We are excitedly preparing for our trip to Japan! Mom and I (Megumi) plan to blog from Tokyo and Kyoto if possible. It has been about twelve years since we were there, and I am looking forward to seeing what has changed and what has stayed the same. There is such an interesting intersection of respect for the past and charging into the future there. It will be great to see our cousins and aunts, and I think a little sad because my dad is no longer with us. But we are sure to have some funny and interesting stories to share with you! And we will also be looking out for new paper, fabric and craft ideas, of course!
