Cycling Japan


Today I had a surprise guest from England stop by to check out Shimizu.  He is on a two month cyciling tour around Japan and  he cycled up to Shimizu to check out where I was living.  I got to show him around town and also we helped out at the Sansho Farm in town.



We also cycled to Koyasan to stay at a Temple.  The ride up was vary peacefull and beautiful.  If u have a chance I hilghly recommend it.



TV Crew


Today a TV crew came out from Tokyo to Shimizu to film a episode about Sansho Farmers and what they eat for lunch. This NHK TV program travals all around Japan to film  people in all professions to find out what kinds of things they eat for lunch while they are at work.  Its a very popular show in Japan.  We were blessed with nice weather and  had a great time.  Thanks again!

To find out what they ate check out Sarameshi on NHK
