Welcome To Japan!


Welcome to Japan! We arrived in Japan around 3:30 Japan time.  We are very excited to be here! How about some first impressions!

The weather id definitely different! We left behind the beautiful blue skies of Eugene and entered the cloudy skies of Tokyo's humid and hot and rainy season. Oh well!

In the Tokyo part of Japan, there are buildings everywhere! And boy are they built close to each other! Speaking of close together, I took my first Japanese bath tonight. The bathtub is very deep but not very long, so my knees were pushed right up to my chin. What a kick!

The good news? Lots of bicycle riders. The bad news? Very few of them wear helmets. Darn! I saw my first shrine today: the Okunetama Shrine! It was established in 111 AD. Pictures coming! We had a wonderful Chinese meal tonight of noodles and chicken and dumpling for $21! Yeah!

That's it for now as I am about to fall asleep on my keyboard! More to come! Thanks for reading!
