Those are hanging daikon radishes(Japanese radish).
They dry daikon radish under the sun before pickle them.
This is a scenery of winter.
By the way, I have often seen daikon radish hanging in farmer's garden, but I have seen it in road side first time.

Today, It is fine.
I took a long walk, and I found this persimmon tree.
Almost persimmons are not remain on the branch, dropped to the ground,or picked off.
And some were eaten by crow.
Time is running so fast.
We will be in mid winter soon.

I like Sashimi ( thinly sliced raw fish ).
But Price of sashimi is getting high in these days.
So I usually try to buy it at half price.
If you go to supermarket in Japan in late time, you may find sashimi sold at half price.
You can see two big Kanji symbol on the label on the package in this photo.
The word 半額 means half price. ( We pronounce it "HANGAKU" )
But I don't know actually what time they get the price down.
It is different in each days.
Of course If those sashimi are sold well, they never discount.
And, too late time those are sold out.
It depends on luck.

Here in funabashi, it is getting cold.
When I was about to go through in front of the shinto shrine, I saw ginkgo leaves falling by the cold wind.
Those were piled on the ground like snow.
I know winter has come here.
I took this photo in the western part of Funabashi.
