ハンドボール男子世界選手権

2019-01-13 | そのほか

1/13(日) ホテルにチェックインして少し休憩した後、向かった先は。。。ミュンヘンのオリンピックパーク。そう、ハンドボール男子の世界選手権で日本戦があるところ。試合結果などが載っているハンドボール協会のHPはこちら

会場到着。ちょうど選手たちが練習している最中だった。練習中のところに日本の旗を振って行ったら選手が気づいてくれた!かなりミーハーな私と友達。

宮﨑大輔、アダム、門山さん。

選手入場。

門山さん!がんばって~。

マスコットキャラクターなのか?可愛くない。

生演奏もあり。

クロアチアの壁は厚く、負けてしまった。。。

次のスペイン vs アイスランド戦を見るために腹ごしらえ。

アイスランドの応援団が凄い!

日本は残念ながら負けてしまったけれど、門山さんともちょこっと話せたし、観戦出来て楽しかった!

ドイツ博物館

2019-01-13 | そのほか

1/13(日) コペンハーゲン6:00発の飛行機に乗って、いざ、ミュンヘンへ。今回の目的はハンドボール男子の世界選手権を観戦するため。ドイツとデンマークの共同開催なのだけれども、全日本代表がプレイするのはドイツのミュンヘンなので、行っちゃえ~ってことで。子供ナシで泊まりの旅行は今回が初めてなので、ドキドキ。

試合は16:30開始でそれまで時間があるので、ドイツ博物館へ。色々写真を撮ったけれど、説明が面倒なのでそのまま写真を載せるのでご覧くださいませ。

ランチはソーセージではなく、タイカレー。。。

とにかく、いろんな分野のものが展示されている見ごたえがある博物館でした。面白かった!

ミュンヘンの街にはトラムが走っていて、なんだか可愛い。

ホテルに到着。今回のホテルはHotel Europaというところ。外観はイマイチだけれど、中は広くて綺麗。

少し休憩して、向かった先は。。。オリンピックパーク。

続きはのちほど。

2019-01-11 | 家のこと

1/10(木) 家の改装をしている大工さんはこのおじさん二人。毎朝7:30にやって来る。今日は床の下の板を張るらしい。

お茶から帰ってきたら床の下の部分が綺麗に張られていた。

とにかく仕事が早い。

11(金) キッチン横の部分の床下もやってしまいたいというので、急きょ、荷物を動かすことに。きのう言ってくれれば夜のうちにやっておいたのに。。。と思ったけれど、きっと朝に思いついたんだろう。本棚の本を移動させるのがちょっと大変だった。

キッチンがものすごいことになっている。

チビオレ、幼稚園に行く前に歯磨き中。

これは断熱材?古い!

昼間はパパと床選びに出かけた。種類が多くて選べない!

近所のホームセンター。朝5:30から開いているってのが凄い。

無料のコーヒーマシーン。これは嬉しい。

人件費が高くてDIYをする人が多いので、とにかく道具の種類も多い。

最後に行ったBauhausでランチ。

豚肉スライスと赤キャベツが入ったバーガー。これで1,000円位。デンマークスタンダードだと普通の値段。。。

帰って来て近所のおばあさんちに顔を見せに行って、ようやく買ってきたものを広げてみた。

今回はあまり買わなかったと思っていたけれど、こうして広げてみるとだいぶ買ったみたい。。。何度も足を運んだわけではなく、元旦に地元のスーパーで子供のためにじゃんけんくじ引きに参加させるために行っただけだったので、「あー、あれ買わなきゃ!」的なストレスは全くなかった。あとは結構もらったものも多くて、全部ありがたいプレゼントになった。いい出汁ももらえて嬉しい。

初釜

2019-01-10 | そのほか

1/10(木) 子供たちは夜中に一度起きたものの、そのまま起きることがなかったので、今回の時差ボケはとりあえずはオッケー。二人とも学校と幼稚園に無事行ってくれたので、私は予定していたお茶の初釜に行くことにした。(初釜とは。)

今回の亭主(おもてなししてくれる人)が作ってくれた茶懐石。お見事!

美味しゅうございました。

主菓子。

いよいよお濃茶。

次は薄茶のお点前を頂きます。

年に一度の大事な日なので、この日に参加することが出来てよかった。今回日本でお茶の基本セットを買ったので、これから始まるお稽古が楽しみになってきた。「日日是好日」という本を借りて機内で読もうと思ったら、ちょうど映画化されたものを機内で見ることが出来て、なんとなくどういう風に取り組んでいけばいいのか分かった気がする。本も読み終えたし、今度は買ってきたお作法の本を読んで少しは勉強しないとね。。。

ただいま!

2019-01-09 | 日本帰国

1/9(水) 空港での最後の朝食は朝マック。。。これで1,000円ちょっとって、やっぱり日本は安い!

こちらでちょこっとお買い物。

最後まで仲良くふざけあう二人。

お!飛行機だ!

