Tokyo Stay – January 1, 2012, the Last Day

After celebrating the new year, we exchanged presents.

Katya gave me a winter scarf and an ear warmer.

I gave Katya a pair of gloves I bought in Odaiba yesterday.

Then we went to sleep.

In the morning, the hotel provided everyone with Sake.

Other than that, there was nothing for celebrating a new year, which was a pity. Strings Tokyo has good rooms and spaces, but it seems to me that they lack a simple hospitality. It should be more of a hotel for businessmen.

We checked out and went to Shinjuku to hang around.

Then we visited my parents to celebrate a new year’s day together. The trains took nearly three hours from Shinjuku and we slept a bit.

My sister, her daughter, and Anju the dog were there, too. My bother and his family will be visiting my parents tomorrow.

We had a big new-year dinner. I should have taken pictures.

Mom gave us my old albums she had been keeping. Katya and I saw the pictures and talked about them after coming back home in Kofu with Maya-san.

    明けましておめでとうございます!It’s been a long time since I’ve been doing any serious blogging, and I’ve been very slack on holidays. Still, it’s nice to be doing nothing (and my chances of having quiet time is rapidly disappearing). It sounds like you all had a great New Years (those old photo albums must be fun to go through – and embarrassing). Best wishes to yourself, Katya and of course Maya-san.
