  4. The place of uninterrupted suffering is a place I hope not to inhabit! I'd rather be in the green paradise beyond. That red bridge over the river is a lovely spot!

  12. 今日は地獄と天国の旅を楽しませて頂きました。硫黄の池の写真好きです。九州から戻られて、今回は青森に向かわれてすごいスタミナですね。母親の介護の役目を終えたら、あちらこちら旅をしたいと思いますが Minoruさんのような元気はきっとありません。良い週末を!

      こんばんは。元気なうちに色々な所へ行きたいと頑張ってます。 介護は大変ですね。ショートステイを使ってみる方法もありますね。

    2. 是非頑張って下さい。若い頃は長所でもあった、プライドが高く負けず嫌いな部分が今もしっかり残っていて、デイもショートステイも絶対に行きたがりません。無理に行かせたらおそらく高い血圧が更に上がって、一瞬に命を失くすと思います。訪問サービスを受けて、今は忙しい中に見つける楽しみを大切にしています。Have a good new week.

      そうですか、大変ですね。私も父、母の介護をしました。介護している人の辛さを他の人が分かって呉れると、少しは気が休まるのですが。

  15. This temple and location is so unusual with names like hell. LOL
    I am amazed by the existence of a natural sulphur pond.

  16. 今度はどこへ出かけられたかと思っていました。暑くなってくると北のほうがいいですね。三途の川は青空を映してきれいなブルー。硫黄の湧き出ているところに地獄あり、昔の人達が何を恐れ何を尊んだかわかります。
