Manhole Covers in Shizuoka Prefecture 49: Chibi Maruko in Shimizu Ku & Aoi Ku in Shizuoka City!

Chibi Maruko is the heroine of the Chibi Maruko Chan manga series known all over Japan and far beyond overseas.
It was created by Momoko Sakura, born miki Miura(8 May 1965 – 15 August 2018), a resident of Shimizu Ku (formerly Shimizu City) in Shizuoka City. By sheer coincidence the laying of thetwo new and unique manhol covers had been delayed and were installed just after the sudden death of artist.

The first was laid on Sptember 6th in Shimizu Ku just in front of the west exit of Shimizu JR Station.

Chibi Maruko wears a pink holiday outfit on this one.

The background features Mount Fuji which you can see from Shimizu JR Station by clear weather.

Also in the background are tuna and the sea as Shimizu is a major fishing harbor with the largest tuna haul in Japan!

The other one was laid on September 7th at the entrance of the waking alley behind Cenova Deppartment Store in Aoi Ku!

It represents Chibi Maruko in her primary school uniform and headwear!

The background shows Mount Fuji and the Abe River!

And the tea fields, for which Shizuoka is so famous!

Remember these are the only samples! Unique

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Walking to the Izakaya the Japanese Way: Geta/Japanese Clogs

Not so long ago, the sound of wooden clogs (geta/下駄 in Japanese) could still be heard at any time of the day and night in any season in cities as well as in the countryside.
This is still mentioned as one of the sounds that older Japanese miss most in modern life. A traditional saying in Japanese says that “You do not know until you have worn geta.” meaning that you cannot tell the results until the game is over.
Chefs were wearing them at work inside izakayas and sushi restaurants. Now they wear graceless white vinyl boots.
Interestingly enough, by ignoring geta in favor of Western footwear, the Japanese are not doing a favour to their own health. Instead of being constricted inside shoes with the consequent skin problems during the rainy season and sweaty socks to wear with them, geta allow free movement of the feet in the most natural environment. Contrary to belief, walking with the skin in direct contact with a wooden or lacquered surface does keep the feet at a comfortable temperature, even in the snow.
Moreover, good Japanese-made geta cost an average of 5~6,000 yen (50~60 US dollars), which make them cheaper and far more durable than Western shoes! They can be easily worn day in day out for up to 10 years according to traditional makers in Shizuoka Prefecture!
The great majority of modern geta are made abroad, especially in China these days but traditional manufacture still survives in Japan.
The City of Fukuyama in Hiroshima Prefecture produces 60% of the national output. Hida City in Oita Prefecture is also a major producer.
Traditional and high quality geta are especially made in Fukushima, Nagano, Niigata, Akita and Shizuoka Prefectures.

Geta are sometimes called wooden clogs in English because of their resemblance wit clogs and flip-flops. One could describe them as a kind of elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep well above the ground. They are worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata but (in Japan) also with Western clothing during the summer months. One can still see people wearing them in rain or snow to keep the feet dry, dur to their extra height and impermeability compared to other shoes such as zori.
There are several styles of geta. The most familiar style in the West consists of unfinished wooden board called a dai (台, stand) that the the foot is set upon, with a cloth thong (鼻緒, hanao) that passes between the big toe and second toe. Although there is no need to wear socks, apprentice geisha (also called “maiko”) wear their special geta with tabi (Japanese socks) to accommodate the hanao.

Ladies will often add a protective cap called tsumakawa (爪掛) to protect their toes from the rain or mud in inclement weather.
The supporting pieces below the base board, called teeth (歯, ha), are also made of wood. Cheap clogs are made with cedar wood (杉, sugi), whereas high-quality geta are made of very light-weight paulownia (桐, kiri) imported from Northern Japan.
The teeth are usually made separately and fixed to the base board later (Funageta/船下駄), whereas more valuable geta will be carved out of a single block called (Okaku/大角).
Although great craftsmen are becoming scarce (there are only five recognized in Shizuoka Prefecture in spite of their fame), geta can and usually are suggested to be made on order, so as to perfectly “fit the feet” of its wearer.
Such footwear is becoming increasingly popular abroad where more and more people have recognized not only their practical, health and ecological values, but also for their decorative and fashion merits.

