2016.Sep.19-Sep.25 Autumnal Equinox Day 秋分の日

Sep.19(Mon.) Today is Respect-for-the-Aged-Day;it's a holiday. It's also Higaniri(the first day of the equinoctial week). In Japan, the equinoctial week are the days that people go visit graves.今日は敬老の日で祝日です。そして彼岸入りの為、台風の影響で雨でも私は墓参の為に鎌倉へ出掛けました。
Today it was raining because of the typhoon, but I went to Kamakura to visit my family grave. This is Kita-kamakura station. ここが北鎌倉駅です。


This is a manjyu(a bun with a bean-jam filling)shop. There is a crape myrtle plant in front of the shop. 私が知らない間にお饅頭屋さんが出来てました。お店前に百日紅(サルスベリ)の木


Sep.20(Tue.) I went for a pre-meeting today. From next month onwards, I will be supporting a family;they have a 4-year-old son. He will go to an English school, so I will pick him up from preschool then send him to the English school 4 days a week. I'm looking forward to seeing him next month.午前中に事前打ち合わせに出掛けました。来月からあるご家庭のサポートをします。4歳の男の子が保育園から英語教室に通うので、そのお手伝いです。来月が楽しみ💓


Sep.21(Wed.) I went for a Weforum(Women's Executive Forum) gathering at a Mediterranean restaurant at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Weフォーラムの集会です。11月に25周年の記念日の打合せも含めホテルのブッフェで美味しく愉しく。

Sep.22(Thu.) Today is Autumnal Equinox Day(which is also a holiday). Yes! There are two holidays this week. In Japan, people offer ohagi, bean cake, to the Buddha. Generally, ohagi is a sweet made with a sticky rice ball covered with red bean paste. Azuki beans(the main ingredient of the red bean paste) is believed to be able to drive unhappiness away. That is why we eat it on this day. 秋分の日 今週は祝日が2日ありました。秋分の日にはおはぎを仏さまに供えますね。あんこの材料小豆は不幸を遠ざける力が有ると信じられています。お彼岸におはぎを食べるのはこう言う理由からです! おはぎ大好き😍


Sep.23(Fri.) I went for a dental checkup. There is a cute decoration;it's called otsukimi(viewing the moon). 歯科に行ったら、とても可愛いお月見の御飾り。


Sep.24(Sat.)&25(Sun.) I've been watching sumo(wrestling) tournaments on TV for two weeks. Ozeki(champion)Goeido won a complete victory. Great shouts of joy arose from crowd when he won one game. This is because a Japanese sumo wrestler won a complete victory for the first time in 20 years. That was impressive. He was so emotional;tears fell from his small eyes. 15日間の相撲観戦も終盤です。今場所は20年振りに日本人力士が全勝で優勝し、一番ごとに大歓声と連日満席。大関豪栄道の小さな眼から涙が溢れたのが印象的でした。
