This half a year was a hard time for me, my father died, I suffered acute hepatitis, and my mother worsened her knee's condition. But, the operation on my mother's knee was success and I was relocated to a new section after "shin-nendo"(新年度) has started. Now, I expect that everything go well.

And I expect to get a lot of peas this spring.

a short trip in Kokura

a short trip in Kokura

My new office locates in Kokura area in the city of Kitakyushu. I walk to the office through some streets with roofs called "arcade"(アーケード) or "shouten-gai"(商店街). I can reach to the office without using an umbrella because of the roofs.

This time, I took several photos of the scenes that I can see on my way to my office. I hope you can enjoy "a short trip in Kokura" from them.

In Japan, many things starts on April first and they will end on March 31 of the next year. This term is called "nendo"(年度) in Japanese that is applied for school, accounting and workers relocation.

Relocation of workers is called "Jinji-idou"(人事異動) or "idou"(異動)in Japanese. "Idou" takes place in many companies and local governments in April in Japan.

Today was the first day for me to start a new job. I have started working as a staff to prevent the spread of infectious disease. For about three years, I worked for a very bored job, so I really hope that it will become a start of stimulus days.
