Japan with Kids #3

2 Apr

Greetings from Tokyo! We made it safe and sound and have even experienced our first earthquake.We visited the Meiji Jingu Temple located in Yoyogi Park.  Nico decided to write a prayer for the prayer wall.  I don’t know what he wrote but he did ask me how to spell dream and mother.  The prayer wall.  Most people wrote wishes for loved ones or world peace.Other people were a bit more specific.Barrels of sake offerings for the enshrined deities.Our first kimono sighting in the Harajuku district.Visit to the 45th floor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Tower.  Great panoramic views of the city and even Mount Fuji in the distance.

    I mean, I want to have the body of a supermodel. I mean I want to look like a supermodel. Geesh. No, I do not want a skinny corpse delivered to my door.
