Macha = real green tea

We went to a wonderful tea house it Kanagawa prefecture. It was only 300 yen (3 dollars) for a cup of macha and a traditional Japanese sweet. The gardens at this tea house were beautiful and the drizzle outside made the whole experience quite surreal.

I love Eiko and family!

I arrived in Japan on Sept. 21st and spent the next 5 days with Eiko, Hajime, Kimiaki and Yoshiko, my Japanese family. They are such wonderful people. I have only been in Hokkaido for 2 days now, and I already miss them!

I am trying to figure out how to post pictures on here...can anyone help me?

explanations first

Despite my personal objection to such modern contraptions, I have decided to keep a journal of my daily (or perhaps weekly) happenings. Please read and enjoy as you like and post a comment every once in a while to let me know you are still alive and well.

I love you all, my dear friends and family.
