Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Happy Japanese New Year!

It was actually January 1st, but Sophie and her friend, Sophie volunteered at a New Year's festival at the end of the month.  Decked out in real kimonos compliments of their Japanese instructor they helped people with a  digital Taiko drumming game.  Ian and I watched Taiko drumming IRL and pounded mochi.  We also saw a Japanese Beatles tribute band.  I mangled a Totoro origami. The Sophies bought and ate a lot of Japanese snacks.  Something for everyone.  It was like Katsucon in miniature but without semi-nude cosplayers....we'll have pictures of those next post.

At least it's a Japanese watch.....
