Ahna visits Japan!

It's been a long while since I posted, no good excuses really. We've been enjoying the recent change from winter to almost spring, plum blossoms and sun are a nice change from frickin freezing cold! February 20th marked 1 year in Japan for us! We had to work, so we didn't really celebrate. It's crazy how time has flown and soon we'll be packing up for another great adventure before returning to Oregon. More details to come on that later...
We had our last visitor- Ahna! come visit last week! We packed in lots of fun and sightseeing in 5 days.. here's just a few pics from her visit;

In Kyoto-

At the monkey park in Arashiyama, Kyoto

Bamboo forest fun!

Nara- Todaiji- big buddha

Headed to the Shittennoji market with the Obaasans :)

In Kurama- before it started to snow and before we soaked in the onsen (hot spring)



Gotta try takoyaki if you're in Osaka... aka octopus balls.
