The owner of the Mikami bakery that I always go to, Saikichi Mikami, was a soccer club when he was a junior high school student.
I heard that shopkeeper was very strict when he was a junior high school student, and he was strict when he was instructed not to drink water during club activities, forcing a rabbit jump, and thoroughly performing a rat dance.
When I feel lonely in the corner of my heart and I come here at the same time as the quiet time of the restaurant, I eat samepan（shark Bread） at the dining space and listen to the memories of the past of the husband.
Sien Suikan Junior High School is 42 years old this year.
The junior high school now has a strong library club, but it used to have a strong sports club activity.
Mikami entered junior high school 31 years ago, and he worked hard in club activities as a goalkeeper for 3 years. He put his elbows on the counter and said nostalgically.
"It was fun back then. Maybe it was good that there was no smartphone. Soccer is basically a sport played outside, so I always care about the weather. I smelled trees when he went to school in the morning. It's that tree in front of the store."
"I don't know how it works, but it was wet when it was sunny that day and dry when it was raining. I used to check the weather like that every morning. "
"Was it good that you didn't have a smartphone?"
"Don't you think you'd smell a tree and check the weather if you had a smartphone?"
"That's right. It is a matter now."
"... THAT'S RIGHT..."
"Oh, I'm sorry."
"Wasn't there a TV?"
"The TV didn't tell me the weather when I was coming to school."
I pushed the fins of the samepan into my mouth.
"That tree smelled sweeter than usual that day."
