Just a little something to get us started...
Tokyo, we have a problem: cat cafés in danger. This law takes effect the DAY BEFORE I get to Tokyo. I
promise to investigate and report back. (Personally, I am offended that
Huff. Post lists this under 'weird' news.) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/02/tokyo-cat-cafes-new-law_n_1315355.html
What you'll find on Storybook Days
The Home page displays all my musings on life in Japan and a few other things (baseball and children's books are distinct possibilities). For highlights only: "A Day in the Life (edited)." "Tabemono (Food)" is exactly that. "Big in Japan" is my completely biased and oversimplified list of what is popular in Japan, and "Kimono Count" is a day-by-day record of the people I see in traditional dress. "Editor's Delight" catalogs the unintentionally amusing and apparently quite complicated world of Japanese-English translation. "Uncle Tucker" tracks our sightings of a certain cat following us around Japan.
