When I was driving, I smelled odor of incense from somewhere. Then, I remembered a story that someone whose death is approaching smells incense... I was afraid that it was a bad omen of a traffic accident. I drove much carefully than usual in raining night. But still I felt the odor of incense...
After a short while, I felt something in my mouth. There was a grain.
At last, I realized that it was a grinded grain of whilt pepper I used at dinner.
The odor came from my mouth!
As soon as I was really relieved, I saw a pink or red spotted car passing by. It was a Lucky or Happy taxi of Moo Moo Taxi Co. Pink spotted taxi is called Lucky and red one is Happy. I coudn't identfy which taxi was that in dark, but anyway, my anxiety was wiped away. Thanks, moo moo!

On Route 5, near JR Goryokaku Station, you can find this Thai food restaurant, Jackpot. On my birthday, I went to this restaurant, so my husband and I ordered various plates and we enjoyed them very much. Though you will be required to order at least one drink, I'm sure you will be satisfied with food provided there.
I ordered two glasses of beer and my husband ordered a glass of non-alcohol beer and we paid about 6,000yen. Next time I'd like to try their hot pot dish, called Thai-suki, Thai style sukiyaki.

It is really fine today in Hakodate. Though wind is cool, sunshine burns my skin.
I went to the Hakodate City Museum in Hakodate Park because the Hollow Clay Figure was on display. It was designated the first national treasure in Hokkaido last year. There were unusually many people to see the national treasure.
The elaborate design of the hollow clay figure and the variety of designs printed on the surface of earthenwares interested me a lot. A curator(maybe) appeared and explained the hollow clay figure to the visitors.
