“Winter on Sado” by Eri Uchida
Jan. 30, 2014
Today, we have wonderful weather, which is rarely seen on Sado at this time of year. How beautiful the morning sea is! I saw a stairway to heaven.
The sky over Kodo Village is so blue! This is very unusual!
I wish it was warm like today everyday, but it is still in January. I don’t think I can be that optimistic.
I convinced myself this year that winter is meant to be cold, so I should warm myself up! So, I run when it’s chilly, play “Yatai-bayashi” when it’s freezing and battle on against the winter weather. Now, I really miss springtime. I think it’s important to look forward to the next season coming, especially in such modern times.
Many of us are pleased with this mild winter, but the only person who is sulking and saying ” I want to play in the snow!” like a kid is .. this guy in dressed in yellow.

In the early evening we started to gather around, we sang a “Dondo-yaki” song, and set the fire alight.
