It’s Golden Week in Japan – the name given to a group of national holidays that occur close together. Today was Greenery Day. I think it’s a day when you are supposed to spend time with nature, but the closest I got to anything green today was on my lunch plate. We did consider going out but the horrible thing about national holidays in Japan is that the whole country goes out for the day. Tomorrow I’ll at least brave the crowds at the supermarket as we’ve run out of green thing to eat.
