[The Mystery of Utsuro-bune (うつろ舟伝説)]

"Open an optical channel over gravity waves! (It's a ping‐pong transmission system.)" (negotiating...) (connecting...) "Hello, Utsuro-buneians!" "Hallo, Professor (教授)."


Tanaka Kazuo (田中 嘉津夫), Emeritus Professor (名誉教授) of Optical Information Engineering at Gifu University, likes U.F.O. stories in the Japanese Edo Era very, very much. He published 'The Mystery of Utsuro-bune' in English (in 2019) at last! The U.F.O. drifted to Hitachi (Ibaragi-Ken) is the subject of the book! Don't be confused by me. The book is far from reveries. He pursuits modification processes of Utsuro-bune (U.F.O.) stories juggling and decyphering many orthodox old documents in the book. In short, it's an academic book and he is always with the eye of a scientist. But, in fact, we have many U.F.O. stories in Edo Era and he is very fond of them!

[Mossie (モッシー)]


I was a lonesome kid. My favorite book was a picture book. (I had a few books at that time.) I liked to think that which is my most favorite lake of Fuji Five Lakes. The ranking often changed. But I liked Lake Sai very much. The picture book said that all of the lakes are connected by underwater paths. The article always trembled me. An UMA lives in Lake Motosu. It is Mossie (モッシー). Although Lake Sai is my lake, I can't play on the shores. Because Mossie is a hostile UMA and it comes to my lake to break me!

Chick, my bird, release a bird in your hands. It rises to the sky and it grows flap by flap. If your imagination is not crippled, your bird transfigures; it becomes an enormous monster bird that lives on magic dragons. Have a seat, and take yourself to the bird's eye. You are on the wind above Lake Sai. When your shadow runs on the big glass, I also see Mossie rushes into an egress.

[Kote E (鏝絵, or こてえ)] 

Kote E means Kote Pictures. Kote (鏝) means a Plasterer Trowel. A Kote E is a Japanese fresco painting. A Kote E's father is a painting and its mother is a carving, or vice versa. Because Kote E's are 3D works. (Are you sure? A Kote E is differ from a Western fresco painting in that a Kote E is 3D work.)

Irie Chouhachi (入江 長八) was the Kote E Master. He was called 'Izu no Chouhachi (伊豆の長八)'. He was active from the late Edo era to the early Meiji era. He was born at Matsuzaki (松崎). If you stay at Matsuzaki-chou Shizuoka-ken, you can see his more than 70 works.

[Shinshiro Rally (新城ラリー)]

The race was over.
Aki missed a prize.
He is a famous driver.
Because he has the megaenterprize.

All his men had a wet face.
A man cries in this situation.
Although it was a tough race,
Aki's run was near perfection.

And night falls.
"I burned completely," Aki laughes and tolls.
In the presence of his trailer, his team rallies in front of his fire.
Men, eat a barbecue and sing in chorus until you tire.
"We must back to each place tomorrow, so I serve you tonight as a punishment."
Aki and men are in a pink apron, with eternity, constellations, the firmament.

In Japan, rally is booming now. A regular staff must have three cars! One for golf with your bosses, so that this must be a humble car (Sheep Car). One for your daily use (Wolf Car in Sheep Fur). And one for rally (Wolf of Wolves Car)! Shinshiro Rally is the biggest rally in Japan, maybe.

Shinshiro-shi (新城市) has many TOYOTA related factories. And it has wild nature. It is a woodland. It has forestry roads. TOYOTA's CEO joined in the race and run the whole distance! (Are you sure!? He was born with a minicar in his mouth, wasn't he?)

[Tokyo Olympic (東京オリンピック)]

Corona puts off Tokyo Olympic. We are now counted down again! Karate is a new competition. Ex-P.M. Abe send us two medical masks, so called Abenomask (アベノマスク), for each and we all have received his masks. Media laughed at his masks. But, by virture of his masks, we could save our life. Thanks for his practical wisdom!

And a bad news comes. They say the Tokyo Olympic nobles offered that Tokyo Olympic must be cost down. Why? It's a money river and money tree, isn't it? It's a bad news! We have used time and money for it. Our future is deeply rooted in Tokyo Olympic, isn't it? I wonder how my jobhunting will go. I wonder how Chick's jobhunting will go. (Chick is a Senior now.)

Then, my suggestion:
When an airplane is rolling in, and, when a tourist jam reaches at an immigration counter, it's a good idea that geisha girls (a temporary staff, dressed a kimono) kiss on their cheeks and hand off two medical masks for each in a jam. We would call the masks Suganomask (スガノマスク) to honor P.M. Suga.

Now, Tokyo Olympic 2021 is settled. Coffee reading says there is a national election in the December and the Government parties win biggest in history.
So, Tokyo Olympic 2021 is settled. But, only God knows what happens tomorrow. May God bless Chick's jobhunting.

"Chick, you must do the geisha girl. And I'm in the jam. And our lips echo smack!" ("Get out, old timer!") A reverie always ruins us...


Great! A super katate! 何じゃこりゃ~! (Yes, I'm an old timer.)
