Gigantic Watermelons from Toyama – Joys of Summer

Today I’ve been to local shopping centre to return DVDs. Unfortunately I was 7 mins late, DVDs were treated as delayed, had to pay the arrear of 480 yen for the ones I’ve rent in 200 yen. Ouch! I’ve once paid 3000 yen! Such a money!

As it’s already so hot as 10:00am, went around the shops and found them.

Very big watermelon. Perhaps about 20 kg. It’s from Kurobe, if you know Toyama already, it’s a place of Kurobe Dam, and Tateyama Kurobe Alpen Route.

We have a custom of sending gifts (usually foods) each other in summer and winter, in my family between relatives. Former is called o-chugen and latter is called o-seibo. In such periods gift corners appear in shops.

One another shot.

We eat lots of watermelons generally in summer. But how long does it take if you get such a big watermelon?
