  • I think it was a few month ago when I knew 時手紙(Toki-Tegami which means Time-Letter). 時手紙 is the letter which will send 10 years later. To send 時手紙 to myself ten years after, I biked over 100km to 海辺の文学記念館(Umibe-no-Bungakukinennkan - the sea-side literary mueum).

    That day I encountered hit-and-run I was also going to go there. I gave it up that day, but I don't give it up forever. After one month, I did bike there and sent 時手紙 to myself ten years after.

    While I biked I thought what I wrote. If I could, I'd have liked to write some sensible things. But I couldn't think such a thing. The more I thought, I thought I should write ordinary things. I arrived there and I began to write, although I wrote very very ordinary things I was moved to tears for some reason. The gracious hostess was very briskly, it was very confortable for me, being nearly in tears.
