The very hot day goes on these days. To think with English is very nuisance.I went to tableland area by a car to enjoy the cool. It is in the mountains, is called Shigaraki, there is between the Shiga prf and Kyoto prf. As I neared an entrance of the Sigaraki-area, which was famous of the pottery.
The big yellow raccoon dog came into my view; it was the symbol of the Sigaraki pottery.
So, it was the first time I meet the Yellow color raccoon dog. When I met it last time, probably it was the black color. It sure was showy. And it was good landmark that it stood out from the rural scene. I imagined that they needed how much paint of yellow color, new type of modern color. Wow, it was really hard work, wasn’t it?
It delighted my eye and was really cute. By the way, my main purpose was to enjoy the cool air. But, there was also very hot. Actually, the TV news said, Hotukaido-area is getting hot day these days. The environment of the farm product was changed, there was not fit to rice product before, but they could produce good rice these days. I understood, Japan also heated up with the global warming. Where is the cool place? When I parked the car at the car park of the pottery store, the jolly dolls came into my eye from across the street. It seemed that they invited me into the store. And, I went there to get a break with cool air. As I went in to the store, many potteries come into my view. After I looked around the store, I bought three pottery cups for the party of my old friend. Those were typical design of the Sigaraki pottery. And it looked like a bargain. It was short drive to the suburb on very hot day of summer.
ほんとに暑いこの頃、英語を考えるのがホントわずらわしい、涼を求めて郊外へ出かけた、滋賀県と京都の中間の山の中、信楽高原が目的地。 焼き物で有名な信楽の入り口で大きな黄色い狸に遭遇、狸は信楽の名物。でも黄色の狸は初めてだ、いつもの狸は黒色が定番、黄色は目立つ、のどかな景色の中で確かに格好の目印だ、新しいタイプの狸、塗るのにどれくらいのペンキを使ったのかな？ 塗るのは大変だったろうな！ 可愛くて楽しい狸だ、なんてことを考えながら通り過ぎた。
出かけた目的は涼をとること、だけどそこは同じく暑い！ テレビで北海道でも暑い日が続いていて、本来作なかつたお米が作れるそうだ、日本が暑いのは地球温暖化の影響なのかな！ やはり！ どこへ行けば涼しいのだ！
陶器の店の駐車場の車を止めると、道を挟んで可愛い人形が目に飛び込んできた、 こっちの店に来て！ と言われているようで、入ってみた、涼しい！ 店の中を一回りして、信楽焼のコップを三個買った、お買い得！ な感じ！ 今度のパーティで使おう。暑い夏の日のショートドライブでした。
