April 2009


+ East Siberia Area Japanese Speech Contest +

East Siberia Area Japanese Speech Contest was held on April 10th in Irkutsk Linguistic University. There were eleven speakers from eighth Universities. They were from Yakutsk, Ulan-Ude, Novosibirsk, and Irkutsk.

Their speeches were very interesting; however, actually I didn't remember the details about their speeches because I was very nervous not only as a host, but also as the judge and the questioner. The judge requires a lot of concentrations and I had to check their speech scripts when I was the questioner. The both of jobs were very tough work.

My co-worker told me that the best for him was just listened to their speech without the jobs.

I agree with his idea.



+ The BAIKAL +

I went to the Baikal Lake with Japanese teachers and students who were from Yakutsk, Ulan-Ude, and Novosibirsk. You know the Baikal Lake is a famous lake as one of the World Heritages and the specific feature is the beautiful water. The transparent degree is the highest score in other lakes.

It took about one and half hours from my dormitory by bus. While we were taking the bus, my student introduced about the Baikal Lake, the Legend, or histories about Irkutsk, in Japanese. It was really interesting.

This is the famous rock; it is called the Sharman's Rock, located in the center of the Angara River which is connected to the Lake.

The Sharman's Rock

The father Baikal (Lake) threw the rock to his youngest daughter Angara (River), for preventing her from to get marriage with Yenisei (River). However, it failed. Angara still now flows to Yenisei.

And, the rock has another legend. It is about extramarial affair investigation. A husband who got a suspicious from his wife has to swim to the rock. If he could succeed to swim to the rock, it means he "did" and he would be killed by his wife, wife's family, or the community. If he died to drown before to get the rock, it would be the judge by god because he "did."

What's that?

It's something strange, isn't it?

What the legend tells to men is, don't do the behaviour which get any suspicious!

By the way,
Do you want to see how clean the water of the lake is?

You can't.

Because...

The Baikal Lake

It has still frozen!



+ Snow Again +

April 20th, when I woke up, I found that the white world had come back again.

According to my co-worker who is Russian, maybe this is the final snow in this season.

Snow Again

Maybe...
