Random Pictures

18 Jul

There are vending machines all over the place. You can sometimes see as many as 15 or more lined up. It's like a whole store on a sidewalk!

Some cereal choices


About half the size of a smart car!

It seems like every open spot of land in the country or the city is planted with rice this time of year.

Beautiful rice fields

Castle in Fukuchiyama. First one that we have seen.

We know there are more out there - but we found these "lost sheep"!

    We love seeing some of the things you are seeing! The kids are quite certain Torben wouldn’t be able to get in that car. 🙂

    Janna: I love these photos! It’s so fun for us on the other side of the globe, to see what Japan looks like through your eyes! Keep the photos coming!

    Janna: This is so fun was waiting for more since the 10th and all of a sudden lots of things to see. Mom and Dad doing well saw them on Friday. Heard Dana saw them on Sunday. Keep this going so much fun.

    Brother and Sister Zinke,
    My son should have arrived there today/yesterday (who knows with the time difference!) all by himself. His name is Elder Zachary Batis. I sure hope he made it there safe and sound. It’s so fun to see these pictures of the boys he was in the MTC with. He was so excited and so anxious to get to you! Thanks for taking the time to do this blog. I look forward to lots of pictures!
