Just a few things…

25 Jul

Just a few random items…

  • My second daughter will return home this evening from her 林間学校 (field trip) to 新潟 (Niigata). 🙂
  • A couple days ago, there was another big 地震 (earthquake) in 岩手県 (Iwate Prefecture)…the same area that had a big earthquake last month (you can read my post about that earthquake here).
  • A few more people have agreed to do interviews for my site. I’ll post them as soon as I get their responses to my questions.
  • Did you notice that anytime you see 漢字 (Japanese kanji characters) on my site, if you hover your mouse over it, the ふりがな (kana characters that show the proper reading of kanji) appears? Does this help you?
  • What are you favorite places, events, things to do in the Tokyo area? Just wondering.

    Thanks for visiting my site and adding a comment!

    You’re right! Tokyo’s nightlife goes til morning. And there are more restaurants in Tokyo than any other city in the world…and the food and service are excellent!

    And there are countless museums here.

    Thanks for commenting.

    I love 花見 (Cherry blossom viewing), 祭 (Festivals), and 日本料理 (Japanese food) (including 寿司 (sushi)) too!

    Maybe one-day I can show you my favorites of all of those!

    From the perspective of a relatively newcomer to Tokyo and Japan (only 6 months+) from the Great White North (aka Canada), my favorites are:

    Events: Cherry Blossoms (hamani) and festivals (matsuri)
    Places: Roppongi Hills, Shibuya
    Things to Do: Riding the subways and trains (except when very crowded), eating sushi (and basically all Japanese food)
