Kanreki

In Japan, the 60th birthday, known as Kanreki, is a very big deal.  You can read more about it here, if you are interested.  Ted was in Tokyo for a conference and some friends there hosted a birthday party for him.  


We celebrate birthdays for a month, not just a day, so Ted is having a very big Kanreki.
