I arrived safe and sound this morning, and glad that I'm not actually MADE of my namesake because I would have melted in this Australian heat!

Tokyo, Japan - 12th February 2008

By: Cockie

Chocolate arrived me here in Tokyo in the rainy afternoon.
He is a cutieee boy. He looked a little bit tired from a long journey from Australia.
It is a very cold outside, so he is with me in a cozy and well warm room. If weather is permitted, I am going to show him
around my area this weekend.
He is very fine now and will enjoy his first exploration in Tokyo.

Tokyo, Japan - 16th March 2008

By: Cockie

It has been more than a month since Chocolate arrived here in my house last month. I have been quite busy with some other things and weather in Tokyo was gloomy and windy in cold winter.

Today, on March 16 weather has turned to be very fair just like a spring, so I have finally taken him to the downtown area of Tokyo. The most famous temple in Tokyo is called
Sensou-ji Temple in Asakusa.
I took some pictures of him at this temple. As the climate was very mild, there were crowded with many tourists including overseas visitors. This temple is a kind of a melting pot of races in Tokyo. I heard people speaking in English, German, Spanish and some unknown languages.

The temple has a long history. The shopping arcade leading to the mail hall of Sensou-ji Temple is in full of enjoyment. There are many kinds of Japanese souvenirs such as dolls,magnets, pins or postcards. I can say that you can find anyting whatever you want.

I found somehing nice for Chocolate's mother at souvenior shop. I prayed for his next safe voyage to Germany in the main hall of the temple.

After spending busy hours there, we went to Ueno close to Asakusa by subway. Ueno has some famous art museums and a famous Ueno Zoo. I took photos of Chocolate in front of Western national art gallery in Ueno Park. When autumn come, some ineteresting art enents are held at some art musems in Ueno. I love to watch art works, so I sometimes
viist Ueno when I have some free time.

Here are 2 photos of Ueno Stations, whish may be interesting to see one of Japanese normal stations in Tokyo.
Tomorrow I am going to take him some spots in my neighborhood. Hope that he will enjoy seeing them.

Tokyo, Japan - 20th March 2008

By: Cockie


It has been raining or very cloudy since last Sunday. I wanted Chocolate to take him around my neighborhood, but it is not luck about fine weather yet.
Weather forecast says that cherry blossoms will start bloom this weekend, if weather is fine. I will keep my fingers crossed for a mild spring weenend.

I took a picture in front of town city hall in my area. Chocolate and my future toy, Uri-bou sits on the chair. Can everyone see them? It is too small to figure out them :rolleyes:

This is Japanese funny dance that perfomed at Ueno Station when we just went through inside the station. it was a pity that we could not see all dance performances.

I really hope that I can see him a little bit of beautiful cherry blossom before leaving for the next destination, Germany, so I pray for fair weather this weekend.

Tokyo, Japan - 21st March 2008

Happy Easter from Japan :p
We don't celebrate Easter at all in Japan, so we don't have any holidays in Tokyo, either.
No luck for fine weather today. Very wendy and gets cold again. I took chocolate and my future toy voyger, Uri-bou aroud my area.
I live in the uptown, residential area in Tokyo. Compared with the downtown area, Asakusa, this is much quieter than that place. Here are some pictures of Chocolate and Uri-bou taken today in the public park.

After we took a short walk in the park, I just visited a post office to post some cards to overseas. Here is the picture.

We went to a nearby railway station to have some break.
We have many Starbucks cafes in Tokyo. I ordered greentea late and spinach maffin. They were so yummy.

Maybe on Sunday we will expect a little bit of Cherry blossoms here. Hopefully!

Tokyo, Japan - 23rd March 2008

By: Cockie

Tomorrow Chocolate flies to the next destination, Germany, so today is his last day to stay with me here in Tokyo.
My decision was right. Some of cherry blossoms start to bloom in my neighborhood. We had a mild spring weather in Tokyo. We visited again the public part to take some photos of Chocolate with cherry blossoms. Here are these pictures.

http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc287/cockie_mieko/GetAttachment5.jpg

At least he could view them before going for Germany. Weather forecast declared that cherry blossoms in Tokyo started to bloom. It is a great pity that he can not see real beauty of these blossoms. Especially a night view is really wonderful.

I also prepared for our traditional dishes for him.
Rice, Miso soup, Tofu hamburg and other simple vegetable meals.

I do hope that he enjoy staying, seeing and experiencing Japanese life with me. He could take enough rest and some refreshment. After Chocolate leaves here, I will miss him so much. but the next kind host is waiting for him.
Please keep a nice and great journey throughout the world.
Please take care, Chocolate! Good luck to him.

Today Chocolate arrived in Germany after a long journey from Japan. He was really tired and he only wanted to sleep. Therefore I was able to take only some photos, which I will show to you during the next days. Chocolate came together with some great Japanese chocolate - I promised him to eat this chocolate together with him during the next days ;) !

Sorry, you had to wait for so long, but here are the news and pictures from Chocolate.

When Chocolate arrived, I found two wonderful Japanese chocolates and we ate it together. Then Chocolate was really tired. He didn't have to sleep alone during the first night in a new country. Two other special bears took care of him.

After the first week, Hoppity and Chocolate have become good friends. They are really funny and they like to play. Therefore we went to the playground. On the way they couldn't wait and Chocolate started riding on Hoppity. They loved the time on the playground - especially the time when they could play in the sand.

Cologne, Germany - 21st April 2008

By: Tine1969

On Chocolate last trip we went to Cologne. We started with a big burger - Chocolate really loved fast food ;) and then we went through the city, meeting a gorilla, watching at some old Roman walls, walking to the Rhine and visiting the Cologne Cathedral.

After that trip Chocolate left us - and now he's going to England, of course with some German chocolate in his envelope :) !

Bye-bye Chocolate...

Honiton, Devon, UK - 2nd May 2008

By: drakie

Well to be honest, I arrived here very safely but in all honestly my host was a bit slow on the uptake...  if you know what I mean.  But as they say better late than never... I have been having fun here, I have met Count, Henry the Adventure Hound, Shirley Sheep, Mocke so we have had good fun.  Lots of updates but today I helped my host pack for her holiday ... she is going with a girlfriend to the Dominican Republic so thats quite exciting to go onto a plane etc.  and to sit in the sun as Honiton doesnt get much of that.

I did help her pack and tried on her swimming costumre but decided getting wet was not my cup of tea.  Packed my sunglasses too.
