Our daughter-in-law Tomomi, grandson Takanori, and Tomomi's mother, Unmeyo, in Japan. Luckily Tomo's family lives in the southern part of Japan, not on the northern coast where the earthquake hit. However, the whole country will be affected by this tragedy for years to come.

Just heard that Tokuhide (grandpa - ojiisan - "Jiji") was in Tokyo on business when the earthquake hit and had to spend one night in the train station. Thankfully, he is safe with friends now.
A Japanese meal is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Tomomi and her mother are both excellent cooks. This was taken at Tomomi's parents' home in Wakayama.
