Kouke and Totte-Hiite-Tsuku

the old tree

The old tree behind me has been living there for more than 800 years. People call it the sacred tree in the shrine. Compared with him or her, how short the lives of us human beings are.

In the shrine there is the large lantern made of stone carved animals. It shows the Chinese zodiac: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and boar.

Practice karate in the park

Every Sunday morning I go to the nearby park in Osaka by bicycle. I practice karate and kobudo there with my friend who is 66 years old for about 90 minutes. The main purpose of our practice is for fitness in mind and body.

Suparinpe in 2012

Hey, last midnight did you hear Buddhist monks were striking the large bells in temples 108 times to solve 108 problems of human beings? If not, just perform the Kata named Suparinpe (= 108).
