Oh, it was a long time until I knew, where I will travel first, but now I know, that it will be JAPAN!!!!  :D
I played a last game table soccer and tried a look out of the window. I'm so happy to leave this rainy home.
(No, Sabrina, I'm not happy to leave you, but the rain, so don't be sad) I hope, when some guests will visit my family, they will have better weather B), maybe sunshine???? I heard, that my hometown can be beautiful then. Here are photos of my last play and the tree behind our house.

postoffice in Bruchsal, Germany - 17th March 2007

By: fam-united

Hi there, so long ago that there was something new about myself. Today is the special day: I will travel to Japan. I saw the garden for the last time. I wanted to see the spring flowers in the sun before I travel. It was so nice to be outside after that long time of rainy weather and before being in a box for about 8 days. I heard the weather forecast, that winter will come back to Germany, so I'm happy, I'm on my way now.
I looking forward to coming out of that small box again.

Kanazawa, Japan - 23rd March 2007

By: yumi

It was a sunny day today.
Yumi took me a couple of places in Kanazawa where is the
biggest city of Ishikawa.

First, I went to Nagamachi where Samurais used to live there.
The houses they lived are conserved or rebuit. The walls are
made with mad, so it is fragile. I visited a few small museums
in Nagamachi. The museums show how the old people lived.
The pictures were taken at the entrance, kitchen and living
room(dining room)

Ishikawa, Japan - 25th March 2007

By: yumi

Before I tell about other places where I visited on Friday, I
want you to know that we had a big earthquake here this
morning.
I was really scared and shocked!!
Fortunately, we had no damage and everything is ok.
DO NOT WORRY!!
Yumi told me that the earthquake resistered an intensity of 4
on the Japanese scale here, but one of nealy 7 in the
northern part of Ishikawa, one woman was killed and over
160 people were injured and some people has lost their
houses.
Yumi also told me that an earthquake comes in Japan very
often but she hasn't had a such big one before.

Ishikawa, Japan - 27th March 2007

By: yumi

Don't worry!! Yumi, her family and I are doing well, but
there were still a few small earthquakes. We're nervous....



Anyway, I heard the good news from fam-united that I
became Voyager of the week!! I'm very happy.

But the photo is not tea ceremony...Sorry but yumi's
explanation wasn't enough.

This is a dining room of Japanese old style. We now have
meals at one big table, but the old people used to have their
own table for meals. At present, the traditional Japanese-style
restaurant called Ryoutei is used this style-one table per one
person.

I hope you understand what I said.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask yumi.

Kanazawa, Japan - 28th March 2007

By: yumi

On Friday, I went to Oyama jingya after the museums.
Jingya means 'shrine' in Japanese.

Yumi told me that this shrine is dedicated to the first load of
Kaga, Toshiie Maeda and inlaid grass in the uppermost
section of the three-tired gate gives it an exotic appearance.

You can see the main building of Oyama jingya.

We have to wash our hands at first, because it is a sacred
place here.

You can see Ema whch are a boar (the animal of the year)
drawn on wood, the upper part of which has a roof and
presented to temples and shrines when making vows or
when one's prayers has been answered.

Yumi took me some other places in Kanazawa today.

At first, I was taken a few photo in front of Kanazawa station.
The red wooden gate that represents a hand drum is the symbol of the station.
The fountain looks unique and intersting.
The Japanese means 'Welcome to Kanazawa'

Then, I found an old house and could come in.
I could see a beautuful cherry tree from the house.

Then, I found a beautiful sidewalk. There were some statues
along the sidewalk. It looked like a museum! I was taken a
photo with the statue of Saisei Murou who was born in
Kanazawa and was a famous poet and a writer.
