How is it already MAY?!?! That absolutely blows my mind! I can’t believe I’ve already reached this point on my exchange. I’ll say it once again, time is playing tricks on me over here.
Seeing as it’s already past midnight here I’m feelin’ a bit too tired for much more than a nice reel of photographs. Hope you enjoy this daytrip I took to Nikko’s Edo Mura (Edo Period village) with my host brother, Yasu, and his wife, Rumi. Very entertaining place! I saw six or seven different performances, played old-fashioned samurai and ninja games, and even ate beef & giblet donburi rice in accordance with the era; definitely a fun way to spend a day off of school. Golden Week, the famous Spring holiday week during which Japan practically shuts down for vacation, is finally here and I plan on spending my time quietly relaxing here in the countryside. I’ll try to fill you in soon.
PS. ONE WEEK UNTIL MY COUSIN, ANDREW, ARRIVES FOR OUR TRIP THROUGHOUT JAPAN!!!!!!!!!!
