More From the Land of the Rising Sun

Here's another short update from Japan and two pictures. It's about midnight on Saturday in Japan right now, so Kevin will be flying back to the US from Tokyo in about 12 hours. He leaves on Saturday afternoon in Japan and arrives on Saturday afternoon here in the States. He actually gains a day...strange!

Last night we finished work a little early and did some sightseeing. We went to the Tokyo Tower (which I told you about before). It is lit up at night and very cool (see attached picture).

We went up to the observation deck and you could see all of the lights of Tokyo...We also went and saw one act of a Kibuki Theater. It was interesting although the act we saw was mostly dialogue, so it was impossible to tell what was going on.

This morning I was able to get up and go to Mass again, so that was good. I took a picture of the church (see attached picture) for you. There is very little I can pick out by listening. Although for the readings today, I could catch words like "Joseph", "Reuben", and "Egypt". At dinner last night I had some Japanese beer called Asahi. They make a light beer and a dark beer. At the restaurants you can order a "half and half" which is pretty interesting. Kind of like your Arnold Palmer except alcoholic.
