Yesterday I went down to a place called Kamioooka. It has three of the letter "o" because it has HUGE hills! (In Japanese it's 上大岡 in kanji, or かみおおおか in hiragana.) We watched a family receive baptism there. They were so happy!
There's a squirrel zoo in the next area over from us. We've been talking about going there some P-day.
They have waterproof pocket notebooks at the dollar store here in Japan. They really work. You can use them in the rain and they don't get damaged at all. They do take some time to dry, though.
