Ah, the beauty of a burgeoning summer. a waning spring. Japanese Sakura and a beautiful 300 year old Ginko tree. 

Happy Mother’s Day. <3

The beauty of May in Northern Japan.

Rejecting the industrial bonds thrown upon it. The tree burst forth in grand splendor!

雪嵐
悲鳴のような
強い風

Within the snow storm
Like a screaming or wailing
A strong wind does blow


I made a Haiku with students in art class.

Even though the king crab looks huge the taste is in the smaller hairy crabs, Kegani.  It was so good! I got huge ones too, I didn’t realize how much food a single crab could hold!  Three crabs fed 5 adults and 2 little people. Along with a lot of other good foods including various casseroles, fried shrimp, sashimi and more!  The crab was so good. It was a great meal to end my Hakodate trip.

The king crabs are huge and tasty. Don’t they look tasty to you?
