THE VIEW FROM THE SKY SCRAPER.

           There is a skyscraper at Ikebukuro in Tokyo. The building is named Sunshine 60.

    The observation floor is located in 60th. It takes about 30 minutes from our house by car.


It was a very fine day. We could see Mt.Fuji.

ZUSHI SEASHORE IN KANAGAWA.

          It takes only one hour to go to Zushi seashore from Tokyo railroad station.


           It was a very fine day, but Heavy winds would blow for a long time.


We could see Mt.Fuji from Zushi seashore.

逗子海岸と富士山です。

Young people would enjoy windsurfing.


It was a nice day for them.


Zushi seashore.


We could see the wind patterns on the sand. 風紋です。


We came here to see ancient  tomb mounds,they were found only 15 years ago.

長柄桜山古墳です。 15年前に発見されました。

One of the tomb mounds.
These tomb mounds are very important for our ancient history.

この古墳の発見によって、日本武尊命が三浦半島から房総半島に
船で渡ったという説が史実であったとする根拠になるとも考えられます。

There is a folk museum very near the mounds. 郷土資料館です。

This building was used as a villa for the tycoon's descendant.

ここは、16代徳川家当主、徳川家達(いえさと)の別荘でした。


The view from the villa.

What kind of things would the descendant think?

彼はこの眺めを見ながら何を考えていたのでしょうか。

Merry Christmas!

My wife made two Christmas wreaths.
