Japanese Wrapping

Sweet Jelly in Square Basket 
If you've been to Japan, you have experienced it.
When you shop at shops, department stores, things are carefully wrapped.

Lately, if it is for my own use, I try to decline, for saving papers, plastic bags.    Trying to choose eco-friendly way.

This was a gift from my friend's mother.
Summery, basket container!

It seems they were already packaged in this basket.  After eating sweets, you can use this for something....as stationary case, tray for letters, greeting cards etc...

Marine Day --- Holiday in Japan

We are still in rainy season, yet this weather is already mid summer!  Very hot and when I walk, it feels like being grilled..... dehydrated, burned.

This is Marine Day holiday.  Am I supposed to be lying on the beach?

New project came in, so I have to work today.  It feels good though.  I'm healthy enough ( haven't done any check-up lately, so I need to do) , working @ OSS Cafe near my place.  In air-conditioned, cool, comfortable room.

I like to remind myself though, there are things we need to pay attention to.
This article is explaining about a part of Japan, where needs more attention and help.
