And it drops to ground.
The leaf has a unique shape just like a Japanese folding fan.

After harvest, the sand pear farm looks lonly.
But the farmers still have been busy after harvest.
They have to finish many task before winter, plant new trees, repair trellis...
And they will prune blanch when winter comes.

We usually call convenience store "KONBINI".
"Konbini Lunch" is a important item for convenience store in Japan.
Photo above is Onigiri.
It is called "rice ball" in English, but usually it isn't ball shaped.
I think Konbini-Onigiri is smaller than average homemade onigiri.
But Konbini-Onigiri has beautiful shape.
These are Makizushi and Inarizushi.
Makizushi is a rolled sushi.
Inarizushi is a pouch of deep-fried tofu(bean curd) stuffed with sushi rice.
These are Konbini-Bento.
Bento means packed box lumch.
I think average Konbini-Bento is oily in comparison with average homemade bento.
But it might good for young people.

QB House is a hair cut shop chain which is maneged by QB Net Co,Ltd.
The sales points of the shop are just 1000yen, and complete hair cutting in 10 minutes.
They does not do shampoo and the shave.
After hair cut, they clean our hair with a device just like vacuum cleaner.
When we enter the shop, we buy ticket with machine which is accept only 1000yen paper money.
The comb is made of regenerated paper, and use it only one time. If we hope we can get it.
In the shop is simple but clean.
I think the shop is popular among the married men.
