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.

July tanjokai in Imazu

There had been reports of terns flying over the lotus ponds in Imazu. Not a common sight in Fukuoka. On the 1st of July, during the meeting of the Wild Bird Society of Japan there was still one around.

Decided to stay in Fukuoka this summer?
