Wii or PlayStation3 ?

Wii is the new game console by Nintendo. And PlayStation3 is the one by Sony. Both of them will be available on this autumn.

I watched some movies of them on and read some E3 reports and other articles.
And I'm very impressed by the Wii. Especially the controller seems fun.
# I'm also interested in the new Mario for DS(not Wii). Huge Mario is so cute ;).

almost all Japanese(children as well as adults) have some game consoles.
But I dont' have one. Because I'm afraid I would not be able to do anything except playing games if I have a game console.
Actually, currently I play Sudoku on my mobile phone when I'm on buses/trains. I can't stop playing it by myself before reaching my destination. I think it's very bad thing for my life.

A two-days trip to Nikko

I had a two-days trip to Nikko from April 30 to May 1.
There are famous shrines/temples and it's been the one of UNESCO world heritage site.
This is my first experiance to visit Nikko, but I've loved there soon because they have their own styles against Kyoto shirines/temples.
Expecially, Tosho-gu shrine is good. Usually, the base color(walls, pillers) of the building of shrines/temples are red. But the color of Tosho-gu shirine's color is white. It's very strange for me, but very beautiful.
And the shrines/temples have a lot of carvings. You can find them everywhere .... at gates, room in the shrines/temples and walls. Especially, I like a lot of carvings of animals. They are so cutes.

A small but beautiful japanese garden.

Beautiful Sakuras are still available because Nikko is far north from Tokyo.

A gate enclosed by huge trees.

The white walls are impressive. And animal curvings are cool.

The 3 monkeys - the one of most famous carvings in Japan.
"Mizaru, Kikazaru, Iwazaru". It means "don't see, don't speak, don't hear".
The right monkey is covering his eyes - "don't see",
The center monkey is covering his mouth - "don't speak",
The left monkey is covering his ears - "don't hear"

Sleeping cat and birds carvings.

This is a gate of FUTA-ARA-SAN Shrine. It's beautiful. I like it.
