Secret Pond

When I went to a breakfast gathering in Little Tokyo, I made a stupid mistake. I forgot to turn off the headlight of a rent-a-car. It was a small car, Toyota Yaris. I rented this because I was told that it is the most economical car they have. However, I had to operate everything by manually. I didn't mind that, actually, I liked it. Three hours later, I came back to the car and found that the battery was totally flat. Even though, I had a little trouble, I was an optimistic about the incident. It was nothing to worry about, wait thirty minutes or an hour and the battery will be bring back to life. Therefor, I waited and waited. Thirty minutes passed, an hour, two hours, but still the battery was flat. Finally, I gave up and called auto club. Later. I found that the battery was old, It was almost time to change to new one. May be that the reason the battery didn't recover by just waiting.


  1. Hi Osamu san,
    I never knew that a car's dead battery would come back to life just by waiting. I thought you always had to restart it with battery jumper cables. I learned something new today. Thanks!
    I hope your recent exhibit in Gunma, Japan went well.

  2. Hi Enna

    Yes, if the buttery is good condition and if you forgot turn off head light 2,3 hours, it is most likely recover from it. you have to turn off every thing before wait such as a radio, headlights.
    The show in Japan went very well, much more than I expected. Thank you.
