Randomness

Sharing a few more pics from our trip to Japan.

In Odaiba, we stopped by a Toyota showroom and they featured these colorful cars with designs that were made by school children. They had a contest and chose the winning designs and put them on little Toyotas. This one caught my eye because it was cute and must have been done by a girl.

Here's a display of a (fake) sushi tower in a restaurant window in Osaka:

Glorious Mt. Fuji, as seen from a bullet train, after Typhoon Melor passed through:


Thousands of origami cranes at a memorial for mobilized students in Hiroshima:


And.....a can of SPAM that we saw in a Tokyo supermarket, selling for 662¥! Equivalent to $7.25US.


Hope to finish up and share some cards tomorrow. Feeling a little blah today with the cloudy weather and a mild case of acid reflux. Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!

  3. Hi Donna! My name is Amy -- I happened on your blog looking for blogs featuring Greeting Farm stamps. I just had to comment, because my husband got back from a business trip to Japan just today! He goes over twice a year or so for work. I got to go with him once and I loved it! We took the shinkansen but did not get to see Fuji-san due to the weather. So of course I must go back at some point!

    I love the car in your photo!
