We have two new additions to the mansion. They are turtles ( hopefully not teenage, mutant or ninja) from the east and west sides of America named Fuji and Sushi. We got them from our friend Daisuke who owns the reptile shop. I just had them out and was playing with them, Sushi escaped and bolted, he can move pretty fast!! And Fuji tried to bite me so I think he was hungry. He has no teeth but a tongue!
Also included in this Blog photos of Saturday night at Chatty, Mrs Nagata and Mrs Fuijiwara cooked up a storm and we celebrated everyones birthdays and Marissas going away (shell be back in a week!)
After an amazing, unforgettable year in Japan I dragged a way too heavy bag on wheels through Europe for more fantastic adventures. 5 years later I am off on a 9 week tour of SE Asia.

Close Encounters of the Bug KindAs the weather warms up we are noticing more and more bugs around the place. A waspy kid of thing flew into Marissas room the other night and we couldnt find it again until Marissa heard it buzzing around after shed gone to bed.
Close Encounters of the Bug KindWe then got out of bed and went into bug buster mode, Marissa armed with a can of hairspray and a wooden kokeshi doll and me with my camera! This is the end result!
Yum!Part of the million course meal we had on Saturday night! The brown sticks on the left are dried squid, actually not too bad!
