Sushi, Paper Cranes and Yukatas

Posted on Wednesday July 07, 2010 at 1:21am in ,

Kiyoko, my Nagasaki host mom has been staying at our place for the last week. In the meantime, she is sleeping in my room and I have been relocated to the basement. I have my laptop down here, my summer class work (Trigonometry), and a TV. She brought us some clothes from Japan as a gift and gave them to us today. Her son, Hideko also made us some pottery.

Mom got a jinbei.

And so did Dad.

I already had a jinbei, so she got me a yukata.

Mackenzie was at work when we got these gifts, so her pictures are at the end. Today, we all made sushi together!
