The most active lady in the photo below is 82 years old. She has had an operation recently, and soon after restarted her weekly schedule. It is impressive. You are a model for me, Iida-sama. I will always remember your peaceful face and kind smile. I wish you good health, and myself to reach this beautiful age and be as active and full of energy. Hats off!
The water bottles have cute hand-made "clothes."
Everybody takes off their shoes when entering a school in Japan. Slippers are always there to be used.
Today's topic reminds me of a Japanese film I liked. It is called Ping Pong ピンポン. There are actually three films having the same title. I mean the 2002 one. It portrays well a sportsman's life, and the determination to win is inspiring.
