I am back from Tokyo!! My childhood friend Kaya came to visit for a week and we went to Tokyo from Wednesday night until Friday night.
Unfortunately, as soon as we sat down on the shinkansen (bullet train) she realized she had lost her purse! She left it on the ground at Nagoya station. Thankfully, I was able to find a train employee and explained to her what had happened, and they called the station and they found her purse! All her money, credit cards and debit card, passport, keys, and walking shoes were in that purse! We were so thankful to God that the purse was found!!!
We had fun running all over Tokyo and seeing the sights. I admit that I didn’t take that many photos but Kaya did. I will have to steal some of her photos for this blog. Here are the few I took.
Shibuya scramble in the rain
Really weird CD over – that is an octopus on her head! EWWWWW!
Cute NHK character
Dinner with the De Boo family, missionaries from the Netherlands
Little 3-year old Julie/ Yulie (I don’t know how to spell her name!)
This little girl was SUCH a ham – she loved the camera!
Amazing view of Tokyo Tower and the skyline from their apartment on the 51st floor!!!!
With friends our last night in Tokyo – like my shirt?
With my adorable English students
Funny sign in Japanese – the toilet is saying, “Hey!! You forgot something!” It’s a sign reminding people to make sure they don’t leave things in the bathroom.
A team from LA came for a few days to visit – group shot at the Green Chapel (where I usually go to church)
Funny Engrish – I will enjoy a leg fashion!
