    Mr. O who has amazing knowledge about insects and animals, stopped by my cafe after a long period of time. We greeted each other shortly and soon he started talking about insects which chirp in autumn which include Hierodula patellifera he found in Ise, Umaoi (Hexacentrus japonicus) and grasshopper in Takamiya, and others. He showed beautiful photos which he took of all of them. He also let me hear chirping bell cricket and pine cricket with a movie clip which he found on the way back home in Taga after he finished his work at midnight. His explanation was very detailed and I sometimes couldn't catch up with him but somehow I nodded and asked some questions.

There is a fossil in my house which I bought in Brazil about forty years ago.When I showed it to him, he was amazed at it and looked closely. Then he researched about it on his cell phone and said that it is probably the fossil of Lower Cretaceous from Santana formations in South America. It is now prohibited for both mining and bringing out from Brazil. When I got it, there was no rule there, therefore it became very valuable.

Well, we will serve Izanami lunch this Sunday. Please make a reservation (0749-48-0186).
