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 has a large lake called “Tokiwa-ko”.
