A picture of Maiko
This part of a picture is drawn by my aunt and she often paints Maiko in Kyoto.
Personally I think that her paintings are, first of all, well composed and good balanced between the colors of background, kimono clothes and its belt. Plus, he successfully capture Maiko's motion of dancing and their expression accurately.
Her works are now exhibited at an art gallery in Ginza, Tokyo.

Takenoko, a bamboo shoot
A Takenoko, meaning a baby of bamboo in Japanese, is a bamboo shoot and also a typical delicious food only during spring season. Kyoto is also famous for its delicious Takenoko.
It is a shoot of bamboo and most of it is covered with the soil. Only the top of it is uncovered.
We cook them in a various way: they are fried as a tempura, boiled with rice, slightly tasted with dashi and soy sauce, and grilled.
They are very healthy: they contain a variety of vitamins, fiber and kalium.
By the way, note that they are need to be boiled as soon as possible after they are dug out. As time goes by, the dug bamboo shoot will turn bitter very soon. So we need to boil them to stop turning bitter.
The top of it, the uncovered part, usually tastes bitter and fortunately the bitter keep animals in the nature from eating it.

An old post box, April 1 theme day
I'm now writing at night on 1st, April and I decide to follow the British tradition that gerald england told me: the British tradition is that if I play my joke after midday then I am the fool.
This is an old post box in a museum in Japan and this is out of use. Now only a few old posts are left. This had been used for some decades years ago.
This post reminds me of good old days of the pre-email age and a song, "Please Mr. postman". For me, this also looks like time machine. I wish I could post letter to myself in school age and communicate with myself in my boyhood days by posting letters to this...
Many Daily Photo sites are participating in the 1st April theme, "A Public Mail Box", please use the links to below to visit them. Due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day.
