    I really enjoyed your talk about the politics and vigour of Japan. My knowledge of Japan is pretty much limited to James Clavelle’s novels from many years ago – Shogun, Taipan, . . . I should read them again! It is very nice that we parents left at home can learn about the places our children our visiting in some small way. I just found these today, so I will have to keep up with it!
