Leaving on a Jet Plane

Off to China again, this time on business to attend a conference in Ningbo.  (Where’s that?!)

My first at NRT.  Went to the wrong terminal and took the inter-terminal shuttle.  ^^

So many good films.

Difficult to choose a best but this was probably most memorable in a surprising way.  It was better than what the Japanese trailer tried to show which I think is rare.

I had to stay home for a week last week having caught the flu during which time I missed a couple of films I really wanted to see.  😦

Very difficult to pick one favorite.  Maybe the one I saw last, a film by young Canadian director Xavier Dolan which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, though all the fighting in the film was rather heavy.  Most excellent actors.

Happy 2017!

New year’s is the most important holiday for the Japanese people as there is no other time of the year during which families get together in a major way.  So I am “home” with my parents and doing the festive thing which I love.

Starting with the new year’s eve.

To be eating noodles is a thing to do to wish for long and healthy life.

To be eating soba at the end of the year is a thing to do in order to get rid of bad things that may have happened during the year due to the fact that Japanese soba cuts easily.

First breakfast of the year.

And more sake in the evening

Happy new year to all!!
