On October 10, I took part in "Eda-mame-gari"（枝豆狩り） at "Syousuke-mura"（正助村） in Munakata-city with my daughter. The "Eda-mame-gari" is not so popular like "Mikan-gari"（みかん狩り）, so this was my first experience. But, an accident happened before we got to "Syousuke-mura".
"Syousuke-mura" locates in countryside, so there aren't so many signals on its near roads, we can drive smoothly. On a straight part of a road, I drove my car over legal limits.
Suddenly, a police car appeared on my way. A police man stopped me. He said "you were speeding, 20km/h over, the fine is 15,000yen!!"
Of course, I regretted that I was speeding. But, I thought that I have to pay more attention to the speed during driving because recently I had a tendency to drive without considering legal limits.
People call this kind of patrol by police "nezumi-tori"（ネズミ捕り）, a mouse trap, in their slung.
"Eda-mame-gari" was very enjoyable. Its fee was 500yen, a staff gave us a 80cm-long rope and said "you can get as many stems with "eda-mame" as you can tie them with the rope. Finally, we got a lot of "eda-mame" that was worth more than 2,000yen in store' price.
The day's evening, my friend who loves fishing gave me a fish named "matou-dai"（マトウダイ） that he fished on the day. I processed it into "sashimi"（刺身） and ate it with "eda-mame" at dinner.
*But, two days later, I developed acute hepatitis and convalesced at home for four weeks.
