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.

Pretty green colors

What are these 2 up to?


  1. Hi, I will be in Fukoaka in November 22-24 2017, and am looking for a group or guide to help me see birds in the Hakata Bay area. Would you be in the area at this time, and/or available for a paid excursion? If you're not available, do you have any suggestions? Best regards-Kathy
