Wednesday in Japan... more Christmas Cards

A few more Christmas Cards from the Japanese point of view.

A stand-up pop-out ramen cart with Santa.
The really cute bowl of ramen is a phone charm.
Too bad my phone doesn't have a loop for charms.
But I wanted to keep it with the card because it so cute and fun.

  7. Those pop up cards are exquisite Parsnip - no wonder you keep them all.

  10. Love the Tokaido Road one! My mother is a docent at the Freer and Sackler Museums in Washington. They had a Hiroshige exhibit within the past couple of years. His map of the Tokaido was included - very cool. I love how most if not all of the road stations have become train stations since. Old habits die hard!

  11. Glow in the dark ball looks like fun--and might be important on a Tokaido journey. LOL
