Akiva and Kenaz came back to Yokohama, Japan to attend my old school. Every year they go to Japanese public elementary school for 5 weeks. Their Japanese skills always get improved, especially conversation Japanese. This year Akiva started saying “Sateto… (means “let me see”)”. I was surprised to catch him saying “mankind from destruction” while he was playing an alien with his niece. Akiva went to one night field trip in Miura ocean. He studied about community of living beach. Kenaz who did not want to go to school in Japan had a good time at school. Kenaz got along with his class mates who also like to watch and imitate Dragon Ball.
Akiva and Kenaz had a routine afterschool. They play baseball or shogi with my father. Finally he had a chance to teach things I and my sister did not want to learn. This year Akiva had a new routine to walk for 10 minutes to get a book store by himself and read comics there until dinner time.
Nearby my parents house has a small mountain which is very green (compared to Beijing). Last two weeks, Yokohama had rain every day. The trails were covered by new growing weeds. I describe this as swallowed by mountain. The shrine of mountain spirit was completely swallowed by mountain.
It has been raining every day. We went to Karaoke and comic cafe. The comic cafe had all you can eat soft served ice cream. Kids and I really enjoyed reading comics while eating ice cream.
Akiva and Kenaz played shogi with their grandpa.
Hiromi threw a BBQ party for us. Akiva helped uncle Takeshi. Akiva and Kenaz has cusins. Nahoko is at 6th grade. Shihori is a freshmen in high school.
