An accident

2009-09-24 | diary

  A sad accident happened yesterday afternoon.
A seven-year-old boy fell down to a pond called O-i-ke near my house and was drowned.
He was trying to catch dragonfly at the side of the pond.
They say that some part of the fence was broken and unluckily he fell down from the place. 
The funeral is held the day after tomorrow.
I'd like to express my condolences.

  A farmer set this electric wire around his rice field to prevent from wild animals like wild boar, raccoon dog and fox.
If they touch this wire, they will be shocked and run away.
This is a battle between man and wild animals.

Rice plant

2009-09-01 | rice field (farming)

  About 80 days have passed since we planted rice plants.
They are growing well and I saw the flowers of this plant the other day.
Ears of rice plant are also growing well day by day.
We had less hours of sunlight than usual year in this summer, so  crop prospects is worse.
But I hope we have good harvest in this fall !
