お月見 (Moon Watching)

Last night was the night of the September Full Moon. In Japan, I am told there is a tradition of eating special rice cakes while admiring it. Since yesterday was such a special day, along with it being my last time seeing a certain elderly student, I was gifted with a box of the appropriate sweets and a can of green tea to go with them. However, due to the overcast weather and plans to move the next morning, I couldn’t spend as much time watching the moon as I would have liked.

Far Off City at Night

At night you can just see the tallest of buildings from downtown Nagoya from my neighborhood.

An Odd Display

In Toyohashi, one of the displays doesn’t really scream Christmas, persay.

While undoubtedly pretty, roses are one of the last flowers I think of during the holiday season.

Although now that I think about it, it is pretty darn Japanese, since Christmas is more of a couples’ holiday (like American style Valentine’s day). Families of course celebrate, especially if they have kids, with special foods and gifts.

However, since Christmas fell on a workday, it was pretty much business as usual.

Tiny Glow

One night, after work, my friend and I spent some time admiring the illuminations at the station.

We also took some pictures together, messed about in front of an fortune-giving colour-changing cat, and exchanged sweets.

We went a little crazy with the pictures, but it was totally worth it.
