Sunflower

The supermarket was selling sunflowers a while back, so I bought a few to decorate my apartment.

A Little Color

It’s been just over a week since I moved into the new apartment and now I think that it’s time to start making the place feel more like a home. I’m not exactly sure how long I will be staying here, so I’m a bit hesitant to splurge on furnishings that may be difficult to transport back to Nagoya or otherwise get rid of. So, as a result, I’ve been looking into ways to give mundane things another use. In this case, a plastic bottle turned vase, which can be put into the recycling bin when I leave.

Goodbye Fujieda

So, for the last couple of months, I had been working in Fujieda, Shizuoka. While yesterday was my last day, I’m not returning to Nagoya yet. Instead, I will now be working at two other branches in Shizuoka. That also meant another move (this time to a larger city).

Overhead

Darting from shady place to shady place is totally normal, right?

A Side Street in Mariko

Last weekend, a friend and I visited a traditional handcrafts center in the town of Mariko, Shizuoka. There was made some windchimes, had a nice lunch, and went for a short walk. This is the entrance to someone’s house, along with the traditional gutter system, which these days are usually covered with stone slabs or metal grates. I couldn’t help but feel like it’s very reminiscent of a scene out of a Ghibli movie.

Splash splash

Today was a good day to visit the beach, so I did. The sea got a bit choppy in the afternoon, which meant for some great waves, much to the kids’ delight.

A Moat

Shizuoka City, early May 2021. This moat once surrounded a castle, but now goes around some schools and a park.

Gardener’s Gonna Garden

I may not be allowed to plant anything in my borrowed room but I can still buy and have flowers, even if it means keeping them in PET bottles on the windowsill.
