come home late today.

The town has a lot of illuminations...

At the lottery counter in Shinbashi, it was a long queue.. .

What a mood at the end of the year.

Walking through the town and the rehearsal today, when I come back home, there is Miso…

Let’s give our best!!


(357th day of 2016)

[15 minutes later…scene…]

Old man with the mushroom and beard, to the passport center…faaaaaar awaaay!!!!

By the way, the photo in my passport until today is one from 10 years before…

With a yellow t-shirt, beard is bruce the photo looks like Bruce Lee with beard…beard Lee…

From now on, the Old-Man-with-Beard-and-Mushroom…. translates to Hijiki,,,why!

I found a cat with flowing hair today…

Today is also warm, so you can relax outside, right?

And the tattered collection, those 2 are sort of old, but it is a coat I bought in a second hand shop two or three years ago.

As I thought, I like those…

Today, it was a strong wind since afternoon, but it was a warm Thursday…


(358th day of 2016)

[Wow... there you are!!!!]

It is warm today…..

I went out in light clothes!!!

I arrived one and half hours earlier because I got the time wrong…. It will probably be dark by the time I come home….…..Finished….well….

We finished earlier than usual….

The sky looked amazing.

The slanting rays of sunset broke through the heavy clouds in the sky….that looked wonderful.

I bought pork, Kimchi, bean sprouts and tofu on the way home.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Kimchi-pork and Miso soup for my Christmas…?…..

I don’t feel like it is the end of the year. And I just noticed it was a national holiday today….

I hope everybody has a great weekend.

I am going to have Miso soup and a steamed meat bun that looks like a bean paste bun today.


(359th day of 2016)

[Good Bye, salty Water-Star!!!]

We had really beautiful weather today. The air seems to be cold and the temperature seems to be slightly lower than yesterday,

but we will have fine weather on Christmas Eve.

My single eyelid right eye became a triple eyelid this morning, because I was moved to tears by the NHK morning TV serial story….

I spent Christmas Eve with Miso soup and Kimchi-pork as I planned….

it made me warm deep inside…Tomorrow morning, wonderful Christmas gifts from Santa Claus will be delivered to the children by their bedside….Be good.

I hope you all have a sweet Christmas Eve.


(360th day of 2016)

Thank you and See you again…(On the day of Christmas, On the earth, for the second time this year, we had warm rain, colored like a rainbow. Merry Christmas. ]

Last night, 3 of the "WORKING WORLD" Blu-rays were delivered to me by Santa Claus.

I don’t know why, but one of them arrived late….but, they were delivered safely.I am glad to see that Miu chan and Ryosuke chan were excited for a Christmas cake yesterday at my parents house.(●´∀ ` )ノ”

I watched a Dutch movie for the first time, even though the only people from Holland that I know are soccer players Cruyff, Davids, Bergkamp and Sneijder.

The Japanese title is “孤独のススメ (Kodoku no susume) "MATTERHORN"

I was by myself in a dark room on Christmas....

at the end of the movie….my eyes were brimming over with tears. That was a quiet, warm, heartwarming, wonderful movie.

Because of that movie, I could have a warm Christmas. I am thankful.

And it will be the last Monday of this year tomorrow…

The time flies so quickly….

This week, again, thank you for your hard work.

I wonder if you had a warm Christmas as well.

These is the last Diary of this year.

Thank you so much for reading my long diaries through the end.

Thank you very much for everything you did during the past year.

May the rest of 2016 be filled with peace and warmth.

May the gentle wind softly blow into everyone’s heart...

It is going to be okay, it is going to be alright.

The wind has blown.

Let’s live for the rest of 2016 with warmth!! \(●´∀ `)ノ”

【Remember to keep kindness and a warm heart. May a smiling wind blow throughout the world.】【Once again this week, I hope the following week will be filled with warmth that follows your step into tomorrow….】

To the new week…

To the beginning of the new year of 2017.

Take care and keep yourself warm…..

Off we go!!
