Facebook, Twitter, Google+.

Needless to say, these are major online SNS sites.

In addition to these, there are other big SNS sites in Japan. Mixi is an example.

There are so many SNS that I can’t easily keep track of them all.

Some friends mainly use Twitter and others mainly use Facebook.

When I have some things I want to share(photos, messages, quotes, etc) I have to post them to each site individually!

There are tools which enables you to post to multiple SNSs at the same time, though I still feel annoyed with the situation.

I wonder how other people handle these services.

How many times did I try to write my journal each day habitually?

I’ve been trying to grow accustomed to writing each day, but my brave challenge ended in failure each time I tried.

Recently, I tried to write my Japanese diary at first.

It’s not a journal, but it’s a private memorandum which is about daily events.

I think that if a man can’t write his journal in mother language habitually, he also cannot write a journal or diary in another language.

I’m using an online blog service and writing in my diary each day.

These articles can only seen by me because I write them in private mode.

Until now, I’ve continued writing in my diary for a month.

I also want to start writing in my English journal again too.

My friend will matriculate at a college in London, where she will enroll in an MBA program. She will go there this autumn, and she’ll stay there over a year. Last year, my other friend had also moved to London, and he is now working there with his wife. I don’t know why my friends go to that city one after another. Maybe some invisible fortune surrounds their network. Anyway, I hope she has a good time and makes good friends in London.

It’s summer time!

Hot days have been continuing in Japan, and this hot atmosphere makes me really sweat.

I have to change my shirt frequently.

So I bought some new T-shirts in this season.

This picture is one of them.


I’m sure you can see some characters are printed on the front of shrit.

These are characters of “ONE PIECE”, which is a famous Japanese MANGA and ANIME.


ONE PIECE is a really popular MANGA among Japanese young people.

The latest comic book had printed over three millions volumes.

This series is translated and printed in over 30 languages, so you might have read this series before.


I couldn’t have read recent comic books, but a few weeks ago I read them.

I love this T-shirt, of course!

Tokiwa park

Last month, I went to the Ube, Yamagchi prefecture, where my wife was born.

Yamaguchi prefecture is located at western part of Japan.

I went to Ube almost every year.

In that city, there is a beautiful place named “Tokiwa park”.

Tokiwa park has a large lake called “Tokiwa-ko”.

I took some photos and movies with my iPhone4.
Please check them if you have a minute.

World Cup

Now it’s the midst of World Cup!

Are you watching this largest sporting event in the world?

I’m watching television everyday to check the games.

I know there are various nationalities and everyone is cheering for their national team.

Sometimes this event invokes some troubles within disparate nations’ people, but I wish we would support our teams with gentle hearts and we’d talk about the game peacefully.

I often go shopping with my family.

A few weeks ago, I went shopping as usual, hearing that a new big super market had opened near my town.

I bought some house utensils and food as usual, took care of my child as usual and ate some ice cream with wife as usual.

The shopping ended as usual, except for a really beautiful sunset.

We headed up to the roof parking to load the things we bought, and accidentally saw this sunset.

It was really beautiful, the purple and blue sky was melted into one color, and the sunset red was fading out minute by minute.

It was a really wonderful time at an ordinary parking space.

I was also happy I saw this sunset with my family.

I had watched a recorded television program named “seismic situation of mass media” a few weeks ago.

As everyone knows, many newspaper companies in the U.S. have been going bankrupt yearly.

The same can be said for Japanese mass media.
According tostatical data, Japanese mass media companies are gradually losing both their profit and users.

Of course, this is influenced by internet media.
I’m now investigating this situation for personally.
