1-26-11 Tsurugaoka, Nobeoka
Someone referred to the figure next to our Ahner Eikaiwa Sign as an "extraterrestrial".
I said it might be a "Kappa," or a mythical creature from an old wives'
We discussed the name of a shop in Nobeoka called, "Eve." I mentioned that
the owner didn't know the story of Adam and Eve. And, she really didn't know why she named her store that.
We talked about WaiWai Television. I asked, "Why Why" does it cost over
4,000 Yen a month to use the service.
We talked about how "W.C." stands for water closet, an English term for
toilet, or bathroom as we say in America. I also mentioned that I had once walked into the rest area of Poka Poka Onsen with
some W.C. slippers still on my feet.
I mentioned that I tasted some monju from the Tokyo area that had cherry
blossom petals inside of each one.
Takao mentioned that the phrase, "Nature calls me," means that one needs
to use the restroom. I mentioned that some women say, "I'm going to visit the sandbox." And, some men say, "I'm going to shake
the dew off my lily."
We also talked about how there is a German contest for housewives where
the housewives compete to see who can throw a roller pin the farthest.
One of us has a birthday that is the same day that the creator of Astro
Boy or Atom, Tezuka Osamu, died.
Halloween in Kawashima, Nobeoka Mai, the teacher of the day... Miyuki Chi
Chiyo Okubo Ms. Yoshioka Minna Isshou! Janai? Nobeoka Sand Homeward Bound to Nobeoka I hope these notes on Nobeoka and Japan
don't offend anyone. Kerry was here! Did you get a chance to talk to him? Howard's Other Homepages These pictures were taken
by Shigetoshi. Ichimiya. This used to be where the Marusei Bookstore building was, but not anymore. Right On is a clothing
chain store. I don't think it has much of a chance to stay open in Nobeoka. View from the third floor of the old Peare, Nobeoka...2004
Howard in front of Max Value, Nobeoka. Hyuga City has pretty manholes. Are you looking for an English teacher? I went to the
Nobeoka firework show on my Honda Cub. It was easy to find a parking space. How nice it would be to be a junior high school
student once again. Keiko Ahner teaches English at Peare and Midorigaoka Elementary. This what I emember about arriving in
Nobeoka the first time. Nobeoka Bust I thought I might like to move to Urashiro, but my wife let me know that it was out of
the question. I could be proud living in this house. Well, I picked them out of the Igai River, and I raised them from babies.
I don't know which makes me feel better, a walk in the mountains or a long walk on a beach. I didn't draw these. I want to
be clear about that. Sometimes I ride my Honda Cub through the mountains without wearing a helmet. Some people might call
me a lucky man. "Attention! You are now entering civilization. Put on your gas mask, please." The Fire Dept. Says, "No fires
anywhere in Japan." But, it's really on a case by case basis. I hope we don't have a fire in the Kami Igata neighborhood.
When are the economic conditions of Nobeoka going to improve? How would you like to have smoke roll into your bedroom every
morning and evening? This is a wonderful statue in Kadogawa. This statue is looking out over the Kadogawa Bay. Who is he?
Have you seen "Stoneheng" in Kami Igata? She stole a kiss. This is my trusty old Honda Cub. I enjoy every hour I spend in
Kitaura, Nobeoka. I once saw a figure of an owl on a house in Newport Beach. So, I wanted to display this one here. Who's
the leader of the band that's made for you and me...?" Old Friends Ahner Nobeoka Link Happier Days on Nagahama Beach, Nobeoka
