What is Miyabi?
- Miyabi is the name of my apartment which is actually 'Rakusai Miyabi Building' as its fullname.
Where is Miyabi?
- My apartment is located on Oenakayama, Nishikyo-ku which is a small area in the South-Western of Kyoto city. The nearest train station is Katsura St. of Hankyu line. It takes about 10min by bicycle or 25-30min on feet to Katsura campus, Kyoto University.
The Thais in Miyabi place had a great chance to run away from boring life in Katsura and tough reserch in the lab to 'Kumihama' (meaning to 'forever beautiful beach') which is the beach and bay located on the most North-Western of Kyoto prefecture as seen in the map below.
Why is Kumihama?
- Because Kimura-sensei, a high school principal in Uji, who is a leader of 'Kansai people who love Thailand club' has a house there which is his hometown. He asked me to take a short journey to his place in Summer, so I asked 6 members in Miyabi to take a rest there with Kimura-sensei.
First of all, let me introduce the members of this trip.

Let's start the 2-day trip with me...
We left Miyabi Bld, Kyoto around 9.00 on Sat by Kimura-sensei's car. It took around 3-4 hours to reach Kumihama. After buying lots of food from the nearet supermarket to sensei's house for our dinner,we had a late lunch (sarusoba) around 14.00 at Kimura-sensei's place. Then, we took a rest for a while and went out to the beach around 16.00. Nobody was at the beach and the sea wave was very big and strong. We had lots of fun there.
Let pictures explain our activities

Who is Mother? Who is Father?
After getting tired from jumping against the sea wave, we went back to the house and cleaned ourselves a bit before going to the hotspring (Onsen). At the onsen, there were also only us there, but the onsen was so good with an outdoor onsen. Afterthat, we prepared and had our BBQ dinner. Kimura-sensei brought one of very famous old Thai movie called Koo-Kum คู่กรรม เวอร์ชั่นวรุฒ-จินตรา, but the movie was fade away by our new activity, playing cards. We played cards until 4.30 in the morning.......
Playing cards all night จับหมู
On Sunday, we woke up around 10am and then cooking our Brunch... It was so hot that day. Eventhoug Kimura-sensei asked us to go out to do something at the sea, we denied that and continued palying cards (haha) as if we live in different aparments. We finally left Kumihama around 3pm and reached Katsura at 7pm....
Kimura-sensei with a new house's name called
