Good Morning in many, many languages.


From Friday to Sunday, it got warm in the weekend.

Like always, the air in the morning and in the evening was cold.

My room, which is always cold like a freezer,

got warm around like a refrigerator with the warmth of the daytime.

It’s easier to live like this..

How’s everybody else?

I hope for a warm weekend.

Your name...( Reference to the Movie Title)


(23rd day of 2017)

[ Safe landing…what a relief…]

In the morning, I ate Dojima Rolls with strawberries and departed.

It was very very cold today, but the Monday’s weather was nice.

My pants and hat was completely like a cowboy.

I remember, that I watched the NHK show “Young riders” with my grandmother back then.

Anyway, I'd like to go out with a horse but I can’t do it so I go by bus and train.

Today I bought bread ¥ 700 and went back home this week is the “bread-week”

The new week starts warm!


(24th day of 2017)

[I am tired….floating]

The sun today shone and it was cold, but the sky was completely clear.

Today on my way home, I bought two bread filled with potatoes and Miso soup (Tofu and Udon)

It seems, that this menu will stay this week.

I guess, it will be a full bread week…



(25th day of 2017)

[ I saw that in a dream….?]

Good weather today!

In the evening, continuing from yesterday, it will be potato bread, Nugget, Tofu, Udon and Miso soup.

After 7pm, I got a call from my hometown, but there was a cute voice, it was a call from Ryousuke.

"Hey, I want to play a game…”

I share my DS with him…

But, when I watched him playing, I thought that he is very good.

I played Famicon and Super Famicon just a little bit, also I am not good at games, so I learned a lot from him.

Thanks Ryosuke.

[ But…]

I woke up this morning coughing and then a sound came out…

A strained back…


I can`t move…

I became walking like a zombie….

But I have to go ...

And then the zombie went to town... But I can’t walk fast ...

My upper body hurts by the vibration of the bus and train...

My face, when I was alone was expressionless, but because of the pain, my mind screamed in a big voice...

So the moment I got home, I was so relieved, I wanted to cry… (There was no time to relief with a strained back, but it was a moment, where I could say that.)

I groaned alone in my room, it was like a zoo..

Everyone, Take care to not have a cough and a strained back…



(27th day of 2017)

[There is a... scar on the wing... ]

I woke up at 4:00 am this morning. The wind was blowing in the morning and made the window in the bathroom rattle. The sky was all white, but the wind pushed the clouds away and called the sun and the blue sky back.

The temperature was supposed to rise to 15℃ this afternoon.

We had a windy Friday.

In the cold evening, I went to the pharmacy with warm clothes on and tried not to get blown away by the wind.

I bought painkillers and a poultice and I got through today with them. I had to be careful to not get a throb of pain run through my back on my way back home from the pharmacy. By the way, on the weekends in Shibuya, there are so many people around the Kawasaki station….

I couldn’t handle this...

I don’t like crowds…

I made my way through the crowds just like Lionel Messi’s dribbling.

Zombie (myself) tried to pretend to be calm, but I had a throb of pain run through my back twice

and I almost collapsed in the train. I pretended nothing happened, and I got home safely.

Hopefully, I will recover by tomorrow.

I hope everyone had a heart warming weekend.


(28th day of 2017)

[Sky… is so big…, Salty water...feels nice…, floating...]

We had a warm morning… like a fridge, maybe.The air felt warmer than usual, the sky was clear and the sun was shining.I still feel discomfort around my lower back, but it got much better.

I think my body had to work harder to recover because I did not rest enough.

In my case, It seems like I recover faster if I don’t stay in bed and rest….

I will totally recover after I eat meat….

It was really warm today. I hope everyone had a heart warming Saturday.


(29th day of 2017)


Today again, we had warm air on Sunday.

The snow might melt….

I don’t have much experience with skiing, but I can snowboard like a natural… Because I have been snowboarding since I was in high school….

A long time ago, one time, I went to the advanced course where nobody was going…

On a single-seated ski lift, there was more white fog as I went higher, and I couldn’t see anything…. I felt like only my ski lift was floating in the air.

In the calm white fog, I couldn’t even see my feet; I didn’t know the situation and where I was.

I was sitting down and climbed down very slowly, little by little…. How relieved I was at the moment when I went through the fog…

When I looked up the course which I came down from,

I couldn’t see anything and that was scary….

If there had been a cliff where I went….

I am sure nothing was going to happen like that, but…

The advanced snowboarders might be unafraid of danger…..

Now Zombie/Bearded old man (myself) knows the reason why nobody went on that course.….

Hey! Who is the Zombie/Bearded old man!!?....

Well, right, that is me…..

On Monday, I will be fully recovered from my lower back pain!

It is the start of a new week.

The temperature should rise up as high as 20℃ on Monday…

and….January is going by so fast.

Again, the last Monday of January,

and again with the new start of February,

may each day and each hour of the new week be filled with peace and warmth as usual...

May February’s warm wind blow softly into everyone's heart and warm everyone’s heart…

It is going to be okay,

it is going to be alright.

The wind has blown.

Let’s live!!...\(´∀`●)ノ”

【Remember to keep kindness and a warm heart. May a smiling wind blow throughout the world….】【May your week be filled with warmth that, with each step you take, will lead you into tomorrow….】

To the new week...

To the new month….

feel today’s wind…

Off we go!!
