A Taste of Japan

Saturday Justin, my friends April and Brook and I went to the Japanese Fall Festival at the Botanical Gardens here in Fort Worth. The weather was beautiful, it was around 65 to 70 degrees outside and very sunny! It was a perfect day for being outside. When we got there, we watched a few traditional Japanese dances. They were really neat. Here is a picture from the dances:


After the dances we went to the food section of this event. This was alot of fun, they had sushi tasting, beans, rice rolls, and miso soup. It was very yummy! After the sushi stop, we went and watch a traditional Japanese Drum Presentation.


And here are just a couple of pictures of us hanging out in the Japanese Garden:



This trip to the festival confirmed in me the passion I already have for Japan and the people who live there. I really hope to visit the real country sometime, but for now this was alot of fun too!

Japan is one of those places that I feel like we, as Christians in America, really dropped the ball after WWII. Japan for this first time in history opened up it's doors and we did not step through. Instead American consumerism did and as you can tell from Tokyo today, they ate it right up! Just think if the send a mass M. movement in at that time. How different might that county be?
