85mmで熱海の散歩 / A photo walk in Atami, a tourist spa town in Sizuoka


気が付けばもう1カ月も前になる。

熱海で70-400mmを振り回してアタミザクラのメジロと遊んだあとに、レンズを85mmに切り替えて熱海の街を散歩した。

祖母が働いていた会社の保養所が熱海にあって、子どものころは年に2回くらいの頻度で熱海に来ていた。海に近い熱海銀座でスマートボールや射的で遊んだり、懐かしい記憶がいっぱいの街。

ホテルの撤退が相次ぐなどして一時は廃れそうになったこの街も、今はなんとか持ち直しているように見える。

それはともかくとして、上の写真のあの「実」である。一体何だ。これ、梅の木だと思ったのけれど、梅が咲いている間に梅の実がなるなんて聞いたことはないし、梅の実にしてはでかすぎる。

地面にもいくつか落ちていたけれど、結局、クエスチョンマークが頭の周りをぐるぐるしたままの状態で、その場をあとにした。誰か知っていたら教えてほしい。

It was in the first half of February. After I took photos of Japanese white-eyes and the early-blossoming cherries with the 80-400mm lens, I went for the 85mm prime lens and enjoyed walked around the town of Atami in Shizuoka prefecture.

When I was a child, my family often went to a facility in Atami, which was owned by the company my grandmother was working at. We visited the town about twice a year. I loved to stroll around the town and play games in the amusement centers along the streets. The town is full of my childhood memories.

Atami was one of the destinations for honeymoon in 1950s and 60s, but it gradually went out of fashion. A lot of hotels had been torn down by the end of the last century. So I'm glad to see the town seems to be reviving.

Anyway, the question is the fruit in the photo above. It looked like a plum tree, but I don't think it produces fruits when its flowers are blooming. Also, the size of the fruit is strangely large. Do you know what that is??

And I found the fruit on the tree. It looked like a plum tree, but what was that fruit??