平成ライダーたち。そっか、平成が終わるから、こういうシリーズやってるのね。

乗って一時間位で寝ちゃった人。小さい人は寝たふり。

ヘルシンキに着いたら、寒い!雪!

空港までバス移動。ジャンパーチェックインして預けちゃったから、寒いよー。(でも、元気!)

そして、また、寝る。だって、夜中だもんねぇ。。。

今度は本島に寝てる。

コペンハーゲンに到着!お迎えありがとう~。

そして帰ったら。。。一階がこんなことになってた!

一ヶ月ちょっとで完成予定です。どうなることやら。。。しばらくは家の改装ネタが続きそうです。ご容赦くださいませ。では~。

1/8(火) 若松から高速バスで東京へ。じいちゃん、ばあちゃん、ありがとう~!また遊びに来るよー。

そして早速。。。

山の雪。今年は少なかったなー。

高速のサービスエリア、羽生パーキング。10分しかいられないのが残念。

本日のランチ。

12月の滞在の時と同じホテル。

東京は快晴!(会津は雪。。。)

今回のお楽しみ、キッザニアでお仕事体験開始!キッザニアはいろんなお仕事体験が出来る施設で、今は全世界?にあるらしい。

最初はヤクルトで細菌研究。

最後にジュースをもらったよ。

次はバナナのパッキングのお仕事。

自分がパッキングしたバナナがもらえた。

空き時間に銀行口座開設。ここも大人は入れない。

この日の一番のお楽しみ、ピザ作り。

作ったピザはすぐに頂きます!と行きたかったのだけれども、閉館時間前にもう一つお仕事体験、ということで、サッカースタジアムへ。

ここはキッゾを払ってやるところ。

いろんな練習をしてくれた。

キックのフォームを画像で撮ってくれる。

画像を見てアドバイスをもらっているところ。

最後に自分のフォームが印刷された紙をもらって終了。

ようやく食事にありつけました。もうすぐ21時!

Last day with my parents

2019-01-07 | 日本帰国

1/7(Mon) The very last day at my parents' place.

Finally, Oliver had a chance to play table tennis with Yuta.

Victor was just running around the house with his new winter boots. He is very happy!

Yuta was very good and Oliver could not beat him...

On the way to Wakamatsu. Another beautiful day!

Last lunch with my parents's is...

We ate a lot and the total is 5,096 yen! So cheap...

Today's mission is...to get some Pokemon at Tsurugajo Castle in Wakamatsu.

Volunteer guide for us.

The castle.

Heart shape!?

The basement in the castle.

There are more beautiful stuff displayed in the castle, but the photo was not allowed, so there are no photos on those floors.

On the top of the castle.

The very famous tea house.

The tea is for me and the sweet is for him.

Oh the way home. Mr. Bandai.

And their 'must'.

We enjoyed the very last onsen at lotus inn.

We had another good day. We are heading to Tokyo tomorrow and will be home in Denmark on the 9th!

Last day in Kitakata

2019-01-06 | 日本帰国

1/6(Sun) My mom wanted to go to a hair dresser in Kitakata, so we all went to Kitakata. While we were waiting for my mom, we went to the kids' favourite place.

The weather was also fine today.

After the game centre, we went to the usual ramen chain store, Korakuen.

This was only 30kr!

After this, we said good-by to my sister and her kids and continued shopping. Kids bought good shoes using their gift money.

Skiing, second time

2019-01-04 | 日本帰国

1/4(Fri) We decided to go skiing the second time to the same place we went on the 31st December.

On the way to the Ski Resort. Mr. Bandai.

Good weather, again!

We practiced with one leg on the ski, first.

Walking practice, too.

On the lift to the slope.

Here we go!

After one run, they already wanted to have a break.

Easy way to down the hill.

Last time we had to wait for a long time to get food, so we decided to bring lunch today. On the way to our car, eating ice cream.

He walks very slowly because...

he is still eating ice cream!

Cup noodle.

After a lunch break, we went back to the slope.

My friend joined us after lunch. She was an elementary school teacher before, so she is very good at skiing. 

A little bit of lesson.

On the gondora up to the top of the mountain.

A little bit foggy and very cold.

I had to ski down the hill holding Victor on my arms, but after that he could ski by himself. It was quite steep hill for beginners, but they did a very good job!

The course was quite difficult, but they didn't give up. Oliver was so tired that he could not do any more, but Victor was fresh enough to do one more run! Good jog, boys!

On the way home, driving through Wakamatsu.

Bange, so many birds!

Victor is pround that he has this! It was good he did not break his leg...

Looks terrible, but he is okay.  Strong boy!

Another good day, again....

2019-01-03 | 日本帰国

1/3(Thurs) My sister's kids stayed last night, so we decided not to stay at home and relax today.

Ready for skiing!?

Big boys...

Small ones...

All together in the living room.

They finally decided to go out and play a little bit.

