We love these umbrellas!  It’s certainly a cheerful approach to our typically British weather! We got our mitts on some Rainy Day Umbrellas.

Fruits and Food of Japan

23 June 2012
Just back from a fantastic trip to Japan, so I’ll be sharing some photos with you for my next few blog posts.
Japan has some of the most amazing cuisine! we tried a lot of things that we wouldn’t normally, such as chicken heart, cow tongue ! Here are some pics of some of the most beautiful food and meals!
We were so surprised at the price of fruit, but found out that in Japan the fruit that you can buy in the shops has to all be uniform sizes, so anything that’s not is used for juice! so the fruit has to be perfect!
 green pancakes!
 These mangos were arounf £50 EACH!!
 These are cherries, presented so beautifully in boxes.  they were £105.00 per box!!
 A home cooked meal of chicken stock or tomoatoe stock, with veg and meet, so delicious!
 green leafy cakes
 I stared at these in the window for a long time!

1000 Paper Cranes – Hiroshima

14 June 2012

As you all probably know I’m lucky enough to be doing a tour of Japan. Today we are in Hiroshima, where we visited the peace garden built on the site of the terrible atomic bomb.
Most people are overcome with sadness on visiting the site, but there is also a feeling of hope and prosperity. We learned a story about a girl who was affected by the bomb, she was caught in some black rain which was full of radiation. She battled her illness, but sadly died. During her illness she thought that if she could fold 1000 paper cranes ( origami birds) she might recover.
Now in the gardens there are lots of cases stuffed full of millions of paper cranes, all in beautiful rainbow colours and donated each year by school children. They were so beautiful and a symbol of hope and peace. Here are a few snaps x
