The very best of luck in SF! After three months I bloused your blog again and that is the day you leave Tokyo... Have fun in Nevada (I saw one pic from Burning Man in a photo exhibition in Colombo - cool!)

Hi Mie:

I've been following your site for the summer, and in about 2 weeks I will be doing what you are (only in reverse - I am headed to Tokyo to work).

Best of luck in San Fran! I hope TT continues...

Reading the last few posts has made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You're beautiful child :P, safe trip.

Japan's loss is America's gain !!

Just curious...

Do you have to quarantine the cats when they get to the US? I heard it was something like 6 months. For the cats' sake, I hope this is not the case.

What is the reality?

Posted by: seaessay at August 23, 2003 06:55 PM

You're talking about the UK. US is like anything between 2wks - 4wks (I think). UKs system sucks bad! Hope they change it soon.

Mie -

I know you are long gone, but thought you might enjoy this anyway. It's not 宇治金時 (ujikintoki, shaved ice with matcha green tea, azuki beans, and shirotama mochi balls), but maybe next time you're back...

This autumn's special taste from Haagen-Dazs Japan is azuki (Japanese red beans) ice cream. The well-grained smooth azuki sweetened with brown sugar is ideal for sundaes, crepes and other desserts.

Azuki ice cream, Haagen-Dazs 290 yen and up. Available from September 4, 2003. See also

I have only followed Tokyo Tidbits this summer, but it sounds like you had a fabulous time. This chapter is closing, but the rest of your story is enriched because of it!
