Japan Day

| | Comments (1)
Today we had a very Japanese-themed day. 

Except maybe the cleaning of the house that we spent all morning doing.. hrmmm

So at lunch Nat and Andrew came over and we ate lots and "viewed the flowers" - aka "hanami"!   It was super awesome.  I cooked heaps of food, and will have leftovers for at least ten meals (and now for my next trick - finding freezer space!)  It was pretty cold and windy, so we decided to setup inside.  But we did have the blue tarpaulin and we could see the tree, so it's still authentic!

Afterwards the others watched a very strange Japanese movie while I geotagged Alnwick Castle photos.

Then we all headed into ANU to see Za Kabuki.  There was a lot in Japanese only, so it was a bit tricky to know what was going on (you could sort of get the general gist).  The main play itself (The Sardine Seller's Net of Love) was mostly in Japanese, but a bit of English as well which certainly helped (the story was outlined on the program too so we at least knew what was going on).  Bizarrely, all the female characters in the main play were played by guys and vice-versa - very odd!!  They very nicely allowed photos (just no flash).

Thank you for these photos!
I was in this play, and needed them for a school project. People like you make the internet great!
