In Japan, it’s officially Christmas! I am worn out! We last left off Sunday night, when I successfully completed my last 20-miler for Goofy training. The next day, Monday, Tokyo Hash House Harriers was having their Christmas run and party. It was my last free Monday before I leave, so I figured I might as [...]

Dan and I have been meaning to visit the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka (Tokyo), and our Christmas Adventure month seemed like a perfect time to go. Dan even surprised me by going into work late so we could spend all morning there! As some of you readers saw, a few entries back I posted a [...]

When I first moved here, I was shocked at how few baking things I could buy here. Our local grocery store has nothing! A couple interesting looking mixes, some sprinkles, some nuts. It was very disappointing. Luckily my wonderful bestie in Seattle, Kelsey, sent me muffin mix for my birthday, and all you had to [...]

To kick off our holiday festivities, Dan completely surprised me with a trip to Tokyo Disneyland! Because It was such a surprise, I didn’t have my camera with me or get any pictures. I had just had my job interview and I texted Dan to tell him how it went. He told me to meet [...]
