Yamasita Kiyoshi exhibition.

Have you been Yamasita Kiyoshi exhibition at Toyohashi City Museum of Art and History?
Last week, after this class, I look at it.
Why is his exhibit held in Toyohashi? He had stayed in Toyahashi for while, I thought. But it was my mistake. I understand it was held in Aichi Triennale 2016 by that flyer.
There is " Toyahashi Castle " in flyer. It was one of the later half works " Tohkaido 53 Tugi, fifty three stages " imitated Utagawa Hiroshige, 歌川広重. Then he also had not atayed here so long time.
Yamasita Kiyoshi was one of the most famous Japanese artists as a wonderer. But he had not drawn his works during his wondering life. After he came back home or the support home he drew his works with memories and impression, I heard. He had a little bit mental challenged. The motive of his wonderings were he got tired his support school life and an evasion, 忌避, of the soldior health check out. But he was caught and made him get the soldior health check out. Of couse, he was a failure.
But he usualy used the rank of soldior for his value judgment. He remembered them in menko; a game of slapping a paste boad cards. " What rank is in the soldiors?" This aws his favorite sating.
There were lots of works in that exhibition. But his works are not so big, becsuse his works are very detailed working.   Above all, there are lots of collages, 貼絵,"
" Nagaoka-no-Hanabi " is collage, too. That black night sky is influenced by Gogh, the Netherlands. I was surprised I knew it. The pen-and-ink drawings, too, That " The Eiffel tower in Paris " is a pen drawing with water colors. It 's very detailed, I think.
This exhibit finished last Sunday. I thought I interoduced it earlier. But I'm afraid I couldn't.
            Thank you.

Let me report again about Ecchu-Toyama trip over my expectation.
Do you know " Super Kamio Cande " ?
Our bus stopped by Michino-eki, " 宙ドーム神岡, Sky dome Kamioka " in Hida city, Gifu prefecture, for the rest. There is the replicaof " Super Kamio Cande."
In Kamioka, there had been a mine of zinc. At the remain of that, the research laboratory have built for catching the elementary particles, 素粒子, from the universe. That has many detectors, like a big electeic light bulb, in the water under ground big hole, called " Kamio Cande " by Tokyo University.
Dr. Koshiba, several years ago, attested the being of neutrino experimentally there. So he was awarded the Nobel pt\rize for physics.
After that,  Dr. Kajita group rebuilt it more and more bigger one, called " Super Kamio Cande." They attested that neutrino is having mass experimentally there. The year before last, Dr. Kajita was awarded the Nobel prize, too.
The two detectors, like a big electric light bulb, exhibits with the replica of " Super Kamio Cande," are very gigger than I thought. And I found on the white board Dr. Kajita's short statement. Then I don't know about neutrinoat all, but it could be cosely a little, I think.
That day, we stayed " Apa Hotel " in question. They out a book, " 本当の日本の歴史,”means " Truly Japan History," in each room, I heard. It has an argument that there was not massacre in Nanjing, 南京大虐殺, China and no solace women, 慰安婦, in Koria. So Chinese and Korean teams, made entries the Asia Winter Games, Sapporo, get angry with this. And they have boycotted Apa Hotel, Sapporo. I wanted to look at that book. but there was not that book in my room. In other room, matbe there was. I'm afraid I couldn't look at and read it.
That tour unexoectedly had many harvest for me.
                                                      Thank you.

The risky pension supply of Japanese people.

On August 27th, the investment accomplishment, 運用実績, of the public pension reserve fund, 公的年金積立金 ( account settlement, 決算 ) was reported from GPIF (年金積立金管理運用独立行政法人,)( I don't know what I say it in English.) They said it couln't report before the House of Councilors election, but we expeced it. We were surprised when we read the newspaper articles about it. It had suffered a lose of about 5.2 trillions yen ( 5 兆 2000 億円強 ) at the first quarter of this year. This is suited to the loss amount of last year. This is all the cause of Abenomics. The origin is the investment to the stock market our pension reserve fund rising the stock prices.
A critic sats this is Ahonomics, not Abenomics.
Many people concern about the revenue source shortage of the pension.
But GPIF says this does not have an infuluence of the pension supply amount. ( It't 50 trillions yen per year.) It is natural. Because they grasp the right of decision of pension premium and supply amount.
If they can afford to supply the pension, they should reduce the pension premium. because some people were no pension not to pay the pension premium that is very expensive for them.
And if they can afford, they should increase the pension supply amonut, not reduce. Because as they reduced it with Macro-economic-slide system, we, the pension union have sued them for a breach of the constitution. And if the revenue souce is shortage, they don't bear the responsibility for it. So we, Japanses people have to pay dealy for it. Similaly, our nursing insurance, if they don't their promise about the supply, our members say it's a fraud on the nation.
                                                 Thank you.

