In Edo era, the unique mathematics（和算） that is developed in Japan was popular among ordinary people. They enjoyed it as a kind of hobby.
The book includes people's custom in those days and tells atmosphere of people's life.
The main target reader is younger adult, but many people can enjoy it. I recommend you to read it.

In the past, fisherman in Japan could catch a lot of sardine and it was very popular fish among ordinary people. But now it is not easy for people to catch it in their neighborhood.
I have heard that people can recently catch it in Onga-gawa river's mouth. So I tried to catch it last Saturday.
Finally I caught only one sardine but I was satisfied about the result because I got it for the first time in more than 20 years.
At the same time, I caught three gizzard shads.
I cooked the sardine for "sashimi" and the gizzard shads for "nanban-zuke".
