Beautiful! the Seto inland sea

瀬戸内島3
I went to the Seto Inland Sea in May.
I took photos on the ferry from Matsuyama(Ehime Prefecture) to Yanai(Yamaguchi Prefecture).

瀬戸内島2

There are a lot of small islands in the Seto Inland Sea.
瀬戸内の島1
 瀬戸内島4
There is also 3 bridges linking Honshu and Shikoku island over the Seto Inland Sea.
But I like the ferry better than the bridges.
There is a nice breeze blowing on the sea!
Welcome to the Seto Inland Sea!

Meisui-kun was not so busy.

The election of the House of Councillors was held in Japan last Sunday.

This yellow animal is the official mascot of the election 'Meisui-kun'.  It is written that "you should go to the election!"on the banner.
選挙きぐるみ
Meisui-kun is designed to look like a ballot box. 
On this election he was not so busy, because of the budget deficit of Japan.

10 minutes night walk in Ueno TOKYO with YMO.

I walked around Ueno park and Ameyoko(Japanese famous shopping street in Tokyo, near Akihabara).
In this video my Japanese chat is not translated into English.
But images are common in all countries and titles are in English.
You can see the JR train running on the roof of shopping center!

Enjoy this video!

Gekkabijin means the beauty under the moon.
They bloom downside up like this.
