It was a first day to display and many people visited to look at.
I think that so many people will visit this weekend.
But there is only small parking space, about 10 cars.
Perhaps there will be a jam.
In this term, there are a lot of festival of Hina dolls here and there.
Others display only 1 set of Hina dools.

And I run into a wild squirrel on my way to the ski ground.
He appeared from the right forest with a big nut. He passed across the road and looked at me on the left side of the road. He dissapered when I passed by.
I was unlucky that I could not take a photo because my camera is in my bag and I kept driving.
If I had taken a photo, you could watch him ...
