There was a three-day weekend in Japan last weekend.

On October 8th, I went to a friend’s house to participate in a barbecue. He is a college classmate and he has two small children. In the evening, his neighbor’s friends and family also joined us and we had a great time. His friend’s family’s wife was drunk because she was having too much fun. Therefore, the family returned home on the way. My friend and I enjoyed drinking and talking until late at night, even after his wife and children had gone to bed. The content of the conversation was mainly how to behave as an office worker. What we wanted to achieve within the limits of the organization was what to give up and what not to give up. The bottom line was that I thought too much about it and it didn’t make sense for me to become mentally ill, so I had to do it in moderation.

The next morning, my friend’s kid woke me up to play golf with his Nintendo Wii. On that day, I had to leave his house early because I had some business to go to Kyoto. My friend’s children see me regularly. But I haven’t been able to meet them as they requested, so they always say, “When is he coming to your house?” Under such circumstances, it was difficult for me to refuse to play Wii. I spent an hour playing 18 holes with him. And when I was finally about to head to Kyoto, friend’s second child, a 3-year-old girl, wouldn’t leave me. She almost cried to play more. However, it was almost time for me to leave for Kyoto, so I left my friend’s house with a very sad feeling.

After that, I arrived in Kyoto in an hour and a half by motorcycle. I arrived in Kyoto around 13:00, but it started to rain. In a slightly chilly temperature, I went to an exhibition site called Miyako Messe near Heian Shrine. On this day, an acquaintance invited me to an exhibition of natural stones in Kyoto. Currently, I only sell Akoya pearls, but an acquaintance suggested that I try to sell natural stones as well. An acquaintance of mine is certified as a gemstone by GIA and is very knowledgeable about natural stones. I had the acquaintance attend to me until the evening, observing various natural stones.

Next time, I will write about the natural stone I purchased. I’m running out of time today.



I am part of a Japanese company with an Akoya pearl farm. Apart from the company, I personally run an Akoya pearl shop. I would appreciate it if I could share smiles with various people through pearls.
