As I've told anyone within earshot, the kids will play baseball in Japan! More posts to come on that in the near future. (I figure that if Bobby Valentine was big in Japan, the kids will make a good impression.) What I know so far: no wood bats (unlike our league at home) and they use a "squishy" ball. Not sure what a "squishy" ball is, but I promise to let you know. For now, you'll have to make due with this:

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.
