I Love Autumn In Japan!

Growing up in Texas, I rarely got to experience autumn.

The old joke is there are four seasons in Texas: summer, less summer, not summer, and becoming summer.  

Here in Japan you get to enjoy all four seasons (though I rarely enjoy the cold winter). There are even an array of “autumn” foods like pumpkin soup, chestnut lattes, and nabe dishes. The list goes on.

Before it got really chilly, I went to Kamakura to enjoy the fall leaves and even ate some pumpkin soup.  The weather was perfect.  There was so much red, gold, and burnt orange!

Here are a few pictures of the experience.

I had fish and chips (a bit greasy, but good) and a little “pudding” desert while I studied Japanese for a bit.  I’m going to miss autumn, the loveliest season of them all.

When I was in my twenties, I moved to Japan and met a man there. We embarked on our adventure through life and love. I have lived with him in Japan ever since. We want to start a family, but that is proving difficult. I struggle with infertility. We almost had a child, but that ended in tragedy. Now we enjoy each day and hope that one day we'll hear the pitter-patter of little feet and the bubbly laughter of a child. In the meantime, I enjoy writing, love, studying, traveling, and working. These posts are my thoughts and stories of my life here.
