Japanese Joy!

On our recent trip to Japan we stayed at K's Guesthouse in Hakuba. Our hosts, Megumi and Toshi, really looked after us; they are wonderful people and have become good friends. We feel privileged to have stayed with them. Jo's mom, Jane, recently knitted a toy bear for Megumi, (as she'd taken a real shine to the bear that Jane had taken to Japan) The bear, and other gifts, have now made their way to Japan and can be seen here in this photo. As you can see, Megumi is thrilled! The other photo is of Megumi's partner, Toshi, walking amongst the Rice fields around Hakuba...How serene it looks...
