It’s been awhile since my last post, so here is my last quarter’s update …

My favorite was our 3-day trip to Sapporo in Hokkaido, an island to the northernmost part of Japan.

There we experienced winter wonderland, drank beer and ate delicious seafood.

Speaking of seafood…

My work had a fishing trip during the fall.

During Christmas, I felt very blue …

… when I went to witness the Blue Cave Illumination in Shibuya.

My night was also bright when I visited the Electric Town of Akihabara.

Furthermore, I went back to Asakusa …

This time during the night.

I got to the top of Japan’s iconic Tokyo Tower.

Back in the cold, we got to see an Ice Cave – a side trip after seeing Lake Yamanaka…

This is Lake Yamanaka…

… where people can get a good view of Japan’s iconic mountain, Mt. Fuji.

And lastly, we went to Tokyo Disneyland.

I hope, but can’t promise, that I will make individual posts for some of these travels. Until then, I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year!
