Caledonian golf



昨年カレド二アンのメンバーになってから初めてのプレー。
日本にいなかった、仕事をしていた。+2カ月前の足の怪我。

しかし、香港やイタリアと比べて朝早くから出て行かなくてはならなし、
帰りの道も日曜なのに渋滞するし会員なのにグリンフィー無料ではないし、
足が遠のく理由が沢山あります。

海外の不便、便利を知っていると疑問に思う事は他にも。

例えば、日本で住んでいる成城の町は昔と比べて、益々細切れに小さな家が多くなってきている。3代は続かないと言われています。


「散々税金を支払った後のお金でやっと手に入れた家。それを子孫に残すのにどうしてまた税金を支払う必要があるのだ?2重課税だ。」と口うるさいイタリア人。ですからイタリアでは相続税ゼロ。

まあゼロでなくても良いかもしれませんが、古い街なみが残ります。

香港はもちろん相続税は2006年に廃止になりましたからゼロ。最高税率企業においても17.5%です。と言うとみなさん驚きます。
どうして廃止になったのか?税金が低くても日本より経済が発展し国も破綻しないのか?学ぶべき所は多そうです。

またゴルフの話しに戻れば、当然夫婦どちらかが会員になれば配偶者は無料。
リモコン操作の電気カートなどヨーロッパの人に見せたら驚くだろうな~。
手引きが未だに普通ですから。まあ今日はこのぐらいで。


Ps.足の怪我も治りゴルフも出来るようになりました。ご心配をおかけしました。


I went to Caledonian Golf Club for the first time today after I became a member. This is because I was not in Japan, I was working and I had my leg problem for 2 months.
However if I compared with Hong Kong and Italy, I had to leave home very early in the morning, had traffic jam on the way back home although it was Sunday, and it was not free of charge although I am a member, so I know why I feel bothering. There are other facts that I feel doubt compared with overseas’ good and bad points.
For example, Seijo, the town I live in Japan, has much smaller houses with smaller spaces compared with the old time. They say the houses can not be carried forward to the third generation. [You got a house after paying so much tax. Why do you still have to pay tax for the house giving away to your children? It is double-charged tax] Italian critics say. So there is no inheritance tax in Italy. It doesn’t have to be non-tax but Italy has a lot of old houses. Of course, Hong Kong became no inheritance tax since 2006. The companies also only pay 17.5% max. tax, which makes everybody surprised. Why it stopped in 2006 and how Hong Kong can manage with lower tax and is in better financial situation? Japan has a lot of things to learn. I go back to the topic of golf. If one of the couples becomes member, another can play with free of charge. I think Italian will get so surprised to see golf cart with automatic remote control because pulling cart by hand in Italy is usual. Well that’s all today. PS. My leg becomes so much better that I can play golf. Thank you
