Ai Shinozaki’s film debut…


It, um, exploits her talents.

And it’s called “Pantsu no Ana”.

Rest In Peace, Cynthia Myers


I'm not a big one for sharing feelings on my blog, but Cynthia was a warm, wonderful human being, and I will miss her.

...and I can't resist sharing the first picture I ever saw of her...

This should be fun


By royal request, I have secured reservations for a nice tea ceremony, traditional lunch, and kimono dress-up lesson, after stumbling across the web site of Tondaya. This will be a nice way to relax on our first full day in Kyoto. I can’t trust the extended weather forecasts this far out, but at the moment it looks like there’s only one day with a chance of occasional showers, and “mostly sunny” for the rest of the trip.