The dai may vary in shape: oval and narow for ladies to rectangular and wide for men as well as in color: natural (harigeta/張下駄), lacquered (nurigeta/塗り下駄) or stained.
The teeth of any geta may have harder wood drilled into the bottom to avoid splitting, and the soles of modern clogs of the teeth may have rubber soles glued to them.
The hanao can be wide and padded, or narrow and hard, and it can be made with many fabrics Printed cotton with traditional Japanese motifs is popular. Inside the hanao is a cord (recently synthetic, but traditionally hemp) which is knotted in a special way to the three holes of the dai. The hanao are replaceable, although breaking the thong of one’s geta is considered very unlucky!
Maiko in Kyoto wear distinctive tall geta called okobo. Also very young girls wear “okobo”, also called “pokkuri” and “koppori”, that have a small bell inside a cavity in the thick “sole”/dai. These geta have no teeth but are formed of one piece of wood. They are carved in such a way as to accommodate for walking.
Japanese professional sumo wrestlers in the lowest wo divisions of Jonokuchi and Jonidan must wear geat with their yukata at all times!

Various types of geta for the true collectors! (this list is far from exhaustive!):
-Sokugeta/足駄: real antiques as these were worn between the Heian Era and Edo Era! They became the symbolic footwear of students in meiji Era
-Yama Geta/山下駄: Square mountain Clogs made of paulownia wood and worn at the beginning of Edo Era. When made with cedar pine wood, they are called Yoshiwara geta/吉原下駄 as revellers in the Yaoshiwara Distritc used them on rainy days.
-Pokkuri Geta/ぽっくり下駄 worn by maiko, geisha and young girls, generally higher and decorated with golden motifs.
-Robou/露卯, Yanagi Geta柳下駄 worn in the early Edo Era.
-Uma Geta/馬下駄, square and made of cedar pine wood. “Horse Clogs”, called so because they sound like horse’s hooves on paved streets.
-Koma Geta/駒下駄, most common all-weather clogs until before the Meiji Era.
-Kiri Geta/桐下駄, high-quality expensive clogs made of paulownia wood. Originally finished with black lacquer.
-Odawara Geta/小田原下駄, very popular among harbor workers and fishermen in the 18th Century in spite of their high price.
-Ippon Geta/一本下駄 or Tengu Geta/天狗下駄, a clog with only one ha/歯/”tooth”. Both worn by kids and adults.
-Taka Geta/高下駄, very high clogs
-Bankara/バンカラ/Narrow clogs with high teeth, popular with older time students.

SHIMIZU S-PULSE MEMBERS INTERVIEW: KAZUYA MURATA

The Smiling Teacher!

Ever-smiling Kazuya Murata, born on October 7th 1988, is a highly popular senior member who has already played for Shimizu S-Pulse since 2013.
Born in Moriyama City in Shiga Prefecture he attended Yasu High School, an establishment well-known for its soccer/football club in Shiga Prefecture, and later attended Osaka University of Health and Sports Sciences where among others he was awarded a Physical Education Teaching License.
He first joined Cerezo Osaka Soccer Club in 2011 before moving to Shimizu S-Pulse two years later. He is married and has a 3-year old son.

Question: What was the main difference for you between your native Shiga prefecture and Shizuoka Prefecture?
Kazuya Murata: I can’t say there were huge differences to overcome as both share a welcome “country” atmosphere. I actually feel very comfortable in Shimizu and Shizuoka Prefecture with its nature spread along the sea and deep inland. Although Shiga Prefecture has no sea shore, the big Lake Biwa certainly makes it up as an inland sea! It is certainly a great region to live in a professional sportsman with a family!

