Re: Miraculous but Happiest Happening (とてもハッピーな奇跡)

[In English]

When I was making a usual routine exercise (walking) yesterday, I happened to hear a young woman’s voice, calling me “Haaaaai, Yoshi saaaan (^^♪”. She was a motorcycle rider. I was a bit ready for running away, being afraid “I might get picked up by her”.
She was definitely not a “flirt” but a charming woman who had kindly made a LOGO for my website in Mar., last year. She said, “I came here today in order to return a book that I borrowed from you.” She politely gave me back the book, together with a souvenir from the ancient capital. It was AJARI-mochi (a representative popular Japanese confectionery; a kind of a sticky rice cake).
Since I’m a heavy drinker, I have rarely tasted such confectionaries, but once I ate it, the mochi was much more delicious than I had imagined.
Thank you, Haruka san.

今日、いつものように日課の運動(ウォーキング)をしていると、たまたま「はーい、よしさーん」と若い女性の声が聞こえました。 彼女はオートバイのライダーでした。 「もしかしたら彼女にナンパされるかもしれない」と少し身構えました。
しかし、彼女は決して「ナンパギャル」などではなく、昨年の3月に私のウェブサイトのロゴを作ってくれた魅力的な女性でした。 彼女は「今日はあなたに借りた本を返すためにここに来ました」と笑顔で言ってくれました。 彼女は丁寧にその本を古都からのお土産と一緒に返してくださいました。 それは「阿闍梨餅(あじゃりもち;京都の代表的な人気和菓子)でした。

The origin of AJARI-mochi

What is AJARI?

The Japanese confectionery shop has continued from late of Edo Period (1856)

The mochi may match Matcha green tea very well
