Konnichiwa!

こんにちは。

 

Now you know how to greet people in Japanese! :)))

 

(Behind-the-scene: Bound back for the States, we were on a lay-over at Tokyo-Narita International in Japan. I gave my little Cara (and my self) a little tour of the airport to keep her from getting bored. We saw this cool noodle mini-resto. I ate udon noodles, she had ice cream. And then we saw these cute ceramic dolls in a nearby shop. I thought they would be cool souvenirs for Cara to keep to remind her of this stop in Japan. I was curious about what it was called so I asked the shopkeeper. I asked him to kindly translate the Japanese characters neatly written across their bellies. He did translate a mouthful but all I can remember was KONNICHIWA!. Cara was very happy. I was very happy. Lucio captured this for the memories.)