This tour of Toyama, 富山, I don't have much expectation. Because it was a pack tour but not so many participants and not so expensive. I only wanted to eat some good sea-food by Toyama-bay and hot spring bath in the snow.
Originally this tour has changed from Itoigawa, 糸魚川 tour in Nihgata pref. for little participant.
We left Toyahasi at 8:00 and toward to Toyama by way of GIfu pref. At Hida-Furukawa, 飛騨古川, that was our first visited town and had lunch. I found that town was able to expect exceedingly for me. Because, that toun had a modest event and a dashing festval called " Santera-mairi, 三寺参り " and " Okoshi-daiko, 起こし太鼓." Both of them, as the open days were diferent from our trip days, we couldn't look at them in person. and it was too short of staying there to watch the assembly hall of the festival. So I couldn't know how dashing Taiko festival Okoshi- daiko is. But I could feel in the snow that the romantic event, Santera-mairi, visiting three Buddist temples, Enkoh-ji, 円光寺, Honkoh-ji, 本光寺 and Shinshu-ji, 真宗寺. They are about 300 meters separate and the vertex of a triangle, and on January 15th, it's a traditional event to visit these three temples. That day, there are many gig snow statues and lining up candles alongside Seto-gawa river. Especiary, homecoming girls from the spinning mill at Shinshu, 信州, Nagano prefecture, visited " Santera-mairi," the girls having boyfriend with red candle and not getting one girls with white candle, of course, they, both of them, are dressing up. That was the chance of marriage to woman, I heard. That is how romantic charming thin in the snow, I thought.
                                                    Thank you.

In the evening, on Oct. 31st, "Pin Pon !"  Suddenly the chime of doorbell rang.
" Yee....s !"
Usually I have correspond to it after checking who it is. But then my wife was going to correspond to it at the gate for some unknown reason.
After a few ceconds, she said loudly, " They say trick or treat ! What shall I do ?"
She looked like to be confused. I was surprised and confused,too.
" How many children are there ?" I asked. She said, " A daughter of the house opposite and her friend."
We had nothing for the treat. It was the first experience for us. I don't know what and how much I should prepare for the treat.
My wife gave them a small bag of cheap cookys which was there instantly and said, " I'll promise you I'll prepare some thing good for the treat. So I hope you visit for the treat next year." Two children went home after saying thank you.
After about one hour, the mother of that child came my place in a harry. And said, " I'm very sorry, my child bothered you you with visited suddenly and coaxed you into giving treat. My daughter, Risa is very shy like not to greet neighbors. So I don't know she is able to do like that. Today, Risa said, " I went to my friend's home and enjoyed with a fancy dress. So I was feeling easy about her. I'm so sorry." Her mother had a return gift. Of course we refused that firmly. Mother is serious and busy with her child, I think.
Nxst day, my wife bought two boxes of candy to Risa and her friend for treat instead od next year. She received them getting tence beside her mother. She went back to be former changed from last niight.
We have enjoyed that happening and have been able to know our neighbor a little with that.
      Thank you.

  January 30th to 31st, Iwent to Ecchu-Toyama, 越中富山, Toyama prefecture, 富山県 takingpart in a bus tour. My wife said she couldn't believe that I would go to north area in winter. But I wanted to take a hot spring bath at north area in winter. I hoped the bath is in the snow. SoI had shorttime a little bit to write this report. I decided to write about Euglena that was plece d big advertisements in a newspaper, now.
Well, do you know Euglena ?
It's a flagellate, 鞭毛虫, that is a simple cell, having a flagellum and moving by it. So it's a called a unicellar animal. But it has also chloroplast, 葉緑体 and photosynthesizes that products starch from water and CO2, carbon dioxide with
sun light. So it is a unicellar plant, too.
Euglena was thought it was difficult to culture a large quantity of it. Recently, a student of a university, who took notice of having both nutrients of anomal and plant, has succeeded to culture a large quantity of it and industrialized.
According to the advertisments, Euglena has been cultured at Ishigaki-jima Island, Okinawa and the supplement, drink and cosmetics are made from it.
I think panacea,万能薬 are little effect but his way of looking and idea are wonderful. It is most important how to look at things. Idea and action power, too.
                       Thank you.

Study meeting tour in Nishimikawa area.

