    Vaknade för första gången utan den terroriserande telefon som vill ha upp mig mitt i den japanska natten, jippy.

    Undrade hur det skulle bli med dagens parad, Gion Matsuri som var tänkt att starta kl 9? Efter en hel del blåsande i natt så verkar vädret blivit betydligt bättre än prognoserna hur orkanen skulle dra fram. På frukosten berä …
