    We go LAX to narita usually.
    Hey, we know you have to say that for the IRS But I hope you will find a good balance - or a lot of overlap - between work and fun.

    Neither have I, but I'm told they're not uncommon in my family's neighborhood (Kinugasa, Yokosuka). I've never been to Japan later than August, always spring or summer. I just got off the phone with my mom though, that might change this year.

    I found out that Hidaka city, Saitama has the largest garden of higanbana (and this is a higanbana only type of garden) in Japan... and in this particular garden, higanbana seems to blossom from around mid September for about 2 -3 weeks.

    Goodness, can't Jon-san speak Japanese by now? Sara, I think you should be free to shop while Jon does the knife stuff. Daijoubu, I say.

    Nice higanbana photo!

    Jon is fully aware of my behavior, including bad shopping habit, and this makes it very hard to hide away to go shopping...... Jon wa kowai desuyo....
