Some Pictures (because they are nice)

This is the rice near the Okada's home.

The sky that night was something else.

This is the rice we planted last month.

Nekobus in action!!!!

The massive box of cherries that my awesome neighbor Yuta gave to me. It seems his grandma lives in mystical cherry land, and sent him two boxes. He gave one to me, knowing that he could never eat them all in time on his own. He even apologized that some were too ripe! Awwww!

Toga was gorgeous for Leaver's Weekend...
