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 ...
