    I've had a lot of wifi/technology/camera issues which have made the blog difficult to continue to update. We are on our second day in Tokyo now but I wanted to try and catch up a bit on our last few days in Mashiko.

    Our final few days were primarily about taiko workshops and preparation for the big concert. We were Able to take a few side trips. We returned to the kindergarten where had so much fun the day before and the kids sang ...

    I'm falling a little behind with the blog so I'll let the pictures do the talking for this day. If you open up the pictures into a slide show you will find additional commentary for some of the pictures.

On Sunday we got to see one of the coolest things ever: Asimo. Asimo is a robot that was designed by Honda and we got to see him in action in a Honda museum! It's an eight minute clip and the Wi-Fi in our hotel sucks so it might not get up here but I'll try.

    Unfortunately, my new blog hit a snog...er.. a snag... when my SLR Sony camera just decided to stop working yesterday. So I am working off my phone, which is not the best camera. I'll be using some combo of my phone and iPad until I can figure out how to fix the camera or buy another.

    We began day two with a buffet breakfast at the hotel. The feature item was an outstanding, delicately cooked salmon. This of course, made me miss my daughter ...
