Hey everyone! I've been away for awhile, but I'm back! While I have been away, I've been out searching and exploring Japan with the Kid (Aeva), and we have found some fun and exciting places.

Over the weekend I met up with my friend Emiko and her daughter at her home in Kawagoe. I have always wanted to visit Kawagoe, so I jumped at the opportunity when she asked us (myself and my daughter) to visit her.

When we finally arrived here we quickly realized there weren’t any places to get pancakes in our area, so we settled on making pancakes at home. Months had gone by and… Continue reading Breakfast In Tokyo
