20th January, 2018

We went to USUI Department Store
and had a light lunch @ Afternoon Tea. 





Then we walked to Chikako's dentist's office for her appointment. 
Enroute we passed the graves of her Mother's Family. 
Munakata. 







Walking back to the small rental apartment
we saw a bonsai outside a barber's shop, on the kerbside. 

It is interesting that the weather has been relatively fine
and the temperature today was about 10c.  Not so cold. 

I took these photos to show Stavros as he is now a bonsai-owner. 




During our earlier visit to USUI
we went to Morning in the basement
to purchase  a birthday cake for tonight's dinner
with Chikako's parents in their house. 



Oh, they have new owl noren hanging at the entrance to the kitchen. 
Very swish ! 




 Nabe for the birthday dinner. 
And some squid for me ..... yum yum. 








Toyoo's birthday .... January 16th. 
It was nice to share this event with him, albeit slightly late.
