We are alive and thriving.
Just got a minute before everybody wakes up and breakfast begins. We've been on a whirlwind tour for the past seven days. My sisters Suzy, Julie and their friend Marjorie got here to Tokyo last Saturday and we have been going non-stop since they arrived. We got back from a beautiful, beautiful trip to Kyoto and Hiroshima late Wednesday and will be leaving again this morning for an overnight stay at a Japanese Inn near Mt. Fuji tonight. Everyone has survived and thrived with lots of stories to tell. More photos will come, but here's one of all of us with Ken's brother Tokuya San and his wife Sumiko San and Ken's sister Takae San. This was taken last night at the New Otoni Hotel after a great family dinner. And one more of Julie, Suzy and Marjorie with our new friend at the Inn where we stayed in Kyoto.
