I'm happy to be a woman:)


On the last day of my summer vacation it was raining but it was a cool and calm Sunday.
I and my husband ate out in a Korean BBQ restaurant after seeing the women's marathon in Olympics.
After getting home I saw an American drama called “ Sex And The City “.I can’t seem to get their English because of talking fast. But I tried to listen to it few times and write down their lines of my favorite.
Even though I listened to it many times, I couldn’t get to unknown words. So I only wrote down them in Japanese as I was able to listen to.
At first I couldn’t get the charming points in this drama.
I thought I don’t like it so much. But bit by bit I’ve liked women in this drama.
And I started to enjoy seeing it.
I enjoy seeing four women who get along each other and they often eat something together while talking about various things for a long time.
I have an image relationships among women are harder than men’s.
But it’ s not bad.
We can enjoy talking about something even for a long time. Because we’re women.
If men join it, they would give up.
Women who live anywhere and in any period are talkative.
I’m glad to be a woman because women like talking.
By the way this picture is a picture that I took in Jindaiji of Tokyo.

Hallo Ayamlin:
Jindaiji ('Deep (jin) and Great (dai) Temple' - in fact, the words are an abbreviation for Jinja Daio, the god figuring in the founding legend) - a buddhist temple in Tokyo - is that right (Wikipedia says so)?
The picture is VERY beautiful!
I did not like Sex and the city and did not watch it, not because they touched tabu themes, but because I think the themes were handled in a too striking and trivial manner. I am more intellectual in some sense...
I think that it is VERY good that woman talk about many things. Definitely! :D

Hi maria!
Thank you for your nice comment as usual.
I'm pleased you check the Japanese word " Jindaiji " on Wikipedia.
Thank you for being interested in Japanese:) I'm really pleased.
Jin-Dai-Ji has 3 Chinese characters. Yeah, Jin means deep, Dai means great and big and Ji means temple.
Actually I totally didn't know the name of Jidaiji comes from Jinja Daio( it means shrine's king).
Thank you for teaching me it, maria:) and I'm pleased you like this picture:)
By the way about Sex and the city,
yeah, I know how you feel.
at first I thought this drama is a story about just sex.
but it wasn't.
it's a human drama. the main story is female friend ships.
women in this drama are worried about various things.
Per say, marriage, job, cancer and all that jazz.They talk about them among four women.
I like the four women.
seeing the drama, I started liking her. Because I partially know how they feel. Because I'm a woman, too:)

Clothes that women wore are called " Yukata " in Japan.
