This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

The following day another one was spotted, down a slope full of brown leaves. Unless it perched on a branch it was barely visible. Like in the last picture
