Momo taro in the 21st century

Last year after a morning taiko concert helping advocate for “no trash” i was lucky enough to get a new version of a classic japanese tale.  I was uptight because we were running late.  As we went on the  road headed towards one of the stores, i said nothing.  After we on the right path, i began to explain how i knew how to get there but also about my worries of being late.  My chauffeur explained how it did not matter that our teacher was just happy to have us on his adventures.  Now i know why we were told to smile during the performances. It is universal for being happy.

having lived in japan for 3.5 years i wish to "go back to the island" as often as i can. i lived from 1999-2003. i went back in 2007, then again in 2011. i am a full time teacher, so the best time to go for me is during the summer vacation. it works out well because i love the sensational feelings i get in japan during the summer...especially playing taiko and eating lots of ma-cha ice.
