Our niece is in Japan for ten days and is blogging about it, Dreaming In Red.
Normally I haven't read her blog because we live in the same house and that seemed odd. But since she emailed me and told me she decided to blog while in Japan and that she was using photos (photos always get me) I dove in.
I've added her link on the right hand side, but just for her tour.
This is her 3rd or 4th trip to Japan. She lived there and taught English for 9 months a few years ago. I think she is reincarnated from somewhere in Japan. She has an natural ease and affinity for all things Japanese.
So, check her out! Dreaming In Red
