The bath seen in the interior consists of the boiler of iron.

Because I do not heat and take out the hot spring which sprang out of the mountain in a state as is,
It is some low temperature, but it is natural and  I feel like soaking in an alms of the Nature.
It is important what to be a state of a feeling for a hot spring.

20090413-01.jpgThis is an "abacus".
It is a tool to calculate.KEISAN WO SURUTAMENO DOUGU DESUgoodhappy01.
In Japan, it is said "a reading and writing abacus" from old days,
Reading, writing it and the thing that I can calculate on an abacus,
I was considered to be basics of the education.
But as for it is an old story, and some now in time of the arithmetic of the primary schoolchild, learning it.
I cannot manage it unless I go to the abacus classroom personally.
That's why the person who can use the abacus in modern Japan is the minority.
Abacus in itself, there becomes little production year by year (SEISANGA SUKUNAKUNATTE IMASU)weep.


shineThis abacus flies over Japan and attracts attention abroadheart04.
There is an abacus classroom in U.S.A. and U.K., Thailand and Brazil,
Children learning an abacus seem to increase all over the worldhappy01.
soroban is becoming the international words with susi or origami.
Soroban could be publication  for British dictionary Webster.
earHave you heard it?


20090413-03.jpgThe abacus is told to Japan approximately 500 years ago by China,
It was improved afterwards to be easy to calculate in Japan.
I calculate with holding an abacus with the left hand (HIDARITE DE SOROBAN WO MOTTE)flairand flipping a ball with the finger of the right hand (MIGITE NO YUBI DE TAMA WO HAJIKU)flairas like the first photo.
If training advances, I get possible to calculate in a head even if there is not an abacus(ATAMANONAKA DE KEISAN DEKIRUYOU NI NARIMASU)happy01good .


A woman of my friend is good at a calculation(KEISAN GA TOKUIDESU)happy01, because she learned an abacus when she was a child. 
lovelyShe add various expenses and answer it by mental arithmetic by a calculation dividing by for number of people immediately,
when we go to a meal in great numbers and settle account, .
Such a case, useful! ! sign03flairI think so.
Incidentally...It is 253,648+5,589,416= ?
Even if give the suitable problem that wants to watch, what be elaborate, and answer immediately again is interesting(OMOSHIROI)bleahis.

She is right like a walking computerwink.


20090413-04.jpgSo that the abacus uses a finger-tip and a head at the same time,
It is said that a brain is activated if I continue using it.
I hate a Arithmetic and a calculation a weak point a little for me.
coldsweats02sweat01Because , I had a hard time very much when i was student,
... which I let children learn "an abacus", and is the eighth.
Is it good?  Is it notlate now?  I have to go abacus? !




←It is nothing to do with a abacus ...
The flower which bloomed in my garden,
It is a tulip and narcissus.
Spring is good.

Character lunch box!!

What did you think of this?

Did you think "What is this? NANJAKORYALa-"?
Well, it's an octopus-shaped sausage (TAKO SAN UINNA-) that all the Japanese know.
When I make this, I cuts sausage in half and makes a cut away several
portions and a foot opens when I bake it by a frying pan and
becomes the form that seems to be an octopus. KAWAII DESHO.happy01
I used the black sesame for lovely octopus eyes.eye

The lunch for the child cannot miss this octopus-shaped sausage(TAKO SAN UINNA-).
We don't usually make this when just eating it at home, FUTSUU HA TSUKURIMASEN.
but I think that there are many parents who will make it for a side dish of the child lunch box.
Because I am suitable character, WATASHI HA, TEKITOU NA SEIKAKUNANODE,
there are only 6 when I originally make the footfoot which should have eight of them.
When the person who is good at cooking makes it carefully,
a foot rolls it up(KURUNTO NARIMASU.) more and,
comes with a japanese twisted headband.(nejiri-hachimaki)

Though it is very shameful, HAZUKASHINAGARA,
this is the lunch box for my daughter with octopus shaped sausage(TAKO SAN) in.

In the preschool where my daughtervirgo of 4 years old goes to,
I have to make lunch box 2 times a week.
School lunch (KYUUSHOKU) will be provided other than it.
It depend on a preschool (YOUCHIEN NI YOTTE CHIGAIMASU.)
about the lunch time, mommy have to make lunch boxrestaurant
every day for kids, or kids get school lunch every day, it is various by a preschool.
(By the way, in the elementary school, we eat schoollunch(GAKKOU KYUUSHOKU)
for six years in all over Japan.)

A character lunch which is called "Chara ben" are popular now in Japan.

The one of mimicking with food, make the face of the famous TVtv animation character
or Disney's famous characters with food, and packing it into lunchbox lovelilyheart04.

For example, you can buy face of Winnie the Pooh shaped chicken nugget, or Hello Kitty shaped Cheese.
But, not only using such a ready-made article, cut the vegetables and ham into the shape, and the people who make chara-ben with oneself is increasing!! JIBUN DE TSUKURU HITO GA FUETEIMASU.up


There is the tool which is convenient for making the "Cara ben" making of in various ways.
I do not like play with food like this, I always think.think
"Isn't it too much?"(CHOTTO YARISUGI JANAI?)
That is why I have not made it yet.
However,(SHIKASHINAGARA) I asked my daughtervirgo of 4 years old
"Do you see many of your friends come with these character lunch box?"
It seems to be it in a considerable ratio somehow.
It is not the preschool where my daughter goes to, but there is some preschool dose,
put them on their HP titled  with "Today's Chara ben!!" 
And uploading a photographcamera of the shinegood looking lunch box.shine


In Japan, an insert, ORIKOMICHIRASHI
(I also say a handbill)
are in an arriving newspaper every morning.
In the yesterday's handbill,
how to make Chara ben appeared.
And a cooking bookbook was introduced, too.


← These are all edible lunch BENTOU.

Can you believe it?

In Japan, April is the season of the entrance to school.
This book is for a parent having the child, who entered a preschool,
"It's gonna be hard making a lunch box.
But I will do my best and make chara ben.DEMO GANBARUZO-!! rock"
And this lunch is for the child who does no eat much, mom want to see
the child is pleased with lunch with their favorite characterhappy02note
and hopefully they will eat more.restaurant

A child should be surely glad when I open a cover of the lunch, and an appetizing thing jumps into eyes.
Therefore I make "the octopus shaped sausage(TAKO SAN UINNA-) ", too and I also think to make the lunch to be colorfullart, use the food with color such as white, red, green, yellow, and the brown enters vividly.


← A cup and the pick to put a side dish of the lunch in are convenient.

By the way, TOKORODE,
it is about the preschool of my daughter,
other than the time when she have soup or curry rice with lunch at school, she can not bring a spoon and a fork restaurantto the preschool.
Most children use the chopsticks, when they become 4 years old.


Small chopsticks for children.

It is length of approximately 17 centimeters. leftright

You can improve how to use the chopsticks winkwhen you pick the good length chopsticks for your hand.paper

My little son enters a preschool (YOUCHIEN) at the same time my daughter becomes
6 years old, and to enter the elementary school.(SHOUGAKKOU)
...It means the making of my kids lunch continues for five more years, too.wobbly
The boom of "Cara ben" just began.
I will report how this boom escalates during these five years again.
