STOMACH!

On Thursday I took the examination of my stomach,because I felt slight pain.

I chose the Tokyo Bay Clinic because they use the up-to-date system;endoscope via nose.
It is said that the patients have less stress with that system than via mouth.
I could speak while the doctor was checking my stomach with endoscope!

The doctor told me the result right after the examination,and I knew I didn't have to worry about my stomach any more.
There was no ulcer , no cancer at all, no pylori that would be risk of cancer.
It was a good experience for me as a pharmacist, maybe...

The mogul courses were very nice because the staffs had renewed them a few days before.
I'm so tired but satisfied.

On Sunday we enjoyed skiing at Nozawa.
There is still much snow this year!
It was a beautiful day ,so we could see a lot of mountains clearly!
I was happy with many many funny friends.

Tonight we enjoyed the cherry blossoms picnic at Takada Park in Jouetsu.
There are many beautiful cherry trees and food shops.
It was my second cherry blossoms picnic, and I'm planning to have the third one at Nozawa!

The report from Switzerland

My friend in Switzerland reported the Swiss Championships of Mogul.
We can see many pictures here.
I'm happy to hear that he won the dual race.
I envy them because they had a great party after the competitons.
It looks very very enjoyable!!
A famous skier Ali seemed to take part in the competitions too.

bumps!

We took a long lunch time to ski.
It was very warm,and we didn't need the ski jackets anymore.
The number of bumps has increased at GALA ski resort.
We were happy with good jumps made by mogul staffs.


Today I'm a little tired because I practiced golf hard yesterday.
I want to practice golf today too,but I wouldn't be able to do because of tiredness.
I need to take a rest.

Debussy Debussy!

Now I'm practicing "Clair de lune"of Claude Debussy.
("Tsuki No Hikari" in Japanese)

I love this beautiful composition.
I decied to try this because the melody is nice and it isn't long!!
I don't like long music to play ,and long books to read....
I like easy and beautiful music to play! :-)

I'm really looking forward to having NHK Super Piano Lessons on May 16th.
This program often deals with good music with good teachers.

NAEBA



On Sunday the ski lesson of the Ski Association Of Saitama was held at Naeba Ski Resort.
The weather was not bad ,and we skied till 15:15p.m.
Our coach Secky taught us very kindly.
I could learn many many things ,and also enjoyed skiing and talking with people.
Now I'm suffering from the muscular pain.

The Little Prince

I'm trying to read "The Little Prince" in French with the textbook of NHK radio French.
("HOSHI NO OUJISAMA" in Japanese)
It will take a long time to read all of the stories, but in other words I'll be able to enjoy reading for a long time!

ODAIBA



On Sunday we took a boat from Takeshiba to Odaiba.
Mike and Katie were surprised with a small version of the Statue of Liberty.
We enjoyed the veiw and some Japanese food there.
After that,we moved to Harajuku to meet my friend Satomi,and had a happy tea time.
Yumi often takes me to many good restaurants!


We felt so sad when we said good-bye,and we couldn't stop crying.
I should go to San Francisco to meet them in the near future!


At Tokyo station I had a dinner with Satomi,and talked a lot.
I was really relaxed with her because she is always so kind and gentle.
We talked about many many things.


When I was in Tokyo,my husband got the first prize at the competition of Kawaba ski resort.
I was very happy to hear that ,though I couldn't support him.

KARAOKE!




After the cherry blossoms picnic,we moved to Tokyo station to drink more.
My friend Katie and her boyfriend Mike joined us.
I chose a Japanese style restaurant CHAPON near the station,since they wanted to go to IZAKAYA.
My friend Saho also came ,though he had just moved from Aichi prefecture.


After drinking,we went to KARAOKE.
Mike really enjoyed his first KARAOKE!!
My ski-coach Jun said "It is the best KARAOKE I've experienced!"

Cherry blossoms







On Saturday we had a cherry blossom-viewing picnic at Kinuta Park in Tokyo.
The weather was super nice,and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom!!
After drinking and eating,we enjoyed INDIAKA,a game like volleyball (??).
I cannot explain INDIAKA well,but it was so funny.
