Cold again!?

14 May

Last week it had been getting warm. I was wearing short-sleeved shirts. It is mid-May after all!
But since Friday, it has been quite cold again! Today I wore a long-sleeved T-shirt under a sweat-shirt…and a wind breaker jacket. Feels like winter!

And there’s a typhoon in the Pacific Ocean near Japan…so it was raining the last few days. It stopped raining this afternoon, and it’s supposed to be nice weather for the few days at least.

Hopefully it gets warm again soon!


Did you hear about that big earthquake that struck China a couple of days ago?

Thousands of people died. It’s a tragedy.


Did you see the link in the righthand column of this blog (under the “Pages” category) for “My Website’s Main Page”?

Click that link, then click the link that says “Clicking here” to go to my Website’s other pages.
From there, you can visit My Guestbook (feel free to comment in the Guestbook…and under any blog post on this blog too).

If you can’t find the links that I just mentioned, you can just click this link:


I’ve lived in Japan since 1990, so of course I’ve been to many places around Japan (and Asia, and America) than just the ones I’ve mentioned in this blog.

Some other places I’ve been to at least one time:

All over Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama, Ibaraki,
Hokkaido (and the Sapporo 雪まつり (Snow Festival)),
Nikko (and the 江戸村 (Edo-Mura)),
Nagano (and the ’98 Winter Olympics there),

If you plan to visit Japan, and have any questions…maybe I can help.

    Thanks for visiting my site. Feel free to comment anytime.

    >Korea has been cold, too! And also a couple of rainy days,,,

    I’ve been to Korea a number of times…it’s always colder than Japan.

    Actually, it’s gotten warm in Tokyo again for the last few days…and the weather was very nice.
    But actually it’s started raining again tonite. (*_*)

    BTW, I really like Korean food. キムチ (Kimuchi), チヂミ (Chijimi), ビビンバ (Bibinba) (also known as 石焼 (Ishiyaki) in Japanese) are excellent.

    Have you ever been to Japan?

    Thanks for visiting my site.

    The famous 札幌雪祭 (Sapporo Snow Festival) is a wonderful festival in Sapporo (the capital of Hokkaido (Japan’s North island)) with many elaborate giant snow sculptures.

    It’s always held a week in February. The next one will be from February 5 – 11, 2009.

    I’m planning to visit Japan next winter and I’d be interested in seeing the Sapporo Snow Festival.

    When and where is that?
