Came home to find that the cat had evacuated every orifice all over our bed and several spots on the bedroom floor. And our scrupulously tidy cat-sitter hadn't noticed. I mean, she sleeps in the guest room, not in our room; I'm just cranky, because we're exhausted and it's sweltering hot and we just had to strip and remake the bed -- as well as immediately unpack completely and put everything including the hiking packs away so he won't pee on them. We'd put a tarp on top of the bed before we left, but he got through it. Ugh.

On the bright side, none of the ceramics we bought as gifts seem to have broken in transit!

I'm writing this on the plane home. The International Date Line means that we'll land an hour before we took off! )

And on that note I report that we are now sitting in the Toronto airport, waiting for our last flight home! I still have a couple of days in Tokyo to discuss, but right now all I want to do is fall into my own shower and my own bed forever...

Mount Fuji!

Kawaguchiko is not actually a very pretty town, unfortunately. But we have still had a great time! )

I'm a couple days behind on blogging, so I want to get this posted. We go home tomorrow!

We are perfectly fine! But our plans have had to change... )

"Well, a typhoon is a quintessentially Japanese experience," I remarked to Geoff.

oh, also

Geoff is blogging our trip at his own journal, if you're interested. He and I tend to report different things in different ways...

I didn't realize that I would start choking up the moment we walked into the Peace Park, but on reflection I really should have expected that )

And now we're back in our ryokan, winding down and getting ready for bed. Tomorrow we'll go do the temple walk in Onomichi, I hope!
