Miniature sunflower

mini-himawari-junoir.jpeg

My miniature sunflower started to bloom after the rainy season!

I sowed the seeds in April, but they didn't grow very well and I thought I had failed.

This flower is about 7 cm long and the grass is about 30-40 cm tall, very compact. Even though it is a sunflower, a small flowerpot is enough.

I'm looking forward to seeing many more of these sunflowers bloom during this summer.

New release - "Wavelet Voice Sonogram" iPhone app.

icon-wvs_v100.png

"Wavelet Voice Sonogram" has been newly released now!

"Wavelet Voice Sonogram" is a new sound spectrogram app that performs time-frequency analysis of acoustic signals.

A spectrogram is a graph that shows the results of a sound frequency spectrum analysis with time on the horizontal axis, frequency on the vertical axis, and signal strength in colors.

This app can perform acoustic analysis and display the spectrograms by using three time-frequency analysis methods, Wavelet analysis, Octave Band analysis, and FFT analysis.

It can record sounds from iPhone built-in microphone. While playing the sound, you can search for the desired sound and analyze it.

This app allows you to easily perform acoustic analysis of speech, instrumental sounds, noise, and more. It can also be used to learn elementary speech analysis.

Yoiyama on Ato-matsuri of the Gion festival.

It was the last day of the Gion Yoiyama, so I went to the festival area for a bit. There were quite a few spectators, so I left early.

The dragon head attached to the ship head is lacquered with gold and shines. With this, they have finally come close to the original model of 150 years ago.

Yamaboko building for Ato-matsuri of the Gion Festival - 3rd day.

The Yamaboko building for Ato-matsuri of the Gion Festival is progressing smoothly.

This is a shot of the North and South Kannon floats before 9:00 this morning. Both mountains were already covered with lush green pine trees.

Gion Yoiyama under COVID-19

g202101.jpg

Yesterday is Yoiyama attracted only a few people and seemed to be calm.

The music stopped at 7:00 p.m. and the lanterns were turned off, so there were probably not many tourists from far away.

I wonder what the big crowds of Gion Festival Yoiyama were like two years ago. If the situation were the same today, it would be a terrifying scene.

The image above is a scene of the musical performance of "Tsukihoko" float.

When I found the scene where they were performing while wearing masks, I was reminded that it was still a festival under the Corona disaster.

Gion-bayashi music was being played, creating a bit of the atmosphere of Kyoto Gion Festival.

The three-day "Yoiyama" night festival starts today. But all events such as the musical performances end at 19:00, and the lanterns are turned off. It seemed unreasonable to expect the original atmosphere of the festival. This will be the only way to prevent COVID-19.

In this morning, the framework of "Houkaboko" boat in Shinmachi-Shijo was almost assembled.

The cabin and wheels will be installed and the decoration will be applied.

Surprised at the height of the float. It is 24.6 meters long from the ground to the spearhead.
