We were invited to Shin's friend's place on the outskirts of Tokyo today for lunch and had planned to leave Jazz and Dixie at home. But at the very last minute decided to hire a car and drive so we could take Jazz and Dixie along. After lunch we took the girls for a walk in the local park already showing signs of spring!!!
The strange looking creature here is a "Tanuki" a racoon statue that you can see in varying sizes all around Japan at the front door of houses.
