If you ever get the opportunity, please visit Okinawa! I had heard this song several times during my sixteen years in Japan, and ashamed that I just now learned the title and artist. Begin has been playing music for 20+ years, with a big fan base. I love this song…and very uplifting to me.
A new year has begun, and we get to enjoy osetchi again this year! The traditional osechi is very elaborate, and can be very expensive…depending on how it is prepared. We always just put together our favorite items, and we enjoy it. Here are some photos from this years osetchi, but click the link below to find out more!