Q: What about the local food, then?
K M: I must admit that not being born near meant I had eaten almost no sushi until I came to Shimizu. I was a big meat eater and it did take a long time before I started enjoying fish and seafood. On the other hand I must admit that coming to Shizuoka contributed to a far better balance in my daily diet!

Q: Quite an interesting comment from one who knows a fair bit about health and sports Sciences! What about vegetables, then?
K M: (laugh) If it were not for the wife, I would be hopeless. I understand I need them and fortunately my better half concocts food with as much vegetables as possible, cutting them in small pieces and including them in soups, especially minestrone, and curries in particular!

Q: How do you spend your free time?
K M: I spend as much as time as possible with my young son watching him growing and trying to contribute as much as possible to his education.
I keep visiting regularly schools to gain as much experience as possible for when I retire from soccer and becomes the teacher according to my studies at university.

Q: What do you usually drink with your food?
K M: as I can’t drink any alcohol, I consume green tea, sports drinks, although the latter might not be that healthy (laugh)!

Q: Would you like to recommend a restaurant to our fans and readers?
K M: We mentioned in our private conversation prior to this interview a great Osaka-style Takoyaki restaurant called Ebisu in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City whose owner has become a personal friend. Another fine place, inexpensive with nice food and cozy atmosphere, is Onion in Shimizu Ku! Thinking of the name, I feel less guilty for not eating enough vegetables!

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

SHIMIZU S-PULSE MEMBERS INTERVIEW: KO MATSUBARA

A young man with an ambition!

Ko Matsubara, born on August 30th 1996, is still a very young (almost 22 years of age) Shimizu S-Pulse player but is already an established member/senior member who has started in most matches so far this year.
He is also a Shizuoka prefecture home-grown player who was playing for the Jubilo JR Iwata Youth team when attending Hamamatsu Kaiseikan High School in Hamamatsu City.
He first appeared for Shimizu S-Pulse in 2015 and has already been selected 3 times for the J League Under-22.
Originally an attacker, he is very versatile player who converted to a dangerous attacking left back constantly taking part in counters apart of being a very effective defender.

Question: Ko, would you care describing yourself?
-Ko Matsubara: I am still young and not very talkative. I still have to learn before expressing myself at ease. One thing is sure: I do not like to lose and may have to control my temper on the pitch.
Off the pitch I concentrate on my interests and am a quiet person.

Q: How often do you go back to your birthplace in Hamamatsu and do you still visit your schools?
K M: I do go back home when on holidays, which means basically only during the off season. I do pay a visit at least once a year to my schools to keep the links with my youth and help out.

Q: What are your hobbies apart of soccer/football?
K M: Computer games, definitely. I play them on my smart phone and easily get lost into them. Recently, after an acquaintance offered me some, I taken a liking to reading books. Being a professional sportsman I do have to take a lot of rest in between exercise, games and physical care, so these hobbies are easy to enjoy.

Q: What fashion do you follow?
K M: Formal or casual, depending on the occasion. I prefer slacks and shirts of the latest fashion. I must admit I do spend quite a big amount of money on clothes as I enjoy being well-dressed. You could say this is another one of my hobbies!

Q: What food do you particularly enjoy?
K M: Sushi and seafood, especially raw seafood! I am always on a look out for a new restaurant, so I would be grateful if you could introduce me to one! Because I have to take care of my physical condition I have started to appreciate vegetables. I have recently developed a special liking for broccoli!

Q: What is your ambition as a soccer/football player?
K M: As high and as far as possible! I know I still have my future ahead of me, but I would like very much to play abroad although that might imply quite an amount of dedication and learning. Naturally, my dream would be to play for the National Japan Eleven!

Q: Dear Ko, thank you so much for sparing your time and I wish you all the best! And who knows, I might have to interview you for a bigger reason one day!
K M: You are most welcome!
