Rice field 

The day before yesterday I visited my friends house in Nagasaki prefecture.

She told me how to make Koji (malted rice), which is used to make like Miso and Shoyu, etc.

She is making Amazake from it.

She has a rice field in back of her house.

Some people helped the rice-planting.

The pictures of the rice fields are the  neighbors ones that already finished the rice-planting.

And I saw fireflys around the river near her house.

I got just one of them in my picture, because it is difficult.

But there were many fireflys, and they were very beautiful.

Matsuura historical museum

I went to the Matsuura historical museum.

The Matsuura family governed the Hirado Domain as lords for nearly 700 years.

Many historical documents about Matsuura family and Hirado are in the museum.

The musum building used to be the real Matsuura familys house which was made in 1893.

The stairs and gate in the photo has two kinds of steps, the wider one was for horses.

In one corner of the museum, you can try to buckle on armour and a helmet.
