The en of March, I took part in the trip of the pension unio. It was one night trip to Ishikawa prifecture. The inn was 龍泉閣, Ryuusenkaku, in 辰口温泉,Tatunokuchi hotspring that is called an annex to 金沢市,Kanazawa city.
The pension union is, as you know, an Organizatio of a whole country for the pensioners. It was formed for getting more pension and joining in hobby group. I have joined the trip, the cooking class for men and one coin theater that is a kind of party for watching movies and one coin mans one hundred-yen coin.
Ryuusenkaku inn Tatunokuchi hot spring is famous for the biggest mixed bathing hot spring in Japan, I heard. But we needed to wear, a simple cloth. It's a little bit unfortunate for me, as there are no cloth mixed hot spring in 東北地方, Touhoku area in Japan, (north-east aria,) and Europe.
The mixed bath wearing bathing suit is not so rarity, as the bubble bath, side of our swimming pool of Axtos that we make use every other day, is also mixed bath wearing swiming suit.
In that trip, we visited the museum of 北前船,Kitamae-bune, and I was able to understand of the origin of a word, " まとも,真面 " matomo, means 真艫. Kitamae-bune is a big merchant ship that goes to 北海道, Hokkaido and come back to Ohsaka by way of 北前, Kitamae, 北陸地方, Hokuriku aria from the latter half Edo period to Meiji period. They got a benefiy of about Ⅰ億円,￥100,000,000.- (present value) by one navigation.
Kitamae^bune is a big saling ship with one mast and one sail, no oarsman. And we call the top of ship is 舳先, Hesaki, bow and the end is 艫, Tomo, stern. And the right behind wind is the best wind. So the right wind is called " Matomo-no(na)-kaze,真艫の風."
