Getting Ready for Japan!

July 19, 2012 § 1 Comment

It’s been a long time since I uploaded on here, but I’m glad to say that almost everything is good to go for me to go back to Japan. Only 12 more days until I depart for Japan!
My WONDERFUL sister, Riho, booked the hotel and the bus in Ishinomaki for a very reasonable price in Ishinomaki. They have internet connection so I will be able to update all of you during my stay there.

I received my film in the mail, which are Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Portra 160 and 400, Fuji Astia 100 and Fuji Pro 160s. I got the Ektar and Fujis in 120, and Portra in 220. There’s so many!! And being a photo nerd, I am soooo excited to use it all :)

My mom has been working on these crochet cats for a while now, and I plan to bring them back to Ishinomaki for the kids I meet. They’re cute and snuggly. She plans to make more of them and put eyes on it so they’re not faceless.

I also received handmade scarves and clothes as a donation from the Japanese American Citizens League. They’ve been wanting to send them to the Tsunami affected areas but got denied because of shipping. So I volunteered to bring them to Japan and hand it out to senior communities. For the cold winters in Ishinomaki, I think this gift would be perfect.

I’m working on the last bit of the cranes for the $30 and under backers, and then I’m off to Japan! Thanks for your support and your patience. I promise I’ll bring back a bunch of pictures! :)
