A look into the life of Jabble teachers/staff.


Here is a picture of my wife and I in front of Kaminarimon in Asakusa.
To be honest, it wasn’t our first temple visit of the year. It was our second. 😂 (We had actually done hatsumode at a shrine in Narashino City in Chiba.)

Can I ask our Japanese readers a couple questions?

1. In Japanese, how do you use it in a sentence? “Do” hatsumode? In English, we say to our English-speaking friends, “I did hatsumode.”
2. Can you do hatsumode at both shrines and temples? When I looked it up in my Japanese dictionary, it says “first shrine visit.” So I’m curious…🤔

Sunset at Inage Kaigan beach


On January 1st, I decided to take a walk down to Inage Kaigan beach to see the sunset. I’d heard that you could see mount Fuji and everyone on the beach was lucky enough to have an almost cloud free sunset. The picture is nice but Mount Fuji looked much bigger in person. If you have a chance, go to Inage Kaigan beach for a beautiful sunset.
