Hirabari is a sweet neighborhood southwest of Nagoya Center. We went there to visit Andy's brother and sister-in-law! It was the first time Andy had seen him since he'd moved to Japan 3 years ago.
We loved being with them so much, we left Kyoto a day early to have more time with them. Who knows when we'd be able to be together again?
Experiencing daily Japanese living was really exciting for us. Going to the supermarket, mailing letters, doing the laundry, cooking matcha and cocoa donuts in the microwave - it felt like a second home.
This Andy Fish (har har), Al + Tomoko's pet
He actually died the same day Andy and I left their house! :(
