アブラゼミ – the large brown cicada

In summer, Japanese people are surrounded by sounds of cicadas.

Today, I found a cicada just after the eclosion in a nearby park.
アブラゼミ(Aburazemi; the large brown cicada) is very popular in Japan, especially in the urban area.

I glimpsed the crane at a construction site.

ミックスフライ定食 – A set meal of various fries

ミックスフライ定食(Mix fry Teisyoku) is “Teisyoku of various fries”. “Teisyoku” means a set menu and commonly consists of rice, miso soup, and some Okazu(side dish).
This Teisyoku’s Okazu are: 冷や奴(Hiya-yacco; cold Tofu), fried shrimp, fried onion, and fried pig meat.

At lunch time in Japan, many office workers eat Teisyoku. ミックスフライ定食 is a popular one.
I took this photo at Shinjuku.
