Tokyo was the last stop on our Japan trip. We previously spent time in Hiroshima, and Kyoto, and in Kyoto we told the kids a spontaneous bedtime story about Konichiwa Kitty and Sayonara Dog. Gabriel told the story and I sang the song, which I determined later ended up sounding a lot like the tune of Keep the Commandments....

We were very intrigued by the notion of a Cat Cafe when we visited Japan. At first it seemed so foreign to us that people would go to a place to play with cats, rather than just have a pet at home. Then we discovered that most places to live in Japan don't allow pets, even though Japanese culture revolves...

The ultimate touristy thing to do, when in Japan, is cross the Shibuya Scramble Crossing. This intersection has five different dedicated crosswalks intersecting six different streets below five different city stop lights.

Two friends who have lived in Japan warned us about the Okonomiyaki. Warned us that we would love it! It’s an authentic Japanese speciality dish cooked teppanyaki style in a back alley restaurant crammed full of people. The bottom consists of a pancake which is then covered in noodles, vegetables, eggs, meat, soy sauce and anything else you desire....

Where organized religion is all but disappeared in the Japanese culture, our family didn't want to miss visiting the LDS temple in Japan. Wherever possible our family makes a point of visiting a LDS temple on our travels. We want to show and teach our children that principles transcend all cultures, fads and history. It's important to stand for...

No words can really quite convey the experience of witnessing the city of Hiroshima first hand. Though Hiroshima is a proper noun and not a verb, it’s difficult to separate the two as Hiroshima is a place defined by its history. A visit to the Peace Memorial Park will offer you a sobering glimpse into the past as you...
