My home stay in Japan

Sunday, November 28th, 2010


For my trip to Japan I stayed with Yuuko’s family in a suburb of Tokyo. It was about a 15 minute walk to the nearest train, luckily the weather was usually nice Fall weather and there were interesting things to look at as I walked. The neighborhood is very hilly, kind of like San Francisco.
