Japan for the first time in 7 years!

I went to Japan for the first time in 7 years.

Many people ask me what I miss about Japan besides family and friends, such as food. My answer is... nothing. I am used to American life style and I can get most of the things I want even in the US. There are Japanese restaurants and Japanese stores.I can read Japanese online, and I can watch the Japanese news.

So I didn't know what I should do when I went back to Japan.

However I enjoyed visiting Japan. I already forgot about many things in Japan and also thought that many things have changed since I left. So I was totally like a foreigner who is visiting Japan.
I found interesting things by looking at everything through "foreigners' eyes", and I took a lot of pictures as a tourist, too. So I would like to talk about it!

Amigurumi is a Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals. Since they are so adorable, I wanted many worldwide people to know about the culture and started making amigurumi here in the US.
I am still not thinking to make money by selling them  but I am happy if amigurumi makes people happy.

There are just some of them I made...

I designed and handcrafted all of those animals.
Please check out more cute animals in my little store "TreeTownBear" on Etsy! :)
