Fermented soybeans, which we call natto in Japanese, are healthy and useful food in Japan. People living in some area in Japan don’t like it. As my parents were born in the area, I hadn’t had natto at home. When I had natto at the first time at a hotel, I couldn’t adapt myself to the stringy food. Now natto is one of my dislike food.
I sometimes cook pasta with natto. I give soy a bit source to the pasta. It changes unexpected nice pasta.

Most of us are losers. We wish we are talented and have a rich life. However we notice soon that we are commonplace and never become winners.
We argue against winners that not all winners are happy. At the same time, we know we give up our dreams because we are short of money and in the course we forget what we want.
I’m between marriages, no kids and don’t have enough money. I’m a loser in life, probably.
Those were the day! We always say so and deny the present. When I was a child, I believed that my school background became a chance to get better life in future even even if my family was poor. Nowadays many Japanese believe it and study hard to enter in well-known university.
However many young people can’t get regular jobs and they are difficult for getting out of the poverty. The poor is quite hard to come from behind in life. They have to give up their dream even if they have unusual ability.
In Japan the poor can’t support theirselves. They can’t rent apartments and live in net cafe. Some of them lose home and settle in parks.
The others work so hard that they suffer from mental disorder. They have to quit their jobs. However nobody relieve them. Of course they can live on welfare but it is quite hard for the young. Indeed the young suicides are increasing.
The specialists report one of effective ways is to supply them houses. I am not rich but I think I can do something to help them. I don’t have any good ideas yet.
Yesterday I visited at Asakusa in Tokyo, Japan. The streets were congested with lots of tourists because of three holidays in a row.
Asakusa is famous for sweets too and I took part in a sweets tour yesterday. I enjoyed with the tour, but I had to put up with hay fever all day.
Today I hesitate if I go out. I like the spring but have to stand hay fever.
Flowers and blooms bloom a short time. We’d like to live a long time, but many elderly people are bedridden now. I’d like to drop dead. But I don’t want to repent on my deathbed.
I always have a smile on my face and gentle with people around me, this is my ideal future.
The following picture is my hometown. There stood old apartments in my childhood. The area has completely changed.
Recently a marked increase in the value of real property in Tokyo has been reported and many Japanese have started to invest lots of money in real property at estate agent’s insistence.
Increased real property will slip some day. But most of Japanese believe many people will live in Tokyo continuously. We can’t prophesy the future. I am anxious about property value in my own flats. How will their become in future?
This is pictures when I went to Ireland last year. It was my fourth visit and Dublin was the same as I imagined in mind.
I’m looking forward to going there again.
