Goto Apartment, Machida, Tokyo

Today was a public holiday, so I didn't need to go into Shinjuku. My host mom took me to Risukoen, sort of a squirrel petting zoo. I got to feed squirrels out of my hand, that was pretty fun. We went for a walk through a local park and visited a tea house, too.

AA and Dad called to wish me a happy birthday.

Later, another family came over for the evening. We had lots of fun. They even shut off the lights, said "surprise!", and brought out a cake with candles!

It's late now.
