Today is a holiday in Japan, National Thanksgiving Day. It’s not like American Thanksgiving Day, but it is nice it falls so close to that day. :-) I would like to watch Fantastic Beasts today with husband and son. Not sure if we will. It depends on husband’s schedule. (He words in a laboratory and frequently goes in on his days off! :-( But he wants to watch it, too, so we’ll see….
Leaving you here with some photos of drying persimmons. You will see these in the countryside, but I don’t really see them here in dowtown Fukushima City. However, I was riding my bike and found these, despite it being in the downtown area. The persimmons are left hanging for several weeks and result in a lovely snack during winter. A very traditional food.
Update: We had large earthquake yesterday in the Fukushima region. My family is safe. I will try to make a post about it for tomorrow!
