Setouchi Art Festival

This was second time in my life to visit Naoshima in Kagawa prefecture. It is located in center of Seto Inland Sea “Setonaikai”. Also Setouchi Art Festival 2022 has been holding around the area. There are many displayed objects in islands. 

I brought my load bike and ride in the island from Kurashiki, Okayama-pref. It was a bit cold, but still nice weather to ride around the area. I posted many photos on Instagram like above.

Fake Cleats

During riding, recently I’ve got a cramp in my leg. I thought it was caused by long interval between riding, but I found an article about position of SPD-SL Cleats on binding shoes. If position is not well fitted with body and pedal, it may be reason to get a cramp in the legs.

Coindidentally found another article about fake cleats, and I checked my stock for cleats, since I brought the cheapest one  from Lazada in 2020, and merchants was in China.  Comparing with picture in article, my stock seems be fake:_(.

I’m ordering new binding shoes, so will repurchase cleats together….


1st Flight over my house

Finally I got Drone “DJI Mini 2” as posted last week. But there are many regulation in Japan to fly Drone. Under 199g Drone has less regulation than over 200g weight so far. Then I could make some test flights over my house with DJI Mini 2. Below is recorded video for sunset with Mt.Fuji. Needless to say I have never seen this view from my area. It’s awesome and feels enough worth to buy Drone personally.

But as wrote at beginning, due to regulation in Japan, I can’t fly even this lighter drone out side of my house in Tokyo. And public park, side of river and harbor in Tokyo doesn’t allow people to fly drone due to risk of damage to any stuff. So I need to go out from Tokyo to find best place to practice more….. 

Ordered DJI Mini 2

To learn feeling to operate Drone before use commercial Drone, Just ordered DJI Mini 2 as toy drone. One of the changing in Japan regarding law in this year, registration for toy drone will be required from June 20th 2022. And Remote ID to identify UAV in Japan will be also needed after June 2022. But if regitered before June 2022, Toy Drone (under 199g) will be omitted to have remote ID.

I’m looking forward to get and flight it soon. 

Learning from book.

As new job, I need to learn a lot of new things. Not only for just industrial buziness scheme, also technology as well. Because I didn’t major in Agriculture area, there are many new things for me. But it’s very fun to learn it.

During these learning process, reading book is the shortest way to quickly get knowledges. Of course, I can learn from colleagues and new enviroment.  Point in here is how much i can quickly be one of the matured person in work place. Otherwise, it’s also hard to get trust from them. Fortunetley there are many latest industrial and knowledges books in Japanese. But one thing I got aware is less book to learn technologies like how the logic works on precision farming by “Japanese”, although there are many Japanese papers in internet and also competitor’s developed products related precision farming or precision Agriculture technology, it’s called as “PA” which is I’m challenging.

In this situation, I got information about good books in English to learn that area. Unfortunetly there are many rich books in English for this area, not only this area, also for more other technologies area…. One of the books is below.

Practical Mathematics for Precision Farming (ASA, CSSA, and SSSA Books)

I don’t know why these kinds of practical books in Japanese are less… especially academical textbooks published by Japanese has only knowledge based book, no practical books. just reading knowledge based books does not make good memories on me. it’s easy for me by answering more sample question as repeated lesson.
