Friday Photo: August 2017

I've long been neglecting the blog and for those of you who may still be reading, I deeply apologize. Part of the summer was spent back in Japan, visiting friends in each of the locations we called home over our eight years. Loose plans are in the works to hopefully be able to return to...

Friday Photo: May 2016

There's been a decided lack of blog posts this week (sorry!) but I'll excuse myself by saying that I am off gathering new material. When life calms down again, I have more than enough to keep me in front of my computer screen for a whole new series of posts. For the moment, though, I'm... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: April 2016

I feel like a broken record, but this has been a busy month. Cherry blossoms, a trip to Kumamoto, an earthquake in Kumamoto, a fresh batch of visitors, and now, Golden Week. April is always a month full of festivals and flowers, but this year, it has seemed exceptionally packed. Somehow, amidst the chaos, we... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: March 2016

This month's Friday Photo almost passed me by. Here it is, Sunday afternoon already, and somehow I've managed to neglect the blog again. My picture archives are feeling similarly neglected, but by no means empty. In fact, this month I added what felt like reams of photos ... but because I sort them all by... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: February 2016

Oh my goodness, this month has been crazy. February might be the shortest month of the year, but it sure has been the busiest! I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I hope to remedy that in March. February is the lead-up month to Hina Matsuri on March 3rd. If you've followed this... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: January 2016

I wanted to start this year off with a bang, photo-wise, and what better picture to post than one of the most impressive Japanese landforms of them all? I love Mt Fuji. I love it in pictures, I love it in woodblock prints, but there is nothing that compares to the sheer thrill of seeing... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: October 2015

It's been another busy month, made more so by having my parents in town for two weeks. It was wonderful to be able to show them our life in Tokyo and it also allowed my husband and I to get in a kid-free weekend escape. We chose Gunma, a prefecture I hadn't yet been to... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: September 2015

We've just finished celebrating Silver Week and I have to say, mine was a tad disappointing. For a travel professional, that is. Even just for an avid traveller. Yes, sad to say, due to a variety of circumstances, I spent all of Silver Week at home. Thankfully, home has recently become the eternally-intriguing city of... Continue Reading →

Friday Photo: August 2015

In transferring my photos last week from my memory card to my (finally-arrived-and-set-up) desktop computer, I noted that I took around 1200 photos during our week in Tohoku. Yikes. How do I pick a favorite from that? Well, instead of sifting through all 1200 with a very critical eye, I just went with the one... Continue Reading →
