Year of the Horse

1 Jan

It’s now 2014! あけましておめでとうございます! (Happy New Year!)

It’s the “Year of the Horse” on the Chinese zodiac.

I came to Japan in 1990. That year was also the “Year of the Horse”. That means I’ve been living in Japan for two complete cycles through the twelve year Chinese zodiac…this will be my 24th year here! Time flies!

    I came to Japan in 1953. I don’t know what year it was but I stayed until 1956 when I left for America.
