Konnichiwa (hello), Tyson, Audrey, Charlotte, and Christine! We are the Parkers in Japan!
We are very sorry Tag is taking a very long time to get to Japan... But after all, Japan is the Land of the Rising Sun! In Japanese, Japan is called Nihon, which means "the sun's origin." As you might be able to tell from its name, it is very, very far from the US, where you live!
So, while we wait for Tag to arrive, we would like to introduce a little bit about ourselves and the place we live!
This is us: Mom, Yuki, Sunshine, and Cuddly Bear (from right to left)!
Yuki is 10-years old and is in 5th grade (Did you know that the school year starts in April in Japan?).
Sunshine (the orange cat) is a boy, and Cuddly Bear (the brown cat) is a girl. They are siblings, and they are now about a year old! We don't know exactly how old they are since we found them on the street and adopted them on September 2015.
Yuki, Sunshine, and Cuddly Bear are counting days until Tag arrives! Mom is a bit worried kitties might scare Tag... Please let us know if Tag likes cats or not!
We live in Kobe, Japan. Kobe is one of the biggest cities in Japan, along with Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto. It is a port city, and if you look toward the north, there are mountains, and if you look toward the south, there is ocean! We really got the best of both worlds in Kobe!
This is our neighborhood:
In our next post, we hope to share a bit more photos of our neighborhood and also about our everyday life! So, stay tuned! Until then, sayonara (good-bye)!
