I’m on an early summer vacation at Honolulu thus my blogging habits has again gone sluggish. It’s been almost a decade since my last visit but the weather, the wind, the air; all seems forever lasting.
Since I’ve been doing a lot of Instagram photos lately, this is a post to share my photos, perhaps may show a glimpse of my daily lifestyle here in Tokyo.
This ceremony was first posted last year for our very first grandchild and time has come for our second grandchild, now turned over 100 days in which to celebrate her first taste of food – a traditional Japanese ritual called ‘okuisome’.

Rice cakes – we call it ‘mochi’ is eaten most everywhere in Japan at New Years.
Entertainment for your art appetite – These are ORIGAMI ARTS created by my 11 year old nephew. He seems to be gifted with craftsmanship and art talents to develop these ORGAMI ART quite easily with intense concentration.
Autumn seem early this year. The sizzling summer seem to have dissipated with this long autumn rain and here to notice the appearance of ‘chestnut’ here and there.
