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.

Our rooms without much view:


Yushima Tenjin (Shinto Shrine)
Buddhist tea shop at the temple...some tea with your Tao.


How to have a catch (or, "catch ball" as they say in Japan) when you don't have a yard.


Concrete Jungle

Parks and Recreation

If you build it (and fence it off), they will (eventually) come...

Market Economy in a Café Society

Hustle and Bustle

Sacred and Mundane

Make a wish

Buy a fortune from a shrine, but if it is not what you hoped for, tie it here and let the wind blow the misfortune away.

Even in Japan, all roads lead to
