Yuko's trip.

Wandering the streets of downtown Tokyo.

A Mario brothers kart race!

New Year's Eve games night with family! Those bills are equivalent to ~ $10 each. Yuko's team lost $20...

The whole family at mom's place!

Yuko's neice has 2 kids now...

A trip to Hamamatsu (several hours south of Tokyo) on the slow train. Yes, it's slow, mostly because it makes many stops at all the small stations.

Train ticket, and courtesy jumbo coffee!

The view of Mt Fuji from the train, with its head in the clouds...

And meeting with the Girl Guide groups that she met at world events in Canada.

One of the leaders lives in this historic house on a large property.
