さよなら Sayonara

Unfortunately, today is my last day in Japan. I am traveling to the West Coast of the United States, so this post marks the end in this chapter of DekoBoko. I am unsure what the ultimate fate of the blog will be at this time. I am sure to continue taking pictures, so perhaps I will continue to post from my new residence and from my future travels. I am sure that the posting will halt for a time as I settle into a new routine. If you are interested please check back in a few weeks and I will let you know what, if anything, will become of DekoBoko.

To those of you who have spent your precious time viewing my amateur attempts at photography, and tolerated my dry and pointless prose . . . I thank you!!!

I would especially like to thank everyone who has commented, including the regulars: Kat & Satoshi's from "Our Adventures in Japan" which is a really fun food journal of Japan, A. and Y. Ikeda from "Tochigi Daily Photo" (+2 other great blogs) which are stunning and informative photography journals (I will miss participating in Show-me-Japan), and last but not least Anzu from Ann & Natsu, who has a super cute furry family.



  1. aw, sad to see you go, good luck on the west coast! maybe see you sometime in Hawaii!

  2. I found fantastic Japan and funny character goods in Japan through your eyes. I'm especially pleased with wonderful and powerful Kobe city.
    Don't say さよなら。(ノ´ー`)ノヾ(´^`ヾ))) See you later.
    Fortunately, we can meet each other anywhere in the world. Please have a nice journey ! p(^(エ)^q=p^(エ)^)q

  3. We will miss you!!! I hope you will continue blogging. And even better - I hope that you still have a stack of photos from Japan that never saw the light of day (or internet, to be precise). And I hope that you just maybe perhaps would consider posting one of them a week. On weekends, naturally. :-)

    Thank you so much for a wonderful blog and I hope we'll see each other again soon!
    Take care,
    Anna (and Yoshi, though I'm sure he will leave his own comment soon).

    PS> Have a safe trip!!!

  4. I agree with Anzu. No saying "さよなら" to us.
    We will miss you so much but I am looking forward to seeing updates on your blog.
    Have a wonderful and safe trip!

  5. Beautiful surfing through your blog on your experience in Japan and good luck !

  6. Oh you had left Japan already. I missed your blog. I'm looking forward to your new post.
    Bon voyage!

  7. おげんきですか?
