Today, though it was raining we went out to see an exhibition and to a shrine.
The shrine is Mamada-shrine, which is famous for HIKU (It is a kind of short poem and the style has 5-7-5 sounds in Japanese.) At the shrine HIKU we make is be able to dedicated for free, and the HIKUs which are made in the month are showed on the bulletin board in the shrine.

In the shrine there is a smouring, it's unusual. In this area, SUMOU for kids is popular.

This place is a gallery where my friend holds an exhibition.
She makes accessory with MIZUHIKI which is a kind of string.
