So, headed out to see the Hachioji Castle ruins today. Its really just some steps that once led up to the castle, however the surrounding grounds are very beautiful. After that, we celebrated my host dad's birthday and played with some fireworks.

Shin-chan, Yuri-chan, and mom

This is a newly built bridge, however the original is where everyone committed suicide after Hachioji Castle was overthrown

Huge steps. Haha.

Oh wait…. I wasn't supposed to go in there? hehe.

Yes, it is a little known fact that a koala is the same size as a panda and hippo.

At the bakery. mmmmm

Selecting cake

“Happy Birthday Papa”

Tried having fun with long time exposure. This is Yuri-chan running around with some fireworks.

Shin-chan stood very still. I love this pic

I like the smaller fireworks better. They just sorta fizzle and they are relaxing to look at.

Well, that's all for Hachioji
