Wow its been more than a month since I last blogged. A lot happened in that time with school ending, a trip home and Jazz being in season so we didn't go anywhere with the girls. Yesterday Shin drove us to a great huge park, Showa Memorial Park. We had to pay to enter but inside they had a great series of dog runs, beautiful gardens and lots of green grass!! Yes that's one thing I miss living in Tokyo - big open grassy spaces. The girls had a great time and made a few new friends in the dog run. We then sat out on one of the lawns for lunch and meet another couple with two beagles. We were lucky to beat the rain which set in just as we were leaving. It was nice to be back out exploring new places with the girls again.
