I'll Move...

I decided to close this blog.
It doesn't mean I completely stop writing things in English though... I change the place I write English entries.

My new blog in English has Japanese entries too, for it's more natural to write things in Japamese.
Moreover, I realized that I neither have enough English skills nor knowledge about Japan to provide infos about Japan all in English---so now I can just compose about my daily life.
I improve my English and enrich my knowledge by writing many simple entries...


I've written things officialy in Eigo-Town since May, with my real name and photo.
It features some English-learning people (in Japan and overseas) as contracted writers, and now I'm also the one of them.

Accordning to the contracts, I should, rather I have to update the blog Eigo-Town provides me at least four times a week. They say it's ideal to update it every day, and prohibits uploading more than two entries for the same day.

Quiet Holidays


Between 4/29 and 5/7 many Japanese enjoy outing, as this period is called "Golden Week".
I'm not quite sure why it was named so, but I understand it is the most comfortable season with mild climate and young leaves.

But this year, I had a quiet "Golden Week", with only one outing to Oarai Aquarium on May 4.
My children had school on 5/1 and 5/2, my daughters had ballet lessons even in Holidays, and my son and younger daughter got sick and had to stay at home...

Web Site Renewal


I finally did it...

My new web site is about aquarium.
Since last year I had only cold water fish, such as goldfish and medaka, but this year, I've started guppies and a male beta!

This is my brand-new guppy aquarium:

A New Web Site and Blog

Now I'm planning to construct a web site about aquarium, in English and Japanese.
I've just started a new blog about aquarium in Japanese, which I want to make like a forum for aquarists in Japan.

I'm going to syndicate some entries with it.
