I just found your blog around christmas time and quite like it, so I was a bit sad when it seemed like the posts had slowed down. Good to have you back and I hope you start feeling better soon!

I live in Tokyo too, but I'm too intimidated to brave Meiji Jingu around New Years, so I did my hatsumode at a small local temple. Your pic of the kayu looks rather delicious, which is extra impressive as it's probably one of the least photogenic foods i can think of...

Those ice sculptures are amazing.



Good to see another of your posts. Always nice to hear what's happening in your neck of the woods.

Take care:)

Just stumbled onto your blog. Great pictures!
My niece (from Calgary) spent a semester at a local high school in the Sapporo area one year, and she loved it! What are you doing in Japan, other eating your way around Toyko?

Hello, thanks for the link on your blog roll. Just wondering, in your virtual travels, do you (or your readers) know of any good women (or even better, bad women) blogging about Japanese politics... in English? There seems to be a dearth of good comment on the subject from the fairer sex, maybe the girls have got better things to do...


Ooh! A new recipe! I love it when you post recipes :)

Yes, when I visited Japan a couple of years ago, I was astounded by the Japanese love of pneumatic boobs too. Make that pneumatic, gravity defying boobs. Wonder if the artists who depict them are all single? :-p


Thanks Peter. I'm a rather sporadic poster these days but am hoping things improve soon.

Thank you Tamakikat, good to hear from you.

Hello E. Thai. I live here with my husband, who is Japanese.

Hi Carlyn, nice to hear from you.

Thank you for letting me know, Gabi. They show up fine in all browsers, so it might be a problem with your server.

Our Man, there just don't seem to be any women, good or bad, blogging about politics in English. And I commend you for making something interesting out of a subject that normally glazes my eyes over with boredom.

An9ie, the funny thing is, nobody seemed to find the giant boobs odd. The Japanese girl I was with didn't even know what I was talking about when I first mentioned it. I guess when you're constantly surrounded by images of enormous breasts you start taking them for granted. That would certainly help explain why I can't find a bra here that doesn't have an inch of padding...
