28th Oct. Water Supply 水道だぞ 

Water Supply
10月28日 水道だぞ

The tap water in my house has been leaking for 6 mouths. Because the total amount of its bill doesn’t change, I didn’t care about it. It was just noisy. Yet the latest bill was very expensive (usually it costs US$ 45, this time US$ 90) so I asked my landlord, a board of education, to fix it.
 He said “You can do it yourself; I’ll send you a part”
 Today, I did it myself. It took me 15 minutes, it’s like fixing flat tire. The rubber packing was degraded.

Our nearest high-way interchange has changed its name from Toyoshina I.C to Azumino I.C.

On the way to Takayama village, I visited Suzaka city and Garyu-park.

This time, I came here to see beautiful colored leaves.

These are all of my photo I took in Takayama village. You should access below!

After the colored leaves viewing, I went to a hot spring. This is the main building and is very old fashioned. I like it very much.

On the way back, I visited Ohsho restaurant in Nagano city but there is no Kotekote noodles, my favorite menu in Osaka Ohsho. Maybe because here is Nagano…Oh man!

20th Oct. Ohsho 王将だぞ

10月20日 王将だぞ

In the morning, I made rice with rice cooker. Mr. Namiki gave it to me. First I didn’t know how to use it because I had been making rice with a pan since I started Tongan life in 2009. Finally I managed to remember the way. Just push the function button.

Around 2 o’clock, I left for the restaurant where I wanted to go for a long time after I came back to Japan. I went along the Jikkasegi weir.

I used a navigation function in my mobile phone. Although it recommended me a strange course, the Latest mobile phone is great.

At last, the restaurant called “Ohsho” came to Matsumoto. Ohsho means the king! The main food is Chinese noodles and dumpling restaurant. I used to come to the restaurant when I was in Osaka, my home town. By the way, I knew that the name "Ohsho" is a circular notice.

I looked back upon my life in Osaka.
