Recently, we have become friends with the Inouchi Family. Yoko is the nurse at my former high school downtown and she and her family love speaking to foreigners. Last month we were invited to her son's birthday party and last week we were invited again to her daughter's birthday. After lunch the family took us to a nearby shrine in Saitama (a neighboring prefecture). Here are some pictures of the temple grounds from our new i-phones. Thanks go out to the Inouchi family for another great day.