On Nov. 7th and 8th, I joined a study meeting tour in Okazaki and Nishio city ; the interaction tour of Chubu block of the National retired teachers union.
I have lived in Mikawa; the east area of Aichi prefecture, and worked here so long time. But I don't know so much about this area. There are many famous and important places in Japanese history of the modern period and the present day, especially Nishimikawa; west Mikawa area. So I wanted to study about them with this trip. The guides of our colleagues were great and wonderful, I thought. Certainly they were specialists in the history of this area. So we able to get the detail stories about them.
We had visited two temples and a ruin of a temple. First, I was surprised with a thick materials. One of them, Takisan-ji, 滝山寺 is true to its name; means a temple on a mountain with waterfall, from Sanmon, 山門; means the gate of the Buddhist
temple, to Hondoh, 本堂, the main building of the temple, it took several minutes by bus and from the parking space to Hondoh we had to climba steep slop for about 15minutes. In ancient times, the whole mountain was just a big temple, I thought. And right back of the temple, there iis the Takisanji Tohsho-guh, 東照宮 which is a shrine enshrined Tokugawa Ieyasu, 徳川家康. It was the third shrine built directly by Tokugawa Bakuhu, 幕府, the shogunate and next Kunoh-zan Tohshoguh, 久能山東照宮 and Nikko, 日光、Ibaragi prefecture,茨城県, After that, about 500 Toshoguh were built by each daimyo, 大名 feudal lords for control the whole country. It surprised me.
We stayed at Resot Hotel "Linx" one night and visited Iwase Bunko, 岩瀬文庫 and Aoi tea store in Nishio city. Iwase Bunko is a museum of library, I heard. Nishio area is famous of production of tea, especially ground green tea. Their 抹茶 was powdered by many electric millstornes. That surprised me again.
                                                   Thank you.

On dcember 13th, that Osprey Crashed on the shore of Okinawa. In Okinawa, they were doing what's imposible to train air-toair reflueling in their country, because it's very dengerous.
From the lookof the damage of it, it crashed not emergency landing. But when the US force said it was an emergency landing,  our Government and NHK say it was an  emergency landing, And now, they are constracting the helipats for Osprey in Takae, in Higashi-son, Okinawa.
the others, they say "the defeat" was "the end of the war," "the reveret" was "a battle after another" and now "the battle" is "an encounter" and they send our Self-Defence Forces to the South Sudan, Africa.
We should be careful of saying in differentwords. It is that they deceive the people and hide the fact under a cover.
Furthermore, the top of US force, Nicolson said the pilot was landing avoiding the town and didn't damage the residents and others. So he should be honored by his goodwill.  What does he think about Okinawa, Japan and the people. He must think them as an occupied area or a colony. He doesn't knew and doesn't want to know that the people make a living with danger and noise. I can't forgive his saying. And our Government too.
After 5 days, the US force has opened flying and training that couldn't be forgiven in the US. Our Government fas accepted with the words, like confirmation, understanding and evaluation. I can't understand them. Would they say the US-Japan Security Treaty is upper our constitution ?
The shore is very quiet and beautiful area like someone scatter a decreased person's ashes in the sea. There are remaind so many parts of crashed Ospry yet, I heard.
         Thank you.

The auditory sense told by Yoshie.

 投稿者:george  投稿日:2017年 1月28日(土)15時05分53秒
  (12/7)
last week, Yoshie told us about our sense of balance called " incline." (傾き)
But we might not understand about it, because we might not know about the struture of our ear and working. I, myself, forgot them. So I will tell you about them.
Our era has not only hearing but also sense of balance and movement.
" About hearing."   Sound is air vibrations. We gather them by the pinnaauricle, 耳殻. The air vibrations passed to the tympanum, 鼓膜, along outer ear.  And they enter the middle ear and spread three smallbones called tuchi, 槌 (hummer), kinuta, 砧 (hitted stand) and abumi, 鐙 (stirrup) bone.
After that, they go to the eddy tube of the inner ear. And a part of the base membrane is resonant with the vibrations of lymph in the eddy tube. As a result, the hearing cells, on the base membrane, vibrate and touch the cover membrane. and the excitmentof hearing cells go to the brain by the audientory nerves.
Next, about " our sense of balance " called " incline " told by Yoshie. We feel it at the vestibular organ, 前庭器官, in the inner ear. the feeling cells in the vestibular organ perceive the force of gravity with the cilium, 繊毛, on the cells with anditory sands. When our body leans to, the gravity changes. Then we feel it as an incline of our body. So the astronauts lose their sense of balance in the universe of zero gravity.
One more, about " movement."  We feel it with the three semicercular canals, 三半器官. They are on the vertically intersected surfaces with each other and filled up with lymph. When our body move, the lymph moves. Then the feeling cells at the base of semicircular canals, are perceived by it. As they three, we can feel every direction movements. If our body stops, the lymph stops too. But then, if the lymph doesn't stop, we feel dizzy. We know that auditory senses are influenced by the sense of sight and practices.
all feeling cells areinthe inner ear and the middle ear connected with ear pipe to open ajr. So it control air presure of the inside and outside of our ear.
and we have two eras tow eyes and tow nostrils.  " Why ?"  Because they were developed with our brain developed splitting into two sections, I heard.
                                                          Thank you.

The results also show that more people than in the previous survey go to bed 10 p.m. on weekday nights.
Meanwhile, about half the responents said they get up by 6:15 a.m. on weekdays. That's 15minutes earlier than before. And 20 percent of respondents said they start work before 8 a.m. on weekdays.
