Kanrekiも悪く無い。

今年 2015年、1955年は生まれは全員、還暦(60歳)です。
沢山のお祝い/メッセージを頂戴しました。
ありがとうございます。
最低でも12回は夏を過ごしたいと思います。
と言っても12回しか無いのか。。。

This year (2015), everyone born in 1955 will turn 60, celebrating Kanreki.
I received a lot of message and congratulations from many people.
Thank you very much.
I’m hoping to at least see 12 more summers.
That said, just 12 more summers…

Here in Japan (among other Asian countries), turning 60 is a milestone age when one reaches their full cycle according to the ancient lunar calendar. Turning 60 is called Kanreki in Japanese. Reaching a full cycle, similar to a full minute, the clock starts again from the beginning. This is where the color red comes in. Starting a new cycle in life, like a newborn. AKACHAN in Japanese is “baby” which is based on AKA, Japanese for the color red. Red is the theme color for celebrating Kanreki.

現代的は Red Cap は良いですね。

Instead of a traditional top, I received a cool red cap.

This top and vest was made by Chico’s wife for Chico’s Kanreki. I borrowed it for the photo.
