Crown Prince and Princess Return to Japan

Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako returned to Japan after a six day trip to the Netherlands to attend the new Dutch King’s inauguration ceremony in Amsterdam.  The Princess’s parents live in a hotel in Amsterdam, where her 80 year old father currently serves as a judge on the International Court of Justice in the Hague. How interesting is that?

When I was out for a walk yesterday, I saw the first squirrel since the fall.  Maybe this means spring in Hokkaido. (You can tell this is a Hokkaido squirrel by the hairy ears!)
