Jizo for Children Update

I was doing volunteer at Jizo for Children at Pine Mountain Club in California during the summer, 2009. As a result of my effort and Ruth Handy kindness, she will put me in her NPO website as a visiting teacher.


This is my bio will be at her site. She BBCied documents to her designer.


.  Tomoe Nakamura resides in Osaka, Japan and San Francisco, CA.  Ruth and Tomoe met at the 60th Anniversary of the nuclear bombing in Hiroshima, Japan in 2005.   Tomoe is the official Japanese translator and Japanese community liason for the Jizo Peace Center.  She shares traditional knowledge about Jizo and helped lead the Memorial Ceremony for Lost Children in May, 2009.  Currently she is pursuing a college degree in fine art and photography.




Picture with Ruth and Margarite at Getty museum. It was fun.

Mantis at my Gate 10/27/09

Have you seen a mantis in your area?
I live in a mountain area, and when it is getting warmer, it comes out. But I haven't seen it on top of my gate, so I took it.

最近カマキリ見ましたか?うちは山が近いので暖かくなったら出てきます.
門の上にいたので,写真撮りました.

Berlingame 8/17/09

I took these photos the day before I went back to Osaka. I stayed one night at Vagabond Hotel close to the airport. It was the second time I stayed there, but I gave myself a reward and stayed at ocean view room. There is a path way along the peninsular, and people who stay there or live there strolling around and watching airplane come and go. I really like the place. Even the restaurant/bar next to the hotel is very reasonable and food there is tasty. Maybe when I came back to San Francisco, I want to find a place in South Bay.....
