And this is how I spent my Thanksgiving weekend. Koedo (“Little Edo”) Kawagoe on Saturday afternoon, with a good friend to keep me company and take some great photos for me. We feasted on Unagi (eel), had lots of delicious dessert food as we walked around the streets of Koedo, then trekked over to Kawagoe Castle, the second castle in Japan that I’ve been to since I moved here. Everything was so beautiful. Life is beautiful and I am so happy to be alive. Just too thankful this year despite all of the ups and heavy downs this year.
