Reishi Mashroom, Ganoderma lingzhi, 霊芝

I added Reishi Mashroom for daily Chinese Herbal tea, in order to improve my immune system. Reishi mashroom has been as expensive as gold since China dynasties, but the artificial cultivation that succeeded in 1970s decreased the prices. Currently, Reishi is widely cultivated in Japan.


My updated herbal tea is including
Chrysanthemum Flower 菊花
Lycium Fruit 枸杞子
Glossy Privet Fruit 女貞子
Solomonseal Rhizome 黄精
Rehmannia Root 熟地黄
Cistanche Herb 肉蓯蓉
Ganoderma lingzhi 霊芝
Honeysuckle Stem 忍冬

If I feel fever, I add the following two herbs.
Forsythia Fruit 連翹
Platycodon Root 桔梗

Chinese Herbal Tea with Reishi

Japan Participation to Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway Program led by the US

InJuly 9th, Japan government signed the participation to Artemis program, Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway Program led by the US. EU and Canada join this program, while China and Russia plan similar program independently.

My comment for this issue is how Japanese government acquire the budget for implementing and operating the program.
Annual budge of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(JAXA) has continued to be stable in 150 billion yen, 1.5 billion USD for more than 10 years. Operation budget for ISS is estimated to be 40 billion yen, 0.4 billion USD. Aerospace Experts estimate that it will cost 500 billion yen, 5 billion USD , in order to deliver one Japanese astronaut to the moon.
It will take at least 10 years, even if all budget for ISS is allocated to the program. However, it is impossible to set zero budget for ISS in 2024.

I am skeptical that other aerospace budget such as space science will be cut to save implementation cost.

Kirishima Kanko Hotel (霧島観光ホテル)

I stayed at Kirishima Kanko Hotel 4 times in March, May and June this year. This hotel relatively provides reasonable prices in Kirishima Hotspring compared with Kirishima Hotel and Kirishima Kokusai Hotel. Especially, staying in weekday between Monday and Thursday is much cheaper than in weekend. I paid 17,500 yen per night, in weekday price, for two, including dinner and breakfast.

This Hotel provides Japanese Kaiseki-style dinner and buffet breakfast. Breakfast is on average.

I recommend taking outdoor baths in Northern building rather than larger bathes in Central building.

Shochu, Japanese Sake. 1500yen for 1.5 hours per person
Apettizer of Dinner in June
Raw fish, Sashimi, of Dinner in June
ShabuShabu of Dinner in June
Dinner in May. Dinner in May was much better than in March and June.
Breakfast in May. For coronavirus pandemic, hotel didn’t provide buffet breakfast.

現代農業7月号届きました。Monthly Community Magazine for Farmers(July, 2020)


I received the latest edition of “Gendai-Nogyo”, Monthly Community Magazine for Farmers. I am not doing for agricultural business currently, but I have plans about how to get profits from agricultural land and forest which my father will inherit.


Main theme for this month is about “how did farmers sell their products in COVID-19 ?”. Some farmers had sold ones to schools, restaurants, direct sales places before this pandemic. However, during pandemics, they couldn’t distribute ones into these sales channels, were forced to sell ones into other channels instead.


Urban people including me must have different perspective from this magazine’s view, because agricultural product prices in grocery stores drastically increased by about 30 percent in my impression.


The reason of price gap above is by different sales channel, because grocery stores will basically purchase agricultural products from large distributors such as JA” Japan Agricultural Cooperatives”. During COVID-19 pandemic, most of people who had eaten out were forced to cook by themselves, who bought agricultural products sold in grocery stores. Demand increased for stable supply because the farmers in this magazine avoid supplying to large distributors taking large margin. Therefore, prices increased by imbalance between demand and supply.


In order for producers and consumers to be satisfied with, it is very important to increase independent sales channels of large distributor. Direct sales to consumers and package products among producers are examples to have solutions. Diversification will be protection also for future pademics, as there is proverb in stock investment “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”.

Meiji shrine of lifting “Declaration of a State of Emergency” 緊急事態宣言後の明治神宮

Even after of “Declaration of a State of Emergency” in April 7th, anyone could enter Meiji Shirine except for Inner Garden. I had visited Meiji Shrine, especially North Pond and Lawn in front of Treasury Meseum, almost every day.

However, Meiji Shrine regulated visiting the places except for Main Shrine between April 27th and May 26th, the lifted day of “Declaration of a State of Emergency”.

I visited the shrine to get relaxed around North Pond and Lawn in the evening of May 28th.

Main Shrine
North Pond and Lawn
It began to rain suddenly.
Takeshita Street recovered from few people during “Declaration of a State of Emergency”

I, living in Tokyo, received Two AbenoMasks, cotton-mask provided by central government, on the day of lifting “Declaration of a State of Emergency”

It took almost two months to received two masks since Japanese Prime minister declared providing two masks for each family in April fool day, April 1st.

During the period, many masks are stocked in any pharmacy shops. Therefore, the majority of Japanese believe that the expense of 46.6 billion yen ($430 million) is useless and will have budget pressure for taxpayers.

Quick decisions and actions are required for such emergencies.
