Tommy: As you know, our #1 is now in Japan. She is currently in Tokyo and this weekend, she is taking part in an amazing festival called SANJA MATSURI. She has been to the festival in the past, when she lived in Tokyo, but this time, she is being hosted by friends who live locally to it, and so she will get to be part of this amazing celebration. Apparently, there are as many as two million people who attend over the three days of the festival!
I wish I could have gone with her. You may recall that I have my very own Japanese festival wear, that she bought me on one of her previous trips.
The character on the back of the shirt says "Matsuri", Japanese for festival!
Anyway, #1 has said she will do a special post once the festival is over, probably on Monday. In the meantime, here is a pic of me for "Sporting Saturday"!
#1 sent us this photo, taken last nice from her apartment in Tokyo. It looks over the Sumida River to Tokyo Sky Tree:
