Took me far too long to figure out what Willy had to do with anything. Then I realised I could actually read every kanji in the clue…
21-down イクジ (i.e. 意気地, though I feel like there’s a few words that’ll fit)
Thus 29-across フトン
17-down ドシャ (took me far to long to remember that ド？ャ was a possible pattern as well as ド？ヤ)
Thus 11-down ジイ
Because it was one of the first words, and for the spaces, ブドウ and 赤い also fit.
It being just wine felt too easy.
Important part in a plan? .-.
It wasn’t exactly my plan, but once the letters start dropping, it’s pretty hard to stop solving.
I get the word, but I didn’t know it had anything to do with salmon and cod roe.
I noticed that that word fit in the place, but I don’t see how it has anything to do with あゆみ, thought it’d be something to do with 歩.
I thought it would have something to do with string instruments, since 張り is tension, and it says that it’d give a weak sound otherwise. Also, the fact that whatever letter goes there doesn’t matter, doesn’t help in making sure it’s the correct one when you’re solving this.
クリカエシ, but yeah.
I didn’t understand the clue completely, but figured it’d be a type of 天気.
Am I missing something here? Something used when going out?
Figured that’d be the word, but what’s it got to do with 地図?
Would’ve never gotten it.
Oh my god, is it hemorrhoids? Otherwise I don’t get what is the feeling that makes you want to leave your position.
These don’t mesh - フ and ブ aren’t equivalent. I confess, I’m a bit unsure of your suggestion for 8-across too, which is what lead to your answer for 16-down. Unless I’m misreading, the clue is “watercolours and oil paintings are here”, but your answer is “artist”.
While we’re on the subject, what does the clue for 16-across even mean?
Oh, of course. I’d completely forgotten mentioning that 31-down could be シェーカー as well as シェイカー…
but then I have trouble solving 5-down if it’s supposed to end in が… Don’t see how the answer could be anything but some type of gallery though.
7-across モリ (very unsure about this but 木を見て森を見ず works fine… I actually don’t see what else it could be, 5-down has just given me a lot of grief… maybe it’s something less literal related to the act of missing the bigger picture since it’s not a fill in the blank clue)
14-down ヨウギシャ ? Or maybe I’m wrong. Would 犯人と決まって result in an accused or a sentenced? And maybe I’m misinterpreting this, since I don’t get the use of と. Plus then it made solving 6-across more problematic.
