Hi Obachan! Well, it's sort of funny calling someone an obachan when I, myself is one! I was born just a couple of years after you and have a niece and nephew in Mito, in the Ibaraki prefecture. I happened to come across your older blog then eventually read up to date on your more current blogs. You pictures, recipes and story about your parents really hit home with me as my parents are not getting any younger as I am here (Arizona, USA) and they are in Japan. I look forward to checking your blog often now that I've found it.

By the way, your English is fabulous. I've grown up in the states (have been here for 26 years now, phew!) and I'd say your written English is way better than some US born College kids for sure!

Have a wonderful & lovely New year!

Hi Obachan
I used to read your old blog but then somehow lost you. So glad to find you again.

Here's to a wonderful new year for both of us

Happy new year Obachan! Gorgeous shot of the sunrise. Personally I am glad to see 2009 go and look forward to 2010. May we both have a happy, prosperous, healthy and peaceful new year.

Happy New Year! Your sushi boxes look so wonderful! I was fortunate to spend New Year in Japan 5 years ago. What a fantastic time to be in Japan. My daughter and I love your strawberry santa by the way. So cute!
I made an attmept to make omanju this year, but something went terribly wrong. Do you happen to have a recipe for omanju? Otherwise I will just try to find another on the internet. I should have thought of asking you in the first place!

Happy New Year! So happy to have found your blog. You're a great writer. You should turn your old blog and this one into a book. Cheers! :) Lenore

Hello dear Obachan. :)

I spent the first few days of the new year in Miyajima and Hiroshima. They're both absolutely stunning places, but alas, I didn't get to see a stunning sunrise like you. :)

おばちゃん、明けましておめでとうございます。 ^_^;

obachan said...

Thank you, everyone!
I truly appreciate your warm new year's wishes, either written here or quietly whispered in front of the screen or even in your mind.

Hope you are having a great start of 2010.


I love reading your blog and wish you lots of happy hours in 2010. Much patience and humour and health, too, and overall less centipedes ;)

obachan said...

Yeah, definitely a lot less centipedes! LOL

Thanks for your caring wishes.
