Konnichiwa, Reiko!

JAPAN | Sunday, 18 Jul 2010 | Views [1202] | Comments [2]

I hadn't seen Reiko since my last solo trip to Tokyo in 2005.  She hadn't even met Brandon yet.  Needless to say, she and I were both quite excited to see each other again!  We met up for dinner and drinks at a yakitori bar in Shibuya. They had an ... Read more >

On the Express Way, to your...wild boar?

JAPAN | Saturday, 17 Jul 2010 | Views [795]

Okinawa has one major expressway, running from Nago to below Naha.  We've heard all sorts of amazing stories about how it cuts down travel time and that it has practically mythical speed limit of *gasp* 80 KPH (to put that into perpective, that's only ... Read more >

Brandon had July 5th off from work, so we decided to put our annual Aquarium pass to good use and drove up north for the day. They have a few rows of seating in the large aquarium room and we decided to sit and watch the whale sharks and rays.  They ... Read more >

Happy Independence Day, everyone!  We celebrated at the Torii festival on Saturday.  Huge, American-style hamburgers were on the menu for lunch.  I made it through half of mine (about the same amount as a normal-sized hamburger would be) before deferring ... Read more >

East China Sea

Saturday we packed a lunch and drove up to Torii Beach.  (Yes, we know we have a beach three blocks away, but that one is a public beach.  Torii is on base and we rarely have to share the beach with anyone else.)  It was partly cloudy and very humid.... Read more >

So what do you do on a rainy Memorial Day in Okinawa?  You start preparing for your July Fuji hike, that's what you do!  Brandon brushed and moisturized his boots with the help of Doc Martin.  The boot on the left is the finished product (oh so nice-... Read more >

JAPAN | Monday, 31 May 2010 | Views [603]

Brandon and I have had Lit songs (four of them, including "Ziplock," to be more specific) stuck in our head all weekend since we learned that the annual SchwabFest, a festival held on - you guessed it - Camp Schwab, was bringing in the band ... Read more >
