Good Morning Japan

Good morning from Japan.  I was greeted at Narita airport yesterday by a massive hug from Nat and then we had a lovely day in the sunshine with a trip to Blue and White,
shopping (mainly of the window type) in Ginza and a fantastic strawberry cake to give us sustenance.

I am settled in at the lovely Ryokan Sawanoya and using their computer which types in English until I touch something.....but I don`t know what...and then it types in Japanese! Then I have to shutdown and start again. Hmm something has changed the font but I‘m not going to try pressing buttons。 
Today I am meeting Carin and we are going to have the day together.  She has planned for good and wet weather (it has rained during the night and is cloudy at the moment).
It is lovely to be back in Japan. The people are so friendly and helpful。


  1. Welcome to Japan! At least yesterday's weather was nice and the cherry blossoms hung out to greet you! I see rain is predicted for Friday but tomorrow should be better.
    Ah yes, computers that keep coming up with surprises ... you can now appreciate one more aspect of my life!

  2. Hi Lis,
    Sorry I missed you at crafty time out.I'm glad you have arrived safely in Japan.
    Take care.
    Love and hugs Georgie xx

  3. So the technology is keeping you on your toes, hope everything else is going well!

  4. Hi there!
    It was nice to see you and show you round Tokyo. I hope you have good memories of the things we saw, the Anpan Man nursery school, the ride on the Yurikamome monorail, the stroll in Hamarikyu Garden, the trip up cherry lined Sumida river on the waterbus, your sushi lunch, the 'shabby' old kimonos in Amuse Museum, the fortune telling paper, the walk to Uneo, the Italian dinner, the orange creme brule, the ride home on the tube.
    I hope I have not worn you out for your day out with Julie tomorrow. Have a great day!

  5. Wow, am I envious or not! but counting down...

  6. I am so excited for you, enjoy!

  7. I am not sure now what order I am reading in, but it all sounds wonderful!

  8. I'm slowly reading through the tour members posts. It was a memorable day spent with you on our first day in Japan. Hope you didn't have to moved seats too many times from Takao to Narita. I ended up seating by the door!


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
hugs, Lis x
