  • I visited the graves of my ancestors today. Many Japanese visit thier family grabes during お盆(obon) - August 13 to 15. But I couldn't visit that time because of my work, so I visited today.

    The scenery around the graveyard looks the same as I've visited in my childhood. Although I visit the grave almost every year, somehow, I compared the scenery with the scenery I've seen in my childhood. And most people say it's shabby that the scenery has not changed for ages. On the other hand most people feel かわいい(kawaii) when they look what they don't ever look. People may feel かわいい when they look something new . But we have to realize the value of unchanged nature, customary, and scenery. So I visited the graves this year too.
