Yesterday was such a busy & packed day.  It was one of the main days of my vacation where I had to take care of some urgent/serious family matters.  By the time we got back to our hotel room later that night, both my travel companion & I were so exhausted that we fell asleep almost as soon as we changed out of our street clothes.  We were opening some gifts given to us by my cousins & my uncle, & after moving all the stuff off our beds, we were watching some TV before getting ready for bed.  Before we realized it, we were fast asleep.  We were so tired, we didn’t even get to brush our teeth or anything like that.  Sooooo… I didn’t get around to posting any entries yesterday.  Oops.  In the meantime, here are some photos of the gifts I received:

Limited Edition Mikimoto brand 2012 sterling silver photo frame

mosquito repellent

fish flavor soup base, in a dried powder package

variety pack of instant ramen

Finally, I will end this post with a picture from the hometown my dad’s family is from…YOKOHAMA (which is 45 minutes south of Tokyo by subway train):
