It continues to be drainingly hot and I do very little. Here are some random vignettes.
There is a lot of fruit around. The Japanese revere fruit. Its appearance seems as, if not more, important than the taste- er I think. Arisa san gives me a perfect bunch of Shine Muscat grapes from Imari, her hometown.
Talking of eating, I eat almost exclusively cold meals. Too hot for Jugged Hare.
Old friend Tomoko Saito http://tomokosaito.net and her husband, play Irish music in Yomitan. It is a bizarre event in many ways. They play outside so it is extremely hot and wear coats of many colors – not very Irish!
Their little girl frequently wanders up to her mother to show her something on a phone. No one is concerned. No one tries to pull her away and Tomoko just smiles and keeps playing. Admirable.
I got to know Tomoko way back in 2016. https://thequietripple.com/2016/11/27/tricolor/ . It is great to see her again. She is a wonderful musician.
I visit Tomari fish market.
Of course I go to the dentist a lot. It is a cheap hobby.
