I wonder why Japanese city government in my hometown prune street trees so much. Street trees are so important to people who live there. Also City government says that it is because citizens complain that they care about fallen leaves in Autumn. Government used to have much money for urban green and they planted many street trees. They took care of those trees at that time. But today, economical issue, government cut their budget and they have not got enough money to take care of street trees. So when citizens complain about fallen leaves, government prune too much instead of cleaning up the street. Government ask citizens to help them to clean up the street too.

I will get very excited when I see filmmakers with a camera. I grew up in a production company where people worked at that time loved documentaries when I entered the company. I talked about light and shadow and edit sometimes with my boss. I am sure I wasn’t a really good employee for him since I was too young to understand what he was feeling. Now I miss the time. I appreciate what he taught me. I can’t forget about it. I won’t.
Exploring the Sapporo Snow Festival (さっぽろ雪まつり)
The city of Sapporo in northern Japan has hosted its weeklong snow festival every year since 1950. The first festival had only six participants––local high school students who built six modest snow statues in Odori Park. Now, millions of people visit the festival to view over 200 elaborate snow statues and ice sculptures. Often the statues depict notable events, places or people from the previous year. This year, there are replicas of Thailand’s Wat Bendamabophit Temple, Taipei’s Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and Japan’s Kabuki-za Theater, as well as sculptures of anime characters Hatsune Miku, Kasane Teto and Sekka Yufu.
