We have a new addition joining our family!

I am excited to share that my husband and I are expecting a baby girl this summer :) It’s our first child and we are very excited yet nervous for this upcoming journey as new parents. Apologies in advance as there will be a period where I won’t be able to update the blog as much, but I hope to continue posting as much as I can in the near future.

Above are photos from our lovely Baby Shower♡ We had about fifty of our dear friends and family celebrate with us and we are so grateful and thankful. We literally had nothing and now we have everything from a stroller and crib to multiple beautifully hand knitted blankets and more! We look forward to welcoming this new life and introducing the little one to you soon.

Maki

Went hiking at Muir Woods National Park located 1hr North of San Francisco, CA. We went on the perfect day where it wasn’t too cold or too warm and we had a great time exploring the famous redwoods and enjoying our hike throughout this beautiful and quiet park full of vibrant greenery. As you may already know, I love hiking and have climbed Mt. Fuji, Takaosan, Komagatake, Half Dome in Yosemite, etc and now adding Muir Woods to my repertoire :)

They have multiple trails to choose from and you can mix the trails too which is nice. We got there first thing in the morning when the park opened at 8am and had a great ~4 hour hike. We then headed to Muir Beach and explored a bit plus stopped by Marin Country Mart as well.

Tokyo Eats Guide Book

Thank you so much for your amazing response and interest in the Tokyo Eats Guide Book and a special thanks to those of you who have already purchased a copy!! I have gotten emails & comments from readers and friends from all over the world and couldn’t be happier or more thankful for your love and support :)

……………………………………………………

I also wanted to take this opportunity to answer three questions I’ve received from several readers:

1) Is the guide book sold in local book stores in Japan?

The Tokyo Eats Guide Book is only available for online orders at the moment as I am self-publishing the book. I chose this company (which is owned by Amazon) so that it would be easier for English-language speakers to purchase. However, it seems like shipping to Japan doesn’t take too long since I’ve received some emails from readers and friends who received their copies relatively quickly. I will definitely keep you updated in the future should the book become available directly in Japan.

2) Is a PDF version of the Tokyo Eats Guide Book available?

Unfortunately there is no PDF or eBook version at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

3) How long does shipping take?

The book will be shipped from the United States. Please check HERE for the estimated delivery time to your country.

Thank you!

Happy Halloween!

I recently went back to Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Disney Sea and they were both filled with Halloween spirit. It was my first time going up to the observation deck and it really was an impressive view – I highly recommend it. Disney Sea was just amazing as always but I gotta say we might have had the most successful and fun trip this time around ;)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.
