#46 Tsuneda Beach

 

Diary
Nick took me to the beach today!   The water looked so nice, but it was very cold outside.   Nick told me that it’s a great place to swim and hang out during the summer.  Many people come to have barbecues, as well as swim.   This beach is especially great for swimming because the water is shallow and the sand is soft.   I hope to come to the beach a lot this summer!   -Ben-

#45 Kamate Suisen Park

Diary
Today, I visited the Kamate Suisen Park. I’ve never seen such a beautiful place in my whole life! I saw millions of daffodils along the coast. I learned that the daffodils were originally from Europe, but introduced to Kamate from China many years ago. Every year, the community plants and takes care of the flowers.  I loved visiting the park and smelling the wonderful flowers!  – Ben-

#44 Setsubun

 

Diary
Today, I learned about Setsubun. Setsubun occurs on the day before spring and is a day to remove evil spirits from their homes. To do this, families throw soybeans outside of their homes to hurt the evil spirits. While they do this, they chant “Oni wa soto, fuku wa uchi” which means “Oni out, happiness in!”. If they do this, they will have luck for the next year. Afterwards, the family members eat the beans, one for each year of their life. Setsubun is a very interesting holiday!  – Ben