Badminton in the snow!?

Playing card all together.

Onsen in the evening.

We have another 4 more days here. I feel I am done here and am ready to go back to Denmark.

Lucky boy again

2019-01-02 | 日本帰国

1/2(Wed) The weather is very good today.

We went to a tea shop in Wakamatsu to buy my tea ceremony equipment. We visited the shop at the end of the year, but the woman at the shop recommended that I should come back on the 2nd January because they have the fun event.

The fun event is this...↓ We can draw the lottery one time with 2000 yen purchase. Exactly the same as yesterday! But the prize is different. The best prize is 10,000 yen!!! The second is 5,000 yen, the third is 1,000, the fourth is 500 yen and the last one is 200 yen. I used 14,000 yen, so Oliver tried 3 times and Oliver tried 4 times.

Victor tried first.

And then Oliver.

Oliver won 1,000 yen twice, 500 yen once and 200 yen once.

Victor won 500 yen twice and 200 yen once. 

We were so happy to win the money, so we went back to the shop and bought some more. Oliver won 500 yen twice and Victor won 200 yen. Oliver won 3,700 yen in total and Victor won 1,400 yen.

We had lunch at a running sushi.

I met my sister and her kids at Ooedo Onsen. We played at an indoor playground first.

The small ones also tried table tennis.

They played really good.

When they are all together...

The big ones had to do their homework. Poor them...

They are going to stay tonight, so it will be fun for kids.

The 1st day of 2019

2019-01-01 | 日本帰国

1/1(Tue) We managed to wake up Victor and came to the shrine in town.

Am I going to drink Sake!?

After visiting the shrine, we came to the temply in town.

Waiting to ring the bell.

So it is our turn.

Outside of the temple.

Next mornig, we had mochi for breakfast.

and some special food for New Year.

Mochi with Natto, and horseraddish soup.

iPad time...

It was snowing and windy, so we decided not to relax at home.

We took a little walk to Oobaa's place to say hi.

At Oobaa's place.

We got Otoshidama(New Year's gift money) from Oobaa.

There are lots of sprinklers to melt the snow on the street.

We went shopping to Liondor to buy some snacks. We could draw the lottery once with 2000 yen purchase if you win the janken.

He said he would only do the paper, so they could win and draw the lottery 7 times in total.

Of course the lucky boy won the best prize(1000 yen gift voucher) and juice and a package of rice crackers.

Victor won juice, egg and a package of ricecrackers.

After shopping, we went to the local Onsen and relaxed.

Yakiniku party at my brother's place.

They played the Fortnite together and

Won! They became No.1! They were very happy.

Another good day ended...

Skiing and the end year party

2018-12-31 | 日本帰国

12/31(Mon) Our hotel.

The ski resort was only 10 mins drive from our hotel.

Kids wanted to try skiing for the first time today, so we rented a ski set.

It was difficult to stand on the ski at first, but gradually they got used to walk on the snow.

We already had a break after a little bit practice.

We took a chair lift after the break.

Victor was quite energetic and keen on going forward.

We could see Lake Inawashiro from the slope. Very beautiful view.

They were amazingly good. I didn't teach them so much, just how to stop. I think they had a very good balance. The weather also helped us to enjoy skiing. We all had a good time today. We would like to try one more time before going back to Denmark.

Dinner at home.

We had some good sushi today.

Cheers!

He was very happy that he had a good salmon.

Crab.

Relaxing, watching TV and playing game.

Playing card with Jiichan and Baachan.

Slept a little bit.

Slept deeply...

We are going to go to a shrine and a temple before midnight, so we are leaving soon!

Snowboarding

2018-12-30 | 日本帰国

 

12/30(Sat) Next day we had 'asara-'(eating ramen noodles for breakfast) for breakfast. It is quite normal to have ramen in the morning. The first two shops are quite crowded and this is the third shop we tried. The ramen was quite good.

Mitsuki

On the way to Inawashiro.

The very first time for Victor to try snowboarding.

We have a private professional instructor for three of us.

What are you doing Victor!? Escaping from something?

Getting up is quite difficult.

This is the fourth season for Oliver to try snowboarding, so it is not that difficult.

He was playing with snow while the instructor was helping him out...

Am I good?

Listening to her advice.

About to fall...

Lunch break.

The first time to go on a chair lift.

I was with Oliver.

Blizzard...

Face became very cold.

You shouldn't bring your own food to the restaurant. The picture is with onigiri, not sausage.

Good job, boys!

Dinner at a restaurant.

They liked the food.

Mine was also good.

Menu.

We could only use wifi at the lobby, so we had to come here to use internet.

We played table tennis at the hall.

Some pictures from the hotel.

The weather was very bad for snowboarding, but kids did really good. The hotel was nice and clean, and the people were very nice. Onsen was also good. I decided to stay at the hotel the day bofore so that kids might able to try to ski or snowboard the next day. Another good day ended.
