2013/01/04 Thank you for staying.

are from Germany and some of them have lived in Tokyo since last July.

It was the 2nd time for them to come to Shimoda, and they stayed at
Sakuraya for the 1st time as their friends who stayed at Sakuraya 2
years ago recommended them our Pension.

When they checked out they said,
"We will come back here with my sister in law this summer."

We were very glad to hear that!

Thank you
for staying with us and we are looking forward to meeting you in summer.

2013/01/03 Shirahama Shrine

130103jinja01We went to the nearest shrine called
'Shirahama Jinja' this afternoon for the 1st time this year.

Most of
Japanese go to the shrine at the beginning of the new year to pray the
health and the good luck for this year.

It was very cold there but there were a lot of people at the shrine.



130103jinja02My second daughter works
as 'Miko' , a shrine maiden for the 1st time of her life.

It had been
very hard for her to work outside because of the cold wind, but it will
be a good experience for her.
