Yesterday I went to Yokosuka with my wife because We had a relatives funeral.Last week I had just been to Yokosuka for the first time, so I did not even dream that I would come there for two weeks straight.
We left the hall about 19:30.We were resigned to holiday traffic jams with the cars returning to Tokyo.But…
Smoothly We went back home in the east of Tokyo after 20:30.We never thought that We could go home so early.If We could always pass smoothly like yesterday, people would be able to feel the value of the toll road.
Why do traffic jams occur, except for construction and accidents? It was early evening that I thought so driving on the highway.
All the advertisements on the wall in the train were in the video.People have seen them over the door in the video from a long time ago.But It was my first experience to ride a vehicle that even all of them over the window were in the video.
Could I see the same sight in other vehicles? I looked into the vehicle that came and went, but I couldn’t see it.There were still a lot of vehicles that printed media were published over the window .
I guess I happened to meet a new kind of vehicle.However, if I saw once, all of them I would see will be new type like this.
I guess the print media is going to be decreasing more and more.
My wife and I went out to stay there with my son and his friend.We decided to eat dinner together, and other than that, we and they acted separately.
The grave of my family home is in Kamakura, and we often visit.After thinking about where to go sightseeing, We decided to leave Kamakura on the first day.
We thought that we would go a little way further to MIsaki ,and eat a delicious fish.But under the influence of the bus tour ‘HATO BUS’ we took part in the other day, we checked to see if I could do some experiential sightseeing.
And, having hit is “Gunkou Meguri“.It is Naval round.It is an hour-long tour of Yokosuka port on the sightseeing ship.
Typhoon 18 was predicted to pass through Honshu this weekend.After careful consideration, I made a reservation on Friday.Because I thought that we would be able to get on the ship on Saturday ,if it was in the morning.It was hard to get a seat on Saturdays and Sundays on this tour, a popular tour.I was nervous to be able to ride the reservation the day before.
On the day, I headed to Yokosuka from Kamakura by JR (JapaneseRailway).It was the first time to go by train far from Kamakura using the Yokosuka Line.At this point my mind was already in a field excursion state.
I arrived at Yokosuka station in about 20 minutes including the separation time of the train.The form of the station and the warship anchored entered my eyes at the same time.Even I was not a military geek, but the first time I saw , it was too excited to see the warship very close.I was going to stand in the seat and ‘ sit down ‘ from my wife.
It was a 10-minute walk from the ticket gate of the station to the entrance to the pier.Many warships anchored in the harbor came into my sight.The rain was falling, but the waves were quiet because of inside the harbor.
A large ship , a quiet sea.This comparison took my breath away.
10 o’clock on time.The sightseeing ship sailed.
The male flight attendant guide is fun and study.He taught us the role of each warships and how to identify the types of them.Destroyer, transport ship, minesweeper, observation ship of Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force , and submarine , aegis ship of the U.S. Navy.
Aegis ship to hear well recently. It is a ship equipped with an advanced air defense system.
Of the 100 ships sailing around the world, it was said that a few ships were anchored in the port of Yokosuka.I listened to the explanation, especially reflecting the international situation(North Korea matter).
If you read to this point, you will think that this tour is a strong military color. In fact, I think that you can enjoy this tour, just like any other sightseeing tour.
It was a fun tour to guide us the visible reality with knowledge and laughter My wife who had a unwillig face before she boarded also said a word ‘ it was fun than I thought’
But I thought It was a shame that the passenger’s age group is high. I wondered how this tour would meet the eyes of young people.If my son and his friend had taken part in this tour, how would they have seen this spectacle in their eyes honestly?
After we got off the harbor, we took a breather at Starbucks Coffee.(By the way, the ship seen from the window of Starbucks is a warship)
I found out this ‘HATO BUS tour’ and had kinds of course only for short time Tokyo-sightseeing. At first I thought of a thing with the added value, such as with a lunch ,with dinner, with a show. But I chose this course, which is the simplest and the most interested straight .
Hibiyakouen (Park) → Kasumigaseki (Government District) → Kokkaigijidou (National Diet Building) → Toranomon Hills →Tokyo Tower → Rainbow Bridge→ Odaiba→ Tsukiji →Kabukiza →Ginza
It was almost an hour. Though it was a familiar town for us, we could not usually see these view without the height of that viewpoint and a feeling of release. In addition, the guidance was very fun and study for us.
We were satisfied. After getting off, we took lunch in the basement of Tokyo Station and headed back to Tsukiji outside market. Because we were interested in the guide’s explanation.
Is it past 15 O’Clock when we came home? We were a little tired and took a nap. It might be that such a short sightseeing was suitable for a couple of over 50.
Personally, I think it’s time from November to May. However, I attach it condition.
`If you want to color a omen with paint-spraying’
You might know why. It’s humidity.
In high humidity conditions, it is difficult for the shiny painting. The paint becomes whitish. The paint for PVC is affected due to the humidity strongly because its chemical property is quick drying.
We make the painting room dry with one air conditioner and one humidifier in the room, and with four spot coolers from outside. In addition, we use a heat-insulating bulb to warm the molded product and paint it. If all else fails, we mix the retarder (= Dry delay agent) in the paint.
Mixing the retarder, We have to get prepared to keep the paint not dry and the masking tools sticky. We become less efficient at work.
If not in the best time, It becomes increasingly likely that we can’t paint it well. So, it is just now.
We are not able to finish the work behind schedule.
Today’s title is the best season to make a omen. It is a technical story, but I just want to whine. I feel sorry for myself.
